We've stayed at the KOA in Hot Springs, SD for several years while attending the annual Sturgis rally. John and Cathy are very welcoming and the accomodations are excellent. Charles Littrell

Very nice KOA. Lots of Trees, a little tight. Good stop to get to many areas South of the Black Hills.

The staff were very friendly, informative and organized. The facility was clean and welcoming. Had a great stay and would recommend others staying there as well.

There aren't nicer camp hosts to be found than John and Cathy. They bend over backwards to accommodate their guests. John's ability to make things work for his campers is amazing. He responds quickly, always has a smile on his face and treats you like he would like to be treated. If I'm ever in need of camping facilities in the Hot Springs, Sd area again, this KOA will be at the top of my list!

The location was perfect for our vacation in the Black Hills. The site was private and beautiful, located close enough to the facilities and well maintained. Thank you!

Old/ unmaintained playground, extremely poor quality mini golf, the owners seemed very unfriendly. There was no planned activities for children. All other KOA camp grounds we have stayed in have had activities of some sort. The best part of staying here was the pancake breakfast-and the cook that morning- she was entertaining! We would never stay there again nor recommend to anyone with children!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. Our free mini golf is only a yr old. Sorry it wasn't challenging enough for you. 98% of the folks who stay with us spend their days touring the area & when they get back in evening jump into our large pool to relax - hence the reason no activities.

Thank you giving us the opportunity to rate your KOA! All we can say is "Exceptional! John worked so hard to fit us in when they were really packed in with folks attending the Sturgis Rally. Superior service, superior people. This is a place we would highly recommend and if we ever get back here we most definitely stay. Thanks guys! Mike & Becky Eggen, Phoenix, AZ

The staff were not friendly. The bathroom was not well kept. There was always one or two stalls without toilet paper. And one stall did not lock.

Nice campground, easy to find and close to the black hills.

Excellent campground. Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area. Great setup for all types of Campers, with & without children.

Nice approach on all way. Clean, small and quiet camp.

Our stop overnight on the way to Mt Rushmore. Nice, clean, shaded KOA. Free mini golf which our little one loved. Clean pool with plenty of chairs and shade. We enjoyed the all you can eat pancakes for a great price. This KOA is on a main road but sits down a small hill/slope. We didn't hear any traffic noise because of the slope. We will stay here again if in the area.

The sites were very tight and not very many trees, noisy from the highway traffic. However the staff were gracious and kind and they have a great breakfast.
Jul 29, 2015
As always John and Cathie were very accommodating. We feel like we are family:-)

It was good but your queen size bed feels like I was laying on the floor. The door frame to enter the cabin was so warped it was hard to open the door to get into and out of the cabin. Also the door for the bathroom was also warped so it was very hard to shut the sliding door because it kept scraping the framework. Other than those 3 problems it was a nice cabin and campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We were sorry about the doors. Had you stopped in the office we would have taken a look at them. Unfortunately after you left we saw the issues & are getting them fixed. They weren't warped as noted but it appears someone tried to force the doors breaking the door frames

The campground was very clean and The people in the office were very friendly and helpful. However 1 worker out in campground was not nice or helpful. Still recommend this campground as fun for the whole family!

Very nice camp and even better staff. Pool was great, and showers and bathrooms we spotless. We had a great stay.

John and Cathy are fantastic hosts. Wonderful experience.

We absolutely loved our stay as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary! They were even able to let us stay 2 extra days before they had other reservations coming in. They also gave us some local advice when asked for a great place to visit that wasn't going to be crazy busy, as Sturgis was coming on the tail end of our last 2 days here and 2 days in Custer before heading home.
Jul 27, 2015
Great Owners and staff!
Jul 27, 2015
This campground many trees and was quiet even though the highway is close providing easy access. The kids thought the pool a bit cool but good for a quick dip on a hot day. Pancake breakfast was a hit with kids and grandparents. The location is really a quick drive from anyplace in the Black Hills and surrounding area.

Facilities are all nice and updated. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool and bathrooms were clean. We used a tent site which was nice. The site we were at even felt somewhat secluded. 2 Problems to mention: Too many flies and the only bathroom was a bit of a hike from our tent.
Jul 27, 2015
Campground was clean but not accommodating to our 32' trailer. We signed up for a pull through to not unhook for the night. Noted size, and explained at desk. Got a site that was too short even though there was one that was flat and longer beside us.
Jul 27, 2015
this was our first ever stay at a KOA and the Hot Springs location was great. we had a tent site and they made sure we were close to the bathrooms and had plenty of shade. the thunderstorm missed us and the stay was perfect.
Jul 27, 2015
We were greeted with a smile by Rose when we arrived. During the time we were on site, we met each of the staff, Lloyd, Terry and Tara, Marcy and Eric and found each of them to be extremely friendly and helpful. The ability to attract such excellent help is one reason John and Cathy are such great hosts. We look forward to our next trip to this KOA.

The accommodations were great. Showers and campground were really kept up and very neat. However, quiet hours need to be enforced so people can get a good night sleep. Overall, this was a good place to stay.
Jul 26, 2015
Great hosts, breakfast was an added benefit for us since we were on a motorcycle with a tent and no room for food! All the workers were extremely nice and helpful!
Jul 25, 2015
Great location, and the staff all were really great. If I come back to the Black Hills for a visit, We'll stay at Hot Springs KOA for sure.
Jul 25, 2015
Great place owners and staff are very helpful and will try to help you any way they can
Jul 25, 2015
I was very impressed with our cabin condition! I have stayed in some not so nice ones, this one is GREAT!!
Jul 25, 2015
This is a super campground. Owners went above and beyond to make our stay possible. Many kudos to John and staff.
Jul 25, 2015
The only site available when we made our reservations was very tilted. Other wisei t was OK.
Jul 24, 2015
Nice place to base day trips out of. Kids loved the pool and miniature golf. Would have been nice to have a screen door on the cabins to help with air flow/bugs.
Jul 24, 2015
It was ok
Jul 22, 2015
We stayed 3 nites at Hot Springs Koa. It was right in the center of the things we wanted to do. The facilities were very clean. John & Cathy the owners were very nice. Very hard workers . John was always out & about. Cathy was always working in the store. Always making sure the campers had everything they needed. Great people!!
Jul 22, 2015
