Staff is friendly and helpful. Sites are well maintained and views are great. Great location, convenient to everything. They will have a few sites open for the winter and I will be in one of them. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I was quite unsatisfied. The staff was unfriendly. The Wi-Fi was so bad (either not even possible to log on or very sluggish if you were lucky enough to got connected), it was one of those occasion when it'd been better to not have Wi-Fi at all. Given that the park advertises Wi-Fi as one of its amenities in big letters on their sign, this seems like a bad joke. When I mentioned the difficulties to the staff, they didn't seem to care and tried to tell me some nonsense about certain devices that wouldn't connect. The bathrooms/restrooms are ok and were clean, however when I was taking a shower, the water got cold at the end of my "washing cycle". Both of these issues, the not working Wi-Fi and insufficient supply of warm water, give you the impression that the management tries to maximize the profit by packing as much campers/RVers in the park as possible without making the necessary enhancements in the parks infrastructure to meet the demands of an increased amount of guests. This is a pity since the park itself is ok, has nice views and is considerably quiet. Could be a good park, but the way it is managed right now I wouldn't stay here again but look for some place else (which I actually did the two consecutive nights). We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

The park is OK and not hard to get in and around the park. The pool was OK and the Wi-Fi was OK. It was in a good location. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We reserved a pull-through and when we got here we were told the we could have a pull- through, but it wasn't wide enough for our slides! Additionally, the 50 amp service that we reserved really was a 'weak' 50 amps and it blew out several times. Additionally, the roads are in disrepair and need a lot of work. The "terracing" causes issues in trying to park. We will never stay here again We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I felt like I was stacked like cordwood. Our windows faced the next guy's wheels and on up the hill. I've stayed in "tiered" parks, but this was a mountainside. Each kid was extra too. Come on! People camp here in motorhomes, there is not going to be excessive water or sewer use! We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this campground numerous times and have enjoyed the spot. Nice view and owners and staff are especially nice. Older park and could use some street maintenance, but restrooms have been completely remodeled and very nice and clean. Good exercise to get to the pool if you park on lower part, but I need the exercise so it was good. We are in a smaller RV which makes it easy, but I see people with large ones and large 5th wheels get in even though it looks difficult. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We will never reserve a space here again! Customer service was just terrible & we go south each winter, so we spend a lot of time in RV camps. I've never seen a more filthy and run-down place since we started RVing 2 years ago. The pool is empty (broken - a "broken pool"?? Right beside highway so you hear all the traffic 24/7. When we checked our bank account, they had charged us Rally Week rates - the Rally isn't for another 5 days. We came to have the first of my cataracts removed. Everyone else was charged thirty some dollars a night until the 8th. I'm sure they didn't think we'd notice. Just think how much money they could make by charging each camper $10-$20 more than advertised. That would be a lot of money for their dishonest office staff. This is a LOSER park - I'm doing you a favor telling you about it. There's even trash spread around the inner roads - beer cans, squashed paper drink cups, etc and the Rally doesn't start for another week. I cannot imagine trying to "relax & get away from it all" here. No, this is where you'll want to get away from! Sincerely! We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 3 nights. One night would have been enough. Interior roads in poor shape. Camp sites small and tight. Little to no grass and overall visual impression very poor. Staff were friendly and helpful (almost as if to overcome the poor ambiance of the facilities). Bathrooms were exceptionally clean..impressive. Grossly overpriced, even considering it was Sturgis motorcycle rally week. Would not plan a visit here again. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is excellent. The staff and owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The park is located 25 miles from Mt. Rushmore with shopping and dining very close. We stayed 2 weeks. Cable TV would have been nice, but we did not miss it. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Attendant was very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. Most sites are terraced into the hill. This is ok but the sites are narrow so it doesn't leave much room around the rig. We paid for a pull through site but the attendant cheerfully told us we would have to unhook! We were going to anyway but still. The interior roads are rough pavement, fine gravel covers the sites. Wi-Fi was advertised and the attendant told us there are three connections to try. All three are very weak. For the amount charged, we felt overcharged for this campground.

We camped here for three nights straight. The security light in our campsite was out, the ground is very uneven. On the first night we heard a great deal of noise from the highway right next to us and drunks were tripping over our wires at 2:30AM due to no lighting. Night two the water in our site was turned off "by mistake as they claim" and the shower had no hot water. After two complaints still no security light. Couple next to was fighting - took management 40 minutes to evict them. After night 3 we couldn't wait to leave this place. There are a ton of places to park within miles of this place. Access around the spots are extremely tight and the roads are garbage. Wi-Fi is extremely hit or miss. Would not stay here again. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Tent.

Good access: close to Mt. Rushmore sights and yet close to Rapid City for dining etc. I would call this more of an adult park though families were present. Nice pool and very clean restrooms. The park is kept clean and orderly. Concerns, if any, are promptly addressed. A bad storm came through on my last night and I needed a quick repair. They put me in touch with a repair man who was prompt, efficient and reasonable. The best thing about the Lazy J is the people who work here. From the owner on down, they are attuned to their guests ever courteous and smiling. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I will start with the positive point. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the park is close to town. The negative unfortunately outweighs the positive. They say they are big rig friendly, they are NOT. The sites are short and very close on a steep incline on the side of a steep hill. When you pull into your site it is very close not to tumble over the hill into the next site below. You can not walk around your rig since the hillside going up hill makes it difficult. There is no place to park your tow vehicle or towed car. The interior roads are in terrible shape. The trash dumpster was running over onto the surrounding ground and left for animals to make a mess. We would not stay here again. We camped at Lazy J RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Great staff, accommodating for bigger rigs. Site are narrow, easy to get level, but do not leave much room for picnicking or walking around your rig due to terracing on a steep hill. Tent area looked especially nice. Laundry and rec room very good. Views over surrounding area great. Close to Rapid City. Rate was summer high, Good Sam discount. We'd stay here again.
