55 Parks near Black Hawk, South Dakota

The access road is dirt/gravel and pretty bumpy (especially the first 100 yards) with a couple potholes that are avoidable. Interior roads and site pads were better condition dirt/gravel. Our site was about 3" out of level with good spacing, room for our truck in front or behind the camper, and utilities placed at the side. They had a grassy area with an old small picnic table (big enough for 4). Some sites had larger tables.
Laundry room was clean ($2.25/load, wash or dry). Owners are nice, friendly and very responsive. They have a recycle container for plastic and aluminum. Noise is medium and constant since we were about 200 yards from I-90. Oddly enough, we both slept well all 7 nights (maybe because it was like white noise). WiFi coverage was great and we had good (3/5 bars) Verizon cell signal. Our site had cable TV available and owner offered us a cable box for additional channels, but we were here for the sights and haven't watched TV for about 3 weeks. - FreeWheeler

Outstanding value at the PA rate, and very convenient, both for an overnight stop and for touring the local area. Alas, as per usual, along with convenience comes noise - you are parked right along the interstate, and a train track. The parking spots are pretty close together, but set up for very easy navigation in and out. The utilites are clean, modern and in good condition. The park is very well kept. The customer service was fantastic. About half an hour to get to Mt Rushmore from here. Camping World nearby. Wifi and Verizon signals both good. I chose a W/E site for $15, but for $5 more, you can get a sewer hookup and cable tv. - KAP99

We stayed here last August. We stayed here again because the cooler than normal temperatures meant we wouldn't need a pool to cool off. We again had a somewhat not level, gravel, pull through, FHU site. Since we were able to get satellite reception, we passed on the cable TV. The WiFi was fine for our minimal needs. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were clean but probably inadequate if the park is anywhere near full (there are lots of non- sewer sites). The staff we dealt with was very helpful and friendly. There are recycling bins for cans and plastic. - Jerry S

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

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

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

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. - User2955

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. - Eureka12

I read other reviews saying the sites were too close, but I think they were fine. Enough room for our needs.
The staff/owners are great. Really friendly and accommodating.
The location is great. I took the dog for a walk every day in the campground and in the park adjacent to the campground. The park is marvelous; well maintained and lots to do.
There were many campers with pets and everyone cleaned up after themselves. There is also a wonderful dog park just down the (paved) trail.
I would definitely stay at this campground when in the Black Hills. It's on the edge of town so you have easy access to the city's amenities, as well as, easy access to the multitude of attractions in the surrounding area. - The Original RV

Overpriced, no amenities. The sites are small and shady no one was next to us so it wasn't bad, but if it were full, it would be cramped and noisy. Our site was not level. When we arrived, it was not busy, the owner checked us in we did not get a flyer listing camp rules, location of trash, etc. She seemed like since she already received 2 nights deposit, it did not matter that we were here. Owner lives on the property and seemed like we were imposing on her property. She then told us that cable would be $2 extra and we would be given a cable box that we would have to program and also call the cable company to turn it on. We asked if antenna would work and she said probably not. We did not purchase the cable, we did not raise antenna and received 14 channels very clear. Good wifi. This campground is okay if you just want a place to park your rig. We like to sit outside, relax and take in the views, but the only view we had was the backside and trash bins of the hotel next door. The lake is a short walk from the sites to a large grass field with not even a bench or table. This park is away from I-90 in town and not really easy to get to. This park is close to the attractions we were interested in seeing. We would not stay here again. - savizz

Wow, finding an RV park in Rapid City in October is dicey! I called a few and found out they were closed for the season. This one was still open, and the good news is..... they are open year round! The bad news is..... you have to weasle through Rapid City about 10 miles to get here, and there is road construction where you are holding your breath hoping you don't knock down one of the little divider sticks. The rate I am showing is with Good Sam Discount BEFORE taxes. Apparently, cable TV is $2 extra, but the owner forgot to ask me if I wanted cable when I checked in. When I asked about cable and Wi-Fi, he told me to go ahead and hook up to the cable. The cable had OODLES of channels. Wi-Fi worked great! The only down side is that the sites are cramped. The rental cabins are right behind your back window, and your next door neighbor is pretty close. Well, it's not "pass the poupon" close, but kind of cramped. No one was next to me at the time, so it wasn't bad, but I can see if it were full, it would be cramped! There are great trees for shade, but if you have slides, this could be a problem. I am only in a 32 foot Class C with 2 slides, but I had to position myself so the slides wouldn't hit anything. There is a great lake to walk to and sit near. I don't tow a car and this place isn't close to much to walk to. - DXSMac

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

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

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

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. - raider49er

Spent 5 nights for first time south Dakota visit. Older park...but you can't beat customer service,location to town and attractions. Close at airforce base if military. Not to mention best views in area. Very dog friendly with several areas designated for walking etc. Lots of nature..saw deer, turkey, cows, rabbits right from site. We had planned 6 nights but had to leave 1 day early for distance to next destination and we were reimbursed for the night...which we did not expect or ask. Mgr owner is hardworker and is good for park and constantly updating as new owners. - GrandpaBentley

Rate is based on monthly stay. We stayed here primarily because of the location. Just outside the heart of Rapid City with easy access to the Black Hills, the bypass to the newer shopping area, and right off the highway, the location makes it easy to access shopping, dining, and tourist attractions. The owners are friendly and are working to improve the park. Sites are tiered, narrow, and fairly level gravel with convenient hookups. An older park, interior roads are crumbling although the owners are working on improvements. The major drawback for us was the water; probably the hardest well water we've ever encountered, it left a film on dishes and required recharging our large water softener every three days. The WiFi generally worked well depending on the time of day, and Verizon cell service was good but data (4G) was intermittent. No cable TV but ample OTA and no restriction to satellites from most sites. A number of long-term residents, mostly in the back-in sites, and some are trashy. If not for the water, we'd love to return, but probably will have to look elsewhere. - Meanderman

We thoroughly enjoyed this park. Our gravel site was level with just enough room in the front for the car to be parked sideways. The staff was very helpful and appeared to be updating the park. We would definitely come back. - Meme508

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
