We booked at Horse Thief based in part on the wonderful reviews and it didn't disappoint, We are a military family traveling under orders from Texas to Alaska staying in a few hotels but mostly tenting our way there. We decided to take a side trip to South Dakota to see things there.
First, Horse Thief is wonderfully situated! It is between Custer and Hill City as well close to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Sylvan Lake, Scenic needles Highway and the 1880 Train. There is a wonderfully twisty drive.
The campsite is wonderfully secluded and quiet. Tenters can camp in areas that are apart from the RV'ers which makes things a little quieter. There are vault toilets in the back of the camp and flush toilets and free showers up at the front,. There is a laundrymat, a small store, a pool and a playground.
We were too busy sightseeing to use the pool, but other people seemed to enjoy it.
When the owner saw us pull up in with our UHaul in tow, she changed our site so that it would be easier for us to manuver in. We felt welcome and happy there.
