South Dakota campgrounds?

Hiyas, my wife would like to see Mnt rushmore this spring as well as some of the caves in the black hills, any of y'all know of a good camping spot within an hour of Mnt rushmore. we would prefer electrical hookups and bike trailes close but not required we dont mind drydocking either.

online i can see alot of choices but no real "ratings" to get an idea of whats good or not, your suggestions would be greatly appreciated

RV and Tent Camping in the Black Hills & Badlands | South Dakota
Here is a site that will get you to some camping spots. When we were there in 2009 we stayed at Spearfish City campground (which is a beautiful park but quite far from Rushmore and surrounding attractions) We also stayed at Steel Wheel (south of Deadwood) fair accomodations. We drove each day to the sites we wanted to see,spent most of our time away from the camper, gone after breakfast and not back until a late meal and sleep. Lots to see and do.

Black Hills National Forest- Camping & Cabins

Sheridan Lake campground run by the National Forest Service is an awesome campground and very near summer attractions in the Black Hills. I would recommend reservations.

We stayed in a Resorts of Distinction (ROD) campgrounds Rushmore Shadows near Rapid City. www.midwestoutdooresorts.com. It was nice and close to everything.

Rafter J Bar Ranch, Hill City, SD ... http://www.rafterj.com... is a great place. Well maintained, large spaces not close to one another, other amenities. 27 mi. SW of Rapid City, SD on US Hwy 16. 12 mi further south, then back East on State Hwy 244 to Mt. Rushmore. We loved it there...good motorcycle riding; good hiking in, around and surrounding the RV park.

Our second choice was the Mount Rushmore KOA, 12620 Highway 244, Hill City, SD 57745.

Check out: RV Park Reviews :: Hill City, South Dakota ( SD ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews

Enjoy! It's a great place to go RVing.

Rafter J in Hill City is about as nice as they come if you want hookups.

Sheridan Lake is the best if you get on the lake but no hookups there.
