Stay here! We loved it here. Rock and Dianna were the best hosts. Friday night potluck BBQ was a true South Dakota experience.

This was our first RV trip and we found the perfect place in French Creek. Rock was great. He backed our new camper into the site for us, helped us with some minor mechanical problems and fixed a great Friday night BBQ. There is a very nice park right across the (very quiet) street with deer at night. Everything you could need is within walking distance, food, groceries and a great little jewelry store on the French Creek side of E. Rushmore Hwy. We stayed a week longer than we had planned. Thanks Rock, Jackie

We had camper problems and luckily, Rock had a space for us. It was the week of Sturgis and we felt very lucky to find such nice people. They even cooked dinner and helped us get our vehicle towed, etc. The sites were well-maintained and you couldn't ask for nicer folks. And, the gravel is laced with beautiful pieces of rose quartz...rockhound's paradise. :-)
