On this podcast episode of Campground of the Week, we are so excited to share Kerri Cox’s review of Rafter J Bar Ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota, just minutes away from Mount Rushmore.

Kerri explains why Rafter J Bar Ranch might just be her favorite campground ever. Yes, that’s right…EVER. The tall pine trees, scenic views, and lovely amenities won her family over during their stay in the Black Hills.

This campground has an unusual feature though–there are 6 distinct campsite areas, and it is important to know the differences so you chose the best one for your family. Kerri describes all the areas in detail, so listen before you book:

  • Main Camp
  • Base Camp
  • Line Camp
  • Ranch Camp
  • The Island
  • Lower Ranch Camp

Kerri also discusses some of the highlights of the grounds, including the hiking and biking trail that runs adjacent to the campground. Add in a lovely pool, solid bathhouses, and full hook ups and we understand why Kerri is gaga for the Rafter J Bar Ranch.
