Easy to find. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Moved from site 308 to 314 because it was just a bit too short for our rig to fit comfortably. Had to park the tow in designated parking down the road from the site. There is road noise but it's fairly quiet at night except for when the train goes by. That's not every night. Very good location for Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and small towns in the area. Laundry room was very clean. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Well kept campground and convenient highway access. Sites are very close together. Hookups are good including cable. Laundry facilities excellent. Check in process was rather detailed and cumbersome. I had to return to my vehicle twice to get additional information that was requested upon check in. Interior roads are dirt so that leads to some dust. Signage for where to check in is confusing. For visiting the national parks both around Custer SP and Badlands, this was a good central point. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very basic at best. The workers were friendly as others have said but that does not make up for the very tight roads and spacing, the poor gravel over dirt roads/sites and the long term residents' run down "RVs" with crap stored all around and under them. This park is just ugly which is in contrast to the beautiful area that it is located in. Do not believe either their web site or their friendly folks about site sizes. They are much smaller than stated. Luckily we were passing through and were there for one night only. There are lots of better choices in this area. Location good! Park? Not so much! We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here 3 times in the past 10 years but those were in late August or early September when the park was less than half full. Now, at the peak of the family travel season in July, it is much more crowded and that makes a big difference. The small pool, bathrooms, laundry, and Wi-Fi were overburdened. As usual we had a standard, gravel, FHU pull through site. It wasn't completely level but big enough for our class C. The $20 Passport America rate for multiple days at this time of year makes full park problems bearable. The cable TV is minimal but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The staff was friendly even though very busy. I didn't see any recycling. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly campground right off highway. Noise is not too bad. Good 50amp service, water, sewer, cable, and wifi worked! It is gravel sites with grass between sites and dirt roads through park. It poured rain for three days straight. Yes, there was some mud...it happens. Use blocks under jacks in case it rains. What I saw was every time it was a little dry, park maintenance was working the roads and sites to smooth them and replace gravel. The staff was friendly and sends you welcome and pre-departure emails. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

This COULD be a decent campground if management took initiative to maintain the roads. We were unfortunate to be there during a rainy period and the roads were a MUDDY MESS! I realize management has no control over the weather but could be much better prepared if the roads were properly maintained. I recommend if you decide to stay here to not pay extra for a "large" site as we did. After barely getting in without any of the unit still in the road front or rear we wouldn't have had enough room to park a bike if we wanted to. I will NEVER stay here again. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

My DH and I stayed at this CG for a week. The employees were extremely nice and helpful. They are expanding the campground to add tons more sites so there was dust (and mud) throughout the sites. The small grassy dog walk area always had some dog poop in it (what's wrong with some people?) Although its listed in the regulations (and is common decency) to clean up after you pets, maybe some signs and poop bags could help the situation? Our site was long enough for our RV but we needed to park our car across the road which was not far at all. We loved the various activities this area has to offer and very much enjoyed our time here. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Well maintained, level, gravel lots. Sites are very close together, with a nice patch of grass, but no shade. I'd rate the park a 7 or 8 if the sites were not so close together. Of note is the fact that they offer the Passport America discount, without so many of the nuisance restrictions. We stayed 21 days and used the PPA discount each day, making it a very affordable stay. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Read the reviews about the mud and noise. We had no mud for the week we were here. Yes there is some road noise from the highway but nothing like some reported. I take it as normal street noise you would get anywhere in a camp grounds with FHU. I think for a weeks stay it's acceptable. Would I want to stay here 2, 3, or more months? Probably not as the sites are too close for my liking and there were no trees for shade. My site was just long enough for my 39' 5th wheel. Once unhooked I had to park across the road which really didn't bother me as it was in front of our trailer. Plus there was room for our other vehicle. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here several times and each time new improvements are being made. The sites are level, good wifi at the site, and central hook ups. A new item we noticed was after arrival we received an email with a welcome note and several links to surrounding things to do including directions.

I assumed this park would be more wooded, but it's out in the rolling plains below the bigger foothills of the Black Hills. Consequently, there were no trees for shade. That said, the sites are probably too close for trees anyway. I believe the longer sites are on the last row or two furthest from the highway. We have a long 5th wheel and a dog, so we were assigned a site close to the dog walk area (much appreciated!) and far from the highway. Consequently, we didn't notice any highway noise. The park's WiFi was not reliable and their free cable TV consisted of about 12 channels many of which had poor reception-at least on the last row a good ways from the office. At least two of the three "Heartland Movie Channels" ran the same movie for 24 hours. The roads and pull throughs are a mix gravel and soil that turned to a very muddy mess while we were there due to considerable rain on multiple days. They are making an attempt to minimize this mess, but there really isn't much they can do without paving the entire area. I'm guessing they're waiting to do that when they finish expanding the rest of the park. The restrooms/showers were very nice and clean and the 50amp service didn't fluctuate The Passport America rate is almost $32 (taxes included), which means the rate for none PA members is $64. Given the mud, poor WiFi and TV selection, I don't consider the PA rate a bargain. Until the roads and sites are paved, we'll stay somewhere in the Black Hills. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV Park is located about 15 miles south of Rapid City and about 15 minutes from one of the entrances to Custer State Park. This is a large, well-laid-out park. Sites and roads are good gravel and site spacing is close but not quite on top of one another. Most of the sites are just long enough for the camping unit but plenty of parking is across the road from the campsites. The campground has decent WiFi, cable TV, a pool, and laundry rooms. There's a camp store and a new activity building is just being completed. Also it looks as if the campground itself is being expanded. The staff is constantly out and about, keeping things in good shape. The location itself is interesting because it is at the edge of the Black Hills which are mostly hidden from view because of the terrain. The immediate vicinity of the campground is treeless, rolling hills but within a couple of minutes of the campground the beauty of the area is plainly visible just to the west and within minutes of leaving the campground and heading west you are driving through it all. For us, the campground struck a balance between being close to the state park, but with full hookups and an easy drive versus being right in the middle of it all but either being in the state park with electric only or driving through twisting, sometimes steep grades to a commercial campground in the Black Hills. Also, this park has the distinction of accepting Passport America and Escapees half price rates with no stay limit or blackout dates. You definitely want one of these two memberships if you are going to stay here. Aside from being just slightly outside the beauty of the Black Hills the only other negative is the constant noise from highway 79, the primary north/south route in the area. Our site was in the row farthest from the highway so the noise wasn't quite as bad as it was in the rows along the highway. The traffic is 24/7 so it is something you have to make peace with during a stay at this campground. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in this park about 7 years ago and they have made quite an expansion probably because of their great service and cleanliness. The sites were level with central hook ups. Wifi and cable were at the site. They are located to all the attractions in the black hills area. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

FHUs were good-elect, water, sewer, wifi , cable. Sites in this park are well laid out , level gravel with grass between and well maintained. Our site was long enough for our 40' MH plus room for our car behind. There was a strong sewer smell the first day were here because the wind direction from the sewer settling ponds and lower end on park. There is expansion going on so much noise from dozer and scraper plus some hwy noise. The park is adding 100 sites so it will be quieter when construction is complete. We would come back if we can stay away from settling ponds. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Close to entrance of Custer SP. We went into park 3 days this time, this is a good time of year to go to park . We went to the Wild Horse Sanctuary near Hot Springs. We did not go to Wind Cave this time but did last time here. We have been in this park before and liked its location . Good pizza place nearby. Diesel prices good at Flying J nearby.

All of the previous reviews are accurate except they understated the road noise. It was horrible. Couldn't carry on a conversation outside, couldn't hear over the noise of the very loud trucks and motorcycles. Couldn't leave the windows open because of the noise. Also, short sites, couldn't fit 34' fifth wheel and truck. Had to park truck 2 rows over by tent sites. We don't walk thru other people's campsites so had to walk all the way around on the road to get to it. Would never stay here again. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.
