We arrived at Trout Haven on a Tuesday afternoon and were greated by the friendly owners and staff. This is a family owned business and they really take the time to get to know all of their guests. We felt right at home from the get go! My children fished right away and the staff did everything from bait the hook to cleaning the fish. My 10 year old daughter really enjoyed watching the staff clean the fish right in front of her! Some of the crazy staff will even eat a fish heart for a tip of $5.00. Yuck!! The cabins were very clean and newly remodeled. We took our kids on a 4 hour ATV tour with Chuck who was an awsome guide. I was nervous my kids wouln't last but they did and we had a blast. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Chuck knew the trails and showed us some sites off the beaten trail. Anybody staying at Trout Haven has to rent the ATV's and take a guided tour with Chuck! The cafe was a pleasant surprise. The food was fantastic. Breakfast was a highlight of the day! The interior is small but nice, looks newly remodeled. They also serve beer. My only complaint is they didn't stay open longer for cocktails at night, I think they close at 8 pm. Everyday the staff greated my family by our names which was a nice touch. This place is a total package, nice cabins, great cafe with beer, fishing, ATV rentals and great owners and staff! Most other resorts don't take the time to get to know their guests like this one does. If you needed anything extra, they were always willing to get it for you. The location was perfect too. We were between Deaedwood and Hill City which gave us a central location to all the activities we wanted to do. When we return to the Black Hills, we will definately stay here again!
