This is our first stay at this campground since 2006 and the personal and staff was very friendly and helpful which is a big improvement over our last stay here. This is a large campground with many sections and each area has there own special appeal. We chose to stay at the base camp with a back in site with full hookups. Our site was gravel and very level and no leveling blocks were needed all sites have a picnic table and fire pit. The Cable TV was good and the Wi-Fi was very good at our site. There are three laundries in the campground and we used the one at the main camp and it was nice and adequate. This is your idea campground for the Black Hills area which includes Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, and Custer State Park.
The sites are a little small. Each site has a picnic table on a small patch of grass between the sites. The sites are pretty level.
The wi-fi is good, and you’re within walking distance to downtown Deadwood which is about a mile away, or you can take the trolley car system that has a stop right at the park's clubhouse. It's $1 to ride into town if you don't want to walk, and it comes once an hour in the morning and twice an hour in the afternoons and evenings up until midnight. There is no cable TV in the park and because of the surrounding hills your antenna is almost worthless. They have high water pressure in the park, 60lbs and higher so make sure you have a water regulator. The laundry room was clean and more than enough washers and dryers to go around.
This campground has new management and they are very friendly and working on making this the campground of choice in the Wall area. The campground has small level gravel sites that are slanted to allow easier entrance and exit from the sites. A picnic table is available at each site, there was very good cable TV and WiFi. The campground is within walking distance to Wall Drug. We would stay here again with no hesitation.
We have camped at the Base Camp for the last 4 years and this year we were disappointed with our stay. The staff seemed to be rude this year and have an attitude. This is a nice camp ground and should be considered in your stay.
