Stayed here three nights in April of 2012.Enjoyed it very much. Great host.Highly recommend.
We stopped here for three days! It was very convenient to town so we could walk. The facilities were adequate but the service was excellent
Came here because of Passport America! Very nice campground in a great location with awesome campground host's/owners. Rock, the host, is one of a kind but real. He gave us a great recommendation for dinner (Mac's Grub) and said he wouldn't send us anywhere he wouldn't eat. If you're ever in Custer area (Mount Rushmore) I highly recommend you stay at the French Creek Campground.
The manager is nice. That's it. This place is rundown and needs work. Stay some place else.
If your looking for a mom n pop campground with FHU's. Somewhere to base yourself that's close to everything you want to see in this area like we where. This place was great. We stayed a week, manager even hosted a pot luck dinner. If your after resort or state park type setting this is not the place for you. We enjoyed our stay and the people we met. Walking distance to downtown Custer...open in the off season!
Tight fit. But worth it for close location to town. Use a water pressure reducer. Friendly host
Unique one-of-a-kind campground and owners. 1 block walk to the main street shops . Love the unique bathrooms. About a 20 site park. paid $33
Cute little place. A little primitive but it has a nice feel to it. Right down in Custer so close to a lot of things. Cook out on Friday nights. Electric only is $30 with a break for Sams Club.
This is a small RV park walking distance to shops, restaurants and town park. All sites are back-in. The sites are all straight back at a 90 degree angle from the camp road (verse at in angle to the road to make it a little easier backing-in). If you are unsure of backing-in or have a big rig it can be very difficult especially if in the sites on both side of you also has big rigs. We have a 32' 5W with a short bed truck. With the 5W as far back as the site would allow, our truck over hung into the camp road about a foot. Anything larger would require the truck (toad, car trailer, 2nd vehicle, etc) to be parked on the public road just outside of the park.There is no room for awnings, which was fine, as we seldom use ours. The rates were good. I think they are the only park in the area that offers a Passport America Discount. They charge $2 for cable. The cable at our site didn't work. This is a good location to visit Crazy Horse Monument.
Came in after hours. Called the number and when I asked if they had spots, the guy said "lady, it's 1030 at night." When I said thank you assuming they were full the guy said to wait and there was openings and passed the phone to his wife. She said to pull into any open spot and pay in the morning. The spots that were open had wireless, electric and sewer but none of the two open spots had working water. What made it interesting was that we came the weekend before Sturgis bike week so there were bikers all over. Which made it fun.
We squeezed into our back-in site. Luckily our neighbors did not have their awning out, otherwise we would not have fitted in. The best thing about the park is that it is one block from the main street. Sites are gravel, restrooms are ordinary (at best). Our neighbor had to retract their awning in the morning to let us out! Passport America rate justified a one night stay, but I would not pay full price. There seemed to be another very small park next door which may be better.
A good place to stay and see the sights in the area. Diane is a great host. Had pork bbq on Friday night with pot luck. Had a death in the family and had to leave early but was refunded fees. Will be back! PA park.
