I stayed here for the first time last year with several friends who have stayed several times. It was amazing! The cabins are super cute and quaint, with all of the amenities you need to unplug for several days. The staff is great, and friendly! They strive to meet your needs and to make it a great stay. There’s added bonuses of a playground if you bring your kids with you and the spring that runs through is super cold but fun!
We came out for the 75th Rally and happened to ride past Wickiup. We came back the next day and booked for the following year. The cabins have kitchens, bathrooms and everything you need for your stay. My favorite was sleeping on the enclosed porches. The staff and atmosphere makes you feel right at home. My group have been customers since 2015!
Everything I wanted. Easy check in plenty of sites. At the base of Devils Tower!! Great store & staff. They show the movie every night at an outdoor patio with the tower in the background, AWESOME!
You are camping at the gates to the park. Easy in & out of park. Must stay here
Very clean campground convenient to the interstate and sites in the northern Black Hills. There is a bit of traffic noise, but we didn’t find it objectionable. The owners are planting a vegetation buffer to alleviate this issue.
Nice campground. Camp store has a small selection of camping necessities and souvenirs. Great view of Devils Tower and you can view the campground from the trail around Devils Tower’s base. Pricing seemed a bit high, but I guess that’s the premium for the view.
We were surprised to find we could camp at devils tower. We snagged one of the last sites and got our senior discount to boot! The facilities were good, no showers but clean. Stores outside the park have supplies. It was chilly the morning we woke up. This is a nice stop if visiting devils tower.
We stayed at this campsite for one night on our way down to Mount Rushmore, it was a Thursday night early September. We picked a site near the back of the camp grounds located near the creek and close to a small parking lot (close by to the pet exercise area on the map - though it's labelled as an ice rink on grounds). From this site, we were close to the bathrooms (which had both toilet stalls and shower stalls) and drinking water. The campground is quite large, with a lot of space for RVs and tent-campers as well. As a primitive camper, we were located quite close to other campers but everyone was respectful and we slept peacefully through the night. Each primitive campsite had a nearby picnic table, that was great for meal times. Being next to the creek was additionally peaceful, as we could hear the water through the night (which I enjoyed, though other sites are far enough away that you don't have to hear the water if you wouldn't want to).
The camp grounds is located close to the DC Booth Hatchery which is an interesting piece of the local history, and provided us with the opportunity to see some Rainbow Trout.
On the way out of the campgrounds, we were presented with an incredible opportunity to see a large bird of prey making off with a large Trout in its talons.
Great for family camping, or for a place to stop for a few nights but not what you're looking for if you're hoping to be out in the back woods.
The National Park has a campgrounds at the foot of the mountain, water, bathrooms, picnic tables and fire rings provided. The sites are close together and the area is flat, many RV's so I think there were hook ups. The evening program provided by Park Volunteer rangers was interesting and told us the name was misinterpreted and actually was Great Bear Lodge in Sioux. The view of the tower from the campsite was mesmerizing and the storm with thunder and lighting kept me out of my tent long into the night.
We arrived here on October 9th and the KOA was starting to shut down for the winter season, no laundry :(
The Tower is an astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the prairie surrounding the Black Hills. It is considered sacred by Northern Plains Indians and indigenous people. Hundreds of parallel cracks make it one of the finest crack climbing areas in North America. Devils Tower entices us to learn more, explore more and define our place in the natural and cultural world.
We had a full hook-up site here for our travel trailer. They assisted in parking the camper which was helpful since the quarters are quite close in this campground. The owners are very helpful and friendly, The campground is close to lots of great activities such as Spearfish Canyon, as well as Deadwood and Lead. We also used the laundry which was quite roomy and clean.
Entrance to Devils Tower National Monument is right outside the campground. View of Devils Tower from every campsite. Large camp store/gift shop and restaurant on site. Hayrides and showing of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind nightly.
The location is at the foot of Devils Tower. The cabins are clean and a showerhouse with laundry services is provided. They also have a post office, dinner, two stores, and a convenience store across the street.
Great view of the tower, clean campsites and bathrooms! No showers but bathrooms have flushing toilets and sinks in the campground. Excellent picnic area with lots of tables and shade. Evening entertainment was also a huge hit! Friday night we participated in star gazing put on by the Park Rangers and it was out of this world, seriously try to plan your trip to include this, we were told it was offered every two weeks! Saturday night there was story telling and music at the amphitheater! Definitely check out the programs offered by the Park it will make your stay that much more memorable!
This campground is literally a 2 minute walk from tent to the park entrance! There’s a huge store with an ice cream shop and restaurant. The folks are really nice too. There’s a huge grass area for first come, first served tent camping, which I totally recommend! The Premium Tent (PT) sites are very large and can hold at least 3 8-person tents.
Stayed here on a cross country camping trip. Made a reservation online and confirmed via phone. When we arrived, there was no one around to guide us to our site. We found a vacant site, figuring that we would check in the AM. When we were ready to leave, no one was still available. Otherwise it was a clean place to stay.
We had reservations for a cabin but had to cancel. No one ever answered their phone, so all we could do was leave a message describing how our vacation was canceled. We called days in advance. They never called us back. But then we saw they charged our credit card for the full three day stay. When we called to ask why they charged us even though we never received anything from them, their attitude was too bad, we just get to keep your money. Just be aware.
We stayed here for one night, but it was amazing! The campsite was spacious, clean, and the facilities were very nice!! We picked a site with a view and we didn’t regret that one bit! Probabky one of the nicest KOAs we’ve stayed at so far! Definitely recommend Devil’s Tower and definitely recommend this KOA!
