The staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our breakfast at the Chuck Wagon. We would definitely come and stay at KOA again.

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.

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.

Staff were very helpful and kind. Campsites were very small and close together. Our was almost touching our neighbors tent. This KOA had some to play and the location was great. The food and wood were quite expensive.

We had a nice campsite under the pine trees. I felt that there was little open green area to hike or play frisbee. Many of the nearby campsites were squeezed into a small area. The staff in the office weren't very pleasant either. The amenities were pretty good. Most of the other KOA campgrounds had jumping pillows for free, this campground charges a small fee.

The stay was great & the staff was friendly. The only complaint that I had was on 7/4, the staff started cleaning the restrooms earlier than they were supposed to. When I asked why, it was explained there were a bunch of new campers coming & they wanted them to look as nice as possible. But this also caused, the campers that were already there to wait in a line outside the bathroom for 15 minutes.

A little cramped but other than that it was a very nice stay. Bathroom and showers were great and very clean and very hot water. Staff great. Enjoyed our time there.

After driving 11hrs and seeing Mt. Rushmore I didn't care to supervise the three boys (all under the age of 14) in the pool area. Very stress situation! Hopefully no one drowns due to patents lack of supervision in the future!

This KOA is very rustic and the staff were friendly and welcomed us warmly. The weather was miserable, but the staff made us feel better about that too.

Great location and a great place to stay but the bathrooms are not heated and that makes showering at the end of Sept cold.
Sep 25, 2012
This was a very nice KOA and we enjoyed our stay here. The shower facilities were amazing but I suspect insufficient in number when the campground is anywhere near capacity. The operators were friendly and most accommodating...all together a very nice KOA.

Everyone was friendly, the camp grounds were clean, everything was in order, the facilities were awesome.
