We loved this park. It's what a country RV park should be, level site, a stream right behind us, really great shade trees, well groomed area, table at each site. Although we faced a road, it was not a high traffic area and really quiet. Enjoyed the train coming by across the road on it's trip from Keystone to Hill City and back. The WiFi and electric were excellent, much better then the Military Base we stayed at close by. The owner was really friendly and helpful on choosing a good route back to SLC, UT. We'll be back next year and spend more time here. It is a great place to stay while visiting the area. The spaces are wide enough to enjoy kicking back and totally relaxing. - sgtjoe44

Kemp's Kamp is a wonderful campground. It is very close to Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Monument and all the area attractions around Keystone and the surrounding towns. The campground hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a full hookup, pull-through site, that was just a little tight, but we were able to maneuver it okay. The restrooms and the whole campground were very neat and clean. We would definitely stay at Kemp's Kamp again. - campers5350

Great place to call home for the Black Hills area. Campground is spread along a road, but not noisy. The train ride comes by the camp about 4 times a day. The staff were friendly and helpful, even gave me a jump when my toad battery was dead. Restrooms were a little rustic for my wife, but were clean. Lots of trees and shade in the back in area of the camp. We will stay here again in the future. Don't recall the nightly rate, they do give Good Sam discount. - myslicky

We stayed for one night. The setting was very nice and impressive. However it cannot compare to RV-only parks. Was not as nicely kept and more noisy than RV parks that we stay at. - RVPRO

Nice and quiet place. Most sites are back-in. Big playground and steam train goes right across entrance! I'll stay there again. - Will Travel

The park is in disrepair. There is no cable TV and the wifi is actually up in the hotel and is unuseable.
The men's bathroom has not been cleaned during my stay and is very well used.
The spaces are very right and any sizeable unit with slides find parking a challenge.
If you want to camp right in Keystone so you walk to the shops and train, it is a place to park. If you intend to stay in the area for any length of time, I would recommend looking elsewhere. - GaryWB1953

Campground was run down with lack of maintenance. Problems viewed were 50% of showers not working, holes in restroom floor, keys issued for restroom were not necessary as locks were not working, camp site markers down and damaged, poor attitude of registration staff when problems were brought to their attention. This could be a nice little park close to Mt Rushmore. It is very run down and associated with the Travel lodge Hotel Chain. One would expect to pay premium prices for a park close to an attraction, but price was high for a good quality park in the area, let alone the very poor shape the park was in. - Old Detective

We stayed here one night. Laundry was next door under gas station. Sites were all pretty flat and we did have plenty of room with a 25 foot bus. It was a bit slow when we were there and if it was full it would be a little bit tighter but would be enough room to spred out a little bit. Wireless internet was available but we couldn't get the signal from our spot. The cable was a bit fuzzy on a couple channels. Electric on half the sites on wrong side. The ground was good for the wheelchair hard packed gravel and even with the rain it wasn't full of puddles and wasn't muddy. - wmah

My family and I camped here for two nights, this is a very nice park for tent camping or small campers/motor homes. I can see where larger vehicles would have troubles, not because of the park, but due to the roads coming in, beautiful drive, but probably not in a large vehicle. The staff was very friendly, and we really enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast. The facilities were all clean, and the scenery is fantastic. If you are vacationing in this area, I would highly recommend this park. - lmhortec

We camped here from Friday, August 30, 2013 to Monday, September 2, 2013 with our son and his family. The campground is quiet, clean, and peaceful. We enjoyed swimming in the clean, in-ground pool (although if it were covered at night with a solar cover, that would have helped the VERY cold temp a lot), mini-golf, endless hiking opportunities, and a campfire each night. The scenery can't be beat! Camp store has limited supplies, swimming accessories, ice, firewood, souvenirs, and lots of t-shirts for sale. There is a small deli attached for an 'on-the-go' meal. We enjoyed this camping experience very much. We camped here in a motorhome and our son has a 5th Wheel. Note: The $16 per night camping fee was military discount. - TrixieBelle559

We camped in our 16' travel trailer for two nights. We had asked for a shady spot since there was a heat wave but when we arrived we found we were exposed to the sun most of the day. We were parked up against a hill with tent campers across from us along a creek. The air was full of mosquitoes both early morning and evenings. While the staff was friendly and helpful, the bathroom and shower facilities were primitive, well worn and dirty. In addition, the park had only three showers in the single bathroom facilities for each sex, not nearly enough with all the people staying at the camp. In addition, instead of having a separate laundry, two washers and dryers were in each of the bathrooms, two for the women's and two for the men. With the washers and dryers running, and the heat generated, the bathrooms were almost unusable. We would NOT stay at this RV park again. - User2057

I want to say first of all that the staff here is absolutely fantastic! They were exceptionally friendly, and were very helpful when it came to setting up and asking for things to do in the area.
There were some things about the camp that could be improved on. The site we were on wasn't level. It was a gravel site, and I didn't bring any leveling boards. That could be a novice camper mistake, but I haven't had that issue elsewhere. The biggest problem I had was the water pressure. The site we were on, it did have full hook-ups, but I ended up filling my onboard water tank to have adequate pressure. We stayed four nights, and my first two showers were with drizzling water. Also, they do advertise free WiFi, but I was unable to connect throughout the duration. Finally, the sites are very close together, so if you're looking for privacy, and they have a high occupancy, you won't get it.
The campsite was clean and well kept. They were in the middle of doing some site maintenance, which isn't a big deal to me because we were exploring a lot of tourist attractions and not staying on property all day. They also had a complimentary cup of coffee for us each morning at the cafe, which was very nice.
Again, the staff was very friendly, and they helped make the trip enjoyable. Their attitudes helped level out some of the problems I felt were at the site.
Oh, and the wolves were kind of neat, hearing them howl was expected, so it wasn't annoying at all. The owner was extremely pet friendly too! - joshnichols84

Don't follow GPS to navigate to get there. We drove the 16A road south of Mt. Rushmore and I do not advise you to drive this road in an RV. The road is extremely curvy and there are a few really narrow and short tunnels to navigate through. A portion of the road is very tight in width and the shoulder is a few inches drop so quite tough in a 30' motorhome to navigate through. There are a few RV sites with hookups but navigating to park in them is tight and tricky. The owner guided me and I ended up smashing my cargo bay door to my propane and now it is really difficult to open the door. The wolves were nice to see and the campground is nestled away in a valley surrounded by the Black Hills. - jmad1013

This park is very convenient to Custer State Park and the Needles Highway. It has a few RV full hook-up sites with 30amp. They also have cabins and tent sites and a very nice pavilion. The grounds are beautiful. The camp name is derived from the pair of wolves who make their fenced-off home here. The owner/managers are very nice and helpful. For 4th of July they had a BBQ for all that was great fun. - terriesm

This was a very nice campground. Most corrals are covered, plenty of corrals to keep horses separate. Very clean restrooms and showers, with laundry available and a small restaurant on site. Wi-Fi is available if you are close enough to the office/restaurant which also has a HUGE covered porch with lots of rocking chairs, tables for playing cards or checkers and seating area for all to enjoy. Very friendly owners. Biggest downfall was the camp sites are very un-level, so bring lots of wood for leveling your unit. The trails are easy and very scenic. Riding to Lakota Lake is a "must do". - Hole in the Wall Gang

A few weeks back, I asked about Holy Smoke Resort/Campground near Mt. Rushmore. There were several older posts, so I wanted to give a current review.
We stayed for 2 nights. It is a full hook-up only, no bath houses, which was fine for us. There are only 20-25 sites. All sites are pull-thru, and big enough for the biggest 5th wheel or diesel pushers. Not any real frills, but comfortable and best of all QUIET. It was off season, so including tax it was $38 and change per night.
If you are going to Mt. Rushmore, we would give it two thumbs up!
Happy travels!!! - John Harris

The problem I personally have with this park is that it is advertised as a "Resort". This is simply not true. What it really is, is an over-priced parking spot conveniently located close to Mt. Rushmore. No bathrooms, no showers & NO fires. We couldn't even use our Smokey Joe to cook dinner. You have to have a gas grill. Had I known I guess I would have packed one had it been advertised as such. The spots are at least level & shaded. They do have hook-up for electric, water & sewer. All the RV spots are right next to 16 coming into Keystone, constant vehicle noise. - Lets_travel

We stayed five nights at this camp ground, and it could have been better. There are no showers or restrooms in the park. The Wi-Fi comes and it goes most of the time, but it does work on occasion. Other then those drawbacks the park it not bad at all. They have a restaurant with very good food, with there specialty being ribs. The deer are seen every night and morning in the park, along with turkeys. The site's are gravel and level. The road is also gravel, but muddy when wet. There is no laundry available in the park. - hotrod23

Very nice park just a half hour from the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore. We stayed three nights in the 'new' section of the park. Long pull throughs with concrete parking pads and grass between the sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Good spacing between sites. Water, sewer and electric hook-ups are conveniently placed. "New' section is wide open with some young trees, none of which affect satellite reception. It is a bit of a hike to restrooms and laundry facilities, which are sparkling clean. Older sections of the park are further away from the highway and have more trees. Check in was quick, easy and staff was friendly and helpful. Park is secure with a gate that shuts at 6pm (but you are given the code at check-in). Security also makes random patrols through the park during the day. Interior roads are paved and easy for big rigs to navigate. Park is clean and neat and obviously well managed. Would definitely stay here again. - boardman

Very nice park. On a hill above Rapid City SD. This is a large park with RV sites and cabins. RV sites are spread out on this large campground with different characteristics. Some are out in the open and others are in areas with pine trees. Lots of options. We opted for an open site to get satellite. Nice views and lots of amenities. Playgrounds and sport courts. Large dog park. Great customer service. Sites in different areas were not visible from other areas. Ours had a large grass area next to the site with a picnic table and fire pit. Good location. Close to Rapid City and Mt Rushmore. Close to Custer State Park and great hiking. - thyde

Clean and convenient facility. We had a back-in site which was doable but we appreciate pull-ins. The staff was very helpful and responsive. We're new at this so it's really nice to have people that are seasoned give pointers! We arrived late in the day and left early so didn't get to enjoy the amenities. It was expensive but perfect for our needs! - Student Camper

Staff we're very pleasant and helpful advising that the only sites available were close to the highway when I called to reserve. We chose to stay anyway and are very glad we did. Highway noise was barely an issue and the sites were spacious with lots of shade. Wi-Fi was very good with only a little drop out in the morning. They also have a $2 all you can eat pancake breakfast as well as other options on site. - Slownsy - Marmor

Small sites and they were not level but we made it work. Close to Mount Rushmore which was nice. Wooded sites were something we enjoyed. We would stay here again. - Lillylil

Nice campground, lots of tall pine trees. Makes it a little tight driving to the camp site but not bad. Campsite is gravel and has picnic table and fire ring. Site was almost level but had strange hook ups. Water and power on one side, sewer on the other side. Gave it a 8 would have been a 9 with cable. We were able to pull in many air TV stations. Wi-Fi was strong at our site (E-7). Did not check out pool, showers or laundry. Office staff was friendly and had a small but good selection of gifts and basic food supplies. Would stay here again. - topperdan

Phoned ahead and was told that nobody would be available between noon and 4pm so just pick a site and register after. Did that, then an elderly man walked up with an attitude, upset I hadn't stopped at the office. He threatened me with physical violence, then phoned the police. They must know him because they didn't show up. We hooked the toad back up and left. By far, the most bizarre, irrational behaviour I've seen in park staff in over 20 years of RV travel.
Not many parks open that time of year, maybe these "park hosts" were hoping to not have guests, but then just be closed. Park seemed good, but owners need to know how their hosts are treating potential guests. - Alcatrazmatt

Campground staff was very nice. We had 2 units traveling together and was able to get a site that shared a picnic pavilion. Was nice to have that shared space. - msvacation

People were nice. The park needs a little updating. The sites are very close together. Maneuvering a motorhome proved to be difficult. - Familyfulltimerv
