Calling all tent campers! Sometimes you just want to be around other like-minded campers who don’t mind sleeping on the ground without their generators in tow, right? Well then head over to the tent only Grizzly Bear Campground and pitch it like you mean it. Bring along the fishing pole and try catching some brook trout from Grizzly Creek. Bring the camera and binocs to try and see some falcons, eagles, or bighorn sheep around the surrounding wilderness trails. This is a perfect spot for some serious nature therapy, and some peace and quiet.

We showed up on a Thursday night, it was rainy and during a storm so the whole campsite was empty! It was beautiful and near a creek. Great bathrooms, and a super friendly host that had tons of wood.

Great location and right around the corner from Mt. Rushmore! I enjoyed the tents only aspect of the area, it made it seem the sites where secluded. We reserved two nights at #17 and then we reserved a walk-in site #20 for the next two. The bathrooms were kept clean (vault) and the hosts were very nice and answered any questions we had about the area. There is a creek and some trails that were right off the campground. Try to stay in #19, seems to be the most secluded. My only negative was from the 2 families staying three sites down, they let their kids run around camp unattended until about 10:30pm and bright and early the next morning. They also trashed the bathroom unfortunately. I wish everyone had/was taught some camping etiquette.
