This rate reflects Passport America discount. Would not stay here again. Called for directions to park and were given wrong directions, because of this we almost burned up our brakes. The campground is right behind the convenience store and off US 385, very noisy. This campground caters to off-roaders. Would not recommend this park for big rigs. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a Passport America park, but be sure and tell them when you call. For the money in the area this is a OK park. The sites are along the mountainside behind the gas state/store/restaurant. It is located a little way out of Deadwood city. We stayed here 3 nights and it was a nice stopover. Our site was a long enough pull-through gravel site and had good Wi-Fi. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good overnight stop if travelling on 385. We had a roomy, level, white gravel pull-thru site. The facility was clean and well-organized with a fuel-stop, restaurant and a nicely supplied store. We would stop here again, without question, if on Route 385. The rate quoted is Passport America. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean restrooms and showers in 8 individual compartments. Laundry was nice &2/$2. Staff was friendly and efficient. Mostly back-in sites and few pull-throughs. Utilities work and Wi-Fi is adequate. This park caters to ATVs and motorcycles. The area north of Mt. Rushmore is the center of the Sturgis-Deadwood car and bike culture. If you want nature look south of Mt. Rushmore. Had problems with the restaurant on site. Average at best. Burgers and fried food is the cuisine of the area. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a little ways out of Deadwood but really clean and nicely laid out. Great cafe and gas station connected to the sites. Super nice shower and laundry set-up. Would stay here again! We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate was based on Passport America. Located within 5 miles or so of Deadwood. The campground sits on high land with no danger of creek or river flooding. All sites are gravel and level. Utilities are good. There is no cable; however, we were able it get 3 over the air local channels and Direct TV satellite reception (site #8). Phone reception is spotted (we have Verizon) and there is a Verizon booster in the store. At our site we got about 2 bars. The showers are very nice. Each stall has a private shower, dressing area, and toilet with locks. There were about 5 available showers. A nice convenience store is at the foot of the hill, plus a fantastic restaurant is located on site. They offered a 10% discount on your meal with a receipt from the convenience store. The menu is a wide variety; but don't miss Pete's Chinese selections! We would stay again if in the Deadwood area. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 40' class A in Oct 2013. On the 2nd day we were hit with an unpredicted blizzard that left 48' of snow and 6-7' drifts. The campground owners were wonderful. We could not have found a better place to be "snowed-in." (South Dakota closed all the roads for 2 days while they cleared downed trees and plowed the roads). We were warm and safe and with very helpful owners. The shower/bath room combo is wonderful, and the cleanest we've ever seen. Laundry is great. If I could, I would give this park a 15, instead of a 10! We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a really nice park. There was some road noise as the park overlooks US 385, but the spot was nice. Bathrooms, laundry, and showers were all SUPER clean and nice. There is even a really good restaurant on site (The Pub n Grub) where we had a nice breakfast with good coffee. There is quite a climb to get in or out of the park, but all in all a great place to stay. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America rate made it pleasing. It is about 8 miles from Deadwood. There is absolutely no AT&T cell service, so iPad was also useless. AND the Wi-Fi did not work at the campsite. They made no attempt to fix it. Hardly worked at the office. Otherwise it is a nice campground in a very pleasant setting. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Showers and laundry nicest we've ever encountered. Campsites very clean, well maintained and nicely spaced. Lots of vehicle noise during the day from nearby highway, but quiets down at night. Convenience store with gas next campground. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for a week. What a beautiful place nestled in a valley about 7 miles south of Deadwood South Dakota. Very well taken care of. They have free private showers that are spotless. A very clean laundry room with 3 washers and 3 dryers. We used our Passport America discount and stayed 7 nights for 18.50 per night. We hope to stay here again.

This is an extremely clean little park: nothing fancy, but well kept and staffed with very friendly hosts. There's a well stocked store nearby in addition to a new pub/restaurant. The sites are level (gravel surface), and maintenance is top-notch. On the downside, there's very poor cell service at this is a remote location, and WiFi is an extra $5 per day (which didn't work at all for us even after we paid). For the price, I think I'd go back again but only if the WiFi was free and improved. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.

Not a destination park, but a nice clean little park. Good level gravel spaces with grass, table, and concrete pad. Cleanest bathroom/showers I've seen in a long time. Road noise is minimal but there is some. Would have rated it higher but feel for price paid, wi-fi should have been free, not $4.95 a day. Also you need a dish if you want television; no antenna TV or cable. We would stay here again. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is deceptive. At first glance it looks sparse and unlevel. However, the sites are fairly level and the "feel" is nice. We got the weekly rate. It's a small park, but extremely well kept. The showers, restrooms, and laundromat were immaculate. There is a large store on site. It's convenient to many local attractions. The hookups are convenient and the water pressure is adequate. The only downsides are 1) there is a lot of motorcycle and ATV traffic because there is a gas station on site so the days can be somewhat noisy, and 2) a personal pet peeve... fire pits. We don't like sites with fire pits because the smoke gets into the RV and makes everything stink. The price is reasonable and we would stay there again.

Nice park on 335 5.5 miles south of Deadwood. Very quiet, new, has gas station on site. Really nothing to do here, but the facilities are individual and CLEAN. We camped at Steel Wheel Campground in a Motorhome.
