Lora and Dan were the best HipCamp hosts we’ve had thus far! The facilities were perfectly clean and comfortable, and our favorite part of our stay was talking to our hosts in the Taproom and exchanging stories and insights. We loved that their stay had this lovely communal space as well as the communal fire pit because they really brought the different travelers together and made for memorable encounters with good people. Definitely looking forward to going back!

I would definitely come back to this resort. We stayed using a large RV. Was easy to pull in and access to sewage, water and electric was right next to each parking pad. Grill available. Nightly community fire. Grounds are very well kept. Bathroom and shower were very clean. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay here again if in South Dakota traveling

This was our first time to take the 5th on a trip. Black Elk Resort was very clean & inviting! It was in just the right location to be near Keystone, Mt Rushmore, Chief Crazy Horse, Hill City & Deadwood. Dan & Lora were so hospitable; ready to answer questions when needed. The taproom with locally crafted beer & wine was just icing on the cake! Thanks for a GREAT experience!
