Lil' Bear Cabin
Amazing campsite and Super Clean!!
Tammy and Tim sure know how to host. their hospitality was very welcoming. we arrived late at night and waited till we arrived to meet us and tour us around. The cabin and bathroom was well stocked and very clean. If you around the area and looking for something chill, glamorous and clean, look no further. The private gas fire pit was just major plus and in the morning watching the wild life pass through with a cup of joy by the fire was just so relaxing. My golden retriever sure had a blast running in the morning.

Perfect site and great hosts
I loved my night camping at Tammy's land. The glamping tents were perfect, the location was convenient for Black Hills activities, and Tammy was extremely helpful. I hope I can visit again.

Great site, wonderful owners
Cannot recommend this place enough. Everything was incredibly clean and well maintained, the cabin was cozy and comfortable, and the site itself was beautiful. But what really set it apart for us was how kind Tammy and her husband were. We stopped here on our move from California to Minnesota and were planning to car camp, but Tammy generously offered us a cabin at no charge since it was getting chilly outside. Thank you Tammy!! We're planning on returning sometime in the summer so we can really enjoy all this campsite has to offer!

A place to heal and dream again
This place is truly a gem, along with the most wonderful hosts, Tammy and Tim. It got pretty cold the nights I was there and Tammy made sure I was extra toasty with layers and a portable heater. Sitting outside with the firebowl while watching the stars come out is so incredible. The whole set up was comfortable and not too much, so you get the glamping experience to a tee. I'd love to bring my friends back next time. Overall my time there was so peaceful. It gave me the time and space to think. Really worth checking out.

Such a great stay! Tammy was extremely helpful and accommodating. The tent and land were great and the location was not too far from mount rushmore and black hills activities. Highly recommend!

Big Bear Cabin
Super recommended
The cabin was big enough, with a little coffe machine and a fridge, the bonfire was perfect and the place beautiful. Tammy was very careful with all the details, she gave us a little bag of snacks and show us everything on our arrival. On top of that on the morning she came with hot coffee for all of us. We will totally come back to Big Bear Cabin.

Black Hills beauty.
We are new to HipCamping. We cannot imagine hosts any better than Tammy and Tim. They helped us set up our tent, which meant we had the rain fly on before it started raining. We had to terminate our stay early, and they went above and beyond the call of duty helping us get through a difficult time striking our campsite. We would love to come back and stay longer!

Wonderful stay
This was our first Hipcamp experience. We are airbnb hosts so we know what goes into being good hosts. Tammy and Tim were fantastic hosts that gave the personal touch many places dont. If you want to interact and learn about the area from the hosts, this is the perfect place for you. We tent camped for 2 nights and then did a glamping tent for the 3rd night. We had a choice of different areas to place our tent. Be warned, the ground is rocky. Tammy has cleared out alot of rocks but our tent was oversized so we did have to deal with some rocks underfoot. We came unprepared for the rocky soil and thankfully Tim loaned us a hammer for our tent stakes. After exploring the SD Black Hills we learned that rocks are everywhere and the tent area Tammy set up is excellent considering the natural environment. The bathhouse is AMAZING! Super cute design, but more importantly, spotlessly clean. I LOVED the bathhouse. LOVED. Tammy has established a complete camping experience. There is a fire ring, hot dog sticks, grills, outdoor furniture, corn hole, yard games, potable water, and a dishwashing station. The glamping tent was awesome! Very cute and inviting. It was chilly at night (in the 40s) and while there is a propane heater in the tent, we only used it for 10 minutes to tale the chill off. The down comforter and quilt were so extremely warm... we had to push the quilt aside during the night! We loved our night in the glamping tent. We def recommend this host and location!

The site was great, not too long of a drive for black hills activities. Tammy was a great host, very friendly, and made sure we had everything we needed for chilly nights! Even had charged battery packs for phones in the tents. I recommend this site for anyone hoping to stay near the black hills.

Friends in the Bear Den
Tammy and Tim were a super friendly couple and very attentive hosts. They thought of things/amenities we didn't realize we needed/wanted until they presented them. They treated us like family and went above and beyond to meet our needs. We felt immediately at home and like we were leaving friends. The cabin was perfect, and we slept like babies. The shower room was immaculate and met all our needs. If you love relaxing in the quiet of South Dakota and meeting people rich in care and hospitality, you cannot find better elsewhere. We cannot wait to come back!

I loved Tammy &Tim’s camp. They are nice hosts. Not only the tent was great, she t was a true glamping experience. The quality of sheets, pillows, and towels were amazing. The restrooms were impeccable - hot showers, super clean, heated space, even a bench in the shower area to keep your stuff. We took a peak at the cabins and they looked awesome. The decoration of the tents and bathrooms were of good taste. Too bad we were only passing through and stayed one night. Can’t go wrong with them.

One of the best spots on our trip!
This was a two night stopover for our Custer/Badlands/Wind Cave weekend. Tammy was very communicative, greeted us when we arrived and showed us around. They had two gas grills available, immaculate restrooms with hot showers, and plenty of space for pitching our tent. There are also fancier tents available for those who prefer to sleep in a bed. The site also had adequate lighting, which was good for walking around at night. Overall an excellent stay, we really enjoyed our time here!!

Tammy and Tim are amazing hosts. They are very generous and make you feel like at home. The cabins itself are so gorgeous, comfortable and definitely worth the value. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. The property is so peaceful. It's an amazing view at night, you can sit outside with your fire pit on and look at the stars and enjoy. I recommend this place to my friends and other people who are visiting South Dakota since Custer state park, mount Rushmore are less than 30min drive and even Badlands national Park, wind cove national Park are less than an hour drive from this location. Thanks Tammy and Tim for your amazing hospitality. Love you guys😍

Loved the location! So close to Custer State Park with days of hiking, climbing, and touristing just around the corner! Tammy and Tim were great. Their camp is really cute. Every last detail is taken care of. Every morning we woke to turkeys and deer. Can't wait to go back!

Cozy trip for the newlyweds
I am so glad I stumbled upon this lovely place to stay! Tammy and her husband allowed us to check in earlier than the listed check in time because we traveled 12 hours from Illinois through the night! They warmly greeted us bright and early in the morning, and showed us to our tent which they kindly decorated with a cute Mr. and Mrs. sign! Their campsite had everything you could possibly need, and they thoughtfully accommodated portable chargers, towels, clean facilities, and a peaceful and quiet place to stay! Not to mention there were propane campfires, bags, frisbee, and lots of other activities that were available as well. This trip was just what we needed, and we cant wait to come back someday, and tell our friends about the amazing memories we made here. Thankyou both! 🤍

Big Bear Cabin
This was our second time staying at Tammy's place and we were so glad to be back. We stayed in one of the cabins, which meant having beds, a fridge, coffee, and even snacks on our arrival. As before, the bathroom and showers were immaculate. We loved that there were turkeys, chickens, deer, and other animals around the property, as well as games, a grill, and easy access to the Black Hills and Custer. Tammy and Tim went above and beyond in welcoming us and ensuring our stay was really special. Would absolutely recommend.

Luxury Camping Experience in SD
Tammy was an excellent host! Bear Den is just adorable and Tammy has thought of everything! My husband, two labradors and I spent a night here while exploring the Black Hills and Custer State Park. The glamping tent was so comfortable, the bed was huge and comfy, lots of personal touches and even a little snack gift bag for the next day's adventure! There were fire pits, grills, yard games, and an excellent bathroom and shower facility. Tammy met us when we arrived to show us around, she was helpful, friendly and really helped us feel comfortable. A wicked thunderstorm rolled through in the evening and we enjoyed watching the storm from the comfort of our secure and dry tent. We had a simply excellent night's stay here, we highly recommend it and would stay here again in a heart beat!

Best Glamping Experience!
Tammy and her husband are absolutely incredible! I had my sister laws glamping Bachelorette party at Bear Den and Tammy was so accommodating ! She was in communication with me leading up to our stay and made sure everything was perfect. She even helped unload my car with all the decorations! The tents are absolutely beautiful and spacious! We had such a wonderful time . We made so many memories and it wouldn’t have been possible without Tammy and her husband. They have put so much love into this place and it shows. They have such a heart for hospitality! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

The Bear Den was a very welcoming environment. The host, Tammy, was extremely hospitable and made me feel right at home after traveling for a few days! The bathrooms and showers were some of the nicest I’ve seen at a camp site, as well as the other amenities. I hope to stay at this site again!

One of the best
Tammy made us feel right at home. My son and I got in late from Chicago and Tammy left us a lantern. The central amenities are brand new and top notch. The wall tents are clean and comfortable. There's lots to do on the property especially for children. Tammy left us a gift basket and showed us all the local spots to check out in the area. We made it to Badlands, Custer State Park and Rushmore. I can't say enough good things about how warm of a host Tammy is. We will go out of our way to come back and visit her and Bear Den again. It's a beautiful place and made us feel right at home.

We had an absolute great time staying at Tammy’s property. She warmly greeted us as soon as we arrived with a handshake and gave us a whole tour while sharing her vision of what it will soon be. She made us feel right at home. There are tons of accessories, including a grill, so be sure to stop off for some authentic South Dakota beef before making your way there. Would highly recommend to anyone passing through or staying around for a while to explore what the beautiful state has to offer.
