Meet Your Hosts
"The Mt. Rushmore KOA is the place where you can do as much or as little as you like."It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Mount Rushmore KOA Resort and The Lodge at Palmer Gulch! I am new to the property in 2015, but not new to the camping industry. Prior to coming to Palmer Gulch, I spent 9 years working for the KOA Inc. in Billings, MT. My wife Anita, my two great kids and I, made the move to the beautiful Black Hills in early 2015. When not serving our guests or staff, we can be found on our mountain bikes or playing music on our church worship team.
In 2015, Palmer Gulch will be celebrating 90 years of commercial history. It all started with mining and grew into the Black Hills Country Club in 1925, a dude ranch and now a world class resort with camping, lodging, and recreation for everyone. Maintaining this rich heritage and providing a first class experience to our guests is an enormous responsibility that the entire staff and I take very seriously. If there is anything that we can do to help make your stay more enjoyable, please ask.
