It's always a pleasure to stay at Chris's Camp. It is a must stop for us anytime we are traveling through on I-90. The hosts are the nicest and ensure everything is perfect. The pull through sites are long and level and the hookups are in all the right places. Our site is open enough for satellite reception. Close to the highway but without the highway noise. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed Chris' Camp. Wonderful dip in the pool after a day riding our bicycles. Good access to biking and hiking trails. The owner is friendly and competent. This is a lovely park. I'm ready to go back right now. Worth every penny, and we are penny pinchers. Cash or checks only. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

The Spearfish bike trails are great and will take you to the center of town. Spearfish Canyon is beautiful to drive or bike, with a good shoulder for riding.

We needed a place to park while visiting Deadwood. We happened to see this place just off the interstate. We called and the host quoted me $39/night for Elec. & H2O as well as $42/night for Elec./H2O/Sewer and said she would show us around and we could pick our spot. When we showed up we were shown 7 spots and we chose #24. It was right by a shower/bathroom and just around the corner from the nice pool. The showers are 25 cents, but one quarter does it. Our spot was level and the connections were good. We picked a $42 spot, but when my wife paid, we were charged $46/night. I'm not sure why the increase, but we let it go. We found the grounds, pool, showers and bathrooms to be very clean. The hosts were friendly and the site we had was secluded and quiet. The wi-fi was good, but not extremely reliable. We were very happy with the location and the short drive to Deadwood. They even had a petting / feeding zoo that was fun to watch as the kids fed the animals. I feel like this place could get very busy, especially in July, and get real tight. I also didn't care for the direction given by the host to back my trailer in. Overall, a great stay and great hosts for our visit. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Travel Trailer.

I was surprised to see that we have not been here since 2012. That 8/12 review is still pretty accurate except for the fact that the petting zoo is now open. After over a week on the road, we decided to settle into a full service park with lots (pools, Wi-Fi, cable TV, B-ball, etc.) to keep us busy for a 2 night stay and a full day of just being in the park. This park fit that bill. We had a FHU, pull through site that was level and satellite friendly. Most sites have too much tree coverage to get satellite TV. The WiFi was good enough for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing). For us, he park is even within walking distance of Walmart and several franchise restaurants. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

We arrived in Spearfish a day early and didn't have reservations at our destination, so we gave Chris' camp a shot. Friendly office staff and host who drove us in the golf cart to check out possible sites for our 43' coach. A real mix of sites in this park with lots of nice, shaded tent camping spots, many small to medium size spots, but there didn't seem to be many overly long sites that would fit a big rig and tow. We ended up in pull through site K, and based on the suggestion of the host, drove in backward so we had a nice side yard view of the hills and their barnyard zoo area. No parking for the tow on our spot, so host said to use the site behind us. We had clear sky for satellite reception, but that will be questionable for most sites based on the many trees. The host also mentioned we could let our dogs run in the field near our site, which was a very nice offer, but due to the high temps, we didn't partake. My only complaint was one host who was a bit pushy in trying to sell us rv maintenance products. Lots of rv park choices in the area, so can't say we'll be back, but overall a decent place to stay. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Recommended by a friend who lives in the area. Extremely organized as the camp has been the family for 4 generations. There are sites to accommodate all types of camping. Near I90 yet quiet. Lots of trees for shade. Staff is 5 star with assisting with every need. Site escorts are experienced. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Office is very nice and helpful. I was there before and during a rally and found the park very nice. We had a back in and it was just long enough. All in all a very nice place. They usually have some young animals in a corral for children to enjoy. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

This is a great park with great owners and staff. We held a rally here in June of 2018. We had 49 rigs. The roads and sites are very well maintained. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. The owners could not have been any more accommodating to us and our members. They went out of their way to make our rally a big success. They went above what we could have expected. We would come back and do another rally here without hesitation. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park has everything an RV'er would want and all the amenities. The couple who own the campground are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. It is easy off and on the interstate, and easy entrance and exit the park. We got there when a car show was going on in Deadwood, and the place was packed. Being this crowded, it was very tight; our slide out was within a foot of our neighbors; also once you got into your site, you had a difficult time getting out. Ask about satellite; some sites are shaded. We would stay here again if in the area but not during an event; we stayed here a week in a 39 foot fifth wheel.
