54 RV Parks near Hermosa, South Dakota
May 2017 - $16.00
Stayed 5 nights, 3 with PA for $16 and 2 at regular rate of $32. The sites are nice and long and level. There is a table and patio at each site. All sites are newly graveled - nice when it is raining, no mud. The restrooms are awesome. Very, very clean with nice sized commode and shower stalls. Laundry room has two washers and 2 dryers, table for folding, and sofa for sitting. The owners purchased the park in December 2016. They are very nice and fun to talk with, and quick to help with any problems. They have plans to add to and update the laundry room. The park is about 45 minutes from Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Custer SP and many other attractions. It is a great park to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. I don't remember our site number but any of them would accommodate big rigs. We camped in a 27 ft travel trailer. - mrcats

This is the perfect park for our needs. Nice long gravel pull throughs, 50-amp full-hookups. The PA rate is good for 3 nights, great value. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The park is very open and spacious. The roads are easy to navigate. This is a good base for exploring the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore. - wntrtxn

Convenient location to explore area. Level gravel sites, adequate room in between and plenty big enough to enter and exit easily. Didn't use the restrooms but checked them out and they were spotless. Landscaping needs work but it's tough to do without rain. This didn't affect our stay, of course, but it would improve the visual appeal. Owner was very nice and accommodating by phone....did not meet him in person. Over-air TV worked well as did Verizon hotspot. Would definitely stay again. - all4pets

Very friendly on the phone, very friendly office staff at check in. Park is in a great location for sightseeing. New campground and alot of detail has gone into this park. Construction still going on for new facilities. Easy on/off the highway, great signage (our GPS was confused though). We had a standard sized lot, gravel, no shade. Fire ring and picnic table on our site. Cable offered, and fantastic hispeed internet. Laundry facilities absolutely spotless. - TXTread

we stayed here for 2 nights touring Custer State Park and surroundings. this is an excellent campground right off the highway, very clean, well maintained CG, friendly owners - very accommodating, restrooms are clean, free showers, we bought propane gas for MH at a very reasonable price - price reflects Passport America discount - will most definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone passing through the area. - Banditoman60

This is a decent park at the Passport America 50% discount but I would have rated it lower if I had to pay the full $60/nt for one of their "Super Sites". We enjoyed the cable TV and very good wi-fi. There were few campers here when we visited and the wi-fi speed was very good and their networks was reliable with zero dropped connections. Our Super Site provided ample room for both our 43 ft coach and our tow car. They are currently expanding to add a large number of new sites. - Ron_H

For full disclosure, we have been members here since the early 90s. We no longer live in the area, and haven't been here in over a year. This is the park that we measure all other parks by - it is a true RESORT, with all the amenities that implies. The sites are large (most are double wide concrete pads) with a sizeable grassy area between - it does not feel crowded, even when the park is full. We came to this area this trip BECAUSE of Hart Ranch. Love this place! - DreamCaptn

This is a huge park with over 400 parking pads, all neatly laid out in rows and blocks. Pad size was adequate. They warn you not to hang your trailer over the edge of the pad because it interferes with the mowing. Lots of foot and vehicle traffic. Lots of amenities. Water pressure was good. I was told the WIFI had been hit by lightening and they were waiting for a part. I left five days after it went down and it was still not working properly. - CO Traveler

This is a members only campground (gatehouse with security) - however if they are not full they do allow non-members to stay there. Unfortunately they only allow for a two night stay. We would say if you have the opportunity to stay here you should. Everyone was incredibly nice and we mean everyone. The campground has some unique history to it and they even come around and give you a welcome package the first morning. Now we know it's their opportunity to pass on some sales information; however, there is no sales pitch other than to hand you the info with the free coffee cup, pen, etc.
They have a huge pool that is very clean and well maintained along with hot tubs, pickleball courts, their own gas station (with a reasonable price), camp store, etc. It is easy to get to and very close to Mt. Rushmore (20 minutes) and a number of other places. We actually visited Deadwood after we left Mt. Rushmore.
We really loved this place and if we lived closer we probably would have joined. Their quiet time is actually quiet, the bathrooms/showers are the best we've EVER been in. There were three full bathrooms inside the bathhouse - meaning in addition to the normal sinks and bathroom stalls there were also three private bathrooms. You close the door and have a vanity, toilet and sink - they even had complimentary shampoo and cream rinse on the sink. Each bathhouse was like this. Everyone picked up after their pets and the park was incredibly clean. Even the WiFi worked - although it was slow and could be spotty. - Rjjjbrown

My family and I camped here for two nights, this is a very nice park for tent camping or small campers/motor homes. I can see where larger vehicles would have troubles, not because of the park, but due to the roads coming in, beautiful drive, but probably not in a large vehicle. The staff was very friendly, and we really enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast. The facilities were all clean, and the scenery is fantastic. If you are vacationing in this area, I would highly recommend this park. - lmhortec

We camped here from Friday, August 30, 2013 to Monday, September 2, 2013 with our son and his family. The campground is quiet, clean, and peaceful. We enjoyed swimming in the clean, in-ground pool (although if it were covered at night with a solar cover, that would have helped the VERY cold temp a lot), mini-golf, endless hiking opportunities, and a campfire each night. The scenery can't be beat! Camp store has limited supplies, swimming accessories, ice, firewood, souvenirs, and lots of t-shirts for sale. There is a small deli attached for an 'on-the-go' meal. We enjoyed this camping experience very much. We camped here in a motorhome and our son has a 5th Wheel. Note: The $16 per night camping fee was military discount. - TrixieBelle559

We camped in our 16' travel trailer for two nights. We had asked for a shady spot since there was a heat wave but when we arrived we found we were exposed to the sun most of the day. We were parked up against a hill with tent campers across from us along a creek. The air was full of mosquitoes both early morning and evenings. While the staff was friendly and helpful, the bathroom and shower facilities were primitive, well worn and dirty. In addition, the park had only three showers in the single bathroom facilities for each sex, not nearly enough with all the people staying at the camp. In addition, instead of having a separate laundry, two washers and dryers were in each of the bathrooms, two for the women's and two for the men. With the washers and dryers running, and the heat generated, the bathrooms were almost unusable. We would NOT stay at this RV park again. - User2057

Probably the finest state park in the country. Sites were spacious with electric hook-up only. Sites were paved, but slightly unlevel. Campground borders are fenced to keep Buffalo out, but nice walking paths that connect to Game Lodge, Visitor's Center, and General Store. - americanrascal

The company running Custer State Park campsites (and lodging - I believe it's all the same), do a great job. FYI: the campgrounds at Custer are the only SD state park campsites you can reserve 1 year in advance. The sooner the better if you plan to go! Although, we were so surprised to see empty sites through our 4th of July stay this year. We simply couldn't figure out why that was.
Look below for the great reviewer that gives tips on best sites. I agree: those are the good ones! However, all sites are really quite decent and hard to imagine being disappointed.
Benefits to Game Lodge is it's location at the Eastern entrance to Park. Wildlife loop right there, a 2 mile paved trail from park to Game Lodge store, visitor center.
This campground also has the dump station if you need it. There are not mosquitoes but a few biting flies when we were here. We found Picardin insect spray to be effective.
Laundry convenient, bath building are awesome, well lit, clean, good water and pressure.
Between the great campground and the appeal of Custer State Park, this is a great destination!!! Any Custer campground is nice so take your pick and just go! - MNJessieJ

This was an excellent state park. Location of the Game Lodge was convenient to Mt. Rushmore. We saw many wildlife throughout the park (Buffalo right in our campground!) So we did not see the need to pay money to go on the Wildlife loop. Sites were spacious and neighbors were friendly. There was no water nearby, which we did not notice until after we had unhooked. Ugh! Rookie mistake. Laundry facilities were very convenient and the bath house was clean and well maintained. - Ladybuggfloyd

Staff we're very pleasant and helpful advising that the only sites available were close to the highway when I called to reserve. We chose to stay anyway and are very glad we did. Highway noise was barely an issue and the sites were spacious with lots of shade. Wi-Fi was very good with only a little drop out in the morning. They also have a $2 all you can eat pancake breakfast as well as other options on site. - Slownsy - Marmor

Small sites and they were not level but we made it work. Close to Mount Rushmore which was nice. Wooded sites were something we enjoyed. We would stay here again. - Lillylil

Nice campground, lots of tall pine trees. Makes it a little tight driving to the camp site but not bad. Campsite is gravel and has picnic table and fire ring. Site was almost level but had strange hook ups. Water and power on one side, sewer on the other side. Gave it a 8 would have been a 9 with cable. We were able to pull in many air TV stations. Wi-Fi was strong at our site (E-7). Did not check out pool, showers or laundry. Office staff was friendly and had a small but good selection of gifts and basic food supplies. Would stay here again. - topperdan

I want to say first of all that the staff here is absolutely fantastic! They were exceptionally friendly, and were very helpful when it came to setting up and asking for things to do in the area.
There were some things about the camp that could be improved on. The site we were on wasn't level. It was a gravel site, and I didn't bring any leveling boards. That could be a novice camper mistake, but I haven't had that issue elsewhere. The biggest problem I had was the water pressure. The site we were on, it did have full hook-ups, but I ended up filling my onboard water tank to have adequate pressure. We stayed four nights, and my first two showers were with drizzling water. Also, they do advertise free WiFi, but I was unable to connect throughout the duration. Finally, the sites are very close together, so if you're looking for privacy, and they have a high occupancy, you won't get it.
The campsite was clean and well kept. They were in the middle of doing some site maintenance, which isn't a big deal to me because we were exploring a lot of tourist attractions and not staying on property all day. They also had a complimentary cup of coffee for us each morning at the cafe, which was very nice.
Again, the staff was very friendly, and they helped make the trip enjoyable. Their attitudes helped level out some of the problems I felt were at the site.
Oh, and the wolves were kind of neat, hearing them howl was expected, so it wasn't annoying at all. The owner was extremely pet friendly too! - joshnichols84

Don't follow GPS to navigate to get there. We drove the 16A road south of Mt. Rushmore and I do not advise you to drive this road in an RV. The road is extremely curvy and there are a few really narrow and short tunnels to navigate through. A portion of the road is very tight in width and the shoulder is a few inches drop so quite tough in a 30' motorhome to navigate through. There are a few RV sites with hookups but navigating to park in them is tight and tricky. The owner guided me and I ended up smashing my cargo bay door to my propane and now it is really difficult to open the door. The wolves were nice to see and the campground is nestled away in a valley surrounded by the Black Hills. - jmad1013

This park is very convenient to Custer State Park and the Needles Highway. It has a few RV full hook-up sites with 30amp. They also have cabins and tent sites and a very nice pavilion. The grounds are beautiful. The camp name is derived from the pair of wolves who make their fenced-off home here. The owner/managers are very nice and helpful. For 4th of July they had a BBQ for all that was great fun. - terriesm

Phoned ahead and was told that nobody would be available between noon and 4pm so just pick a site and register after. Did that, then an elderly man walked up with an attitude, upset I hadn't stopped at the office. He threatened me with physical violence, then phoned the police. They must know him because they didn't show up. We hooked the toad back up and left. By far, the most bizarre, irrational behaviour I've seen in park staff in over 20 years of RV travel.
Not many parks open that time of year, maybe these "park hosts" were hoping to not have guests, but then just be closed. Park seemed good, but owners need to know how their hosts are treating potential guests. - Alcatrazmatt

Campground staff was very nice. We had 2 units traveling together and was able to get a site that shared a picnic pavilion. Was nice to have that shared space. - msvacation

People were nice. The park needs a little updating. The sites are very close together. Maneuvering a motorhome proved to be difficult. - Familyfulltimerv

Small campground in Black Hills National Forest. Power at sites with water at the bath house. Tent campground across the street. Nice walking trail and creek running along the back side of the campground. Deer like to bed down in the field nearby at night. Dump station is near the wildlife loop. No playground or camp store, although both are available down the road towards the wildlife loop. Camp store has a laundry room. Stayed two nights, had a wonderful time. There was a campground host present, but only 1-2 other spots taken while we were there. - charles_from812

Very nice, clean and quiet. Well spaced campsites with lots of shade. Must make reservations either online or by phone, no drive ups. Lots of animals (buffalo, deer, etc.). Plus many scenic routes throughout the park. Definitely a great place to stay! - davern

We made on line reservations around February 2011. We chose site 12E from the picture they have on the web site. However, when we arrived we felt the picture was somewhat deceiving. The camp sites were very close together and the campsite we chose was very small. It would have been difficult to back our 24' travel trailer into this small site. The campsite looked much bigger in the picture. We cancelled our reservations and found a wonderful RV Park in the town of Custer. - PaulanBrett

Very nice park just a half hour from the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore. We stayed three nights in the 'new' section of the park. Long pull throughs with concrete parking pads and grass between the sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Good spacing between sites. Water, sewer and electric hook-ups are conveniently placed. "New' section is wide open with some young trees, none of which affect satellite reception. It is a bit of a hike to restrooms and laundry facilities, which are sparkling clean. Older sections of the park are further away from the highway and have more trees. Check in was quick, easy and staff was friendly and helpful. Park is secure with a gate that shuts at 6pm (but you are given the code at check-in). Security also makes random patrols through the park during the day. Interior roads are paved and easy for big rigs to navigate. Park is clean and neat and obviously well managed. Would definitely stay here again. - boardman

Very nice park. On a hill above Rapid City SD. This is a large park with RV sites and cabins. RV sites are spread out on this large campground with different characteristics. Some are out in the open and others are in areas with pine trees. Lots of options. We opted for an open site to get satellite. Nice views and lots of amenities. Playgrounds and sport courts. Large dog park. Great customer service. Sites in different areas were not visible from other areas. Ours had a large grass area next to the site with a picnic table and fire pit. Good location. Close to Rapid City and Mt Rushmore. Close to Custer State Park and great hiking. - thyde

Clean and convenient facility. We had a back-in site which was doable but we appreciate pull-ins. The staff was very helpful and responsive. We're new at this so it's really nice to have people that are seasoned give pointers! We arrived late in the day and left early so didn't get to enjoy the amenities. It was expensive but perfect for our needs! - Student Camper
