Fine place to camp last minute

We were looking for a campground in the area for a same day reservation on a Friday. We called in the early evening and they still had some spots left, very friendly staff. The forecast predicted some rain, so we wanted to find a campground that had some roofed structures at each site. The roofed shelters at each site don't cover the tent area, but we were able to connect our tarp to the side of the shelter and spread it over our tent for some extra protection from the wet. It worked really well. The campground has shower onsite for no extra charge, they were very clean and functional. The drinking water tasted strongly of chlorine to us, which was unfortunate. Another downside is that the sites are quite close together and not very scenic, so the experience feels more like a  place for vacationing families.

Cute spot, close to Mt Rushmore!

Smaller campground. Clean showers and bathrooms. Close to town but feels like you are out in the mountains. A dinner train does go by and blows the horn, but not too disturbing.

Quaint, Relaxing

This is a beautiful location. An overnight stop for our tour of Mount Rushmore.  Only about 20 minutes from the monument.  We booked late in the day but all was ready for our arrival.  We had a Back-In site that was very easily accessed. This location is worth repeating.  For very large rigs with tows, it may be a bit tight in spots.

Great place for tent camping! Shelter houses on each lot. Veterans discount

Close to Mt. Rushmore ,Crazyhorse, 1880's train ride, Sturgis and many more attractions. It would take a week to see everything. Kemps has nice restroom and shower facilities and a pool.

Kozy Kampsite

Nice little campsite along the road, not far from Mount Rushmore! First campsite we ever stayed in in a trailer and it was great! The owners very very nice and extremely helpful! Beautiful scenery!
