Let us do the cooking!
Don't miss these great opportunities at our Kook House. Very popular is our all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. We serve up hundreds of pancakes with side orders of sausage, bacon, and coffee, OJ, milk, or water to quench your thirst. Delicious biscuits and gravy are also an option. Indian Tacos are our latest big hit. We start with "Woodenknife" fry bread, made locally, and pile on seasoned beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes with salsa & sour cream on the side. Our guests love this local favorite and it is a complete meal. We also serve cheesy fry bread and for dessert we offer cinnamon fry bread or ice cream.
Stroll the perimeter of our 31 acre campground and enjoy the serenity of the White River and views of the Badlands. Bird watchers will marvel at the Cliff Swallows nesting by the thousands, under the bridges bordering our property.
Camping is not complete without a nice campfire. The KOA is one of the few campgrounds where campfires are allowed in the Badlands area. Plenty of wood is available for sale in our store.
Meet Your Hosts
"We want your stay with us to be memorable!"Realizing that their kids were growing up fast, Steve and Marci started looking for a new adventure for their family. They wanted to work together and make lasting memories. Since some of their favorite family memories were made during a brief stint living in an RV and during later camping trips, they decided to leave the suburbs behind and purchase a campground. All four Kyles and their tabby cat packed up and moved to a beautiful oasis in the badlands.
Now, their goal is to treat every guest like family. Steve grew up around a family business and later pursued a career in product management. He knows that an emphasis on quality and attention to detail are what makes a business memorable. That’s why you’ll experience sparkling clean restrooms, hearty hot breakfasts and friendly, helpful staff. Marci is a sign language interpreter and has worked with international students. Communication is her strong suit. Her focus is on making your stay GREAT. Both of them want your experience at Badlands KOA to be one that you will remember for all of the right reasons.
Because this is about family, campers will also see the Kyle kids pitching in. They have great ideas about how to have fun and are a great resource for information on where to hike or see wildlife. Activities at Badlands KOA are kid-tested and kid-approved.
Whether you are looking for some family fun, or prefer shady peace and quiet, the Kyles invite you to join their “camping family”.
