Great place to stay for the Sturgis rally. It's away from the hustle and bustle but close enough for a nice ride. Staff were accommodating (they moved our motorcycle trailer after we unloaded our bike) and helped guide us as we backed into our site. - OlsonKD

I read other reviews saying the sites were too close, but I think they were fine. Enough room for our needs.
The staff/owners are great. Really friendly and accommodating.
The location is great. I took the dog for a walk every day in the campground and in the park adjacent to the campground. The park is marvelous; well maintained and lots to do.
There were many campers with pets and everyone cleaned up after themselves. There is also a wonderful dog park just down the (paved) trail.
I would definitely stay at this campground when in the Black Hills. It's on the edge of town so you have easy access to the city's amenities, as well as, easy access to the multitude of attractions in the surrounding area. - The Original RV

Overpriced, no amenities. The sites are small and shady no one was next to us so it wasn't bad, but if it were full, it would be cramped and noisy. Our site was not level. When we arrived, it was not busy, the owner checked us in we did not get a flyer listing camp rules, location of trash, etc. She seemed like since she already received 2 nights deposit, it did not matter that we were here. Owner lives on the property and seemed like we were imposing on her property. She then told us that cable would be $2 extra and we would be given a cable box that we would have to program and also call the cable company to turn it on. We asked if antenna would work and she said probably not. We did not purchase the cable, we did not raise antenna and received 14 channels very clear. Good wifi. This campground is okay if you just want a place to park your rig. We like to sit outside, relax and take in the views, but the only view we had was the backside and trash bins of the hotel next door. The lake is a short walk from the sites to a large grass field with not even a bench or table. This park is away from I-90 in town and not really easy to get to. This park is close to the attractions we were interested in seeing. We would not stay here again. - savizz

Great park, close to Rushmore, Hill City, Keystone, etc.. Spots were spacious, park is quiet. Very nice people working there. No issues. - isbellml

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

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 resort is a great place from which to explore the Black Hills region of South Dakota. The staff was very friendly & informative. The grounds were well maintained & the pool was adequate & clean. The pool deck area is a little cramped & surrounded by a high fence. There were basketball court & horseshoe pits. No Sprint cell service (roaming only). - rracer5

If I could I would rate it a 9.5. This is a really nice park to stay at. A 10 is perfect and this RV park is not perfect but close. There is a 'new' area and 'old' area, I recommend the old area, it is away from the highway and depending on the site there is shade. The only real complaint is that the WiFi did not work well. It has everything you could ask for putt-putt golf, hot tub, swimming pools, large dog run, store, rec room, laundry, large sites which are nicely spaced. I highly recommend this park, We would definitely stay here again. - newbies2016

We stayed as a Coast to Coast member. The site that was given to us we were told was a back in but the water and sewer were on the wrong side and would have required 3 hoses. So we pulled in because the 50 amp on the other side was easier to hook up with a longer hose. We came on a Saturday and it was plenty busy with multi-family sharing one site so it was very cramped. The site we had 121 had plenty of space and next to cabins and tent areas. - Fulltimingit

Very run down park, substantial deferred maintenance. Virtually zero rock at sites and roads. It rained and my site was a muddy mess with standing water/poor drainage. Entire facility was the same. I stay at 40+ parks a year and this is the second worse I have experienced. Unfortunate, good location with services (restaurants, grocery, etc.) in reasonable close proximity. I would recommend considering one of the many other RV parks in the local area. - BK2

While this park is close to a few attractions and the staff is friendly, it is a run down dump of a park. The website's directions to the park are obtuse and your GPS, they warn, will probably lead you to some very odd destinations.
If you must stay here, call ahead and make sure you understand how to get here. - LarryJohnston

The park is overpriced for a 30 amp electric/water site and the sites are very close together. The fire ring on the site next to us was right under our bedroom window. Interior roads are narrow and the sites are so narrow we had trouble getting into our site. The sites have covered picnic tables and we narrowly missed hitting it trying to get in and we could not open up our awning. No cable TV at our site and wifi (Tengo) wasn't very good. Would not stay here again. - 69636

Stayed overnight. Park has some awesome views however for us, it ended there. Staff at desk did not appear happy about being there. I was to be escorted to site (which is fairly normal) however I mentioned to guide that I did not want to unhook and was curious if I could fit in..told me he didn't know? He guided me into my tiered site and pushed me to far left though I was trying to get more centered. My RV was in close proximity to a tree on right side (for leaving) and grateful camper in front of me did not park his truck behind his RV or I may not have gotten out. Quiet hours are 9 PM to 8 AM. There is an 8x10 sheet of what you can't do at park as well as further pet instructions on receipt. Personally, if we hadn't met some good folks camping there it would be a total downer for us. Not sure why I picked this park as have stayed elsewhere on previous trips and will not stay here again. - ownedafew

Park is a bit tight and completely pack due to proximity to Mt Rushmore and the season. Friendly and helpful staff. 3 dog parks. Nice pool. Good clean restrooms and showers. No Sprint cell coverage, but AT&T LTE works fine. - Ken Camp

We only stayed in the area because we needed work done on MH in Rapid City. I would not stay in the lower section ever again as it was too small for our MH. Also it was uneven and there were large rocks on the site which could have become lodged in the dual tires. If you must stay in this park insist on the upper section if you are in a MH. Anywhere you drive around town practically you will have great views of the mountains and city. You will have some views from this park also but I would not rave about them. Staff was helpful even cutting down some branches off of a tree so it would not scratch the MH. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

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

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 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

The staff was very friendly. They seemed glad to have RVers stay the night. There is plenty of room in the back of the level parking lot. There was no cut grass anywhere which would make it difficult for those with dogs. There is no charge, but the website required at least $1. Be sure to shop at Cabela's to show your appreciation. - Debnroux

Nice place for an overnight and free dump. You can access Cabelas easily from I-90. The RV parking has all paved sites, very quiet even though it is close to the freeway. - simonsrf

We stayed here overnight in a 40' motorhome. The Cabela's store is right off of I-90 in Rapid City. They have a huge parking area for RVs and campers who want to stay overnight for FREE. It is no-hookup dry camping, however, they have on-site potable water spigot as well as a free RV dump at the back of the parking lot. The area is lighted very well at night. We felt very safe. You can run a generator if you have it in your camper, but, observe good noise limits with your fellow camping neighbors if there are any. We would definitely stay here again. - Tiffinatic
