We are not campers or RV'ers, but decided to try it for a family vacation. Point being, I have nothing to compare this to. I will say, though, that the bathroom facilities surpassed my expectations. They were nice and clean. The sites were fine, and it was very quiet. Management was friendly and Max was extremely helpful. The location to... More

The bathrooms were clean and they had bunnies for the kids to feed but that is about the only good thing I have to say. The staff was rude. A staff member yelled at my son for asking if the slide was open. The campground was very run down and in need of a lot of work. They don't keep... More

A really great campground with an excellent staff!!! Sites are big, shady, grassy and fairly level. Central to all attractions in the Mt Rushmore/Crazy Horse area. Quiet and dark at night. Free cable and Wifi.

That was a wonderful camp ground stay. We even added a night. Lots of stuff do do in the area. Quiet all night long. Free and effective wifi. Kind staff. Welcoming owner. Clean--exceptionally clean--showers and bathrooms. Everything was top notch. And last but certainly not least, a kick but waterskide and pool. That water slide was a fun surprise. Excellent... More

The Internet and phone service. For some this might not be an issue but as a business owner who relies on phone service this was. You can go to the office or top of the hill and get reception. OTHERWISE, everything was outstanding. The staff, facilities, the bunnies hopping around. It was wonderful. We stayed in a 42ft motorhome with... More

We had a spot that backed to the lake for about 5 nights. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or waterslide due to the fact that we spent more time than anticipated just driving around taking in the sights. They were kind and dropped off a load of wood at our site even though we could have put... More

Clean and quiet with plenty of trees. We stayed for 3 days in July while visiting Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, Needles Hwy, etc. Wifi was non functional in our spot so when I had to get some work done I just plugged my laptop into the Ethernet cables next to the office and I was good to go. I... More

We stayed here in our motor home so we could be close to Mt. Rushmore. This is a great location close to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park. The RV sites are large with mature trees providing lots of shade. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. WiFi was marginal for me although my grandson seemed to have... More

We stayed at this campground 5 days, it would have been longer but when I called with questions, I was essentially cut short and toldthey were busy and if I wanted a site to reserve it on the web site and they would call me back. I requested the reservation on the site as requested and when I got a... More
