We accidentally stopped at 2 wrong KOAs. We lucked out as this was by far the best of all! Trees, friendly, clean! Seemed like camping! Not commercialism.


Thank you for the nice comment! Your description about "camping" is exactly what we are striving for. Glad you noticed. Safe Travels. :]

front looks great back is in bad shape, high grass, construction debri unlevel sites


We apologize for the mess. This was due to a water break and not construction. Unfortunately we cannot predict when these thing will occur and must deal with them promptly. Grass cutting is subject to weather and site occupancy of which we attempt to stay on top of with minimal camper disruption.

The spaces were to tight . WiFi was really bad . Could not get but 3 cable channels .


We are sorry you were not happy. I wish you'd have let us know while you were here. The wifi is monitored and no faults have been detected. As for cable, there is no cable as it is not available to us. Not sure if this meant for Custer KOA. Safe travels.

Very friendly people. Not crazy about our site. Across from bathroom and tenters kept walking through our site. Also, not much room to sit outside.

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.

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.

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.

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
