General Information

General Notes:

There is only one small developed recreation area on the Buffalo Gap National Grassland.  The National Grassland Visitor Center is located in Wall, South Dakota.  This site provides the history behind the system of the National Grasslands located across the West.

While there is only one developed campground, there are plenty of open spaces to camp.  Bring your horse, your bicycle or your OHV and spend some quiet time in the wide open spaces of the Grassland.
