32 Parks near Deadwood, South Dakota
May 2011 - $19.00
We paid $9.50 which was 1/2 off with the Golden Age Pass. Pets are an additional $2 each. We had a nice long, secluded site. It was a tricky back-in as there are huge trees bordering each site. Site was not very level side to side. This is a Forest Service Campground located about 13 miles south of Deadwood, SD on US 385. Dry camping, potable water available at non-threaded spigots. Vault toilets. Camphost and us were only people present during our mid-week camping. We would camp here again. - Schooner50

There is a small man made lake with a beach. The sites are large with a fire ring and picnic table. This is primitive camping so make sure you have your water and supplies before heading out. - zookeeper

Stayed for two nights. Although we were close to the road, we didn't hear it at all. Our site had a concrete slab with it's own trash can. Didn't eat at the resturant but the little store had a good peanutbutter rice krispy. Chose this because of afternoon shade from the hill. Might want to unhook before going over Strawberry HIll from Deadwood. - pamandtina

We paid $34 for three nights and the full rate of $38 for two nights, when it was "Jeep Camp" week and there were no discounts. This park sits behind a convenience store, gas station, and restaurant (food was fair). There is one long row of back-in sites of varying length and some pull-throughs parallel to the road in front of the back-ins. The road and sites are fine gravel with nice grass between the sites, which are nicely spaced apart. The road was actually more dirt than gravel, leading to a lot of dust when all the jeeps were driving through. A steep pine tree-covered hill behind the park makes for a nice setting. Rest rooms/showers consist of very nice large, private rooms with shower, sink and toilet. We could not get Verizon cell/data service at our site, but it did work at the store, where there was a booster. Park Wi Fi usually worked the first few days, but after the park was full service was slow or non-existent. There is no cable TV, and the trees and hill blocked our DirecTV reception. Four channels were available over-the-air. - Ray Z

Great family run RV park with pub and fuel/convenience store. Great pull-through site. Only problem was that I didn't expect that it was at 5200 plus feet elevation. Stayed for two nights, but had all the comforts of home. Very clean. Close to Deadwood and Sturgis. Was off season. - Yvonne- 1324_

Easy access for all rigs off 385 about 6 miles from Deadwood. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The park is very clean with long, level concrete pads full hookup. Also, there were several small cabins. The only reason for not 10 stars is there was no cable,and WiFi is available only at the office. Verizon phone service is spotty. Able to get several channels off antenna though. Fees must be paid by cash or check to keep cost down. - JCMOHO
May 2013 - $35.00
The sites are nice, paved and level, and the water, electric and sewer, good, but the campground is right on a busy highway. If you like quiet, you won't find it here. Be warned, they do not accept any credit cards, and they don't tell you that fact until it is time to leave and pay. We had no Verizon signal. The restrooms and showers, if they exist, were not pointed out and no info on the locale was given. We won't stay here again. - starwind
Jul 2011 - $35.00
Great place. Very friendly staff. Some camping necessities (TP, bottled water, soda, firewood, etc.) available on the honor system. Would definitely stay there again & recommend to a friend. Wi-Fi available for $4.95/day. They also offer longer contracts. Laundromat, playground, game room available at adjoining campground. Didn't give it a 10 only because the shade trees need to grow a little more. - 08Passport
Jul 2016 - $26.00
Stayed for a month. Given the amenities or lack of, it was very pricey $800.00 . We stayed in the upper end of the park and the water pressure was terrible. Had to fill our holding tank to get water. The park is using a standard house well jet pump to supply water to approximately 2o uphill sites. The weeds and grass are overgrown in all the RV and tent sites. There is no shade in the upper sites. WiFi is spotty at best, and very difficult to get satellite TV due to being in the gulch and trees on the hillside. Overall maintenance is seriously lacking. Sites are small and very cramped. Wouldn't stay at the park again. - road gypsy

Great location for visiting casinos, also driving to Mt Rushmore and Devil's Tower.
Easy access to Mickelson 109 mile trail at bottom of hill from RV park. Fine walking dogs. Clean park with garbage pickup at site. - rvreviews
Jul 2016 - $45.00
This RV park is disgusting. It infuriates me when I use a rating system from a very reputable camping guide that rated this park a 9.5, only to find that this park is one of the worst we have ever stayed at.
1. The cost is very high.
2. The people operating this park are inept. The woman who checked us in doesn't know a thing about RVs. I called early that morning and told her THREE times that my motorcoach was 35 feet long and that we had a tow vehicle. She said she had a 40 ft back-in site for us. When we arrived the site couldn't accommodate us. It was way too small. She gave us another site and told us it was 61 feet long. It wasn't true. It was just long enough. We barely fit.
3. The park is grossly overcrowded. The sites are so close together you can barely get your pop-outs to go out. If you have a Class A, do not stay here unless they confirm they have a pull-through site for you. You will not fit here.
4. The bathrooms and showers are filthy. There is mold/mildew everywhere. It can be cleaned as I scraped it with my fingernail and it came off. They don't clean the restrooms. There was hair all over the shower and tiles are broken. Don't shower here.
5. The people staying here in this park are loud, disruptive, and drunk. There is no quiet time. We saw people standing on the roofs of their travel trailer drinking. It is not family friendly. The tenants here drive their ATVs all night long.
6. The trash dumpsters are not emptied regularly. The trash is overflowing here. We couldn't take our trash out. Gross.
7. There is no grocery store in Deadwood. Bring groceries with you or plan to drive to Lead, SD for food.
8. There is no Wi-Fi. There is a hotel across the street that the RV park uses their password to use their Wi-Fi. It doesn't work. No cable and no television stations can be received here.
We would never stay here again. Never. And I wish we could get our money back. We paid almost $100 for 2 nights to stay in a dump. - Perfection expected

The park was pretty empty of RV's, although there were a number of tent campers prior to the Sturgis rally. Sites were back-in and roomy enough but the parking area for tow vehicles is across a road, which was very muddy after rain and remained that way for the 3 days we stayed. There is no cable tv but we were able to get 4 channels over the air. WiFi was problematic (Hughesnet) which worked okay in the early morning but disconnected often at night (clouds?). (The manager warned us in advance that this could be the case.) Sites with WiFi were close to the road and were very noisy due to the large number of motorcycles traveling to the rally. Restrooms and showers were very clean but we'll look for another place to stay, next time we're in the area. - blokeman

i think this park is a well kept secret! The reason I think that.....it is empty and the other parks Around here are all full. It is centrally located between Deadwood, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse.
It has a restaurant/bar at the entrance. Below that is the campground. You are off the main road and are looking at trees. It is rather charming. When you enter there is some equipment that makes it looks a bit trashy....but you go beyond that and it is lovely.
The other campgrounds that we saw while driving where in an campground without trees and close together. I like this campground. We stayed four night. - Brandl

We stayed here the week before Sturgis Bike Week. The campground was only 1/3 to 1/2 full for the 5 days we were here. This campground was very quiet even though it is located right beside highway SD 385. The showers and bathrooms were very clean. The laundry area was clean and the machines worked well for us. The Wi-Fi worked very good from our campsite. The landscaping was neat and the grass was kept cut. Some of the tent sites had a shelter and electric available at the site. There seemed to be plenty of room between each site and the roadway within the campground. The roadway is dirt and gravel with no sharp bends for even the longest of rigs. There is a restaurant/saloon combined with the campground office. They closed by 10:00 on the weekends and were closed when we arrived back at the campground at 9:30 on Monday night. Hence no loud music or other distractions at night. If you are in the area to go 4x4 wheeling or quad/ side by side, trail riding in the National Forest,you can do so right from the campground. Quads never need to even go on the road to access the trails & Jeeps or other 4x4 road legal vehicles can do so with out ever going off the dirt roads to access some minor or difficult trails. There is a gas station about 1/4 mile south of the campground that has a convenience store/gas/& air. We stayed here in a tent, but would have no problem bringing our motor home here if were ever in the area again. We would definitely stay here again. - dsbikedan

This was worst park I have ever stayed at. Packed us in right up against other campers. Spots available but was told they would be occupied later that night. Next morning the spots sat empty as we were rubbing elbows with our neighbors.
No picnic tables or grills/firebird. No room to move!! Dog park was over grown and nasty. Could not wait to leave. - JackieW662

This was our first experience in a KOA Cabin and we enjoyed the stay. The cabin was clean with free wifi and cable tv. The restroom was clean but the shower head was rather low. Free coffee was a nice touch and the clerk allowed me to put a frozen cooler pack in the freezer. The clerk was very nice and helpful, but he had severe problems using the computer software in order for us to make payment. I would have to leave it with him and check back while he worked on it. It was a little frustrating, but his friendly attitude made up for it. - sandrag

Owners are office staff and very helpful. Park is 2+ miles from town but they offer a free shuttle bus every 2 hours. Entrance to the park is challenging as you must make a hard right turn in and up a very steep hill. Sites are level but stark and VERY close together. Showers/restrooms are very clean and tidy. - fivertug

Stayed here for a month. There is nothing fancy, and it only has electric and water, with a dump station. Essentially it is a parking lot which was designed for the rodeo grounds events. Sites are close, with gravel pads and a grassy strip next to them. Electric is on the wrong side and the water is shared between sites with separate hose bibs. Staff are very friendly and helpful and do their best to keep the grounds up. Bathrooms and showers were super clean.
Very convenient to downtown Deadwood and casinos. Trolley picks up at the museum next door. This is definitely not a five star campground and somewhat pricey given the lack of amenities, but it met our needs for the month and we would come back. - road gypsy
Sep 2014 - $40.00
This "campground" is a parking lot beside the city road-work depot, with water, electric, and the world's brightest spotlights directly over your rig. The main quality is that the location is an easy walk to town if you don't have a second vehicle. The showers were also new, but the niceness of them pales after the dreariness of the lot. - Frayedshoestrings
Sep 2012 - $35.00
Nice RV Park, inside the City of Deadwood. I liked the free (for folks that stay here) shuttle to and from the campsite to downtown. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Cleanest bathrooms and showers I've seen at a campground with no quarters needed for the showers. Nice and helpful staff. For the price you can't go wrong. - cablemn
Jun 2016 - $27.00
There is no cell service (Verizon) even with the booster located at the office. The Wi-Fi is spotty to non-existent and we usually tried logging on early in the morning before the rest of the campground got up. The satellite reception was acceptable after some re-positioning of the dish. There is a lot of road noise as the campground sits right next to Hwy 385. The owners and the staff were fantastic and the park is run very well. The park appearance is OK but the sites are close together and the park is a little tight. - cwousa

We really enjoyed our stay here. Just one night while heading to Mount Rushmore. A good little gift shop and you can pay to catch fish that they fry up for you to eat. The only complaint was the showers. They set the temperature and it was just barely warm. No changing that. Not a happy shower as too cold. But would stay again for atmosphere. - kiwitravelers
Jun 2014 - $32.00
This is an older facility, but clean and very helpful people. The owners are on site everyday and very helpful with information on the local area. Most sites are back-in with plenty of room and the staff/owner will help with all parking. The sites are level with hook ups to the rear so you may need additional hoses. There is no AT&T phone service and if the campground is full the WiFi can be very busy. The cafe has great food, and the fish deal is the best, catching your own fish at their pond and then having it cooked right on site or you can take the fish back to your site and cook. The small store is very well stocked with RV needs because the owners are also RVers. - Al and Anne-Marie

Nice campground. Lots of tent space. - Huffgary
Aug 2015 - $18.00
The Passport Directory says this campground has septic (full hookup). They don't. They have a dump station. Directory says Wifi. Works only if you go to office area. Verizon jetpack doesn't work either. Forget cell phone service. You might be able to reach someone but then it is either so broken up you can't understand them or the call is dropped. Does have a pretty creek running through it. Washers are $2.50/dryers $2.00. A little high compared to most campgrounds. We're full time RVers so we see campgrounds all over the U.S. I was very disappointed with the amenities. - BPowell

This is a pretty park outside of Deadwood about 6 miles. Wi-Fi was a little sketchy but we were able to make it work. Staff very friendly. Sites were level and green grass between sites. A little close to your neighbors, but doable. Our rig is 37' long. - M LaFarge
Jul 2016 - $59.00
In a 4000 mile trip this is the best RV park we stayed in. Spacious, level concrete sites. Paved roads. Beautiful landscaping and views. Even wifi is good as is cable and other utilities. This place was designed and built properly. Nice store too. - padre

Just great! The store, the pool, the sites, the paved roads, the location. Everything about this campground is phenomenal. - Cake on the beach

This was about the 4th time we stayed here for at least an overnight stop. This is really a luxury, high end, campground with lots of amenities. All sites have concrete pads and multiple sewer hookups. The park is easy to navigate even with a big rig. They have added lines for a pickleball court on one end of the tennis court and there is a portable net. We usually hit tennis balls when we stop here, and we were surprised and disappointed about the sorry shape of the tennis net because otherwise this is such a high class operation. - Thor MC
