As you can see, we are just off of Hwy 16A, tucked into a beautiful valley surrounded by amazing views. We have a variety of accommodations to offer you.

Fay Barber

We liked this campground for its convenience for the Park, and it was small, therefore quiet overnight. Kevin was always helpful by phone with any questions. We are a 34’ Airstream and it was definitely awkward turning into our spot with this sized rig. All in all, we would use this again in the area

Michael Hansford

Excellent place to stay! It’s low key and quiet. Location was great with easy access to many of the sights and very close to Custer which has a grocery store and shops! The owner Kevin was super nice and offered free fire wood! WIFI included! Would stay again and highly recommend!

George Wheeler

We visited Custer 7 years ago saw this campground & it looked fair so this year when we visited Custer we made reservations at West Wheel thinking it would be better than 7 years ago because it states new renovations to the campground. Very easy reservation made them for 5 days talked to Kevin on the phone very helpful and accommodating when someone was on our site before arrival and moved us to another site . We arrived and boy we were amazed nothing really had changed from 7 years ago except a pavilion, The sites are to close together shared fire pit, weeds needed trimmed the whole grounds needed trimmed and up keep. We called & talked to Kevin and told him that we changed our mind and only staying one night and moving on he said ok no problem & will refund the rest of the money. Never had in person talk with him always on phone never saw anyone on the grounds or a office .

Spent 2 weeks there. Perfect location. Kevin took care of everything we needed.

Camila Shahan

Great campsite! We enjoyed 3 nights here in our travel trailer! The owner was really nice, everything was cleaned and maintained and the views were beautiful. There is also a really nice running trail across the street if you like running!

Tanner Miller

Absolutely loved this campground. The history of getting to camp where Custer camped makes it all the more fascinating. Plenty to do, as the location is convenient for many tourist attractions. The site had full hook ups and all were in great shape. The owner was attentive to all the campers' needs and took time to talk about the nearby opportunities. My wife and I plan to return soon.

Bo Uncer

Such a great vacation, and staying here was the best. Can't wait to come back when the diner is open. The new owner aims to please. We'll be back, for sure!

Campground Response

Hi Bo, thanks for staying, and thanks for the great review. We are excited to have you back sometime.

Lenore Allen

Okay. Bathroom clean. Close to town. No laundry. Sites Too close to another. Too much money for what you get but Wi-Fi good.

The new owners Kevin n Maggie were awesome, very friendly. Made our honeymoon/ 4th of July very pleasurable. We will be back next year..

Campground Response

Thanks for staying Wendy. We loved having you guys and look forward to hosting you again sometime.

Scott May

Kevin the owner is a great host —very personable and accommodating. I would stay again just because of him. Bonus is the park has a great view, easy access and is quiet. The park needs a little work yet but Kevin has a vision and the energy to get it into tip top shape quickly.

Campground Response

Hi Scott, thanks so much for the review and for staying with us. We look forward to making more changes as providing an even better experience for all of our guests.

Paul Markovsky

Great place, very green and surprisingly quiet despite proximity to the highway. The view of Calamity Peak is a good bonus. It's within an hour to all the tourist sites in the Black Hills and less than 20 minutes from all the great hikes in Custer State park. The new owner is very friendly and accommodating. He's done a lot of work on the property to improve the campground. There were plenty of empty sites due to the coronavirus scare so we ended up extending our 6-night stay by one night and would definitely return if we were coming back to the area.

Campground Response

Thanks for staying with us Paul, and we are so glad you enjoyed it. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future if you're back in the area.

We had such a wonderful time at Wheels West. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. This campground is right off blacktop and very close to Custer State Park. Mickelson Trail for walking and biking is directly across the road. We will definitely come back!
