We very much enjoyed sleeping in comfort in a large and clean tent set in the rocky hills of South Dakota. The camp is very close to Mt. Rushmore and to local eateries and shops. The bed, blankets and pillows were excellent. We were quite warm and cozy even on very cool and rainy summer nights. The campsite itself was a bit small with a small sheltered area attached to the main tent, but no picnic table. (Shared picnic tables with Weber grills were a short walk away.) On the other hand, the community space that included the under canvas reception area, dining tables and a large lounge was interesting, attractive and it had a number of different board games for the kids to enjoy. Smores by the fire pits was also fun and the dinners at the Under Canvas restaurant were excellent. Breakfast at the restaurant, on the other hand, was underwhelming. The community bathrooms actually consisted of a row of private bathrooms with showers. These units were clean and had running hot and cold water and electricity. I wish all campsites had bathrooms like this. As nice as Under Canvas was, sleeping in a tent after a few rainy days left us looking forward to being back in a humidity and temperature controlled environment with direct access to a bathroom.

Services were professional, but friendly and caring. Atmosphere was unique and shared experience was an unexpected surprise. Beautiful nature surrounding was part of the experience and it felt better than camping on your own.
