We overnighted here as a stop-over to see Mt. Rushmore and the kids ended up begging us to stay another night (or 5!!)
The place is huge and has something for everyone. We were in an RV and got a full hookup slot that was close to the pools and play area. Check in was smooth and friendly with three folks on hand to check people in. They then had someone in a golf cart lead you to your site which, give the size of the place, is a great idea.
The kids had a blast in the pool and play area and there seemed to be a ton of stuff for them to do had we had more time to stay.
They have a few restaurants and small stores at the entrance and we spent a good 45 minutes in the wine\internet bar. The gentleman working there was making home-made fudge and chatted us up when we ordered a couple of glasses of wine to drink while we looked around the store. The store had some cool trinkets and local wines we ended up buying more than we should have :-)
The only down side of the place was the lack of Internet access. Instead of advertising wi-fi and delivering a service that a) you're unlikely to be able to connect to and b) if you do connect it is too slow to be useful, they should just say they don't have it.
We will be heading back here as it's location makes it a nice base to see Devil's Tower, Bad Lands, Wind Cave, etc.
