“Vacation in comfort”

Vacation in comfort. Stay in one of our fully equipped Cabins, enjoy tent camping under the stars, or park your RV in our extra long, 50Amp pull thru campsites, watch cable TV, and check your e-mail with free Wi-Fi. Experience some great outdoor recreation with one of our vacation packages. Visit Mt Rushmore National Park and Crazy Horse, ride your horses in Custer State Park or the National Forest, see the Buffalo, take a tour, visit area Attractions, go hiking, biking, rock climbing, or jump into Sylvan Lake. Then return to your campsite and relax around the campfire. (Bet you can't count all of the stars overhead.)

Loved staying here. Kids loved the campground as it had a nice different playground. Sites were comfortable and spacious. Bathrooms, however, were disgusting! Showers look like they have never been cleaned and my boys would not even use the toilets. Probably the worst campground bathroom that we have ever experienced. Luckily, we had full hookup and a nice shower in the rv.

Great base camp for all the Black Hills sightseeing. 1 mile out of Custer, yet feels super country. Tons of stars at night! Deer and turkeys right in the campground. Fenced in dog park which isn't something I've seen at other campgrounds. Super simple and quiet campground. Well maintained. Veteran owned and operated. Will definitely visit again.

We absolutely loved this site. The facilities were clean, well equipped and most of all warm (we camped in 23 degrees overnight so it was appreciated)
The site staff were very accommodating and happily refunded our money when it transpired we had booked extra nights accidentally. We would happily return.

We stayed at Fort Welikit for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The bathrooms were very clean, sites roomy with plenty of shade and it was very quiet. The family style bathrooms were a nice change from normal campground bathrooms. The children loved playing at the "fort" playground and begged to stay longer. It is within a quick drive to area attractions (rushmore, crazy horse, keystone, bear country etc.). The price was lower than we are used to for tent sites.
