“Clean, quite, good ammenities, in the pines campground”

Reviewed Jun 08, 2018

Overall Rating

A nice campground in the pine trees that is family run. Super friendly and helpful staff. They assist you with getting your rig into you site, as some of the are a little tight with the trees and all. The site are well space and ours (#18) had a slight uphill grade to it. Though our particular site backed the road, traffic was at a minimal and we slept sound with windows open. I think there are only two sites that actually back the road.

All the RV sites are full hook-ups (water, sewer & electric 30/50) most of the sites are close to level, but some leveling will be required. They have pull-through (saw a 77' rig + trailer in one) and back-in sites. The Wi-Fi is so-so. You can get connected, but the bandwidth is on the weak side. They do have free cable TV (70+ channels) (must turn off antenna booster to work), so plan accordingly. All sites have picnic tables.

Laundry was great, with two separate locations within the campground to do laundry ($2.00 a load to wash and .25 for eight minutes on the dryers). . We saw several examples of the staff hopping right on to repairs, which probably explains why it is so well maintained.

Bathrooms, shower rooms ((6 in our area of the park) and laundry were very clean and cleaned everyday from 1-3pm. Office hours are from 8am to 8pm. They sell ice and propane onsite, plus have some small sundries in the office. The will also sell you a coax cable for your TV if you did not bring one.

They also rent out teepee's (site 17 right next to us was one) and cabins. They also have a large (100 yards X 50 yards) children's play area with a large make-believe fort.

Campground is very convenient to Crazy Horse Memorial (8 miles), Mt. Rushmore (20+/- miles), Custer State Park (7 miles) Jewel Caves (15 miles & a must do) and the town of Custer 1 mile away. There is also a hospital 1/2 mile from the campground.

“ Convenient location ”

We stayed here May 7-10th 2015. We had only planned on staying for a couple of nights, but a huge snow storm came through, and we ended up staying for 4. We chose this campground becouse of its close proximity to Sylvan Lake, Custer State Park, and Jewel and Wind Cave. We arrived early in the camping season and were fortunate to have a large section of the campground all to ourselves.

The campground is wooded, and the sites are a good size, easily accessible for bigger rigs. While it was not crowded when we visited, I could see it lacking privacy if it became busy. One end of the campground backs up a main road, which did not bother us, but during a busier season it may be more noisy.

The campground owner was very kind and attentive to our needs during our stay. He made sure our area was plowed and that we were able get our rig out when we wanted to leave.

The download speed was 30 MBS, if you are like us and work from the road :)
