We stayed in a cabin for 7 days and really enjoyed our time at the campground. We had our own bathroom in the cabin and small AC unit (we just used the fan, the weather was perfect). We have 3 boys who loved running over to play basketball, volleyball, soccer and tether-ball. The pool was pretty cold, but always available...

From the pictures this looked like a really nice campground, we were extremely disappointed. We had a tent site....After staying in National park campgrounds we sort of enjoy the great outdoors. We did not get that experience because our site looked like a parking lot. The pool area looked unkept and deserted; and the slide (which costs $7 per person)...

We had reservations for two nights. Unhappy with another campground a few days before, we called Beaver Lake and asked if we could come earlier. They were very accommodating. The owner took us around on a golf cart and showed us some sites. We got to choose. Site 4 was great. Loved it! 34 not so much. 34 was our...

Our longest stay in South Dakota was at the Beaver Lake Campground. It was a fun place to stay. We rented a cabin for 2 nights and it was a little cramped for 2 adults and 3 children. The bathrooms got a little dirty during peak usage times but were manageable. The grounds were nice, the pool was great and...

Loved the location and sites were very nice with lots of trees. Bunnies were fun to watch! Had a nice pool with slide. We had a nice tent site with a nice shelter and picnic table. Sites had fences for better privacy too. Stayed 4 Nites and very reasonable price

Originally was going to stay for one night as a pass thru but ended up staying for two. Grounds are very nice. Plenty to do for the little ones be that free access to bikes for riding, pool and the water slide which does cost extra. Not to mention the rabbits/bunnies roaming around. That is definitely something you don't see...

Stayed here 4 nights. The water slide was broken the entire time we were there. We rented their car from the front desk. What a nightmare!!! It was so dirty, smelled like smoke and there was dog hair everywhere! The car ended up dying on us at night coming down a pass leaving Mt Rushmore which left us with no...

We regret you were dissatisfied with our rental car,however it was on the third day, of your rental due to alternator failure. A totally unforseeable breakdown. you did use it for 3 days without issue or concern, were given free use for the third day, that you had full use of the car. Apologies were given that evening and the...

We really enjoyed our level, wooded and fairly private RV site for 3 nights. The main pool was 3.5' all around and very nice. The other pool is where the waterslide ends and no one is suppose to stay in it. Our kids (ages 6-14) loved feeding, petting and taking pics of the wild bunnies -- and I mean LOVED!...

Stayed here three nights. Some sites a little tight to get in to. Lots of pine trees. Very shady and scenic at our site. Couldn't hook up our satellite, too many trees and we were right next to a fence. Very hilly everywhere. Bathrooms, showers nice and staff very nice.
