The tent sites are much more private than at other KOA's I've stayed at which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed the breakfast options they had.

Clean facilities and having breakfast every morning were both welcome at such an affordable site. Everyone at the office/store was very pleasant and helpful.

Hot Springs KOA was excellent. The kids loved the pool, the playground, and the free mini golf. The bathrooms and showers were the cleanest and nicest of any we saw on our trip. And the staff was very helpful and friendly, definitely going above and beyond the norm to give us a good experience. We would definitely go back!

my complaint about this KOA's tent camping area is the mud. it was so muddy every time you took a step an inch of mud stuck to your shoes. our Shoes, tents, chairs, motorcycles and the carpets in our cars were covered in mud the consistency of dog poop. I know you can't control the weather but you can control the condition of your campsites. I have never been denied a full refund at any other KOA.

Loved this KOA. There were lots of trees between the tent sites which gave a bit of privacy when wanted. The pool was great, showers were free and bathrooms were always clean. Rose was very knowledgable when we had questions and suggested places to go for us. The pancake breakfast was cheap and delicious. We stayed 3 nights. Loved all of it.

Don't understand why we couldn't set up our tent an hour early, had set up in the dark! No wood for fire pit!

The bathrooms and pool were very clean and well maintained. The tents sites being on their own is nice. All of the staff was friendly and helpful

We really enjoyed our time here. We were in a tent campsite that looked out through the pines to a small pond below. It was beautiful and my sons didn't want to leave!

We loved it! The staff was in "transition" to new owners. Everyone was friendly, supportive and helpful. They made sure we got the BEST tent camp site!

Very friendly and clean. The campground was quiet. The WIFI signal was a little weak and it was a little far from town, but not too bad.

Very nice KOA but the campsite we were at was directly behind a cabin and no one else was in the area until late and that was the cabin people were given instead of one farther from us. Very noisy so in order to get some quiet we had to move our tent to another site at 11:00 that night. Camp host should have separated us more. Poor judgment on placement.

The stay was great

The garbage truck came at two am! We woke up and couldn't go back to sleep, and the road noise was loud, but we ordered a pizza and they delivered it to our tent! The staff were really friendly, and when the bathroom door was stuck, they imminently fixed it.


Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that the garbage truck woke you up, but picking up the garbage before everyone in the campground is out & about leaving for the day seems to work the best so they are not in the way.

Facility was very clean very peaceful staff was absolutely wonderful this area was for the location as it was surrounded with tourist attractions all over and even though this was a Sturgis Rally Adventure this area of the state is rich with fun things to do. Great GreatKOA staff

Great place to stay.

Bathrooms were nice and clean and the light pole by each tent site was a nice touch.
Aug 11, 2015
The camp site was a good size for us. It was clean with a picnic table and fire pit. The campsite offered a wonderful breakfast that was reasonably priced. The showers and bathrooms were clean. Everyone was pleasant.

Though it were for one night only we had a wonderful time at your site and the surrounding area. We are looking forward to visiting the area again soon!!

I made my reservation 7-8mos. Ago And ask to be close to restroom & was put in the furthest spot away at the bottom of the gravel road & had to park my bike in a wash out... I'm 62 years old on a motorcycle with my wife this was not good at all

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.

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!
Jul 27, 2015
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
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 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!

This KOA does not stack up to the usual KOA standards. The welcome was at best "lukewarm". We are tent campers and the tent pads are small (6 sleeper tent had issue to fit), not level and gravel needs to be replenished. Pool posed safety hazard (ladder not anchored), bathrooms were clean, however replenishing of paper products in ladies room a daily issue.

Nice and clean, great breakfast. Loved the trees and the layout.
Jul 16, 2015
We had a great stay.

Superbe site. Beaucoup d'activités offertes. Seul bémol : les sites de tentes sont sur de la pierre. Difficile de planter des pics pour les tentes.
Jul 12, 2015
Comfortable, relaxing - enjoyed the camp.

I forgot my fleece jacket and the management kindly sent it to my home.

Very freiny owners. Very clean facility.

Rec room was way to hot to enjoy. There were no changing table in the restrooms. Breakfast was good and inexpensive. Bathrooms were way too far from the tent sites. This caused alot of problems. Also since the bathrooms were so far alot of people had to drive to them ... this caused headlights to constantly shine in our tent at night, waking everyone up.


Thank you for your comments. Our rec room has 2 air conditioners but when kids leave the door open they just can't keep the room cool. We do offer tent sites w/electric that are closer to the bathrooms that does not require driving to use them. We are sorry that just a few were passing by your site.
