Beautiful campground!

This is our 2nd time staying here. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful, and it is a relaxed place to stay and enjoy the beauty of the Badlands. We have given it a 5 star rating but it wouldn't let me click on the above stars. It is also, close to the Minute Man Missile Site which is a nice tour to do.

This was our first stay at a koa campground. It was very nice, lots of accommodations, and very clean.

Beautiful scenery in and around campground. Staff gave us great information re things to see and do. We would have missed a great wildlife scenic drive if they hadn't informed us about it. Stayed an extra day it was so nice!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very quiet n kid friendly tho pool wasn't open during our stay. Also playground area has stickers so please make sure kids have socks n shoes on while playing. And be careful basketball court has stickers as well. Getting stuck on our ball. Otherwise very quiet & peaceful place. Enjoyed our family time there.

Magical experience with thousands of swallows coming in to rooste on the bridge just outside the campground in May. We had a great view from the dining-room of our RV. WiFi works great IF you follow the instructions. Campground hosts work long days and are VERY helpful.

Our cabin was very clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Both the heater and air conditioner worked well and the bathrooms/showers were also clean and well kept.

Friendly staff and great location, however, I don't think KOA should charge for extra people. Recommend reviewing that policy. Other than that it was a great stay.

Please help us and mention what you needed. Sorry we missed the mark.

The campground is nice, clean and fairly quiet. Just a little road noise. Staff very friendly and helpful, owner as well. The only reason for a little lower rating is that while I did understand there was an extra fee for having an extra vehicle, I did not realize there was a pet fee for the campsites. I may have missed that in the wording, but I encounter it so little that it took me by surprise.


Please call us. We want to refund the "pet fee", as it was not supposed to be charged. Only in cabins for more cleaning required. Sorry we made a mistake. Karen @ Badlands.

The owners were incredibly nice and went above and beyond to be helpful. It's a nice spot with a great playground, nice little shop and clean facilities.

We always love it at White River. Like an oasis in the Badlands. Peaceful & beautiful.

Very nice campground and management was very friendly.

A quiet, pet-friendly property with helpful staff. It was the perfect place for us to rest our weary bones!
Oct 06, 2015
We stayed just before the place was closing for the season and it was very nice. An issue developed with the water system the morning of check-out so it wasn't a big issue for us. This was slightly inconvenient as we were going to shower before we left but we consider what happened as part of a camping experience. We are planning on returning to this KOA next year.

campground is clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the fact that there is a large outer area to walk with your pet. I was able to do laundry there in the evening, and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Enjoyed our stay there and would definitely come again. Loved the closeness to the Badlands and the minuteman missile site and the Wall drugstore.

This is the perfect place to stay! Beautiful Campground, nice peoples. Only the showers need some renovation (old but they are very clean and the shower head is to far down)

Our site was very close to our neighbor even though the campground was not full. Also, we did not have a fire pit other than the charcoal grilling box, which was awkward. Super clean site and bathroom, easy accessibility from the road, very nice camp host! Thanks for a great night overall.

Beautiful campground. We had a good stay while visiting the Badlands.
Oct 02, 2015
Well-represented on their site, exactly what I expected. Nice folks, friendly place, and it's quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

We got in after hours. Very easy to find our packet with our Kabin number and key. Kabin was clean and easy to locate. Enjoyed friendly hospitality in the morning.

First stayed at this camp in 1995. It gets better every time I come back. Always a warm welcome from helpful staff. The tent sites are great - it's nice to see that some of the KOA's remember the tent campers!

Nice trees on the grounds. Quite. Nice bathrooms.
Oct 01, 2015

Great folks, great facility. Clean restrooms, showers. Quiet and away from traffic.

Very clean and well maintained campground. Great proximity to the Badlands NP. Watch your GPS though. Ours, a new Garmin RV 760, coming in on I90 from the east, routed us 40 miles out of the way. It should have taken us to Wall and then due south for only 8 miles.

Great folks, camped next door to them. Very friendly and accomodating. Would stay here again.
