So this is hard to rate for mixed reasons. I do not have Passport America so I paid the full rate for w/e, I also had the pull through sites by the road (not a good thing). I looked elsewhere when I found out, but summer weekends with hookups were nowhere to be found. Would be great if got a site by the stream. I rated high because the stream was a blast! Made the rate digestable. We camped at Allen Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Evans Plunge is fun. Go in morning, leave when crowded in afternoon and come back later. The campsite provides tubes, but adults need your own or you'll get scraped up.

Friendly, a bit rustic, good cooking at cook shack. Easy to miss entry to park coming from Hot Springs. Don't want to take a really big rig in there because there is no much turn around room. Sites are right next to a flowing creek which is nice. Owner couldn't have been nicer. We camped at Allen Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Hot Springs is a neat town, but the park is a little far to make your headquarters for seeing Rushmore, etc.

Can you say sheep/horse poop...I've never seen so much of it in my life. This is a whole in the wall campground, very old and needs tons of work. The bathrooms were old but clean enough considering the campground. The price was crazy high if I was not so tired we would not of stayed, we paid $18.00 with passport America. Sign said $25.00 night for Bikes...CRAZY!! ATT cell worked ok, could not get DirecTV or local channels. Road is very rough going in, I would not stay again. FYI GPS was wrong going in. We camped at Allen Ranch in a Motorhome.

Allen ranch is a small rustic campground on the Fall River. Owner is very laid back and nice. There is a self check-in. Very good location for visiting Mammoth Site, Wind Cave, and Evan's Plunge. Bathrooms and showers are clean, but rustic. We had excellent Verizon cell phone and Mi-Fi service. Spots below are pull-ins and back right up to the river. Pull through's are on top of hill and will accommodate big rig's. Fifty amp, water, no sewer, but good sani-dump. Definitely no-frills, but I would return to camp when I'm back in the area. Our reasonable rate was based on a rate of 250$ per month after Passport America discount. We camped at Allen Ranch in a Motorhome.

This park is along the highway that goes into Hot Springs and therefore can be noisy but not overbearing. The setting is beautiful with many sites adjacent to a warm water stream. There is a small playground for the kids and tubes are provided for fun in the stream. No sewer hookup available, but the is a dump station. No office or attendant, you just place your money into an envelope and slide it into a slot near the restrooms. We would stay here again. We camped at Allen Ranch in a Travel Trailer.
