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.

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!

Our first KOA experience. Enjoyed our stay and the location was perfect. We compared all of our other KOAs to this one and this one was the best.

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!

Great people. Nice cabin. Awesome food. The best views from a koa so far.Easy late night check in. Great proximity to badlands national park.

Nice quiet campground. Easy to find. Mosquitos were horrible. Pack lots of bug spray.Cabins were clean. Mattress are thin and uncomfortable. Not much to do for teenagers. Breakfast was good and filling. River was dry, no fishing this time of the year.


Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we have had an abnormally wet spring here, which has resulted in an unusual number of mosquitos. We are spraying the grounds when it is safe to do so and treating standing water on our property.

The employees were very friendly and helpful and the park had a lot of amenities. Only complaint was the flys! I would recommend this KOA. Had a great time!


We are so sorry about the flies. An abnormally wet spring has made the flies a nuisance in this region. I hope you will visit us again when they are not an issue.

Campground was nice, an oasis in the Badlands. Only issue were the flies when we ate the on-site dinner and breakfast. A screened-in dining area would have been great!

Very nice. We came in late after check in time and was very easy to get keys and find our little cabin. The only problem we had was finding the camp ground with our smart phone and GPS. The location was not correct in the satellite

Nice campground but mattresses in cabin too thin, wi-fi spotty, and mosquitoes terrible. But then we were camping by a river.
