I'm not sure what the think of this campground. Staff were pleasant. When we arrived at our spot, (tent camping); the ground was saturated. You have to park in the grass. No gravel at all (if you tent camp).The campsite beside of us was closed due to standing water. The owner immediately accommodated us by letting us move to another campsite. But it was farther from bathrooms and it was still wet. Not as bad though. He told us that this was the first day in a long time that they had a day of no rain. Later that day, a fellow camper told me that it hadnt rained all week. Anyway we stayed 4 nights (very little rain) and the ground was always soft and squishy when you walked on it. The ground wasn't level though. The road to get to campsite was bad in places too. Deep sinkholes Not sure why they dont have gravel for parking. Bathrooms were nice. Hot showers. Sink to do dishes in was very nice and "laundromat" was nice. Never used the pool.

We came in 5 minutes before close to check in to a tent site during a giant storm. The host informed us that our tent site would be soaked, and allowed us to easily switch to a cabin, which made our trip.

We had a great experience staying here! We came in 5 min before they closed during a really bad storm. They let us switch from a campsite to a cabin so that we didn't get soaked setting up our tent. It was cozy and dry. The staff was great, and the campground offers a gorgeous view and nice bathroom/shower facilities. It's also very close to everything the Black Hills has to offer. We will definitely be staying here again!

We drove into the campground just minutes before the office closed in a torrential downpour. We were NOT looking forward to setting up a tent and enduring a night of severe storms. The owner took pity on us and handed us the keys to a small cabin! It was clean and comfy and just what we needed. Highly recommend!

I had a great three day stay in late June '19. Spots were not uniform but quite cozy and unique. Clean showers. I would have rated this only four stars due to sites which were not level (easy fix) but the management team was so pleasant after a massive 3-4 inch downpour which washed out their gravel road. The entire crew showed up and put massive effort into making the site back to normal. Throughout the repair, the crew were pleasant despite losing several thousands of dollars of gravel down the valley.
