“Creekside camping inside awesome Custer State Park”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Grace Coolidge is small and intimate with only about 20 sites suitable for RVs (there's a small tent camping area across 16A), nestled in the heart of an amazing state park. The absolute best sites are the ones by the creek and of these 6, 10, and 12 are the best for larger rigs, though we barely fit. Sites in the middle are nicely shaded and still get good creek sound, while the sites facing 16A are the largest and are in the sun with stunning views of granite cliffs. Road noise is minimal to nonexistent at night. All sites are paved and reasonably level. While the interior sites don't have the same level of privacy as those on the outside of the loop, there is still decent site separation. Plus, the campground is tiny. The bathhouse was immaculately clean with plenty of toilets and showers, and offered nice long hot showers. The Grace Coolidge Walk-in Fishing Area and trail is directly across 16A from the campground, and the paved Creekside Trail travels from the campground past the park office and Coolidge General Store to the State Game Lodge. The central location is great. The only ding for us was a complete absence of cell service on AT&T, but in an emergency service can be reached by just going a few miles up 16A toward the Game Lodge.

“Lovely Campground”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We got a site on short notice. It was close to the road, but backed to a pond area which was lovely to enjoy. Road noise wasn’t bad, and would be fully deminished if staying further into the campground closer to the creek. Showers were clean and flush toilets were in the campground. Good cell service. Spots were wide and accessible.
