Sites are narrow and tiered with drop-offs between sites making walking around the site tricky. Site was not long enough so our toy hauler ramp was in road when down. Had to park our truck across the street in order to fit our bicycles and paddle boards in front of our rig. Restroom facilities were clean and updated. Didn't use pool but looked well-kept. Great view of city from end of campground. Staff were all friendly. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Positive comments here. This little campground has received some pretty tough reviews, but I understand that it's impossible to please everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Yes, the spots are a little tight, but there's still plenty enough space to put your chairs out, do some outdoor cooking, and meet some really nice people. Yes, the roads are a bit rough and the campground could use a little cosmetic work, BUT the view is beautiful, the campground and facilities are clean, there are great motorcycle roads beginning right outside the park, and it's convenient to many tourist attractions and more. The new owners are some of the hardest working people you have ever met and are doing everything possible to bring this little gem up to aesthetics that will please the pickiest of travellers. We've met many nice people here and would definitely stay here again. Give these folks a chance. We camped here in a 30' motorhome towing a 16' enclosed motorcycle trailer.

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. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Left out the front entrance and it's 20 miles to Mt Rushmore. Deadwood is 44 miles away. Right out the front entrance to town. Safeway is about 4-5 miles. Walmart nearby. Town is close with all the amenities.

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. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff. Park has great views. We had problems with the water, the handyman came to fix it, but broke off the faucet. So our rig sat under a fountain of water for five minutes until he went back to turn off the water. Others guests said they also had water problems. Might be time for an update to an otherwise great park. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites are close together. Broken blacktop, stone and dirt. The electrical post was broken, the conduit was holding it together. This park needs some work. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

First, the good stuff. The managers/owners were very attentive to their customers. They guided us to our site and helped with positioning. There is a nice pool and a fitness room. However, the sites were extremely tight on a terraced hillside. Our 35 foot motor home barely fit and we had to move the picnic table to the back of the MH so we could access the basement doors. We would not have been able to sit out in chairs or grill without sliding downhill into our neighbor's site (though we didn't want to sit out in this ugly park). Sites were gravel and dirt with a few weeds under the tables. The WiFi was mostly not working; when we connected at all it was weak. Owner said he is improving soon. There were a few OTA channels. We stayed here to visit Mt. Rushmore. On the 20-mile trip to the monument, we saw several much nicer RV parks. Unless you need to be close to Rapid City, I suggest looking further down HWY 16 for a place to stay. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hwy 16 (Rushmore Road) is undergoing a major upgrade. Two lane traffic, tight left turns, congestion, doable - but must be patient. Close to campground are Wal-Mart, Shopko, fast food and all fuel types. We often stay at this campground to visit family in the area. Close to "inner city" and on route to tourist sites.

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. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is based on monthly stay. We stayed here primarily because of the location. Just outside the heart of Rapid City with easy access to the Black Hills, the bypass to the newer shopping area, and right off the highway, the location makes it easy to access shopping, dining, and tourist attractions. The owners are friendly and are working to improve the park. Sites are tiered, narrow, and fairly level gravel with convenient hookups. An older park, interior roads are crumbling although the owners are working on improvements. The major drawback for us was the water; probably the hardest well water we've ever encountered, it left a film on dishes and required recharging our large water softener every three days. The WiFi generally worked well depending on the time of day, and Verizon cell service was good but data (4G) was intermittent. No cable TV but ample OTA and no restriction to satellites from most sites. A number of long-term residents, mostly in the back-in sites, and some are trashy. If not for the water, we'd love to return, but probably will have to look elsewhere. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Spent 5 nights for first time south Dakota visit. Older park...but you can't beat customer service,location to town and attractions. Close at airforce base if military. Not to mention best views in area. Very dog friendly with several areas designated for walking etc. Lots of nature..saw deer, turkey, cows, rabbits right from site. We had planned 6 nights but had to leave 1 day early for distance to next destination and we were reimbursed for the night...which we did not expect or ask. Mgr owner is hardworker and is good for park and constantly updating as new owners. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Really liked this park. The sites need a little TLC (gravel sites not quite level) thus the reason for not giving this a 10+ rating. The sites are terraced and the deeper you go into the park the better. Sitting up on a hill you have a panoramic view of Rapid City. About 1.5 miles from grocery, restaurants and services. East jump off spot for Sturgis, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood, etc. Great dog areas with grass. Nice laundry facilities, workout room, pool. People we met were nice and friendly. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We thoroughly enjoyed this park. Our gravel site was level with just enough room in the front for the car to be parked sideways. The staff was very helpful and appeared to be updating the park. We would definitely come back. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Aside from the normal big sites, we enjoyed visiting the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs. We would highly recommend dining at the Wine Cellar, Minerva's, and Botticellis (make reservations at all of them) Rapid City is a great small town that is full of friendly people and is easy to navigate.

We pulled in at supper time and were shown to our site by the camp host, which was great. This park is very quiet - even when full -- only distant traffic noise and no loud music or parties going on, which is great.

The kids enjoyed the pool to themselves. The whole site is on a hillside so there's some view to be had, but the roads go up and down the slope so they didn't ride their bikes very much.

If we couldn't find another campground further out of town with trees, we would stay here again.

Wifi was pretty much useless in the evenings and very slow the rest of the time. I had to go to McDonalds down the road to get some work done. We camped at Rapid City RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
