One of the best camping experiences we've had in our five years of travelling. Beyond the typical amenities, Big Pines offers a quiet, secluded forest atmosphere and is close to many great sites and activities in the South Dakota Black Hills area.
Owners take great pride and work very hard to make sure your camping experience is the very best it can be. Reservations were easy, informative and we were able to request a specific site. Check-in was fast and painless and staff escorted us to our site, ensured we were level with room for our four slide-outs and access to utilities. He even suggested the best location for our satellite and delivered firewood to our site within minutes of purchasing it at the office.
Sites are spacious and strategically located beneath Ponderosa pines with plenty of room between. Sites are gravel, mostly level with well-placed 20-30-50 amp utilities, a fire pit, picnic table, good water pressure and excellent Wifi available from 4 separate locations within the park. Even though no cable was available, it wasn't missed with so much to do in and around the Black Hills area.
Although we didn't use the restrooms, we did check them out and found them to be immaculate. The laundry room was clean and spacious with 4 washers and dryers, tables for folding and racks for hanging clothes. The park also provides a video game room, small library and 2 separate play areas for small children.
All of these features were great, but the personal care and attention of the owners made our stay truly a pleasure. We will be back for sure!! We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Black Hills Burger and Bun is ranked the #1 restaurant in Custer and offers buffalo burgers if you choose. Custer Gas provides propane at 1/2 price on Thursdays.
