Campground was clean and the hosts and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our kids loved the jumping pillow!

The staff and camp did their best to deal with a terrible storm that came through right before we arrived, which took out some tents and the electricity...other than that there were no issues.

Bathrooms extremely clean. Was impressed with the modern look. Disappointed with having no electricity on our last nite. Wish the campground had a secondary lite source for those that stayed in the cabins ex: flashlights etc.

This is a wonderful campground located close enough to all South Dakota has to offer, but without compromising on a true camping experience. It was clean, fun, and comfortable.

Amazingly friendly staff from the front desk to the maintenance staff! Cabin and showers were clean and updated! Campground very quiet and relaxed which is what is needed after a day of fun in the Black Hills.

Super clean restroom & showers. Friendly, helpful people. Clean cabin. The entire campground was clean.. The experience was EXCELLENT. We will see you again next year. Thank you for a pleasant stay. I never realized a camping cabin could be so much fun! Wish I could give more stars.

The staff is friendly, the bathrooms are so nice & clean. With the bathrooms being so close to the road, it's nice to feel safe with a locking key code bathroom door. It's also nice to come into a cabin & not have to clean all the spiderwebs out before staying in it. Will be back again.

It was a nice campground with rabbits and deer. Could use a larger waste basket. Not fond of bathroom codes. When we needed ice it was unavailable at store. The cabin could use more hooks.

The staff was fantastic, the bathrooms were spotless, and my kids had a blast seeing the deer walk through the campground every evening. We will be back for sure. Thank you!

Very nice campground! We loved watching the deer and bunnies. The staff was helpful and the campground is clean and quiet. Large dog park and playground. Restrooms are very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our stay in a camping cabin and look forward to staying there again!

My husband and i had 2 toddlers and a baby, stayed in a cabin 1 night and they made us move to a 2 bedroom because we had 5 people. There was a queen bed and two twin beds, and the baby did not use a bed. I did not understand what the issue was. The manager was pretty unhelpful, but the employees were friendly.


On line you stated 2 adults and 2 children. You also were not truthful at check in. Fire regulations do not base occupancy on the size of a person. In addition, although it is clearly posted that cooking is not allowed in cabins, you persisted to not adhere to posted rules.

The campground was adequate, but all special services shut down for the season. No breakfasts, the pool was closed... With the reduction in services there was no reduction in the rates.


Sorry you were not happy. All pools in this area close Labor Day. As for the breakfast, this is not a free amenity, not included in the daily site charge. Safe Travels.

We loved the cabin, the bathrooms were the best we have ever seen at a campground and the staff was friendly and helpful :)

The staff were absolutely amazing. At check in he took the time for us to share our vacation plans and gave us recommendations of things to look for and to do that helped make our vacation great! The campground and bathrooms were clean.

Love it all except some places were not willing to let 10 people stay in one spot our Rv sleeps 10 comfortably so. Didn't understand the problem

Before we got to the Custer KOA, my husband said "ugh, not another KOA". Afterwards, he said it was his favorite place to stay on our trip. The giant bouncy pillow is a huge hit. Also friendly staff and excellent bathrooms and the kids loved that the pool was heated. Thanks so much!
