KoA camp workers running their Harley motorcycles for 20 minutes during the afternoon while KOA staff said nothing to them spoiled the stay a little. Bathroomso clean, nice running, hiking road just across the street. About four miles from Badlands. Check In staff on duty very helpful.


Thank you for altering us to this. We will be sure it is not a problem in the future.

This is my 3rd time traveling across the US staying at KOA's and the Badlands KOA is the best! It's a beautiful, spacious campground with really great people running it. Definitely worth a visit!

Wonderfully quiet but friendly campground. Staff are very helpful, and my stay in the cabin was more than I had hoped for! Cabins are very clean and do not smell funny at all. An AC and heater make the stay comfortable. Would definitely recommend this little gem of a campground outside of Interior!

I arrived late but everything I needed to find my campground and the rest of the facilities was prepared and easy to find at the office. The bathroom/showers were clean and looked to be well maintained.

When we arrived the Kampground was not fully open for the season but we were graciously welcomed and had a pleasant one night stay. If I return to the Badlands for and extended time I would certainly stay at this Koa.

The owners were SO nice and the area was close to everything but still very peaceful.

I've reviewed before, so I'll keep this short. Great KOA, with great features and a friendly staff. We love going there.

Beautiful stay just 6 miles from the visitor center. Well kept park with a great dog run. They were putting in a new pool so should be great too.

Great staff and clean bathrooms with hot showers and great water pressure. Lots of trees and good sites.

A peaceful oasis, clean restrooms, and very friendly staff. This is off the main highway, but worth the 4 mile drive!

This is a good location for exploring the Badlands. Bathrooms were clean, but campsites needed attention. Our picnic table was covered with bird and tree droppings. Grass area looked like it had not been raked this season. We have stayed at many KOAs and have gotten used to the golf cart noise and dust, but it was ridiculous here. It was nearly constant.


We are a nesting grounds for several species of birds. We are sorry they visited your site after we had cleaned it. Shoulder season is the time of getting winter off of the sites, and we apologize yours was not yet spiffed for spring.

Hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful. The place is extremely clean and well organized. I LOVE the Badlands and this KOA makes it highly accessible and it's a GREAT place to stay. This was my 3rd visit and I'll keep coming back!

Hosts were great! Can't beat this location. Even slightly off season, was beautiful scenery and a quiet setting.

Great staff, nice site!

Bob And Karen are wonderful host. They make everyone feel welcome and are making white river the best koa ever.

Very accommodating even though it was still out of season. Great place for motorcyclists to get up and ride the Badlands the next morning.

Lovely area and great cabins. Get the accommodations of bathroom in the cabin along with microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. Excellent prices. A truly wonderfully comfortable stay.

Great stay!

We missed having a chair in the cabin. We couldn't get a decent radio station either. The bathrooms were just average and better lighting in the cabin would be nice. There were too many flies outside at the table and the water was quite soft when washing your hair. The whole area we found to be quite expensive.

Great owners

Nicest koa ever Bob and Karen are fantastic host
Oct 15, 2016
Bathrooms nasty and not cleaned


We are so sorry you were disappointed. Perhaps you were not aware that the campground was officially closed during your stay, and the facilities are not maintained as often as when the campground is open. Please come see us during our regular season: May 1 to Sept 30. Thanks.

We had a great time. There were two RVs in our party, they parked us together and insured we were happy for the evening. Next day they gave us tips of the area sites to see. They were glad we selected their camp to stay at, wished us well on our future travels when we departed. Thank you Bob and Karen.

Beautiful park with lots of trees. All services worked well. Very convenient to Badlands NP.

This is the best KOA's I've ever been too. What makes it the best, might be it's location. But even still, sites are big and clean. Lots of room for tent camping. It serves, I think, all three meals under a very nice covered picnic area. Never ate there, but I'm sure it's good and fun for a family.
