Tent Reviews

May 11, 2015
The staff was very nice and helpful. But may stay was full of rain which kinda made the campgrounds muddy. That's the only reason I didn't enjoy my stay all too much, but I'm sure with better weather, it'd be very nice. I appreciated the heaters in the bathroom, very helpful since it got pretty cold during my stay.

Campsites for tents are basically all on a rocky hill. Difficult to stake your tent and you will probably be sleeping with some difficulty due to unlevel sites. Staff very friendly. Odd view of someone's house directly near campsites- kind of strange. Good bathrooms.

Camp very close to Custer city. Rare possibility to have facilities of city and camp lodge. Excellent Wi-Fi(in tent!!!). Nice breakfast (additional amenity, I didn't waste my time to make meal)

Everyone on staff was super friendly! We had a great time, and my son had a blast on the jumping pillow :-D

This is a fabulous KOA. It is outside Custer. It is near Jewel Cave, Wind Cave, Mount Rushmore and in the heart of black hills.

The only nice thing to say about this place is the bathrooms were clean and the rabbits are cool. The female staff are rude and snotty,the sites were sloped and they did nothing about noise control night or day. They hike up prices for bike week and if you're not satisfied and leave you won't get a refund. I am a rewards member and have stayed at KOA sites all over the US,this was the worst!

The people who manage this KOA only care about their guests as long as they are taking money from them. A bad storm came thru the campground one evening when I was away and blew my tent completely off the pad. I had to stay at a motel that night as I could not put it up in the dark. No one offered to help me put it back up the next day, and refused to refund my money for that night. they dont care

All the staff were absolutely fantastic! Our tent site was great and so was the breakfast! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!!!

Hosts were really friendly and helpful but the site is on a busy road and in a tent it is not really restful.

We had a wonderful visit and enjoyed the pool and bouncing pillow. We appreciated the clean bathrooms and the laundry facilities too! Thank you so much for accommodating our family.

Clean and well organized. Tent site a adequate, fire pit needs a grate so you can cook. Most had them but not our site. Overall good camp.

The bathrooms were awesome. Hot showers. Friendly, very very kid friendly. We did not have any kids with us, but saw them having a blast on the jump pillow, or in the pool, or playing on the swings. Our stay was great. Will be back on our next trip threw the area.

The staff was very friendly. The facilities were well maintained, clean and stocked.

The manager was great but the female employee was not very friendly. Plus we had to buy their firewood which was not very good. It smoked excessively and wouldn't stay lit.

The kids really enjoyed the bouncing pillow, pool, and playground. The chuckwagon was good as well. The only downfall was that our site was in ther middle and did not have a lot of room. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

Our family set up a tent for 3 nights at this particular KOA and had a great time. My 10 and 13 year old LOVED the jumping pillow and the pool was clean and set at a comfortable temperature. The fire wood was a bit expensive (3 bundles for $11) as was the soda in the machines. For the overall price, it was a great value. Thank you!

ALL the staff very friendly and accommodating which makes a huge difference. Unlike many other campgrounds where customers seem to be an interruption to the work day, these folks enjoy talking with people and were genuinely interested in our satisfaction with the site and amenities. I highly recommend.

It was a nice place.

Terrible two nights. We tented in Site 8. It's right next to the Kamping Kabins and apparently the 2nd and 3rd Kabins from the left behind the pool decided to stay up and drink and talk very loudly. Tent sites should be away from lights and non-tenters. Enforce quiet hours after 10pm. I know this is a chance encounter, but all it takes is once. I'll look elsewhere next time.
