“quiet, well shaded & scenic”

You will find our resort to be clean, quiet, well shaded and scenic. Our staff continuously strives to offer a well-maintained and modern facility while not losing sight of the rustic setting which makes us unique. The Rafter J Bar Ranch is comprised of five camping areas separated by alpine meadows and shaded by large ponderosa pines. Choose a remote site, or camp close to the resorts activity center. We offer electric, water and sewer sites along with many tent sites. Some sites have satellite TV hookups. Enjoy a crackling fire and quiet hours that begin at 10:00 P.M. There's also full-time camp security.

We did a 4500 mile road trip this summer and this was our BEST stay (we did 2 nights). The grounds are beautiful & incredibly clean. The staff is excellent, friendly and genuine. Pool, playgrounds, basketball, and so much to do in the area! We loved it so much that we're thinking of coming again and staying a week.

We are in the midst of a 4 night stay and it is fantastic. Wide open spaces as they have not tried to cram an RV spot into every conceivable inch like some places. Everything works great, the facilities are clean, and they even have an all you can eat pancake breakfast for pretty cheap which is great for the mornings you don't want to cook for the kiddos.
It's a great location, you are an easy jump to Mt. Rushmore, Wind Cave Natl Park, Badlands Natl Park, Deawood, Crazy Horse, Needles Highway... all the must sees in the Black Hills are easy drives from here.

Awesome place. Large sites spread out over a vast area - not just rows of RVs. Great pool, convenient to Rushmore and the rest of the Black Hills sites.

We stayed here 2 years ago and it was a great place. Nice pool, clean bathrooms, great people staying there. We liked it enough that we are planning our next trip there this summer.

Beautiful scenery and perfect location for seeing the sights. We are on our 5,700 mile cross country move with our 43ft 5th wheel and a car hauling a utility trailer. They put us in a spot that has enough room for both the truck, camper, car and utility trailer with enough extra space for another car or two. Military friendly!!! Sites are BIG, the grounds are set up with camps. They have enough room here if they wanted to there could be another 50 sites but it would take away from the open field where the deer are grazing during the evening and throughout night. It gets dark here at night, you can see every star in the sky, beautiful!
