Rushmore Shadows is a great campground. It is located about 12 miles outside of rapid City on Rt 16, on the way to Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monument. The campground is very clean and nicely laid out. The large sites are fully equipped, level, and easily accessed. The facility has free Wi-Fi, and all of the normal camp... More

Came out for our first stay and 8 days wasn't enough!!! The facility was beautiful and very well kept, VERY!! The maintenance/security staff are always around when you need them, even if just to give your little one a quick lift to the park (even though I made my kids walk). We rented a six person cabin which the specific... More

We stayed at Rushmore Shadows for Sturgis 2 years ago and loved it, so we came back this year! This time we stayed 9 days. The grounds are beautiful and very well manicured, the store is well stocked and the staff really takes great care of facilities and they are very friendly. They added a nice dog park and more...

Stayed here with a small group during the 2015 Sturgis Rally. Check-in was a bit of a hassle despite our pre-paid reservation. Woman at front desk appeared confused and was slow to check us in. We rented log cabin number 1 for two nights and the Deer Park Model for another night. Complaints first: The log cabin was quaint, but... More

We stayed here because we have a connection to management of this resort, and spent less than 24 hours on the property, but are talking about making arrangements for a longer stay next time. We have lower-elementary age children and this was the perfect place to let them explore and have some freedom. We stayed in a newer cabin that... More

I don't know if it was the desire to protect Mt. Rushmore but I have never seen so many old staff on edge. I was parked with my son next to the office to have a better WiFi reception when, old timer got "suspicious". When I try to explain that their tenting area is so low and slanted that we... More

We stayed here last year towards the end of the season in September. I thought the facilities were excellent and good showers. The wifi was a bit hit and miss. We were in an RV and all the hook ups worked fine. What I liked about the campground was its location. We did trips to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer... More

This place is really great. It is clean, well maintained and very cool. We stayed here in the RV section while we visited Mr Rushmore. It is quite even though it is on the main highway. It is kid friendly and there is lots to do. I highly recommend it.
