“Snowy but fun”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 5 nights starting 5/19/2019 Thought the snow was done. First night 12 inches plus about 6 the next day. Unexpected at that time of year. Park and surrounding area without power 24 hours. Our site was level and paved with 30 Amp service. Not much privacy between sites. Campground had 2 bathhouses and several vault ... more

“Can’t Wait to Go Back!”

Reviewed Jun 03, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved staying at Game Lodge! We wish we booked for longer than 2 nights, we can’t wait to go back. Campsites are asphalt pads and are nicely spaced. Each site has electricity. There are water spigots near the bathrooms if you need Potable Water. There is also a dump station in the campground. Bathrooms are clean and have showers. Th... more

“Buffalo Right Next Door!”

Reviewed May 20, 2019

Overall Rating

Custer State Park is one of our most favorite parks...you will see wildlife, and its often right out your back door. We stayed in the Game Lodge campground, which is right next to the entrance of the Wildlife Loop and your ticket to seeing herds of buffalo, often right next to the road. This is an excellent campground. We stayed i... more

Nice level paved sites but there are plenty of trees and grass so you don’t feel like you’re in a campground. Small creek allows for quite time

We stayed here a total of two nights. The site had a concrete parking pad, spacious sites, fire pit, electrical hookups, playground in the park and a dump station nearby There is a bathroom and showers onsite, but we did not use them so I am unsure on quality. Only about five minutes away from the start of the wildlife loop and few mi... more

“So great we had to come back ”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at Game Lodge in April on our way to the PNW and loved it so much we came back on our way back through. Our experience is probably a tad different than most peoples since both times it was cold and snowed. The payoff for enduring the weather though is the campground to yourself! There are 20,30 and 50 amp hook ups at the si... more

Clean electric only sites, laundry room, clean bathrooms and free hot showers with access and electricity 24 hrs a day.

“Great centrally located spot for exploring the Black Hills”

Reviewed Jan 27, 2018

Overall Rating

We got a very nice spot on the higher side of the campground with some shade. The facilities were very clean. It's a relatively easy walk to the State Game Lodge, which was a beautiful building with a nice large patio and bar. There are nice pull though pads for almost all the sites. What it lacks in character it makes up for in co... more

Site with electricity, water and dump station available at the campground. Restrooms and showers very clean. Leveled sites, perfect for RV. Some sites are in shaded areas (not ours). 8$ less for South Dakota residents.

This quickly became one of our favorite campgrounds! Beautiful lush grassy campsites with plenty of trees for hammock hanging.
