“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Stayed for 2 nights June 2014. Location was perfect- right next to Bear Country and just a quick drive into Keystone. Well maintained grounds. A bit close to the highway though we did not hear traffic noise at night. We stayed in the large cabin with bunk beds. It was one large open room- good for large groups/families but not if you need privacy. Dog friendly and perfect for our large dog. Security could have been better- the locks on the cabin doors were not very reassuring. Cabin had an above average number of spiders. Then again, it's at a campground. Would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Dog friendly staff and cabins.

Excellent resort featuring many different accomodations from tenting, RVs, cabins, group lodges.
Well sheltered with excellent facilities and close to all of fthe area attractions. Reasonable rates with AAA/CAA discounts available. Staff and management are courteous and helpful. We have enjoyed coming back year after year. Excellent for cycling or motor biking to near by towns.

Room Tip: RV sites are roomy and not bumper to bumper. Shady and sheltered.

Check in staff was wonderful. However the manger was rude, and very disrespectful. While checking in made snide comments about who we were traveling with (he felt it was too many kids) he the followed us to our site and counted the number of kids we had with us. He had told him the honest answer at first then he didn't like it so we told him a different answer. What a rude, disrespectful man. I do not recommend staying if your have very many children.

mmresort, General Manager at Mystery Mountain Resort, responded to this review, 18 May 2015
When this guest checked in, she stated and registered for 3 guests for her campsite. The manager checked her in and there was no discussion or question, as to how many people were in her party. It was a very normal and cordial check in process. While visiting with other guests in another campsite, the manager observed that there were 7 people exiting her RV and heading to the pool in their swimsuits. The manager approached her and politely asked her to come back to the office to adjust her registration with the actual number of guest at the site. The guest complied with the manager’s request and changed her reservation to the actual number of people at the site. After the guests used the pool for approximately 3 hours along with the shower and restroom facilities afterwards, she unhooked the utilities from her RV, stopped in the office and asked for a refund. She was given a full refund and departed the property. It’s unfortunate when people are dishonest, just to save a few bucks. And it’s unfortunate for a business, when they write a dishonest review because they were exposed, as being dishonest.

We spent 5 nights here in one of the cabins and we will visit again when heading this way. The staff are great and everything is incredibly clean. It is perfectly located to see all of the area attractions and comfortable to come home to each night!

With all the choices of places to camp in a tent near Mount Rushmore, I reached out to a distant relative in the area for a recommendation. Mystery Mountain was wonderful. There was a clean outdoor pool, playground for the kids, miniature golf, and lots of trees (many campsites we saw had little to no trees). We were right next to Bear Country and 15-30 minutes from any attraction we would like to attend. There is two sets of restrooms/showers/laundry so that they are not far from any site. They also made an effort to make sure that the patrons were as spread out as much as possible. We would definitely come back!

We stayed there for 4 nights in June with a travel trailer. We stayed in a site without sewer, the site was unlevel and we had a hard time leveling the camper. The sites were wooded. Tthe staff was friendly, the all you can eat pancakes for a $1 was great. The pool was very nice. The entire campsite was clean. Wifi did not work at the sited, even by the office, it had a poor signal. Overall, I would definitely.
