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.

We visited Rushmore Shadows using the Tents for Troops program for active military. My brother-in-law and been away from his son for a year on military duty.

Rushmore Shadows Resort is a great place to stay in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It's in the heart of the best of everything that I like to visit!

Great hotel, close to town, nice venues, and shopping, close to convention center, ease of travel to the mountains and the monuments and lovely place for a family and their children to stay for a short vacations weekend.

We stayed at the Rushmore Shadows Resort over the Labor Day weekend and had a fantastic time. The Campground seemed full, but because of the large area it occupied, it never felt crowded. Our checkin was quick and the staff was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable about the campground to give us the perfect site. We had a 30-foot travel... More

We went camping here it was in a perfect location, close to everything you would like to do in the black hills. just up from reptile gardens and bear country. The sites are long enough even if you have a very long rig like ours. The only negatives are no cable and very poor internet otherwise I would give it... More

Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. Good location for many attractions, but comes with a cost. There are many campgrounds to choose from in the area, and after staying here, we would probably pick another park. Very large park, which includes cabins and tent areas. Campground has large pet play area, mini golf course, and holds events for its... More

The camp ground was beautiful and well kept. It had a very nice swimming pool. Green belts for the kids to run and have fun. Picnic tables which was a big help. It was only a few minutes from all the kids play grounds. I would recommend this camp ground to anyone and we certainly would go back.
