Beautiful area. Camping spaces are tight and small compared to what we are accustomed to in our area. Service and amenities are nice. Our kids had a blast. Great location to all the area attractions (Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State park, etc...)

We stayed in this campground for 4 nights near the end of October. They were the only place still opened! But we couldn't have been happier. They had cable tv, free wifi, a pool a store, laundry area, BBQ, and showers. Because we were there during weather that could freeze, the showers, pool, and laundry room on the lower level... More

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. We did not use the cabins so am not rating this RV park for that. We stayed in our 5th wheel RV. Roads are nice and wide and the service is excellent. When we arrived the owner's son gave us a ride in his cart down to see our site before... More

Friendly, clean nice size sites. Do not have one negative thing to say about this campground. We had to check out late due to a pet emergency and there were so nice to extend the check out time. Would definitely stay there next time.

A nice campground that is operated by nice people. More amenities than some, with cable TV, a pool, store and chuck wagon dinner. Not really a RV resort but close to it. Some campsites are a bit closer to each other than I prefer, but this is a good place to stay.

We stayed at Beaver Lake Campground for four nights. We enjoyed the serenity of our RV spot at the back of the campground. Also, this is a very convenient location to explore the Black Hills area of South Dakota!

Max and Cindy who own this place are very nice. Tess who runs the front desk is a doll. unfortunately the cabins we stayed in not so great. We first stayed in cabin 3, which was clean but it had no fridge, which we did not know, it had an old fashion tv so we assumed wrongly that it would... More

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.
