Whistler Gulch Campground & RV Park
Reviewed 31 July 2013

This RV park is the closest to the centre of Deadwood City and a bus calls by twice an hour to take you into town ($1). It is a very long and thin park which runs uphill into the gulch and therefore parts of it do not get the sun during the later part of the day – a mixed blessing which also makes it feel a bit claustrophobic since you cannot see out. TV reception is very poor, the internet is very good, washing and drying costs $4, there is a swimming pool and a basket ball court. We booked in advance and were pleased we did this because the park was full (Rodeo weekend), we were checked in helpfully and quickly and given tourist information. We noticed that staff at the park were always on the move tending to things around the park. The pitches were quite close together and our pitch was flat gravel surrounded by grass. We have no complaints at all and consider it good value for what we paid at a peak time of the year.

Room Tip: pitches on the left get the sun more in the evening, those on the right in the morning. Pitches way...

It is a nice park (we have stayed there several times in the past). We planned to arrive there July 16th, 2013 for 5 days. However, we had a medical emergency occur in our family so we had to cancel our entire 2 month trip. We called to cancel at Whistler Gulch today (6-26-13) and are going to be charged $34.40 ($25.00 cancellation fee plus a $9.40 service fee to the reservation agency!). The other RV parks we called to cancel our reservations either did not charge us anything or charged a minimal $5.00 or $10.00. We will not be going back to this RV park as you never know when an emergency will occur (motorhome breakdown, etc), and they certainly were not empathetic about our situation.

The campground is fairly close to town, it's quiet and clean. They have a nice swimming pool and a clean shower house. The RV sites are a little close together but we didn't care because we were there to explore Deadwood and eat in town. One of the great things we really liked was the campground was quiet---and best of all was the shuttles which came around every 45 minutes or so and took us to town for only $1.00 per person, per trip. We will for sure use this campground again when were back in the area!
