“Enjoyed our stay”

We stayed for three nights while sight seeing in the area. Our cabin was clean, comfortable and everything was in working order. The staff was really friendly and the pancakes were dilicious. We would stay here again!!

We had a great stay at Mystery Mountain Resort. The bathrooms and laundry were immaculate. The store was well stocked and their prices were lower then the surrounding stores. The staff was very friendly and most accommodating, they went above and beyond in making our stay the most enjoyable. The owner, Art, lives on site and was most accessible and friendly. The resort is located centrally in the Black Hills to all the attractions and is easily accessed off of Highway 16 from Rapid City. We had a most enjoyable time there and have made plans to return again next year. If your into riding motorcycles, you won't find a greater location to use as a home base for all that the area has to offer. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Campground offers full hookups to tent sites quiet and wooded.

Just to add to the other positive reviews, it's all true! The breakfasts were served fast and delicious, and pancakes were only $1 for all you could eat! The resort is very clean and well maintained, and service was excellent! Everything you might need was there, store, laundry, pool, hot tub, mini golf, horseshoes, and really close to all attractions! Lots of campsites, too, cabins had flat screen TVs with satellite service. Art and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Mystery Mountain Resort is located in the Black Hills. They have all you can eat pancakes each morning in the summer for $1 and they also offer other breakfast items. It is very close to all the main attractions. Minutes away from Keystone, Mt. Rushmore, caves, and many more attractions.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin that slept 10. It had closets and dressers in each bedroom. It had a kitchen with everything you needed. Our cabin even had a piano and that was a big hit with the kids. They also had satellite tv.
The bathrooms had showers/tubs and the staff supplied fresh towels every morning. The bathrooms were also stocked with shampoo, lotions, and toilet paper. The staff emptied the garbage every morning and were very helpful with anything you needed. The cabins had grills, decks, and fire pits. You could watch the sunrise over the black hills from your deck and enjoy a fire and roast marshmallows each night.
Mystery Mountain has a pool and hot tub, horeshoe pit, basketball and play area, mini golf and walking trails. They have so much to do at the resort you don't have to leave. There are even laundry facilities.
The management/staff are very friendly and can help you with anything. The store has everything you need or the stuff you forgot when you left home.
Our family had such a great time that our youngest son told us we had to stay 2 weeks next time.
Thank You Mystery Mountain for a vacation my family will never forget. THANKS!!

Mystery Mountain Resort is perfectly located near the heart of the Mount Rushmore area in the Black Hills. It offers camping for tenters to the largest RVs, and comfortable air conditioned, completely furnished cabins that sleep up to 14 people! Through most of the summer season you can start your day with delicious all-you-can-eat pancakes each morning for $1...they also offer other ala carte breakfast items.
We held a family reunion in July...taking advantage of the various sized cabins that fit our individual needs. Those we rented each had a fully furnished kitchen with full sized stove, refrigerator and a dining area! The living areas were spacious with comfortable furniture and tvs. The bedrooms were also furnished with comfortable beds, dressers and even closets! The bathrooms had either showers or tubs and the staff supplied us with fresh towels, shampoos and lotions everyday. There are decks, grills and fire pits at each cabin, so our campfires were a huge hit at the end of the day.
Mystery Mountain has a large pool and hot tub, horeshoe pit, basketball and play area, mini golf and walking trails. There's even a 'mystery house' . The resort store offers all the things you forgot to pack, plus firewood and ice. There are complete laundry facilities and shelter houses that are available for large group gatherings, equipped with electricity and sound. We held a pot luck one night for 62 people!!
I can't say enough good things about Art and his staff at Mystery Mountain. Everyone is so friendly, you soon feel like family! Any question or request is quickly addressed. The cabins were absolutely immaculate! The staff checks in daily to remove the trash, replace the towels in the bathrooms and kitchens, and offer anything else you could want or might need.
We had such a fantastic time at Mystery Mountain...there were tears when it was time to leave, and we can't wait to go back again!!

Room Tip: Check out the website to determine which cabin will best serve your needs...they sleep from 4-14 peo...
