The owners are great to work for. The treat their guests like royalty. This was the best stay of our trip. I would recommend and use again without any hesitation. The rooms are exactly as advertised, and can I just say that their beds are so comfortable. Myself and my family slept like babies. Thank you for the excellent place... More

We spent two nights at Whispering Winds last week and had a wonderful time. It was clean and well-maintained and our kids had a blast. Our 7 year old son even said he wished he could move there after making friends with the owners' son. We enjoyed the community campfire and smores as well as the easy access to Mt.... More

First impression, the cottage was immaculately clean and the décor was charming. The views from the property were beautiful. My kids loved all of the space to run around and explore. The nightly fires with S'mores were a huge hit! The location is perfect - you are close to both Keystone and Hill City. A quick drive will get you... More

Great location. Super clean. Owners are very helpful. Highly recommend staying there. If I'm ever back this way will definitely stay there. They have camp sites, showers for campers, nice play area, campfire areas.

Our family stayed here over Memorial Weekend 2015 in our camper. Chuck and Anjar were so very accommodating. The friendliest people we've met in a long time. Not only were they helpful with any questions, they also gave us a tour of the newly remodeled cottages. It was not too expensive either for having full water and sewer hookups. We... More

The proprietor, Chuck, was an excellent host! Very clean and comfortable cottages. We were unable to attend camp due to the weather, so we upgraded to a cottage. I can imagine there would've been a bit of road noise for camping, but the cottages were very well appointed and comfortable. Chuck was an excellent host and went above and beyond... More

My husband and I took our 3 children, ages 9, 7 and 4 on a little vacation to the Black Hills. We wanted a hassle free weekend and that is exactly what we got. Chuck and Anjar were great hosts and very accommodating to our family. You can tell they love what they do and take pride in their campground.... More

We recently stayed at Whispering Winds and had a wonderful time. The new owners, Chuck & Anjar are very accommodating and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Family Cottage and it was roomy, comfortable and well kept. After arriving it became immediately clear that they take the utmost care in keeping the cottages and grounds clean...

Had a wonderful experience staying here. We try to change it up when we go up every fall from Omaha, NE but this place is a keeper. Marla and Jim were perfect hosts and the cottage was so clean, well stocked, and beautifully decorated. The grounds are well kept. Bonfire every nite and grills to use if you want. Will... More
