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 recreational vehicle 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 recreational vehicle 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.

Fun in the Black Hills!

  • 5 of 5

This is a 5 star super fun camping property! It is clean and private. The beds were so comfortable, and the grill was perfect for our 4th of July BBQ. It is close to so many interesting things to check out in South Dakota. My son loved the hot tub best. Wade is a great host. He went above and beyond in

helping us with a tire issue on our car. He also called us right away when my 9 year old son forgot his wallet in the tent. We definitely want to come back and give it our highest recommendation!

Unique and Special Experience - Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with the Sibley Bell Tent 2 as soon as I saw it online, but it was even more amazing to see it in-person, and call it home for 2 nights. Wade & Patricia were welcoming and friendly, and have very obviously put a ton of work and care into the rentals on their property. We also enjoyed our time in the sweet little town of Hot Springs, and spent two afternoons in Custer State Park (about an hour away) while we stayed here. An amazing experience all-around. Our second night we sat in the hot tub as it got dark and watched the far-off lightning of a storm that was supposed to head our way overnight (but didn't!). Absolutely fantastic.

The only caveat I will mention from a logistical perspective is that we had no cell service up on the cliffs (AT&T) and found the provided wifi to be pretty slow and spotty. We didn't need it (the TV works great if you are looking for some mindless entertainment), but for mapping out drives, looking up travel info, etc. it did make things a little tricky. Once we got down into town though, cell service worked great again.

Thanks again for a great visit; we hope to come back someday!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sibley 2! The view was beautiful and Wade and Patricia were very accommodating. Even though it rained 2 of the 3 nights we were there, we still enjoyed every minute we spent at the site. We will definitely be back!

We love this place! This is our second time staying in the Sibley 2 tent and it won’t be our last.

We love the Sibley 2 tent! It’s a super romantic experience (we will leave it at that). Wade and Patricia are absolutely wonderful people and take pride in providing a wonderfully unique place to stay. Everything is neat and clean, and is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. We are definitely coming back!

I'm SO HAPPY I found this place! Holy cow we had such a wonderful time staying at Sibley Bell Tent 2! A very unique experience- our kids 18 & 22) couldn't believe how "cool" it was (and neither could my husband)! The pictures are accurate, but the accommodations and scenery were better in person. Stunningly beautiful! Linens, utensils, plates, cups, coffee maker, hammock, full size grill, gas "fire pit", hot tub, great bathroom w/ tp and soap and outdoor shower.!! A cot was also provided by our kind hosts upon request. I can't imagine a better "glamping" (glamour camping) experience. Thanks to Wade and Patricia, our wonderful, super-thoughtful hosts! My husband is an avid disc golfer and Wade had two baskets that he set up in their yard for our enjoyment. We made some great memories and are excited to visit again. Make this reservation- you'll be so happy you did. :e)
