“We didn't camp in the same area that other reviewers did and weren't thrilled with the spot we were at, but it was fine for an overnight”

The GPS coordinates listed here take you to a small parking lot with a toilet, dumpster, and an information sign about the Belle Fourche Dam. Instead of continuing up the main road, we took a dirt road directly across the street for about half a mile and then pulled off on the side - there are multiple mown-down grass areas there where... more

“Super easy to find and set up.”

Reviewed Aug 23, 2017

Overall Rating

Couldn't be much easier to find and set up so good for even just a night or two. Avoid camping near the main road because it gets very dusty and there's enough traffic to make it bothersome. Not a lot of people here even during our summer weekend and it's real quite at night. Bugs were not bad. Dump and potable water at the fee campgro... more

“Peaceful”

Reviewed Aug 20, 2017

Overall Rating

I spent two weeks here, and enjoyed it very much. Easy access good cell service with Verizon, and deserted for the most part probably due to the lake water level being so low. There was a pit toilet and dumpster within a mile of my spot, and I had no trouble getting level with my 29' MH. The gravel roads are fine except for a few sec... more

“quiet, beautiful views, easy access and no bugs, despite being so near the reservoir!”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2017

Overall Rating

We followed the directions from a previous reviewer, which were helpful. Once you turn left at the ranger station, the dirt roads are not marked, but it's fairly easy to find your way. Spots are plentiful, and far apart. We were tent camping, and driving a civic, and this was the easiest dirt road we came across yet!

“Remote and Super Quiet -- Great For Weather Watching”

We're enjoying our stay here but our GPS tried to get us lost! We ended up turning the wrong way on Hwy 212 and drove to the Wyoming border and back looking for our destination . . . it's not out there! If you head north from the town of Belle Fourche on the I90 business loop (aka US 85), you want to turn RIGHT (head East) on Hwy 212 (... more

The south and east side, especially the east side shown in my photos are wide open, any size rig. 14 days are free. Prairie grass and many fire pits scattered throughout the area.
