We stayed at Custer State Park Legion Lake campground with 43ft. Motorhome towing toad. Big rig friendly. 50 amp electric. No water or sewer. Very beautiful setting. Buffalo came up to our motorhome! Lake across street amazing peaceful. Close to Mt. Rushmore! Roads to campground are easy to navigate, but do not go onto Iron Mountain Road, super dangerous and impossible for motorhome, thankfully there are warning signs for that road! We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Motorhome.

They really take care of this park. The sites were nice and had plenty of trees with shade. The restrooms were very clean and the staff was always helpful. There was a trail to the lake you could walk down but would have to drive mostly to the other things you would like to see. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great Park to stay in. Close to Custer, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We were here before the Rally and it was still pretty busy. Campsite was busy and most sites are back in. They have few pull throughs, but they are tight for space for a tow vehicle.
This is our third stay here and we will stay again. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is the best campground in Custer State Park. The only hook-up is electric but if you choose your site carefully, water can be very accessible. There is no dumping or dump station at Stockade. You have to go out of the park or head further into the park to Game Warden area. There are two sites there with water to flush and potable water to fill your fresh water tank. The volunteers at the park are very helpful and friendly and don't interfere. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There are ton of things to do in The Black Hills area. There are several driving loops in the Park which are really nice. Of course, there's Mt Rushmore.

Shady, beautiful park with very spacious sites tucked in unique ways. The camp hosts were nice. There was a trail to Stockade Lake for fishing, but not much more in the way of hiking directly from the campground. There is a play structure in the middle of the park, which was great for the kids. It is at the western edge of the park, so easy access to the town of Custer for food and drinks. I would stay here again, but first I would want to try out some of the other campgrounds for better hiking/biking access. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, clean, quiet, green, lot's of space between sites. We were in site #28. Very good Verizon signal. We had no problem maneuvering our 40' 5er. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Super quiet campground with lots of space between sites. The camper host was wonderful too, coming around nightly to tell us about activities in the amphitheater there. We found it very easy to travel all around the Black Hills from here. It's important to know your site number when you arrive, we did not and had to call the SD state parks number to get it from them (phone and number at restroom) because you don't check in with someone you just go to the site. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Nice wooded site, we camped near the top, 2 slots down from the host. Nice and quiet. The toilet/shower house was very nice. You have to make reservations by calling a toll free number. If you wait until you get to the park you probably won't have cell phone service, but each campground has a phone that you can use to call and make reservations.

The setting was very nice, campsites separated nicely as in most state parks. It was an excellent site to tour the park and surrounding areas from. One drawback is the fact that sites do not have individual sewer, not even a dump station in the park. I would have had to travel to the east side of the park or go into Custer to dump. The reservation system for Wyoming State Parks was not very good, I was assigned a site that barely fit my trailer and I had to block one side up 6" to get the trailer level. There is no reason for a site being out of level by 6" over an 8' span. Next time, if there is a next time, I would check out the sites before phoning for a reservation, and then I would have been able to tell which site I wanted. The only reason I stayed at Stockade North was when I searched the sites on the internet, it appeared to be the only one that could handle trailers the size of mine. After driving through the park, most of the other campsites in the park would have had more suitable spots for my trailer.

A beautiful state park campground. Excellent restrooms and showers. Very friendly camphost. Well separated sites with a table and fire ring. All of the scenic beauty, wildlife, and attractions nearby make this a great choice to use to see Mt. Rushmore and the area. If it had water and sewer hookups, it would be perfect. Almost is now. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Custer State Park - Stockade Lake North Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the best public park I have ever stayed in. It has electricity, a dump and access to water for your holding tank. There is unlimited stuff to do in the park. Game watching is wonderful--buffalo, deer, elk, donkeys. Mt Rushmore, the Badlands and Deadwood are easy day trips. The little town of Custer is delightful. Don't miss this place.

This state park was a big surprise for me. It was huge, and had numerous campgrounds within it. The scenery was beautiful, and the camp hosts very friendly and helpful. When driving from camp to Mt. Rushmore, herds of buffalo were crossing the road and we had a very up-close look at them. Definitely worth checking into. Free showers.

I normally would not give a 10 to a park without water and sewer hookups but this state park is amazing!! It has as many facilities and programs as a national park. We had site 19 which was at the peak of the hill so we had decent Verizon cell phone service. However, due to the trees we were not able to get satellite. The site was level and spacious. There is plenty of room between each site. Keep in mind that you don't "check-in" at a specific location but just go to the site indicated on your reservation. As with the other posts, there is a reservation fee and a $15 entrance fee for our tow car. All the roads are paved and in good shape. Each staff member we had the pleasure of meeting was very helpful and courteous. Be sure to go on the ranger led wild life caravan program. He took us down a road that put us right in the middle of a herd of bison. What an awesome event!! This is a great location for all the fantastic places in the area (i.e. Mr Rushmore, Wind Cave NP, Jewel Cave NM, Devil's Tower, Deadwood, Spearfish Canyon Scenic Drive, all the scenic loop drives in the park, etc). Be sure to attend the nightly illumination program at Mt. Rushmore. It is unforgettable. We would definitely camp here again if we were in the area.
