Campground Reviews

Aug 11, 2013
I was very disappointed with my stay at this KOA. I paid for a premium back in site. What I got was a back in site with no wifi service out by the stinking horse manure trailer and a million flies. I don't think at this time I would stay there again.

very poor site

Somewhat disappointed. Water at first site smelled of sulfer and was dark brown. Could not get cell phone nor wi fi service at either of our campsites. The grounds were beautiful and cleaned quickly after each rainstorm washed out part of our road.

Over all great campground, sites a little to close and tight as far as parking goes but we made it work. Roads need to be maintained a little better. Price of fire wood could be cheaper for what you get.
Aug 10, 2013
Nice areas for kids. Had a lot of rain when we stayed problem with flooding some sites could use more gravel. Wi fi didn't work very well very poor signal strength.

Wifi was useless, No Cell Phone Reception, inadequate showers and restrooms. Park not equipped to handle Rain storm, 3 nights in a row our area turned into a flash flood due to no drainage plan. Sites too small, Minimal room to park your vehicle, should have more paved roads into campsites to reduce mud.

You need more bath houses for the size of this campground. I did like the store and staff were friendly and helpful. Nice restaurant that was a plus. Need dryer fire wood. Overall nice stay. Like the area very much.

Wonderful facilities. Ambassador helped when we had problems with our water heater. Recommended a very reliable mobile RV service, Jim's RV service. He corrected the problem, quickly and efficiently. Met some great people.

We were not sure how our stay would go as we happened to be there during bike week and your campground was very busy. We were delighted to receive personal help from Kendra when booking KOA sites further in our trip.

I loved it. We got there and checked in and by the time we were set up I already knew I was going to extend our stay. There was never a dull moment with all the fun things to do. It was supposed to be just a place to sleep while we visited surrounding attractions however we found ourselves wanting to go back to camp and hang out there. We will definitely recommend staying there.

Great pancake breakfast. Nice showers. Friendly staff. Like the lodge and selections inside. Also the restaurant. The pizza and rib joint was nice. Nice place. Nicely staffed and accommodations.

a lot of things for the kids, and very close to Mt.Rushmore. Campsite were not well developed. I know that being in the trees, and on hills sometimes that is impossible to get reasonably level sites. This place is part of a huge resort. Did not get cable or WIFI as expected. The cost was outrageous. $71 + a day!!!

Noisy, dirty, front desk not attentive, laundry too far away from rv sites. Wifi didn't work expensive and didn't even feel like it was worth the money. Liked other locations in deer lodge, butte, buffalo, west yellowstone, all way better than this location.

This KOA offers a lot of activities at a great location however the bathrooms were below standard. There were sinks and urnals out of order during the week of the Sturgis motorcycle rally. here was also a strong need for more washersdryers in the laundry area...Staff was very friendly though!

Space had standing water and was muddy during our entire stay. Space was right next to the dumpster. This is the second bad experience. KOA has probably lost a customer. KOA does not seem to care.

The campground was great so much for the grandkids to do and close to every thing that we wanted to see we -only one draw back the laundry need more washers and dryers and turn up the heat on the dryers,for the cost we should get a little more.

KOA was an awesome place to stay on our South Dakota Vacation. It was a central location to all the sites we wanted to see. We also came back from our day of site seeing & the kids would have fun doing all the different activities that were offered. The highlight of the trip was Horseback riding & Eva was an awesome guide.

road drainage terrible lots of washouts.restroom,showers,laundry house disgusting I was cleaner going into the shower than when I left it.watched the cleaning crew, they were terrible I had to point out things they missed while I was doing laundry.

Lots of activities for kids, bathroom showers could have been a little cleaner, hard to find campsite at night, need more signs

Web site should state wifi not available at campsites and cell reception. My space was 554.
Aug 09, 2013
I liked that there was a fishing pond and paddle boats. But everything seemed to cost twice as much as Flintstones in Custer and was alot more crowded. Staff was all friendly except by horse area. Yelled at adult niece for coming within some sort of range of trail...(returning from hike)

We stayed only one night, but it was awesome! The people, the facilities and the pancake breakfast were amazing!
Aug 09, 2013
need to get cell phone service!
Aug 08, 2013
The campground was great and facilities well kept. My only negative was you have no cell coverage and the internet access is super slow even if you can get a signal (which is not often).
Aug 08, 2013
Excellent facilities and staff and programs. Less rain and mud would have been nice.

We had a good time in the area, but the restrooms Were moldy & dirty. Would not take a second shower. Would not recommend this Koa.
Aug 08, 2013
This ia the best KOA that I've ever stayed at. Our group did have a small problem when we checked in, but the management team quickly fixed it. I would recommend this camp ground to anyone going to the Mt. Rushmore area.

Reserved sites in February for 4-sites together. No! No! They tried, Manager arrived, got 3-sites together. CG covered with bikers for "Sturgis" and that's OK. Neighbors were bikers and friendly, cared for others, and were respectful. Some liked to hear their "roar" at all hours. Go figure! Will return to CG for sure but will check our arrival and departure dates for sure.

Lots of extra stuff to do, even for a KOA. Beautiful scenery and area. Only downfall was one of two pools was green and was closed for a few days.
Aug 08, 2013
This is the best value for a family vacation. We visited in 2010 and thought we would be let down in 2013, but it was even better than we remembered. We were also happy to see that everything had been very well maintained with new things added. We love this campground!!

a beautiful place to stay with lots of activities for our kids. The location to all activities was perfect.
Aug 08, 2013
We loved our visit to the KOA in Mt. Rushmore!! It is absolutely beautiful! We are new to the whole camping thing and decided to rent an RV for 10 days and travel west. We spent 2 days here and by far it was our favorite of the 6 we stayed at along the way. The only thing I would suggest is the for campground to use nylon type shower curtains - the plastic ones you have collect mold 8(

i have been to this campground in the past... i enjoyed my experience again

The only thing you need to work on is the little shop where you sell the ice cream. They have no customer service. You ask them questions, they just point to the wall. Then, when they make the order, they turn their backs on you. They ignore their customers. I work in a summer community. I know how VERY important customers are.

The cabin floor was very dirty. One of the pools was closed with no sign or reason which is annoying when the campground is so full.
