Tent Reviews

Aug 24, 2015
Best place I have ever pitched a tent. The grounds are well kept, sites are spacious, staff is always visible and friendly, facilities are clean and it has a dog park.

Super friendly staff. Has a pool for hot days. Trees to block some of the wind in the badlands. Would stay here again.

Really loved the fact hat you're one of the few KOA's that still has a "Kamping Corral." When you're camping with a tent, they are a real blessing. We took advantage of the guy fixing burgers etc. Nice well-kept CG.

We stayed 2 nights in a tent. Nice, shady, and quiet. The store was stocked with what we needed. Wi-fi needs upgrading. The bathrooms need updating but were clean.

The staff was friendly and helpful, facilities were clean, campground was quiet, pool was wonderful. We loved our stay! My family never stayed at a KOA before, and now we never want to stay anywhere else!

Staff was helpful and friendly. Campsite was clean, nice and functional. Restroom/shower facilities were clean. A great place to stay nearby to the park.

We loved staying here! The owners were great. The only downside are all the black insects in the shower in the morning.

Not enough trees for hammocking, but overall a very pleasant experience with nice, clean facilities and exceptionally helpful and kind staff.

Stayed one night at a tent campsite. Everything was fine and very clean and well kept except the 10,000 crickets on the bathroom floor.

Loved our stay in the badlands. Bathroom was clean, campground was nice. Only thing is I wish our campsite was by more trees to hang our hammocks but that's on us. Their sites perfect for tents, cabins and RVs. And it's really close to the badlands!

the Browns were great hosts. The Park was very pleasant and clean. this was my first experience at camping and it was great.

Only negative problem is signal for a Verizon phone is almost none existent as u sit down in a very low spot. I didn't try their WiFi though , campground is nice and a quiet get away .

This was a wonderful peaceful campsite. It was extremely quiet and we woke up to the sounds of several owls in the morning. Absolutely wonderful.

We had a lovely stay at bob and Karens KOA. The hospitality was exceptional. Everything was well laid out and the little store was a great help . The laundry served it's purpose and the units worked very well. Can not express our thanks enough to bob and Karen . Cell phone service is the only down fall but that's the area thanks again

Wonderful Kampground with great hosts.

It was really peaceful but the restrooms were a little overcrowded. Staff very polite. Would stay again.
Aug 10, 2015
Teepee was awesome. Nice facility. Very good prices. I hope the Reservation is getting a percentage of your profits/fees?
Aug 10, 2015
Very nice camp ground. Directions on how to get here were awful!!! If it wasn't for the police officer that we asked for directions we never would have found it.
Aug 10, 2015
The owners were quick to stop excess noise of other campers.
Aug 10, 2015
The park was very clean, the staff considerate and accommodating, and the setting was just what we hoped for. Great experience!
Aug 10, 2015
We've stayed at several KOAs on this trip, and this has been the best so far. The campground was well-designed to give everyone plenty of space and the facilities were extremely well-maintained.

We came in late but really enjoyed the pancakes in the morning.

Decent stay. Clean restrooms part of the day, but covered in dead bugs other parts of the day. Friendly staff.

Wonderful place to stay, and a great environment for the family. Karen and Bob are fantastic hosts who always made sure we had everything we needed.

Beautiful location. Great service.

We were welcomed warmly by the staff, they let us know when they would be around and the hours of the store and pool. Everything was clean and well maintained. They had many exciting activities, that we would have experienced if we had been at the camp ground for more than one night. We have stayed at 3 KOA campgrounds on our vacation and have nothing but good things to say!

The location is fantastic and Karen and Bob are doing a great job with the place. I made reservations and they were very helpful in getting this done. I love the way they offer some simple meals for breakfast and dinner. I was tired from riding all day and the buffalo cheeseburger was just the right thing to satisfy my hunger. I will recommend this to all my camping friends.

Easily the nicest campground by the Badlands. Lots of options (tent, tepee, cabins), and lots of amenities. I was expecting a view of the river, but there is a berm. Food was OK. I expected more lettuce and tomatoes on the Indian tacos.
Aug 04, 2015
Really great spot! Good sites, clean facilities, and lots of amenities. Nice little dog park too!
Aug 04, 2015
No river. Only plants in a bone dry riverbed.
Aug 04, 2015
I had a tent site and totally loved it. The campground was nearly full, but the atmosphere was calm and quiet. The sites are well layed out with plenty of room between sites. Very enjoyable stay.

We really enjoyed the campsite and couldn't have found a better campsite! We were impressed with all the amenities and the friendliness and willingness of the employees to help out. The only bummer was the advertised WiFi did not work in the afternoon through the night due to it being a peak season and so many people trying to connect.
Aug 03, 2015
Relatively good site considering location in Badlands area. River not suitable for swimming. Can get really warm during the day. Shady site a must. Loved the pancakes!
Aug 02, 2015
The facilities were very clean and the Browns (the owners) were very hospitable and helpful. Highly recommended for visitors to the badlands. About fifteen minutes from the park entrance.
Aug 01, 2015
The host was so friendly and accommodating with our last minute reservation when our original plans to camp elsewhere fell through! The vanload of twenty somethings that pulled in and set up camp at midnight with headlights blaring in my tent...not so great. But hey, that's camping.

We stayed one night in a tent site after a day of hiking in the Badlands. The site was a nice size and well-shaded; the bathrooms and laundry room were convenient and clean. There were cows across the road mooing loudly but otherwise it was very quiet and also did not have glaring lights (a problem at some campgrounds). If we get back to the Badlands we'd stay there again.

Surprisingly this KOA was located in an all shaded area which is a huge advantage in the beautiful, but hot badlands of South Dakota. The other campsites we drove by were all exposed without shade. Karen, who was working the front desk, was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this KOA to any of our family/friends who were in the area!
Jul 31, 2015
Overall, i dont like KOA's but i must say this is the best i have stayed at to date. Someone answered the phone after 6pm so we could book late and know there were available sites before arriving. Tipi was nice. Spacious sites, which was the best part.

Good location for going to the Badlands. Amenities are the standard for all KOAs that I have been to. Good place to stay.
