A new USFS national reservation system began operation on October 15, 1999 for all forest service and Corp of Engineers recreation sites. Campers will have the option of a one-stop booking service through a toll-free phone number, 1-877-444-6777. Internet service at http://reserveusa.com. Black Hills bound horse campers reserving sites at either Willow Creek HC or Iron Creek HC can expect to pay the campsite fee plus a service charge per reservation regardless if made by phone, Internet or in person.

The new reservation vendor is Park Net, Inc. of Ballston Spa, NY. Bookings can be made up to 240 days in advance for individual campsites and 360 days in advance for group sites.

Forest Recreation Management is the  contracted concessionaire for all of the BHNF campground, picnic  areas, lake marina's etc. with the Iron Creek and Willow Creek info.
Ty Garcia is the manager, Hill City is 111 Elm St,  Hill City, SD 57745 and phone is 605.574.4402.  If campers are having  a problem with their reservations, or if problems arise while they  are at WC or IC, or just for good information that the national  reservation system doesn't have, that office is the best resource to  contact.
