the best location
in the black hills


The Larsson Family of Minnesota, Colorado and Vermont have rescued this remarkable park with a new vision for the future. A vision that includes the upgrading of facilities, RV sites, Motel Rooms and the creation of premium camping sites along with a reasonably priced general store, bakery, espresso bar, deli and pub serving beer and wine.

“This hidden gem of a RV Park with Cabins, Motel Rooms and Campsites has been given new life and a new vision and we are dedicated to making your vacation stay an outstanding experience! We take quite seriously the protection of this beautiful property with the famous Crooked Creek running through it. The raw beauty of the Pine trees, grass and trout filled creek make this a unique setting for your camping experience. Nowhere in the area is this majestic scene duplicated and the peace and quiet make it the perfect venue for families, retirees, ATV/UTVer’s, Bikers traveling the adjoining Michelson Trail and Motorcyclist cruising the Black Hills”
