The most uneven RV spaces I've ever stayed in. The showers were clean, the jump pillow was not. Definitely pot smokers in the evening.

Friendly and helpful staff. Decent grounds, but not top-notch. Clean bath houses. Food service on-site, but days and hours vary. This was an overnight stop for us.

Had a wonderful stay. Staff was extremely knowledgable, friendly and made us feel like we were at home. Power in the area went out for about 15 hours first night of our stay. Staff was resourceful with bathrooms and limited water, helped make guests as comfortable as possible. Staff kept the camp up to date on the outage and when power would return. We had a great stay, look fwd to next visit!!

It was a great spot quiet and close to Custer State Park and an easy drive to Mt Rushmore. It was also a great home base for the Badlands and Minuteman Missile Site. It was great in that it gave us a site that had an outdoor feeling. Hosts and staff where very helpful Laundry facility was very clean. We stayed in AS Motorhome with a tow.

Quiet, well maintained and a wonderful stopover while we visited; Crazy Horse Monument, Mount Rushmore, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave and the 1880 Train. All were within 40 minutes of the KOA Campground.

Arrived on a wet, snowy night. Staff gave us an extra heater to keep warm and went out of their way to accommodate our stay. Bathrooms are great and the best of any during our travels! Stayed at a different KOA every night for several weeks. Great place.

Very nice hosts, let us move to a quieter site. Clean restrooms. handy to Custer. SItes are gravelly and some uneven, so be prepared to level your rig.

Beautiful campground.

No cable or satellite and very spotty and weak local TV reception needs to be addressed


Cable is not available in our area. Satellite is obtainable in most site, including yours. Over the air is due to the mountains. Our numerous Wi-Fi Channels do provide streaming. Safe travels.

No sewer hookup!


You made your reservation on line and requested a water and electric site as all of our full hook ups were taken during your stay. Safe Travels

Enjoyed our stay. Staff very helpful and friendly- even loaned us a power cord! We also loved the visits from the deer and bunnies. Campground close to lots of local attractions.

The staff and owners were very friendly, even helping us park our trailer correctly. Debi was informative as to directions to the Buffalo Roundup and suggestions for dining out. The property was very neat and clean, and has many amenities, including what we thought looked very fun and interesting for the kids ... The Pillow.

Room was full of fliesdead and alive. Close to a hundred flying flies kept flying into our faces and they were the size of dimes. Other than that the accommodations were what we anticipated.


First we heard of your problem. When cleaning after your departure flies were noted but not in the numbers or sizes indicated. As we are in a forest, flies and the like are common. I wish you'd have notified us during your stay to give us a chance to address the situation. Safe travels.
