This park is the absolute best in Sturgis South Dakota and the Black Hills of South Dakota area!!!!! Very clean, friendly staff and guests. The staff treat all guests as family. This park is very well maintained and 5 stars is just not enough for this rating. They deserve nothing less than a 10/10 on everything. This park is simply the best, no other way to put it!
Check-in was easy. The staff immediately gave us a receipt for our stay so that we could go get our South Dakota drivers licenses in Rapid City. Thank you team Sturgis RV! Our spacious pull-through concrete pad site was nice. Wifi was strong. TIP: If you don't need a pull-through, then ask for a site in the upper part of the park. The view is excellent! This park generously offers a free dinner every Sunday night. Ours was spaghetti & lasagna and it was delicious! I noticed that the showers had less hot water in the late mornings versus earlier in the day. Perhaps the water heater is small? $2.50 to wash and $2.50 to dry is very expensive.
Stayed 8 nights here and really enjoyed this park. They keep it exceptionally clean despite the weather. They empty the trash cans daily. They are improving some of the sites with concrete pads that were missing them. We stayed on the top level and it was very quiet with a great view of Sturgis. WiFi was marginal as we got kicked off often but we don't live on the net. The park is a great location as Rapid City is 25 miles, Deadwood is 10 miles. The Badlands can be driven to easily as the Interstate is in great shape. We will stay here anytime we are in the area.
We stayed here a week and toured Deadwood, Spearfish and Black Hills Forest. This park is convenient to all these areas. The lower level is all gravel and most with concrete pads. Staff is awesome! Wi-fi is probably the best we have seen in ANY park! There is a very nice grassy area that is good for walking pets that don't like doing their business on gravel!
Short walking distance to town across a dry creek bed. This walk is not recommended for those who are not sure-footed. Low key place. Clean and the staff is very friendly. No catv. Found only 2 antenna channels. We stayed at the lower level since it was closer to town. No shade to speak of at this level. We did not look at the upper level.
We have stayed at this park for several years and really enjoyed it until this year. Upon arriving we found out the OWNER had increased the daily, weekly, monthly rates 60% over last years off season rates. In addition the rates are going up again over two weeks prior to the motorcycle rally, instead of one week as past years. It will be a 100% increase over the off season weekly rate. Additionally the office is not manned anymore with regular hours, there is no phone number in case you need some help or emergency, and no hours posted for the office to open. We are tired of be gouged by the RV parks and vendors in Sturgis and taken for granted. We will not return. It is one thing to increase your rates during the motorcycle rally but to gouge people off season, and not provide good services we find unacceptable.
