    Everything is still the same as it was before the new owner. If you act like and idiot your gonna get thrown out. Same as any other campground. We have camped there for 2 years and we have sat and had a few beers around the campfire after wheeling. I would stick with one rule they have and do not bring bottles, or at least do not carry them around the camp.

    This is not really not that big of a deal people. Everything is such drama over here at this site.

    The campground is flat. As a matter of fact before it was a campground it was a corn field. If you don't want to camp there, don't. We are not going to get a special deal no matter how many we bring. If you do not camp there you will have to load up on the trailer each night and head about 10 miles to the campground, then head back to badlands and wait in line to get in the park. From the Attica campground, all you have to do is get in your trail rig and drive up to the gate and go in. This is the last time I explain this. I will see you all in June!!!


    By the way Rick, I am camping at attica.

    Summers is a nice camp ground I stayed there last time I went to the Badlands. Nice clean sites and had hot showers too!

    I myself plan on staying where the "group" stays as I would like to hang out and meet as many people as I can.

    I'm at the Attica campground. I've stayed at both and I would rather put up with no shade than the golf cart police at Summers. :rolleyes:

    By the way Attica has hot showers, a small store that sells ice cream, candy bars, ice, etc...

    Dman - got you covered for camping gear if need be. I've got an 8 man, 5man, and a 2man tent and I aint using them all...

    Rick - I'll be at the Attica campground too.

    PS Cableguy's right about the rules being the same.....just don't get stupid and we'll be fine.

    I posted something about this on TRS, and also saw it on RRORC. I am planning to attend as well, I've got a few wheeling buddies that are also planning to come along. I'm looking forward to it! :thumbsup:

    Question... I would like to setup a potluck dinner for our group on
    Saturday night. Would it be alright to hold this at the campground
    even if some of the attendees of the dinner may not be camping with you?
    I just sent another email to her asking if it's ok to park next to your tents.

    My e-mails with the new owners say that the campground rules are still the same as before and that parking next to your tent is not against the rules at all. Like cableguy said above, the campground is only worried about the atv and bikes.

    well i'm in for whereever we go. my truck will most likely be my tent. or maybe.... i'll sleep on the ground for once in my life. i think my dad bought like five 2 or 4 man tents at walmart when he caught em on clearance. maybe i can put em together and make a tent mansion.
