This is one of the best RV Parks we have stayed at, and we have stayed in many. The sites are concrete pads, lots of room among sites and the views of the rolling hills spectacular. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

We moved to this park after we canceled 2 days at the Spearfish City Campground. This is another one of those beautiful parks with all the bells and whistles. Private bathrooms with showers. Clean. Roomy sites. All the other good things that people have already said. We stayed 2 days in May with the park pretty much empty. It is an easy hop to Sturgis. The freeway and fuel are very close with easy access. Good wifi, cell signal and cable TV. WOW! We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

***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. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Overall Rating:

Very nice campground located a few miles east of Spearfish. Interior roads are all paved and easy to navigate. Site are concrete and level. We had some issues with the electricity at our first site, but moved after the first day and did not have any other problems. WiFi worked OK (slow when there are lots of campers in the park). Cable had a large number of channels. Both Verizon & ATT had a good signal in the park. Bathrooms & showers were great. We stayed for an entire month and so the rate reflects the monthly discount. We used this located to visit the local attractions in western South Dakota and northeastern Wyoming. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

A mostly quiet campground out in the countryside between Spearfish and Sturgis. There is noticeable truck noise during the weekdays on US 85 (there's a quarry a few miles south of the campground). Good width on the asphalt access roads. Sites are mostly level concrete pads with asphalt entry and exit. Generous spacing between sites filled with grass and relatively young trees. Each site includes a picnic table on a concrete pad. Power ok, water great (110 psi), sewer ok. Note the utilities are right up against the edge of the concrete parking pad. Given the closeness of the utilities, big rigs should use extra care getting in as the concrete pad is only about 10' wide. Wifi is problematic. The campground wifi has decent signal with speed ranging from adequate to very poor (slower in the early to mid evenings as usual). Verizon was 2-3 bars with speed ranging from good to abysmal (again slow in the evening). What makes the wifi problematic is that these performance levels were with the campground only 10% to 20% full. TMobile was unavailable. No problem with satellite access, although this may change in 10 years or so as the trees mature. Cardboard recycling on site (only 1 container just north of the office). Good road bike riding within the campground and pretty decent along the shoulders of US 85 heading south from the campground. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Have stayed her a number of times of the past few years. Improvements are being made. Roads have been resealed and remarked. Signs are upon each row showing the numbered sites on that row. There are some split rail fences along the overflow parking areas. The dead trees have been cut and some trees replanted. Seems like all picnic tables are new. Service is still excellent. Only thing that needs attention is the large number of holes in the dog park in which a running dog could break a leg (might put a pile of dirt and shovel there for the dog owners to use). We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a new service station at Exit 17 adjacent to the RV park. However it is set up primarily for automobiles. A motorhome or 5er probably could not get to the pumps. (Quite a design flaw.) If heading toward Rapid City, there is a convenient Conoco station at the Piedmont exit.

Very nice RV park with lots of upscale amenities. We liked it so well that we extended our stay by 2 days. Our dogs enjoyed the walking trail. It is surprising that they do not pick up trash at the site since it is a resort. Also, not all sites are level. Our front tires were off the ground, as was the RV beside us. Next time we will be more careful about what site to request. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Very nice. Concrete pads and paved interior roads. Nicely manicured grounds. Large park and sites are nicely placed with room between. Nice clubhouse. Personnel were great. Only complaint is wifi. It just didn't cut it as it was either weak or slow. Had to use cellular. We'll stay again soon. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects one week stay, pay for 6 and the 7th is free. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. The grounds were clean and well-manicured. Showers were individual complete bathrooms in a larger building that also housed the laundry. The office staff was delightful, very friendly and helpful, taking their time with each guest. They had a nice gift shop, a little eating area with coffee and pastries, and some grocery staples including frozen sandwiches and a decent wine selection. We look forward to staying here again in the future. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Although a bit pricey, this is one of the nicest RV park we have been in, The sites are level and paved. There is good distance between the sites and that are long enough to accommodate our 40-foot RV as well as our toad. This park is in the Black Hills, near Deadwood, SD. so needless to say there is much to do in the surrounding area. Although a bit pricey, this RV park is so nice, we would stay here again.

I rarely give a 10, there is usually a complaint to mention, normally the WiFi signal or lack of recreation. This campground is clean, well maintained and has lots of recreation (swimming pool, basketball court, tennis courts, volleyball, horse shoe, and playground). There's even a golf course across the road. The staff is friendly. They offer propane fill service. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

A beautiful RV Resort. Our site was an end pull through and very spacious. Lots of room around the area to play catch with my grandson. The pools were large and well kept. The main office was large and inviting. Roads were very easy to navigate with the largest of motorhomes. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

This is a very large park. We arrived during the week before the 4th of July weekend and park was not very full. By the end of the week it was full. The swimming pool area is huge and very nicely done. The landscaping was well done, although the grass was a little long in some areas. Lots of playground equipment. Concrete pads and blacktop roads. There are only two community bathhouses with laundry. Only two washers/dryers in each and while the bathhouse was never full, it was well used and after about 10:00 AM needed to be cleaned from so much use. A suggestion would be an additional bathhouse closer to the center of the park. This is truly an RV resort, sites are kind of close together but adequate. It is close to the interstate and very short drive to Deadwood and Sturgis. WiFi and cable were good although WiFi was very slow during peak usage. Nice patio area with picnic table. We booked on line and there was no discount offered, however when I asked, they did give us the Good Sam discount. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Deadwood is about 7 miles away, easy access to interstate. Registration area is very nice and sold wine and beer. There is a small restaurant as well; we did not eat in it. There was entertainment in the pool area at least one night. Staff was friendly and helpful, even had quarters for the laundry. I would recommend this park to anyone traveling to the Deadwood SD area. It is a little far from Mt. Rushmore, etc. however we had not intended to go there anyway.
