great place and location! Thumbs up!

The only negative thing I have to say is about the camping "pads" that they have tent campers use. The pebbles make it hard to secure the stakes for the tent, and therefore the tent is not as secure in inclement weather. My tent came down twice in a thunderstorm because of this. It has withstood stronger storms and the only difference was the rock pads. Otherwise, everything was great!

Pretty good experience at this campground- helpful, efficient staff, level grassy sites, but can get quite windy!

We were very grateful for our package set out for us, as we arrived around midnight. Tent site was perfect, enjoyed Jim's pancakes and found fun items in the gift store. Only problem was bees that persistently tried sharing our breakfasts. Location terrific!

The bathrooms and showers, the laundry room were all clean. I would like more hand driers. There were some mosquitoes but not too bad.In all, yes I would come back there again.

Nice camp ground but they nickel and dime you for just about everything.

Spent two day with our Boy Scout troop and found the campgrounds clean, well maintained and the staff was very helpful. Would recommend to other Troops and campers. Thanks for the wonderful time!

Wonderful! Easily the best campground of our 2 week trip. The grounds and facilities were immaculate. The surroundings are truly picturesque and relaxing. The whole staff made us feel welcome and appreciated. Thanks for a great 4 night stay.

Lovely KOA adjacent to the White River. Very clean and quiet. We really appreciated the dog play area where we could let our pup get some energy out off-leash. We will be back!

We enjoyed our stay greatly. The family running the KOA were nice and helpful. Access to the Badlands is convenient yet not right on the busy sites. We will be back!

Good campsite - good service. Too much noise due to camp group next to us. They were very loud till late in the evening.

Tent camping site was fine. But needing to get a good night's sleep was important to us. We had people come in to the site beside us at 9PM with kids and didn't quiet down till 1AM

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so very sorry that you experienced an issue with a noisy neighbor. Our quiet hours begin at 10pm and we do our best to enforce them.

Trusted GPS and got lost. Signage could be better to help locate the camp.

Nice shaded tent site in the Badlands, which is a rare thing. Normally stay in the parks but wanted some shade and that was provided. Staff were great and breakfast was really good. Pool was great. Wifi easy to pick up.

Our family of 5 stayed at this KOA for 3 nights. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The whole place was clean. As tenters the dishwashing station was very helpful. We had two tents for my wife and I and our three kids. The staff helped us find a site that would work well with having two tents. We'd stay here again.

Very nice campground although our site had an issue with ants. Despite having dryers, I wish they could allow us to use clotheslines.

It was nice. But compared to Erie not nearly as kept up. And not the koas fault but the bathrooms were misused at night and made a very unpleasant experience leaving. Mosquitos seem uncontrolled.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry that you experienced an issue in the restrooms. As soon as we were made aware of the situation, our cleaning staff took care of it. We have had significant improvement in the mosquitos in recent weeks due to drier weather and our mitigation efforts.

Very pleasant campground. Beautiful setting, staff was helpful, pancakes were delicious, and bathrooms were clean.
Jul 18, 2014
Great location, tent sites were a really good size and close to the bathrooms with great views of the river.
Jul 16, 2014
Enjoyed our stay at this very clean campground. We stayed at the tent village, something I have never seen before, and loved it! There is enough room to pitch a tent. We had our own private gazebo area with table and a counter to cook our meals. There was also an cupboard you could put a padlock on to secure your belongings under the counter We had privacy but were a part of the campground.

Great stop on our way to Mt. Rusmore. Clean facilities, great site, and the Indian tacos and pancakes were delicious!
