This ranch is the home of children's book author Cowgirl Annie. This site is in an abandoned gravel pit so you will be parking on sandy gravel base. There are cottonwood stands close by that you can hike through to the river. A wide variety of wildlife live in this area, so no telling what you my see or hear. You will have a big area to yourselves. I have tried to plan areas so you won't be disturbed by other campers. Wall Drug and the Badlands National P 02ark are about a 20 minute drive.You will be camping in an old gravel pit that provides a gravel base so mud will not be an issue. Cottonwood trees are plentiful. and the river is within a short hiking distance. Some wildlife and birds reside in the gravel pit area. You can explore the property at will. The river has Catfish if you want to fish. This ranch is the home of children's book author, Cowgirl Annie. It was also used to film two movies about the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

Nice family space
We loved camping here! It was a nice private space with the plenty of area for our kids to explore. They absolutely loved looking for unique rocks and the host was gracious enough to bring a few fossils and share her knowledge with our children. They absolutely love her!

We really enjoyed our stay at B. Gravel Pit! It was very quiet and secluded which we really enjoyed! It was close to I-90 and Wall.

B. Gravel Pit
Peaceful, open, quiet place in the cottonwoods. Even though it was high winds on the highway the camp spot had just a slight breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed the solitude and pleasant walkways!

An Exceptional Stay
Don't let the name "Gravel Pit" fool you! This Cheyenne River bottom land has a beautiful setting and views, starting from the riverside, up to the bluffs. The sun filtering through the cottonwoods accompanies the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The bonus is that you have a herd of beautiful cows and calves to talk to, along with birdsong, deer, and the evening coyote serenade. We even enjoyed listening to the rain and storm that rolled in, but the sandy soil, took care of any water that might have muddied out tent site. Do yourself a favor and grab a spot. We will be back whenever we can, as the owner was an excellent host.

An Enjoyable Ranch Stay
The name "Gravel Pit" might be offputting to some, but make no mistake, this Cheyenne river bottomland is beautiful! It's flat land, with copses of cottonwoods, native flowers and grasses that follow the river up to he handsome surrounding bluffs! The level, "gravelly" bases are perfect for tents or RV setups, and are soft enough to accept good purchase for tent pegs. The cows and calves are just a pleasant extra, with birdsong aplenty. Evening and morning views are at your pleasure. Bring your own water, but there is a composting toilet. No campfires, of course,but the views more than make up for and evening fire.
