The is none of several parks in the Black Hills area that we unexpectedly stayed at because the RV park in Deadwood we planned on using for 4 or 5 days was fully booked from Thursday through the weekend. The rate here is Passport America for a fairly level, gravel, full hookup pull-through site. All the lower level sites appear to be pull-through and the upper tier sites seem to be pull-ins so you get a view of the town out your windshield. The Wi-Fi network was OK but that may have been because there were only a dozen other RVs in the entire 164 site park. Why this park (just blocks from the center of Sturgis) is virtually empty on a Friday night in August is puzzling. The RV parks in Deadwood (just 15-20 miles away) are turning RVers away this weekend. After walking up and down the main streets of the town, I was not impressed with Sturgis. Personally, I find the type of people Sturgis draws to be rather sleezy (loud, obnoxious, and often drunk). Until we fell asleep around midnight, we could hear the music from one of the larger bars that is maybe 500 yards and slightly downhill from the park. There is no cable TV but most sites are satellite friendly. The bathrooms (both the men's and the women's bathrooms have several newer model washers and dryers in them) are small for a park this large. I saw nothing recreational or any sign of recycling. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a week and 2 days at Sturgis RV Park. They have 3 levels of parking. We used Passport America for the additional 2 days. We stayed on the highest level which provided great views of the town and the fireworks display over the 4th. Sturgis is centrally located and the longest drives were to Wall Drug, Badlands NP, and Devil's Tower. Great location for visiting the sites. They recently planted trees in the lower level which enhances the park considerably. Staff are friendly and professional. Well maintained park, and easily accessible for large rigs. Roads and sites are well maintained. A good value when exploring Southwest South Dakota. We are returning in August for a one month stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a bit shocking when you first pull up because it is so bare and a huge gravel open area. Nothing fancy. However, we got 2 nights at PA rate of $12.50 and one night at $25 (reg price). Can't hardly beat that! Everything worked, free WIFI, good size sites, and level. Nice at the office. It worked well for us. Word of caution: Hard to get to with GPS. Just go down a few blocks and come around. Nice walking trail nearby. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only drawback to this place is that it's basically a large gravel parking lot. The sites are large and pull-through with full hook-ups. Wi-Fi was very good. The restrooms and showers were spotless. The washer and dryer arrangement was different though. We've never seen a laundry actually in the restroom before. It's a great location for all the area attractions. This is the place we would stay if we were in the area again, except during the motorcycle rally. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I stayed here during the 2013 rally. Great place, all the workers were very friendly. Very good security. I was on the second level, with a great view of the city. Very clean park. They have a shuttle bus that will take you downtown from 6 PM until 2 AM. It is a short walk to Main St. I will stay here again. I had a great time I will be back for the next rally. The best deal in Sturgis! The rate reflects the rate during the rally. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one week and left the MH here one week while we flew home. Did not worry a bit about the MH being there as we felt very confident in the staff and the area. Staff told us they would keep an eye on our rig while we were gone. Super staff, great facility, great view from the top deck overlooking downtown Sturgis. Super bike/walk path runs right in front of CG will take you into town or out to Fort Mead in the other direction. Walk to grocery store, restaurants and all other downtown spots. Rate is reflected as a weekly. We will not stay anywhere else when in Sturgis. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well laid-out park. It is all gravel, sites are level, bathrooms large and clean. Host was very pleasant. Good site for touring Sturgis, Deadwood, and surrounding area. I would camp here again as long as it was not during the Bike Rally week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One week for just $100 + tax ($25 nightly). (Rally week prices are very high, one way to keep overzealous partyers away I guess) Large, level, full hookup, pull thrus. Friendly managers/campground hosts. Grounds are dirt, packed rock (one section has grass, but that area was closed to campers at this time. Drawbacks to campground are no shade and no pool to keep cool in hot summer sun. Pluses are proximity to so many destinations (Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, Rapid City, Black Hills, Devils Tower, etc). Restrooms and showers are very clean. Oddity is laundry in bathrooms, some units in mens and some in womens - so much for asking the spouse to transfer from washer to dryer... We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is all gravel but pretty level. The hookups were in the proper place and worked fine. The price of $16 per day is for a 1 week stay. Facilities were clean and park was very comfortable and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pleasant park to stay in while visiting the nearby sights. The thing that really bothered us was that you have to walk or drive around and select your own site. The office will not assign you one. Then you go back to the office and tell them what you have selected. Not knowing anything about the park, we picked the wrong site. We were too near the office. Next time we'll get farther away. The worker in the office was very friendly. Due to its proximity to town we will probably stay here again. The weekly rate is actually very reasonable. It appears there is security here during the rally but not the rest of the year. As previously stated, everything is gravel but no trouble leveling. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price reflects the Passport America rate. This place is a treat ; the managers are VERY friendly. In fact, it says, "The friendliest RV park in South Dakota" on their receipt, and I would have to say that is right on! The showers/bathrooms/laundry facilities are very nice, super clean, and designed to be able to handle a lot of people (obvious that they planned for that for the motorcycle rally). Sites are level; all good gravel sites and roads. We will DEFINITELY return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is the closet park to downtown Sturgis. It is walking distance for the few blocks to main street, the largest town grocery store, restaurants, etc. During the August motorcycle rally, this would be the premier place to stay to be right in the middle of everything going on in downtown Sturgis. The price paid in this review reflects the $108 (including tax) rate for a one week, 7 day stay. As with ALL RV parks in the area, the prices jump during the annual rally. The parking sites are level gravel, have plenty of length, and have three different locations for sewer hook-up. There is no grass available for walking your dog but there is a grassy field across the street within a few hundred feet. The RV park is quiet and well maintained. The bathrooms are large and spotless with separate toilet rooms that have locking doors for privacy. The showers are large and have a separate dressing area in the front. Plenty of hot water. Both the men and women's bathrooms have laundry equipment. The office has a small amount of RV supplies for sale. The RV park is on the side of a hill that overlooks Sturgis. There are upper and lower areas for RV's to park. The park Wi-Fi was fantastic. Probably the fastest that we have used anywhere. When we stayed the park was only about 10% full so the Wi-Fi may not be as fast as it may be when the park has more visitors. Our crank-up antenna was able to receive the ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS stations from Rapid City, SD. There is so much to do in the Black Hills that this park provided us with a great base to go on daily trips to Rushmore, Custer State park, Deadwood, Devil's Towers etc. We will definitely stay here again and are already making plans for a return visit in the future. The park is seasonal and will be closing at the end of September for the Winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Best Park in our opinion. The rate is a weekly rate, we stayed 1 week and enjoyed it so much we stayed a second. Up on the terrace the view of Sturgis at night is beautiful. Great managers and hosts answered questions and helped with directions. We stall tell all our friends about it and recommend to everyone. We must say the best weather to be in this time of the year. Close to all the area's sights and easy to get to shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great Park . Owners very helpful . We lost part of our awning on the way to site. Park owners helped remove what was left of the awning . When we were getting ready to leave , one stabilizer would not retract. They came to our aid again . Will stay there next time we are through South Dakota We camped here in a Motorhome.
FORMELY MTN. JACKSON RV PARK!!! GREAT LOCATION IN THE BLACK HILLS!!! Mangers are super helpful. We stayed here in a 38' motorhome and the price reflects Weekly Rate of $100+ tax. Sites were level. We stayed here two weeks and saw a lot of the Black Hills, Devils Tower and the Badlands. The electricity was good, AT&T cell service was good, Verizon air card was good, campground furnished Wi-Fi was good, the restrooms were clean and there were laundry facilities in both men and ladies restroom area, closest Wal-Mart was about 18 miles, local grocery store 1 block from park entrance. Will definitely be returning. It is a great spot for visiting the area attraction as well as attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally held each year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best view, above Sturgis, surrounded by mountains. Campsites are gravel and dirt/clay mixture, quite messy, otherwise I would have given them a 10. Sites are large, plenty of room for toad. Sturgis is a quiet little town when not hosting the big rally. Very convenient to I-90 even for an overnight. Campground is now named Sturgis Campground and they do honor Passport for 2 nights, with some restrictions. Would definitely return! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 nights under Passport America and then extended to one week for $100. Great place. Modern laundry, level sites, very good WiFi, nice managers, wonderful places to visit like Rushmore, Crazy Horse and much more. Great little local restaurants. We would definitely go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice roomy park on a big gravel area. Price reflects weekly rate. 3 sewer connections in each site to accommodate any RV location. Laundry rooms in each of the restrooms. Park is on woodland not 2nd. Look at the hill north side of town and you will see it. Went to Deadwood and Lead while here. Also take the Spearfish canyon drive. Fall colors were coming on and waterfalls to see. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is 2 blocks from downtown Sturgis, close to grocery, entertainment, post office, Pamida, etc. We stayed 9 nights 1 week after the rally. Essentially just large gravel parking lot but nice level spaces, ease of in-out and hook-ups. Price for 1 week is $100.00 and we used Passport America for remaining 2 days as it was great point to sight see all through the Black Hills. Restroom and laundry were like new, very clean; and the customer service was outstanding. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects weekly rate. Yes, this is basically a gravel parking lot to look at but staff is great and facilities more than adequate. Wi-Fi works well. Walking path across the street goes into a well maintained park. A good grocery store in within walking distance. Not a lot of lighting which would interrupt sleep. We were here over the Fourth of July and thoroughly enjoyed the firework display as viewed from their upper level. Only drawback at the moment is the landslide that covered roadway to upper levels. This was cleared up and being worked on during our stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a clean, well maintained park. It has a wonderful view of downtown Sturgis from the upper levels, which we had no problem navigating with our big rig. You can walk out of the park onto a city maintained path of over 10 miles, through parks and along the river. But, the best feature at the park are the managers. It doesn't matter how wonderful a park is, if you are not treated well, it loses it's luster. The managers make you feel as if you are at a 5 star hotel. They cater to all needs, and go above beyond in all instances. Would recommend this park as a base camp for anyone going to the Black Hills. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The nightly rate reflects the weekly rate divided by 5 nights. Mt. Rodney advertises itself as a luxury coach resort. Hmmm, me thinks something is amiss here. We did stay for 5 nights because this was our base camp for Spearfish, Deadwood, and of course, Sturgis. They must have very good legal representation because there are open digging sites with huge holes, open man-hole covers (none of this marked), and electrical cords strung across sites without any obvious work being performed. Be careful if you walk the park at night! Good features: this park is located across from a nice field of trees and green lawn bordering a river, and a nice river walk leading to a city park. The hosts are kind but didn't know the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Relatively new RV park with full hook-up big rig sites. No worries about length of your rig; picnic tables at all sites. Beautiful view from upper levels of park. Clean & well kept restroom/shower/laundry area. Friendly, helpful staff, great rates, central area for many attractions. Will definitely return when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the all around nicest parks we've stayed in throughout our many years of traveling. Air conditioned restrooms, shower and laundry area are exceptionally clean which is definitely a great big PLUS with us. Picnic tables at each site along with 20/30/50 amp service. The upper 2 levels afford a fantastic view of Sturgis and the Black Hills as well as wildlife very close to our rig. Has very courteous and helpful staff. We will definitely stay at Mt. Rodney RV Park when we're in the area again! A delightful experience and also close to many of the areas attractions. If you're here on the 4th of July, be sure to watch the fireworks from the upper level: awesome!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is located at the foot of a hill, overlooking downtown Sturgis. The sites are level gravel pull-thrus with full hook-ups (50 amp too)at each site. Each site has a picnic table and a grassy area. On the evening of our arrival there were very few campers and deer were grazing on the grounds. It is a short 1/2 mile walk to the restaurants, etc. The CG is very quiet and immaculate. The showers were locked as was the laundry room, so I was not able to view them. The dry gulch in front of the CG can be a rattlesnake hide away, so do not go walking in it. (I was warned by a local of this). During the motorcycle rally week in early August, the weekly rate is $850 and up. However, if you are travelling and want a nice spot to stay for a day or more at any other time, this is a great CG. It is brand new, so I hear. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed two weeks. Would stay again. Located about 15 miles from Deadwood/Lead and from Spearfish. Very open no shade. New. Part of the park is on a hillside and would give a lovely view. They had had a lot of rain the week before so no one was on the hill. Park was empty. The most vehicles at one time was less than ten. Showers and Restrooms were clean but the women's shower water was not hot. Sites were gravel with grass patios. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park (2006) with gravel roads & sites and grassy around sites. This park has a friendly staff and wide open view of Sturgis which is just a 5 minute walk. Rates are higher for motorcycle rally. The main level is flat with a few wild deer visits in the late afternoon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
