Excellent state park. We stopped on our way to the Black Hills in South Dakota. This is a great campground with an awesome waterfall and wonderful hiking trails. I only wish we had more time to stay!

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.
