Vacations should be relaxing and uncomplicated. Out here, at Hart Ranch Camping Resort, we think life should be that way all the time. Being nestled out in the beautiful Black Hills, Hart Ranch blends a relaxed Western lifestyle with family fun to create an experience of a lifetime, every time you visit Hart Ranch. Whether you are camping or lodging there are always activities to do camping at Hart Ranch. Black Hills camping has never been more fun with these simple luxuries at Hart Ranch:

Olympic-size Outdoor Pool
Taking a dip in our Olympic-size outdoor pool is always a favorite among activities to do camping at Hart Ranch. Whether it is taking a dive and splashing around with family, swimming a few laps for exercise, or join a water aerobics class – stay cool no matter the temperature when camping in the Black Hills at Hart Ranch Camping Resort!
Hot Tubs
Get toasty in the hot bubbles of one of our three hot tubs at Hart Ranch! Soaking after a day of fun is a great way to cap off any starry night when doing your Black Hills camping.
Children’s Pool
Let the kids go wild and swim around in Hart Ranch’s children’s pool. The children’s pool is the perfect size for any small beginner swimmers and among one of the top activities to do camping for little ones.
9 Hole, Par 3 Pasture Golf Course
Bring your irons and chip away! Never a dull moment on this course! And don’t worry about the “jeers” from the galley–it’s just part of the challenge!

Bring the teens and battle it out on Hart Ranch’s newest addition! Paintball is available on an on-demand basis. All supplies provided for a fee.  Call the Activities Office for rates and to schedule at 605-737-5368.
BMX/Remote Control Racetrack

Test your timing on this new addition to the resort.  Built for either bikes or remote control vehicles, definitely a fun time!
Tennis, Volleyball, and Basketball Courts
How about a fun pickup game of basketball or take a chance and serve up an Andy Roddick-worthy win on the tennis courts? You could even take a dive in the sand-filled volleyball courts as you save the day for your team! Nothing like a little friendly competition to turn into family fun on the tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts at Hart Ranch!
Pickleball Courts
Have a try at the latest fun game, with an even more fun name- pickleball! At Hart Ranch we have four pickleball courts, so the fun can start from beginner pickleball players to even those with the most advanced skill! This exciting game will have the whole family having fun for hours!
Children’s Playground
Let the kids loose on the fun children’s playgrounds at Hart Ranch! Whether they are looking for a slide to zip down, stairs to climb, or swings to reach the sky- our children’s playgrounds are the perfect kid-friendly spot for Black Hills camping.
Bicycle Rentals

Dog Run

Who let the dogs out?  Now you can!  Large fenced dog run to let your pet off the leash and get some exercise!
Walking Path
Looking for some exercise?  Take you and your furry friend on this scenic trip around the resort.  At almost 3 miles, definitely good for the cardio!
Xbox Kinect
Can’t forget the teens!! Enjoy some friendly competition on the Resort’s Xbox Kinect! Maybe some dance-offs or a little soccer action? This will get you on your feet and moving–no war games here!  This is available upon request from the Activities Office.
Soccer Field
The World Cup has nothing on us!  Keep the legs pumping and get a little more exercise.  Soccer balls available but you may want to bring your own shin guards!
Sand Volleyball
We’ll even bring the beach to you to experience a little sand between your toes and a competitive (or fun) game of volleyball.
Mini Golf
Show off your golfing abilities, or should we say mini golf abilities, in our mini golf course! The course features some adorable animal friends along the way and some pretty tricky holes which even golf pros may feel challenged with! This is a great way to get the whole family out during your Black Hills camping trip.
Shuffleboard Lanes
Test your skills on our shuffleboard lanes, one of the many great activities to do while camping at Hart Ranch. This family-orientated game is not only easy but fun for every age of participant!
Another family favorite activity to do while camping is the game of horseshoes! With several different horseshoe areas, many people can get multiple games going at the same time. With all the fun, we think a horseshoe tournament would be the perfect way to showcase all the fun of this popular game!
Pool Tables
Sink a shot into one of our pool tables and relax a while with friends and family indoors at Hart Ranch. Not only does this game take skill, but can create a little friendly competition among family members during your Black Hills camping experience.
Community Garden

Participate in this spectacular community event!  From planting to harvest, volunteers make this an incredible, edible experience!
