I dont remember our nightly rates but they must have been affordable. The owners and staff of this place are EXTREMELY polite and helpful. There is also a general store out front. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay close to Truman Lake.
I have no idea if this campground is clean, family oriented or anything. The reason for the review is that almost (43 hours) before my scheduled check in time I tried to move the reservation to another KOA because I was ahead of my travel schedule. The lady who answered the phone was very rude and down right mean. Just because of this I would not recommend the place. Again, I never stayed there before but due to the clerks behavior on the phone I would not want to. I was told I had to be 48 hours prior to my reservation to cancel or move it which I understand. It was the way she presented herself that bothers me. I did not receive any type of refund or credit.
This was a very nice campground and the staff couldn't have been more courteous. We only stayed overnight on the 20th of July. I had asked the manager where a store might be close by to get a few groceries. She asked me if I was still hooked to my trailer and I told her yes, so she insisted that she would have a staff member take me to the store. I thought that was just great. I would stay here again. Very clean and once again a very courteous staff.
Horsethief Campground in Hill City, SD has tremendous scenery around the place. The campground itself is okay and it is centrally located. Our site (126) was a secluded site but was on a hill. The trailer leveled okay but everything else (chairs, tables, etc) would not level. The driveway for the trailer and the surrounding area was all dirt (very little gravel) and we had a storm come thru which ended up giving us about 5 inches of mud all over every item we had outside. The campground web site boasts of having WI-FI available. While this is true it is extremely slow and would not connect most of the time. I asked the staff about this and they did not seem to care that I was having an issue (which I later found out that other campers were experiencing the same thing). The staff was very distant and not polite at all. Overall the campground was okay but the staff was not. I would not recommend the site to others at this time.
