“Lakepark Campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

What a super campground! We have stayed there numerous times with our 5th wheel and truly appreciate the pull-thru sites. The nearby lake and bike trail are a bonus to Lakepark. Easy access to the sites of the Black Hills and also shopping :-) The staff is friendly and the campground has very clean showers and laundry facilities. The Best Hidden secret in Rapid City!

We stayed at Lake Park Campground & Cottages in 2010 and liked it so well that we went back in 2011 and have already made reservations for this year. The cabins have all the comforts of home - they are fully furnished and very clean. Our last two stays have been for a family vacation consisting 4 adults and a young child. We stay in a 2 bedroom cabin with a pull out sofa/sleeper and find that we have more than enough room and don't ever seem to be in each other's way. There is always plenty of clean towels and hot water to go around. Each cabin is supplied with a gas grill and picnic table so we always make full use of them. There is a small playground on site and a small lake that you can fish in or you can rent a paddleboat and take a relaxing trip around the lake. The campground has always been very quiet and well kept. All of the staff is very friendly and helpful. If you need something, just ask. It is centrally located for any tourist sites you may want to visit and can easily run back into Rapid for any groceries or necessities you may need. Our son just loves being able to "hang out" at the cabin and can't wait for our vacation this year. If you are looking for a "home away from home" filled with rest and relaxation, I would highly recommend Lake Park Campground and Cottages!

We stayed at Lake Park Campgroound in their cabins in 2008 with our kids and my husband's parents. It cost less than half what it would have cost us all to stay at any area hotel and we had a fully stocked kitchen that saved us on meal costs to boot! The cabins were beautiful with fireplaces, three bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, cable TV, and a log cabin motif. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and quality of the cabins. There were "tame" deer on the property that fascinated the kids as well as a playground and small lake within walking distance. It was centrally located for all of the area attractions as well. I highly recommend Lake Park Campground to anyone, we will be coming back in June and have already booked our stay with them!

We stayed at Lake Park Campground in 2010 and are going back this year. The cabins are awesome. We did day trips, using our cabin as home base. After a day of touring the Black Hills, we would come back to the cabin, and it felt like coming home every day.

Everything you need is supplied. All you need to add is some food, and you.

Room Tip: There are no bad cabins.

This is a campsite that was super clean. I was impressed by the bathroom. The site where we pitched our tent was flat and the area around it was clean. The grounds was well kept.

Room Tip: Many camp bathrooms can be dingy and dirty. This one was clean and thus it is worth the money.

While traveling through South Dakota for a few days stayed here, Very clean, nice living room, 2 nice size bedrooms. The bathroom very small, Husband said the shower was like a coffin with water running through it. The beds were comfortable. Quiet when we were here. A nice stay. I would stay there again. The laundry on sight was nice to have.

It's not a dump, but nothing special here. Had less amenities but was actually more expensive than some of the places we stayed at in the Black Hills. Bathrooms aren't terribly clean, and you tent on gravel. There were also 4-8 kids playing on a swingset in the front yard of what appears to be a private residence on/adjacent to the campground. We talked to them about quieting down twice between 10 and 11pm before finally scaring them enough to go back to their campsites. I wouldn't recommend unless there's nothing better around...
