We were very disappointed in the whole park. It is way past it's prime. There are broken and dangerous chairs at the pool. The hot tub was very poorly controlled for temperature and usage. Some of the facilities were very worn and in disrepair. The sites were like a postage stamp with no area for grass for children to play.You were expected to share a shelter and a very small fire ring. We could get no cell service. However our biggest concern was a gang of unruly kids who roamed around getting into mischief, fighting between each other, using foul language, and littering all over. When we complained were told that everything was being done to control the kids and that in the future we should come to the office to report incidents and the police would be called. The children's parent's and campground personel allow the kids to use the pool and hot tub without adult supervise which is against the campground rules We asked for a refund so we could move and we were refused. This didn't make our vacation terrible, but another campground would have helped.

We were a bit off season but the place was nice. Had cable and WiFi. Restrooms/showers were clean. Is on south side of Rapid City across from Reptile Gardens. We went to Journey Museum in town. Very nice. Rapid City is a nice little town. Used as base for Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore and other area attractions. Nice having a shelter over one's picnic table in case of rain. Don't know how the place would be crowded. Can have a fire in the little ring shown in photo.

Poor customer service-they lost our reservation twice. There is a cable charge, but all you get for channels is sports, weather and news. The sites are very small with no room to park the pickup after you've unhooked. Alltel cell service was iffy. Laundry facilities was clean, and for the most part they were friendly.

Nice, clean park close to all major attractions. Friendly staff, well-stocked campstore, playground, gameroom, and pool, easy access off Hwy. 16.
