"My stay at Hay Creek Ranch was one of the most enjoyable vacations I have EVER had!
Many campgrounds don’t like Bikers, but from the very first moment I rode through the gate Doug had his hand out to shake mine and welcome me in. My cabin was very affordable, warm, spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything I needed to make my stay as trouble free and easy going as possible. Hay Creek was EXACTLY the kind of quiet, laid back and relaxed atmosphere I was looking for during the Black Hills Rally. The camp store was well stocked so I didn’t need to bring food with me, and the prices were very reasonable. I plan on going back next year and for many years to come."
