One of the best KOA campgrounds we have stayed in. Wide sites, immaculate bathrooms, friendly staff and well maintained grounds plus wonderful scenery.

The stay was wonderful except as our 3rd KOA to stay at none seem to have any wheelchair accessible sites to allow my paralyzed wife the ability to maneuver the site in her wheelchair. Our last stay at a KOA.


We are very sorry that your experience here did not meet your expectations. We do have plans in place to make the campground more accessible and welcome your specific feedback as we move in that direction.

The campground is very nice, with good roads and facilities. The Bark Park and dog wash was very near us with easy access. The only thing I couldn't take was the cottonwoods. I'm highly allergic, and the cotton was flying. That would be my ONLY caution, as otherwise it's a great place to stay.

We stayed for two nights. The hosts were really friendly. The camp was very clean! I liked the trees, flowers and bushes between our neighbors. The setting in the Badlands was perfect for our travels.

I can't express enough how impressed I was with this KOA. The facility is beautiful. Amenities are convenient, clean, and useful. The hosts were gracious and helpful. Without a doubt I will be returning for a longer stay.

First-time RVers, and this was our first camping experience (bought our rig and hit the road). The KOA staff was very kind and helpful to a couple of newbies. Peaceful, beautiful setting. Extremely dog-friendly with a great fenced play area. Would highly recommend this KOA!

This is a beautiful campground and exceptionally maintained; clean bathrooms, mowed grass, sparkling pool and great pooch run area. It does get crowded but the owners were esp. accommodating when I requested a move to another site. Wonderful KOA.

Nice campgrounds, but the weeds and Bullhead stickers were horrible. On of the campground hosts (no name) was really cranky, she would be a deterrent if we would return. Excellent location for visiting the Bad Lands of South Dakota though only four miles from the So. entrence. I can't believe how bad the weeds and stickers were though, some weeds were over 18 inches tall. bad news.


Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that you had a problem with weeds on your site. Our maintenance staff is working diligently to keep the grounds mowed.

Was just in for the night early in the season. The grounds were beautiful, service friendly. Can't comment on the facilities as did not use them.

Wonderfully friendly staff, exceptionally clean campground. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. We extended our stay by a couple of days because we were so impressed.

They family that runs this KOA were very nice! This is a very clean facility with many things for kids to do. They are situated in a beautiful area. We look forward to going back.

Wonderful stay, wonderful hosts. We had no problems getting our big rig into the campsite. Wifi good, cell service VERY limited. Great base camp for the Badlands. If going to/from Rapid City take US44. It is a beautiful drive and gives you a break from the interstate.

Quiet location, owners have made an effort to keep campers connected if they want to be. Even has an exercise room!

Nice quiet location. Since it was early in the season, they were just getting organized. Did not use any of the facilities, so I do not know their condition.

just outside of the badlands. rustic setting just what one would expect. friendly owners. even the kids got in the act and helped picked up the trash. much nicer than the surrounding campgrounds

We enjoyed the Indian tacos, but not the black flies that wanted to join us! The staff was very courteous and helpful. The scenery was excellent. We'll be back!

Heavy duty power lines are right behind campground!


I think you may have meant this for another campground. There are no power lines near our campground. It is surrounded on 3 sides by the peaceful White River

Can not say enough good about this campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. Helped us with things to do in the area. This is a must stay when we return to the area. The sites were perfect combination of shade and open space. EASY to get in and out of. KOA has a standard we have grown to expect, but this one is a grade above the rest. Thank you for an enjoyable stay...

Clean, quiet, well-equipped and well-run by friendly owner-managers, who were totally willing to coordinate two adjoining FHU sites for family members. Fun dog park and even a booster bath. Only downside was lack of Verizon.

Great place to visit and stay. Very clean both grounds and inside rest rooms and showers. First stayed here some 30+ years ago and several times since. Sharon and Steve

Very nice campground. The lane between pull thru sites was a bit narrow for when you are leaving campsite with your RV towing vehicle, but we managed just fine.

We liked this KOA for it's natural and beautiful setting. The owners were helpful. The kids had fun but hinted that it could be a bit updated for kid play equipment and activity areas.
