We really enjoyed our stay over Memorial Day weekend (2021).
What we liked:
- Great setting with generous campsites. Not over-crowded; butts up against open field/horse farm, with a really neat creek running through the grounds. Very relaxing atmosphere, especially in the area we stayed in which was at the far East end.
- Plenty of activities; the pool was not open yet while we were there, but they have a fun mini-golf course which was a great place for the kids to go while hooking/unhooking everything. Nice playground area. I believe there are tennis/basketball courts also, but we didn't use them.
- Nice gift shop with bistro attached. Very friendly staff.
- Price is well in-line with the experience and amenities provided here.
What we didn't:
- Not really the fault of the campground, but even the "best" route to get to the campground (via Playhouse Road) is a bit nerve-wracking. Very narrow & winding roads, as is common in the Black Hills. If you have a larger rig, I'd think twice about trying to get in here unless you are very experienced with the area and have driven the road at least once without your rig.
- It is a bit of a drive (30+ minutes) to get to most attractions from here, so this location is really more about the destination itself, and not a great place to jump off and see lots of specific sights, unless you want to be basically central to most popular attractions (Mt. Rushmore, Custer, etc.) without being super close to any one of them.
In summary: Highly recommend as a great place to set up camp and relax in the Black Hills, especially if you have a small or medium-sized rig!
