I took my 2 year old and we all had a fun time. The trails in the back were really neat we will come back!

Want to learn about the outdoors? Come to Outdoor Campus West! So far they've shown me: Ice fishing, turkey calling, small arms firing, predator hunting, and archery! The staff are all extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about teaching respect for the outdoors. Shout out to Laurie and Keith!

This is a beautiful place to escape without leaving town. There's a ton of beautiful mature trees that surround you away from hustle and bustle of Rapid City. Perfect for photography or picnics.

Lots of programs for all ages. Excellent taxidermy. Super helpful staff. Great place to go learn what it was like b4 the phone screen epidemic. Basic human survival. Something that is missing in today's world.
