Great location, close to Mount Rushmore and Sylvan Lake. We stayed in the motel, and it was pretty basic, but cost quite a bit less than most of the hotels in the area. They advertise wifi, but we couldn't get connected, and when I told the staff, they pretty much said, "yeah, you might not get it." We finally connected...

This was our second visit to Crooked Creek. We had a great stay. The updated cabins are very nice. They offer microwave, dorm sized fridge, small table, balcony and a coffee maker. The staff was friendly and offered to bring our wood to our cabin. We opted to have breakfast Saturday morning. Great value and fantastic food. Pricing is a...

This campground is close to Hill city, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Keystone. Beautiful setting, guided us to our site and were very friendly. They had had a lot of rain so we had to get wood to put under our jacks and still sunk a little but overall a good experience, we would stay there again

The location was good for the things we wanted to see. However that was the only positive. It's overpriced for what they offer. Overcrowded. They cram in too many campers without proper number of facilities. The pool is very cold and so tiny kids with parents can barely splash around. It is supposed to be "heated" but I think they...

We were able to secure one of the last spots for our campers, here. When we arrived, we were quickly checked and shown to our spot. John was able to help us back into a very tight area without having other campers move their vehicles. This is a clean and very well maintained campground. Breakfast was a treat at a...

Ok clean friendly staff. Horrible wifi. Pool was cold but kids enjoyed it. Grounds were well maintained with ok space between sites. Quite far from grocery store so stock up before you arrive. Remote but relaxing. No lake or river.

We rolled into Crooked Creek Campground after a two day bike ride from Arkansas. We carry very little gear on these trips, so we'd reserved one of the camp's tents, right next to the creek. The tent was set up when we arrived and the staff hustled up a firepit and got us settled in. Our site was open, easy...

Thank you for the kind words and compliments toward our staff and our Campground. We as owners try our best to hire people who show great interest in the area. By working here for the season they almost become a local. Thank you for the general description of our Breakfast we have no intentions of being an International House of...

I wish we had stayed here! We stopped in just to fill our RV propane tank. When getting ready to leave our truck engine did not start. You know the feeling! Within a few minutes however, we were on the way after a jump start and probably the resolution to the battery problem. The staff were ready, willing, able, and...

The campground is right next to a major highway - the noise was non-stop and quite loud with a abundance of trucks at all hours. The camp itself is also very crowded and noisy. Unless you medicate, you will not rest in this place. Service is pretty much non-existent once you check in. Really a lousy experience - don't let...

We would like to thank you for your review. We don't consider a two lane highway as major a highway but to each his own. We are sorry that the popularity of our campground did not meet your expectations. As far as this so called dump you refer to and the modicum (a small amount) of privacy goes maybe you...
