We stayed here while doing some business in the area. Owner was very friendly and helpful. It has easy access to and from I-90. Some traffic noise but not overwhelming. We stayed around the 4th of July and enjoyed nightly fireworks displays from the firework booths on the other side of the highway. That may be good or bad depending on if you like that kind of thing or not. Free WiFi and Cable TV both worked well. The layout of the camp sites were not set up well. Some sites are set up with utilities set up on the wrong side and cause confusion as to what site they belong to. We had to go back 3 times to get a site that would work for us. Either there was no water available, or the site was on the side of a hill and we would not be able to level our coach. The bathrooms were somewhat rustic but usable. Shower stalls were nice size, big enough for a large man. We were there 11 days and noticed the bathrooms and showers were only cleaned twice. Laundry facilities were located in the women's restroom, so if you are a man doing laundry, you need to holler in and make sure there are no females present. We did not see a club house or hot tub as listed on the PA website. Price paid is through PA and is good year round with the exception of Sturgis (usually in August). It was somewhat disappointing as the park is in a good location, but could really use some TLC. We noticed the park was up for sale when we arrived. We would stay here again short term, mostly due to the PA price. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This RV park is not a resort. It appears to have been built in the 1950s and hasn't seen much in upgrades over the years. Roads and pads are dirt. There are nice grass tent sites on the south and west sides. There are a number of cabins that seem to be in pretty poor repair. A car lot has been established on the north side and the part adjoining the park looks like a junk yard. An old dumpster is right at the entrance. I think the Sturgis motorcycle rally keeps this place open. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the back 40 and loved it. It was away from the pool and the noisy area. It was very nicely isolated with full hook ups. We saw 6 deer this evening while walking the dog. Nice small pond with lots of hungry fish and several turtles that like the bread you bring. With in 10 miles of all shopping and all of the local attractions. We went to Devils Tower today. Awesome attraction. We will stay here again. The staff is very friendly. It does need some TLC but they are working on that. There is 161 sights with water and electric. Some with FHU. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped her for 2 nights while visiting Mt. Rushmore and the Crazy Horse attractions. The facility was dirty in both restrooms and showers. The women's shower room had the exterior door locked open while the interior doors did not even latch. Shower lights did not work and water was barely warm in two of the three stalls. Laundry was filthy. While the lady who met us upon arrival was nice, the campground was quiet and still at night, we were only the 4th guest in the entire campground. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Piedmont is a small community halfway between Rapid City and SD. Elk Creek Resort is just one of many in the area and is about a mile off I-90 so no highway or train noise. The park is separated into two areas: the front 10+ acres and the back 40 acres, which is over a hill about 1/8 mile away (we liked the back). Office, store, laundry and pool are in the front 10, all are adequate but nothing fancy. Both areas are grass with gravel access road, which creates some dust. Some trees in both front and rear sections Creek and pond in the rear ares. Sites are level. Some full hook ups and some just water and electric. Dump station and water are available. Plenty of room between RV's, even for the largest, especially in the rear area. Lots of deer and wild turkey. Kids made the pool rowdy and noisy, as they allow local area folks to use pool also. Wi-Fi access is not good. Slow in the front area and no Wi-Fi in the rear area. Owner is nice and tries to be helpful. Pool is clean. Don't know about restrooms or showers as we didn't use them. Nothing in Piedmont shopping wise. We had to drive to Rapid City (10 miles) for most shopping: ie Walmart Super Center, Lowes, Starbucks, etc. We came for a rally and stayed one month. Would come here again. Be sure to catch the "Petrified Forest" which is on the property. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Needs a lot of TLC. Although they advertise 161 sites there are only 26 with electric and water and they are too close together. There were 2 portable toilets sitting in an open field where the rest of the sites were located. I assume they were there for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August but a very disgusting sight to see in an RV park. It is definitely not a resort. The women's room looked reasonably clean but it took a couple of days to clean the men's room. I would not return here again. There are too many RV parks in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here four nights and the park was quite with good water and electricity. A resort it is not but the sites were fairly level and we were mostly interested in a place to spend the night after a day of sightseeing. They accept PPA and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very basic park. No bathroom or shower facilities. Good spot to visit Black Hills area. There are absolutely no amenities, but for the price what do you expect? This is a place to park and go see the sites. Sites are pull through and back in. Some without sewer. Sites are pretty level. You are parked in the middle of the RV dealerships rv storage area but who cares. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small park behind Jack's Campers. You actually enter through Jack's and the park is up behind the lot. It is quiet and the roads are well covered in gravel. We stayed here 4 nights. The hookups are great. The Wi-Fi works well. The closer you are to the cabin at the entrance, the better the signal is. They do use some sites to "store" units after working on them. For some reason, they seem to take the closest spots to the Wi-Fi for that, which isn't smart. I mentioned that to the manager so you can see if it changes. For price and features, we would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Everything you read in former reviews is very true! The cheapest place we camped during our vacation! One addition to the former reviews: also beautiful sites on well maintained grass, both pullthrough or back-in. Indeed, no traffic noise at all. We slept like a log! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Awesome place to stay while visiting Mount Rushmore, Rapid City and Sturgis. Nothing fancy here, actually there is nothing to do at all in the park per se, but this is a great base to use while touring the area. Don't let the low price scare you away, this place is very clean, has great tasting water, sewer connections at almost every site, two entry/exit dumpstations, fast/free WIFI, and minimal road noise (it's farther off I-90 than most campgrounds charging much more $$$). The campsites are graveled entry drives, some are pull through and some are back in. There is a large pasture behind the campsite with horses and a few cattle - but no animal smells. There is easy access to I-90 from either north or south. Jack's Campers is the business that this site is located at and they have a both a full service department and a very well stocked camping supply store on site. We highly recommend this campground and would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is an annex to an RV dealer, you actually drive through the dealership's parking lot to get to the CG. That is not a problem, can be a convenience if any parts, supplies or service are needed. The interior roads and pads are gravel, patios are grass. Pads are reasonably level, amply long and wide. Electricity, water and Wi-Fi are all good. Location is very convenient to I-90 for touring the black hills area, but far enough away that traffic is visible but not heard. We had to leave early due to a family emergency and they were processing a refund for us before we even asked for it. Will definitely stay there again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice clean campground with 30/50 amp service along with water & sewer. It was a great place to stay while we waited to get a new windshield and change our residency over to SD. There are no trees here or a bathroom/shower but if you are self contained it shouldn’t be a problem. The campground is located between the camping supply store and pasture land. You get off the I-90 at exit 40 or 44 and head along the service road (north side of the 90) to Jack’s Campers. There is traffic noise during the day but at night it’s pretty quiet. Haven’t heard a train here so that’s a plus!! Good power, water pressure and no problems with the sewer. Pull through sites and road in the park are gravel while back in sites are on mowed grass. Beautiful views of the Black Hills along with green pastures. Don’t know what it would look like mid summer…… Verizon Aircard, cell phone, and dome satellite had a good signal. There is free WIFI here with a strong signal. We were in site # 24 (pull through) which is close to one of the cabins where the WiFi antenna appears to be. $15.00 a night is a steal!! We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park is a great park to land and see the sites of the Black hills. It is between Rapid City and Sturgis on I-90. The park is owned and maintained by Jacks Campers, which is a full service RV center located on site. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The backdrop is the Black hills. We stayed here for month and a half at ten dollars a night, (extended stay rate). The normal rate is $15.00 a night for full hookups, with level gravel pads, and grassy islands. Very nice set up but no trees for shade which wasn't an issue given the comfortable temps. We would stay here again without hesitation Great Place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate stated reflects a monthly rate. This park is very well laid out and maintained, with a nice laundry room. Best suited as a quiet place to stay while touring or working in the area, as there is no pool or playground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is just a few miles north of Rapid City with very long spacious pull through gravel sites with thick grassy areas alongside. Owners are very nice and the long views amazing. Deer visit the park in the late afternoons. We camped here in a Motorhome.
