The campground is right next to a major highway - the noise was non-stop and quite loud with a abundance of trucks at all hours. The camp itself is also very crowded and noisy. Unless you medicate, you will not rest in this place. Service is pretty much non-existent once you check in. Really a lousy experience - don't let... More

We would like to thank you for your review. We don't consider a two lane highway as major a highway but to each his own. We are sorry that the popularity of our campground did not meet your expectations. As far as this so called dump you refer to and the modicum (a small amount) of privacy goes maybe you... More

When we first checked into our room it was late at night. Upon lugging all the suitcases for my family of six up the full flight of steps and entering the room -- I could instantly smell urine. I was mortified but again it was very late and I didn't have the heart to ask my husband to lug the... More

This review is false leading and contains slanderous acquisations against the Resort and the owners. This person never talked with the owner who does run our front desk 7 days a week. Trip advisor should not have published this with out contacting the owners. People that right these types of reviews are either unhappy in general. We have been in... More

We stayed in this RV park for 3 days. It was a little crowded but we did so much sightseeing and traveling it didn't bother us. I looked for a place close to everything we wanted to see IE: Mt Rushmore, Black Hills, Crazy Horse, Custer St Park, also close enough to Hill City to take advantage of some great... More

I traveled to South Dakota for the first time with my 3 young children, my husband, and my parents and we were very happy with our stay at Crooked Creek Resort this past week. We rented their largest cabin for 3 nights at a very affordable price. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful anytime we had questions or needed... More

When I booked our cabin, it said on the website that all cabins are air-conditioned. We were given the only cabin without AC and only one window. The cabin had a dog odor and luckily we had some air freshener with us, it helped, but every time the cabin was closed up the odor returned. When I complained about no... More

We stayed at this park in late September, 2014 with another couple in two motorhomes. It was a very nice park but was extremely crowded. Motorhomes and trailers barely have room to manuver. They serve breakfast in a little rustic cabin on weekends. There is a small creek that meanders behind the park with a fee bike trail.

Thank you for the review. Sites are a little tight but not as tight as AZ, NM or Florida parks. We have a 38' MH and travel our selves. We give a spacious 15' between each site. When the park was built 55 years ago I guess the owner at that time did not even imagine how big our traveling... More

We enjoyed our three night stay. Nice clean grounds, bathrooms and showers. The staff was very nice and helpful. Close to Hill City and all the area attractions. We would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Not often I rent a lot with "free wifi" at any campground and can't even access my hometown newspaper to catch up on the local news. I asked, what`s the deal with blocked news sites and the poor girl at the counter just acted dumb with no answer. CNN was blocked on the cable but good old Fox was there.... More

Thank you for the review. And by the way the owners do NOT like censorship. It is was it is here in the Black Hills. If you have a better solution to wi-fi and the cable situation then have at it. If your whole live revolves around wi-fi and cable then the Black Hills is not the place for you. More

This was the last place we stayed on our 2 week rv trip out west...by far our favorite spot. Spacious lots...clean and well maintained facilities. Fire rings built in ground and come with lids. Heated pool and friendly staff willing to chat. Great rates! Excellent location to all the tourist spots. highly Recommended.
