We have stayed at several KOA's and this is one of the nicest places to stay. The owners are super people and will stay again.

John and Cathy are two great KOA host. They always make our stay an enjoyable one even though we usually can only stay for one night. John always puts us in a cabin that will accommodate our vehicle and cargo trailer and we always feel safe and welcome in this KOA. Cathy always greets us with a smile and a cheerful hello. Thanks John and Cathy. See you in June 2016

Enjoyed the campground very much, it was clean, welcoming, and more wooded/secluded than other KOA campgrounds I saw in the area. I stayed in a deluxe cabin which was very nice - clean and cozy. However, the bed was so hard I've ended up with severe neck and back pain, there were several wasps in the cabin, and the wifi didn't work at all.

The Adlers and staff run a great operation. Cabin was well maintained, as were the grounds, including bathrooms, store, mini golf, and game room.

Overall awesome campground with friendly staff. Our only knock was the freezing cold "heated" pool. We stay at KOA's because we like to swim, so this was a bummer.

Great cabin...very clean and accommodating. I only complaint is the breakfast, which was kind of greasy, dried biscuits, and under-cooked hash browns. The staff were amazing, friendly, and hospitable.

We stayed for 3 nights in a basic cabin and found this was one of the cleanest KOAs we've ever been to. The kids loved the pool area and rec room, and I appreciated the cleanliness of the bathrooms and cabin. The only drawback was finding a wasp nest in our picnic table; two of my kids were stung repeatedly.

We were so happy our kamping kabin had AC considering it was one of the hottest weekends of the summer. Restrooms/showers were exceptionally clean. Breakfast was great! The place has WiFi, but the signal was very limited where we were staying.

Excellent! The owners were very accommodating and friendly. Great facilities.

Very nice place to stay. only reason for a 4 star were the staff didn't interact with guests like the other KOA we had stayed at on out trip. Very clean facility.

Nicely shaded. We stayed in a cabin this time, but like to tent camp. It's nice to have shade trees when all you've got is a tent.

I stayed in a deluxe cabin, it was very nice with everthing I needed. Staff was super friendly. Breakfast was very slow to make (over 30 min), again staff was friendly.

A great place to stay slightly removed from all the traffic of the Parks.

The folks seemed lovely, but the spot was very public, not attractive, and full of ants.

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

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.


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

What a great place to meet with my family. John and Cathy are the greatest hosts.

I was very impressed with our cabin condition! I have stayed in some not so nice ones, this one is GREAT!!
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.

Great little cabin. Very friendly staff.
Jul 20, 2015
Really great spot to stay. Clean pool. Clean restrooms. The only downside was our cabin had a door that stuck and the area outside of it was small, but the other cabins we saw looked like they had nice space outside. Highly recommend!
Jul 20, 2015
Great experience! Everything was very clean.. restrooms and cabin! People were kind and helpful! Will come back to stay again!
Jul 20, 2015
Very well maintained establishment. A very affordable place.
Jul 20, 2015
The hosts were wonderful, the pool was outstanding. The only downsides were extremely low water pressure, and we could only get WiFi (only two bars) if we sat right up by the office. Even then it cut out constantly.


Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately you were here over the 4th of July weekend when the campground was full. There were a lot of people using water which can lead to low water pressure at times. As for the WiFi, you were in a cabin on the fringe of the WiFi range & we always tell folks that.

very enjoyable stay. Great owners and staff.

Cabins were clean, washrooms were clean, lots of stuff in the store, coffee and breakfast were cheap, and it is a great location to get to everything in the black hills area.


Thank you for your wonderful comments.

The cabins are so close together it feels like you are sitting in your neighbors lap and you are on public display. I like my privacy. Also, very disappointed that there were no free pancakes. Owners said they open their breakfasts to the public because Hot Springs has only 1 or 2 other places to get breakfast. We counted more than 6. That's HOGWASH!!


Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you we're unhappy w/ your cabin, we could have moved you to a cabin on the hill if you asked. We started our café 3 yrs ago when restaurants were closing in town to offer breakfast. Now there are 4 restaurants in town that offer breakfast.

Our stay at Hotsprings KOA in SD was WONDERFUL!! There are 2 Hotsprings KOA's so we were devastated when we arrived in SD (from Canada) without a reservation...we booked in AR. John & Cathy immediately took care of us and everything worked out better than imagined. Wonderful friendly staff that go above & beyond, well maintained resort, lots of amenities, very clean & organized. AMAZING!!


Thank you for your comments. We are glad you had a good vacation & hope that you will return again.
