We had a difficult time finding a reservation for the Black Hills, but were pleasantly surprised at this perfect campground. The sites are spacious and well kept. Bathrooms are clean. We have 35 ft monochrome, and our site (29) was so level the our leveling jacks had almost no work! The only thing negative would be that there is no... More

Custer Gulch RV park is located in a small sloped valley, backing up to the National Forest, about 1/2 mile from the Custer State Park entrance. The sites have really generous spacing you rarely find in a private RV park. Lots of green grass around your site and aspen and pines behind you. Very pretty setting. Two slight negatives are...

Our fifth time back--we love the large and roomy sites, very quiet and exceptionally clean and well kept. Great staff. We will be back!! We always meet the nicest and most interesting people and can really relax and enjoy our downtime. A top-notch camp site.

Elaine, the owner, is extremely rude and combative. She has no customer service skills and I would not recommend this campground at all. We traveled in South Dakota and Wyoming and every place we stayed treated us great, until we got to this place. There are lots of other campgrounds in the area that are just as nice or better...

I called two weeks in advance to push my reservation back one day which was well within their policy of changes outside of five days. I was asked and specifically stated that we wouldn't be pushing the trip back a day, we would be shortening it by one day. I go in to pay this morning and there is a... More

We spent three nights here while touring the area. The location is great, campsites are all grass and spacious with your own fire pit. The property is well maintained. It is quiet!! Everyone was very friendly starting with check in. We would stay here again! We traveled in a motorhome towing a car. The site easily accommodated both. Two thumbs... More

Don't try to check in even half an hour early. And when you ask about check in times expect to be spoken to in a condesending manner. DAMN shame the campground is beautiful but the owner cares more about being right than good customer service

We will never come here again. The owner, I think her name is Elaine, is just rude and grumpy. They need to take a class on how to be courteous, polite and how to speak to their paying customers. We had a situation where we wanted to leave earlier. Since it was over a holiday weekend we figured it would... More

This is a very nice campground, pretty area. Too bad the folks in the office don't match the scenery. The first thing the woman at the desk said after she asked for our name (we had a reservation) was that we couldn't check in till 2 o'clock. It was noon. Well, she was pretty rude about it. Not the usual... More

We booked this campground for two nights on the fly - and we got lucky! What nice people who take really good care of this property. Not a lot of shade, but really roomy level sites. Extremely clean bath/shower. Great location for Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, and the Badlands.
