We stayed in pull through site #405 and stayed for two nights. The gravel drive was very soft for our motorhome so I had to work a bit on leveling. The site is a nice size with plenty of grass. The park is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and showers looked clean. The pool also looked nice but we did not use it. The one odd thing is the dump station is on the wrong side. That is, when you enter the park, the dump station is at the corner of the building and you can line up properly when entering the park. When leaving, you would need to almost exit the park and come full circle so you can dump. Then you would need to go through part of the park again to exit after dumping. We ended up paying $15 for a honey wagon service that runs on (I believe) Mondays and Thursdays. We paid $35 per night. I would consider camping here again. We camped in a motorhome.
We were located at the end loop between loops 7 & 8 on site 178. When you book here you cannot choose what site you get, rather you tell them what kind of site you want. We booked this site (and another for our camping buddies) and had to book on Labor Day of 2013 in order to get this for July of 2014. The view from our sites were excellent! You can see the Mackinac Bridge, Mackinac Island, and Bois Blanc island from the sites. There is a 'common' grassy area that really gives the place a park like atmosphere. Although we enjoyed our stay and loved our sites, I would not want to stay in one of the interior sites behind us as I felt they were packed in. There are other sites throughout the campground that I would consider. They have a fire engine they run through the park and give rides as well as during the weekend (when we were there) a hay ride. There is a nice beach and a pool for swimming. The store is really nice with some grocery items and, of course, camping supplies, souvenirs, etc. There is a game room that is in the same building as the store and looks nice as well. There is a free shuttle from/to the campground to the Star Line Ferry for Mackinac Island. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well cared for. We would camp here again.
We stopped over night at this campground. The park is well cared for and has excellent access to Lake Michigan as well as a boat launch area that is part of the park. I'm not sure how it would be camping for any length of time as there seemed to be a lot of ants all over the place which I have been told is common in these sandy areas. The sites are spread out so there is a lot of room. We had plenty of room to back in our van & dolly then back the coach in and connect the dolly on the site. There is a nice playground for kids. We camped here on site #1. We would camp here again.
The camp is located just two miles outside of keystone, South Dakota and about four miles from Mount Rushmore and within easy access to all the Black Hills area sites. There are four sections to this campground. Two are pull through sites, one is tent camping and finally there is a section for smaller travel trailers and pop-ups which was very quiet and relaxing. The first pull through sites are located below where we stayed and near the office. This is where most of the fifth wheels and large travel trailers were camped. We did not like that section as it was tightly packed with hardly room to raise their awnings. The second pull through section is located on the other side of the park near a stream and this is where mostly Class A's were located. This section was nicer than the other pull through section with what appeared to be more room. The final section was the tent section and that was really quite nice. The section we stayed in (small travel trailer & pop-ups) had small pavilions with picnic tables for each site. We didn't have room to open our awning, but the pavilion was sufficient enough for us. Sites available in our section had electric and electric/water. The Old Hill City Highway runs the length of the campground, but it was not too busy and we hardly noticed the traffic. The real charm of the camp is the 1880 Hill City to Keystone Steam locomotive that passed by on regular schedules during the day. My only complaint was while we stayed, there was a problem with the water pressure. I am certain they will get it fixed, but it sure caused us headaches whenever we tried to shower or use the water. Near the office, there are also small cabins that can be rented and there is a nice heated pool.
