Everyone who works at the campground was absolutely fantastic to deal with which is first and foremost. The showers and bathrooms are clean and modern. The pool is large and kept at a comfortable temperature. If you are looking for accommodations in the Custer area, wether it be a campsite or a cabin, look no further. We will certainly return...

This campground has beautiful pines and the sites are well spaced. The crowd was nice and mellow. There were groups outside in the evenings, but never too late and the volume was always kept low. We had site 5 and it was a fantastic site. All the sites are nice and level. The firewood was dry (it is amazing how... More

Very nice and quiet place to camp, even tho it is close to a highway. Easy to find entrance and turn in from highway. Sites were gravel but most were level and most sites were easy to access except for a few. Nice cement patio at each site. All amenities including cable TV. The only problem I think is the... More

The part was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Ask advice on what and when to see it. Different times of the day make a difference with crowds and animal activity. They have many bikes for kids to use while staying so if your kids aren't picky don't bother with bringing your own.

This is a lovely, family friendly campground with adorable cabins. We brought our 5th wheel camper with 2 grandsons my daughter and her family rented a cabin. We stayed for a week and took in the surrounding sights. By far one of the best vacations we've had. Kids enjoyed the pool, water slide and playground while the adults enjoyed being... More

We stayed here 4 days while in the Black Hills. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Site was adequate for our 37' 5th wheel. Most sites are a little small, but we weren't there much anyway. Nice location in the middle of many attractions. Will stay there again on our next trip.

We recently tent camped here and were very pleased with the size of our site, amenities available and cleanliness of bath houses. The staff are friendly and always on site to keep things running smoothly. We loved having a kitchen sink area to clean dishes and TV room to relax. We put our tent under the awning on our site...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The view from our camping spot was gorgeous. Loved watching the deer and rabbits while we sat out by the campfire in the evenings. The boys loved the heated pool. Bath house was very clean. Would defiantly stay at this campground again.

Good Sam gave this campground a high rating so we decided to give it a try. The campground was very clean and orderly. The staff was very nice. We did not use any of the facilities (the restrooms, laundry, store, etc.) and the pool was not open for the season. We very much liked the campsite and will be traveling... More
