30 RV Parks near Spearfish, South Dakota

First of all, do NOT use your GPS to find this place!!! Unfortunately we were on the road at the time we booked, and had very bad cellular and wifi, so we did not get to see much information other than our confirmation number. Therefore we also did not get instructions on how to get to the park. We hit a dead end and a closed gate and almost had to unhook our tow in the rain. Long story short, we were finally able to get a call back from the park with instructions and directions. The campground advertises wifi, but we are apparently here too "early in the season" and there is none. But the cable TV is GREAT! My ATT cellular connection is pretty good. We specifically requested a "premium" site, which was described as creek side and more private, and ours was the "last" one available. We are quickly finding that there is ALWAYS something they don't tell you. At this place, this "last" site was available probably because it was the one closest to some kind of power plant that makes a lot of noise continuously. Oh well. We aren't exactly creek side, because across from us, between us and the creek, are the tent campers. They are the ones who are actually "creek side". I think I probably paid extra for this site, and looking around, there really isn't much special about it. Most of the sites here look pretty nice. The park itself is very beautiful. We are here in May, and the weather has been beautiful for the last week on our trip from California, until today. It is freezing cold and there will be thunderstorms for the 4 days that we were planning to visit Deadwood and Sturgis. No fault of anyone's. We purposely chose this time of year because getting RV sites is not a problem and the roads and campgrounds are not crowded because many kids are still in school. We will deal with the weather. - Sharon and Gary

RV park is in a very well kept park. Reservation was easy to make over the phone. Despite two washer changes, our water hookup had small drip. Maintenance fixed it first thing in the morning when we were notified them. We really liked our stay here! Some sites are close together --the only downside to staying here but everything else is so nice! - sp123

I arrived in Spearfish on Tuesday afternoon, two days after the end of the Sturgis motorcycle rally, and spent four nights. The campground had lots of openings and I had reserved only the day before. I selected Spearfish because I could rent a car close by (but rather expensive), and after checking in and parking in my site I walked the mile or so to the Enterprise Car Rental office.
The sites are very close together, probably because this is right in the mouth of Spearfish Canyon and space is quite limited. Sites are generally back to back, with power, water and sewer being bunched together and paired up between the sites.
There are lots of trees, probably too many as I had to be extremely careful backing into my site because of the large trees on either side right at the road. I found the campground well maintained and the showers and restrooms were very clean, but there were some quirks. The doors on the toilet stalls were so close to the bowls that it was very difficult to get into a stall and shut the door. The doors needed to swing out rather than in. Also, the digital locks on the restroom doors were not operative.... until my last night, when I discovered that the CG staff had activated them that day and I did not have the combination. of course the office was closed till morning.
There is a laundry mat about 5 blocks from the campground entrance, just past the Police Dept and the Parks and Recreation shops, and I think this is the neatest, cleanest, best maintained 24/7 laundry mat I have ever encountered. Spearfish creek flows through the campground and on through town. There is a developed greenspace with walks and benches along the creek, making it very pleasant to walk in the evenings.
The Fish Hatchery and the adjacent city park lend a very nice atmosphere to the campground and made it a great place to base out of for my touring of the Black Hills. - CharlesinGA

This KOA has been newly renovated this last year and the owners did an EXCELLENT job. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. The Laundry was clean, well lit, and large. Although I did not use the showers I did look at them and they are as nice as any you would find in any high dollar athletic club. I will happily stay there again and I fully encourage anyone else to stay at this KOA. It is easily accessible to downtown Spearfish. - Avalon_13

This is a nice KOA! Unfortunately we were parked on site-A which is a grass site behind the office where several sites are stacked one on top of the other. We had to drive the entire park to reach site-A and we had to do the same thing to depart. The exit from site-A is guarded by a large pine tree that a Big Rig cannot maneuver around! In addition, when the evening Ice Cream Social started in the office our campsite was the path to the Ice Cream! If you're driving a Big Rig tell them you do not want the grass sites behind the office. All other elements of the park worked well with the exception of the campers parked with their trucks stuck out in the roadway. - Stealth01

This is the kind of KOA that sells the KOA brand. Very clean, well maintained, easy to navigate. Dog Park and a trail to walk the dog. Convenient to Hwy 90 but quiet. I like the convenience of KOA emailing me confirmations and receipts. My one negative on KOAs is the 11:00 check out. The standard for RV Parks and hotels is 12:00 so making it an hour earlier just seems unfriendly. Its not like they have to make up beds for the people checking in at 2:00 so . . . Why? The park is close to town and shopping. Safeway Supermarket --- nice change from going to Walmarts for groceries. I marked the park a 9 rather than 10 for the very bad WIFI. We were there 4 days and even when the park had lots of open spots it was hard to connect. - UllaPool

We stayed there during the Sturgis Rally and have done so for the last 5 years. We camped there in a 42 foot RV and use 50 amp service. They have the best price during the Rally anywhere close to Sturgis. They have just added new sites all with 50 amp service. The owners checked on us at least 3 time during our 8 day stay. The owner are very nice people. This is what I would call a mom and pop campground. It has two showers stalls for the men but I never had to wait on one. - Gary Shamel

The owners were friendly and accommodating. However, the RV park was "unkempt" and dirty looking. The grounds were not mowed with grass and weeds growing. Gravel drive and campsites. There seemed to be a lot of permanent residents in older trailers. Just not a place I would care to return to. I was there one night. - IllinoisFlatlander

Centennial Campground is a nice little park, conveniently located on a frontage road right off I-90. The staff/owner couple were very helpful. For example, when I asked if they knew where we could drop off the recycling we'd been collecting for several days, the lady owner went above and beyond by calling around town to try to find us a drop off center. And the man owner came out to help us level our RV. Very friendly owners, super nice. The campground itself is a big, grassy, flat field. Very pretty. There are a few full timers here but it was 90% empty when we were here. We were the only non-full timers when we stayed. The laundry is fine and was clean; 3 washers for $1.25 each and $1 for 50 minutes for the dryers. What I especially love is the way the owners have an honor system for using their laundry supplies. There is a little cup and they ask you to pay "20 cents for a cup full of detergent, 10 cents for a dryer sheet" etc. Just very home town and thoughtful. The bathrooms and showers are clean, maybe a bit old style but the owners add paper towels and nice smelling soaps to make it nice. This is a no-frills type place but very reasonably priced at $24 when we stayed. They don't take Good Sam at such a low price, I can't blame them. We stayed 2 nights while hiking nearby parks. - TNTRV

This is the second time we stayed at Chris' Camp and we will continue to stay here when we visit the Black Hills area. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The campground is on a hill side overlooking Spearfish. The sites are spacious and well taken care of, most have shade. Cable TV has about 30 channels. Beautiful area plenty to see and do, we were just far enough from the city and highway to make it peaceful and quiet. - GordoKat

Really nice park. Lots of amenities under shaded sites. The only dings is that the water pressure was very low <35psi, and the WiFi didn't work. Management is awesome. We would definitely stay there again. - newbies2016

Blacktop & concrete roads and RV sites have full concrete pads. Most sites are pull thru with limited back in sites. Full hookups at all sites. Staff is very friendly and always available. This resort has rental cabins. Basketball, tennis and pool all very well maintained. Park is only a few miles from Deadwood and just a little farther to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse, Custer State Park and Sturgess. Devils Tower in Wyoming is only an hour or so away. - JoeP

***The ONLY reason I didn't give it a 10 rating is that there needs to be more lighting. Truly the ONLY complaint.*** We pulled in late so didn't have any face-to-face interaction with office staff but they were very helpful on the phone. It was easy to find the park and Google map instructions were accurate. I don't remember our site number but most of the sites were long pull-throughs. The site was paved and level. The roads are wide and easy to navigate. The park, itself, is lovely. The name says it's a resort and it definitely lives up to that designation. They have spent time and money on landscaping and lovely sculptures of deer, elk, bison, bears and an Indian bust. There is a very nice, large, fenced dog run. - MT RVers

A+ resort. Beautiful surroundings. Location perfect for seeing the sights of the Black Hills. We were on Lot 110 and it was very nice. Very nice little store and gift shop and all the facilities very nice. Couldn't ask for more. Very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend. - Kerch

Some of the negative reviews I read are really nit-picky. It's a little steep coming in, but no big deal. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. The cable TV provides lots of clear channels. The wifi is very good. The trolley runs every hour (not every 2 hours as someone stated). And although the return schedule shows only until 9:45 the driver said you can catch a trolley back to the KOA as late as 1:00am....you just have to catch one and tell them where you're going. As others stated, though, the sites are quite small and tight together. But everyone staying there spends most of their time in town so this didn't seem very important to us. The pool was fine but I would have liked to see it cleaned a little better. But it felt pretty good after a hot day of walking around Deadwood. The washrooms (yes, I'm Canadian) and showers were clean and well cared for. I felt the price was about $10 high, but overall we liked this campground. - Randy Beaulieu

I've had good at KOA's but this one is not a very good one for the money.
The tough navigation in...the steep hill to climb....the very narrow and close hillside pull thoughs...and all facilities at the bottom or top of the hill made it a hard hike to anywhere. Just after Labor Day...the pool was drained and the "shuttle to town" had stopped running, even though the shuttle WAS running in town. Apparently...after Labor Day...this stop is dropped. Suggest checking with KOA outside of peak season. Water and electric were fine...cable was great...internet spotty.
Town was nice...but lots of stuff ended at Labor day that would be of interest to families.
Ok...but not up to usual KOA standards IMO. - Camaraderie

This was worst park I have ever stayed at. Packed us in right up against other campers. Spots available but was told they would be occupied later that night. Next morning the spots sat empty as we were rubbing elbows with our neighbors.
No picnic tables or grills/firebird. No room to move!! Dog park was over grown and nasty. Could not wait to leave. - JackieW662

Stayed here in 40 ft coach after Sturgis Rally. There was only one other camper here and 2 monthly's. Spaces are close together with lots of tent sites. Weak Wifi: unable to use. Gravel roads and sites. Would stay again for couple nights. Lots to see in the area. - alfa05

We stayed at Wyatt's Campground while in Belle Fourche to attend the Black Hills Roundup Rodeo. The RV park is just outside of Belle Fourche and the park only had a few others staying at the time we visited. The owner was very friendly and we sat around and shot the breeze a bit. It appears they primarily make their business during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and then basically run near empty the rest of the time. There is an active rail line alongside the park, but we enjoyed watching the occasional train pass by. There is a small stream that contained some trout but we did not try to catch any. He said catch and release, and we are more fish for some dinner types. Quiet, peaceful and laid back. Could imagine if the place were full it would feel awfully crowded because every square inch of it was numbered for camping, often just a patch of grass would be divided up into plots for tents and such. Overall we had a nice experience here and would go back if in the area. Verizon service was sufficient. - Stax

Great little park, quiet, rural, many trees, level sites. Did not use the laundry but it seemed adequate. Manager was very friendly, led us in, then provided a wealth of information on what to do and eat. Some very friendly dogs acted as social hosts. - Old Geezer

Stayed here for a month. There is nothing fancy, and it only has electric and water, with a dump station. Essentially it is a parking lot which was designed for the rodeo grounds events. Sites are close, with gravel pads and a grassy strip next to them. Electric is on the wrong side and the water is shared between sites with separate hose bibs. Staff are very friendly and helpful and do their best to keep the grounds up. Bathrooms and showers were super clean.
Very convenient to downtown Deadwood and casinos. Trolley picks up at the museum next door. This is definitely not a five star campground and somewhat pricey given the lack of amenities, but it met our needs for the month and we would come back. - road gypsy

This "campground" is a parking lot beside the city road-work depot, with water, electric, and the world's brightest spotlights directly over your rig. The main quality is that the location is an easy walk to town if you don't have a second vehicle. The showers were also new, but the niceness of them pales after the dreariness of the lot. - Frayedshoestrings

Nice RV Park, inside the City of Deadwood. I liked the free (for folks that stay here) shuttle to and from the campsite to downtown. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Cleanest bathrooms and showers I've seen at a campground with no quarters needed for the showers. Nice and helpful staff. For the price you can't go wrong. - cablemn

We choose this park based on their web site that promoted trout ponds and a cafe. When we called the morning of our stay, we were told there was "one site available" so we reserved it. In about an hour , we received a call that due to the heat the office would be closed. We arrived around 4 PM to find everything closed including trout ponds and cafe. In addition,we were the only travelers and there were actually about 10 vacant spots. Of the 6 other sites with RVs in them, one had an occupant and the others appeared to be in storage. This place has taken an attractive natural spot and filled it with a smorgasbord of junk. The restrooms had new roofs, but looked as if they were finished off with cheap surplus materials, plus they were about two blocks from the RV sites. No cell coverage and no Wi-Fi. Although every site had a sign advising you that dogs had to be on a leash and cleaned up after, the owner, without any greeting or pleasantries, found it necessary to come and verbally give us the same instructions the minute we got there. We have often paid less and gotten far more, so we would not stay here again. - judb

Wonderful little roadside campground in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. This campground is family owned and operated. Staff is helpful and friendly. Stocked ponds with good fishing. They will even cook and clean your fish for you. ATV riding right out of the park on majestic forest trails. ATV rentals and tours were available. Trout Haven also offers 7 camping cabins quaintly decorated in a lodge style, and two tepees This resort is very family friendly and even has a bounce house for the kids. The food in the restaurant is awesome! We rated this resort a seven due to no pool, poor Wi-Fi connectivity, no TV, no cell phone service, and out dated restroom facilities. If you are seeking a low tech escape with awesome ATV riding this is your place! Trout Haven is near Deadwood, Rapid City, and all other Black Hills attractions. If you have kids, we highly recommend Old MacDonald's Farm, Bear Country, Story Book Island, and the President's Slide. - grammyandaugiebeers

Expensive for what you get. No tv, no cable, lots are right on top of one another. Our site was level. Best thing going for the park is its proximity to Deadwood and Lead. - Meme508

We have stayed here many times in the last 10 years. See my 8/15 review for a description of the facilities and amenities. II see that several recent reviewers really slammed this park. The only thing that I really don NOT agree with is the complaint about the walk to downtown Deadwood. While US 85 does not have adequate space to walk on the east side of the road, the west side of the road has sidewalks. All you have to do is cross the road! Even better, cross 85 at the entrance road up to the RV park and you can take the less than 1 mile of smoothly graveled or later asphalt section of the MIckelson Trail into town. As an older couple (we are almost 150 between us) we have walked to and from downtown dozens of times. Since the park was not very full during our stay (maybe 25 other RVs), the bathrooms and showers were always clean. Also, the WIFI worked fine for out entire stay. I still don't care for the despotic way the owner runs this place. When reserving our spot and during check in, we requested a roof satellite spot. We got to our assigned spot to find the branch of a tree over much of our roof. After half an hour of trying several different positions, we had to go back to the office and get another spot. The owner acted like we did not know what we were doing but, grudgingly, let us move to a more open site. I got reception immediately at the new site. Like many people at this site, this guy insists he is right just because he is the boss. The pool furniture is still pathetic. 6 of 7 chaise lounge chairs were broken in one way or another. Several had been bolted/screwed into the horizontal position because the arms to hold up the back section of the chair were broken. Many customers (especially motorcyclists and hot rod types (classic cars are going to be here this coming weekend)) still drive too fast and recklessly. The owner still does NOTHING! There is just one large dumpster in the middle of the park and NO recycling. - Jerry S

Front desk person was cranky. I made a reservation two days for two nights earlier and when checking changed my mind and wanted to stay only one. Was told I would still have to pay for two. I said if I only made a one night reservation and paid for one, only to want to stay two I could pay for one night at a time. Doesn't seem right. Sites are short for long rigs. Wifi doesn't work at site. - moblo1
