Lil' Bear Cabin
The facilities are well maintained and the camp is in quite a scenic spot. There are grills and firebowls available and has large shower house. Small hiking trail and a nice outside area. Tammy knows a lot about the local area and is more than happy to let you know the best food spots and hiking areas! Definitely planning a trip out here in the future!

Big Bear Cabin
Would stay here again!
We absolutely loved this cabin! As a family of 4 with 3 adults and 1 (large) teenager, we fit very comfortably. There was so much wildlife to be seen! The first morning we woke up to 16 deer right outside the front door. My son and husband had a blast playing all the different games (Frisbee golf, axe throwing, etc) and my dad loved the outside cooking space. It snowed the entire time we were there and stayed nice and toasty in the cabin. We have camped and stayed at cabins many times and one thing that stood out was the bathrooms on site. They are, hands down, the nicest and cleanest bathrooms ever! They are even heated! Everything was thought of when this site was put together. We would highly recommend staying here!!

Lil' Bear Cabin
All I can say is wow! This property is absolutely beautiful and is placed in such a lovely area. The hosts Tammy and Tim are absolutely incredible and made this truly a home away from home. They made me feel safe as I was traveling through on a solo trip, and they provided a lovely environment to meet other campers. It was a bit chilly during my stay, but thankfully the heated cabin kept me cozy and there are plenty of scenic drives and things to do yet in the area. I hope to be back (next time in warmer weather!) and for longer to explore all this area has to offer. Thank you for making my first visit to South Dakota extra magical!

Site 3 - Bear Den Glamping
Great stay, great hosts
Tammy and Tim are the best! We had the best time. Fantastic hospitality, they've thought of every detail to make your stay as good as possible... propane fire pits, heater in the tent, extra quilts/blankets, a little snack bag, spotlessly clean bathrooms with hot water showers.... it was a great stay, and we will definitely be returning here next time we're in the area. Highly recommend!!

Site 3 - Bear Den Hang and Stay
Tent glamping 馃専
Bear Den is the NICEST Hipcamp we have ever been to, with Tammy being an incredibly gracious host. There is a women鈥檚 and a men鈥檚 bathroom, both of which are massive! Several toilets, sinks, and showers. There is an ice machine, laundry facility for small items, lodging options, yard games, gas grills, propane fire pits, hammocks, chairs, etc. The site we pitched our tent on was flat, soft, and dry. Super comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend Bear Den to all!
