We liked the campsite right on the creek. Tried fishing it but no luck. As it turned out the sites are so tight that we were next to the bathhouse and got a waft of the septic tank each morning and evening when the showers were in use. Also had trouble with people visiting other campsites parking on our site... More

Kemps is on a really pretty road that runs between Keystone and Hill City (2 fun little glitter gulches). The road runs though some very scenic rock formations (in fact it crosses a scenic rail line many times). If you have an RV request the sites closer to Keystone (a stream runs behind them). All you need to do to... More

We had a great experience here! Helpful staff and friendly faces! The first day the light was out in the shower house so I told the front desk by the next day it was fixed. Clean bathrooms and camp ground. We had a large pickup and parked behind our camper with no problem. The creek side spots were beautiful!

Kemp's Kamp is a quiet camp ground for campers, tents, or you can rent very nice cabins. The area is in the heart of the beautiful Black Hills, very near Keystone, SD. It is a great place to relax, and many things to see in the Black Hills are not far away. It is one of our favorite campgrounds in... More

I have been staying at a covered tent site with electricity for the last 4 years during the Sturgis Rally. The owner is always present, helpful and takes pride in keeping the showers and restrooms clean. If you want to be centrally located to Sturgis, Rapid City, The Black Hills and Custer National Park during the Sturgis Rally without all... More

Stayed in one of the cabins up on the hill. Loved it, Private, Very Clean, Reasonably Priced. Well appointed. Great view from the front door. Centrally located in the Black Hills. Will definitely stay there again.

What a great place. Located near Keystone and not far from Hill City. Very peaceful with lots of wild turkeys that visit every morning and early evening. The train is just across the road so you can watch it go by a few times a day. The WIFI is great here. We camped out in our RV. The management was... More

What can I say? Location location location! This campground is centrally located as a kid we always stayed in Custer and you had to drive to go see anything. This is right outside of Keystone on a backroad to Hill City and located even driving distances to Hot Springs and Deadwood. The bathrooms are always clean ( we are tent... More
