We visited this campground for the first time in June and loved it. Office personnel were polite and very helpful. The campground is quiet, wooded and great for families. It's close to a number of monuments and parks. Visited Toughrock Falls and Sturgis. We would visit again anytime we are in the area.

Our first time in our new camper we chose Horse Thief Campground because of its central location in the Black Hills area. The very welcoming and helpful staff made our Black Hills vacation totally perfect. Nice sites, clean and updated bath/shower house laundry, pool and more make this a great place to stay!
