Overall Rating

With some upkeep, this campground could be a 4 star accommodation. But it is really rundown. However, in Gillette, there are only two campgrounds in town. So you have to decide which one you would rather put up with. It is right across from the CamPlex Event Center where some big RV rallys are held.

There is easy access to this campground. The roads are gravel. Sites are back in and pull-thru, with some tent sites. Sites are tightly spaced, but not too tight. A lot of the residents are full time, which leads to some really junky looking sites. All of the pull through sites are supposed to be 50 amps...except (of course) for the one we picked at the end of the row. It was only 30 amps. We decided to stick it out.

I would advise having a power conditioner before plugging in, just in case. In most cases you have to share a water hydrant with your neighbor (they have Y connections)..and a lot of the permanent residents have decided to claim both sides of the Y. You may have to disconnect someone else's hose to get water. That was another reason we stuck with the 30 amp spot we had pulled into..Site 43 didn't have to share water. The owner claims the water pressure at the hydrants is sufficient to handle two rigs.

Each site has a rickety, paint peeling, picnic table. The playground is run down. The laundry room was the cleanest room in the place. Wash and Dry were both $1. But I had one washer eat my $1. I thought a second one was broke also, until I realized someone had unplugged it. Bathrooms were "ugh." The office is empty except for the check-in counter some abandoned furniture.

The owner is very pleasant. But I would call before you arrive. She had to drive over from her other job to check us in.

There is WiFi, but we had to put up our external WiFi antenna to pick it up at the end of the row. Download speed was 1 Mbps. We used our Jetpack instead. Verizon 4G was good. We were able to get a good number of OTA TV channels.

This campground is a place to spend the night and keep on moving. There is nothing attractive about it. Broken air fill station, broken mailboxes, etc. This was probably once a nice looking place. Not anymore

FYI...we stopped here to have a new toilet installed in our RV. We highly recommend Marten's RV Service. Larry and his mobile service were great.
