Campground review - Elk Creek Resort

We stayed at Elk Creek Resort in Piedmont, South Dakota through the Independence Day weekend and saw some of the area's sites.

Nearby attractions - 8 - 15 minutes to Rapid City within an hour of Mount Rushmore and Devil's Tower. Close to Deadwood City and Sturgis.

Staff - 8 - Nicest guy we talked to was an older gentleman named Scotty!

Natural surroundings - 8 - Some shaded sites, nice views of surrounding valley and Black Hills. Only a mile from I90, but you felt it was much farther away!

Value - 6 - We paid $34 a night with a Passport America card..

Bathrooms - 6 - I felt they were a little run down. Not worthy of the name resort for sure!

Roominess - 8 - Our site was big on one side for sure. Plenty of room for a July 4th cookout with friends. Not every site was this big though.

Facility fun - 9 - Pool, hot tub, small playground, horseshoes. A petrified forest attraction is also on site and is free to guests of Elk Creek Resort!

Cleanliness - 7 - Pretty decent, but some areas needed some refreshing.

Facility usefulness - 8 - Dump station, laundry, camp store, free wifi. They also received a package for us.

Overall - 7 - Pretty good place, I wish the bathrooms had been a bit nicer.
