Our family of five which included three teenagers really enjoyed this campground. Great location which allowed us to see Mount Rushmore, Keystone, and Hill City. It is just off the Needles Highway which is a great drive in itself and provides great hiking. We stayed at a site that was at the end of the loop just down from the... More

Everybody was friendly. The tent site had lots of room. We were moved a bit up the hill by no fault of the campground. My site was flooded due to heavy spring snow and lots of rain all summer. Very close to major attractions, so if you plan to go out and about during your stay, this is a great... More

We found this campground by accident and it's our new favorite campground here in the Hills. Tent sites are large with extremely well built pads. Appears to be plenty of space between tent sites so there's no feeling of being stacked on top of others. Clean hot showers. Friendly staff at checkin. And beautiful setting.

We loved our stay at this campground! The staff was super friendly from booking all the way through our visit. The bathrooms were clean (though a little cramped), the store well supplied, our cabin quite spacious. Nice laundry facility, close to Mount Rushmore and a cute little town. Our kids loved playing on the giant rocks. We had a great... More

We stayed there this past week. The check in was smooth and easy. We felt welcome right away. Campground is clean and just off the main roads. It was easy to get to all the attractions we wanted to see during our stay. The campground was very quiet at night and the hills surrounding it were beautiful. Highly recommend staying... More

We recently stayed at the Horse Thief Campground in the Black Hills. It is a clean campground located off the beaten path but easy to get to. It was a perfect location to visit every attraction and town in the area. It is beautiful and the staff is awesome. WIFI is sketchy all over the area, not just at the... More

We stayed for a week and had a great time! We booked over the phone and the owner made sure we knew what to pack to anticipate for the weather at the time we would be there and also made sure to send us a travel guide. The staff were friendly and very willing to help answer any questions we... More

We recently stayed at the Horse Thief Campground & Resort for 8 nights, it is located in a beautiful spot in the Black Hills not far from Hill City. There are many attractions a short drive away. The campground is clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The campground has a well stocked store and has a nice Little pool. Yes... More

Had a great time at this campground. Only stayed for two nights but if I go back- will definitely try to stay longer. We had a tent spot with no electricity, it was fairly secluded and had great views. We were on the side of a hill. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. It was so close to everything... More

We stayed for a week in our pop-up camper and would gladly come back for a return visit. There were many good things about the camp. The bathrooms were clean. They got used quite a bit, but they were cleaned daily from 12-1 pm. We really liked the location - near Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, & Crazy Horse. It... More
