The staff was very courteous and attentive. I did not like the unlevel site. And all of the hook ups were on the wrong end of my trailer. I had to pull forward and set up on a slant just to reach the electric box.


I apologize your site was not to your liking. If you had informed us we do have 30 and 50 amp cords for just such situations, which we would have gladly lent you. Thank you for staying with us and safe travels.

Our trip was interrupted by flooding on I90 and the people at Custer Campground were most helpful in getting us booked for another day and then when we went to leave the truck would not start and withing minutes of our call to the office they were there to give us a jump. They couldn't have been nicer.

People are lovely, campsite was so uneven it damaged the leveling jacks on my motor home. Others had a wheel jacked in the air. Is it too much to expect level access and a level site. The country was so green and lush, unlike the dust bowl of a campground. I hope this is seen as constructive critism.


Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. When you were escorted to you site you did not have any complaints, nor when we made contact with you later in the day. I'm not sure dust bowl fits since it rained every day you were here and this has prevented our normal spring site maintenance. Safe travels.

Everyone was so helpful, checking regularly if there was anything they could do to help us. It started the moment we arrove to unpacking our bags to Billy cooking and entertaining the kids to at breakfast to heading out on our adventures and even as we loaded up to leave. We felt welcomed and wanted and could not have asked for a better experience!!! Thank you!!!

No TV (bring your cable to stream via internet)! Friendly people & FANTASTIC restroom/shower facilities! We were there during "wet"; would like to see a little more trail/road maintenance. Lots of mud; but was rainy! :) Overall..not as fancy as Palmer Gultch; but more friendly & peaceful.
May 29, 2015
We will stay here again friendly staff and the tour we booked was great.

Very accommodating staff in spite of the weather.
May 26, 2015
In spite of bad weather we had a very enjoyable time at this KOA. And that is because of the people that run it. They are so friendly and accommodating. No wonder we have been staying at this same KOA for over 30 years.

The staff here is very friendly. The bathrooms and shower are updated and very clean, and the cabins are comfortable. Would definitely recommend!

Great hosts! Very friendly and VERY helpful. My one issue is the dog enclosure. It's not enclosed .. it is a two wire fence that would be fine if there were chain lenght to enclose it.
May 20, 2015
Everything and everyone was great!

Clean bathrooms, friendly staff, excellent location, quiet and spacious sites with picnic table. Loved the bunnies!

A very friendly and hospitable group of people always willing to help if needed. Bathroom and shower area a plus.
May 15, 2015
Thanks, we had a great stay
May 13, 2015
What a great KOA! We ended up getting a huge snow storm during our stay and despite the weather we still had a great trip thanks to the staff at Custer KOA. And everyone was so kind and concerned when I had a pretty bad fall in the store! We will definitely be returning!
May 13, 2015
While we were at this KOA we had an unexpected foot of snow. The hosts/owners went out of their ways to make sure everyone was ok. Because of the snow and road conditions they offered discounts to stay off the road as they were a mess. Most hosts are nice and you expect that at KOA, this couple went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable during the snow and during their stay.
May 12, 2015
This KOA is very conveniently located and the staff is very friendly, helpful, and are great at offering suggestions about visiting attractions in the area. My husband and I were grateful Billy suggested bringing carrots to feed the burros at Custer State Park, thank you! The bathrooms are clean and beautifully remodeled; they are seriously nicer than most motel bathrooms!
May 11, 2015
The staff was very nice and helpful. But may stay was full of rain which kinda made the campgrounds muddy. That's the only reason I didn't enjoy my stay all too much, but I'm sure with better weather, it'd be very nice. I appreciated the heaters in the bathroom, very helpful since it got pretty cold during my stay.
May 10, 2015
We were there in early May. Cold and rainy but not bad. Rabbits galore!!
May 07, 2015
-spotless bathrooms and showers! -cozy cabin, porch light and heater on for our arrival on chilly night, clean, comfortable, quiet -friendly and happy staff


Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Safe travels.
