“Awesome Snowmobiling Vacation!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

My family members from several different states met at 'Recreational Springs Resort' over the Christmas holidays. We all had an outstanding time that we will never forget! We couldn't ask for a better location. The resort is right on the major snowmobile trails, allowing us to hop on and off for both day and night riding. The trails themselves were also outstanding, with many places to stop for food, drink, entertainment along with the way.

The staff at the resort were all great! All in all everyone (young and old alike) completely enjoyed our trip and hope to do it again.

Just ask Darcy and she can fix you up! Full hookups and 50 amp, some 30 amp. Nice and green and the entire staff (specially owners Terry and Faye) are great! Economical and close to Lead and Deadwood. They are working hard to prepare for the winter recreation season. We had a 40 ft motor home. The satellite worked great. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We will return and will keep in personal contact with the owners!

Room Tip: no pull-through sites but ample room and easy access.

This is a great place to stay. The first thing I noticed was how helpful and kind the staff was. Every person working there was courteous and willing to be of service. The lodge was comfortable, homey, and open late. Additionally, the lodge restaurant was SO good. The driveway was freshly paved, the grounds were clean and lawns manicured. As we were camping in tents, I was a little worried about using common showers and bathrooms, but I found them to be very clean and well cared for. Both the men's and women's room have clothes washing facilities that are reasonably priced. I also had a concern about having our tent so close to a portable toilet (our choice), which can be convenient or a smelly problem. To my great, and unexpected, relief they were pumped and cleaned EVERYDAY. To me that is just one fantastic example of how caring these owners are to their patrons comfort. It is clear that they take pride in their establishment and I'm confident they will continue to restore this beautiful place to it's former (before the previous owners) glory. It truly is an amazing vacation destination. I will be happy to come back for many years to come.

Not a 5 star hotel.... a rustic cabin on the edge of the woods on a road less travelled. The staff was friendly and great to deal with. Breakfast was not free, but frankly, I have never had a free breakfast this good. "The bacon guy" was friendly and really added to our time in the Black Hills with his recommendations on where to go. The location was great for what we wanted to do.

We went with cabin number 2. Two bedrooms (sort of a stretch - two rooms with queen beds and just enough room to walk around them). There was a sleeping loft, a small dining area, fridge and microwave. The fridge should have been cleaned more thoroughly between guests, but this didn't effect our stay. The bathroom was basic, but very functional. The key for us was quiet. This was no luxury place, but then again, we didn't have to listen people talking in the hallways either.

We have stayed at Recreational springs in the past and the management was horrible. The current manager, Darcy, told me they are under new ownership and were working through problems created in the past. She, and her whole staff made our experience so great. We didn't even notice any problems. The rooms may need some touch ups here and there,but they were clean and well appointed. They even moved a mini fridge and microwave into our room because we were travelling with kids. We had a great buffet breakfast one morning, and they turned us on to some fun things for us to do during the day. There was a bonfire when we got back and Darcy even found us some marshmallows to roast. People in the Black Hills are so nice and we would definitely come back to Recreational Springs Resort. Way better than it used to be!!!
