Description

Sylvan Lake Campground is a great place to cool off in the summer. Located just off the highway, the pines of Black Hills Forest isolate this mid-sized group of sites from the road noise.

Sylvan Lake Campground is a great place to cool off in the summer. Located just off the highway, the pines of Black Hills Forest isolate this mid-sized group of sites from the road noise. RV campers will get a chance to know their neighbors, as the sites are nestled in nice and cozy with each other, whereas tent campers will be a little more removed and remote. Either way, you’re near Sylvan Lake, so cooling off is easy. Even on land, though, the shade of the evergreens and the naturally cool mountain nights keep the heat beat!

A cool stop while going through South Dakota. Near a fun smaller town called Hill City and Mount Rushmore. We were in campsite 26 which was secluded and very nice and dog friendly. From the campground there are hiking trails that can take you to the lake which are relatively easy but convenient to stay off the road! The lake was pretty crowded but we were close to the 4th of July when we stayed there. There's a fun hike around the lake and through the rocks in my photo. There are non-motorized boat rentals for recreation.

Several sites situated on a hillside- beautiful site, level tent pads, but must haul gear up. It's worth the privacy.

There are narrow tunnels along the Needles Highway (the most scenic and popular route to Sylvan Lake). We had to take the southern route into the campground, but this campground was so worth going out of our way for!
