My husband called the day before our arrival to make sure they were open. Oh YEs said the owner manager. But if I'm not there I will leave a note on the door and you can pick your site. Will be electric but no water till I get back in the afternoon. So we arrive the next day.. No note. We pick a site. Park and set up and wait and wait. And wait!! We try to call and get a phone answering service. Finally after 3 hrs. We get told that owner manager is not returning till the next day. No water, no electric no nothing!!! If your open for business be open for business and treat your customers with better care. This place is miles and miles from the attractions although in a nice setting. I wouldn't recommend my enemy to put up with this kind of non service

| Rude Owner

By user-6658761... on 2017-10-23.

Reserved a rental car from this RV Campground. Provided credit card and all associated info. Was promised an email confirmation. Didn't hear back after two days, called, told, "yeah you didn't get the confirmation because I didn't send it yet". Two days later same thing. A week later called again, told I'll buddy didn't get to it. When I questioned further he said, "how about if I just cancel your reservation"?

Large roomy sites. Very scenic. Easy to maneuver around the road. Location is centrally located to many attractions. We visited Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Needles Highway, Wind Cave

| Perfect base camp

If you need a nice, quiet, large spaces, friendly base camp while exploring the local area, this is one of the best you will find. they are really busy, so make your reservations early. we had one of the 'electric only' sites, but it was perfect for our use. I wish all the places we pay for were as nice as this one. 40' big rig. no issues for larger RV's

| Do not try to ask about early check in

By user-4611869... on 2017-10-23.

Location 5 stars owner 0 stars. We arrived half an hour early which is fine but when told oh the space was not available yet also fine. But to be treated like a petulant child by the owner whose salary we pay was completely unacceptable. Even when I tried speaking with him about how we were treated poorly and rudely. Owner just walked away without an apology for the miscommunication Travellers beware

When we made our reservations in January we didn't know what to expect when we arrived. What we found was a very nice RV Park 28th big spaces and lots of room between sites. The staff is friendly and helpful. The prices are fair (except for ice... Wow!!!). We had a nasty t-storm blow through but because we are in a valley the sheer winds kind of blew over the top of us!!! I love being in the Black Hills of South Dakota; we've been here many times... Custer's Gulch is a great place to homebase.

| Very nice place!

We spent an hour trying to find State Park Campgrounds only to learn you had to have a reservation and pay an additional $20 to enter the park. Custer's Gulch was nearby, so we decided to try it. However, the Google directions on this site were incorrect, so we fortunately saw their sign and turned on Golden Valley Rd. It's about a half mile from the highway in a lovely, peaceful valley. The sites are spacious and level with grassy areas between each one. The whole park is well-groomed and immaculate. They had a small laundry (two washers & two dryers). It also had the best internet connection we've ever had at an RV park. We spent two nights, and it was very convenient to see the local sights. I would definitely recommend this park!

Its off a logging road. The gps was taking us in circles so use the big sign to locate. Great view, very quiet. Lots are very spacious. Campground is centrally located. Very clean. Staff was very helpful. For breakfast or lunch you must goto Bakers bakery and cafe in custer. The wild life loop road was the best. Got stuck in a herd of buffalo for over 45mins. The burrows was even better. Make sure to have windows up. Would want to live here if we could.

| Beautiful park

By user-4611869... on 2017-10-23.

Loved the scenic location huge sites and quiet. We did have a rough check in with the younger gentleman that also is in charge of renting the atvs, but the customer service provided by the older couple more than made up for it. Our truck had broken down and the folks in the office were wonderful in helping making arrangements. We will be staying again.

| Amazing!!

So we were last minute this site... Was on a crazy, Yellowstone.. devils tower and then to Mount Rushmore , Crazy horse.. adventure.. with the wife and kids.. I pulled in after hrs and was placed in a great big site .. for my tiny 19 footer.. was so much room between me and everyone else.. I had no contact with the owner.. because I didn't need to.. as a camper I was prepared to camp.. it was dark! The stars were out in full effect!! Dancing for us.. We took so many pictures of us just relaxing . It what camping is all about.. thank you for making my family a memorable trip.

| Quiet and Spacious sites

We stayed twice. Awesome park! It is near everything. Big rigs are no problem. We could have spent a month here. Just loved it!

| Motorhome camping

By user-5793069... on 2017-10-23.

Loved the Sites very large. Well kept. Very dog friendly. Beautiful areas for hikeing. Off the main road enough for no traffic noise. Close enough for all attractions.

This park is perfectly situated close to the entrance of Custer State Park. Sites are very large, Park is well maintained and staff is friendly. No issues at all. We were here 6 nights but could have stayed longer we enjoyed it that much. Next time!

| Average park

By user-5499025... on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2018-07-24 to 2018-08-02

Park is well maintained gravel sites with grass. Location is good for Rushmore, Crazyhorse and Custer. Restrooms and showers were respectable. Gravel road entrance, water is brown (we didn t drink it), don t buy propane here $4 per gallon Ouch! Not sure where all the 5 star reviews are coming from, this is an average park at best. Stay at Custer State Park if you can much nicer.

| Enjoyed it

By user-6349952... on 2019-08-09.

Off the highway so very quiet, large grassey spaces with fire rings, cleaned the site and let us check in early. All and all a nice place. (paid $50 a night tho after Labor Day).

| Peaceful nook

By user-5428695... on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2018-09-13 to 2018-09-17

Large, grassy lots with lovely trees and rocks all around. Good crushed rock road off the hwy, crushed rock pads, mostly level. No frills, no pool, no dog park etc, but loads of peace and quiet with a million stars. Good wifi, good Verizon but only a few PBS channels will pull in from antenna. Easy access to all local attractions. Cute little town of Custer 4 miles away. Bathhouse looks clean, but we didn't use. We enjoyed our stay, would return.

| Nice

| Close to Custer and Custer SP

By user-5429620... on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2018-09-16 to 2018-09-19

We stayed here for three nights visiting Custer SP and riding Needles and Iron Horse highways. When we checked in the lady told us our registration was made for four nights and that we would have to unhook our motorcycle trailer and place it in their storage area. I started to get upset more about unhooking than the extra night. She was very accommodating and put us in a nice pull through site that fit us perfectly. The park was situated just down the road from the Sylvan Lake entrance to the park and was very convenient to downtown Custer. Aside from being charged the extra night, it was a pleasant campground. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Motorhome.
