Custer state park campgrounds
The first comment about Custer State Park Campgrounds is from Mommy1Indiana wrote a review in Jul 2022. She said: “We stayed at 14E, which had only electricity but was spacious and had a beautiful yard and view behind us. We lived in a cul de sac near the water pump, laundry, and dump. The bath house was also nearby, and it was adequate – not particularly clean, and the shower is low, forcing tall people to crouch.”
“We could not really eat outside because of the biting flies. The campground has a fishing pond and a creek, as well as tent sites near the creek. The campground is conveniently located across the road from the visitors center, down the road from the retail area, and near the beginning of Wildlife Loop.” – She wrote.
“We stayed in a pop-up for 8 nights while visiting the Black Hills. Our site, 15E, was easy to back into, level, and close to the showers. It was peaceful, clean, open, and roomy. We would suggest this campground to anyone looking for a place to camp. The gas station sold food, snacks, firewood, ice, and souvenirs. This campground is the closest to the loop and is conveniently located to everything that the area has to offer (where you will see buffalo)”. – Lisa D wrote a review Oct 2018
Stockade Lake North Campground
Another review from one of the Custer State Park Campgrounds: Stockade Lake North Campground. “We chose this campground since it was the only one in the park that had the same site available for the duration of our stay. It went extremely well. The campground is lovely, with lots of trees and spacious campsites. Some websites are difficult to access.”
“The tree on the side of the road by our location has been hit several times; fortunately, we have been endorsing our 5th wheel for a long time. The bathhouse is very nice, but it is not cleaned frequently; the same trash has been in the shower drain for three days. However, it is the most beautiful bathhouse I have seen in the 22 states where we have camped.” DogsandDragons wrote a review Aug 2021
Blue Bell Campground
RichandStell H wrote a review Sep 2018 – “I’m glad I stayed at Blue Bell Campground whilst also visiting Custer State Park. The cabin was spotless and comfortably slept 4-5 people on the two bunk beds. The AC/Heat wall unit performed admirably. A fire pit with a cooking grate, a picnic table, and a deck on the cabin with benches are all useful. The cabins are far enough apart that there is no sound from the neighbors.”
“A nearby store across the main room from the Lodge sells firewood, ice, and other necessities. I liked the location because it is close to the southeastern entrance to the Wildlife Loop Road while remaining quite secluded.
The cabin is peaceful, clean, and rustic. Perfect for a family camping trip that was less stressful and more relaxed than a tent. The cabin had electricity as well as a small air conditioner, which was unexpected but appreciated. For a break from log fire food or a morning horse riding ride at their stables, this area near the Blue Bell Lodge is ideal. Don’t forget the linens—it seems obvious, but it happens. We needed to go into Custer for a few things, and there aren’t a lot of options.” – He wrote.
” We stayed in camping cabin number 21 at Bluebell campground for five nights. I would strongly recommend them because they are flawless in every way. Our cabin had a double bed with a bunk above it and a single bed there was ample space inside including a table and chair and handy storage shelve. The restrooms/showers were always spotless. The campground hosts were helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and wish to return in the future; we did not want to leave because we had so much fun.” – Ruby K wrote a review Sep 2018
State Game Lodge Campground
“At Game Lodge Campground, we stayed in one of the small cabins. For a small family, one stacked bunk bed, as well as one double bed with pads, are provided. Very neat. You’ll need to bring pillows, towels, linens, or sleeping bags, among other things. Lights are powered by a small alternating current (AC). There is a small table within and a picnic table on the porch, but no cooking facilities. Each cabin has a real fire ring pit, but no grill. The campsite appeared safe and quiet, and we slept well with the windows/screen door open, allowing for cool fresh air.”
“Because the campsite is flanked by the main road, you will most likely hear traffic, but most of it will be early in the morning as workers arrive to set up for lodge breakfast near the area. On our visit, the showers in the split public bathrooms were really clean. There is a small theater where a ranger talk was being held the night we were there, but we did not attend. The historical lodge is only a short distance away from the campground.” – A users called Steve wrote a review Sep 2018
harleyTMH wrote a review Aug 2019: “This past week, we camped at State Game Lodge Campground, which was fantastic. It’s peaceful at night, and it’s thrilling to wake up to see deer. The night sky is incredible, and I was able to see numerous stars because you’re not in the city. We’re camping in a tent, but there are wonderful bathrooms as well as hot showers nearby. David and Colette, the campground hosts, were extremely friendly and helpful. There are no bad places to camp or RV, as well as roughly equal numbers of tents and RVs. We saw a large herd of buffalo, pronghorn antelope, rams, deer, burros, beautiful birds, as well as prairie dogs in the park.”
“We enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning at the State Game Lodge ( one of the Custer State Park Campgrounds), just down from the campground, and suppers at the State Game Lodge, and the Legion Lake Lodge, and lunch in Blue Bell Lodge, all within this wonderful park. This was the 4th year we visited the park, but the first time we camped here, and it was nice to be able to be in the park and drive the wildlife loop early in the morning when you can see more animals. I will definitely stay here again. This park lets you book your reservations to any of its campgrounds a year in advance.” _ She left the review.
