Stayed here after Labor Day so got a good rate and the park was only about half full. The grounds are well kept and very friendly staff. Most all sites are pull throughs with full hook ups. I was very impressed with the bathrooms, they are all individual rooms with a shower, sink, and shower so you have plenty of privacy. There is a large dog park split into two sections one for small dogs and large dogs. There is also a walking trail. Sites are next to each other but decent spacing between. Wifi was very good as well and had good cell service with AT&T. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Park is along Hwy 85 very close to I-90 and there is a Walmart a couple of exits away along I-90. If you want to visit Deadwood it is less than 10 minutes away.

This was our 2nd stay at Elkhorn Ridge. It is maturing into a very nice campground/resort. We had a mini family reunion and stayed a week. 3 of us in RV's, 2 couples in cabins-all in very close proximity to each other, which was nice of the staff to arrange. Everyone in the family was very happy with this location. Spearfish is a gorgeous town and the whole area offers lots of things to see and do. Elkhorn was the perfect site for our family event . We're already talking about doing it all again next year, and Elkhorn Ridge will absolutely be our choice! We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

This is a well-manicured, high-end & seemingly rather new CG with excellent cement interior roads and cement pads & patio. Large spacious sites, grass surrounds non-cemented pad. Full service plus large, well stocked office/store with many touristy gifts, etc. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

We were here for a motorhome rally and loved this park! Sites are level concrete, streets are paved, large grassy area between sites, very dog friendly, the grounds were well kept & neat, the laundry/bath houses were very clean. The store/office bldg was beautifully done. The employees were pleasant the store well stocked (unbelievable wine collection!), great gifts, Tees, & "tchockies". A delightful stay! We cant wait to go back! Its in the middle of so many attractions. But even if you dont go anywhere the views are great. If you do go, try the Steerfish restaurant in Spearfish-superb!

From the resort we went to: Custer State Park, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument, Bear Country, Spearfish Canyon Scenic Drive, town of Deadwood (lots of casinos), we hit Devils Tower in Wyoming (only 46 miles). Shopping was convenient, restaurants plentiful and good and the roads were great.

For $65 this CG was way over priced. For that amount of money, a camper should be able to get on the WIFI, any time night or day. During busy hours during the day the WIFI was so busy, I could not log on. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Beautiful Resort with great views of the mountains. Stayed 6 days attending an ACA rally. This is a destination resort. Easy on-off from Hwy 85/I-90. Smooth check-in. BIG RIG friendly, easy to navigate smooth asphalt roads. Our Site was a FHU back-in concrete pad with manicured grass and cable (fuzzy almost not viewable). Resort is a mix of PT and back-ins. Large dog park, approx. 100x200 feet and small dog park about half the size. Large pool, tennis, basketball courts, and event center. Baths/laundry room are impeccable. For a large rally the event center is not big enough to seat 250+. Rectangular tables made it very difficult to move (circular tables are better) and acoustics are awful (unable to hold a conversation). The CG store has wine for sale which you can bring to the function because you cannot BYOB due to licensing laws. Easy access to Town of deadwood, Devil's Tower and Custer. Definitely a must stop when in Spearfish. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Stayed there for American Coach Assoc. National Rally. Beautiful resort and sites, all paved streets and pads. Easy access off I 90, new and they are still building. The best campstore I have ever seen with outstanding wine selections, wall of wine. This was important because could purchase a bottle there and bring to the dinners, the wine poured at the rally was bad, license laws preclude outside purchases to be brought inbut buying there was ok. Picturesque All paved streets. Wifi spotty. The activity bldg is not big enough for the size of our group, (200+) tables squashed together and acoustics awful, a barn of sorts. Difficult to talk and move around. Would be ok and more comfortable for less than 100 people. They have a small restaurant for ciffee, etcm we did not eat there. Will be nice if they build a bar & restaurant. If in the area a wonderful resort. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

This park is truly deserving of the "Resort" in their name. Beautiful landscaping, magnificent metal sculptures of various wild animals, spacious grass space between each site, super nice dog run with doggie bags at the enclosure as well as throughout the park, large pool with two hot tubs, meeting room, nice gift shop, trash bins conveniently located with nice wood fences to camouflage, and conveniently located to many wonderful attractions. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful RV resort with asphalt drives and concrete pads and patios at each site with a picnic table. The sites are spacious with room between sites and you have great views of the black hills. There is a swimming pool, hot tub, tennis court, basketball court and walking trail. Park was quiet and no dust and we would definitely stay here again as this is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. WiFi was excellent. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the most beautiful RV Parks we ever stayed at. Very lush green carpet lawn, spacious sites and beautiful setting. Convenient to area attractions. Upon arrival, the water hookup wasn't functioning. Maintenance crew quickly and professionally fixed the problem. Hats off to a model campground setting and staff! The cleanest campground we've seen.

Not far to Belle Fourche (Geographic center of the US), Walmart, Deadwood. Even though our site was next to the road, noise was hardly noticeable. If you book online the AAA / Goodsam discounts don't apply. Better off to call the park directly.

If there was an 11 rating for facilities that would be my rating for Elkhorn Ridge. This is a resort type, or as my wife and I called "country club" type campground. Perfect wide paved roads leading you to your mostly level concrete pad with attached patio with picnic table. The remainder of your site is lush soft grass. It appeared each site had at least one young tree. Full hook ups with great utilities. Unique sewer hook up had 3 different sewer openings to accommodate your rig size easily. Strong Wi-Fi connection without pass code. Elkhorn sits atop an open prairie so there is only shade from your RV or your neighbors. Daytime temps while we visited where mid 80's and windy and cooling down considerably by sunset to the low to mid 60's. Beautiful pool, hot tube and shower facility just behind the main office complex, which also houses a gift shop, store and cafe that offers wonderful breakfast sandwiches and robust coffee's. Elkhorn is a large campground where they have several shower houses that have personal "shower rooms that have a shower, sink, toilet and bench in each". Spotlessly clean daily. No sites have fire pits. The only way to enjoy a campfire is in one of the several community fire pits located towards the rear of the complex. A perfect reasonably priced campground, perhaps. Would we stay here again, never! Our site backed to the major highway Elkhorn is located on. Our first night my wife commented it was like sleeping at a truck stop. Calling Elkhorn a campground is a misnomer. No one camps. This country club is filled with $400K and up large motor homes. It looked like an Entegra Motor Home convention. No cooking outside. No relaxing in a chair reading a book. No family or friends gathered to enjoy the outdoors and each other. They sat in their high dollar rigs all day running their AC's and Aqua Hot's. No waves, no hello's, nothing. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Absolutely wonderful park! Easy to find from I-90. Paved, wide interior roads. Concrete, level pads with picnic tables on concrete patios. Very helpful staff. They have multiple spaces for rigs to park while checking in. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay while visiting the surrounding areas.

This was our second stay at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort. We enjoy our time at this resort and it is the nicest RV campground in the area in terms of amenities. We have a 43 foot motorhome and know that we will be able to get a pull-through site that allows us to easily accommodate our coach. The sites are long enough, but just barely wide enough. That said, this resort has a wonderful pool, a café and great staff. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.
