Very simple CG. A bit pricey for no amenities. Public laundry about ½ block away. Staff friendly and very laid-back. Roomy with grass between gravel sites. All 50 amp FHU. Didn't check restrooms/showers. Route US-16 about 100 feet away but noise wasn't all that bad. Only 12 miles to Mt. Rushmore National Monument. We camped at Trailside Park Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Mt. Rushmore National Monument 12 miles; $11 parking fee, no entrance fee. Hill City is a quaint village, 1 grocery store, 2 gas stations (both w/diesel). Railroad museum is one room of memorabilia with a model railroad ($6/person). Train rides available ($28/person). Ate at the Mangy Moose saloon. Smothered burrito was good, house margaritas pretty good.

This is a brand new RV park on the south end of Hill City. It is open, but not everything is completely finished. They still have some work to do on some of the RV sites, are currently working on the landscaping around the main building, and are still building cabins. The 34 sites I listed above is just for the projected number of RV sites. I do not know the total number of cabins. We spent one weekday night here. All RV sites are back-ins set on 10' wide gravel pads. Some are not big enough for large RVs. All are FHU with cable and free WI-FI. I did not hook up to the cable and the WI-FI worked well for us. That may be because we were the only RV customers in the park. All sites appear to be satellite friendly. The park roads are gravel and the site pads are raised causing a safety hazard for folks stepping out of their RVs onto a sloped surface. There is nothing (no pool or playground) for kids. All the sewer pipes are about 10" above the ground creating hookup and dumping headaches. The park is right off US385 and the traffic noise is steady and loud until dark. It picks up again first thing in the morning. Most of the town's attractions (shops, restaurants, museum, 1880 Train, etc.) are within a mile or so of the park. I thought the rate was high, and there are none of the usual discounts (GS, AAA, etc.). Even if they fix some of the problems (sewer height, for example), I don't think I would rate this park much higher because of the cost and noise issues. We camped at Trailside Park Resort in a Motorhome.
