Campground Reviews

Jul 28, 2013
The nicest KOA I've ever seen. Great staff, clean Kabin. But that dog park.... THANK YOU! Our dogs loved it, helped them so much on a big vacation.

We were only here one night, but would have enjoyed a longer stay. Nice location, friendly staff, good WiFi.

We camped all week, and this was our favorite location. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Pool was nice in the hot weather. We didn't know that we had to pay the park fee to get to it though. And of course the cicadeas, but that obviously wasn't the KOAs fault.

This was one of our favorite KOAs, only suggestion, add a bouncy pillow for the kids! Great food service and convenient but quite location.

Very pleasant and quite. Loved the stay, this was my second time at this KOA

Nice, great breakfast and campsites. Quiet and nice location in the Badlands.

Nice and well maintained campground. Like the shade in the middle of the badland and the sink for washing dishes. Disappointed that the mini golf was so expensive AND that the ball was "ate" after the last hole. Really? I think that having to pay for every activity besides the pool is a little over the top. KOA's are more expensive than state campgrounds and there should be a reason for it.

WE WERE PUT TOO CLOSE TO THE SEWAGE TREATMENT FIELD AND THE STENCH WAS PRETTY BAD.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry that you experienced that. We put a lot of time into maintaining our septic system to prevent unpleasant odors, but weather and other factors can cause odor occasionally. In response to your feedback, we have made some changes to improve the situation.

The person who checked us in gave us the shadiest site in the campground. Staff very friendly & helpful.

Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful.

The service was exemplary. The addition of the provided meals was delightful.

Campground was very clean.We stayed in a camping cabin. No internet while we stayed. No cell phone service at the campground, and the flies and gnats were unbearable. None of this bothered our grandkids.We would stay there again.

We tented at this site and loved our site and thought the whole campsite was friendly, ver clean and organized. We enjoyed the pancake breakfast that you could buy for a very reasonable amount and also used their very clean laundry facilities.
Jul 26, 2013
I really enjoyed staying there. I always try and stay at a KOA camp ground whenever I can.
Jul 26, 2013
Tent site was very nice. Staff was very helpful and bathrooms were pretty clean. Pool not open during hours we were there. Playground was ok.
Jul 26, 2013
Great setting, clean facilities, friendly staff, convenient extras.
Jul 26, 2013
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed the night so I cannot rate the other services. The only reason I am not giving the camp a great rating is because our site was close to the sewage pond and during the night it seemed to have gone septic or something and had a terrible odor. The airation water was green so maybe you should increase the treatment or add peroxied/O2

I am so sorry that you experienced an odor from the septic system. We do spend a lot of time maintaining it, but many factors can cause an occasional odor. Thank you for your feedback.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin and it was very nice. Loved having our own bathroom. I'm glad there was a laundry facility on site.
Jul 25, 2013
This is a great KOA...I would recommend this park to anyone. Kids loved the pool and I loved the wider spaces.
Jul 25, 2013
Another great year of camping @ Badlands! Your people were once again pleasant & helpful. See you next year!

Great place! Customer Service was excellent! I had to use the laundry room and it was very clean!
Jul 25, 2013
Clean and neat. The cicadas (so) were LOUD but hey, it only happens every 17 years. We were lucky to experience it since we don't have them where we live on WI.
Jul 25, 2013
The deluxe cabin was devine. First time at a Koa, and it was a nice and peaceful. After check out, had an issue with the billing, however it was properly resolved quickly.

First time KOA campers. Friendly staff escorted us to our camp site which was appreciated. Well maintained grounds. The pancake breakfast seemed popular. Great offer to get campers on the road quicker. We waited with others only to get half done pancakes. Disappointed crowd. Suggest better quality breakfast - would draw repeat customers.

Big grounds for exploring, nice kiddie pool for the little ones, clean bathrooms, yummy breakfast pancakes, and the hosts are the best we've met.

It was a quite place lots of shade. Owners were very helpful. Would stay again if in the area.
Jul 23, 2013
Great spot good people. Were very helpful when I thought I had an issue. Turned out to be bugs in my water lines!!! YUK! Great facilities and VERY close to the badlands!

We stayed for 2 nights. Wish it could have been longer. Lots of trees, nice pool and full hookups make this a little oasis in the badlands. We enjoyed both the pancake breakfast and indian taco dinner. Staff was super friendly.
Jul 23, 2013
Wonderful campground, very well kept and clean. Nice shade trees! Staff is great, special thanks to Connie for being extremely helpful and friendly.
Jul 23, 2013
Bugs were very loud, takes forever to be served pancakes & we could smell the sewer lagoon from our campsite.. Other than those comments it is clean, friendly staff and very family friendly campground.

Nice clean cabin and restrooms. Friendly staff but the bugs were horrible!
Jul 22, 2013
Great location, clean and family friendly:-)
Jul 22, 2013
One of the nicest KOAs I have stayed at. The trees were trimmed up high so they do not hit campers as they travel through the campground.

This spot was the best part of our trip! Amazingly beautiful location, all of the amenities you need, and clean! We will stay there time and time again! Thanks for the great memories!
Jul 22, 2013
We have stayed at 8 or 10 KOA Kampgrounds and found the Badlands KOA to be by far the best. It was like camping in the middle of a park and the grounds were kept immaculate. They even served breakfast and dinner for a minimal cost. The dog run was huge and they even had the facilities to bathe your pet. The only drawback was spotty cell phone service, but that was common in the area.

Beautiful campground!
Jul 22, 2013
Friendly staff, nice breakfast, perfect location. Water/Elec/Sew configuration could be better. A "real" firepit (container ring with grill above) would be nice.
Jul 21, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so peaceful!
