Campground Reviews

Aug 02, 2014
Kids loved it- Hard to get them to leave all the activities at the camp to do site seeing.
Aug 02, 2014
We just returned from our five day stay at your park and the kids are still smiling! The activities for kids were amazing and so much fun they didn't want to leave! The valley that the campground is located in is really beautiful and well laid out. My favorite part of the park was the friendly staff. Everyone was helpful and kind. We are already planning our return trip for next year!Thank you!

Fun amenities, could be cleaner and pools/hot tub were out of order some times. Close camping sites, felt we would have liked more space. A bit rundown, with a little more work, could be much nicer. Activity schedule was fun for the kids. Staff were friendly. Bathrooms needed daily cleaning, soap was out frequently. Liked the wine tasting.

It was a great to time at your campground but the showers needed much attention and in need of remodeling. The odor in the showers from mold-mildew is overpowering.

Campground was nice, but crowded. If you have children, they can literally stay busy all day, with activities, the pool, bouncy tramp, and other things. Our slot, even though we paid for full service, was very small, and on a gravel road. Reception of cell phones is sporadic, at best, and hotspots were not so hot. Staff was wonderful, and very accommodating.

Lots of fun activities for kids and very friendly staff. Bathrooms could be cleaned more often.

We only stayed one night to check the campground out for a future stay with the grandkids. There are lots of activities for all ages. It's a little pricey for an overnight stay without taking advantage of the extra amenities.

We have gone to this KOA twice and will continue coming back because of the wonderful experience we always have. My kids have the time of their lives.

Big campground with many activities and amenities, would never have to leave campground! Wi-fi not good, but they told you that when you checked in. Two pools for kids. Beautiful setting and close proximity to Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park.

The KOA facility was very nice, with wonderful amenities. For those whom might need internet connectivity, you might want to look for a more suitable facility. For the price per night, additional boosters or technology should be invested in. We had better support in remote sections of the hills. This shouldn't be.

Great facilities and service!

After 2 weeks in beautiful campgrounds around Yellowstone and Glacier National Park, this campground felt more like a county fair than actual camping. It was crowded, there were screaming kids everywhere, the water out of the taps was brown, and the RVs outnumbered tents 20 to 1. If you want any kind of relaxing, authentic camping experience, skip this campground. It was a circus.

I was in #406 by myself & I was comfortable. I will be returning next summer with my Wife and Daughter & I hope to upgrade to a cabin with a bathroom. Thank you.

Awesome view of the rock formation to the south. Friendly staff and evey thing you need at the main lodge. The grand kids loved all of the activities. Will come back in a few years.

Wish for more teen things to do. (ie) movie nights - large field area of land up by cabins could have been an ice cream & movie screen area for teen movies. -bathrooms/showersrestrooms should be tended to & looked in on multiple times a day/more often. Golf cart rentals/ family bikes were $ too high.. More in fleet to lease & for less per day. Pancake tent was great. All in All, so fun, Great Jo

Everyone was polite (okay -- the workers, not all the fellow campers), the camp was well cared for & clean. A pleasant stay. A point off for the "small print" @ breakfast.

A very busy place...
Aug 01, 2014
Your staff was extremely helpful in finding us additional sights and an RV repairman when we had to extend our stay during one of their busiest weeks due to a problem with our coach.

It was the best KOA we stayed at. There was so much for the kids to do.. In fact we extended our stay we liked it so much! We would stay here again if we ever come back out west!!

We had a wonderful time and your campgrounds and facilities and staff were wonderful thank you

Your camp ground is very nice. My 2 suggestions are your advertised wi-fi was a joke. Even up to the front the service was sketchy at best. The other suggestion is we paid for a better RV space. The cement pad out side the door was broken and I tripped and nearly hit the deck. Please consider if you advertise wi-fi, make sure you really have it. Your campground is very nice.

Super close to Mt Rushmore. Great facilities. Bathrooms were clean. The pancake breakfast is a great deal.

Even though we had to make multiple changes to our reservation the staff was always friendly and helpful. The kids thought we were in paradise with all of the awesome activities! Great place to stay.

WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My son just had back surgery and was able to horseback ride and he had a ball. Kudo's to the staff at the stables. They were awesome. We also enjoyed the restaurant and pub and the balcony was delightful. Only negative was the restrooms by our site. I have to say it was not management or maintenance's fault. The men's room was disgusting due to guests behavio

We enjoyed the camp ground! Sites are a little tight but didn't really bother us. The pool was a little gross looking towards end of the day but that happens with kids. The horses were great and we loved the chuck wagon ride!

Most amazing KOA we've been to. Now my boys have high expectations that may never be met again!

very busy, was moved 3 times but very clean and nice.

HUGE Campground, well stoked and well run. CLOSE to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse + everything else. LOTS fo do in Cmpgd.

Lots of things to do but we paid extra for wifi and it didn't work at all. Even outside was useless.

I can't understand the mentality of stabling horses next to the eating areas. The stench was overwelming! I will not be coming back.

Far and away the worst KOA stayed at. We booked a tent site. Because they had overbooked there was a pickup truck, towable RV and boat trailer in our site when we came back. Staff said we had to share. There was not even room for my car left and had to park several hundred yards away. Our RV neighbors drank, smoked and partied less than 10 feet from our tent. Staff would not do anything. No sleep.

Lots of fun things to do at this KOA The Resort is ok, the horse rides were less than expected. Great base camp for exploring the black hills. Breakfast was good, just get there early or wait a while.
