Cabin Reviews

Jul 16, 2014
The staff was very welcoming and helpful in making reservations. The pool and laundry room were well kept and the store even had farm fresh eggs. The cook shack was great, too. Highly recommend!

It was a nice campground our cabin had small ants in bathroom but all around it was nice. Good place if you want to stay at badlands.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was great. The campground was well taken care of. Perfect spacing between campsites. My son loved the smaller pool, especially for the younger kids. We will be visiting, when we come through the Badlands again!

Really enjoy KOA camping but this one left a little bit to be desired. It was a little impersonal and all the employees seemed rushed, like there were too many campers to care about.

Nice, quiet, simple campground. I stayed in a Kabin which was clean, comfortable, with air. Breakfasts were good with large portions, no need to get the large sizes. WiFi was really slow first night but good otherwise. I would stay again.

Good but when we got there for late checkin there was map to one cabin and key to different cabin. Very confusing.

The only complaint we have is that the mosquitoes were hungry. Other than that the staff that work at the KOA were exceptional. I had a problem with my credit card being locked up. They helped me to call the credit card people and get it straightened out. We had to leave a day early because my daughter's father-in-law had to go through an emergency surgery. Had a great time.


We are working on the mosquitos and have seen improvement. Glad you had a good experience and hope all went well.

I love it when people welcome motorcyclists. Me and my daughter stayed here in June of 2014. I like that they served food but what we didn't like was the price for a very small coffee and the food was overpriced as well. I love the spot though, right on the fringe of Badlands National Park!

We enjoyed our stay. we had just stayed at another KOA the night prior (KOA is relatively new to us) and they had free mini golf, free pancake breakfast etc so was surprised you all charged. Kids wished the pool was warmer. Beautiful location. But would come back again!Clean grounds and facilities, friendly & helpful staff. You can tell that this KOA is run by caring & dedicated managers.

Clean, friendly. We got very little pool time because it didn't open until 10:00 am, an hour before checkout time. Breakfast was good, but too many add-on prices. Bacon and a drink would have more than doubled the price of the breakfast.


We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your pancakes. At just over $3, for a large stack, we feel that is a great deal! We do understand that food costs are going up and do our best to provide a la carte items at a great price.

We had the deluxe kabin and we were very pleased with our stay. It rained at night, so being in the kabin was worth it.

Nice grounds, clean cabin.

Clean bathrooms and cabin, nice dog run, great location for Badlands National Park. Owners posted weather warnings and safe buildings including their own home. Good value.

We have stayed at lots of KOA Kamping Kabins and this one is the only one that did not have air conditioning. Also, the office had very limited hours.
Jun 29, 2014
Great time. Accommodated us needing an extra night. Kids wanted to stay here more than go and see the sights.
Jun 28, 2014
Great location. The campground was spotless, and our cabin was as clean as new. The only down fall was the don't have a whole lot of activities for kids and charge for there run down putt-putt. The staff is very nice and have a clean pool. The restrooms were very clean as the laundry areas.

Beautiful campground, great priced cabins and a friendly, helpful staff!! I always stay here when I come through South Dakota.

Overall a very nice place to stay with very clean facilities and a very nice camp host. If possible to get better WiFi/Internet in the future that would be great. Will definitely stay again.

Very friendly staff. Great location at the edge of Badlands National Park. Quiet for sleeping as you are away away from I-90. Try the Indian Tacos!

We have stayed there previously and because of the wonderful hospitality and ammenities we brought more family together this last week for a little family reunion. You also provided us with good weather. Thank you.

This was a one stop stay for our Badlands adventure...perfect location, friendly staff, and good accommodations.

Place was nice but the bugs were plenty mosquitoes everywhere


So sorry you had a problem with mosquitos. They can sometimes be an issue in the outdoors during a rainy spring. We are doing everything we can to mitigate mosquitos in ways that are safe for our guests.

Awesome place to stay with kids, extremely easy to get to the Badlands Park, but you'll also have beautiful views of formations outside the park close by. Dinner and breakfast are adequate and you can't beat sitting next to a playground rather than kids losing it in a restaurant.

We were disappointed that they ran out of breakfast on Sunday - not many options in Interior, SD!


We're sorry that we ran out of biscuits and gravy on the day you were here. There are always plenty of hot, fresh pancakes.

Beautiful campground!
Jun 12, 2014
I feel sorry for all those campers in the Badlands who don't stay here! So comfortable and relaxing.

An Oasis in the middle of Badlands. The Kook Shack was the best and so conveinient.

Enjoyed a kamping cabin and the meals at dinner and breakfast. Relaxing, good bird watching.
Jun 10, 2014
Awesome place! We got in three hours early and they set us up in our cabin no problem. The pool was nice and refreshing. Everything was super clean! The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. We saw so many beautiful places because of their recommendations. Thank you!!

Very friendly staff!

Great stay for our large group. Youth had a wonderful time in a beautiful location. It poured the night we were there so I was very glad we decided to go in cabins instead of tents. Very nice people and breakfast was delicious!
