  • This review is comprehensive of the museum, campground, and facilities as I have visited the museum and used the campground. First off the museum is a must see and worth the visit. the building is clean and staff was friendly, really enjoyed the flow and use of time at the museum meaning it did not take too much time that things went stale for me. Second the campground. This campground is conveniently located right at the beginning of downtown as I call it. It has convenient access to transportation to tour the downtown area and casinos. Rides on the Trolley cars are $1 but if your content walking which I usually do it is an easy walk but will take a few minutes to get to the main downtown area. I would recommend crossing at the crosswalk down by the visitors center where it is a controlled traffic stop. The campground has ample spots some pull through some back in, and I saw a few trucks and campers on the street near the campground boon-docking and I believe did not pay to park there overnight and were not asked to leave. The site I had was 20/30 amp and water, it was pretty level and deep enough for my pickup and 30' travel trailer. If i nudged in my pickup next to the hitch not in front. As you leave the campground there is a dump station on the left side of the road that worked flawlessly and was clean. It also had a sign with a reminder to spray down the station when finished, so that is nice. The staff was very friendly and acted happy to see me when I walked in. She had everything down pat and check-in was less than five minutes and I was on my way. The price for me for the campground was $38 which I feel is probably normal for near downtown in a tourist driven area, but feels a bit high for what you get. Would have been more comfortable with $20-25 but I wanted to plug in and go to the deadwood lodge.
  • Very nice addition to our vacation. A lot of history to celebrate.
  • Nice! We got there late and had to rush thru, but it was still fun!
  • A true joy to visit and see the awesome history of the black hills and south dakota. DON'T MISS!
  • Great display of the history of Deadwood. Nice campground by museum.
