nice facility, some road noise

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 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

Bathrooms were nice and clean and the light pole by each tent site was a nice touch.

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!

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.

Nice and clean, great breakfast. Loved the trees and the layout.

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.

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.

When I was in need of something, I asked John and/or the staff and all of my needs were met. Unbelievable camping experience.
Jun 29, 2015
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.

great staff, super breakfasts, nicely maintained, AAA

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
Jun 13, 2015
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.

Very friendly and helpful hosts. I am traveling by motorcycle and was given a great spot to pitch a tent and park the bike.

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.
Aug 09, 2014

It was wonderful everythig so nice and clean

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.

Very good - Excellent place from which to visit the southern Black Hills area.
