We stayed in a very nice campground near Mount Rushmore a few years ago, but can't remember the name. We have friends planning a trip there this summer and would like a few places to suggest in the area. Any suggestions?

Hello,
Crooked Creek resort at Hill City is a very nice campground. We have stayed there when going to Mt. Rushmore. (2 times) The rate is $23-$41 and they are Passport America. I hope this helps. There is a KOA that is very close to Mt. Rushmore. We stayed there only one time. It is very pricey has 333 sites. If your friends have children, it has two pools and lots of things for children to do. These are the only two campgrounds we have stayed at.
Good luck!!

I am going this summer and picked Rafter J after hearing good things about it. Remember Bike Week is the first week of Aug and it may be hard finding a vacancy during that time frame.

There are very many great campgrounds all thru the Black Hills. Rafter J is indeed one of, if not the nicest in the hills. You may also want to move around and stay in different places, as there is alot to see all over the hills. Enjoy

The KOA Mt. Rushmore was very nice we stayed there a couple of years ago on a trip west. Close to Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monuments. They also had stables on the grounds we had a great time horse back riding through the Black Hills.

This is the place if you have kids going with you.

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">We stayed at Rafter J in Hill City. Very close to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse and a short drive to Custer State Park. We drove through the other campgrounds in the area and found this one to be the nicest (in our opinion ). The sites are more spacious and there is a nice open feel to the place. Nice pool that wasn't overly crowded, gorgeous view of the big open sky at night, $2 all you can eat pancake breakfast each morning, horseback riding, etc. </span>

We stayed at "Rushmore Shadows" during our summer 06 mis-adventure. It is located just outside Rapid City, SD.

Good cost, had many features, and seemed to have a discount for every club.

Ditto here. We stayed there in '06, it's a nice, clean campground. They had a $2 all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Lots of things for kids and close to Mt. Rushmore & Crazy Horse. Just avoid the area during August as there is a motorcycle rally nearby that spills into the area.
