Staff is amazing. Great prices on camp sites and cabin. The campground and its amenities is exceptionally clean, onsite store prices are very reasonable and the overall atmosphere makes you feel right at home. Don't miss the all you can eat pancake breakfast. It is delicious and served with a big smile. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay in South Dakota over Memorial Day weekend!

It was really cold the night we booked a campsite, and we were able to upgrade to a delux cabin. It was great! So clean and cozy. We had a wonderful time. The dog park was also a huge bonus!

My husband I and stayed for three nights in a deluxe cabin and it was a brand new, beautiful little cabin! We were very pleasantly surprised by this KOA, as after driving in such a desolate area, we weren't expecting much, but it was well-maintained! The grounds were nice and it was nice to see trees on the property; we weren't expecting that considering the surrounding landscape!

I had 4 wonderful days in a cabin at the Badlands campgrounds. Such a peaceful place to stay. I will definitely stay there again. I recommend it highly!

We enjoyed our stay. You were very accomodating with us since we were towing a trailer and it worked out well. Everything was very clean and we hope we left it like we found it. Enjoy your winter.

frustrated that my stay was just charged to my card without asking as I stood there with cash in my hand. When i mentioned wanting to pay cash, the clerk told me she just charged it, and gave the impression that crediting it and taking cash was far to much work. Site was nice, but staff was short and unfriendly.


All sites require that a one night deposit be charged to your credit card at the time of the reservation. However, it is always possible to credit that charge in exchange for cash. We do that routinely and would have been happy to do that for you had you asked.

bugs everywhere! the stagnant river behind the park lent itself to multiple mosquitos. the cabins are very very far from the bathrooms. well, i guess there were bathrooms closer but they closed them down to winterize them in the summer!


While September is a great time to travel due to fewer people and lower rates, it also means that we must begin to winterize some of our water lines in advance of cold temperatures. In fact, lows the week of your visit were below freezing. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Immaculate cabins, bathrooms, and showers. Also, the owners were so helpful when we looked for places to eat. Would definitely stay here again!

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.

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!

We loved the campground. It would have been nice if the mini golf was free but that is the only thing I would change
Aug 22, 2014
Everything was awesome! There were quite a few flies around being pesky which was the only negative point. I do understand that it's cattle county and the staff is doing excellent work containing the problem, though.

Beautiful location. Overpriced breakfast and coffee--at other KOAs we were offered free coffee in the morning. Cabin was clean and comfortable.

We loved the cabin area because it had trees, grass, fire ring, and enough room inside for the four of us. The bathrooms were clean and not far to walk. The only thing I would change is the mattresses. They were way to hard.
