Fort Welikit Family Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We absolutely loved this campground. The staff was amazing. The RV spots were great. Hot showers, clean restrooms, and great laundry facilities made it great for me. My kids loved the playground and all the wild animals roaming around. It was close to everything, easy to find and very quiet. We would highly recommend you staying here.

It was the best campground we have ever stayed! Beautiful, clean and hospitable. Definitely deserves 6 stars! Bathrooms were super clean. The Fort Play area was in a great area away from campsites so kids could play without waking anyone. We had issues with our RV when we arrived, which was late in the evening. Bob, the maintenance man came and helped us out with OUR trailer for several hours. Then he loaned us several heaters. Helen, the manager, came and checked on us first thing next morning. They truly care about the well being of their campers! They advised us as to the best parks and attractions to visit. And they were so right about it! And they take pride in the park and the park reflects that! We can't wait to go back! We cannot say enough wonderful things about FT WeLOVit and the staff. Please see for yourself. You will NOT regret it.

This campground has great level sites, nicely shaded, all the hook-ups one needs, good wifi. The bathrooms are the best ever, Private, once you close the door behind you, you have everything you need: toilet, sink, shower, good lights, lots of hot water ,even a chair to put your stuff on! And above all: Very clean!! The office people were friendly. We stayed 5 nights there, in the middle of Sept.

We stayed in both the TiPi and the covered wagon on site. We liked the unique experience. The campground was very clean and the sites were far enough apart for privacy. The bath area is also clean and divided to that each person has their own personal shower, sink, and toilet. The laundry room was large. It is close enough to the attractions and black hills hiking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only con was our site location was closest to Sylvan Road and a few times we woke up from the cars on the road.

Room Tip: A site away from the Slyvan lake side is best.

Ft. Welikit is a wonderful family camp ground. The bathrooms are clean, there is WiFi, laundry and it is located in a very quiet and beautiful setting. Just a little north of Custer City, Ft. Welikit is on the Sylvan lake road, close to wonderful hikes, fascinating caves and of course Mt. Rushmore. If you are looking for a good place to get away for a weekend or a week I would highly recommend it. We enjoy it so much we try to go at least a couple of times each summer.

Room Tip: All the sites are clean and easy to access, they have tent sites too.
