Cabin Reviews

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.

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.

Great KOA, very friendly & helpful staff! Very clean restrooms & kamping kabins! Have approximately 13 kabins Would definitely stay here again when in the area!

It was so fun to be out in nature. My kids loved the jumping pillow and the cute cabins!

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

The best thing here is the staff! Very helpful and authentically warm!

My family really enjoyed staying here. The grounds were kept clean. We loved all the bunnies. Our one mistake was not booking early enough to get all 3 nights and we stayed at the Palmer Gulch KOA and we're highly disappointed and wished we were back at the Custer KOA. Thank you!

The facilities are nice and well maintained. Everyone was friendly enough at check in. Howver, I was sold 3 bundles of fwood that was too wet to burn. They would not give a refund even for the 2 unopened bundles. In the morning they offered no unsweetend milk or creamer for the corffee. So in addition to the price of the coffee, I had to pay for a container of milk just to put some in my coffee

This was our 1st stay at a KOA and it was perfect! We were welcomed with a smile, cabin and showers were clean, and the staff was incredibly welcoming. We will stay again without a doubt!

We loved our cabin, showers and restrooms. Our breakfast was good too.
Jul 20, 2015
Very clean. Everybody was very friendly. We stayed in a Kabin and it was roomy and cozy.

Bathroom facilities in sad shape. Was there 5 days no repairs. Laundry room washer problems. They said they knew no repairs. Table pads not level made cooking difficult. Not a good value for the $$$.

My grandson loved all the extra activities you had for him. The inexpensive breakfast in the morning was also very good. The only thing that would have made my stay better is if you had bathrooms inside your cabins. It makes traveling with opposite gender children easier as you don't have to send them into public showers alone. Your staff was awesome.
Jul 18, 2015
Our delux cabin was great except some of the lights didn't work. The public bathrooms/showers were awesome and everything was really clean. We did not like that the playground was far away from all the campsites and near vehicle traffic and no pool
Jul 18, 2015
Food was to pricy.
Jul 17, 2015
love the location, just far enough away from town, but convient to anything you need, so friendly and helpful like the two bath and shower area's
Jul 17, 2015
The bathrooms were very clean and the staff very friendly. We would have liked to have had an option of a cabin with a bathroom in it but they are not available at this campground. Also our cabin did not have an air conditioner which would have been miserable if it would have been hot. The kids loved the time rabbits and jumping on the blob! Also do not use your GPS to find this Campground

Excellent stay in K7! Chuck wagon breakfasts with Bill were great. Kids enjoyed the pool and jumping pad!

Nice camp ground we stayed in a cabin it behind the pool and close to the bathrooms. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained only thing lacking was no lighting in the shower area. The pool was small but clean. The staff were friendly, and Billy the cook made a great breakfast!
Jul 15, 2015
This was a great facility near all of the major attractions in SD. The staff was very friendly and very attentive. The kids had fun on the jumping pillow, in the playground, and at the pool. Our tent site was a bit sunny, but overall very nice.

Jul 11, 2015
The stay was wonderful and the location is awesome, the only issue was in the men's restroom the Urinal wasn't working so the men's restroom didn't seem that clean. But we loved our stay.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Your campsite, cabins, and restroom/showers were perfect! The whole staff was friendly and helpful! Couldn't ask for a better location. You even helped us when we decided to stay for an extra night. We will be back at your site, along with more family members:) Thanks for helping us with our vacation memories!
Jul 06, 2015
Wonderful setting and located close to all we wanted to see. The only problem was the wet wood for campfires. Once we learned the trick to lighting it, we were fine.
Jul 05, 2015
This is an outstanding place to stay. Of all the things the girls did they loved the campground the best! Bathrooms were very nice, hot showers! Staff were very helpful - the horseback place 4 miles down called Ponderrosa is super! - the grounds were quiet. We will for sure be back!

My husband and I decided to bring our 16 yr. old grandson and our twin 10 yr old grand-daughters out to Mount Rushmore and in the past when our children were small we camped at the Custer KOA (20 some years ago)and we had a great time then. This time was just or even better than 20yrs ago. The staff made our stay fantastic. Thank you all for the great job that you do.

Friendly customer service. Love that the firewood gets delivered to your spot. They even came and helped us get a fire started one night.
Jul 02, 2015
Great location, very restful, lots of trees right in the hills and close to parks lakes and caves. The cabin was a great place to stay, comfortable at night and very much appreciated during the Gail storm. Kids loved to bouncing pillow and pool. We had the pool to ourselves several times and met great families from all over. Quiet, clean convenient

We stayed in a cabin and it was very nice! We thought it was a bit expensive, but we know that this is a very popular area. We had a good stay.
