About Wade and Patricia Evans
We are a product of on online dating. Patricia moved from MN to the Northern Hills in 1979. Wade was born in Spearfish, but was living in Colorado, counting days until the next time he could get back the 'The Hills'.
Wade and Patricia Evans purchased this Campground in 2010
Why Wade and Patricia Evans chose Hot Springs
When we found the property online, we fell in love with the house... and Wade the shop. But after we came to see it in person and walked to the cliff... well, it was just amazing. You have to see it in person to understand. Everyday, we tell our 3 dogs and 3 cats, 'we are going to the cliff' and we all take a hike together, stopping just to sit and look. Seems like every hike, we see something new, we never noticed before. So nice here, we had our wedding at the cliff edge in 2012. We have a hard time figuring out where to 'go' for a vacation... we feel we are living in our perfect vacation spot and now we have discovered that we really enjoy sharing our favorite spot and the chance to meet new friends in the process.
What makes this Campground unique
We want every guest to feel right at home and provide everything you could ever need. We treat our guests as family... that traveled from across the country and have what they need to relax and prepare for the best vacation possible. We know most families only get 1 or 2 vacations a year, we are very honored to be a part of that experience.

A trip to remember!
We stayed in Sibley Tent 2. It was such a fun experience! Glamping at its finest! Clean, comfy beds all made up for us...I felt like we were staying with family friends. By day... hammock, cool breezes, beautiful nature all around and by night...warm fire, smores for the kids and drinks for the adults! Pure Bliss. Tons of amenities and hosts who were more than willing to lend something if we forgot it. It was a perfect mini vacation for my husband and I and our two kids (4 & 9) There was frisbee golf, plenty of room for the kids to run and a hot tub where they spent most of their time! We packed a picnic and spent one of our days at the little park just down the road from the property. Beautiful little brook runs through a perfectly landscaped park. Our boys had a great time trying to catch minnows and splashing in the shallow crystal clear water. Mount Rushmore was only an hour drive away, our boys were amazed!
We explored the Badlands on our way to the tent, obviously that was incredible and bonus, we saw a bunch of buffalo! The kids loved it, we loved it, it was so exciting seeing those incredible animals right up close. Our trip was a perfect mix of checking out the sites but keeping it relaxed and easy. Thank you so much to Wade and Patricia for sharing their home and land with strangers from Minnesota...truly a trip to remember.
Sibley Bell Tent 2 June 2019
We were thrilled with the tent & the location. This site has a beautiful view of the canyon. The tent and site were in excellent condition. We loved that you could access the bathroom from the tent. Loved the outdoor shower. The kitchen area was well set-up, offered cover and took advantage of the view. Enjoyed the hot tub & propane fire pit. The tent was HUGE!! Lots of room for all of us. During a rainstorm we were able to play games in it!! The beds & linens were very nice.
Evans Cliff is a well run property, with friendly owners. Staying here with grandchildren was a real treat. The kids loved it!! All the fun of camping without hauling all the gear & setting up a camp. Beyond vacation with family, this place would be wonderful for time with friends or spouse. Close to all the Black Hills attractions, but a quiet, beautiful retreat when you are done for the day! We plan to return. Thank you Patricia & Wade!! Well done!!
This was our second year at the Sibley Bell Tent 2 and it just keeps getting better! Wade and Patricia have truly thought of everything you may need for your stay. They just keep adding little touches to this site to make you really feel like it is a special weekend for you. It is so quite and beautiful here and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We love to take glamping to the next level when we are here and really like make amazing meals on their great grill! It really comes in handy having the side burner. We make shrimp and andouille kabobs and grilled peaches, egg bakes, trench toast with peanut butter and bacon, and even smores nachos! Also this is our time to finally sit down and read and play board games. My fiance even taught me chess this time and I beat him on the second game! We really have a blast doing nothing in this perfect location and will be back again next year for our 3rd anniversary!
We just stayed for our second time and couldn’t be happier. Nothing is overlooked. So accommodating and friendly. Lots to do in the area. Kids loved the hot tub. Beautiful view. Would definitely recommend!
Summer Black Hills Couples Trip
Wade and Patricia went above and beyond to provide an excellent camping adventure in the beautiful Black Hills. We enjoyed our 2 night stay! The weather was perfect, nights were calm and peaceful, we slept great and the hot tub was absolutely what we needed after a long day of traveling or sight seeing. Thank you so much, we will be back!!
Defiantly coming back!
Everything was great! The best night sleep we had in a long time. This was a great getaway, and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Big thanks to Patricia and Wade for greeting us so late, after our long drive! We loved every minute.
