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!

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.

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.

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.

We enjoyed our stay with you:) Your staff is friendly and helpful (especially Mark and Billy.) We also love your rabbits!! On the down side, the plumbing in the bathrooms seemed to be an issue (especially the men's toilets) and the pool could stand to be cleaned. We loved the jumping pillow and the fact that your store is very affordable compared to other KOAs we have been to. Very nice!!!

This thing with the wild rabbits running around is very odd! They were living under the kamper kabins! They are everywhere! The owners encourage it, I think. Rabbits are cute from a distance, but they carry germs and diseases and are not cuddly little playthings. We found it unsanitary and would not stay at this KOA again for that reason. Very strange.

Enjoyed our stay. Campground is clean, good location, friendly staff. Will stay here again if in the area.

Fantastic service. First time I had firewood and Ice offered to be delivered to campsite. Would have been perfect except showers by the office had low water pressure or did not work at all.

We had a wonderful time. The staff made us feel at home. We hated to leave and would definitely stay there again! Best possible experience ever!

Everyone was so helpful, checking regularly if there was anything they could do to help us. It started the moment we arrove to unpacking our bags to Billy cooking and entertaining the kids to at breakfast to heading out on our adventures and even as we loaded up to leave. We felt welcomed and wanted and could not have asked for a better experience!!! Thank you!!!

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!

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!

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!
