Big Pines is one of the best camping experiences we’ve had in our five years of travelling. Beyond the typical amenities, Big Pines offers a quiet, secluded forest atmosphere and is close to many great sites and activities in the South Dakota Black Hills area. Big Pine owners, Ron and Angie, take great pride and work very hard to make...

We just returned from a trip to the Black Hills where we stayed 4 nights at Big Pine Campground. The campground is the perfect location for seeing all the sites in the area. Clean, quiet, beautiful! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

In addition to being a beautiful park (assuming you prefer trees and level gravel pads over concrete with some grass), we are constantly visited by wildlife...deer, turkeys, squirrels and the occassional not-so-wild cat. The pines are mature and plentiful. The sites are very large offering fire rings and picnic tables. The owners are friendly and helpful. The owner even helped...

Our site, 30, was ok, close to next camper. 9ther sites had more space and glass, th8s 8s all gravel. We opted for sewer, water, electric, some sites with no sewer were nicer. Site 31 across the road would be better choice.

I stayed 3 nights at Big Pine, in their tent camping area. As others have noted, the staff/owners are VERY friendly and helpful. They were excellent to correspond with prior to my visit, and equally helpful while I was there. When you check in they ask if you want firewood (and $4 for a good-sized bundle is good in my...

We stayed in Big Pine for 2 nights. The folks who run Big Pine are very nice and very helpful. I really felt like they went out of their way to make us comfortable. The camp is nestled among pines and has plenty of room between each camp site. You definitely don’t feel like you are on top of each...
