We spent two nights in one of the rustic cabins. We knew there was no AC so brought our own fan. Cabin was warm but definitely cooled off during the night. Cabin was what we expected. Cabin was clean but rustic. Shower areas could use a little updating. Cabins would benefit if screen doors were added to provide additional outside... More

We stayed three nights in the campground. It was a very nice place. The people in the office/store were very helpful. They accompanied us to the campground and helped pick out a great place for us and even helped us get started setting up. We had a covered picnic table that was nice. Would stay here again! wifi was spotty,... More

My family came from the east and west to gather together in Rapid City SD.There was a total of fourteen of us. We stayed in two of the camping cabins & two motel rooms for a total of 5 days. Cabins are rustic but have power and a TV with basic cable. They sleep four adults and four small children... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Happy Holiday Resort. We stayed in 2 of the cabins (when I reserved our stay, they could only accommodate our fairly late notice in 2 separate cabins, which was fine by us). The cabins are rustic, as I expected, but they do have electricity, 2 separate rooms and they'd sleep about... More

We only stayed one night but hope to stay longer next time. Picnic table under roof for each site, lots of full hookups, nice pool for the kids to let off steam. People were very nice. Close to attractions. Of course this means some road noise but that didn't bother us.

We stayed at Happy Holiday campground while others in our party stayed in some of the 12 cabins. Cabins: register at the motel, not the campground. Although both locations seem to share the same amenities--registration, etc. are separate. This is the first of the things that made me wonder but, i will get to that. The cabins have 2 queen...

We stayed in the hotel part for 4 nights. It's not fancy but the beds were comfortable and everything worked. The best part about this hotel was the people. Every one I talked to was super nice and very helpful. The kids loved the pool and playground area. We will definitely stay here again!

We (self, wife, dog) stayed here in travel trailer 3 nights in late April. Not crowded so plenty if space albeit the sites are not long enough for truck and trailer nor mist units I would imagine. Owners are very accommodating tho and allowed us to park truck on adjoining site. They were still in winter mode so limited facilities... More

My family and I are still currently staying at the park. We have met some wonderful people and made new friends since staying here. It's also kid friendly and pet friendly. I would stay here anytime. The manager and staff are awesome.
