OK, so we do initially have our own ignorance to blame, we arrived in the Black Hills area, for the first time mind you, without a plan--at all. Being blindly ignorant of the method of South Dakota's camping rules, this was not a graceful effort on our part. After flirting with darkness and not having a site to -tent- camp... More

Picking an RV park is always a bit of a crap-shoot. They all look and sound good online. We arrived @ Fort Welikit and my first impression was 'what a dust bowl.' To call the roads gravel would be a very generous description. They are badly rutted dirt and very narrow. A good first step in improving this park would... More

Bill, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us and that you had issues backing your rig into a site. We do our very best to match a rig with the site but when reservations are made late in the busy summer season the prime sites, such as pull-troughs and/or wide sites are often taken... More

Stayed here over 4th of July weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a great campground with all the amenities. Our site was a bit tight but comfortable. It was configured in a terraced fashion and gave us a feeling of privacy although we could see our neighbors. Can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the management was!!... More

We were glad to find a great park that is in the trees as advertised. All the perks you could ask for, 50 amps, Sewer and Cable T.V. and yet we still felt like we were camping and not just parked in a big lot. No cookie cutter sites in this park, each was unique and separated from the next... More

This campground is the best campground I have ever seen. Staff was very nice and the location is very pretty. The electric tent site was very well maintained. Bathrooms are great with a shower and real toilet and sink. Multiple water sites made it easy to refill water containers.

This is a very nice RV park nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota just outside of Custer. This became home base for us as we explored Mt. Rushmore and the surrounding area. Large RV's can be accommodated easily here. Staff are friendly and are willing to assist in any way they can. The RV park has a small... More

We recently stayed here one night to test out our pop-up before we took it on a trip to Colorado. That was a great choice on our part. The campground is quiet and heavily wooded. Because it is off a road that doesn't have much traffic it is pretty quiet. The restrooms are family-style with toilet, sink & shower in... More

We stayed here with our family in June. I was a little concerned when we pulled in but was pleasantly surprised. This campground was really cute. The shower house and laundry rooms where very clean. Actually some of the cleanest I've seen. The prices were some of the best. I wish it wasn't such a drive to the major attractions... More

Anyone can take a parking lot and turn it into a campground... This campground, however, has character and scenery. Beautiful tall pines all throughout, wildlife ( we had a doe that visited us every morning!) , no major road noise! All makes for a wonderfully relaxing experience. Great location to Custer State Park, just a couple of miles to Crazy... More

We stayed here recently with our family for four nights and had a wonderful time. We met the owner who went out his way to help us with firewood. The manager was friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful, quiet and shaded. We had deer in the camp early in the morning. The bathrooms are excellent and clean also. I... More
