Great time. Accommodated us needing an extra night. Kids wanted to stay here more than go and see the sights.

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.


I believe you may be mistaking us for somewhere else. All of our cabins have air conditioning and our office is open 14hrs during peak season.

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.

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.

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.

I feel sorry for all those campers in the Badlands who don't stay here! So comfortable and relaxing.

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!!

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!

The hosts were great - very friendly and helpful. It wss my first time at a KOA campground. I didn't know about the latch lever and couldn't open the cabin door. The host Lady helped me with that. Room was warm and cozy.

The only negative we had was there were really no eating places near campsite and since we were staying in a "no cooking, 1room cabin" it created a bit of an inconvenience.


During our peak season, we serve our famous pancake breakfast and Indian taco dinners. We try to make campers aware that our amenities,as well as those in the National Park, begin to close for the season after Labor Day.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this KOA. From check in to check out, it was a very pleasant experience. Grounds, kabin, and restroom facilities were clean and well maintained. We were appreciative of the Wi-Fi as there is not much cell signal. We did not bring our dogs on this trip, but thought the dog park and bathing tub were thoughtful additions.

Was expecting more than a sink for the Kamp Kitchen. However it is late in the season. Dog friendly which is always a plus. GREAT location for the Badlands.

KOA in the badlands was a wonderful backdrop to our introductory night in South Dakota. It was quaint and clean, simple and quiet. Loved the pool AND the stars. Thank you so much!
