This drive-in campground has a total of 62 sites; five of those sites are group sites. All the sites except the group sites have electric hookups with 30-amp and 50-amp service. Three of the sites are handicap accessible. Most of the sites are near the Belle Fourche Reservoir. There are also two one-bedroom cabins available for rent.

Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. All the non-group sites in the campground are back-in sites. The pads are gravel and can accommodate RVs up to 65 feet in length. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the campground.
