Date of Stay: June, 2015
We stayed for 2 mos, May and June 2015. Rate is based on monthly rate. The grass was mowed twice in 2 mos. The new manager has changed this park and not for the good. We have stayed here 4 times in the past and I will not go back. Tried to reserve a site 3 weeks before arrival and could only speak with manager, who was unavailable. No returned phone call. Called again and mgr said monthly rentals could only book 1 week in advance but curtly said she would try to do it. Employees not very happy with their jobs and it shows. Pool area was clean but cold water. Had to sign contract for our stay with rules stating no outdoor furniture, no lawn ornaments of any kind, nothing outside the RV. We didn't put anything out but realized later that no one enforces any rules. Wifi is almost nonexistent. Site was level with concrete pad for RV and vehicle. Grass was full of stickers and very tall. This was a nice friendly park but this manager has taken it down with her rules and approach to matters. We left early because of the mess in this park. People racing up and down the road with loud music until after midnight. We will Noat go back unless there are some changes such as new managers that train their employees.

This park is in an excellent location for Mt Rushmore and close enough to Rapid City for supplies and restaurants. Almost half of the park seems to be live ins. Roads are gravel and very narrow. We have watched big rigs trying to maneuver in and out with much difficulty and the park is not busy right now. Many sites are aligned so that your front door opens to a shared covered patio and 2 picnic tables side by side that are shared with your neighbor, which could be awkward if both parties tried to BBQ and eat outside at the same time. Restrooms all need to be repaired and updated. They were not kept clean while we were there. Laundry room had a washer full of water that wasn't repaired while we were there and 3 dryers were out of order but not marked. Laundry room was not kept clean. Wi-fi was good. Overall, we would not stay here again as there are many other RV parks in this area.

This is a rundown small park with only about 5 sites open and the rest occupied with long term tenants. There is only one road down the middle of the park with a turn around spot at the end. The office appears to be closed. We were met by a woman on a golf cart that led us to the back and collected the nightly fee in cash. She did not take our names or ask us to complete any registration. There was no wi-fi signal where we were in the back so I'm not sure if the park has wi-fi. We did not see any restrooms or showers. The road and site were dirt. The other RV traveling with us awoke to a flat tire on their RV and 4 screws were found in the tire. A tenant there told us they probably came from the park because they have been working on a building upfront. We did not feel safe here. We would definitely not stay here again.

This is 1 of 2 RV parks in this area. It is unusual in that you pick your spot and wait for the owner to come by to register and pay after 5 p.m. The owner is very friendly. There is no onsite manager. It is definitely a 'no frills' park as stated in previous review. The wi-fi was the best I have had in an RV park for a long time. There are no shade trees, grass or picnic tables at the sites. It is all gravel. It is located 5 miles from town and no convenience store or even vending machines if you wanted a snack or soda. There are only 2 bathrooms with showers which are not designated men or women's. The restrooms were both out of toilet paper and paper towels and remained that way all day due to the fact that the owner only shows up after 5 p.m. We would stay here again if passing through but would be better prepared.

This park has grass and big shade trees. It is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. It was well kept and clean. I was rarely able to connect to the Wi-Fi while there. It was pet friendly and we enjoyed visiting with other pet owners in the park. Laundry room was adequate, but some machines could be replaced. Restrooms and showers were clean. Staff was friendly and courteous. We would definitely stay here again.
