Sure! The one on the way to Crazy Horse looked spacious and an easy fit. We stayed at another NFS (Comanche) West of Custer and we did get 'the beast' to fit, but it was tighter and I don't really recommend it. We also stayed at Custer State Park (Stockade Lake) which was fabulous, but I can't recall if they have walk-ins. There's also a horsecamp NFS with very large 50-foot sites (gotta fit em horse trailers). Look on recreation.gov and you can see the site sizes.


We stay almost exclusively in forest and state parks with our 40 footer and have been doing so for over a year and a half (in fact we're parked in a gorgeous forest right now next to a stream). I keep lists and pics of our stays on the blog. There are definitely spots for larger rigs in the forest.

Thanks all. We made it to Beaver Lake CG in Custer yesterday and was able to find a spot for the three nights we wanted.

Welcome to the forum!

This was our second trip to the Black Hills and we decided it's going to become a regular month long stop on our summer escape from the desert. This trip we got up to Sturgis and spent a couple of days there too. Lots of great stuff to see and do in beautiful countryside.

We arrived at our destination in Minnesota yesterday. The drive across SD was depressing due to all of the water they're having to deal with. Sad to see how many farmers couldn't even get their crops planted.
