We stayed for 4 days and loved this campround. It is a lovely forest setting with nice warm pool and facilities. Close to monuments and custer state park . The owners are warm and the most helpful park managers we have encountered. We are traveling cross country and have seen many! We had some engine problems and they were very... More

We stayed here during the rally and couldn't be more pleased. The campsite included breathtaking scenery of rock outcroppings and an occasional deer. This campground is tucked away off the road which provides a peaceful environment. Will definitely stay here again!!

We had an amazing time staying here during Sturgis Rally. The campsite that we were assigned was #10, which we found perfect since it was level, clean, with beautiful trees and quiet surroundings. Upon reading the other review of the same site, was a bit shocked since we couldn't come up with one single complaint about our stay at this... More

We had a GREAT experience at Horse Thief. At first we were disappointed that there were no sites open at Custer State Park, but we are SO happy with our experience that when we visit the Hills again we won't even bother with Custer. We're going to stay at Horse Thief again. The family that runs the campground is friendly,... More

We booked three nights at this campground but only stayed two. It looks like it's a nice place to camp, but our site was a funnel for all the traffic going in and out, was next to the trash bins, had no shade, was way too close to our neighbors and was washed out the two nights we stayed during...

I totally agree with all the other excellent reviews. This campground is located a couple of miles off the highway away from the noisy traffic. A place to relax in the pool or listen to the birds and maybe see a deer in the field near your site. From the moment we drove up to register, my wife and I... More

Camped for 6 nights in mid June and loved it! Clean showers, great location and wonderful people. The owners were so nice and helpful! We had no problems getting our motorcycles in and around the campground. Can't wait to go back!

We loved our 4 night stay at the Horse Thief Campground in the Black Hills! We were there shortly after Memorial Day this year and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and convenience of travel to local attractions (Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Rapid City, etc). Easy to travel to, yet VERY QUIET and woodsy feel! Our kids loved the (very... More
