We stayed the week before and the week during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. This is a great campground run by professional and responsive owners. The sites are spacious easily accessible. We traveled with a 38 foot MH. Showers are clean. Laundry facilities are onsite. WiFI is the best we have encountered. The rate we paid is a composite rate that included Sturgis Rally Week rate. We really loved this place and will return. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Entry off main road is gravel and needs to be graded as it's a bit rough. Large spaces with picnic table and fire pit. Perfect spot for day trips to all the local attractions. Lots of WI-FI spots, but as with most parks, there is heavy use which makes it sometimes impossible to get a connection. No cable TV and we were able to get only local channel. We set up DirectTV satellite. Staff was nice. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Perfect home base RV campground while in the Black Hills. Spacious sites, level gravel, shade trees, ample dog walk areas and areas for the kids to play. We had three rigs; stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the Custer area. Nice laundry, small store gives change and laundry supplies. Very hospitable owners and WorkCamper hosts. Clean and large restrooms/showers. Be prepared for all kinds of weather...was 103 at Checkin in Aug, then 40s at night the rest of our stay with lovely, cleansing thunderstorms at night. Wi-Fi spotty at best, even with multiple repeaters. If tech connection is a must for you, bring own hotspot. After all, you are camping in the rustic, tree packed Black Hills! Will definitely come here again! We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss: Hot Springs Mamouth Dig Site; Badlands, NPS Missle Silo, Wall Drug Store, Crazy Horse Memorial and Custer State Park.

Spent 6 nights here at the end of August, after Sturgis rally, price seemed a little high but comparable to other parks in the area. Setting is beautiful, quiet and rustic. If you want a lot of activities in your RV park don't come here. It was perfect home base for touring the Black Hills, closest park to Custer State Park w/o being in the park itself. ONLY park we saw that was off the highway and NO road noise. Staff was helpful and friendly. NO television reception w/o a dish, no cable, WiFi was good just not fast. Sites were all mostly back in, gravel, level, fire rings and picnic tables. Would definitely stay here again. ATV rental available onsite and staff is helpful and friendly. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Closest park to Custer State Park, 5 minutes to Custer, 10 to Crazy Horse and about 30 minutes to Mt Rushmore. Bring a dish if you want TV.

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.

This is a nice park, close to Custer State Park, Mount Rushmore, Custer, etc. The site was level and clean. We looked like a baby in the long site, probably designed for a big rig. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here eight years ago and liked the park then but it is much improved now. The owners and workers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. There was a good number of workers and because of the rains they were working on the roads and sites every day. the roads and sights are gravel and in excellent shape. The location was great for the attractions we wanted to see. The only reason I gave a nine instead of 10 is the lack of cable TV and sometimes we had some trouble getting on the WiFi. The WiFi was good once you got on. The setting is absolutely beautiful. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eate breakfast at the cafe across the highway. They are a bit slow but the food is great and there is a lot of it.

We loved the fact that the sites here are very large and grassy, similar in size to what we usually find at county/state parks, not commercial RV parks. The campground is quite large, offering full-hookup sites for the biggest rigs, cabins, tents, and a boondocking area. The campground is not fancy, i.e. there's no pool, the road is gravel, etc., but we thought that was fine since we loved our large grassy site. We didn't have any complaints about the dirt road to get into the park. The WiFi worked pretty well (not fast) during the day, but was often barely usable in the evening. Our site was near the top of the hill, far from the highway, and we had no AT&T service and very weak Verizon. Closer to the entrance/office, both AT&T and Verizon worked. We hooked up our booster and were then able to use both at our site. We found enough places to walk our dogs in the campground, and some campers hiked up the big hill behind the campground. As others have mentioned, there are a couple lakes but they are overgrown and the water looks greenish. There was quite a bit of wind every day, so we rarely got to open our awning. We were able to get some mail and packages shipped to us at the campground too which was convenient. The location is great, being right in the middle of many local attractions in all directions. Being set back pretty far from the highway, the campground was very quiet which we appreciated. We saw several other campgrounds in the area that were right along the road and will get more noise. We'd stay here again. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.
