Hubby & I camped 3 days here for our anniversary. We have a pop-up type camper. We reserved a certain spot through their off-site reservation system in section B (#70-78). When we arrived at the campground it took a little time for them to find our reservation. The person at the front desk mentioned that they don't get the reservation info automatically from the off-site center--they have to actually go into the reservation site to see all the info. They also wanted our credit card to keep on file for "incidentals". They gave us the map to our campsite and when we arrived at the spot there was already someone else set up in the spot that we reserved. I called the front desk and they said "we gave you number **--it's marked on your map". OK, that was fine, but what was the point of making a reservation for a certain spot if we weren't going to actually get that spot? We started to set up and found that the spots are very close together. We have an 18" slide-out on one side and we had to move the neighbor's picnic table or our slide-out would have hit it. We also have an awning with a screen room attached on the front side of the camper. The screen room almost hit the electrical pole for the adjacent campsite. Since we had never been to this campground before I had asked the reservation center about the site regarding our awning/screen room so I was surprised at how tight the spots were. Let's just say the online map is very misleading. We were in campground section B (70-79).
The bathhouse wasn't too far away from our site which was nice. The woman's side had 4 showers, 3 sinks and 3 toilet stalls. Two showers are in the main part of the bathroom. The other two are out in the common entry area so I'm assuming either men or women could use them. Unfortunately the lighting for those 2 showers is very poor so I don't think they get much use. The bathrooms were very clean the entire time we were there which was great. The only suggestion I could make for management is to have better lighting over the toilets and over the sink in the women's bathroom. The lights over the toilets don't come on until late evening (they're on a timer) and go off before daylight so it's rather dark in the individual stalls during the day. There is one, 2-tube florescent fixture over the 2 main showers and one light fixture with one compact florescent (curlycue) bulb over the 3 sinks. I think most women would like more light to do their hair and makeup.
We walked through the main camping area near the pool to see what it was like and they are definitely packed in tight! If you have kids and want to be near the pool and playground, this is the place for you. If you want a quieter area, go where we were (70-79) or to spots 60-69. I say quieter only because there probably won't be a lot of kids. Otherwise you will still hear a LOT of traffic noise since these spots are right below the main highway into Hill City. Besides the regular traffic there are many logging trucks heading to a wood plant in Hill City. It seems to quiet down during the middle of the night but starts up again very early. There is not a lot of shade in any part of the campground except maybe in the tenting areas. The creek running through the campground is quaint. The bridge near us that was over the creek was dilapidated and didn't look like it was very safe. I started to go across it once but changed my mind.
Another reviewer mentioned the Sheriff driving through the campground at regular intervals. We never saw one the entire time we were there. The campground hosts or maintenance seem to drive through regularly but that's all we saw. Maybe the Sheriff was driving through during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
The campground is definitely well located as far as getting to Mt. Rushmore, Custer, Crazy Horse, Spearfish Canyon, etc.
We didn't eat the pancake breakfast and we didn't buy anything from their little convenience store. The Wi-Fi was OK-slow but good enough to check your e-mail.
All in all we would probably camp here again but would try to get a spot farther away from the highway and see if that helps with all the highway noise--perhaps in #60-69 if they would give us the spot we reserve.

The place was clean upon first appearances... We stayed in a cabin here for 3 nights and it was NOT a clean facitity! The kids loved the pool, but the management did not like the kids. It was located close to the highway with police/ambulance running by occasionally with their sirens blaring. Conveniently located near Mickelson trail and not too far from many traveling destinations. Management were not too friendly and I would definately not come back or refer my friends or family here! For the price we paid, we should have received much much better service!

I didn't know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. Very happy with our decision to stay at this location and this city during Sturgis Bike Week. We stayed in the duplex cabin and it was very clean and comfortable. We would probably stay here again.

I was kindof consirned with some of the reviews on the net. Once I got there I found out the sheriff drives thou 4 times a day, the owners do their rounds of inspection. Bathrooms exceeded expecation, wonderful pool after a long day of site seeing, and everything is with in 20 miles like rushmore, crazy horse, bear country etc is all centerally located from this resort.
They have an option of all you can eat pancakes everymorning, for 3 dollars, and they also have add ons like bacon sausage eggs potatoe biscutes and sausage... wonderful variety for the morning.

I loved the fact we were close to the potties, play equipment, and pool... it made life a lot easier with little kids... :O)

My wife, Daughter and I stayed in a tent at crooked creek for 5 days and enjoyed it very much! We set our tent up next to the creek and close to the bathroom/showers. The staff was excellent and helpful, took the time to stop by our camp site and ask how things were going and also asked if we needed anything and offered tips on things to do in the black hills. The location was excellent! We were able to drive to an attraction go to our camp site for lunch then move on to another attraction with ease. We were fairly close to the highway and had no problems with traffic noise.

This was our second time staying at Crooked Creek campground and would definetly stay there and recommend to others! The grounds were mainted beautifully and we were close to every attraction we wanted to see when we visited.
