Have to agree with others that this is a very nice park and owners are so friendly. We stayed a week and the 7th night was free. Park is on a hill and not all sites appear to be easy to get into or out of with a "big" rig but the owner does park you. We requested a site where we could get satellite with our Tailgater and we were able to get 2 (110 & 119)of the 3 satellites (129 which provides many of the Dish HD channels we could not get and talking to neighbor neither could they.) Sites are dirt and gravel and our site was level . Wi-Fi and power were good. On one side our view looked out to a hillside and on the other side we looked out on only part of our neighbor's RV and a nice tree filled section of campground that was never used during our stay. The laundry has 4 washers and dryers, racks to hang clothes and 2 folding tables and it and the bathroom were very clean. There is a game room with video games and a small library. If we were in the area again we would stay here. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We missed the entrance to the campground because Big Pine Road is not marked. The campground is located off a side road and there is no directional sign from the highway. Our GPS indicated the entrance was located off the highway.

Beautiful rustic, scenic park set in a picturesque area. Wonderful, friendly, knowledgable owners/staff. Definitely a destination park, close to everything (Mt. Rushmore, Town of Custer, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, etc.). WiFi was exceptional, and we were in the far end of the park. TV was non-existent, but we utilized WiFi to solve that issue. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Mt. Rushmore, Town of Keystone are all nearby. If in Keystone, dining at Ruby's is a must !!!

Big Pine is the kind of place you have in mind when you go camping. Nice people, great sites in the trees and quiet. Some of the sites provide more space and shade than others so you may want to Google Maps before making reservations. Our site had FHU and the connections were all where they were supposed to be. Firewood was $4 per bundle and they delivered. Nice laundry facility, $2.00 to wash and $.75 to dry for 30 minutes. Convenient to Custer, Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore. A great price for a great place. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There are two breweries and three wineries in the area that are worth visiting.

Our campsite was fabulous! Far enough from other tents to be private and very quiet. Beautiful view into the back woods. Shower houses and restrooms were very clean with plenty of hot water. Laundry services were great and very cheap. Would definitely stay here again. Gone 12 days and this was the best place we stayed. Wish they were all like this one! Great job to the couple who run this facility!!!!! We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

Close of all sorts of attractions: Custer State Park, Crazy Horse, Mt. Rushmore, etc. Used this as our base to branch out and explore the SD area. We were given a map of the area with great roads to explore.

In a pine forest with good shade and ample space between sites. Staff friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. They will even deliver firewood to your site. Didn't use bathhouse but clean. Laundry room was clean, reasonably priced and user friendly. Verizon wireless worked well. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend to others. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Excellent location for visiting Black Hills, Custer state park, Mt Rushmore & Wind Cave NP.

Beautiful wooded campground. We liked it the moment we stepped into the office. Staff very friendly and helpful. Price reasonable. Laundry clean and reasonable. Would definitely stay again if the opportunity arises. Some sites are somewhat small, but the staff makes every effort to match units with sites. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to all the Back Hills attractions.

We stayed here on our annual vacation for 12 nights. Our spot was perfect! We were at the top of the park and we looked right out on a beautiful green meadow. At night we could sit in our lounge chairs and watch the sunset, star gaze and just relax in the QUIET! The owners were so very helpful, took us right to our spot, helped us back in and sold us firewood. We had forgotten our little hatchet for cutting kindling, so the owner brought us up kindling for the whole stay at no additional charge. The laundry room had very good washers & dryers too. This place was close to everything and so easy to get in and out of. If we ever go to South Dakota again, we won't think twice about staying here. The owners are superb! We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We hauled our Harley in our toy hauler and rode to every scenic attraction available on the west side of South Dakota. Very centrally located for the tourist and the town of Custer in minutes away.

This campground is a gem! Clean, shaded with beautiful Ponderosa pines, and a helpful staff. Huge sites and very quiet. On the edge of the tourist area but within easy driving to everything in the area. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I can be a really picky camper, and I could find nothing wrong with anything during our 2 night stay! We had a wonderful quiet stay. The restrooms were immaculate. The owner helped me park, and made sure I was level and happy. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is all I hoped for when I made the reservation. The owners are actively involved on site. I was escorted to my site and he stayed there until I was level. They delivered firewood to my site at a very reasonable price. The sites are spacious and nestled under hundreds of Ponderosa pines. The park is convenient to the town of Custer, and all the other main attractions in the Black Hills. The Wi-Fi is as good as we have experienced anywhere, and the Verizon signal is excellent. The beautiful pines interfere with satellite unless you have a portable system. I definitely recommend this park. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful campground and I would definitely stay here again. What I liked the most about this place was that it was surrounded by forest (and was in the forest itself) so I felt like we were out in the wilderness. With other local campgrounds, you can see houses, stores, etc. from your campsite. The owners were incredibly friendly and escort you to your site. The campground was clean, quiet, and safe. The restrooms were immaculate and often smelled like they were cleaned a few minutes ago. Laundry room was OK, but it served our needs. Custer is a good, central location to explore the Black Hills. This campground is only about a mile west of town, so you have the wilderness feel but are still close to everything. I have a few criticisms (but don't let them keep you from staying at this great park) - the internet was nonexistent ever though our site was about 15 feet from a wifi hotspot. The laundry and recreation room are a long hike from most of the camping areas. And the roads get sloppy when it rains so you get mud on your vehicles (that said, I think most of the campgrounds in the area have dirt roads, so not like you have a choice.) We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.

Our family of two adults and two children ages 13 and 16 loved this campground for its location and "big pines". The campground is just two minutes west of Custer and 15 minutes to Rushmore. The campground sites are set in a gradually climbing hill and forest of pines with plenty of shade. We stayed 3 nights. Our site #54 was at the top of the hill with plenty of room. The site was level with easy hook-ups. The host couple are great. We called them to let them know we were running late and they waited for us past their closing. They escorted us to our site and helped us back in. The campground backs up to an open forest and felt like a real rustic get-away. The campground was clean and well maintained. Looking forward to returning some day. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the nicer campgrounds we've stayed in. Large sites, shaded by tall pines. Lots of grass. The owners are friendly and helpful. One evening there was a hail storm and he was out right away checking for damage and fixing a small washout in the road. The park is located close to many attractions in the area. There is also a mobile RV repair and doggy daycare close by. I would stay again. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.

Really enjoyed our time here. Good location to visit the area sites. Owners are friendly and helpful. Escorted to site and helped get situated. This is a campground in the pine forest, not a resort. Good gravel roads and sites. Full hookups and best Wi-Fi we've found. Located just out of Custer, nice and quiet, easy to relax. Would definitely recommend this campground. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.
