Campground Reviews

Jul 09, 2013
The staff at the KOA were very friendly and accommodating. All parts of the camp were extremely clean and well maintained. They have a nice sized pool and a small playground area for kids (and adults.) They serve a delicious pancake breakfast in the pavilion however I believe you can order up other breakfast items also. We stayed in the mini cabins which were very comfortable, clean and had AC!

A nice site in a handy location. Pool and mini golf were a hit with my kids.

Super site. Great natural privacy barriers around the tent sites

First, the toilets would not flush. Each time we went to the restroom at least one toilet would not flush or was backed up. Next, we know you have quiet time rule, and this was not enforced. Our neighbors were up with their campfire until 3:30am talking and laughing so loudly the kept waking us up, NOT NICE!

Overall great KOA with a very personable staff. The morning pancakes are very good and I would highly recommend them. My son enjoyed the pool and gameroom. The mini golf course could use some TLC, but everything else was well-maintained.

Nice cabin. The lock malfunctioned and they came and took care of it right away.

the mini golf course needs work.

Everything went well except there were a few times when there was an overwhelming smell of feces in the air. There were also to many flies at this KOA we were constantly swatting flies.

Attentive and friendly owners keep the park very clean. All gravel pads and lots though with little grass and fairly tight. Very nice clean pool for kids. Playground and mini gold could use some updates but kids had fun there. Very clean and nice restrooms and showers. Overall nice place!

Very woodsy park, friendly staff. Breakfast available every morning was an unexpected treat, if you wanted it. Close to area attractions.

This KOA is not bad. The only problem is the mini golf. Please fix it or tear it down.

Thank you for your feedback. Campers checking in were told that the mini golf was not the best & that snow storms this spring put some things on the back burner. We felt that a more immediate need was shingling our 10 cabins over the mini-golf. The mini-golf is scheduled for an overhaul this fall.

Very well kept. Many activities for kids. Home cooked breakfast available.

Lots of variety on this site. Could use some more restaurants nearby, but the pizza offered was great, and real tasty - a great thing to halve for weary travelers coming in fairly late and hungry!

Good place for an overnight. Kabins were very pricey, there are cheaper motels in the town. Pool was nice, but not heated, was a little on the cold side.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you were not pleased with your experience. Our cabin prices are more than fair and are in line with motel room prices in the area. The advertised prices seen at the motels are for single occupancy & limited availability. The pool is heated and is normally around 80 degrees.

The miniature golf course was a little rough, but it was very nice amenities. The bathrooms were way better than most KOA's I've stayed at in the last year. The staff were extremely nice and helpful! Unfortunately, it's a very small town that's not that close to stuff, so that made it harder. But, absolutely loved the site.

Personable owners, wonderful ambiance, the idea of 2-person Kamping Kabin could work in other KOA's. We'll be back!!

great place to stay.

Good facility, great staff, nice pool. Only down side was the gravel/dirt lots and un-level spaces. Liked the park, just not crazy about the area.

Thank you for your feedback. The natural setting to the campground does not lend itself to completely level terrain as can be found in campgrounds with no pine trees. The Southern Black Hills has a lot to offer travelers if interested.

After a hard long day of driving, not to mention a minor traffic incident that day, I pull in to get the most tipsy turvy spot in the campground. I know, I know, I should of requested a new site, but by then I was plugged in and had every Lynx and piece of wood I own out to level and was angry. It wasn't like all sites were taken. Did enjoy the outdoor breakfast and swim the next morning.......

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you were not pleased with your experience. Because of the rural setting including a large number of trees in the campground there are some sites that follow the natural terrain and are not completely level. We could have moved you to a different site if this one was not workable.

Beautiful campground run by extremely friendly and helpful people! The bathrooms are so clean my husband even remarked about it. You don't feel like you have to dodge hairballs and spiders when you shower! The only suggestion I have is heavier curtains to block the light at night. Nice to have a well lit campground. Just too much light in the cabin for sleep.

Awesome Kabins, super clean bathrooms, very friendly staff. Thanks!

One of the better KOA's we have stayed in. Thank you.
Jun 24, 2013
The staff was super friendly and helpful! It was clean and the breakfast at the KOA cafe was delicious! Will definitely stay again! Thank you!!

Very friendly hosts, very clean. Only short coming is that it is too far from the attractions, like Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore.
Jun 22, 2013
John and Kathy were absolutely fabulous to our vintage airstream group. Everyone enjoyed their friendly atmosphere. The facilities were excellent and very well maintained. We would definitely have another rally with Adlers at their KAoa if the opportunity should arise.

no fire rings and rv sites are a little to close to trees and other rv's could not open awning, concern about employee smoking section behind store...Owners were wonderful people

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you were not pleased with your experience. It is not feasible to have fire rings at all sites because of frequent burn bans in this area. There is a community fire pit & fire rings available on a 1st come, 1st serve basis when not in a burn ban.

Everything was perfect. I would definately recommend Hot springs KOA
Jun 18, 2013
Well run campground with an excellent staff. Site leveling could use more work.
