In addition, the campground has an amazing location, being only 12 miles away Mount Rushmore and a short drive from the Mammoth site and Crazy Horse Monument. Surrounded by family attractions, you won’t ever run out of activities to do.

The campground is spread over 40 acres of old mining territory from the 1800s. It is full of nature and large camping sites. The camping sites and sleeping cabins each have fire rings and tables.
