What Our Campers Say About Us!

Beautiful, clean rv park!! We loved it! Picnic table, fire ring. Store want stocks with food yet as it was beginning of season, but we still found everything we needed. Our view of the lake was peaceful. Great star overall!! Staff was helpful & informative! Clean restrooms, nice showers.

Stayed here 2 nights in July 2019. In making advanced reservation over the phone I happened to say I agreed that ‘it would be nice to be near the restroom.’ So that’s what they did, put us in campsite # 1 in a 22’ travel van that was quite literally right next to the bathroom/showers, putting us inside the “L” area of that and a garage, and literally a few feet from a large propane tank! Needless to say the aesthetics were poor and not at all appealing! This should NOT be a campsite or at least not a full pay site! There was nothing else available and no compensation. We did however get another very nice site for our second night. Staff member Mike went above and beyond and was very kind in diffusing the situation and helping us find a new site. When we were ready to leave the campground our battery decided to go kaput. Jim, one of the maintenance guys, happened to be checking out a cabin next to us and we asked for help—not knowing how much help we'd get after our first campsite issue. This man patiently went beyond the call of duty driving me to a NAPA store and installing it to get us back on the road! The only thing that tops that is that he would not accept any compensation! So, it all started at Beaver Lake on a low note but ended on a high note. Thanks Mike and Jim, can’t thank you enough!

The sites are very decent sized! They also have wifi available. Everyone was super nice and helpful! Definitely plan to go back!!
Megan Kubes
Great campground, owners, and office dog. The site I selected online was not the best so we were easily able to switch to a more desirable site. Bathroom facilities were immaculate. Trash disposal very convenient. Would definitely come back and am looking at planning a tripAnd staying at their northwest coast location☺
David Vinnola
Nice campground with a water slide and pool for the kids. They also have small cabins with no bathroom and other bigger cabins with a bathroom and kitchenettes.

Joan Rader
Have been here many times and it never disappoints! Very accommodating staff and owners. Clean and quiet, beautiful setting. Spacious pull throughs. Home away from home!
Lynn Cirbo
Beaver Lake Campground is a very well put together and well taken care of campground that has sites and RV spots as well. They have a little building in the middle that is the showers, bathrooms, laundry room, store and food center. The staff here is incredibly nice, and the gift shop is very cheap in there so make sure to grab some stuff. the spots have water and electric and they have Wi-Fi throughout most of the sites. Would highly recommend if you plan on being near the south western part of South Dakota for the tourist things.

We had the best experience here, so much so, we stayed twice this summer! The pool was heated, but still refreshing; and our kids spent hours at the shady playground. The sites were lovely and the owners were accomdating. Quick trip down the hill to Custer for coffee, donuts and shopping.
Patti Sosa
Nice spot to land. In the center of the black hills area. Lots of things a short distance away.
Neal Juers
Very clean, very friendly, very nice campsite!! Will be coming back for sure.
Friendly staff clean bathrooms close to everything in the black hills
Paula Berg
Great campground and amenities. However, the wifi was terrible. If you work remote like I do it will be difficult.
Douglas Oman
Spent 2 nights here. Clean sites. Ours had plenty of space. Clean restrooms and nice shower heads. Dish washing area and laundry facilities. Wifi not the greatest and cell reception bad (Verizon) . Didn't visit the pool but looked nice. Slide is out of service due to Covid-19. Nice fenced area for the pups.

We really enjoy this campground. We looked into other Rv parks in the Custer area and by far this is the nicest campground we found. The owners and staff are all top notch. Very helpful and professional. Great place to stay.
Donnie Knittel
Great spot and convenient. Spots are a little tight. But drinking has water fill spots and a nice pool area.
We got a tent site. Good prices with loads of on-site amenities. Well-stocked store and pool. They offer wi-fi, but when I connected it wouldn't allow me access to the internet. Overall a nice site. Wife and I have stayed here 2 years now and would recommend to anyone visiting the Custer area.
Charlie Dango
It was clean and well cared for. The showers and bathrooms were kept very clean and well stocked. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. It was in a great location for site seeing and traveling between places. The only problem was we were quoted one price per night and on our receipt we were charged $6 more per night, which I think is dishonest.

We stayed here one night (July 4th), wanting to see Mt. Rushmore on the way to Yellowstone. Great location for that. We had a back-in space with a 38 ft 5th wheel. Camp hosts brought us to the spot and gave tips on backing in. Hubby made it first try! Very quiet. We didn’t use the amenities since we heard there were fireworks in Custer and we drove there in our truck. They were ok for a small town. We saw some deer and rabbits from our space. Nice park and friendly people working there. ATT coverage was fine, T-Mobile was not – we have both.

Nice campground, perfect location for blackhills vacation. Could have longer pool hours
Gordon Robare
This by far was our Favorite campground on our RV trip to Mount Rushmore. Beaver Lake campground was perfect for our family, with a heated warm swimming pool, was 3 1/2ft deep all around & waterslide... But the slide is closed for the 2020 season due to covid-19... Also has Free WiFi near the pool area. The RV site was perfect & quiet in a back cul de sac, has plenty of room, a metal firpit & grate with a Covered roof over the picnic tables... Originally I didn't think anything of it, but that roof was so great as it rained both evenings, so it was nice to eat and play under it! This place was a little more expensive than some, but the pool made it worth it. Would definitely recommend this campground.
We have nothing but good things to say about this campgrounds. Our RV was broke down in their campgrounds and they went well above and beyond to ease our stress and be helpful. The campsites are cute, their shower houses and laundry facilities were very nice, and the pool was a bonus for our kids. The staff were very nice and friendly.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Would definitely stay here again.
Well organized and clean. Friendly staff.

Shady, quiet campground. Close to downtown. Office staff wasn’t too friendly - asked a few questions and got one word answers. A little pricey compared to similar campgrounds.
Fran Walker
Location close to Custer National Park, and easy to get around the area. Pool and water slides were closed when we were there d/t COVID-19 but was present along with a playground, green space for ball kicking/throwing, horseshoes, basketball hoop (small surrounding area). The showers/bathrooms were very clean and hot water was plentiful. Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. Staff was very helpful and speedy with onsite firewood purchases. Laundry present onsite as well as a sink for washing your items outside of your camper/RV. I would stay here again.
