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.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you have what you need when you get there. It is not near anything but the highway.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse. Wild life loop at Custer State Park a big disappointment, $15 and not a glimpse of anything.

The perfect park, just cost too much. Entrance is large. Spots are plenty big enough. Nice pool. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Close as a headquarters for seeing Custer State Park, Rushmore, and Wind Cave Park

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Hot in July....lots of tourist traffic on narrow roads. Limited shopping unless you want tourist stuff. Picture pervect lakes scattered about. Fabulous rock, tree lined hills and mountains in the area but not at the rv site...

We loved this park it was centrally located. Great host - they were really sweet people. They had a great laundry room the bathrooms with super clean showers too but we didn't use them. We had full hook up. Sites were gravel with grassy area with picnic table. Would definitely stay there again we were there four nights. You really need to stay that long to see everything. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Highly recommend Badlands, Crazy Horse Memorial, Mount Rushmore, Custard State Park, Ironman scenic byway, Needles scenic Highway , Spearfish. Shopping in Rapid City.

Lots of highway noise until night time, but get in the back row if possible. Easy in and out for big rigs, but needed to unhook the car to hook up to the pedestals. Full facilities and pretty good Internet. Fuel nearby and convenient. Full shopping and food in Rapid City just a few minutes north. Easy access to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Mt. Rushmore is fantastic. Crazy Horse is continuing its epic development and is remarkable. The museum there is world-class. A convenient fuel stop right in Hermosa and near the RV park, but nothing else there. Spring rains made the gravel muddy, but workers were busy getting the park ready for the season. Great old car collection and museum about 10 miles north on the highway. We'd come back again.

Got here in the middle of a wind storm so we were glad of that. Campground has all pull throughs and are adequately wide enough, but if all sites are full, your neighbor will be close. Because we were here in April, no green grass anywhere, but the staff was busy watering and getting the campground ready for the season. You are on a major highway, but our time here it was quiet at night. We camped here in a motorhome. If in the area again, we would stay. Rate reflects Passport, 50 AMP. In my review, campground is not valued for $60 full price. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Badlands, Custer State Park and only 15 miles south of Rapid City.

This is another park we stayed at because we were unable to have an extended stay at our preferred park in Deadwood because it was fully booked for the Cool Deadwood Nights weekend. The rate was Passport America and we had a full hookup, gravel, pull-through site that was not level. The cable TV is somewhat minimal (15 channels) and some of them were not clear and/or had no sound. The park had no more than 40 RVs in it the night we were there. Some of those appeared to be extended stay. The Wi-Fi network was OK but that may be because of how few customers were there. I have been here before around this time of year, so I don't know what the park is like when it is anywhere near full. Amenities and facilities like the small pool, the Internet, and the bathhouse/laundry would be completely inadequate with full park of 300-400 customers. Yes, the traffic noise from SD-79 is loud and constant - even overnight. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy in and out access to sites that are wide enough for slides and awnings. Each site has a table and grass area. We were there after some rains and the ground was soft. The sites are gravel but not nearly enough. Our jacks sunk about six inches. We moved the coach a bit after things dried out and it was fine. Hookups are good. Wifi is spotty with a lot of use. Cable was a bit snowy. Workers were pleasant and available. The park honors Passport for duration of stay so this is a bargain for the area. Road traffic was not a problem towards the back of the park. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.
