How to read the Good Sam Rating 10/10 /10.
All three ratings categories are measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.Less than 1 percent of parks or campgrounds receive the coveted 10 / 10 / 10 rating, which indicates superior facilities that are well maintained, clean, well-appointed restrooms and a highly appealing appearance.Campgrounds are inspected annually by dedicated RVers like you.

Stayed 3-nights. Very nice RV park but next to a main highway with an up-hill grade which made it somewhat noisy when semi-trucks rolled through. Sites were level though not quite long enough for a 37 ft motorhome and a regular size car. We had to park the car side-ways in order to stay off the grass. Still a nice campground.
The laundry facility is very small for an RV park with this number of sites. They should consider expanding this part of their facility in the future.
When we left we had to throw our trash on top of a pile of other trash next to the dumpster because the dumpster was over-flowing. Not sure when it was last emptied but there were not that many campers in the place for it to be over-flowing like this unless it had not been emptied in more than a couple of weeks.
Otherwise appears to be well maintained. I would stay there again if in the area.

We stayed 8 days here right off highway 79 so the road noise was noticeable but not unbearable. Bath and showers very clean as was the pool area and hot tub. The staff is very friendly and was very help in helping us with directions to different sites to see. The site we had was level and long enough for are 36 ft MH and toad. All sites are gravel and level. This is a great location for seeing all there is to see in the Black Hills including Hot Spring, Wild Horse Sanctuary, and Custer National Park. We spent very little time at the RV park except to sleep; there was too much to see. We will stay here again when we come back.

This is a fairly new Park, and it is set up very nice for the large RV's I came in with a 32' towing, and had no problem getting in. Did not use restrooms, so won't rate or comment. The sites and roads are gravel?, or should I say they are a gravel clay soil mix. Thin on the gravel. We had a rain during our stay, and you could see where the pads on an RV sunk about 3 inches, the mud flowed with the water. The folks were friendly, and I was able to get a site with no planned reservation, but to the point, they weren't full and it was Sturgis week? I don't know why not but it was good for me. The CG is very handy to the tour sites in the area. Black Hills, Mount Rushmore etc. Would I stay here again absolutely. My suggestion to the owners is to get good clean gravel and put it down for the roadways and sites, also making a ditch or a means of draining excessive rain water.

Very noisy situated off the highway. Weird arrangement for showers all in the same small entry area. Men and women must shower in the same room behind doors of course. Better arrangement needed. Bathrooms and showers were clean.

We only stayed 1 night, passing thru. Office was not open so can not comment on that. Spots are level, clean outside areas and great shower bath house.

The ladies that worked in the check in lobby are amazing..enjoyed them a lot. The facility is under construction so lots of piles of dirt ..which is understandable. The spot we was in was a drive thru but the truck and camper didn't fit in same spot. We parked In an empty spot across or next to us. It's close to the highway so has road noise. Very few trees..would of liked to of seem more. But our biggest complaint was where the dog walking area was. We have 2 large dogs and we had to walk them quite a ways to get across the camp ground to the dog walking grass.. It would be nice to have an area on both sides of camp ground. With all that being said I would recommend this camp ground just needs a few tweaks.

Aside from the dirt roads and sites and the narrow grass strips between sites, and no shade of any kind, the biggest drawback to this park is the highway noise and handicap restroom access. The restroom has handicapped facilities but the key is kept in the office which means a person of limited mobility or wheelchair has to wheel himself to the office, obtain the key, wheel back to the restroom, and when finished, take the key back to the office, then wheel himself to his site. A coded lock would make more sense. Good park for a short stay. The only real positive assets are they have power and water at the tent sites which you do not see very often and it is close to the Black Hill's attractions.
