Wonderfully clean and well kept showers and toilets. Swimming pool is in dire need of shade/awning.

This campground was the best! Very clean bathrooms and showers. My kids loved the jump pad and pool. What a great place! This was our 1st time camping at a KOA and we would definitely come again.

Our stay was really nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The only wish would be more shaded areas for tents.

Everything was great. Even the bathrooms and shower houses were super clean. No complaints. The guy driving around the campground in a golf cart acted like he hated his job (KOA police?), he was not very nice or friendly, but all the other staff was very hospitable. Thank you for the great stay.


Thanks for the great comments. We take pride in our hospitality. As for the employee you mentioned, rest assured I will deal with the matter immediately. Again, thank you. Safe travels.

We were doing a "winging it" vacation so could only get a site for one night, but we have camped here before and wanted to again. Very friendly staff.

Staff are friendly. Roy is a fountain of information and our self guided tours were I. direct response to his guidance. Everyone was helpful even though we kept adding days to our stay. Delightful community. Restrooms and laundry room very clean.

Had a great time! We did get rained out one night from our tent and had to stay in a hotel for the night. I had just mentioned about getting rained out to the staff as we checked out to head home and they refunded us for that night. Vary nice of them to do that.

Fantastic staff!!! We felt so welcome at this KOA! We felt like we where home. The staff was simply amazing to us! We have been to other KOA's and have never felt so welcome. The bathrooms where extremely clean. Hot water, always. We didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back. We highly recommend this KOA to everyone coming to Mount Rushmore/Custer.

Lovely place. wonderful employees, especially want to give a shout out to Darrel and Sharon!!

This KOA is nicely run. They are very pleasant and helpful. It's very peaceful even though it sits on hwy 16. It's not a heavily used road. Lots of pines, clean, and bunnies that aren't shy around people moving around. They aren't begging, just meandering the grounds. The bathrooms at the main building are super nice! You feel like you are staying at a nice hotel!

Nice and quiet. Clean restrooms and showers. Super friendly staff gave us a good-sized space for our large family tent. Gave an active duty military discount. Thanks!

The people in the ten house has a noisy dog.

Sites extremely close together. No privacy. Very little grass or trees. Good shower facility. Staff seemed nice. Wish I chose a cabin instead of a tent site

This was the first time I tent camped and the first time at a KOA! It was fabulous and I had a great time! KOA employee Roy from Louisiana was especially wonderful and caring!
