A nice little park with a great view of Bear Butte and the Black Hills in the distance. Not too far out of Sturgis for when you need to stock up on supplies. The pictures from previous posters do the park justice, nicely spaced sites (not huge but certainly adequate) and most sites are big enough for bigger rigs. The roads getting here are good. There is a water spigot for drinking water but no dump station or electric unless you're lucky enough to score the campground host site. Vault toilets. There are platforms for fishing, right from the campground and probably two others on road coming in. The oddest thing is the price, currently $11.67, a price that reflects tax which I rarely encounter. It makes for awkward payment if you're paying with cash. The other strange thing, if I am interpreting the sign properly, is it appears you have to re-register each day so again, have lots of change ready if you plan on paying with cash. If you plan to hike Bear Butte, please be respectful, it is a sacred site to many. Plan your hike on a COOL day and take lots of water.

This is a nice little park. One of the few South Dakota parks that is nearly free $11.61 or iif the host isn't using the spot you can pay $15.83 for electric.

No services. I did see a water spigot and they do have vault toilets.

Road in is gravel but smooth. Very quiet though can be windy.

Verizon was solid 3-4bars. 15.50/14.29 mbps down/up without a booster. Got 17.52/12.42 mbps down/up with a WeBoost 4G.
