Close to Mt Rushmore on a little reservoir. Mix of RV and hike in camp sites nestled in the forest. Fresh water available with bathrooms nearby. We had a nice site overlooking the lake.

Quiet and beautiful

This was one of our favorite spots on our road trip through SD! Quiet, beautiful and close to Rushmore, Hill City and Custer! The sites were nice with new concrete pads and fire pits. Pit toilets, didn’t see any showers.
