Mosquitos were horrible and bathrooms were unclean. Food was great and kampground was nice and organized.


We are so sorry that you had a problem with mosquitos. That can be an issue in the outdoors during a rainy spring. We are spraying when it is safe to do so and taking other measures to mitigate mosquitos. Our cleaning staff will be made aware of your comment

The camp is a lot nicer than it was ten years ago. Nice work Steve and Marci!

Good overall. It was nice that it was quiet and dark at night. Our only issue was that the Wi-Fi was spotty.

Nice shade. Wish they would space campers out more if campground not full. Clean, we'll manicured CG. Would come again.

The nicest campgrounds owners and mgrs I've ever met! Absolutely the most beautiful, cleanest, friendliest KOA I've ever stayed at. 5 Stars!

The KOA and staff were awesome, very receptive to needs. I was in a tent. Unfortunately, none of the tent sights are close to a bathroom without being disturbed by the RVs who don't turn off their generators like they're required to do (w/electricity!). However, any disturbances by the RVs were handled very professionally and extremely quickly. I would highly recommend this KOA!

Best campground in the area. Only improvement would be more privacy between tenting spaces. Other than that, don't miss this place.

Perfect location to start out a day at the Badlands. If you're tent camping, bring an air mattress. The ground is pretty much solid rock and not comfortable without some sort of padding.

I really enjoyed staying there in a tent.It is quiet, a beautiful site with trees and so close to theBadlands.

The campground was absolutely beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. We would definitely stay here again!

Hard to find campground at night. Need more lights in front by the road. Also put lights or reflectors on the sign at the junctions 4 miles from the campground.Very difficult to find after dark.

Out in the middle of nowhere, but a very nice campground. Didn't like the sewage smell, otherwise it was great.

Staying with these folks and staff is like staying with family. They truly care about your comfort and your stay with them.The campground and facilities are always tidy and clean. I have stayed with them before and will stay again.

We had a wonderful stay, people joked about roughing it at KOA, but the Badlands KOA seemed to me more remote and secluded than the nearby campgrounds.

Staff was great. There was some road noise but not bad. Our only complaint was our tent camping neighbor who had four dogs that barked all evening. Between the dogs barking and the owners yelling at them it was kind of crappy.

It was a nice, basic KOA. I would suggest it to anyone planning to stay in the area.

The flies in the campsite were absolutely unbearable. Also, some other campers left a disgusting mess in the camper kitchen located next to us. The people working there were great and extremely friendly and helpful.

Nice location. But.....this place was completely swarming, and I mean swarming with flies. We stayed in the tent village and did enjoy the quiet and break from the flies while in our tent....But during the time out of our tent it was almost unbearable. Also, the smell of the septic system was rather close to the tent area! I would avoid this KOA.

Good clean campground very close to the Badlands. The amenities are excellent for a campground and the staff friendly. I stayed at this campground in 1995 on a family vacation, it was just like a remembered it, but even better.

The tent pads were great. Wood framed and filled with small round rocks that made a smooth surface and didn't let water collect under tent.
Aug 11, 2013
Great place to stay! It was a treat to go thru the Badlands to reach to the KOA. The pool was refreshing plus they have dinner and breakfast served if you don't feel like cooking.

nice place, good facility, clean pool and bathrooms. We wish the "pancake breakfast" would go until 10 am :(... we missed it because they stop stop accepting at 9am.

Nice quaint site with beautiful views! Would love to stay longer next time.

Camped in tent on ground. Clean, well maintained, good availability of services. A suggestion for improvement is to add reflectors to edge of road to assist in navigating dark roads.
