    We just stayed at Horse Thief Campground, and it was pretty great. Beautiful location, great drive, and close to pretty much everything.

    If you mean the sea type, Pactola reservoir would be the nearest body of water.

    There are dozens of campgrounds in the Hills. We stayed at one in Custer State Park last year (beautiful) and also the Mt Rushmore KOA. The latter was expensive, cramped, but the kids loved all the activities.

    Depends on what "near" means. If it means "within 30 miles" then the two places I mentioned would qualify.

    Not trying to be argumentative, but I said Custer State Park, not the city of Custer. Depending on where you are in Rapid City, and where you camp in Custer, that can be less than 30 miles.

    That was one we scouted out when looking a couple years ago. Enjoy your time!

    I had to look up Horse thief CG location. We may have stayed there some years ago when we cycle toured through the hills on the Michelson trail. Gee, that was long ago.

    Your spot looks like my spot, because I thought my spot was the perfect spot because it was the one spot in the campground that wasn't in one of the loops with all of the other spots, and I'm the one above who recommended the campground to you!

    As posted elsewhere, no pup for this one-month road trip that included places where a trailer would have been difficult to deal with.

    (Pics are our site at the same campground.)
