Tons of amenities but long drive to the natural wonders

During a hot week mid June, we were grateful for full hookups, clean shower facilities, and a (small) pool to keep cool BUT the little trees beside each site provide no shade for the rigs. They provide breakfast and dinner for a fee if interested and have live music, wine tastings … no shortage of things to do on site and a good culture for families and retirees alike! We would’ve liked to be closer to the sites The Black Hills provides but we became accustomed to hour long drives or more to Custer for all the must-do things there! Deadwood and Devils Tower were 75 min and 2 hrs. The campground provided a printout with all the local attractions and how far they were! So helpful. Highly recommend Sylvan Lake hike(s), watching the Buffalo herds near the Wildlife Visitor Center at dusk, and feeding the Burros at the southeast corner - bring carrots and apples! Mt Rushmore and others are obvious things to see! I’ll quickly reiterate, facilities were always very clean! The convenience store didn’t have anything that interested us besides ice BUT it could be helpful to many in a pinch or even looking for souvenirs.

  • shower stalls at the 3 bathhouses - very clean!
  • bathrooms - always clean and they had air fresheners going
  • for being such a huge campground, and fully booked during our stay, the bathrooms and showers were always minimally used / nearly empty
  • all but one dryer was in working order. area was well kept. wash for $2 and dry for $1.50
  • small pool but goes to 8 ft and perfect for kids or swimming laps if it’s empty! also had a hot tub.
