We stayed in our 40 foot 5th. Our daughter & family stayed in one of the cabins. This is a great location for those visiting the Black Hills with big rigs! It is easy to make day trips to all the sites from this easy in & out location. It is on a highway & while the noise was very noticeable outside it did not keep us awake. Not even the night we had the bedroom window open. We were in site #411 which was an end site. No leveling needed & right across the road from the restroom/shower building. The shower & restrooms were well laid out & clean. We had no issue using the Wi-Fi & found the connection & speed better than many campgrounds we have stayed at. There are baby trees planted here & there so eventually there will be some shaded areas. My husband prefers not having to maneuver around trees. The park map & rules sheet also had the county name -- made it easy to watch the weather. The sites are various lengths so they can accommodate all the different sized rigs. Plenty of side room for slides & awning without feeling like you were infringing on your neighbors.

Our daughter had planned on tenting it but the sky was threatening so she upgraded to a cabin. The staff had placed us directly across from each other but without any complaining they moved her to a cabin & had changed our site so we were still close. Our 8 yr old grandson enjoyed the playground & the pool with his dad.

The cabin had a queen bottom twin top bunk bed, coach, & small table along with TV & air conditioner. Cabins are a bit small but they still had room for two pack'n'plays for 1 yr old twins. Beds were comfortable. They had a bit of a walk to the bathroom/shower building.

The cable TV includes some stations that they played movies on from the office. They were featuring Forrest Gump & Star Wars while we were there. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The good news: they honor Passport America with no limit on the length of stay. The park looked well maintained. The bad news: the interior roads are very tight for a motorhome. For units on the north end of the camp, you will get sewer smell from what appears to be an open cesspool if the wind is right. The sites are so short you can't park your car with your motorhome. We had to literally park across the road from our motorhome. There is grass between sites, but the sites are so close together we could literally hear people talking in the next rig inside their travel trailer with all of their doors and windows closed. The big down was the wifi. It was beyond question the worst I have ever experienced at a park. When I complained to the staff, their initial response was "it's just kids streaming video and we can't help it." When I tried to explain that would not cause the problem I was experiencing, they basically just said they didn't want to be bothered. I even offered a potential solution, but they didn't want to hear it. It was that attitude, as much as the abysmal wifi, that really turned me off. Most Passport parks I have stayed in have been great. This one is an exception. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Custer State Park is close by. Wal-Mart is in Rapid City about 18 miles away. Wind Cave is about 45 minutes drive south. Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore are both about 40 minutes away. While in Rapid City, do take the Walk of Presidents downtown. You might even learn something about our former Presidents.

Sites were level, excellent cable & WiFi. Showers, laundry, grounds, etc. exceptionally clean. New pool super nice. Entire staff extremely nice, courteous and helpful with directions and suggestions. Location convenient central to My Rushmore, Bear Country, Custer State Park, Badlands, Rapid City, etc. Would stay here again and recommend it to anyone in area. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

front desk a little scattered but very friendly and helpful. Gravel sites. Adequately spaced, pretty level, grass in between. Wifi lacks when park is near full and needs upgrading. Excellent location for our 4 days of birding and site seeing Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills Forest. Laundry in 2 locations were nice, clean and efficient. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Centrally located park to the sights of South Dakota. Close to the highway so there is some noise. Sites are spacious but out in the open. This is a great place to stay if you want easy access to the highway to see the local sights. Staff was friendly. Facilities were very clean. We will stay there again when in South Dakota. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are pull through and generous but it is a lot with no shade. It is net to a busy highway with the expected noise. Utilities are fine, service is very good, and the facilities are first rate. With passport $$ the compromises were easy to accept. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Black Hills cover a large area. Heartland is very convenient for the area south of Mt. Rushmore which includes the "natural" attractions such as Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park. (North of Rushmore, although beautiful, the auto and motorcycle interests dominate along with the casinos.) Heartland is also convenient to entering the Badlands NP from the south that also offers a side trip to Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

We were charged full rate, but the pool, hot tub and showers most convenient to use were all closed. We stayed there for the buffalo round-up (Late September) and it was close by. There were no spaces available in the Custer SP. A warning for those with very low RVs, the site dump is much higher than grade. ~ 8" at our site. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate was electric only, more for sewer. Was told an additional $5 if we wanted to use dump station. Quite a bit of road noise. No shade, typical side by side sites. Convenient to highway and routes to Mt. Rushmore and vicinity. Sturgis bike rally in progress so was fortunate to find a space. Would stay again. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here while visiting Custer State Park, and Mt. Rushmore. We enjoyed our stay here and found the park very good for our needs. Only complaint was the pool closing at 8 pm. The winds caused any campfire to blow a lot of smoke. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Gravel roads and pull-thru sites, some grass, power and water good, cable was very limited. Wifi good in the daytime, bad at night. Was charged $5.00 extra for 50 amp (even though we are 30 amp) because we were over 28 feet, motorhome is 30 ft. rip. Highway noise is terrible, it doesn't let up. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times in the past and, as usual, had a level, gravel, FHU pull-through site. I believe all the RV sites are FHU, pull-through. The sites are fairly close together and even there longest sites are not long enough to handle larger rigs. There also about a dozen cabins and a tenting area. The cable TV was 14 channels but a couple did not show on our TVs. All sites appear to be satellite friendly. The 802.11 network was fine for our basic needs - e-mail and browsing. Although the park was less than half full, many sites were occupied by extended stay customers. There are bath, shower, and laundry facilities at the main building and a second bathhouse in the middle of the park. This is one of those rare RV parks that has adequate bath and laundry facilities for a big park. All of these e facilities are well kept and clean. Unfortunately, as I prepared to start a single load of laundry in the one of 4 washers that was available in the main building, the staffer who had not yet emptied the three washers she was using came in with her friend. The friend indicated that she was going to use ALL 4 machines. She did not appreciate that I called her selfish and suggested she plan her laundering so as not to screw others. I left and carried my stuff to the other building 200 yards away. The pool is nice but very small for a large park. I saw not other recreational facilities or any recycling. This is a nice park but they need to post some rules concerning reasonable use of the laundry facilities. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is in a pasture, right beside the hwy. High traffic noise all day and night. Train tracks across hwy, trains at night blaring horn. Flies are horrible! Pool is very small, crowded with 13 people, all the pool chairs were broken. No shade anywhere! Laundry facilities were worn out and broken. Showers were dirty. Free cable, but never worked! Water pressure minimal. Grassy sites, but not watered. Would not recommend!! We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Off Hwy 79, so ask for a back spot to avoid highway noise. Sites are gravel and very soft, so you must use blocks under levelers. Grass I between and grounds well maintained. Newish looking pool and office and very nice staff. Sites close together ....neighbors close...NO SHADE NO SHADE and could be windy so do not leave awings out. This camp ground is out in the middle of vast space, nothing close, so plan to drive for groceries . Many interesting day trips to Mount Rushmore, Keystone( tourist shops but check to see what is open), Custer Park, Crazy Horse Memorial, buffalo, deer, sheep, goats, deer, etc, so watch for livestock on the roads and other park memorials, but expect to pay admittance . We were in a motorhome. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.
