Very friendly staff. Large, open campsites. Covered pavilion area, kitchen area and laundry. There are a couple shower houses located throughout the campground. Sites are grassy and pretty level. All dirt roads, so it is very dusty. There aren't a lot of frills here, but it's not a deal breaker as the staff is so gracious and friendly. In addition, with so much to do in the Black Hills, you aren't spending much time at the campground. - Sam818

Good value with Passport America. Has large, grassy sites, a well maintained park with great internet and TV. We would definitely stay again. Park is closing for the season on 8/31/10. - Silentecho
May 2011 - $10.00
A great boon docking park. Beautiful view of Bear Butte. Lots of birds, fairly level gravel sites with plenty of room and lots of grass. Some trees, but mostly open. Ducks and pelicans frequent the adjacent lake. Good AT&T wireless and air card signal, good TV reception on antenna. It was just us and the Camp Host on this early season date. Would definitely camp here again. - Sonic

This KOA has very tight spaces. Spaces were muddy. Dogs were constantly barking. I would not stay here again. - blkmtn
May 2015 - $23.00
Stayed overnight. Not recommend when its been raining because of mud; however, summer time would be a good time to stay. Sites close together but manageable. Lots of toys (suv's) and equipment laying around. Looks more like a home than a business; however, the Passport America rate makes this tolerable. Would not pay full price to stay here. - redhead777

The office was closed on arrival, instructions were easily read - park and register when staff returned. The RV park is under new management, has been cleaned up and re-landscaped (according to the owner/manager). We were in the winter season so showers and washrooms were not open but the owner allowed us to use a staff washroom. Friendly interactions, but a bit pricey for the reduced services available in this 'off' season. - Ken and Barb
Aug 2016 - $40.00
Stayed in one of the smaller sites but it fit our 40-MH and gave us some shade. Park amenities include outside pool and hot tub both open until 10 PM.
Restrooms are meticulously maintained and cared for by paid staff. Wednesday evenings the Beer Garden is open for a jam session with local musicians playing from about 6:30 until they wear themselves out. These are professionals as well as amateurs playing all types of music. Wide open sites some with private hot tubs and patios with tables, chairs, and propane grills. Lots of turkeys and deer wander throughout the well-maintained campgrounds.
Our only complaint was that most of the sites were not level. We saw many rigs with the wheels 6-8 inches off the ground, as were ours. - Wanders
Jul 2016 - $47.00
Park a little pricey, but clean and level sites. Easy in and out. Found a new section of the park while we were taking a walk, that we weren't told about by park staff. It was occupied, but not fully, and away from the main campground. Some sites had hot tubs, propane grills, and small dinettes. Curious. I would stay here again, but I would have to ask about the new section. - Rick Frazier

Came for the Sturgis motorcycle rally. Booked in Dec 2014, however campground owner called us a few weeks before our trip to let us know there was a problem with the size of our rig/overbooking situation. We were very clear as to how large our coach was when we made the reservation and he didn't indicate at that time that there would be a problem. The owner asked if we could be flexible with our dates and come several days sooner and then he would be able to accomodate us for our reservation. We were able to do this, however the owner informed us we could only stay for 8 nights instead of the 10 we had booked and paid for and he refused to refund us the two nights. He also refused to refund us the difference in price between the rally week price and the rest of the year price. In addition, he is very rude and has absolutely no people skills. Instead of politely pointing out his campground rules, he screams them at you and then threatens to throw you out. This man has no business dealing with the public and should put someone else in charge of running his campground. It's very clear that he's all about the immediate dollar and has no concern for repeat business. He also operates his campground much like a dictatorship and is demeaning to his staff in front of paying guests. There are plenty of other campgrounds in the area that would be more than happy and appreciative of receiving your business. Campsites are graveled, not level and very cramped. Free WIFI is advertised, but we could never get it to work. Campground does offer a small pool and hot tub, although it wasn't very hot. There are several shower houses, a laundry and pavilion area. There is nice grass, a few trees and picnic tables at each site. The main road in is paved, but remaining campground roads are gravel. Overall, it's a decent campground but the rudeness and shafting just can't be overlooked. I would NEVER stay here again. - Sam818
Sep 2016 - $20.00
We were a full month after the rally so the campground was virtually empty. We had a long level gravel pull thru on the lower level. Wifi worked great as there was no one else on it. Verizon had a strong signal as well. Location is great for visiting several attractions in this area. I can't speak to what this place would be like during the rally, but by early September, this is a great place to base your travels for a while. No amenities aimed at kids in the park, e.g. no pool or playground. Park closes this year on Sept 15th and it's for sale. Easy access from the interstate from either direction but you drive through parts of town. No cable TV but satellite access is good. Virtually no grass for walking pets. - Danno

We were looking for a CG walking distance from Sturgis with full hookups for a 1 night stay. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in late August.
This CG met all our requirements. It's a 5 minute walk downtown. It includes full hookups, and laundry. Sites are arrayed across 3 levels, the higher levels having a view of Sturgis. The sites on the main level are all gravel. There are a few trees, most sites are full sun. There is wifi access, and good ATT and Verizon coverage. - dsvt

This is our second stay here. We had a fairly level, gravel, pull through, FHU site on the main (lowest) level of the park. There is no cable TV but most sites are satellite friendly. The WiFi worked fine until it got dark. This was a bit surprising since, like 2 years ago, there were on a dozen or so other RVs in this large park. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry (4 washers and dryers inside each bathroom) were fine except for 2 dryers being out of order in the men's bathroom. I can't imagine what they are like when this place has 100 sites occupied. I saw no recycling. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. For anyone interested, the park is for sale. - Jerry S

This is a great place to stay in Sturgis. We were up on the top level with spectacular views of the Black Hills & the city. It is not busy at this time of the year which made it even nicer. Paved road to the top has wide turns and sites are gravel and very level. Pull in lot which gives you a great view. 50 amps. Personnel was very friendly & helpful. Everything is very clean. Great location!!! - Freedom Bus
Aug 2013 - $58.00
This campground is only open during the Sturgis Bike Rally. It is a little way out of Sturgis itself, but the free Da Bus service makes for an easy and fun way to get into town and the other popular bars along the way. The sites are huge at 50 foot wide - plenty of room for your rig and trailer! All hook ups worked well. The Eye Candy Saloon had nightly entertainment - great bands - and the beer prices were very reasonable. Great little gift store on site and food available all day. We would definitely recommend staying here - a great spot away from all the hustle and bustle. - Aussie Gap Year

[Note: This park is open "for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Special Events only".] Campground is located approximately 10 miles from Sturgis. Stayed here during rally week and it was a nice break from the action. Free shuttle to town during the rally. Campground is on the prairie, unpaved, but fairly level. Nice distance between sites, although no privacy as it is a large field with no separation between sites. No pool or spa. Laundry is drop off, pay by the pound. There is a small store. There is outdoor dining on site which offers all you can eat breakfasts. Also, you can get lunch and dinner. A little pricey, but it was rally week. Also, the Eye Candy Saloon is on site with nightly entertainment, mechanical bull riding and a small zip line. Wi-Fi is weak to non-existent in the campsites, but you can pick it up with a booster or at the office. Beware that for motorhomes and campers, there is no shade to speak of although a few small trees have been planted, it will be years before they provide any shade. There does appear to be some limited shade for tent camping. In addition to the nightly camping fee, during rally week, they charge a premium per person fee of $130.00 per person. Overall, a pleasant place to stay during the rally. Note, you must drive through Sturgis in order to reach the campground if exiting off the I-90. - Rolling41113

A very large campground to handle the demand during the Motorcycle Festival, but very comfortable when the bikes aren't in town. Convenient to the freeway but we heard no freeway noise. Our pullthru space was very long with adequate space to park the toad. There are some long term renters but their spaces were neat and clean, no problems at all. The office is staffed until noon only this time of year. The lady was driving out when we drove in just after 12:00 and came back to check us in. Very good service from her.
The park is a convenient distance for day trips to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument and Deadwood. If I was coming thru here again, this is where I'd stay. - Bucky Beaver

We have stayed in this campground five times and have always been very pleased with our stay. Staff is friendly and happy to help with any thing we needed. The campground is well maintained and the showers/restroom clean. With staying there a month, it was handy to have laundry facilities. We stayed in the campground for a month this year so the rate reflected above is the monthly rate of $400 converted to a daily rate. Electric was included in the monthly rate. - Loving Retirement

My wife and I stayed here during Sturgis Bike week in August (the selection of that month did not offer that choice on the site). We have stayed at the other famous campground in the past and we decided to check out Glencoe based on the reviews from friends. We were happy that we selected our spot in advance because it gave us the best seat in the park for watching the bike parades and the other fun sights. The owners of the park are friendly and helpful and the food services they had there were great. The park is closer to the downtown action and fun as well as it being next door to one of the best saloons in Sturgis. We plan on coming back again this year. If we want to go to the concerts at the other park we will just buy a ticket. - SteelHorseRider

We camped during Sturgis Bike Week, the people were more than helpful (especially when we had to pick up a friends bike that was towed from an accident and we had no clue where it was). The food was great and the concerts an added bonus. - cathycamping

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
Sep 2014 - $40.00
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
Sep 2012 - $35.00
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
Aug 2016 - $33.00
The park was pretty empty of RV's, although there were a number of tent campers prior to the Sturgis rally. Sites were back-in and roomy enough but the parking area for tow vehicles is across a road, which was very muddy after rain and remained that way for the 3 days we stayed. There is no cable tv but we were able to get 4 channels over the air. WiFi was problematic (Hughesnet) which worked okay in the early morning but disconnected often at night (clouds?). (The manager warned us in advance that this could be the case.) Sites with WiFi were close to the road and were very noisy due to the large number of motorcycles traveling to the rally. Restrooms and showers were very clean but we'll look for another place to stay, next time we're in the area. - blokeman

i think this park is a well kept secret! The reason I think that.....it is empty and the other parks Around here are all full. It is centrally located between Deadwood, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse.
It has a restaurant/bar at the entrance. Below that is the campground. You are off the main road and are looking at trees. It is rather charming. When you enter there is some equipment that makes it looks a bit trashy....but you go beyond that and it is lovely.
The other campgrounds that we saw while driving where in an campground without trees and close together. I like this campground. We stayed four night. - Brandl

We stayed here the week before Sturgis Bike Week. The campground was only 1/3 to 1/2 full for the 5 days we were here. This campground was very quiet even though it is located right beside highway SD 385. The showers and bathrooms were very clean. The laundry area was clean and the machines worked well for us. The Wi-Fi worked very good from our campsite. The landscaping was neat and the grass was kept cut. Some of the tent sites had a shelter and electric available at the site. There seemed to be plenty of room between each site and the roadway within the campground. The roadway is dirt and gravel with no sharp bends for even the longest of rigs. There is a restaurant/saloon combined with the campground office. They closed by 10:00 on the weekends and were closed when we arrived back at the campground at 9:30 on Monday night. Hence no loud music or other distractions at night. If you are in the area to go 4x4 wheeling or quad/ side by side, trail riding in the National Forest,you can do so right from the campground. Quads never need to even go on the road to access the trails & Jeeps or other 4x4 road legal vehicles can do so with out ever going off the dirt roads to access some minor or difficult trails. There is a gas station about 1/4 mile south of the campground that has a convenience store/gas/& air. We stayed here in a tent, but would have no problem bringing our motor home here if were ever in the area again. We would definitely stay here again. - dsbikedan
