Meet Your Hosts
"Welcome to the Hot Springs KOA. Make us your base camp for exploring the beautiful Black Hills."
Finding themselves looking for a change in careers, John and Cathy decided to look at something they'd talked about doing for years - owning a campground. That is when they found the Hot Springs KOA. They both loved visiting the southern Black Hills and all it has to offer so they purchased the Hot Springs KOA in late 2009.
Before they purchased the campground, John worked as a civil engineer for the South Dakota Department of Transportation for 24 years. Cathy spent 17 1/2 years as the Executive Director of the Capital Area United Way as well as worked during the same time as the Arts Coordinator for the local arts council for 12 years.
"Although we enjoyed our jobs, it was finally the right time to embark on our next journey and make the move," said Cathy.
The Adlers love the beauty of their tree-covered campground and its proximity to Wind Cave National Park, Custer State Park, Mammoth Site, Evans Plunge and the Wild Horse Sanctuary. Customer service is their top priority while providing a peaceful and relaxing camping experience.
"We have done a lot of camping and we know what we liked as well as what we expect in a campground," said John. "We hope that our campground reflects what we think a good campground should be and hope that campers will like it here too."
When not busy with their campground, the Adlers can be found traveling, RVing, geocaching or participating in other outdoor activities.
The Adlers look forward to welcoming visitors to the Black Hills.
