Entering the park on the dirt/gravel road is a slow process if you don't want to be completely engulfed in dust. The owner is friendly and helpful, and while the facilities are limited, this is the lowest priced park (with Passport America) in the area. Long gravel/grass pull thru was fairly level, in full sun, and the hookups were accessible. Road noise was not an issue for us, just a drone in the background, and the train only runs twice during the day. Park WiFi was generally usable, and Verizon cell/data was strong. Pay cable service, but plenty of OTA channels and no obstructions to TV satellites. Convenient to Rapid City and the Black Hills. A good stay if using Passport America. - Meanderman

The staff was friendly and courteous. The water pressure was good. The WiFi was not great. We had good service on our ATT phones. There was adequate room for truck and RV but the sites were close. A little bit of noise from the highway but not bad enough to keep us from sleeping. We used this as a base for the activities around Rapid City. - Dennis Bennett

Older RV park just outside Rapid City. The owner is fabulous. Very helpful, friendly, and works hard to maintain the park. Each site is level with dirt and grass. There is a picnic table at each site. Spacing is good, but there are no trees or privacy. All the utilities worked well and are convenient. Park WIFI is fabulous - fast and stable. Cell phones signals are strong for both Verizon and ATT. Access roads are gravel and easy to navigate, though dusty. Laundry is $2.50 for wash or dry. They have a propane filling station onsite. The bathrooms and laundry are "surface clean". Tops of dividers, window sills and corners are dirty, have cob webs, and spiders. The entire park is showing it's age, needs upgrading, painting, and deep cleaning. The park is next to the highway with never ending noise. There are train tracks between the park and the highway with a trains passing few times a day. Rated as Average. We might stay there again due to the great owner, but the constant highway noise is not pleasant. We would look for other options first. - Pacatrader

We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The park is spacious and has an "out in the country" feel to it. The lots are spacious and maintained very well. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. The park is very near to Mt. Rushmore, Sturgis, Deadwood, and even Devil's Tower in Wyoming. We definitely recommend this RV park and we will stay here again when in the area. - Todd and Karen

We met friends there or we may not have stayed. Quite expensive for what it offered. Clean restrooms and laundry. Good Verizon service. Easy access to Mt. Rushmore. Large pull thru. Way out in the country but easy to get to. Farms all around and peaceful and quiet. Their monthly rate isn't bad but you can not make reservations and with the limited sites you take a chance of driving all the way out there and finding it full in the high season. - rhianna

This is a good place to stay if you want to get away from the interstate and experience what the area is about. The host was nice. The site was plenty big. Everyone was friendly. The scenery and ambiance is nice and relaxing. The weather can be exciting. There was hail a few times. You can drive to Mount Rushmore from here pretty easily and Sturgis and Deadwood are up the road a bit. Rapid City has everything you might need. - skyshark

Don't know why more people haven't reviewed since 2016. We stayed a week in June & moved to our mailing service in Box Elder for a week but they kept having to move us & w/4 slides thats a pain. We decided for the last week or 2 of our stay, we would move back up here to Piedmont. Were here for 4th of July & being the Campground literately is on I-90, across the highway was a fireworks store. For 3 nights leading up to the 4th & on the 4th we had awesome fireworks show. The campground is roomy, plenty of spaces and space between, picnic tables, (had fire rings but SD is under a no fire law right now with drought, so they removed them) There is a mobile home park on the far side of the restaurant and the campgrounds on the other far side of the restaurant. There is a $1.20 washer and a free dryer. Nice clear and clean (but very busy) swimming pool. Some trees, some spaces are shaded, some out in the open, some partial shade. There are TeePees to rent and little cabins with small porches and rockers on them. There are permanent RVers here in much much older RVs but areas around their RVs are pretty clean and neat. For some reason I-90 traffic is not alot and we never hear any of it unless we sit outside but then it isn't like you can't hear each other type noise. It is family owned and they are all welcoming and pleasant. Very easy going. Restaurant has a minimal menu. More like a bar menu...but reasonable and the few times we tried it, their food was good. A few sites are not level enough for big rigs but while here they were putting out more rocks and dirt to help with that. But there are plenty of sites so if you are large like us 40' with toad, you will find spaces with and without shade. BTW, the spaces you have seen mentioned that have canopies, they are wood canopies with concrete decks but are very limited & cost more. Wifi is good but not secure. AT&T worked great. We like it here alot and if we came back to the area, we would stay here in a heartbeat. - Victoria Grace

Great campground for the price. Some sites are gravel, some are grass. A few sites have a patio with a small roof over them. Also a restaurant/bar with great people, drinks, and food. Wifi worked well for the campground, we were the week after sturgis so the place was only about half full. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

Campground is between Rapid City and Sturgis. We stayed at a cabin for a few nights then a tent site for over a week.
Rates are unbeatable: $50 a night for an air-conditioned, medium sized cabin with two Queen sized beds, which includes a fridge/freezer.
The $10 per night tent sites (that's right: 10 bucks a night), include electric, lots of space and a covered picnic table.
There are several buildings with bathrooms and showers, somewhat outdated looking but fully functional.
Owners are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you out if you are in a bind. They are laid back and leave you alone.
Nice little restaurant/bar on campground premise with good food and good people. No noise from the bar/restaurant as it is someways away from the campground.
Downside: somewhat close to I-90, but at night the hwy is pretty quiet.
Friendly residents, friendly owners: nice little place in an otherwise barren and inhospitable land.
Also free wifi (no password) rocked in the tent site area. - mynyel

I stayed for almost 3 weeks. Easy access to I-90 for all my sight-seeing. I have never stayed anywhere but Holiday Inn when traveling. This was not a Holiday Inn! It was clean with a very comfortable bed, wi-fi and cable tv. The nights were incredibly peaceful. The staff was very nice and I found myself very reluctant to leave due to the beauty of the overall area and the "down home" feeling of my room which had a covered porch that I enjoyed in the evening. Young kids probably would be bored but I was traveling alone and loved it! Looking forward to going back with my husband. It is a very old place which was part of the attraction for me but might be a problem for people who only want "new/modern". No pool or hot top but also (while I was there) no loud neighbors, no sounds of doors closing at all hours or people talking in the halls. Might be very different during Sturgis Rally. - Gracie Dickson

We stayed here while doing some business in the area. Owner was very friendly and helpful. It has easy access to and from I-90. Some traffic noise but not overwhelming. We stayed around the 4th of July and enjoyed nightly fireworks displays from the firework booths on the other side of the highway. That may be good or bad depending on if you like that kind of thing or not. Free WiFi and Cable TV both worked well. The layout of the camp sites were not set up well. Some sites are set up with utilities set up on the wrong side and cause confusion as to what site they belong to. We had to go back 3 times to get a site that would work for us. Either there was no water available, or the site was on the side of a hill and we would not be able to level our coach. The bathrooms were somewhat rustic but usable. Shower stalls were nice size, big enough for a large man. We were there 11 days and noticed the bathrooms and showers were only cleaned twice. Laundry facilities were located in the women's restroom, so if you are a man doing laundry, you need to holler in and make sure there are no females present. We did not see a club house or hot tub as listed on the PA website. Price paid is through PA and is good year round with the exception of Sturgis (usually in August). It was somewhat disappointing as the park is in a good location, but could really use some TLC. We noticed the park was up for sale when we arrived. We would stay here again short term, mostly due to the PA price. - Bubzug

This RV park is not a resort. It appears to have been built in the 1950s and hasn't seen much in upgrades over the years. Roads and pads are dirt. There are nice grass tent sites on the south and west sides. There are a number of cabins that seem to be in pretty poor repair. A car lot has been established on the north side and the part adjoining the park looks like a junk yard. An old dumpster is right at the entrance. I think the Sturgis motorcycle rally keeps this place open. - okdiver

We stayed for 5 days and loved it. The cabin was neat and clean. Nothing fancy but roomy and the air conditioning was nice and cold. The grounds and pool were clean and kept. We enjoyed the community grill. With the lodge it would be a great place to have a reunion whether you're in an RV or cabin. The staff was kind and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!! - Dawn_Threet

We loved it here! Laundry area was clean & all washers & dryers were working!! Huge pool, showers & restrooms & absolutely beautiful views of the Black Hills. Quiet location too. - rssevere

We stayed in the back 40. It was just a dried up field with dog droppings all over. We did have 50 amp and sewer. The water faucet leaked but we did have adequate pressure. The staff was friendly. Would not stay here again. The flies were awful. - Jeanne Rapp
Jul 2018 - $57.00
Office staff very friendly and helpful. Good internet. We thought the cinder blocks used as site identifiers were dangerous; it would be easy to trip and fall. Right next to Canyon Lake Park, a great place to walk the dog. - Jim Bakker

This park got good ratings but, we were very disappointed with our site. This is an older family owned park coupled with cabins for rental also. We had a pull through and after we pulled in there was a telephone pole so close I could only extend my awning a short distance. The spacing was very close although there were a couple sights with good spacing. We were here for 11 days. The close by lake and stream was good for my visiting grandson and I got to do some fishing. The trees are so thick there is no chance of a satillite signal but, we were able to get local channels with our antenna. The WiFi was acceptable. Our sight was mostly dirt and some gravel. We did put our rug out to sit on but, it had to be swept because of dirt and rocks blowing on. The trash bins were located on an adjacent street in the cabin areas so it was a long walk to empty trash. This location was good for a base to work from to see all the sites in the area. The visit was OK but, we would never stay here again. - Larry Jenkins

This is a small park - just about 40 sites. Half of them are on the south side of the park, with limited satellite TV access and no 50 amp (30-20 amp only) and no cable. The other half are on the north side with 50 amp and cable but no chance of satellite TV. The 50-amp sites cost ten dollars more per night than the 30-amp sites. If you want cable, the remote offered is an extra $5. Huge trees throughout the park are beautiful but make for tight roads and turns. We did manage with out 38' motorhome, however. The park is run by some of the nicest people we have ever encountered in 18 years of RVing. They were so helpful, and just lovely. The park is very convenient to town and there is a wealth of things to do in a 50-mile radius. Make sure you know where your site is before you leave the office. The site numbers are very hard to see as they are painted on bricks on the ground behind the picnic tables! - SusanRon

The RV sites are located at the corner of E. Centre St and Cambell St. The entrance is on E. Centre. There is no staff at the RV park. Pull in to any site, disconnect your toad, drive south on the interior dirt road with your toad, make a right turn and look soon for the office at 800 San Francisco Street. Go in, pay $30., get a tag telling the date you will be leaving. They will send a person to unlock your electric post. Same price, 30 or 50 amp. The person they send will know which sites are 30 and which are 50 amp. Important: call first to be sure a site is available. While only 5 sites were occupied when we stayed, if an event is scheduled, like a fair, then it is unlikely a site will be available. Office open M-F, 8 AM to 5 PM. GPS: since the RV park has no address, you can use 600 Cambell St., the address of a local business across the street. Once there, the park will be obvious. Use Exit 60 from I-90 and drive south looking for signs "Central States Fair Grounds. Very good overnight stop. No shade. Level. - michcamper38

We stayed overnight here to be close to a service location the next morning. It serves the purpose of an overnight stay; long pull-thrus, gravel sites, good power and water. Small trees, dead grass, a bit of road noise, and on the night we were there, lots of empty sites. Check-in is by phone and they'll send someone out to unlock the power box and collect the fee. Surprisingly, the rates do not change during the Sturgis Rally, although even then there were few people using the park. Convenient to the Freightliner dealer and Rapid City, otherwise there are much better places for just a few dollars more. - Meanderman

Used this campground because it was only $30 compared to most I called around here which was $60 and up. Some of the sites were on concrete but I chose a gravel site as it was closer to the showers. Was a good place for seeing the sights of Mt. Rushmore etc. The price is the only thing this campground has going for it. - trailmaster

This rv park is a field with some underground services ran. No one was there upon our arrival. The sites we had received were either not available or did not have working services. Finally the "owner" drove by and told us to just find something that would work and hook up. There is a great store with RV supplies at Jack's Campers, but no other amenities are provided. We stayed 2 nights while visiting Devil's Tower. - larrye

This was just a stop over for us that was cheap and convenient off the interstate. Campground was unkept with no amenities but the price was right. - cruzin57

As most of the reviewers have mentioned, this is the rear parking lot of Jack's Campers in Piedmont, SD. There are absolutely no amenities here, only the basic full hook-ups including water, sewer, electric, and Wi-Fi. There is no cable TV, but our external antenna picked up sufficient channels to be satisfactory. It is very quiet here, even though it is fairly close to I-90, but after the first night, we hardly noticed the traffic.
During our stay, there were a half-dozen RV's in the "park" but only three were occupied, so there was very little internal traffic. Jack's is still parking some of their units close to the cabin with the Wi-Fi antenna, but we had sufficient service/signal during our stay.
My only complaint, and it is very minor, is that the grass around the pedestal is not cut, so I had to pull weeds and grass to find and hook up to the sewer connection. It just looks unkempt. They should also decide if the pull-thru sites are going to be gravel or grass, as the grass is taking over the sites.
This CG is convenient to the Black Hills and all the activities in the general Rapid City area. For $17.00 a night, it can't be beat. - Love To Travel 2

Stayed 2 nites this year and have stayed once also in 2016. Wonderful friendly and helpful owners (Arkansans who retain their wonderful southern charm and hospitality) and staff. We had a major problem with one of our brakes which he discovered while escorting us to our site. He got us the help we needed thru a friend when no one in town was going to be available for many days! A former mechanic, he even helped in diagnosing our problem. Not enough room here to express all our gratitude for the Good Samaritan style help given. Restrooms were very clean and tidy. It's an older campground tiered in levels overlooking beautiful Rapid City and the roads are a bit bumpy so you have to mind your step walking down and up the hill. Sites are smallish for our 40 ft rig. Nice clean doggie relief area. Has a small store for essentials. - HollyLouise

Only stayed here to have RV serviced locally. Friendly staff guided to our gravel site and it was not level. The road in was very uneven and pitted. It's an old, somewhat tired park and not big rig friendly as spaces were narrow and very close together. Would not stay here again. - jodik

Very close to Mt. Rushmore, downtown, and all the sites around the area. Park had good power, water, sewer and wifi was decent. Sites were dirt and gravel and fairly level. There were several big rigs including ours and all were accomodated. We could not park our toad at our site, but it was very close by. The management was great and very helpful. There was a Walmart within 15 minutes and several restaurants near by. - Tomandgloria

The staff was very friendly. They seemed glad to have RVers stay the night. There is plenty of room in the back of the level parking lot. There was no cut grass anywhere which would make it difficult for those with dogs. There is no charge, but the website required at least $1. Be sure to shop at Cabela's to show your appreciation. - Debnroux

Nice place for an overnight and free dump. You can access Cabelas easily from I-90. The RV parking has all paved sites, very quiet even though it is close to the freeway. - simonsrf

We stayed here overnight in a 40' motorhome. The Cabela's store is right off of I-90 in Rapid City. They have a huge parking area for RVs and campers who want to stay overnight for FREE. It is no-hookup dry camping, however, they have on-site potable water spigot as well as a free RV dump at the back of the parking lot. The area is lighted very well at night. We felt very safe. You can run a generator if you have it in your camper, but, observe good noise limits with your fellow camping neighbors if there are any. We would definitely stay here again. - Tiffinatic
