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. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

The most disappointing place of our 4,700 mile, 10 state trip. Definitely not for big rigs and we didn't even have one. Seemed over priced. Tight turns and poor, steep roads with ruts. It's a trade off of rocky, uneven treed sites for more level ones closer to road where trucks use exhaust brakes starting about 6 a.m. Park is heading down hill. Would not recommend. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.
It was our first time visiting the Black Hills and our first time camping in a motorhome. Our family cannot speak highly enough of our wonderful experience at this resort. The sites are tucked among beautiful pines which provide shade. The staff are the best asset of this park--and the amenities they offer are not far behind. Staff are pleasant, helpful, and ready to assist with any concerns. The premises are immaculate, The WiFi for site E5 was exceptional, and the extra activities provided by the pool and mini golf were a lot of fun for our boys. The convenience of the resort's pancake breakfast can't be beat. We found the pancakes delicious! Our strongest impression was that the owners are interested in providing the best service possible for an excellent value so that their satisfied guests will want to return. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the Black Hills. We cannot believe the wonderful vacation we had here at such a great price. We give Mystery Mountain Resort a 10 out of 10.

Treacherous trying to get into campsite due to steep gravel "lanes" inside campground. Dirt and rock campsites. Just dirty overall. Would not return. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Entry and access roads were very narrow and washed out in many places causing our rig to tip excessively. Sites are very narrow as well and are very hard to pull or back into with rigs longer than 32ft. After three attempts on a long pull through and minor damage to our trailer we left for another RV park. This park/resort would be fine for travel trailers and popups with lengths less than 25ft. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff, close to everything but streets inside park were very narrow, hard to maneuver motor home many hills and ruts. Sites are large but with all the lodge pole pines and terribly unlevel site we had a hard time getting set up. We had to move forward or backward a couple of times to get level and open out slides. Once settled we were very happy there. We loved the wind in the pines. Not a place to go if you want to use your patio, dirt/mud rocks and as I said nothing is level but they have a pool area to sit around if that's your thing. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 5 nights, close to all the attractions, so great base camp. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of area. Roads are gravel and rained hard one night but were quick to fix ruts. Restrooms were well taken care of. Would stay here again. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Tent Trailer.
Not much grass between sites. Sites are terraced and very close together and many near the busy highway. The wifi, an important thing for me, is weak. Good Verizon phone coverage, so I used the tethering option. Handy to Mount Rushmore and other spots. Very clean and new restrooms and showers. Recycling bins for cans and such, which is a rarity. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.

One of the best parks I have ever stayed in. Clean everything. Clean showers, big too. Clean laundry room, clean pool, hot tub, and sauna. Did I mention this place was clean? Only complaint would be noise from the road but we just ran our fans all night to drown it out. The rate I listed was for 6 people. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two nights on our recent Black Hills trip. Overall a nice campground and a very convenient location. Lots of shade and fairly roomy. Nice newer bathrooms, a good pool, and playground. On the downside was the constant traffic noise. Lots of trucks at wide open throttle chugging up the grade. This place would be awesome if it was a mile or two off the highway. Also, our concrete pad (which looked fairly new) was way out of level. Not a huge deal, but it was a surprise. We liked it, but the traffic noise was considerable. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This park was nice because it was shaded by mature trees and had more of a camping feel than a lot of the RV "parking lots" I have stayed in before. The bathrooms and showers were not that clean, and most of the time the stalls were out of toilet paper. The $1.00 pancake breakfast was a nice touch, and the wi-fi worked well, though we were right up front in a pull through. The pad for our site was not level at all, and it was short and narrow. The staff is friendly and was helpful when we asked questions about things to do in the area. I'm giving it a 7 because the cable was limited to only a few channels and none of them worked well and because of the poor shape the pad was in. For the money I expected more. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Very convenient location for Black Hills attractions (1/4 mile to Bear Country). Campground seems to be geared mostly to tents, pop-ups and travel trailers. Very limited number of Big Rig sites and most of those face a heavily traveled, major highway. Very hilly location with uneven sites. Good food at complimentary pancake breakfast each morning. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an all-terrain RV park. Bring your 4x4 vehicles! A couple of the roads in the park were so steep that I had to put my truck in 4WD to keep from sliding down the hill. To say that the spaces were "tight" is a gross understatement. The sites are heavily shaded and the trees make it a real challenge to get into the sites. We would not stay here again.

An excellent balance of a state/national park campground feeling and the amenities of a RV Park/resort. Beautiful wooded facility, very shaded and peaceful feeling. Well maintained bathrooms, walking trails and wifi! Although, you have to be pretty close to the office to pick it up. Our cellphones though Verizon and T Mobile also had decent signal. The staff is super friendly too. During our stay in early October 2007, we were virtually the only ones there. We camped at Mystery Mountain Resort in a Travel Trailer.
