The park is within a Lodgepole pine bit of forest which is very nice. I passed tons of other parks where rigs were baking in the sun. The shade and forest feeling was great. It has new owners who took posession March of 2018. Very nice people. The park can use some work and I think the new owners will do that. Some of the roads have ruts. The road in front of the spot I was in was rutty and backing in rocked my trailer quite a bit so things inside got jostled. The owner assisted with backing me in and could see how it rocked the trailer. The next day he spread gravel and evened out the ruts. Great location as it is between Mt. Rushmore and Rapid City and travel is quick. Some sites have electic and water and I believe all are gravel pads. More expensive sites have full hook-ups. Some have concrete pads and others gravel so ask specifics about the site you will be in. Wifi was free and solid. Not that speedy but solid. - Michael_T

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

This is a small park - just about 40 sites. Half of them are on the south side of the park, with limited satellite TV access and no 50 amp (30-20 amp only) and no cable. The other half are on the north side with 50 amp and cable but no chance of satellite TV. The 50-amp sites cost ten dollars more per night than the 30-amp sites. If you want cable, the remote offered is an extra $5. Huge trees throughout the park are beautiful but make for tight roads and turns. We did manage with out 38' motorhome, however. The park is run by some of the nicest people we have ever encountered in 18 years of RVing. They were so helpful, and just lovely. The park is very convenient to town and there is a wealth of things to do in a 50-mile radius. Make sure you know where your site is before you leave the office. The site numbers are very hard to see as they are painted on bricks on the ground behind the picnic tables! - SusanRon

The best part about this campground -- for us -- is the location. Not a lot of traffic, 3 terrific parks within a mile including a 20-acre off-leash dog park, huge old trees for shade, and 5 minutes to grocery stores, hardware stores and other retailers. Electric is included. Water pressure a little low. $2/wash, $1 dry. They have a large number of rental cabins if you have friends or family who want to visit. Sites are close together but everyone has at least a patch of grass. We were able to maneuver our big rig between the trees without difficulty. Loads of deer & turkey in the area. Walk from your site to the creek or Canyon Lake for great trout fishing. - a_elkins

Shady, close to town, walk to beautiful city park and gravel stream-side nature trails across the street. Excellent customer service from staff. Would be a 10 if it had some space between sites (typical narrow grass strip adequate for our slide and awning) and if utilities were consistently located (we shared electric with neighbor and dumped on way out due to sewer connection in front of site). No biggie either way, we look forward to returning. - Travelin Traceys

Saying here for 7 nights. No services. We are in a 36' motorhome. Didn't have reservation but lucked out and got last site on this 4th of July weekend. Very beautiful lake, lovely, peaceful campground. Lots of boaters, kayakers,fisherman, swimmers, etc. - Mary_J

Great NFS (National Forest Service) CG on weekdays. A bit of a zoo on weekends when the locals invade the place. Otherwise, it was quiet and serene. The site was shaded but allowed enough sunlight to keep our batteries charged. The vault toilets were clean but full of bugs. Take a can of Raid with you.
Most sites appeared to be reasonably level. Pull-through sites were blacktop but back-in sites were gravel. Verizon MiFi worked well. The marina just outside the CG had a store with showers and laundry. The showers looked pretty bad but were serviceable. Didn't use the laundry.
The hosts were pleasant but wouldn't/couldn't enforce dog leash rules or 1PM check out. One host drove a truck that sounded like an urban assault vehicle. - LMandTinView

Primitive campground with a fire ring and picnic table at each site. Beautiful setting with full shade for all the sites that we saw. The beach and marina are a bit far to walk to from the campground. - zookeeper

This is a membership park and if you aren't a member then it is highly over priced but it is a pretty nice park. The new area is close to the highway with all pull through sites. The older area is farther away and more like a campground should be with very little road noise. The manager is excellent but some of the office help isn't the best. They are defiantly more interested in selling memberships and taking care of members than people that just pull in to have a place to stay for a few days. WIFI was good but bring plenty of sewer hose since most of the hookups are a long way off on a lot of the sites. I doubt I would stay here again mainly due to the high price. - Linda Allan

If you are going to charge $70+/night, then your campground better be near perfect. This place is absolutely worth every penny. Easy to find, easy to navigate, gave me a choice of spots when I checked in. Site was enormous and had a water & sewer outlet on both sides. Close to Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. Plenty of water pressure, voltage, etc. All their facilities were clean, bathrooms were spotless. The sand volleyball court, basketball court, mini-golf, and heated pool were all clean and in good working condition. We really liked the choice of 200+ movie rentals for free. Tons of sponsored activities for the kids. The only reason I didn't give a 10 was because my site wasn't perfectly level. Had a bit of a downward slope. Other than that, this is by far the best campground we have stayed at. - RLT1

Stayed 6 nights. They have a couple of cars to rent if needed, which is nice. Well organized, easy in and set up. Bathroom and showers and laundry were very clean. - MattB

We stayed in a 32" 5th wheel. The campground is on high ground and drained well. The sites were well maintained. The cable TV worked well but only had about 20 channels. WiFi was good and reasonably fast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The interior roads were gravel, the staff kept them watered to keep down the dust. The campground is located in Rapid City which offers great entertainment and dining choices but you have a lot of traffic noise to contend with. - GordoKat

An unplanned stop on our way to Theodore Roosevelt NP. Arrived well after office hours in the dark and cold drizzle. Our check-in papers and map were all ready and left for us at the night-arrival kiosk. Finding our way to our back-in spot and setting up was no problem. The hot breakfast service in the morning was just what the Dr. ordered after a chilly and rainy night/morning. The staff was outstanding and really helpful in getting us directed to services in town for our ailing RV, which needed help from a VW dealership tech.
Woke up the next day with a crazy European overland adventure mobile a few spots away. Looked like they were ready for the Zombie Apocalypse! Check-out and dump station, and propane sales at our departure were smooth and efficient. Would definitely stay here again. - VW_Vista

Only stayed here to have RV serviced locally. Friendly staff guided to our gravel site and it was not level. The road in was very uneven and pitted. It's an old, somewhat tired park and not big rig friendly as spaces were narrow and very close together. Would not stay here again. - jodik

Very close to Mt. Rushmore, downtown, and all the sites around the area. Park had good power, water, sewer and wifi was decent. Sites were dirt and gravel and fairly level. There were several big rigs including ours and all were accomodated. We could not park our toad at our site, but it was very close by. The management was great and very helpful. There was a Walmart within 15 minutes and several restaurants near by. - Tomandgloria

The current park owners are in the process of making improvements, but there is a long way to go. The park sets on a hillside and the sites are terraced, but only by banked dirt, no retaining wall of any kind. The park roads are rough, patched asphalt with lots of bumps and valleys. The have recently installed new electric service and the backfill is not compacted, so several site have ruts the owners are working on. The new pedestals for electric service only have an outlet, no breakers at the pedestal. The site surfaces are mostly gravel with a thin layer of asphalt that has broken up over time. The sites are very close, mostly level, but narrow and short for the bigger rigs, requiring you to unhook and park away from the site. The owners are very nice and helpful and working to improve the park. Verizon data service is slow but usable, trees on some sites block satellite. Electric and water service were both adequate with no issues. Overall the park needs lots of work and the owner are making improvements. This is an ok (but not great) place to stay while in the area and priced typically for the location and time of year. - AstroDave

Located in the Black Hills National Forest among ponderosa pines along the south shore of Sheridan Lake, with views of the lake. Road into the campground off of Rt #385 is paved, two way and very narrow. The campground is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, vault toilets, and drinking water. Firewood is available at the check-in booth. No electrical hook-ups and quiet time is 10p to 6a. Campground conveniently located to Keystone, the Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments, as well as, Jewel Cave and Wind Cave National Park. We camped in site #61, which was level and well separated from other sites. We would stay here again. - Viarivoli

The park was about to close for the season so laundry and restrooms were closed.
Wide open area with good view.
The owner was very nice and helpful.
Spaces for pull-through were very long. Centrally located to all of the attractions.
Lots of rabbits running around.
The campground is up for sale due to health. - lovingit

This is a "no frills" campground, but for its purpose, I could not find any reason to give it less than a 10! If you are looking for a resort, bypass this one, but if your purpose is a safe, clean park to stay while you explore the area, I highly recommend it! The owners are a wonderful couple that live on-site. They are welcoming, friendly and informative, especially about the area attractions. The park is mostly grass with some gravel, level, and well maintained. Easy access from the highway, and very centrally located to Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, Keystone, ( about 25 minutes) and if you want to head north, easy to reach Sturgis, Spearfish and Deadwood (about an hour ride). There is some construction going on right next door, but they are done by 5 and only work M-F. E were gone most of the day anyway. Laundry room is small- 2 washers, 2 dryers. One of the washers cost $1.00, the other and the 2 dryers are "honor system" for $1.00 each.
Beautiful views from the back of the park. We were very comfortable here! - KSAM14

Sites were too close together for minimal privacy, no cable TV, minimal intermittent Internet connection at best, no fire rings, shared picnic table, very low water pressure, and the topper this morning - the strong smell of an over flowing septic tank. Okay for a one night stay..... Maybe... - George48

Campground has a good location for visiting Rapid City and surrounding attractions. Located right off 16, but we didn't notice any road noise. The couple run the place and were very friendly and helpful, offering a few suggestions for some stops we might add to our travels in the area. Sites were spaced well and pretty level, mostly pull-throughs. Bathrooms were clean. Newer washers/dryers. If you aren't looking for a resort to keep your kids busy, this campground is perfect. - Breezy-N-Wheezy

This is a wonderful park to stay in whether you want to be in Rapid City or if you plan to visit the hills it might not have all the frills the other parks in the area but it has wide spaces friendly owner and good views. - Gail

The RV sites are located at the corner of E. Centre St and Cambell St. The entrance is on E. Centre. There is no staff at the RV park. Pull in to any site, disconnect your toad, drive south on the interior dirt road with your toad, make a right turn and look soon for the office at 800 San Francisco Street. Go in, pay $30., get a tag telling the date you will be leaving. They will send a person to unlock your electric post. Same price, 30 or 50 amp. The person they send will know which sites are 30 and which are 50 amp. Important: call first to be sure a site is available. While only 5 sites were occupied when we stayed, if an event is scheduled, like a fair, then it is unlikely a site will be available. Office open M-F, 8 AM to 5 PM. GPS: since the RV park has no address, you can use 600 Cambell St., the address of a local business across the street. Once there, the park will be obvious. Use Exit 60 from I-90 and drive south looking for signs "Central States Fair Grounds. Very good overnight stop. No shade. Level. - michcamper38

We stayed overnight here to be close to a service location the next morning. It serves the purpose of an overnight stay; long pull-thrus, gravel sites, good power and water. Small trees, dead grass, a bit of road noise, and on the night we were there, lots of empty sites. Check-in is by phone and they'll send someone out to unlock the power box and collect the fee. Surprisingly, the rates do not change during the Sturgis Rally, although even then there were few people using the park. Convenient to the Freightliner dealer and Rapid City, otherwise there are much better places for just a few dollars more. - Meanderman

Used this campground because it was only $30 compared to most I called around here which was $60 and up. Some of the sites were on concrete but I chose a gravel site as it was closer to the showers. Was a good place for seeing the sights of Mt. Rushmore etc. The price is the only thing this campground has going for it. - trailmaster
