The vibe at Grizzly Bear Campground
Drop some Grizzly Bear Campground knowledge on us.
We showed up on a Thursday night, it was rainy and during a storm so the whole campsite was empty! It was beautiful and near a creek. Great bathrooms, and a super friendly host that had tons of wood.
Great location and right around the corner from Mt. Rushmore! I enjoyed the tents only aspect of the area, it made it seem the sites where secluded. We reserved two nights at #17 and then we reserved a walk-in site #20 for the next two. The bathrooms were kept clean (vault) and the hosts were very nice and answered any questions we had about the area. There is a creek and some trails that were right off the campground. Try to stay in #19, seems to be the most secluded. My only negative was from the 2 families staying three sites down, they let their kids run around camp unattended until about 10:30pm and bright and early the next morning. They also trashed the bathroom unfortunately. I wish everyone had/was taught some camping etiquette.
