“Clean Facilities and Convenient Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We camped here for a week in June 2014 and enjoyed our stay. The campground is well maintained with a friendly staff. The gentlemen who escorted us to our spot helped us get set up and checked on us several times during our stay. The campground is centrally located to a lot of the attractions in the Black Hills and only takes minutes to reach the major destinations. We camped with our two young boys and there were plenty of things to keep them busy including the Michelson Trail which travels throughout the entire Black Hills. The bathrooms/shower house were clean and located throughout the campground. The showers were not always hot and went cold while in the shower (brrrrrr). We also thought the pancake breakfast was offered daily and were disappointed when we found it is was only offered on the weekend. Other than these minor things we enjoyed our stay and will camp there again.

We stayed here May 2013 and had a wonderful time. The campground is well maintained, nice bathroom facilities (which is a huge plus when you are camping), friendly staff and delicious breakfast. We loved being so close to everything - drove into Hill City for groceries and also the Steam Locomotive Train tour; headed up to Mount Rushmore (very close); and also Rapid City (had lunch, ice cream, and went to Dinosaur Park). Overall we were very happy with our accommodations at Crooked Creek. Our friends stayed in a cabin and they were very nicely decorated. We would definitely come back again for another stay.

My husband and I, along with two grandkids, stayed here in our 5th wheel camper. We were very pleased with the service and the property. Check-in was smooth, and one of the hosts picked me up at the campsite to go to the office and buy wood, then brought me back again. Not necessary but it was a nice gesture as we had arrived in the evening and were hurrying to set up camp. Kids loved the pool and the playground, and the campground was right on the bike trail. Also great proximity to the sites we wanted to visit, i.e. Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, 1880 train, Custer State Park. We would stay here again.

We stayed in the motel portion of the camp. It cost $100 dollar per night. We stayed two nights. We soon realized we could have had much better motel stays for the same or less money. The outdoor pool was not open, the arcade room was not open, there was no continental breakfast, the wifi was so slow it was not useable, they did not clean our room after our first day, they closed the office early (around 6 pm) the second night. We could have had an indoor, free breakfast, faster internet, and better room care at another place.

We are sorry that our Resort was not up to your expectations. The pool was closed due to repairs. Unfortunatley our weather conditions limit us to when we can do such outside work. wi-fi is limted in the "Black Hills area" therefore some devices are blocked by our provider. We have signs posted in the office and on the web site that wi-fi is limited. We have a hot spot availble for temporary use in the office. Housekeeping is done upon request. There is a made sign that hangs on the back of the Motel room door for this service. We do not advertise a free continental breakfast. We advertise breakfast served from June through September starting with a .99 cent pancake to an $8 big breakfast. I quess we just need more signs. Again sorry.

If you want to be treated rudely then stay here. It seems that they must have changed ownership or people working in the office but Michelle is the rudest person we have ever dealt with in all of 40 years of camping. We actually cancelled our plans due to her rudeness.
I will be posting this information on all camping sites to warn people.

I, Michelle am extremly sorry for the rudeness that I have caused to you and your family. I have been in the tourism industry for 20 some years and it is not my practice nor the company's practice to promote rudeness. As human beings we sometimes make mistakes. Our abilty to correct those mistakes starts with you the customer. Since you did not get a chance to expiereince your Black Hills vacation with us we hope you would reconsider the furture. The resort it self should not be judged by just one employee alone.

Stayed here for a week for a grownup getaway. We stayed in one of the camping cabins with electricity but no a/c. I was worried I would be too hot without A/C but it was fine. And we didn't sit in the cabin in the middle of the day. It was clean and appointed as expected. The bathrooms were close by. We loved the having the option for breakfast in the barn every morning and bottomless coffee if you bought a mug. The staff there was great. The front desk clerk was always friendly and made us feel welcome and was happy to answer our tourism questions. We plan to go back this summer with the kids.

Stayed here for 4 days at the end of sept. I stumbled upon their website after not being able to find many other cabins due to the buffalo round up. They were running a september special for 50% off cabins, ended up being about $66/night which I thought was a great value. The location was fantastic for a black hills vacation. We stayed in cabin 2, it was clean and cozy. I especially love the fact that it was equipped with a fridge, toaster, and microwave, and had a bathroom right in it, so no shared bathroom! Every cabin also had a full size grill so that was awesome. My complaints are nothing major, just the close proximity to the highway made for campfires with lots of road noise. The bathroom was small and akward, but still better than using a shared bathroom. Customer service was so-so, the only time I had contact with staff was during check in and check out and I can't say I was disappointed, but it wasnt anything candy coated either. All in all, I'd stay here again if I could get a deal on a cabin, not sure that I'd pay the peak season rate though. A note to anyone looking to reserve a cabin!: cabin 3 does not have a fire pit...we stayed in cabin 2 and had one, but felt bad for our neighbors who did not.
