Shame on me. I just read one of the reviews and decided to stay here. I reserved a 50 amp site for a 40' motorhome with slides and a towed vehicle for a week. When I arrived they sent me to a site that was barely long enough for the motorhome, much less the car. The site is the most unlevel I have encountered in 6 years of fulltime RVing and it only had weak 30 amp electrical. When I went back to the office to talk to them about it they said "sorry" that is the best they could do. Oh, and sorry we overlooked the request for a 50 amp site. They had several open 50 amp sites, but those were reserved for the following weekend. We checked in on a Sunday and they kept those sites open for a week for others, but unwilling to assign me a site that I reserved. I talked to our neighbors that reserved two weeks. They were made to move after one week to an even worse site because their site had been reserved for someone else. This RV park has no concept of resource utilization. The roads are in bad shape and just basically trails through the trees. Sites are very close to neighbors. I will NOT stay here again.

In my years as a fulltime RVer I have never found a RV park with a better layout than this one. All sites are on very large and level concrete pads. Electrical was strong and Wi-Fi stable and fast. Easy access from I-40, but far enough away to avoid road noise. Restrooms, showers, and laundries clean and scattered throughout park. We will definitely stop here again.

Narrow and mostly unlevel sites. Good electrical and water. WiFi is advertised, but never worked in the fours days we were here. Good location to visit Anchorage. Not very attractive.

Stayed in an electric and water site in loop 64. Nice long site with plenty of room for the slides. Very good 50 amp electric was a surprise. Several elk in the campground with new calves.

Great location, just across the street from the bay. Good electrical, WiFi, and water. Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed the park in 2009, and it is even better now.

Great campground. Good view of sky for satellite TV. The only knock are poor cell service.

What a dump -- muddy, unlevel, and tall weeds. The owner is a JERK and is either a liar or just ignorant. We see why this place gets such bad reviews. The only reason we considered staying there is that it would be close for a family visit. We pulled in and told the owner we wanted to stay two nights and needed to dump on the way in. He said that it would be $30 per night for water/electric 30amp plus $15 to dump. I told the owner that in over four years of fulltiming we have never been asked to pay a dump fee if we stayed at a campground. He said that it is normal to charge a fee in the area. I didn't believe him and when I checked nine other campgrounds in the area, none charge for dumping if you stay with them. I see why the place was empty and junky. The owner's strange business plan seems to be working for him, but not for his customers. This guy said it bought the campground a couple of years ago. Too bad he didn't have the previous owner teach him something about running a business.

Very nice comfortable park. We were there just before they closed for the season so we nearly had the place to ourselves. Very quiet with good long pull-through sites, good Wi-Fi, and good water pressure. The only knock is the very weak electrical. Even with a nearly empty park the voltage was low.

We called twice during the week before our arrival checking on availability and amenities. Each time getting answers was like pulling teeth. When we arrived we didn't like the look or feel of the place. The owner or manager was unfriendly and indifferent. The sites are on a hill side, Some in the open and some in the trees. It looks like they just dumped a load of rock and called it a site. Most are really unlevel and the weeds were over growing the place. We decided to just do a drive through and go somewhere else. We cannot recommend anyone stay there.

Very nice park and convenient to Cape Cod, Mystic, New Bedford and Boston. Great electrical and water pressure. We kept extending our stay because it was so nice and relaxing there. Great fudge in the store at a very good price is an added bonus.

This campground was recommended by friends. It was a real disappointment. Except for a very few sites where they have added some rock, the sites are very unlevel. About half of the sites have a tree or two. It just happens that they placed the trees perfectly to block satellite signals. It is disgraceful that a place with such potential has been so poorly planned. I would stay there again if I could get one of the level, treeless sites.

Much to my regret I ignored the previous reviews for this campground. The electrical voltage was so bad that we kicked the breaker several times even though we just used one appliance at a time. Don't be fooled by the web site. The campground is chopped out of a hillside. The sites are not level and poorly planned. It was nearly impossible to work our way between all the trees to get to a site that had a 10 inch drop from one end to the other. Other sites I saw had low muddy areas. The clubhouse was junky and had mismatched worn furniture. I will not stay here again. Next time I will park on the exit ramp of a highway rather than stay here.

Great state park campground. It would have been better to have water bibs. Nice roomy sites and most are level. Lots of activities in park and nearby.

Date of Stay:

Great place. Friendly with lots of fun things to do. Good, roomy, level sites with good electrical and water pressure.

Date of Stay:

Convenient to all the local attractions and Rapid City. Clean restrooms and showers. All pull through sites. They have three different length sites. It amazed me that the office ALWAYS put class A motorhomes and 5ers in sites that were too short. Nearly everyone had to park their vehicles in adjacent sites. All sites had traces of rock and lots of dirt. I saw many sites, ours included, that had standing water and mud on the door side. Everyone seemed to sink two to six inches as they drove into their site. One day they used a blade to smooth out the ruts in the empty sites. Of course they didn't add any rock. Because of all the dirt and lack of gravel it will be bad there when the place finally dries out and the wind starts blowing all the dirt around. Wi-Fi was adequate. Even with all the cons, I would still stay here again because it is so convenient to Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, and Rapid City.
