Very accommodating staff in spite of the weather.

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!

This place was great. Everyone working there were so friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean. My kids ages 12-17 all loved it. I would recommend this place and will definitely stay there again on my next trip.

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.

Everything and everyone was great!

Everything was great except weather - a little cold! We rented a car that was recommended by them. Worked out perfectly! Staff very helpful. Would recommend to our friends.

Great campground. Friendly staff. Bathrooms were extremely clean. It was a nice place to stay, and we'd gladly go back.

A very friendly and hospitable group of people always willing to help if needed. Bathroom and shower area a plus.

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!

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.

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!

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.

We were there in early May. Cold and rainy but not bad. Rabbits galore!!

Great KOA, Great Staff, Cheep Firewood, Beautiful Star Lit Skies @ night. Extended our stay twice this trip. Beautiful Fall colors, and Lots of Wildlife. Got an awsome pic of a Mountain Sheep. Also fulfilled one of the items on my hubbys bucket list by going to see the Buffalo Roundup. But, I think they herded more people then Buffalo this year.... But still fun. The Staff was great too. Thank You

Outstanding service throughout all aspects of the Custer Kampground. Extremely friendly and always ready to help. The best assistance I have ever had getting my trailer positioned in a backup space, or any space as far as that is concerned. We stayedan extra day and then wanted to stay longer but our travel plans weren't as flexible as were needed. Restrooms: always clean and showers fantastic

We were planning on staying four days but were given a site that was very uneven and had to clear off several piles of dog poop. Disgusting.
Sep 25, 2014
Disapointing stay. An uneven site, poor lighting and dangerous dog run area with wire cattle fence enclosure. Arrived later, but office was only open until 6pm. Dog on neighbour property never stopped barking all night .
Sep 25, 2014
Wi-Fi was ambiguous, but showers and restrooms were large - great! Priced higher than most for similar services.
