Excellent place to stay while visiting the Badlands. Minor issue with black flies but acceptable with a good breeze.

We liked the food and we like the people that work there very much. Our only small complaint is that the pool had debris in it. Other than that, we saw at the site we tent camping was perfect in every way.

This particular camp site is a great place to stay and I would definitely stay again.The one downside to all these koa campsites is the wifiIve stayed at four in the last three weeks and they all suffer from the lack of wifi especially in the tented areas .For me personally I needed to stay in touch with family members and have access to online banking and so forth and this wasn't possible

Great experience. This was the first time my family has ever stayed at a KOA. Great experience. Will look into staying at other KOAs in the future. Clean campground, friendly staff.

I had a very unpleasant experience while staying here. I returned to my site from getting dinner only to find a large van parked right in front of my tent where I was supposed to park, with the lights on and a man passed out inside the van. There were several other people in the site next to me, and at 6am they were incredibly loud.

Overcome by "houseflies" due to sewage lagoon, should not have tent sites near this - smelled septic odor entire tome, staff not overly friendly, cold showers two nights in a row. Not on par with other KOAs we've stayed at.

Bathrooms nice and clean. Didn't like the wooden fences separating us in the wagon wheel area (I think that's what it was called)so would request a different spot next time.

This was our first experience at a KOA and it was amazing!! Great service, amazing location, and great staff truly made our trip! Thank you for your outstanding service!

stayed in tipi - had a very nice night; bathrooms a little far for an older couple with knee problems but worth the distance since the grandkids loved the tipi; nice location; appeared well-maintained; employees helpful & courteous

Easy after-hours check in. Basic tent camping campsites were clean and well maintained. They had a manicured area for the tent, no roots or rocks to contend with. Facilities were clean. Overall, great stay. Highly recommend KOA.

Beautiful spot, extremely well managed, near National Park.

Great stay! We arrived late at night and check in was a breeze, amenities were clean, and the people were friendly. Would definitely recommend

love the amenities: pool, clean restrooms, camp sink. However, the sites are so close to one another. Firewood is only $6 and the $1 fire starters are excellent. They were very flexible with us and changed our original cabin reservation to a tent, and then when severe weather was moving in, they let us change our last night to a cabin. Nice location to the Badlands.

I stayed at a deluxe tent site and it was fantastic. It had a shaded area complete with electric and a sink that actually had hot water! Never had hot water at my tent site before. I arrived for a late check in and the staff was courteous enough to leave a camp site map with the directions drawn on the map to my site. it made things so much easier in the dark.

Great location. Clean facilities, excellent food. We really enjoyed our stay.

Bob and Karen were great, the entirety of the staff was very helpful. It was my first time staying at a KOA, and it definitely won't be my last time. Thank you guys very much.

This was a fine place to stay.

Campground personnel were friendly and courteous. It was nicely located to Badlands NP, Minuteman Missile NM and Wall. The deluxe was perfect with the shelter over electrical outlets, water basin and picnic table. We don't know if we'll ever make it back to South Dakota but this KOA will always be an option.

The showers are cold, you are way too close to your neighbors at your site. I could not stand the awful smell of dead fish. The only positive thing I could say is the staff, are very friendly.
Jul 11, 2016
The deluxe campsite on its own was very nice. However had I known it was configured in a circle with close neighbors I would have chosen some other site. The sink and fence were great, but it was in a circle RIGHT next to two neighbors! The campground in general was very nice.
Jul 11, 2016
It was a very nice campground. The staff was very nice and welcoming. Thanks for a great stay!
Jul 11, 2016
Perfect - will stay there again when we head to the Badlands!

My husband and I are not expert campers but this first time using a koa made us firm believers that koa is the way to go.the campground was very clean orerly and a pleasant stay. All facilities were close and many conveniencis that we would have at home was here at this campground. We would stay again if in the area. Friendly check in just like family.

Hard to find anything negative about our stay. The campground was well maintained and the hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this campground to friends.

We stayed in the TeePee's and had a great time. Kids loved it. The beds were not so good in the Tee Pee but we moved it aside and used our own.

I had a nice stay. Rest rooms were fairly clean. One of the soap dispensers was out of soap. Laundry room was very clean. Staff was real nice.

Campsites were very spacious and appealing- staff was great and friendly, beautiful campground right next to the badlands! Had no expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. Will definitely stay here again!

There was a lot of room to tent. The ground was rather hard to get stakes into, but the ground was flat and the facilities were excellent
