Tent Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When I was in need of something, I asked John and/or the staff and all of my needs were met. Unbelievable camping experience.

What a wonderful experience! We loved that so much was included with our stay. We also appreciated the attentive staff and the clean facilities.

Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet at a KOA. The friendliest and most helpful owners and staff we've ever encountered at a KOA. Stay here, you won't regret it.


Thank you for your nice comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

I would rate it higher but I didn't like the gravel tent pads, Had a huge thunderstorm and there was dirt and mud all around. Most KOA's we have stayed at had grass tent pads. We were over a small hill from the office and had no wifi. We were told when we checked in there would be none but we weren't told when we made reservations even though we inquired about about WIFI.

Nice clean KOA

GREAT staff, good service, and lovely area. Only thing that could be improved is better wifi. I was barely able to get a signal even right by the office/store. Otherwise I had a great time. Thanks!

I have a concealed handgun permit. I was disappointed to learn of your no firearms policy from the flier/map after arrival. That alone is enough for me to never stay at your location again.


While we understand that folks may travel with concealed weapons in their possession, that is fine. We just do not allow displaying or firing firearms in our campground as most campgrounds do not allow that. Please keep weapons locked in your vehicle or camper when staying with us.

The camp ground was great and everyone was friendly. The only negative was the noise from the truckers on the highway using their engine brakes.

The KOA hosts were very helpful and friendly. They run a very nice campground. The location is convenient to the main Black Hills attractions while being in a quieter part of the area.
