Very well maintained campground. Facilities are old and very clean. Wi-Fi is very fast but speed fluctuates greatly. We came here because of the strong Wi-Fi connection and was not disappointed. The sites are gravel and dirt and fairly level. Laundry room has two washers and two dryers. Each wash load costs $1.75 and only cold water wash is available. Dryer costs $1.50 a load and ran long enough to dry both loads of my laundry. We will definitely come back here again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Made reservation was told the spot would allow us to unhook our ATV trailer and pull alongside with our pick up camper. upon arrival we were one hour early our mistake still on Iowa time. Forgive me. We were an hour early. They were Very rude, pointing out we were too early. Went to Custer, came back and hour later, our site was not large enough for us to pull beside. when that was pointed out to the office staff they were very quick and rude saying we were being difficult and perhaps we should just have our money refunded. We only expected what they said they had available but instead somehow we were the bad guys do not recommend the customer service at that campground don't go would not go back. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Truck Camper.

A beautiful gulch setting, a pond, semi secluded, charming cabins and facilities that don't distract from the Wild West setting, but enhance it.

Large RV sites, friendly staff, clean manicured sites and grounds, bathrooms and laundry (we were unable to use though, due to a current repainting).

The only reason we didn't give them 4 stars was lack of food and supplies for such a secluded place and the lack of Internet or cable.

We were only there one night, but had we had more time, we would've definately been happy to stay a good long time, enjoying the wonderful views and local sites. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The place is very crude. First the sign on the highway is set back so that if you come from Custer, you're coming down a hill and on it before you know it. There is no advance sign advising that the entrance is near. There are no security lights AT ALL in the park. It's pitch dark. When they mow, they have no concern that the cuttings are blown up on your chairs and rug. This place appears to be some amateur's idea of "hey, let's put a campground on that worthless piece of ground". There are surely better spots near Custer. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was very clean, quiet and had nice spacious camping sites. Campground was surrounded by trees, which we enjoy. It was very close to Custer State Park, close to Crazy Horse Memorial, Mount Rushmore and many other attractions in the area. The town of Custer is only about 3 miles, so very convenient if one wanted to go shopping or pick up a few items at the grocery store. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. We were here over Labor Day weekend and plan on going back the middle of Oct. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed in. The site were large and plenty long for our 34 ft 5th wheel and truck. The electric was solid, water pressure a little low. The Wi-Fi was great--fast and reliable. The office staff was friendly. The campground is very quiet and attractive. It is convenient to Custer State Park and to the town of Custer. We had good Dish TV and excellent Verizon broadband, as well. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location. It was centrally located to all of the area attractions such as Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, cities of Custer and Hill City, etc. Sites are clean, level and well-spaced. Wifi strength was excellent. Rest room and laundry facilities were very clean. We selected this campground because they had rental cars onsite. It wasn't a luxury car - older minivan with 70,000 miles on it, but it ran well and fit the bill. There are excellent ATV trails right from the property. However, they have just a few ATVs available onsite but they were booked for all the days we wanted to used them. If ATV riding is a priority for you, I would suggested making a reservation prior to arriving. Only downside is there wasn't a pool. Overall, it was a great visit! We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a fabulous stay at this fantastic campsite. Rate reflects a weeks stay but with a holiday weekend. One of the most spacious sites we have ever had, we were in the "pond" area which was perfect, so quiet with lovely view across the valley. Very friendly helpful staff. Only half mile to State Park and a couple of miles into the neat town of Custer. Mount Rushmore, Needles Highway and The Iron Road all easy distance. Grass area with picnic and fire pit. Tarmac roads and gravel sites. No cable but excellent wifi strong enough bandwidth for 3 devices, probably the best wifi we have ever had. We certainly recommend. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall we were happy with this campground. Spacious sites with room for big RV's, and plenty of room between sites. Far enough away from Hwy16A that there was no traffic noise. My only issues were relatively minor. The only restrooms they have are closed for 1-1/2 hours for cleaning. That is an excessive amount of time to clean a total of 4 shower stalls and 8 toilets. My other gripe was with the gal at the check-in desk. She does not like anything out of the ordinary. We showed up early (before check in time) and she was pretty rude to us about it. We explained that we understood we were early, and weren't expecting to be able to pull into our site if it wasn't ready. It just took us less time than expected to get there. Eventually she calmed down. I'm sure early arrivals aren't that unusual, and more courtesy could be shown to paying customers. Aside from those couple of things, it was a good stay. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is only minutes out of Custer, a cute, little Western town, and 20 minutes from Mt. Rushmore. The access road was a long, dusty ride. The sites were on a gravel strip with grass between. We stayed in a large, level, back-in site with full hook-ups. We enjoyed the songbirds and the yellow-bellied marmots that live around the cabins. The ponds, however, were green and stagnant, surrounded by tall buggy grass and cat tails. We would probably pick a less rustic place is ever visiting again. We stayed 2 nights. Our rig is 43'. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautifully setting, nestled in the valley surrounded by pines and Aspen trees. Centrally located to Custer State Park and all the Black Hills venues. Access roads and sites are crushed gravel and well maintained. Site is level with plenty of space and grass between sites. Would have been a 10 rating, but could not get Wi-Fi at my site (#18 near the back). Internet was available nearer to the club house. Rate reflects discount for 7 day stay.

This is our second stay at this campground. If you want to be near Custer State Park, this is the campground for you. If you want to be closer to Mt. Rushmore, then you should choose a campground in Hill City, South Dakota. We had site #50 which is a satellite friendly back in. The sites are a nice size with grassy areas in between sites. The campground is quiet at night and people seem respectful of each other. The internet was great with good signal from several towers. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The sites were gravel and well maintained. The office staff was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our 6 night stay here and would return again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have come here 2 years in a row because we loved it so much. It is a quiet, secluded park that is very well located. Our site is very large and level with lots of grass. There are walking trails behind the park and they even rent ATVs here to drive into the State Park. Everyone is friendly and efficient. I do not use the public restrooms so I cannot comment on them. I see that there are other reviews which mention the dusty road. Custer is a rural area and the roads will be gravel. It is a very well maintained road with no pot holes. Definitely a great place to stay while visiting the Black Hills. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

We thoroughly enjoyed this park. Our site was at the back, bordered by National Forest Service property. It was peaceful and quiet - no road noise whatsoever. We had plenty of shade. The free Wi-Fi was marginal at best, but our Mi-Fi pulled in a strong signal. The laundry was clean, but limited to cold water only. Yes, it was dusty due to the dirt roads, but we stayed for 10 days and would definitely return. It was a peaceful haven between day trips exploring nearby Custer State Park and other local attractions. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Worked very well for us to explore the Southern Hills. It was relatively close to Custer State Park which gave us a short drive to the Buffalo Roundup. Very quiet with large sites. We would stay here again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
