Great campground with a beautiful view of Pactola Lake. We only got to stay for one night but we are going back this summer. The camp hosts were very nice and accommodating! I thought the camping pads were a little close to each other but other than that it wasn’t to bad. There was a store close to the camping area that had everything you could want including boats and paddle board rentals!
prob the most prettest campground aroumd
Thos was a great place! No electricity of water but well worth it. We had a spot just about the lake and plenty of room to fo whatever we wanted!
Gracious camp hosts, nice level grounds for tents, plenty of firewood for sake and the most beautiful views anywhere. My husband and I spent a quiet weekend, relaxing, shore fishing and spending quality time together. Perfect! The onoy thing that would make it better are shower houses
The tent sites are gorgeous! You may have to move some pinecones, needles, and large sticks, but the grass is quite soft. Bathrooms is clean, but there is only one.
This is a national forest campground. Vault toilets were very clean and didn’t smell. There are pay laundry machines and showers at the marina store nearby. Also they rent boats and paddle boards. The marina and campground hosts have wood for sale. There is a drive through trash area with several big barrels for trash and recyclables. There is a specified swimming beach, however we were turned off due to all the geese poop! We waded and swam in the water near our campsite. The campground sites are adequately spaced so you don’t feel crowded. There are no tent pads. Most sites can accommodate several tents. Overall a great camping experience if you don’t need the luxury of electricity and sewer hookups!
Primitive campground tucked into the hillside overlooking Pactola Lake. Well maintained and for a fantastic price. Can’t wait to go back.
We loved this place. The group site had room for all and private restrooms. We had a wonderful view of the lake making watching the sun rise breathtaking.
Centrally located in the Black Hills, this campground is a convenient place to stay while you visit the various attractions of the Black Hills. Our family had a great time swimming, boating and fishing on the lake. The nearby marina has a small store that makes it convenient for any last minute essentials. We would definitely visit this campground again.
Stopped here on our road trip since it was near Mt. Rushmore. Grabbed one of only a few spots left, but it was an absolutely beautiful, huge spot above the reservoir. Tons of space with our own private pathway down to the water. Gets only 3 stars though because the pit toilet was the grossest one on our whole road trip. It's also "managed," which means there's someone at the check-in taking your money and helping out, but also means the cost was more than we spent anywhere else that did not have flush toilets ($26/night). Lots of happy people with friends partying (seems like a good local place for people who want to use the lake), so I was worried about the noise, but everyone quieted down by quiet hours.
