Great Scenery!
Great Scenery! Loved the surrounding trees and privacy we had because we were the only ones here. Right off the road/ easy to get to / pull thru! Only Neg is the slight road noise because it is so close to the road- but hosts cannot do anything about that. They were VERY Welcoming!! We felt very safe and at home! Thank you!!!

Love this spot!
We really enjoyed our stay at Black Elk Resort! We stayed two nights in the off season before most places were open, and Justin & Ashley were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The resort is central and convenient for the rest of the Black Hills.

Great campsite and even better people that own it. The grounds were well maintained, restrooms were, and they even have a taproom! Our hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. 10/10.

At home in the Black Hills
A pristine property in an enviable location, ready to explore all the Black Hills has to offer. We absolutely loved our stay. Impeccable hosting from both Dan and Lora who were happy to leave us in peace at our pitch or be ready to share stories and given us excellent local advice over a beer in their taproom. Would absolutely recommend.
