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.
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.Undo

Nice campground, gravel parking with grassy area and picnic table. Our site faced a green field with horses, very pretty. We were in the back row away from the highway, so it was quieter than the front rows. About 15 miles from Mt. Rushmore, we would stay here again. Our rate was a Passport America rate, very reasonable for the area. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate is for Passport America. This is a perfect park for visiting Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park in the Badlands National Forest. Access to the park was good as was getting around on the gravel roads. Management and staff were very helpful. Our site was gravel and very level. We had a small bit of grass, a picnic table and a fire ring. There are few trees but most sites are lined up so that you have afternoon shade in your patio area. The showers are individual and looked clean. The laundry, while more money than I am used to paying, was very nice and clean with newer machines. Wi-Fi worked very well but not too many channels on the cable. Utilities were good. There was a small playground for the children and a dog walking area. I thought this was an excellent campground and would certainly return. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

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.Undo

This park is right off of state highway 79 so it's convenient when traveling from the south. It is close to local attractions if you don't want to wind your way into the Black Hills campgrounds. The owners are friendly and accommodating. Although it is well kept, there are no trees for shade and you hear the noise from the highway,. It quiets down somewhat at night. They also charge an extra $5 for 50-amp power, which seems a little steep. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This campground appears to be an pasture that had gravel thinly spread to carve out campsites. The utilities are fine but the water pressure is severely lacking.The pool area, showers and laundry are adequate, even though the showers are the smallest I've seen. It's OK as a base while visiting the area. Forget about sitting outside. As I said, this place is a converted cow pasture. There isn't a shade tree within 5 miles. Bring extra fly swatters. You will be swarmed if you step outside your coach. Then 20 flies will follow you as you retreat indoors.The grass was over ankle high the first 5 days we were here.PA rate isn't worth it We won't return.

Large park with 150 pull thru sites. Currently here on the Memorial Day weekend and only 26 spaces being used. Needed to cancel our reservation for one night and they could not refund the money back! The place is empty! The pool nor hot tub is open and only one small laundry area is open. Restrooms are large and clean. Showers are tiny! Bad reception on cable but strong WiFi signal. Off of a four lane highway so you do hear traffic noise. 15 miles to the closest grocery store. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This park is right of the highway and located in a relatively, flat area. This made it a plus for our RV. The sites and roads in the park are gravel and our rig had no problems leveling. Bathrooms and the laundry were extremely clean. It should be noted that only one of the laundry rooms was open when we were there. I have to agree with a fellow reviewer about the water pressure. It certainly made showering and washing dishes, interesting. There is a nice pool, which we took advantage of. Actually, we had planned to use the hot tub, but it was colder than the pool. As a side note, if you happen to visit Hill City, be sure to eat at the Alpine German Restaurant. Don't forget to save room for dessert, OMG, it was out of this world. Needles Scenic Road is also a must. We were glad we had our car, as the RV would not have fit through some of the tunnels. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

The park is within 20 miles of Mt. Rushmore and right off Rt. 79 which is the good news and the bad news. There is nothing to block the noise from the highway. At times it feels like you're actually in the median! The Wi-Fi and cable are good. The water pressure is really low so taking a shower in the rig is interesting. The spots are gravel and reasonably level. The park is a good choice if you are going to Mt. Rushmore because you don't need to deal with the steep hills near the monument.

We stayed here because of the great rate (Passport America) and because the park did not have bad reviews. It was not fancy, but it was level, gravel w/little grass on sides, and Wi-Fi worked well. Easy to get in and out of sites. Office people were nice. There was a little road noise, but quieted down at night. Horses next door which were fun to watch, but I think a few more flies and wasps maybe because of that. Convenient to Custer State Park which is a super park! Must do all those scenic drives.

If you wish to be out away from the city, this is the park for you. Convenient to Custer State Park and not a bad day trip to the Badlands and the infamous Wall Drug in Wall SD. Rate reflects Passport America for weekly rate. Hookups worked okay; however, water pressure was so low at times our pressure gauge registered below 30 psi. At least half of the campers were assigned sites in the north end even though the laundry and restrooms had been closed for the season. There were spaces available close to the main bldg which did have open restrooms and a small laundry. The pool was closed as well as the hot tub having been emptied. We feel like we paid for amenities that were not available. It would have been polite for them to tell us when booking that these things were closed for the season. I bypassed the laundry altogether and used the one at the nearby Flying J, which I found to be immaculate and available with no one using the eight washers and dryers. Price was comparable to other laundromats. We might stay here again as other parks closer to Rapid City are often over priced. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

PPA rate makes it worthy of a "10", but I dropped it to a"9" because pool was not heated to my expectations. Road noise was not even a factor. Campground is close to everything you would want to see and do. I would stay here again We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Stayed here because it's the only one NOT in the mountains that's PA. Lots are long and level...a bit close together but we were there off season so they put people in every other lot. Good facilities; great cable out of Rapid City. Route 79 does present with some road noise, but not bad in a fiver. Weather was chilly so our windows were closed which helped. I wouldn't really recommend this one for someone with a popup/tent trailer because of that. There is also a train track right next to the highway, but from what we saw, only one train goes through a day/night. No problem for us. Used this as a base camp for Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park. Saw the buffalo herds. Diesel about a mile away at the Flying J on the hill. Pizza store on Route 36 about 1/2 mile away has delicious pizza!! We will stay here again on our next trip to the area. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

The Wi-Fi is good and there are many available connections. The campground is pretty empty and mostly senior citizens. The campground has a pool, hot tub, a playground. But I do not think it is family or kid friendly, as the host appears to not like kids very much. Also, they charged additional $4 per person per night even for children, which seems excessive to me. This is a place more for couples than family in my opinion. We camped at Heartland RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo
