56 RV Parks near Black Hawk, South Dakota
Aug 2017 - $22.00
Since we were not going to be spending any tourist time in the Black Hill on this return home leg of our trip, we decided to stop at this basic and cheap park for our one night in the area. See my August 20115 and 2016 reviews for more detailed reviews of this park. We were again able to get a FHU, pull through site with minimal cable TV at the PPA rate. Most most sites are satellite TV friendly. With only about 15 RVs in the park, the Wi-Fi was fine. The bathrooms were clean but I can't see them being adequate in a full park with lots of tents and non-sewer sites and tents. With newer machines, the laundry was a bit expensive. There are some recycling bins. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are no recreational facilities. The park is a little bit off the interstate exit but right next to I-90. It is all by itself and there is nothing within walking distance. - Jerry S

Other then the long dusty gravel road into the park it was great. WiFi tested at an amazing 30 megs. - Retiredrvr

This is the third time we have stayed here. Excellent location, 50 amp, wifi was good, sewer kind of far back, not quite level, but not bad. Sites were very long. Washers and dryers both $2.25 per load. The only thing we didn't like was the mile long gravel driveway to get to the park. Other than that, we would definitely stay here again. It's very convenient to Rapid city and also to the Sturgis bike rally. Nice owners. - Ginny H

We met friends there or we may not have stayed. Quite expensive for what it offered. Clean restrooms and laundry. Good Verizon service. Easy access to Mt. Rushmore. Large pull thru. Way out in the country but easy to get to. Farms all around and peaceful and quiet. Their monthly rate isn't bad but you can not make reservations and with the limited sites you take a chance of driving all the way out there and finding it full in the high season. - rhianna

This is a good place to stay if you want to get away from the interstate and experience what the area is about. The host was nice. The site was plenty big. Everyone was friendly. The scenery and ambiance is nice and relaxing. The weather can be exciting. There was hail a few times. You can drive to Mount Rushmore from here pretty easily and Sturgis and Deadwood are up the road a bit. Rapid City has everything you might need. - skyshark

This park is good for simple overnight stays. Quiet, full hook-up, 50amp, pull-thru sites on gravel or grass with good Verizon signal. No resort-type amenities (e.g. pool, hot tub, etc.). Although we did not use the shower rooms, the laundry is more like a living room with easy chairs and a reading library. We stayed for three days - two of the days at the Passport America rate. We would stay here again. - rjohnso3a

Don't know why more people haven't reviewed since 2016. We stayed a week in June & moved to our mailing service in Box Elder for a week but they kept having to move us & w/4 slides thats a pain. We decided for the last week or 2 of our stay, we would move back up here to Piedmont. Were here for 4th of July & being the Campground literately is on I-90, across the highway was a fireworks store. For 3 nights leading up to the 4th & on the 4th we had awesome fireworks show. The campground is roomy, plenty of spaces and space between, picnic tables, (had fire rings but SD is under a no fire law right now with drought, so they removed them) There is a mobile home park on the far side of the restaurant and the campgrounds on the other far side of the restaurant. There is a $1.20 washer and a free dryer. Nice clear and clean (but very busy) swimming pool. Some trees, some spaces are shaded, some out in the open, some partial shade. There are TeePees to rent and little cabins with small porches and rockers on them. There are permanent RVers here in much much older RVs but areas around their RVs are pretty clean and neat. For some reason I-90 traffic is not alot and we never hear any of it unless we sit outside but then it isn't like you can't hear each other type noise. It is family owned and they are all welcoming and pleasant. Very easy going. Restaurant has a minimal menu. More like a bar menu...but reasonable and the few times we tried it, their food was good. A few sites are not level enough for big rigs but while here they were putting out more rocks and dirt to help with that. But there are plenty of sites so if you are large like us 40' with toad, you will find spaces with and without shade. BTW, the spaces you have seen mentioned that have canopies, they are wood canopies with concrete decks but are very limited & cost more. Wifi is good but not secure. AT&T worked great. We like it here alot and if we came back to the area, we would stay here in a heartbeat. - Victoria Grace

Great campground for the price. Some sites are gravel, some are grass. A few sites have a patio with a small roof over them. Also a restaurant/bar with great people, drinks, and food. Wifi worked well for the campground, we were the week after sturgis so the place was only about half full. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

Campground is between Rapid City and Sturgis. We stayed at a cabin for a few nights then a tent site for over a week.
Rates are unbeatable: $50 a night for an air-conditioned, medium sized cabin with two Queen sized beds, which includes a fridge/freezer.
The $10 per night tent sites (that's right: 10 bucks a night), include electric, lots of space and a covered picnic table.
There are several buildings with bathrooms and showers, somewhat outdated looking but fully functional.
Owners are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you out if you are in a bind. They are laid back and leave you alone.
Nice little restaurant/bar on campground premise with good food and good people. No noise from the bar/restaurant as it is someways away from the campground.
Downside: somewhat close to I-90, but at night the hwy is pretty quiet.
Friendly residents, friendly owners: nice little place in an otherwise barren and inhospitable land.
Also free wifi (no password) rocked in the tent site area. - mynyel

We stayed in the back 40. It was just a dried up field with dog droppings all over. We did have 50 amp and sewer. The water faucet leaked but we did have adequate pressure. The staff was friendly. Would not stay here again. The flies were awful. - Jeanne Rapp
Jul 2017 - $41.00
We attending a group camping event at the resort. The resort web site doesn't include ANY information about group camping. The group camping area is over a large hill AWAY from the main resort. We only received basic hook ups and no discount for being away from the resort. No lodge, camp store, trees, wifi, limited showers that weren't nice, and NO WIFI!!! Total rip off! - Dog-gone2017

This campground is pretty well kept, but they could use an extra dumpster, it was over flowing the last couple of days we were here. Gravel interior roads, a few small pot holes. Wifi was so slow, I gave up. Some sites are very close together. Some sites have picnic tables, ours did not. No issues with utilities. Pretty far drive to Custer State Park. Not too bad to Mt Rushmore. In between Sturgis and Rapid City. We would stay here again. - Vicki K

Shady, close to town, walk to beautiful city park and gravel stream-side nature trails across the street. Excellent customer service from staff. Would be a 10 if it had some space between sites (typical narrow grass strip adequate for our slide and awning) and if utilities were consistently located (we shared electric with neighbor and dumped on way out due to sewer connection in front of site). No biggie either way, we look forward to returning. - Travelin Traceys

We stayed for 9 nights. The first two nights were at $82.50(last weekend of Bike Week) and the next six nights were at $61, with a free night to make it the 'weekly rate'. We've stayed at some tight sites before, and this is probably number 2 on the list for how close can you get to your neighbor . It's a relatively small park anyway, but they have folks jammed in as tight as possible. Because we still work fulltime we have two criteria when picking a park....full hookups, close proximity to an airport. After staying here, we'll be sure to add dog area to our list. The dog walk was across the street from park... like go out of the park, cross traffic and over to a patch of grass beside the bike trail. My dogs were freaked out by traffic so it definitely wasn't fun taking them out. It's not a bad park, but it's the equivalent of apartment living in the city. It worked for us because of the proximity to the airport, but if we come back to the area, we'll take vacation so aren't hindered by that criteria. There were amazing parks on the Custer State Park side. - DaBlairs

Great place to stay for the Sturgis rally. It's away from the hustle and bustle but close enough for a nice ride. Staff were accommodating (they moved our motorcycle trailer after we unloaded our bike) and helped guide us as we backed into our site. - OlsonKD

The RV sites are located at the corner of E. Centre St and Cambell St. The entrance is on E. Centre. There is no staff at the RV park. Pull in to any site, disconnect your toad, drive south on the interior dirt road with your toad, make a right turn and look soon for the office at 800 San Francisco Street. Go in, pay $30., get a tag telling the date you will be leaving. They will send a person to unlock your electric post. Same price, 30 or 50 amp. The person they send will know which sites are 30 and which are 50 amp. Important: call first to be sure a site is available. While only 5 sites were occupied when we stayed, if an event is scheduled, like a fair, then it is unlikely a site will be available. Office open M-F, 8 AM to 5 PM. GPS: since the RV park has no address, you can use 600 Cambell St., the address of a local business across the street. Once there, the park will be obvious. Use Exit 60 from I-90 and drive south looking for signs "Central States Fair Grounds. Very good overnight stop. No shade. Level. - michcamper38

We stayed overnight here to be close to a service location the next morning. It serves the purpose of an overnight stay; long pull-thrus, gravel sites, good power and water. Small trees, dead grass, a bit of road noise, and on the night we were there, lots of empty sites. Check-in is by phone and they'll send someone out to unlock the power box and collect the fee. Surprisingly, the rates do not change during the Sturgis Rally, although even then there were few people using the park. Convenient to the Freightliner dealer and Rapid City, otherwise there are much better places for just a few dollars more. - Meanderman
Aug 2010 - $30.00
Used this campground because it was only $30 compared to most I called around here which was $60 and up. Some of the sites were on concrete but I chose a gravel site as it was closer to the showers. Was a good place for seeing the sights of Mt. Rushmore etc. The price is the only thing this campground has going for it. - trailmaster

This was just a stop over for us that was cheap and convenient off the interstate. Campground was unkept with no amenities but the price was right. - cruzin57

As most of the reviewers have mentioned, this is the rear parking lot of Jack's Campers in Piedmont, SD. There are absolutely no amenities here, only the basic full hook-ups including water, sewer, electric, and Wi-Fi. There is no cable TV, but our external antenna picked up sufficient channels to be satisfactory. It is very quiet here, even though it is fairly close to I-90, but after the first night, we hardly noticed the traffic.
During our stay, there were a half-dozen RV's in the "park" but only three were occupied, so there was very little internal traffic. Jack's is still parking some of their units close to the cabin with the Wi-Fi antenna, but we had sufficient service/signal during our stay.
My only complaint, and it is very minor, is that the grass around the pedestal is not cut, so I had to pull weeds and grass to find and hook up to the sewer connection. It just looks unkempt. They should also decide if the pull-thru sites are going to be gravel or grass, as the grass is taking over the sites.
This CG is convenient to the Black Hills and all the activities in the general Rapid City area. For $17.00 a night, it can't be beat. - Love To Travel 2

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. - lpyand

Positive comments here. This little campground has received some pretty tough reviews, but I understand that it's impossible to please everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Yes, the spots are a little tight, but there's still plenty enough space to put your chairs out, do some outdoor cooking, and meet some really nice people. Yes, the roads are a bit rough and the campground could use a little cosmetic work, BUT the view is beautiful, the campground and facilities are clean, there are great motorcycle roads beginning right outside the park, and it's convenient to many tourist attractions and more. The new owners are some of the hardest working people you have ever met and are doing everything possible to bring this little gem up to aesthetics that will please the pickiest of travellers. We've met many nice people here and would definitely stay here again. Give these folks a chance. We camped here in a 30' motorhome towing a 16' enclosed motorcycle trailer. - Arlene G

Sites are narrow and tiered with drop-offs between sites making walking around the site tricky. Site was not long enough so our toy hauler ramp was in road when down. Had to park our truck across the street in order to fit our bicycles and paddle boards in front of our rig. Restroom facilities were clean and updated. Didn't use pool but looked well-kept. Great view of city from end of campground. Staff were all friendly. - Mobile Martins

Stayed overnight. Park has some awesome views however for us, it ended there. Staff at desk did not appear happy about being there. I was to be escorted to site (which is fairly normal) however I mentioned to guide that I did not want to unhook and was curious if I could fit in..told me he didn't know? He guided me into my tiered site and pushed me to far left though I was trying to get more centered. My RV was in close proximity to a tree on right side (for leaving) and grateful camper in front of me did not park his truck behind his RV or I may not have gotten out. Quiet hours are 9 PM to 8 AM. There is an 8x10 sheet of what you can't do at park as well as further pet instructions on receipt. Personally, if we hadn't met some good folks camping there it would be a total downer for us. Not sure why I picked this park as have stayed elsewhere on previous trips and will not stay here again. - ownedafew

The staff was very friendly. They seemed glad to have RVers stay the night. There is plenty of room in the back of the level parking lot. There was no cut grass anywhere which would make it difficult for those with dogs. There is no charge, but the website required at least $1. Be sure to shop at Cabela's to show your appreciation. - Debnroux

Nice place for an overnight and free dump. You can access Cabelas easily from I-90. The RV parking has all paved sites, very quiet even though it is close to the freeway. - simonsrf

We stayed here overnight in a 40' motorhome. The Cabela's store is right off of I-90 in Rapid City. They have a huge parking area for RVs and campers who want to stay overnight for FREE. It is no-hookup dry camping, however, they have on-site potable water spigot as well as a free RV dump at the back of the parking lot. The area is lighted very well at night. We felt very safe. You can run a generator if you have it in your camper, but, observe good noise limits with your fellow camping neighbors if there are any. We would definitely stay here again. - Tiffinatic

This campground is primarily for members of the Americas Mailbox mail forwarding service. Many are here to change their residency to South Dakota. That's why we stayed. For that purpose this campground is OK. It is spartan and a bit tight. Few amenities. There is a larger section behind this one that is under construction. I spoke with the general manager and he confirmed they have had some issues with some of the contractors which caused construction to stop. They are close to having that resolved. - RoadtripImages dot com

Arrived last night ... total disappointment ... we are using their "Mailbox" service which is a good one, so we thought we would support their campground ... NOT a good idea! - bobbodean
Jun 2017 - $32.00
We stayed here because we needed to get our licenses and car registered which has to date taken almost 4 weeks because of paperwork but not Americas Mailboxes fault. We were originally put in space 18 with full hook up ($32.) but then a few days later we told we had to move to an electric only site ($25.). After that we were asked to move two more times so it seems there are more permanent RVers than Mailbox service customers or outsiders. They have what appears to be more spaces going in on another piece of land behind theirs but no one was out there doing any work all the time we were there, so I am assuming something or someone has halted the job. Either way, very very inconvenient, yet our emails from them are always showing their signature lines to say Don't forget, we have RV parking now and cheapest around. May be cheapest (though 5 mins to Piedmont is cheaper) but being cheaper I guess means all the permanents have moved in. There is barely any room between the full hook up sites at all. No trees, no shade. Weeds, no grass between spaces. Was very disappointed. The front desk people inside are VERY VERY HELPFUL. As well as the other Americas Mailbox employees for Americas Mailbox side of the business. But I am sorry to say that the RV park is poorly run, disorganized and not pleasant a stay at all. Just to note, site 18 had full hookup, site 5 was electric only but they do have a dump and water fill station but when you dump or fill up, you are blocking the road to get around sites. In the future I would only stay here if I had no other choice and it was only for one to two nights. - Victoria Grace
