Echo Valley Park Campground Custer
Where are we going today?
If you're heading for a family day out in the Black Hills, you might want to extend it for a few days when you hear how many things there are to see and do out there! If you do, Echo Valley Park Campground is in the prime location for it!
The Black Hills in South Dakota are filled with history and fun, and Echo Valley just happens to be 3.5 miles north of Custer, and RIGHT next to Crazy Horse Mountain, so they're not a bad place to start!
Have a guess what is 20 miles away? Only Mount Rushmore! Custer State Park is only 7 miles away too, so this family friendly campground is set right in the middle of it all, and ready to give you a place to create some holiday memories in!
The campground itself is equipped for families wanting to escape in their RV, as well as those families wanting to take it back to the old classic way of camping and just bringing a tent to pitch. The tent sites are shaded so you get the best of both worlds!
There are several large pull through RV sites too if you have those bigger rigs.
In addition to all those incredible and iconic American sites that surround you at Echo Valley Park, there is also an incredible wilderness to explore! Hikers can explore the Buck Horn Wilderness Area, and the Thunder Head Mountain region - it's a place not many people explore so you will be seeing some incredible things!
It really is a nature lovers paradise, with a beautiful lake great for fishing, and wildlife to spot.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of South Dakota, and true wilderness with Echo Valley Park Campground - don't forget to say hi to General Custer!

Traveling cross country we've stayed at a looot of campgrounds.. this one has been one of the best for a few reasons: the service is AWESOME. The owner came out to where we were setting up tents, after 11pm when the park was closed, to greet us and tell us where the bathrooms were and things to do in the area. It was so nice! Another plus about echo is the price! Cheap considering all that they have to offer. Also, the laundry and snacks and stuff are free, requesting donation :) and the soda 'pop' is sold by the honor system, if you take something,...Read More

One of my favorite campsites during this 6 weeks road trip that I've been taking from San Francisco to Mt Rushmore. The owners are super friendly and helpful, the site is very quite and just 5 minutes from the Crazy Horse Monument. There is even a small creek on the property for fishing. Laundry is donation based! The showers are a bit old but still very clean. I will certainly stop here in the future when I'm back.

It is also a woodsy, grassy, nice and private area to camp - not next to a bunch of RVs on a gravel lot. I will def be back if I ever pass thru
