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

We loved this campground. It was shady, with lots to do for families. There is a nice pool. There was a place for kids to do "gem panning" - they have water running in a sluice like area. You buy a bag of dirt/sand and the kids wash it with the trays with screens. The bag is filled with "gems"... More

We LOVED Horse Thief Campground! We are a family of 5 who traveled west for our vacation and used the trip advisor to help us select the campground. We were not disappointed! So many of the campgrounds in the area were set right on the main highway- Horse Thief was nestled in the woods but so easy to find! It... More

Cozy cabins with nice amenities. They had an air conditioner and a mini fridge in the cabin. How cool is that? Nice people, clean bath house, close by the city but still out of town. Don't forget to feed "Little Bit" aka Hobart.

We love to camp and this by far is my favorite place to stay. The area was beautiful. The spots are spacious and well kept. The bathrooms and showers were impeccably clean. The staff were all very helpful and nice. I was very impressed.

We had a lovely stay at the Horse Thief campground when we went to visit Mt. Rushmore and it was everything we needed. Clean campsite, helpful staff, clean bathrooms and even a pool. The proximity to both the national monument and also to Custer, SD made it a great location, too!

We can be campground snobs so I was worried to book this online. As we drove through Hill City, I kept seeing these fields oftents ando RVs with no shade (and great reviews!!). I just knew it would be bad. We got further into black hills and came to Horse Thief. It was in the middle of nature- shaded beautiful...... More

We recently stayed at this campground for a week and loved it! The campground is secluded in a wooded area and the campsites were very nice. Our trailer was covered by pine trees so it kept them shaded for the most part. The family that owns it were so nice and helpful. There was a heated swimming pool the kids... More

This was one of our best camping trips of all time! The camp sites are great, all have grass and trees. Plenty of space between sites. Owners are super nice! Everything was reasonably priced. We definitely recommend this campground and will go back again.
