Campground Reviews

Sep 09, 2014
Wonderful campground. Although nearing the end of their season, the owners were exceptionallly responsive to guest requests. Very well maintained, great shade and large open areas, too. Best campground from which to visit the Badlands!!!

We always stay at the Badlands KOA when we're in this area. We love the location near the White River and the shady site. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean and welcoming. We've recommended this place to several people as the best place to camp in the Badlands.

Excellent campground! The hosts and their staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and well maintained - the grounds, the rest rooms, the laundry - everything! One of the best run campgrounds I have ever visited.

Kind of "out of the way" you have to go through Badlands National Park to get to the campground. Facilities are dated but functional. There is little in the way of restruant or fuel in the area so plan ahead. Very pleasant and helpful staff!

Wow! Pulled in after many miles. Check-in was a snap (nice people). Followed a cart to site. Sites were level and cable and WiFi signals were strong. Quiet, clean and appealing grounds. Propane service and extra help with directions enhanced our trip. Location was perfect for visiting the Badlands.

This KOA is one that is at the top of our list. Quiet and peaceful surroundings and great personnel. It was nice to be in pleasant surroundings and nice to be out of cell range. We will recommend this KOA and will be back next year.

Very peaceful and quiet. Too bad half the restroom/laundry facilities and the pool got closed for the season, our vacation time doesn't end on Labor Day. Very friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We know that many folks are traveling after Labor Day and keep as much of our facilities open as possible. However, winter will be here before we know it and it is necessary for us to begin to winterize some of our buildings to protect the water lines.

We arrived late and sites were limited. Our site was literally impossible to do electric and water/sewer. Wife was unhappy with shower. Clogged drain/water valve fell off. Staff was very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry that we did not have a site available for you that met your needs. We do appreciate that you informed us of the issue with the shower so that we could take care of it quickly.

Great location and the staff was nice. Michael is a member of the staff and he was great. He gave us great advise on things to do, places to shop and great viewing spots in the Badlands. He really knew the surrounding area. Workers like him made our trip even better.

People at the front desk were not very friendly. It rained at night and the site ended up with about a 1/2 inch of water where the trailer was parked. Area was nice but the people were not.

The cabin that we rented was in great condition, the bathroom was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the campground was well maintained.

Excellent location to explore the Badlands. Help, friendly staff. Toilets and bathrooms OK - clean, but could do with update.

Very nice park. Lots of activities , especially for kids. Unfortunately, no cell phone signal and trees block satellite signal. Good gravel roads and pads, which are level. Would definitely stay here again.

Next time, let us know and we will reserve a satellite-friendly site for you!

Beautiful setting. Clean laundry. Very nice sites and campers spread out when park wasn't full. Helpful people resolved a problem with our cable set up so we can get cable for the rest of our trip. Loved the stay

Perfect setting!! Very accommodating staff!!

No cell phone service at all here. WiFi ok. Cancellation policy for KOA as a whole stinks especially if you change to a different KOA. You should not be charged $10.00 if you simply move to a different KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry that this can be confusing. Each KOA is independently owned and operated and as such, reservations can't be "transferred" between properties. We do our best to make you aware of our cancellation policy at the time you make your reservation so that you can plan ahead.

Our favorite campground ever. Clean restrooms, they clean each campsite as people leave, dog park and dog wash, mini golf, fun cycles, biscuits and gravy for breakfast(eggs and bacon also), Indian tacos for dinner- yum, Native American dances sometimes, very friendly staff, pool and minutes from the Badlands loop.
