Since I was doing a lot of sight seeing and going to the Sturgis Rally, I was bothered by the need for driving such a distance. Of course, that is a real attraction for many! Most dog-friendly park I've visited. Thanks.

Great spot for families to use as home base to visit the badlands! Everyone was so friendly, too.

We had a good time, I like this campground. It's not too crowded like a lot of KOA's. We'll camp here again in the future.

The Badlands/White River KOA is a wonderful KOA with a perfect location adjacent to the Badlands. My only criticism is that they provided us with a cottage for 4 when I had asked for one for my family of five so we had to use a blow-up mattress to big deal.

I apologize for the inconvenience. I'm not sure how that error occurred, but I'm glad you were able to make that cabin work for you.

Only problem was occasional smells from the sewage pond. We were on site 47, nearest the pond.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Since we have been made aware of this issue from camper feedback, we have made some changes to our treatment of our septic system and we are fairly certain that the issue has been taken care of. Thank you for your feedback. It makes a difference!

Camped in tent on ground. Clean, well maintained, good availability of services. A suggestion for improvement is to add reflectors to edge of road to assist in navigating dark roads.

Thank you for your feedback. In response to earlier camper feedback, we brought in out of town technicians to improve our wifi...glad it worked!

This is a gem of a place to stay in the badlands. It's so close, but yet shady and comfortable cabins for a rest after a long drive from the twin cities. The meals that are served are a hidden bonus!

One of the good ones!

Nice quiet place. Great sites with lots of room between them. Clean. Great selection of ice cream in the freezer! :)

This campground is peaceful and the service was great, the beds are hard, I would recommend a soft mattress pad to take with you

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!

Everything fine with the cabin but the bathrooms were really unclean...showers were rather awful.

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!

Very hospitable. When we had a problem with our camper staff went out of the way to help us!

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.
