“Our home away from home!!!! Recommend to everyone coming to the area!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

Just returned from another beautiful vacation to the Black Hills. Our stay would not be complete without the excellent care and respect given to us every year by the owner and staff of Mystery Mountain!!! We have stayed here every year for the last 11 years - and would not even consider another place. We recommend Mystery Mountain to everyone coming to the Black Hills area! We come with family and friends every year and stay in trailers and tents - the bathrooms are always kept clean and the staff could not be any more friendly or accomodating - they even will deliver ice and fire wood to your campsite!!! The food is wonderful and so reasonably priced that we don't even bring food to cook at the campsite anymore!!! We have traveled and camped for many years and have never found a place as great as this - highly recommend to anyone and everyone coming to the Black Hills. Thank you again to all the staff for another great year!!!!!

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!!
