“Nice enough”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Nothing really special about this campground. Pull out RV sites do get shade in the afternoon, which is nice in the summer heat. Toilets were very clean. We were able to get a bar or two of ATT with our booster. Our rate is with the senior discount.

“Dry camping close to Wind Caves National Park”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for one night while passing through the Black Hills region of South Dakota. This is a pretty bare-bones camping experience with no hook-ups available at any of the sites. There are bathrooms and freshwater tap in the campground and trash bins at the entrance. The campground itself is essentially just a long cul-de-sa... more

“Convenient to Wind Cave and a decent campground.”

Reviewed Oct 05, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here for one night while checking out the Crazy Horse Monument and Wind Cave National Park. The campground is clean and has some nice sites. Because we arrived late we had the less level sites that lined the road, so not the best set-up. It looked like all of the sites are pull through, as they are just turn-offs from the ... more

“Nice campground in the National Park with great hosts. Close to Mt Rushmore ”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a well kept, very nice small campground. The host and Rangers were very helpful and pleasant. Sites are on the small side and most are very uneven. We tried for 45 minutes to level in one site but finally gave up and moved to a different site. We're in a 30' airstream. If you have a large rig, would recommend one of the fir... more

“Nice BD sites in the pines of the the Wind Cave area”

Reviewed Mar 07, 2016

Overall Rating

If you want a really quite place to camp Elk Mountain is the spot. Multiple loops. Only saw the lower loop which is open all year. Downside would be ZERO Verizon service even with a booster. And with the pine trees and layout of the CG doubtful for any satellite service.

After leaving Longmont, we high-tailed it straight through south-eastern Wyoming and into South Dakota where we were hoping to find a free, scenic spot to park in the Black Hills National Forest. H...
