automatic air freshener in the cabin went off every 30 min. had to open windows and turn fan on until we figured out how to turn it off. clean and good location.

Beautiful area with very friendly staff. We just stayed one night but we enjoyed it. Only bad thing was the price, very high and no discount for veterans or seniors.

We had originally intended to stay 2 nights, however with the snow storm in the area we had to extend our stay to wait out the storm. During our stay there was a power outage. the owners went out of their way to make sure we had power in providing a generator. Nothing was too much trouble to ensure that we were ok. Wonderful people, lovely spot, well run. Laurie & Yvon Savoie Vancouver Island

Nice relaxing stay. Had wild turkeys by our camper. Staff were friendly. This was our 3rd stay at Hot Springs KOA and will always come back.

It was good and were happy there.

Original site was too small with a very sharp turn even though I have booked the same size at other campgrounds. A leaning tree took out our awning and we were unable to see this because of the sharp turn. The Host was very nice and did give us another site.

A very clean park with lots of room to maneuver the rig. Pine trees and grass. Clean laundry and friendly helpful managers.

Cathy & John went beyond the call of duty to help us. The campground is extremely well maintained and staying here was very pleasurable.

This was a very clean and organized campground and the owners were great hosts. Due to it being somewhat outdated,I would not recommend it for families with kids who are looking for a fun park or activity center.


Thank you for the kind comments. While we do not offer a fun park/activity center where one would have to pay to play, we do offer mini golf, a rec room with games, basketball/volleyball/soccer, tetherball, playground & pool in the summer all of which are free for guests to participate.

John and Cathy were great hosts. They helped us with suggestions for places to see in the area. The pizza they cooked for us was a nice meal when we didn't want to cook or go out. The camp was neat and the showers were clean. We had a great stay.

Very friendly hosts. Clean restrooms.

The hosts at the campground were wonderful. The campground itself was very clean and peaceful and there was lots of shade. Also it's location was close to all of the local attractions such as Mt. Rushmore, Jewel Cave, Wind Cave, Custer State Park, the Mammoth dig site and Big Thunder Diamond Mine. My wife and I loved it and stayed 3 nights as part of our cross country trip!

John and Cathy are amazing KOA hosts. I had the pleasure to chatting at length with John. He had valuable and spot-on information for all of my questions and concerns. Cathy was also a great source of information. Our stay was more fun thanks to their information and great personalities. It worked great as a place to stay and still see the various attractions in and around Mt. Rushmore.

This was an average place. People were friendly, but it was very noisy and very little shade.

John & Cathy were very personable and very willing to please us. The restroom/showers were always clean & tidy. The pool was very refreshing after a day of sightseeing.

First thing when we got there and set up, we couldn't connect the water since the part was the wrong one. This is a new camper and our first time out with it. John had the right part and helped set it up. It was very pleasant and relaxing and we can't wait to come back. Thank you very much.

The most important thing about a campground is the bathroom. This was the cleanest bathroom out of all the koa kampgrounds i've stayed in. The people that ran it John and Cathy were very nice and they were there when we needed anything. We will go back.....
