Campground Reviews

Aug 02, 2013
It was a great campground and the staff were nice and helpful. We liked the Indian Tacos!

The campground is just a few miles outside of Badlands Nat'l Park and was easy to find. Our tent site was clean and flat. The staff lent us a grill to use over our fire pit, which was wonderful. The bathrooms were reasonably clean. The pool was clean, including the kiddie pool.

Great location in proximity to Badlands National Park. Excellent dog park at the camp, mature trees offering shadey sites, and the small general store/office was very helpful in this desolate area, where there are zero convenience stores or restaurants. The campground also offered a breakfast and dinner option on site... very helpful (and the food was decent). Downside: biting black flies!

There was a nice pad made up to put the tent on which is much nicer than being on an incline or trying to ram tent stakes into solid ground. It rained all night but the lady at reception had warned us ahead of time and we had our rain gear ready!

Great stay while in the Badlands. It was nice to have some trees around the camp and the swimming pool to relax in. Very friendly owners.

Clean washrooms. Shade trees are huge plus. Good pool area and it was really hot those days. Short drive to the badlands. Good amenities and friendly staff.

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Very friendly, clean shady sites. All was great.

This was a very nice place to stay. Our kids enjoyed the campsite and we appreciated that we weren't packed in like sardines and had some room to ourselves. The pool was great, kids loved the trikes and fun was had all around. Great staff as well!

My family and I stayed for three nights in one of KOA's cozy cabins. We were thrilled with the cleanliness, privacy and overall experience of staying at a KOA Kampground.

This is one of the nicest KOA's I've stayed at, and the ONLY one with shade in the Badlands! The restrooms were always clean and the store was fairly well-stocked. Having access to a pool was also a great addition during the summer heat. If planning on staying at KOA's during a trip to the Black Hills - be warned, none in that region are as nice and quiet as this one.

The tent village was well maintained.

Nice campground
Jul 28, 2013
Loved the shade. We enjoyed our stay and were happy that we hadn't picked any of the places that we drove by on the way. This was our first KOA.
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.
Jul 27, 2013
This was one of our favorite KOAs, only suggestion, add a bouncy pillow for the kids! Great food service and convenient but quite location.
Jul 27, 2013
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.

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.
