ok, not great! Swimming pool not in a convenient location. It was far from most of the campground. Bath rooms were clean, but a little dated. For the $ spend KOA should be 5 star, but unfortunately most of them are not.

This was a very nice place to stay. The cabin was so clean we could smell the cleaner when we came in. The beds were nice and comfortable and the bathrooms were within fairly easy reach of the cabin. I would definitely stay again.

My wife has a skin condition that does not allow a lot of exposure to the sun. We were assigned a site that did not have any shade trees. When I explained my issue with the site, the management was very happy to give us a beautiful site with lots of trees and my wife was a very happy camper. Keep up the great work. Al Walls

Convenient location. Easy in and out. Friendly staff. Very limited walking area. Treed roadway from main road needs to be sprayed for bugs; it is uninhabitable. Need an enclosed K9 park vs the un-kept Dog Walk.

Of all the KOA's I've stayed at this rates right up there in the top 10. Great campground, nice sites, awesome staff.

It rained the night we stayed and the ground became soft and our tent collapse and we left early. The staff was nice and helpful at check in. A little noisy because it is close to the highway. They seem to have a lot of activities to do.

This park had dirt roads and when wet turned to mud. I would think that is not up to KOA Standards!

We often need a clean place with a pull-through to overnight on our way through to/from Sioux Falls, and this place works great for that. The staff is friendly and responsive, and accommodates late check-ins quite well.

Nothing for the kids to do outside of the pool.(Chilly when we arrived)Bathroom stalls did not lock and showers need updating and cleaning. When it rains the whole camp turns to giant mud puddle. There is no scenery and WIFI does not work. After staying 2 KOA in SD that week this was very disappointing. We left first thing in the morning.

Very clean campground! Staff was very friendly & helped with any question we had!

There was only one staff member that was friendly. The campground itself was ok. It did rain and the roads and sites were terribly messy. They could use some more gravel. The pool water was dirty. The basketball hoop is a portable one that is set up by a gravel road that is busy traffic area. Not impressed for the high price to stay here. Will not go back. Wish I would have gone somewhere else.

Small campground just off I-90 and not far from I-35. Cute with lots of trees and shade in a rural setting. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Nice place to spend a day or two while on the road.

We have stayed at this location for the past six years. The management has failed to make improvements outside of adding a couple cabins. There are limited sites suitable for big rigs and they have not maintained the interior roads or site pads. This location desperately needs to be upgraded to meet KOA standards.

After a very long day and a very long trip we made a reservation here and Ann, the owner, was so sweet. She took one look at my husband and took extra steps she didn't have to make our stay extra comfortable and a HUGE blessing. We woke up refreshed and ready to start again on our road trip with three young children. Thanks Ann for being an excellent hostess. We will come back when in the area.

nice rest rooms, high commercial toilets with elongated seats,lots of room in the showers. long pull through sites. unlike the kennebeck,sd koa. I didn't like that place at all.they shouldn't even be a koa. crummy cheap small toilets, small sites,no privacy in the small showers. they rip you off with their high prices in the snack bar.

Was extremely muddy, tent sites were a mess. Bathroom, outdated but clean

The staff was extremely friendly however the roads and spaces could use a load of gravel. The heavy rain made almost all the roads a mud pit. Very messy.

I stayed in a small cabin---loved it---far away from others and quiet, peaceful. A good place for a good night's sleep. Thank you.

Just passing through so location worked. A lot of road noise. Restrooms weren't the cleanest
