Not big rig friendly
Spaces ore gravel and very close together, my rig is 40ft long, It was close getting parked and getting out. Staff was friendly WiFi was poor. We did not use the laundry or showers. Water system went out while we were here, took over 24hours to repair.
Excellent location for touring the Southern Black Hills. Do NOT ENTER PARK FROM DOWNTOWN. There is major construction. Call owners for local knowledge. Good water pressure. WIFI dropped out frequently. We are bikers and found owners quite friendly and helpful and accommodating. Terraced sites are steep and a bit snug but quite workable. Phenomenal views of the city. ATT cell phone satisfactory. Would rate 3.5.
Sturgis Rally Bikers Beware
Considering this RV park is on the edge of the Black Hills and 25 miles from Sturgis, you would think the management would cater to motorcyclists. However, this is not the fact. The site is not only steep and gravelly. But there are numerous onsite road hazards, potholes, trenches, etc.
They have a Quiet time policy which was apparently not adopted with motorcycles in mind.
BE advised, the owners here are happy to take your money with a plastic smile on their face. The truth is, they hate bikes, noisy pipes, and the people who ride them. They will put you and your camping party in the most secluded and farthest spots from shower/laundry, exit.
The lower level access is about an 8% grade of gravel and dirt, and if raining, you will be lucky to get a bike out of there without being covered with mud at best.
If you want to give your hard earned vacation money to people whom consider "Motorcyclists" a lower life form than RV'ers. And be treated accordingly. . . .this is the place for you..
I would suggest Any alternative to this place would have to be an improvement!
This is a VERY Old park, if you are a Senior, or handicapped in any way, you will want to avoid this place. The place is Steep, the pavement is broken, patched, irregular, Dangerous. Watch your step! Lighting at night is POOR at best.
The good points, the Wi-Fi is very weak, the water has not been flushed for the season or the pipes are bad...the water has a rust color and bad taste. The shower house is Dated, low water pressure and not much hot water. The place smells like sewage. The sites are over 50 years old, are not level, and access is Tight. Obviously not designed for large units. . .There were several open ditches where repairs are being made, without proper if any, safety barriers etc. With poor lighting, an accident waiting to happen. The electrical service is antique and un dependable.
Unless you are driving a small rig and desperately need to stop, I would avoid this Site!
The owners are evidently new, stressed, and not completely honest when describing the amenities of this campground. Expect them to be short on patience, high on price, helpful if they have to be. Good luck!
Friendly people work here. Grounds are rustic, tent area seems nice when we walked down to it. Upper area is almost all terraced spots. Good night view of the city.
This park is now the Rapid City RV Park & Campground. We stayed 2 nights in our 40 ft class A. This is an old park that is showing its age. There are new owners that are working on improvements. They were very nice & helpful in getting us into a space that was comfortable. The spaces are pretty close but they are terraced on levels so you don't feel quite as tight. The spaces need some work but that will take time. If you are looking for luxury this isn't your place. If you want a nice quiet place to park convenient to the area attractions you will be fine. It has some very nice views. I think in the next year this will be a much improved park. Good luck to the new owners!!!
