Family vacation with our 3 and 5 year olds. We stayed in a two queen bed cabin. It was a little smaller than I had imagined but larger than most hotels and the separate rooms were a plus. There was also a small playground for the kids which was an added bonus. Also most nights and mornings we would see... More

Always welcoming and the staff are very friendly. Great central place for great restaurants and Mount Rushmore. Danni never forgets your name and welcomes her guests. The cleaning ladies even put flowers In our room. We have already booked for next year.

My husband and I have never had a more comfortable, nor a more pleasurable time than we did at the rally the last 7 years we have attended this event. The staff, including Dani, Lynette, Sheron, and Sid, made our stay even more comfortable than we had expected. We have stayed in Keystone for several years in the past, but... More

We stayed here last night. It was very nice. They have cabin and RV availability. Our cabin was a 2 bedroom. There were 4 of us. The 2 rooms shared the bathroom but each room had their own sink. One room had a kitchenette and the other had a place others could sit to watch TV. There was a deck... More

Holy Smoke resort and RV park is a few miles away from Keystone SD. We stayed in the RV park a week before the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and 2 days during the rally. This is a very nice well maintained resort. The RV park had water sewer and electrical hook ups. The cabin our friends rented was beautiful and new.... More

Went during Sturgis bike week. LOVED the property and it's proximity to Keystone which was only a mile away. Right next to a great restaurant/delicious food. Owner is nice as can be and easy to book with. Cabin was cleaned daily. Roomy and well built. Air conditioned. Nice surroundings with hills lined with other cabins. Only two things missing: a...

Hello Lisa, Glad you really liked it here--Thank you for the wonderful review. I need to address the two things you did mention in the review: There was a time when we provided a large community gas grill for our guests use, I paid my employees to clean it and supplied the propane. It was mistreated, gas left on etc.... More

We have stayed here 4 times for the Sturgis Bike Rally. Each time in a different cabin. We have never been disappointed with any of our stays. Cabins have always been clean and comfortable. The staff has always been courteous and helpful when needed. Dani has always been a pleasure to talk too. Holy Smoke Resort is our home away... More

We got a cabin with a loft. The area and atmosphere is very relaxing! Very helpful staff and clean rooms. Great deck to enjoy! The only downfall is the stairs to the lofts are VERY steep! Upstairs they do have a gate at the top so you could latch it and not worry as much about kids falling down it.... More

We arrived 7/25 evening the small office was still open. We knew out pad location as to where we were parking our RV for the next few days. First thing I noticed was no store in the office. Not even a hand out for the Holy smokes horse rides. Which if you look at the web sites for both places... More

My thought is you should have paid the price and gone to a KOA or a campground instead of an RV park. This park has never allowed open fires and the park has never advertised a store etc. Next time pay the $100/night and have everything you want on the property. Ran out of trail ride brochures and Wranglers did... More

WE really enjoyed our stay here! A nice little tucked away place right off the highway! You can hear the traffic from above if you are outside or have your windows open. For us it is nothing major. It is a well kept little place. We had an RV and would stay here again! There are no facilities and that... More

Thanks for the great review. We are very happy you liked the RV Park. The grounds crew tries very hard to keep it looking great. We had a month of non-stop rain. Wettest June on record, so maintaining the grounds has been a challenge for them and it is certainly appreciated when they get a high five. Dani More
