Tent Reviews

The site was ok. We did like that it was so close to the Badlands. If you decide to camp on the river, realize the river is not big and you can't even see it from the campsite. Lots of bugs in the pool. Unlike other KOAs, mini golf is not free here.

Had a great time! Our site was nice, pool and bathrooms clean. The whole Kampground was well cared for. We would stay with you again!

NIce stay, plenty spacious site. Only negative is that the drinking water was pretty bad though!

It was clean and well maintained. Camping areas were nicely spaced. We checked in around 8:45 PM. The staff member that checked us in was short with us and made us clearly aware she was done for the day and they were closing. Big difference from the warm, helpful welcome we received at our last KOA, the night before, in Cody, WY.

Our family get together at the KOA was wonderful. The location next to the Badlands made visiting the park very easy. The camp grounds were clean, but it was difficult to find a trash can near our camp site. Overall this campground was comfortable and enjoyable.

Overall, a great stay! One recommendation would be for ceiling fans in the restrooms.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and the facilities and camp sites were clean with plenty of shade. We would definitely stay here on a future trip to the SD badlands.

Past owners let us shoot bows at targets. New owners are anti hunters.

We showed just prior to a rain storm and could not get a fire started for dinner. Good thing they had indian tacos for dinner and was able to eat under a metal shelter. This was great as it was our first night camping for our week vacation.... rest went well after due to weather but great to have KOA available previously.

We had a wonderful time! It was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The only frustrating thing was that we did not have a BBQ grill at our site and had to buy a grill to put over the put which made it difficult to cook. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Nice campsite, clean

It was nice...woken up early by dog barking...not thrilled with that. You should separate pet owners from not non pet visitors.

Loved the site. Very quite, shaded and spread out. Great dog park.

Nice playground. Friendly staff.

We go back to the Badlands/White River KOA every year, because we've had great experiences there every single time we've gone. The staff is friendly and helpful. The campground is kept up very well, both the grounds and the facilities. There are lots of things for the kids to do. The meals from the Kookhouse are excellent, and a great value. We'll be back again.

This campground is one our favorites. It is so peaceful and relaxing; away from the hustle and bustle. The staff members are extremely helpful and friendly. My wife and I make it a point to stay at this campground every time we pass the Badlands.

Our campsite backed up to the White River and was nice and shady. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and the putt-putt golf course was great! Sites were roomy, bathrooms were clean, and the showers were hot!

What a friendly staff, the bathrooms were clean and the tent city site was terrific for my needs. I didn't get a chance to check out the Indian Tacos, but next time through, I'll have to give them a try.

KOA camping doesn't really feel like camping. I like the amenities, but the atmosphere is more like a mobile home parking area. We were tent camping and had trailers and campers all around us. Some better remote sites would be benifitial.


Thank you for your feedback. We do have a number of more primitive tent sites that are along the river and away from RV sites for guests who prefer fewer amenities.

The family that operates this campground was warm, gracious and extended themselves in so many helpful ways. In an impersonal business world, the people that operate the Badlands/White River KOA kindly treat their guests like family.

My wife and I hoped to stay in the "Tent City". But, it was closed for the season when we arrived. Regardless, the campground and all of its facilities were well maintained, clean and the management attentive and friendly. We'll recommend this campground to everyone we know who camps and plans to visit the South Dakota Badlands!

This KOA is the Best, always! Great People, good rates and a pleasure to stay there!

The owners told us the site we were given was not the best... it was large and a good site! The kids enjoyed the pool. The campsite is perfect on the White River and to the Badlands!

We stayed in Tent Village and it was perfect!

We only stayed one night and it was not very busy but we enjoyed it a lot. We hope to do it again next year.

Good location, but was more expensive than other KOAs I've stayed at. Good directions and reassurance signs on nearby highways, it was easy to find even in the dark. Internet did not work!

This campground was fantastic! The pool area was clean and fun, the shower area was clean and well taken care of and the staff was very accommodating and fun. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area!
