We enjoyed our stay here with one exception. Their Wi-Fi was barely usable, even when I sat beside the office, and I could not get a Verizon cell signal that would support data, so I felt very disconnected, since I use my computer for all my trip planning. I even had to ride down the road toward town to have a good phone conversation! Other than that, this is a nice park. It is on a pretty steep hill and the sites are terraced. They have nice grass, and the bathrooms are good. Owners are friendly and work hard to keep the place looking nice. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Class A and longer 5's or TT will have a harder than normal getting into your spot. Lots of bunnies so if you have dogs beware. Staff is super with a helping hand if needed. Gravel roads and lots with semi level sites. Sits on the side of the hills so very steep grades both in and out. Clean showers and restrooms. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this place. The close proximity to Rushmore, Jewel Cave, Crazy Horse, was a huge plus. My kids loved the pool and water slide. They also loved counting the bunnies. The staff was really helpful when it came helping us with our travel plans. The sites we fairly spacious with trees for shade. We just thought this place was great for all types of campers. Lots of amenities to accommodate all. We will be back! We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Purple Pie Place in downtown Custer. Wonderful pie.

We loved this place. Clean park with a woodsy ambiance. Level, gravel, pull-through, full hookup site. Plenty of space between sites. Has fire ring and picnic table. Nice, friendly staff. Cute little bunnies roaming around. Cable TV with plenty of channels, but Wi-Fi is sporadic...sometimes good...sometimes not. Would've rated this place a 10 if it had better Wi-Fi. In addition to a pool, has a water slide. Slight fee for the slide. Plenty of space to walk the dog. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, family-run campground in a great location for exploring the Black Hills. We extended our stay by a night. The campground isn't very large and it's built on the side of a hill so we were close to the neighboring sites but above and below them. Our site was a pull-through with full hook-ups that needed some leveling. The wifi was non-existent. Our kids enjoyed the semi-tame rabbits that were in the campground. The weather was rainy while we were there so we didn't use the pool or waterslide. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Definitely drive the wildlife loop through Custer state park!

Very nice, hardworking folks run this park. The park has dirt/stone sites that can be somewhat crooked. The cable TV needs upgrading to more channels and the WiFi can be weak, especially with a full park. The trees and elevation changes make the park very special along with the rabbits that run around. The park RV store is very well stocked at reasonable prices. We were here for five weeks in a 42 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are a lot of things to do in the Custer, Hill City area of South Dakota, especially if you love the outdoors. Custer State Park was 7 miles from our door and offers hiking trails, water sports, & horseback riding. Crazy Horse and Mt Rushmore Memorials are close by. Wind Cave National Park, and Black Hills NP are close by. The nearby towns are quaint with lots of character. You must drive 35 miles to get to Wal-Mart in Rapid City, SD.

We had a very nice time during our stay at Beaver Lake Campground. The facilities were very clean and tidy. The man who helped us get into our site was very helpful and kind. The kids had lots of fun running around the campground and playing with the bunnies. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were delighted to find this park open toward the end of October, most parks in the area closed around Oct. 1st. We had a very nice pull through site with full hookups including some of the best WiFi I've seen in our travels. The owners were friendly and helpful and it was a delightful stay. Looking around the property. it was obvious that in the summer this place is kid heaven with playgrounds, pools and a water slide. The owner let me know that they keep a portion of the park for the over 55 crowd in the busy season. The only knock was a very poor cable TV system. Some channels did not come in at all and the others had terrible reception. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is a very nice campground with very nice people. I had a back-in site, and was escorted to it and helped with the backing in. As I was setting up, the bunnies were following me around like puppies. All utilities worked as they should including wifi. The bathrooms and showers were spotless and free. It’s a very hilly area, but the individual sites seemed level. The location is good for Mt. Rushmore and a lot of the Black Hills sights, but a bit of a drive to Rapid City. We would definitely stay there again should we return to the area. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Bunnies everywhere, and while they are cute and all, people with dogs or even cats might not think it was all so great. So beware of that...drove my dog crazy! On the upside the grounds and bathroom very clean, sites are large enough for any size RV. Close to many of the area tourist things and you feel safe leaving your rig. AT&T cell works well. I found the check-in staff to be friendly but a little confused; it seemed to take longer than it should. I'm not sure I would stay again just because of the bunnies everywhere was hard to have my dog outside. Footnote: Hate when there is a leash rule for my dog but owners let their dog run free, I have 2 BIG bruises on my legs where their dog came out of nowhere and my dog ran after (on leash) and dragged me down.. the rule is the rule.... We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was not full even during Bike Week. It has nice long pull-throughs and back-ins on gravel with (green) grass yards. Each site has a table and fire ring. The Wi-Fi worked great and we were in a far corner of the park. The managers and employees were all very friendly. AT&T works but Verizon doesn't except at a hot spot by the office. Some sites are satellite friendly. The water and electric are both strong. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground. Very friendly helpful staff. Nice site, gravel and grass and level for the site we had. Good open space with lots of trees. Free roaming rabbits live in the campground! Fun to watch them. This campground has the most wonderful showers I have ever encountered camping! All new showers and bathrooms were spotless. Lots of hot water! This campground is quiet, has nice camp store and prices aren't raised!! Liked staying here but if coming again to see all of Black Hills area, would choose a campground further north. otherwise, this place is top notch! The pool is solar heated, has a big slide for the big kids!! We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I'm glad I was steered away from another CG and came here. Nice surroundings with tree and grass and gravel roads. Great place. My only problem was that my site had a bad CATV signal with snowy channels. Plenty of things to do with kids: water slide, bunnies, pool and playground. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a week to be able to see all the sights in the area. It was convenient to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Needles Hwy., etc. The people here aim to please. We had a pull-through site in the lower area which did not have good Wi-Fi service. We had to go up to the Wi-Fi lounge near the office. There are bathrooms and showers in the lower section of campground. They do a great job of making you feel welcome. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an okay campground. Sites are gravel but certainly not level. Clean restrooms/showers. Beautiful trees. Laundry room was dirty but most of the machines did work. Staff were friendly and helpful, but the three woman in the office as well as the man showing us to our site, were all puffing away on a cigarette. It would best if they smoked when not on duty. There are lots of tame rabbits that were fun to watch. There was a dog running around and the dog had fun chasing the rabbits. It certainly is convenient campground to see Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Truck Camper.
