Very enjoyable stay at this campground and definitely would come back. The friendly and service minded owners are hard to match. The comfort stations were the best we have enjoyed after RVíng for the past 9 months. We came to the Black Hills just when the Surgis Bike Rally was kicking into full gear. Bike rallies are not our cup of tea. Luckily this campground is 4 miles off the highway and doesn't attract the biker crowd or do you have to hear bikers rattling down the highway next to your campsite. They have great Wi-Fi and also free DVD movies to enjoy. It is central to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Needles scenic drive. The sites are open and have no shade and are not secluded. However at $30 per night we felt we received excellent value.
At $43 per night (after Good Sam discount) we did not feel like we received good value for this RV Park. Even though there are trees in this campground, the sites are not secluded and very close together. Some of the staff were friendly and the some were not. The facilities are well kept and there is a small playground and swimming pool. The showers and washrooms were some the best kept comfort stations we have enjoyed after RVíng for the past 9 months. There are decent restaurants within easy walking distance of the campground. Our biggest disappointment is that this campground is right along the highway and the sites do not provide any privacy since they are so close together. The price is too high for location and size of sites. We only stayed one night and I guess for a stop over site it serves its purpose.
At $46 (w/ taxes) per night it was hard to find the value at this RV Park. It has all the amenities like a swimming pool, hot tub, good Wi-Fi and full services. However it is right along the highway; the pool is actually about 20 feet from the highway. The website for this campground gives you the impression that it is quiet and secluded. The campground and sites are anything but with the campground and Inn very close to the highway and highway noise. This area attracts a high volume of motor cycles and so the noise from Harley bikes is quite noticeable both in the campground and from the highway. The showers and washrooms are OK but at the price for this campground I would expect much better. We had very friendly staff and very rude staff. The RV sites are placed in a large gravel parking lot, side by side, with no trees. Very few of the sites are along the river so there is a very good chance your view will be of your neighbors rig.
