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!

Great experience! Everything was very clean.. restrooms and cabin! People were kind and helpful! Will come back to stay again!

Very well maintained establishment. A very affordable place.

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.

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.

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!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

I really enjoyed my stay at this KOA. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The cabins were clean and meet all expectations. I would definitely stay there again!

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!!

The cabin was very comfortable and relaxing. The pool was clean and refreshing. We enjoyed being my all the sights we wanted to see!
Jul 04, 2015
John and Kathy were great. any issues were taken care of right away whether we needed anything for the cabin or a fire ring
Jul 02, 2015
Stayed in a deluxe cabin. Nice to have a tv for news after a long trip. The owners were great and accommodating to our unique needs. The mini golf was fun. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. Bathroom a/c and fridge in deluxe cabin are so nice to have for travelers!

The owners are very nice, hard working people. We stayed in a deluxe cabin that was spotless. Great stay.
Jun 27, 2015
two cabin nites (twice), excellent staff/happy people/very clean in all areas - love the old forest feel of the ponderosa/juniper, etc. Perhaps some time aome cyprus could be planted for traffic noise as it sits at the hwy. But overall - excellent.

We stayed in a Deluxe Cabin that was spotless and the staff was fantastic. There was a breakfast available every morning and is cooked by an incredible cook by the name of Marcy. This KOA is a great spot to stay and explore the area.
Jun 24, 2015
WOW-John and Cathy are friendly, helpful, cheerful hosts who aim to please their guests with great service and a quiet, clean campground. This is by far, the number one campground for personal service we have had in 15 years of traveling and camping with our family. THANKS!

Probably the nicest KOA I have stayed at. John and Cathy bent over backwards to make sure our stay was a good one.

My friends made a last minute fishing trip and they were able to fit us in That night. Nice deluxe cabins!

Greatest KOA in South Dakota. As their season is winding down we still were given full service and a Pizza dinner cooked for use. Hot Springs has the most friendly and helpful staff. The Luxary Kabin was beautiful. I will stay as soon as they open in the spring. Thanks for the Great Weekend!!!

Like the wooded area and walking path.
Oct 08, 2014
The grounds and facilities are great. Wifi at the single cabins is not good. We had a deluxe cabin and 2 single cabins. At night, we had wasps in the single cabins. The only offer of assistance from the staff was to give us wasp spray. Refund requested for last night in single cabin due to wasps and staff has not called and will not return calls. I do not recommend staying at this KOA.

Nice place and great people work there. Needed a light bulb above bed and more toilet paper. Nice cabin though.

I would give you a 5 star but when i was getting into your pool the ladder came up and out of the concrete and my leg got caught in it and it bent me back into the water and i was kicking trying to get my leg out and the ladder cut my foot. I did tell the lady at the front desk to have someone take a look at the ladder so it does not happened to anyone else. we will be back the kids loved it.

FRIENDLY, HELPFUL, CLEAN,
Aug 24, 2014
Enjoy my stay, probly wouldn't recommend the place, unless I knew someone that was going to Hot Springs, SD. Felt the cabins were too expensive, enjoyed talking with the owners tho.

Thank you for your comments. Hot Springs serves as the southern gateway into the Black Hills. Close to or in Hot Springs is the Mammoth Site, Evans Plunge, Pioneer Museum, & Wind Cave Natl Park. We are not far from other attractions in the Black Hills. Cabin prices are comparable to others in area.

All staff and campground an A+. I will stay again.
Aug 06, 2014
Staff was very friendly. Bathrooms were kept clean. Wish there would have been grass around our cabin.
Aug 05, 2014
It was a good central location for all the enjoyable activities we attended.

Camper cabin was fine as usual -- little pricier than we imagined, though. Did have AC, but didn't actually need it. Breakfast too overpriced & service was strange - burned our toast, told us they won't serve it if burned, but then did not make more for us until we requested it. Friendly owners - nice convenience of microwave, laundry facilities & decent store. No fire rings/charcoal at campsites.
Jul 29, 2014
This KOA was conveniently located for a night's rest. The pool was nice. The Deluxe Cabin was nice and fairly new!
