First of all...I requested an e-mail reservation...she said ....we don't do that here..
.We'll mail it. Yes who does Snail Mail anymore! We had a site right up front by the office. #34. Please....anyone that is elderly or impaired should not be in this site. Behind the trailer is a drop--off of probably 45 degrees or more...when you get to the base of drop-off the picnic table in no way shape or form can be level.....and that is where the fire pit is. When you set on your own patio...your so close to the next person on the left...your practically sitting on their sewage hose....it's right on the property line between the two sites. We made do by setting an E-Z up on a sliver of grass....on our side of the site....A gentleman came over and requested we put our E-Z up down BEHIND the trailer in the drop-off....My husband explained his wife has vertigo and can't go up and down that hill....I also have congestive heart failure and can't handle that exercise! 3 days later the owner/manager stated we needed to move our E-Z up closer to the trailer because NOBODY wanted the site because we were crowding them out....closer to the trailer meant that the picnic table and E-Z up had to be on the front of the driveway on the dirt...next to our car! What REALLY made me angry is that my husband gave her no argument...yet she said " Got it!!!!Have you got it?" The other thing that made us angry is that there were many many sites available. And they did get a fifth wheeler in next to us. We moved our E-Z up on the dirt as close to the trailer as we could...but when the rain came...it flooded under our trailer and in front of the door....and yep you got it under our E-Z up...so we were in the MUD!!! Since this site is in the front close to the office they could easily divert the water into a grassy area on the other side of the site without impacting the campers to the left.
This woman also was rude to other guests and to staff while we were in the store. Not only am I writing this review on the website but I will notify Good Sam! There is poor to non existing WiFi....Cell service....even if they have a tower right on their building! My son and I were planning to come back again...until they made us move our E-Z up....We won't be back...besides we will tell our family and friends in the Dakota's to avoid this place. She was rude!!!

We stayed for 8 nights, had a nice long pull through at the SW end of the park. There was a variety of camping spots there, from tent sites, camper cabins, back ins and pull throughs, so there was a mix of people. Everything from families with small children to older couples. The young lady that checked us in was more than helpful, and a member of the staff led us to our spot - nice touch. The spots were spaced well enough, and we did not use the shower house or bathrooms since we had full hookups. Now for the negatives. The wifi was not working, even though we had a signal. We were told at check in that they were working on it, but never had wifi during our visit. The cell reception was minimal, so we had to go up the hill or into town to get email or access the web, unless we were outside in the right spot. The staff was great other than one older lady in the office that clearly didn't want to be there or deal with any customers. When we decided to leave a day early, she couldn't wait to point out that there would be no refunds, even though I wasn't asking for one. I'm undecided as to whether we will go back when we visit the Black Hills again - there are a lot of great campgrounds that are only a few dollars more per night.

Overall we had a good experience. We stayed one night, the bathrooms were clean and we had no problems. We stayed on an off-peak day, so I can't comment on what it would be like with all the campsites full, but Cindy was very nice and check-in was easy plus they have bikes our kids could ride around the facility.

We have had 2 great experiences with Beaver Lake. We have 2 Teens and 2 dogs in a 5th Wheel. The staff are great, the facilities were clean, and the family was content and happy when we were stuck at the campground. It is also a great location to Custer State Park and Mt. Rushmore.

Beaver Lake campground is rated a 9.5/10 by TL and I was expecting more than what we experienced. When you enter the park, there are at least 15 signs telling you what to do, what not to do, rules, regulations, etc. When you check-in you are also given a 8x11 sheet with all the other rules. It is very un-welcoming.

Our site was small, very close to the next RV and had not been cleaned before we arrived.

We did not use any of the parks ammenities, so cannot comment on those. However, the location is convienient to Custer and we did enjoy all the wildlife in the park. We had deer, squirrels, chipmonks, and rabbits visit our site every night which we found very entertaining.
