Alot depends on what you want for amenities. I like to stay right in Custer SP. The CG on the far western edge of the park. Has all your basics. What I like it is easy jumping grounds for any activities you might want to do, and there is a lot you can do.

X2 for Rafter J, really enjoyed the campground and especially the area.

If you weren't aware, there is a website I use all the time called rvparkreviews.com. Not all are in there, but it's been very helpful for us over the years. As with any user submitted reviews, you have to weigh the different opinions, but it's usually pretty clear what opinions are closer to what I would think. I highly recommend it as one of the tools in the tool box.

Rafter J Bar in Hill City's, SD. This will be our third year at that campground and we have really enjoyed it. Close to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer.

We have stay with Wild Bill's south of Deadwood for the reasonable prices during the rally. Rafter J has a great reputation but we have not tried them yet.


We agree

"...but the KOA was offering a free shuttle to the nightly fireworks which is very tempting to not have to deal with traffic."

Just wanted to be sure you are aware, there are not nightly fireworks, there aren't fireworks at all anymore. There used to be an amazing show for the 4th of July, but it was stopped a few years ago . However, there is a nightly lighting ceremony.

We absolutely loved Custer State Park. We specifically stayed in the Game Lodge campground. Reserve online and early!

Wish I knew that. We would have liked to see them again. The first time we went, they lit them off during a heavy fog. All it did was go boom and turn the fog different colors. Never saw a single firework that night, just the colors of fog.

Big Pine the summer of 2015. Smaller campground, super nice. Would go back in a second.

This will be the most expensive campground in the area, plus they charge a
"resort fee". WiFi is almost non existant, park had standing water for long periods after it rained.
