Ron and Angie were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful! The sites were spacious and shady. We even saw a does and her fawns every day. The shower house was clean and they provided firewood ready to burn! Highly recommend this campground!

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the campground. The welcoming staff gave us great advice and even led us to our campsite. They deliver firewood to your campsite at no additional charge. Located just west of town so it was pretty quiet. Wild deer and turkeys wandering through the campground welcomed us our first morning. Very clean bathhouses. Dump...

Unlike other places we stayed on a recent trip to Yellowstone and the Black Hills, Big Pine felt like a real campground. There were tall pine trees as the name implies, and some separation between sites. The shower building was clean and well equipped. It was located about 3 miles from Custer, an easy drive back to town and also...

We came to the Black Hills for a week, and Big Pine was a wonderful home base. It's close to all the attractions, but an oasis of peace among the pines. Our campsite was perfect, with lots of space between us and our neighbours. Ron was great, helping us place our 37' fifth wheel within inches. The laundry and other...

We stayed here in our 32 ft. 5th wheel trailer July 24-31, 2016. The owners were available and the campground was well maintained. We needed a site that would work for our trailer and also help getting backed in and they accommodated us. When hail broke two of our skylights, Ron, the owner, came by to help us put garbage...

This was our first long trip out with our brand new camper. The owners were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The sites were all great. They were spacious enough and comfortable. The bathrooms and showers are well maintained and clean. There are mature trees throughout the campgrounds. The location is situated close enough to all of the tourist locations....

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this campground. The location is perfect, as there is so much to see. The facilities were nice, big and clean. The campsites are spacious and wooded. I wish that we were able to stay more nights here so we had more time to relax by a campfire. The owners/staff were very...

My first American campsite experience after many European. I heard good and bad things about campsites in the USA. This first experience is awesome. We got a beautiful tent site nicely apart from the Big RV's. Overlooking the west towards a little kind of valley with young pine trees, while we are between the big pines. This creates an awesome...

This is the 6th time we have camped at Big PIne. We are very familiar with the Black Hills and this campground has the most natural habitat with many trees and rock outcroppings of any campground in the Hills. The owners, Ron and Angie greet you when you come in and escort you to your campsite, and deliver firewood to...

My wife and I just spent 5 nights in this campground. It is rustic and the owners are very friendly. The first afternoon a hail storm hit the area and the owner was out and about checking on all the campers to make sure we were al ok.
