“Excellent campground near Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park”

Reviewed Jun 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We booked the last available site that they had for us and really lucked out. Other campgrounds were considerably higher for far less amenities. Our site had 50 amp full hookups with cable (cable was not that great but we don't watch much TV anyway). We were on a sideward slope so we had to do a bit of shuffling to get level, but we've dealt with way worse and I didn't have to break out the leveling blocks.

They have their own water wells so you don't get water that tastes like it came from a swimming pool, which was great. Some of the sites are a bit close but they try to arrange everyone by RV size so you aren't putting too big of a rig into too small of a site. Ours had plenty of room for our RV and Jeep.

The on site laundry was extremely nice and was open 24 hours. Machines were in great shape and were very clean.

There is a camp store with a good selection of staples and some odd-and-ends.

The pools (one for swimming and one for the slide) were good but shallow. At the deepest, the big pool is only about 4 feet deep. The one for the slide is 3 or 4 feet deep as well. You can only use the slide if something like 5 people are interested enough for them to unlock it and it costs an extra $5 for using it. I thought that was kind of weird... especially the fee to use the slide. We didn't use it.

Wifi was excellent when it worked. I routinely got 20 to 30 megs down and 10 to 15 up. They were having trouble with their provider and, in their defense, were working hard to get it fixed. I saw the service truck there more than once.

Cell reception was decent with AT&T give 3 bars of LTE and 10 to 15 down, unboosted.

“Great Spot in the Black Hills”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2017

Overall Rating

Beautiful, well kept grounds, sites are mostly level where we stayed (by the office) and we had great WiFi as well...but no streaming video, appears to be blocked. They do have free cable TV, so plan accordingly.

Friendly and helpful staff, that assisted with backing us in. Laundry was great; one of the machines was out of order but was fixed by the next day. We saw several examples of the staff hopping right on to repairs, which probably explains why it is so well maintained.

Bathrooms, showers and laundry were very clean. Only aluminum recycling.

At the site we had (back in) the utilities were near the front so we had to use 30 ft of sewer hose. I carry a 50 ft fresh water hose, so no problem there.

The rental car is a great convenience, it is a 2009 Dodge Caravan in pretty good shape. Other than being a bit bigger than our regular cars, it performed well going through Custer State Park, up the Iron Mountain Road to Mt. Rushmore, down to Hot Springs, etc. An annual pass to Mt. Rushmore and Custer SP is included and saves you $11 at Rushmore and $20 at Custer.

They have a 10% discount for Good Sam members, seniors 65 & over, FMCA members, or persons with an active or retired Military ID.

All in all, there might be better campgrounds in this area, but we will definitely make this one our first choice whenever we come back to the Black Hills.
