Great place. Very quiet and friendly people. Clean bathrooms and showers. Lots of hot water. I like the raised pads for the tents.

My wife, son and I just got back from a three night stay at KOA Custer and thoroughly enjoyed it! Great campground with lots to do. My son loved the jump pillow and we had a great time swimming and playing tether-ball. Close to Custer with shopping and some restaurant options. Also convenient to the Reptile Garden, Bear Country U.S.A and Mt. Rushmore. Would definitely recommend!

Great location with great people.

Very small sites. Not what I would expect with the KOA label.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you were not happy with you site. Our park is older and improvements are being made on a continuous basis. Unfortunately, not all sites have been addressed at this point but work continues. Safe travels. Jim

Friendly and helpful staff. The spaces are a bit small for larger RVs. Would have liked to stay longer. But, busy time a Stugis.

Great location. Staff was extra friendly and helpful. They really aimed to please.

Most of the staff was friendly however, there are some that need to be trained more on how to see if there is availability. It caused a lot of irritation, until Debby stepped in and found that indeed there was room for one more night. No children's activities while we were there that I know of. The campsites were clean and well maintained.

Wifi was not as good as we expected. The pool sides were scummy! However, the water looked clean. The girls loved the bounce pillow and the playground.

The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Loved the location! Camp sites were very close together but it worked out well. The staff was all very nice and accommodating. Very happy with our stay!

I stayed here when I selected the wrong campground and meant to reserve another KOA. It made no difference because we had such a nice time here. The office was nice and the staff was very friendly. The campground was clean and quiet and the kids had a great time with the play equipment and "pillow" along with the game room. Very enjoyable campground.

Bathrooms nice though not a lot of stalls or showers for busy times

Loved it... convenient for Custer State Park, Rushmore, Rapid City.

Extremely well ran KOA with pleasant and helpful people at the front desk. They were quick to help, thorough and made us feel welcome. The bathrooms were well maintained and the campsite was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Excellent!!

People were great a very well run KOA
Jul 29, 2015
1st time staying at a KOA. We had such a great time. Our cabin was clean and quite at night. Looking forward to coming back again soon!

Not a quiet place for camping cabins since they were located right on the highway into town. When I gotta poop, I hate to have to find someone who knows the key code for the bathroom.
Jul 28, 2015
We love to camp, but opted to stay in a 2-bedroom cabin which worked out perfectly. We were able to have our s'mores and enjoy the other amenities offered - kids loved the jumping pillow, playground & pool.
Jul 28, 2015
Site too narrow and crowded. Fire ring butted against timbers.Awning extended into neighbor's site.Cost the same as large, grassy, sites.Site so off level could barely level unit.Member discount only given on 1of 2 reservations I had made. Won't renew membership.
Jul 28, 2015
Nice park and great people but the sites were very close together and they did not have cable tv. If you want a relatively level site, make sure you request it when you make your reservation.
Jul 28, 2015
Wonderful, we can't wait to come back. We were especially pleased with the employees that were running around on the golf carts, they were very friendly and helpful, and made the stay that much better. Thank you

Great KOA, very friendly & helpful staff! Very clean restrooms & kamping kabins! Have approximately 13 kabins Would definitely stay here again when in the area!
Jul 28, 2015
It was so fun to be out in nature. My kids loved the jumping pillow and the cute cabins!
Jul 27, 2015
We stayed in the Kamping Kabin which was very nice for us except that we would have liked to have had a flatter spot to pull up to the cabin. It was uphill on the gravel road; the tricky part was to pull out and DOWN the hill, making a quick right hand turn on the gravel. Also, the night we arrived, some adolescent boys trashed the mens room so badly my husband would not use the showers.

We had an excellent time at this Koa. The facilities were always impeccably clean and beautiful. We enjoyed using the pool and the breakfast chuck wagon was great. This was a very quite campground during our stay. Highly recommended
Jul 27, 2015
The best thing here is the staff! Very helpful and authentically warm!
Jul 27, 2015
Very nice campground and centrally located to all that The Black Hills has to offer. The site was fine but not quite the wooded and semi-secluded site we saw offered online. Very friendly staff, nice pool, & a great jumping pillow for everyone's enjoyment.
Jul 27, 2015
Is what it is. The staff are very friendly and the facilities are kept clean. Fun for the kids. The problem is being packed in like cattle. Not my idea of camping
Jul 27, 2015
Great campground. Nice people! Love KOA

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were great for the kids when we were there and it was an excellent launching point for the sites nearby.
Jul 26, 2015
The campground itself was great. The road (16) was very noisy. Not the best for a "peace and quiet" camping trip. But overall, it was good.
Jul 26, 2015
Allen was awesome making Sure we had a great time
Jul 26, 2015
Stay was OK -- site a bit tight front to back for even my little 23 ft trailer
Jul 25, 2015
Ok. I think the only thing we didn't like is that the tent area was on a hard surface. Level, but hard. We were able to be upgraded to a site with an electrical hookup; being able to charge our cell phones was nice. Staff was very nice.

We had a great time! Great large site #50 (which actually includes #49 as there's electrical post there). Very helpful friendly staff! Especially Alan -he went over & above to make our stay perfect.
Jul 25, 2015
Friendly staff, the facility was very clean. Good location.
Jul 25, 2015
Staff was very friendly and helpful! Would stay here again!
Jul 25, 2015
When we checked in we were told we had an excellent tent site. I wish we had gone back and asked for a refund: site was either gravel covered, under the firepit, or sloping. My family and I rolled downhill all night. We had no hook ups, I wish we had stayed at Wind Cave and saved the extra money.
Jul 24, 2015
The staff was super friendly and helpful. The RV sites were very tight and the pool looked like it needed to be power washed.
