Clean and well situated for visiting the area. Could only give three stars on overall rating because there is not a level site in the place that I could see. Many are so slanted that they require you to disconnect any towed vehicles at the check-in site, fearing that you will not be able to at your site. Ours was tolerable but I actually saw three others reject their assigned site.

Stayed for a week, water/electric site with 14' travel trailer right after Labor day weekend. 2 of is with 2 small dogs. Great location near Custer, close to Mount Rushmore. In the trees, clean, and restful location. Friendly and helpful staff, on phone and in person. Very clean facilities and property. Will definitely stay there again!

Great experience, close to Custer State Park. Owner on site, & does daily tour of grounds to talk to guests. Sites nestled among Pondrosa Pines, Deer & Wild Turkeys visit almost nightly. Would stop again if in area.

What a lovely place to stay. Great location in the heart of the Black Hills. We had a family reunion and loved the fact that there where campsites, cabins, and tent sites. Really enjoyed our stay

The site we were in was difficult to back into because of trees, the sight was really close to our neighbor's on one side and a steep incline on the other side, the Wi-Fi was spotty and slow, the employees were very friendly, RV Park is centrally located to attractions in the area. I would have given this park a 4 star if the site had been better, and Wi-Fi had been better.

This park is located in a perfict location to see all of the sites of the Black Hills. With its wooded yet large sites it offer a great experiance. The cable and WiFi worked great. This sites are large and fairly level (no major bridge work needed) , each has a table and fire ring. I will stay at this RV park again

The location is very central to the area attractions. Nice wooded area but very hilly. we were able to set up in a level site since our camper is small. The bathrooms were nice and each one is private with its own door.
