Came for a few nights and stayed several weeks. Hosts were great. We enjoyed their hospitality at the cafe as well as in the campground. This is a small campground, but very friendly with occasional potlucks. Back off the road and lots of deer in the meadows. Great location between the town of Custer and Custer State Park. We would definitely visit again. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed a couple of weeks. Dog friendly. Park WiFi is STRONG. Verizon is strong. Less than 1 mile to Custer Park Entrance. Gravel spots fairly level. Great spot for exploring Black Hills. About 3 miles from shopping in Custer City. Great cafe on site. Will stay again. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for two weeks and had the time of our lives. The owners are really friendly and the park is nice enough. There is a restaurant on the premises that has out-of-this-world breakfasts, the 7th Cavalry Cafe. There are no trees in the park itself, which is fine for us as we use a satellite dish. The sites are grassy and all have picnic tables. This park is a mile from Custer State Park and close to quite a few other tourist sites, so it worked perfectly for us. We loved this area and will be back, and we will stay at this park again. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small, friendly family owned park. The interior roads and pads are gravel. There are twenty sites, half with full hookups and the remainder electric and water. In addition, there are approximately fifteen tent sites. All sites are open. Our site took considerable effort to level and was difficult to exit. It has Wi-Fi. We were able to get one antenna television station. The bathrooms were okay. It was very quiet at night. Wheels West RV Park is a very basic park. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Wheels West RV for 3 months during the summer of 2011 and had a very enjoyable experience. As a previous reviewer noted, the sites are situated for common patios and common hook-up. We really liked that arrangement since you never have to look at your neighbor's sewer and utility hook-up while enjoying a fine summer day on the patio. The sites are grassy and lots of trees in the surrounding area which provide excellent Deer and Wild Turkey watching. No power issues during our stay, the water quality is excellent and pressure was OK, but on the low side. Bathrooms are clean but small. We did not notice any road noise except during Sturgis Week when the entire Black Hills is noisy by design. As a previous reviewer correctly noted, the hosts are the nicest park owner/operators we have ever met. Great people, very accommodating and they also have a fine cafe on site that is way too convenient. Our palates were very happy but our waistlines suffered a bit. We used this park as a base camp to explore all that the Black Hills have to offer and recommend it to anyone who does not require all the so called "amenities" of a more commercialized RV Park. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We made reservations late (June) for over July 4th and this was the only campground that had space available. The owners are the nicest campground hosts we have ever encountered in our 7 years of RV'ing. The campground has 20 pull-through sites, half with water & electric and half with full hookups. The sites are very close together, you pull in, back side to back side with your neighbor and share the connections for water, electricity and sewer (there are 2 of each). I could have reached out the window and touched my neighbor's slideout. The RV on our door side was also close and we shared the common space. We prefer campgrounds that provide each site it's own space. There are no trees in the sites, but the campground is surrounded by trees. Sites were semi-level gravel with a little bit of grass in-between. Pull-through sites are about 50 feet total making it difficult to park your tow vehicle if you have a longer RV. Restrooms were small but clean. We used this as a base for visiting Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and other area attractions. Free WiFi worked fine, the water pressure was on the low side, but adequate.
