64 RV Parks near Keystone, South Dakota
Aug 2017 - $49.00
Nice campground conveniently located very near the town of Keystone and Mt. Rushmore. As others have noted, the campground is strung along the bottom of a narrow valley between the hills and a two-lane road and railroad tracks. The RV site we were in was short, the truck could not be parked immediately in front of or behind the trailer. The restrooms were clean, although 'rustic' and had a musty smell. The staff was friendly and helpful in helping us get into our site. - LarryG48

Big rig friendly with level sites. Wifi worked good most of the time. Showers were good. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Pretty views of Black Hills National Park. Convenient to Keystone, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Hill City. - Fulltimersrv

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

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

We had a reunion with 6 camp sites, 4 cabins. The site & facility was decent. The area was beautiful. The service and hospitality was terrible. Very rude, unfriendly, and disrespectful. - Doug Steffen

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

This campground has a beautiful setting with great potential. Needs some good upgrading; could really use much better bathroom/shower facilities, some fresh paint, etc. Good location, close to Custer State Park. They have two "pet" wolves in a small fenced enclosure; they REALLY need more space. Seems cruel to have them so confined. - Mark & Karen

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

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

Stayed here for a week. This park has nothing to offer past full hook ups. The sites are pretty narrow and somewhat level. Even though it is up against a highway to Keystone, it is below it enough that the noise isn't horrible. Gravel pads and roads. The WiFi worked very well for us with out Pepwave and the Verizon signal was usable. We picked this campground because it is centrally located to just about everything. The nightly fee is ridiculous for what you get. Small park equals quiet evenings. - Ghettomedic

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

Very nice RV park with a great location. The sites are concrete and plenty long enough for a full size RV and tow vehicle. The park offers OK wi-fi with the standard bathroom/laundry facilities. We will definitely stay at this park again. See our pictures and full review at www.thegilliamsisland.com. - Gary Gilliam

This is a large park with 2 sections & all paved roads. Older section of the park is mostly gravel covered backin sites. This section is located further from Hwy 16. We had no road noise at our site in the older section. The newer section is closer to Hwy 16 & has all concrete pads & most sites are pull thru. In the older section, some of the backin sites are arranged so that the sites back up to each other. The utility connections at these sites are placed between the sites at the rear of the campers. This makes for some long water & sewer runs. All utilities worked well. Laundry was $2.00 to wash & $2.00 to dry. There is a very nice 18 hole mini golf course. No cable tv, but many over the air channels. Wifi worked well at our site. The location was very convenient to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, & Custer State Park. Staff was friendly & helpful. Rate reflects Coast to Coast discount. We will definitely stay here again when in this area. - c lewis

Very nice, large RV resort with paved roads and gravel sites with large grass areas and tables, 1/2 mile from the highway. Sites with and without trees. Both big rig pull thru and back-in sites are wide with FHU. Separate tent areas. Free un-secured Wi-Fi. A large game room and club house, heated swimming pool and spa. Three separate kids play areas and a miniature golf course. Very good Verizon cell and 4G signal. Satellite TV signal in most sites and good OTA TV but no cable TV. Staff friendly and helpful. 10 miles outside of Rapid City and 10 miles to Mt. Rushmore. We would stay there again. Cost listed is for ROD. Accepts C 2 C. - Pepper Dan

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

Site 49B. Staff at the desk let us move to try and get better satellite reception. Park is outdated a bit. Site was gravel, but level. We did use the laundry facility and it was clean. You do share a picnic table with the site next door. Sites are a bit tight. Pool looked nice, but it was drained. We did arrive after hrs so site #'s were a bit hard to see. Office left a map for us on the door. - Greg C

2 sites do share a picnic shelter but it wasn't a problem for us. We really enjoyed being so close to the Rushmore area. Also only about 5 miles to Rapid City and groceries, etc. - Ksage

We were put in a site that was the exact size of our 5th wheel. The site was at the end a row in the direct sunlight. Temps around 100/102 degrees. No space to put our awning out. There were shaded lots that stayed empty for the time that we were there. You share a small covered area with your neighbor with 2 picnic tables under it. There was no room for your town vehicle on the lot so you had to park it on the little lane in front of the RV along with everyone else doing the same. So when you went to hook up to leave, if the RV & vehicle across from you was still there you couldn't leave. We left one day early as did the people across from us. We asked if we would get a refund and the lady just pointed to a sign that said no refunds. Very rude. The only place to walk your dog was right by a busy highway. Would never stay there again. - SueR
