About Scott Neslon

Sherry and I grew up in Western South Dakota. We have enjoyed sharing the rich heritage of the Black Hills with friends and family our entire lives. Helping families create lasting vacation memories is now our goal.

Scott Neslon purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Scott Neslon chose Rapid City

Since we have lived on the property for the last 26 years, we can say that it is the ideal location to experience the wide variety that the Black Hills area has to offer. All the conveniences of the City with a country feel. Plenty of other units if you are traveling with friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of grass, huge trees, shade, and the abundance of birds and wildlife make this property feel like the great outdoors.

great stay in a great country in the city location

  • 5 of 5

In July 2007 we stayed with our family at this location. We found it to be very convenient to everything in the Rapid CIty area. There are many things to do for young and old alike. Our accomadations were clean and well maintained and ample size for a family of 6. A barbecue grill and picnic table are at each site which made it nice to eat outside and enjoy each others company in the evening. The staff was very helpful and friendly and were always available if you needed them.

There is plenty of room to wander with a river and lake within walking distance for fishing or boating. We would go back without hesitation and I recommend it to anyone visiting the greater Rapid City, S.D. area.

Our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been here almost 1 week and it's been the best vacation we could've ever imagined. It all started with our amazing cabin and the hospitality. Everyone is so amazing here and our cabin is so clean. It turned out to more than we hoped for. Thank you Monty and staff for welcoming our family to Rapid city.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Lake Park Campground and Cottages. This was our first time vacationing in SD and we could not have selected a better place to stay. Our cottage was just the right size for our family of 4, however we spent the majority of our time outside. The beds were comfortable and the area was quite. We enjoyed the BBQ grill and the kitchen. Also enjoyed the area for the kids to play and run around and the community feel. The staff were very friendly, although we did not need them during our stay. The cabin and surrounding area was very clean and the grounds wereally well maintained. We were very sad to leave. We would recommend Lake Park Campgrounds and Cabins to everyone vacationIngram to South Dakota.

Glad we choose this family friendly resort! The staff starts this great experience off right by showing you shortcuts out of town and treating you like family! The cottage we stayed In was a 2 bedroom with fold out sleeper in living room. Plenty of room for our 3 adults and 3 children (ages 8,2,& 10 months). Our pack n play fit perfect next to the bed in our room! The kitchen has all the basics including full size fridge, oven, and microwave. The location is amazing on the western edge of town and surprisingly quiet. We highly recommend and will be back!

Great place to Stay with the Family

  • 5 of 5

We love coming to Lake Park Campground! We always rent a cottage and love having a full kitchen with all the dishes provided. The staff is very friendly and responsive. The only complaint is the wi-fi is little slow. BUT you're supposed to unplug when you're on vacation right? :)
