Smile Camp grounds in black hills and western side of Yellowstone

Planing a trip to the black hills and Yellowstone in July. We have a 42' class A. Any help in nice camp grounds in that area would help. We know that we will have to stay outside of the park in Yellowstone but was told the western side of the park is the best to stay

We stayed at Wild Bills Camp Ground near Silverado SD in the Black Hills this past July/August. Very nice and clean. Not sure about the 42' Class A, but I think they have room for any size MH. We stayed here in a tent. They do not have a pool or club house, but they do have a clean shower/restrooms and laundry area. There is a restaurant / bar / office. The bar closed at 9pm during the week & 10 or 11 on the weekends. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

Can't help with Yellowstone.

In Hill City we've stayed a couple times at Rafter Bar J. Loved both times. Stayed at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. Make reservations early and get confirmations. You won't be disappointed with the trip.

West Yellowstone. Grizzly RV Park, nice park, get reservations for holidays. We stayed at holiday RV Park on Hegben Lake just north of West Yellowstone and liked it there! West Yelliwstone is a nice tourist town, prices are a little high. Gardiner Montana might be another good place to stay or the campgrounds inside the park. Inside Yellowstone Fishing Bridge has hook ups but is very tight. We love Yellowstone, been there at least 3 times, will return again!

We spent a week at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone last year. This
is an excellent choice as a base of operations. It is big rig friendly, paved
roads, gravel sites, concrete pads and grass. Two blocks to the neat little
town of West Yellowstone. 1/2 mile to the park entrance. Not far from
horse back riding in Idaho, and other attractions in the area. There is
absolutely not a better place to stay, IMHO. It's not the cheapest
spot to stay, but you do get what you pay for in camping and life.
This park is a solid 10+

Spent 10 days at the Buffalo Crossing RV Park. It is pretty nice, great for my dogs, It is directly behind the IMAX. Not extremely crowded. There are some perks to see the Imax shows. The back fence is against Yellowstone Park, and you are about a block south of the entrance road.
The Wolf habitat allows you to occasionally hear them howl, briefly, and a little distant.
You can walk over there.
The Grizzly camp ground is very nice, it is big and pretty busy but again, very nice.
We met some people that had been at KOA, not really pleased, said they were moving to another place, did not explain why. All can be pricy, Buffalo Crossing had the best value and was the newest. Rest rooms and showers were perfectly maintained. Had a great trip. Did not spend a lot of time at camp but it was nice when we did. Wife really liked the gift shop at the Imax.

For the Black Hills, the Rafter J Bar. Plenty of room for the biggest of rigs and central to most all of the sights in the area. For West Yellowstone, Yellowstone Holiday. It's a few miles out of town but while Grizzly is a nice park, you've got nothing to look at other than the side of the RV next to you. At Yellowstone Holiday you're looking across a beautiful lake at mountains.

Mt. Rushmore KOA, Hill City, is wonderful! It's a few miles from Mt Rushmore, 2 pools, waterslide, paddle boats, pancake breakfast, lots of activities, coffee & wine shop, hay rides, horses, etc. It's a true campground resort, if you want amenities like that. We stayed for 5 days.
