We travelled from Manitoba and stayed for 6 nights at the Rafter J. The location was great for seeing all the sights in the area, very close to Hill City and Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and Custer State Park.
Our check-in was easy and they accommodated our move to another site to be close to others travelling with us. The store has anything you require from RV supplies to hot coffee, pizzas, ice cream, food, souveniers. The staff was generally quite young but there was a manager present often. There's laundry across from the office.
The sites were very clean and had full hook-ups. The pool and hot tub were cleaned every morning and it was great having it there after a full day of sightseeing. They do have a quiet time of 10p.m. and ask that all fires are out by 11p.m. This was good as the sites were very quiet after 10p.m. and there were no disruptions or rowdies.
They offered a pancake breakfast in the mornings from 7-10a.m. which was adequate for $2.50, nothing fancy but you can't really mess up pancakes. They also do biscuits & gravy and sides for extra $. On Tues/Thurs they have a BBQ night with food & entertainment but we didn't take part so I can't comment on how that is.
We would definitely stay at this site again, they have a wonderful set up with any amenities you could ask for.
