Rafter J Bar is a nice option as well as Palmer Gulch KOA. Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort in Spearfish is very nice as well. Rush-no-more campground in Sturgis is very woodsy and nice too. Hope this helps.

+1 on Palmer Gulch KOA. Very nice campground. One note, cell phones don't work at the campground and wifi is not so good.

We stayed at Rafter J Bar ranch as well. We were there for the 4th of July last year. We absolutely loved it there. We had our 40 ft DP pulling a jeep. We had plenty of room

Beaver Lake in Custer also fits what you're looking for.

Spent a few days the summer at Ft. Welikit just outside of Custer, SD. Plenty of trees. We had our 35' coach and toad in our site with plenty of room. Enjoyed our stay there.

We've stayed at the Rafter J Bar many times over the last 20 years. You can choose to be in the trees, or out in the open. I don't remember any problems with phone reception (we carry our own WiFI hot spot so I can't comment on internet access) It is perfectly located for access to all the area sights. Rapid City may have some nice parks but it's too far from everything we're there to do and see.

As an aside, I suggest you create a signature that describes your coach. It will help guide any looking to help you in the future.

Stay at one of the many campgrounds in Custer State Park! They all have shade and are nice wide open sites. The campground at the National Park Cave (the name escapes me) is also good, but not as shady.

Anyplace you stay will be great!

Not sure how near the action you want to be, but in 2012, we stayed in Rapid City at Lake Park Campground and Cottages (Lake Park Campground - Home). It was not fancy but plenty adequate and among large Cottonwoods.

Hart Ranch in Rapid City is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

We stayed at Holy Smoke close to Rushmore in July, including July 4th weekend. No pool, restrooms, etc., but full hookups. Quiet, inexpensive, convenient and room for our DP and toad. Nice and shady, which was important when hot. Some of the reviews say the sites are not level - ours was - and that you go somewhere difficult to check in - it was in an office right at the entrance for us. Website says there is a cafe, but apparently owner died and it is closed. Probably not a nice as Rafter J Bar but they were full.
