On a hill but fairly level sites. Ample space between sites. My site was well shaded. Quiet with fantastic view of city lights at night. Close to everything.

We have family in the Rapid City area and stay at this site. It is an older campground but has many of the amenities found at newer facilities. It does have the most fantastic views of the city's evening lights. Grounds are clean and well maintained. It is a peaceful setting and 30 miles to Mt. Rushmore or Crazy Horse, as well as other tourist activities. Owners are friendly and knowledgeable of area services.

Stayed here on a long awaited vacation, and overall we where pleased. The location is good and convenient. Nice view overlooking Rapid city. Staff was friendly and helpful, laundry room was adequate and enough machines to get done and back to vacationing. The WIFI was slow but thats typical in RV parks. ATT phone had good signal so LTE Hot spot worked great. Plenty of over air TV channels so we never put out the satellite. Only downside would be the age, simply because the sites are close together. And roads are a bit narrow. If you can't operate your rig in tight spaces you may be better else where. But as long as you can truly handle your rig its a real nice place to stay and there is enough room to get around safely.

We stayed in lot 315. Sites are narrow and tiered so that walking on either side of RV was rather tricky. Toy hauler ramp was in road when down. Had to park truck across road in order to fit bicycles and paddle boards in front of rig. Bathroom is updated and clean. We didn't use pool but looked well-kept and clean. Staff were all friendly. Great view of Rapid City from far end of campground.

This is our campground of choice when in the area as it is close to family. Owner/host is very friendly and knowledgeable of area. Your escorted to site as it is tiered and one wrong turn and you would need to make another loop! Sites are "tight" with enough room for vehicle and camper.

We have never utilized laundry or shower facilities but areas look clean and well kept.

There is a good sized pool and this trip noticed it was well used as temps were unseasonably warm.

All gas services are in area, Wal-Mart, Safeway, and many fast food options.

Rushmore Road is undergoing a major street repair so be patient patience :)

We have been here for over a week to see the area and, in my opinion, some of the reviews both on Yelp and Good Sam are unfair. This isn't a destination RV park. It's a home base for seeing the many sights here. The sites are narrow, but there are plenty of big rigs here, including us. There are 3 dog walk areas, and they are not fenced (as one reviewer noted), but few RV parks do have fenced areas. The dog walks are well-maintained, mowed and watered. In the time we have been here, never has there been any sewage odor. They did turn the water off once for about 30 minutes, but we were warned. Wifi is not great but not terrible. The pool could use a coat of paint, but the water is clear, clean and refreshing and the paint is cosmetic. It is close to the highway, but that's a convenience, actually. If we ever get back to this area, we won't hesitate staying here.

I'll tell you the good things first. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal, close to town and shopping yet on a quiet hill with fantastic views of the city far below.

Now for the bad, the park shows its age, old sites that are very short and narrow. So narrow that our picknic table sat on the tilt between our site and the person below us. We have a 39 foot 5th wheel and it barely fit on our site and our truck had to squeeze between the trailer and a tree, barely fit. The pads were once blacktop but are now disintegrated. This park needs a infusion of money to bring it back to life and even that may not help. There are so many nice RV parks in the area, but this is not one of them.

This RV Park is badly in need of repairs. Sewer smell was rampant, and the park is clearly not kept up. One small trash receptacle was provided for the whole park. Park should be renamed "Weed City"!

Response from Rapid City RV Park and Campground:

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. Since you were the only camper staying on that level at that early spring visit we only put one trash can down there. There are three dumpsters on the main level by the pool as shown on the park map and explained at check in, I am sorry you missed them. As for the weeds, we have a full time landscaping person, but at times it is hard to get them all. Safe travels.

The campground is in a state of general disrepair. The sites are somewhat level but rough dirt surfaces. Some sites have partial pavement. The full hookup services are satisfactory. There are many other campgrounds in the area that would have been a much better choice for the price paid.
