We stayed in this campground for 5 weeks in our coach. The staff are beyond helpful and ever so nice. The grounds are kept up beautifully. We did not use the laundry facilities, showers, or bathrooms but I did go in each of them just to check them out, and they were spotless. The site we were in on top of the hill (#52) was a really long pull-through. We are 43' with a 25' enclosed trailer, and we fit easily and still had room to park the Jeep. A bit tight though to our neighbors. Small patch of grass. Took some jockeying to get a satellite signal. Not able to put out the awning due to a large tree, but it shaded us well. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great location for riding motorcycles! The black hills are so beautiful. Tough area though for cycling, a real challenge to ride those hills.

Park is fairly large with lots of shade trees yet does have some open sites for satellite users. Sites seem to be of varying sizes but they do have a number of large sites (pull through and back-in) that will handle big rigs and tow vehicle. Roads are paved, sites are gravel or grass with grass in between each. I felt the big rig sites were too close together. Our site was level. Wi-Fi was free and worked well during our stay. They have two nice size pools. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were here to renew our South Dakota licenses so the owners were very helpful in preparing the necessary document for us to submit and giving us advice on the local DMV (Wednesday only). Nice place to stay to visit Spearfish, Sturgis and Deadwood. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Check in very efficient. Escort to site is a nice service. Laundry clean. Didn't use pool but looked nice. Park is more conducive to small fifth wheels and campers. Very, very tight getting into and out of site with motor home. Parked cars all over the place. Picnic tables old and with so little space they are just in the way. A real obstacle course driving in and out of park. So close to neighbor that we could not use slides on one side and still be able to walk between to get to car in back. Barely enough room to park tow vehicle without being in the road. The park was very full, probably nice place if not so crowded. Nowhere level to hook tow vehicle when leaving. Would not stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Loop through Spearfish Canyon, through Lead and into Deadwood is a nice drive.

Made a reservation in early May for a "premium" site-which included wi-fi, cable, sewer, near one of the 3 pools in the park. Wi-fi was nonexistent, good cable, sewer fine, several blocks from a pool. Biker week was coming the week after we got there. Very disappointed in the site. Will not return.

The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. There is a petting "farm" with baby goats, lambs and cows which was very nice to stop at each day! We stayed here two weeks to explore the area and it was a perfect location for getting around. The laundry was well kept, the grounds taken care of and people friendly. The only issue we had was the speed of the vehicles going through the park, including the golf carts of the people working there. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Site 105 was the best site with no one camping on the driver side. The camp provides three scenic drives scenarios and all three were very enjoyable and highly recommended.

Great reception when we arrived after a long haul from Billings. The owners keep the campground in excellent condition. Good facilities, fast WiFi and a great place to stay. Get in early for Sturgis. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Check in was very easy even though they were training their daughter. We were taken to several available spots and then was escorted to the one we chose. Sites were gravel with a picnic table and grass. Owners made sure ever thing was working and we were happy with our stay. They have two heated pools and we were given the temp. of each at check in. They do not take credit or debit cards but will take personal checks. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping is close by as well as places to eat. Be sure to take trip thru Spearfish Canyon beautiful road trip.

Good park for the area. Very clean and well maintained facilities. Hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. Even has a couple of kennels where you can leave your dog for the day. Downsides are some sites are very narrow particularly in the lower campground area. WiFi in this area is basically none existent due to where the closest transmitter is located. Would stay here again but would ask for a site in a different section. Some sites throughout the park also have some issues with front to back slope. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Spearfish Canyon is worth the drive. Western Heritage Center is not worth the time.

Check in went a little slow, as owner tried to find us a pull through, which was what we asked for when we made the reservation, 5 months before.
We were led to a pull through site, on the lower level, which was partially shaded & fairly level. It was however barely long enough for us once we unloaded our toad.
When I asked where to park the toad, I was told to park it in a small back in site behind us. Sites in this area were extremely tight, our picnic table was 2' from our slideout, & extended into the neighbors site.
We did have full hookups, of the list of cable channels, we could only get 7 of them, some were duplicates, the WIFI was weak & slow. The laundry was clean, with washers for $2. And dryers for $1., but had to run twice to dry the clothes.
Didn't use the bathrooms or showers, so can't comment on them.
With the number of other campgrounds in the area, we probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

The park has lots of grass and the site we set up on was all grass. It was pretty unlevel but we were able to get our lego blocks out and adjust. It did make the step into the RV a bit high though. The front desk was very accommodating and gave us several different options then took me around on his cart to look at the spots before I chose. There was lots of space between RVs but the park was also not very full. We would stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff is super friendly and helpful. The roads and sites are gravel. There is plenty of room and full hook ups, as well a number of pull-through sites. The Wi-Fi and cable service are excellent. Kids love the heated swimming pool. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive beautiful Spearfish Canyon. Visit old Fort Meade Calvary Museum and Bear Butte near Sturgis, SD. There is much history to be found concerning the Lakota and General Custer. Deadwood is only about 17 miles away and you can see an old fashion shoot out, as well as visiting the actual saloon where Wild Bill Hickok was shot while holding aces and eights. The old fish hatchery in Spearfish is neat, especially for kids.

This is a wonderful park. Easy access to Spearfish and I-90. Very strong Verizon 4g signal, fast campground WiFi allowed us to stream programming from our Dish Hopper at home, and to use our laptops without a hitch. Laundry room was very clean and in good repair. The park was quiet, AC power was great to the site (measured with a meter). Cable TV was also provided. The owners were very helpful and wanted our stay to be enjoyable. We stayed at a slow time of year, so I can't speak for busy summer times, but the owners are clearly spending the money needed to keep this park in great condition. We drove down to Crazy Horse, and Mount Rushmore one day, and visited Deadwood the next. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Near Sturgis. Bike week rate $100 cash or check only. Very nice park. Easy access off I-90 at Exit 14. Paved interior roads. Two swim pools. We had site 11: good hookups, level, good wifi, shade, everything great. Well run, felt like well-liked family member. Food service in park. Best personal guidance into a site that I have ever experienced. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

This campground is easy to find and they have great signs leading you off of I-90 to the campground. This is a wonderful place to stay. We were given a choice of several sites when we arrived and were taken by golf cart to view them before selecting the site we preferred. We were then escorted to that site. We had a long, level, shaded pull-through site near the pool, laundry, and bathhouse which was very convenient. The roads are paved and easy to maneuver. Sites are gravel. Chris' is located approximately 2 miles from Spearfish Canyon (a "must-see") and 10 miles to the Deadwood area. Walmart and other stores and restaurants are within 1 mile. We had good Wi-Fi for two days but could not connect on the weekend. The laundry was clean with good machines. We stayed here 4 nights in a 33' rig and highly recommend this park. The rate quoted reflects a Good Sam discount. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Cabins and a wide variety of sites are available at this campground. Small, grassy sloped sites may be only suitable for tents but some level, gravel sites can accommodate large RVs. Most sites are closely spaced and offer no sense of privacy. The laundries, restrooms, and pool were clean and inviting. AT&T phone and data service were good in the area. Basic utilities were good but the WiFi was very slow and scarcely usable. The price includes a Good Sam discount. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.
