The staff is friendly and helpful. We arrived a day early, called 30 min before arrival and given a spot..in fact they gave us a tour on a golf cart and a choice of several spots.Service was also good. For example, when the cable didn work college kid staff efficiently diagnosed the problem and they cleaned out our fire pit... More

At no time was it mentioned that would be shared by a facing RV. Spaces are very tight with no room for patio awning. Some... More

Stayed in one of the cabins last week after our Badlands campsite was flooded after a big storm. Couldn't find a room between there and Rapid City until we found this one. Spoke with hotel managers on the phone who were very patient with us out-of-towners and gave us good directions. Cabin was cute. They are bunks that sleep 8,... More

Older campground but well taken care of and the staff are wonderful. Great place to stay and would stay there again. Lots of stuff to do in the area. Would like to see the campground updated, but it was OK.

We arrived at the motel just after the area was hit by a devastating blizzard. But what we got was a treat - a clean, substantial room for a good price. The owners were friendly and generous to everyone, taking care of those who had been stuck for days by the blizzard and helping those in the RV park as... More

We decided to try a cabin as it was cheaper than the hotels in the area. We paid about $50.00 a night in July 2013. The cabin had two rooms, so our children slept in one and my husband and I had the other. It was nice to have a little distance as we were on the road for 30+... More

Indifferent camp hosts, who appear to run this park, made excuses for bad roads, dirty bathrooms, rust on linoleum floor and acted indifferent to our plight. We were visiting our grandson at Ellsworth AFB, so when escorted to a muddy site, we asked for another. The escort took off, and leaving us with he problem. Rather than spoiling the day... More
