Campground Reviews

Everything was great but the shower and bathrooms. They were GROSS/DIRTY/MOLD in the shower. Need a hanger on the shower head so that there is a place to put your toiletries I know there are a lot of people thereI also seen a lot of workers just messing around. They could be cleaning and keeping up with restrooms.

We loved all the activities for the family and the workers were really friendly and great. The bathrooms could use cleaning. I had 4 kids under the age 7 so asked to be close to the playground and bathrooms but ended up being far away. That was about the only problem we had.

I was disappointed in the bathroom situation. Several of the shower stalls did not drain and curtains were moldy.

This KOA has it all. Great place for families

My only two issues are that our tent sites with amenities had an outlet for electric that was completely unusable and there seemed to be a lot of campsites for not very many bathrooms. Otherwise-wow what an amazing place. Easy to see why they are an award winner. Would love to have been able to take advantage of even half of what the campground had to offer.

great place for family and kids so much to do. It was a little disappointing that the pool area was closed for two of the days we were there.

Although we prefer smaller and quieter KOAs, this destination KOA was very well run. The staff was very accommodating and the activities available great! Loved the Chuckwagon Dinner.

Our second time to this KOA. Had a good time. Pool was clean. Plenty of showers, although not the cleanest-their cleaning staff take more time playing w/ their iPhones and music. Great activities for the kids. Staff friendly. Everything however is very over priced!! The little Fiddle Sticks and Ice Cream and Turkey leg/roasted corn shop, all WAY too expensive. Hardly anyone buying a thing!

I understand that people go camping to get away but some people need to be able to stay in contact with the rest of the world. WIFI and Cell service to the area would make a huge improvement and likely to get my family back. Otherwise a great time was had during our stay. Close to many activities and sites.

The stay was for the most part enjoyable. I loved the Kamping Kitchen- we used that a number of times. That is a great addition to the camp grounds. The one issue I had was the swimming pool. My son was looking forward to being able to swim and spend time in the water. But the water was so gross and discusting I would not let him swim. THe water was greena nd had many things floating in it.

This was one of the best vacations that my family and I have ever had.Your staff was professional and the customer service was outstanding. took care of us was awesome.We went there with the plan to go visit the sites and missed a couple due to the request of my kids to hang out there and play. When we come back to SD we WILL be booking with you and have already recommended you to everyone we kno

Very nice, has everything you would need in one place. Thanks for the stay!!!

I think the KOA was fine, lots of features and amenities. The wifi was nonexistent so I think that is misleading.

Great Campground, lots to do. My kids didn't want to leave the campground to see the sites of the Black Hills.

What a great facility!! We only scheduled to stay one night as we traveled to yellowstone. The kids did not want to leave as there were many activities to keep them occupied. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay.

So much fun - lots to do!
Jul 29, 2013
Great location. Very large number of campers and not a lot of space between sites. Showers/ bathrooms were not very clean, and sometimes needed to wait for shower. Great activities for the kids on site.

The two main pools were green, the Jacuzzi was lime green and the water slide pool was brown. The bathrooms were not clean....same bugs and toilet tissue on the ground ALL WEEK!! I felt totally ripped off for the price I paid to stay here. I talked to many dissatisfied customers during my stay. Not a great way to run a business.

Been here 5yrs running. May not come back. Shower houses disgusting, pool & slide closed-still green when opened, workers unhappy. Too bad, used to be the best. Management-step it up!
Jul 29, 2013
It was great!!!
Jul 29, 2013
The BEST place to camp. We come every year and it just keeps getting better and better!

The camping lots are quite small and the roads are very narrow. It is a very busy camp ground and a very large number of children, I was quite concerned that an accident would occur with the high traffic flow and the busy children on the roads especially with the low profile tricycles many were riding. The staff was helpful and polite.
Jul 29, 2013
We were far from the other members of our crew. It would have been much better if we were side by side. Otherwise, there were tons of people there and lots of things for the kids to do and enjoy. It was a good time for all.
Jul 29, 2013
Nearby horse stables make huge fly problems as well as manure smells. Rowdy children without seeing any monitoring of grounds by adults.
Jul 29, 2013
We had a great time! Kids had so much to do and it was very relaxing for the adults!!
Jul 29, 2013
Great place for family fun. Tons of great things to do staff was friendly, prices were good and area was close to everything. Would definitely stay again.

The bathrooms in the back camping section are in need of an update. LOTS of activities for kids/families; so if you are looking for peace and quiet, go somewhere else. If you want to be entertained in the campground, this is the place for you!
Jul 28, 2013
Awesome place to stay!! Can not wait till next year when we come again
Jul 28, 2013
What a fun resort campground! I wish all KOAs were this nice. We truly enjoyed our stay. I do advise you though to keep your employees happy. It's the only way your campground will remain successful. Take care of your people.

Need to fix muddy drinking water problem. Had to use two water filter catridges in six days.

Free wifi barely works. Campsite was supposed to cost $72 per night but after "additional fees" was over $109 per night. Had we known, would have booked elsewhere.

We stayed at 6 different KOA's between NY and Colorado on our vacation, and personally, this was our least favorite. It was too "bustling" for our liking. The pools were crowded (one was green with algae). The cabins were very expensive, and they didn't have a/c or a fan in them. The staff was friendly. This KOA just had more of a "resort feel" to it than a campground.
Jul 28, 2013
Loved location to all the black hills fun. Staff were friendly. Tons to do for kids. Wish we would have had more time to spend at campground. Enjoyed horseback riding and chuck wagon. Only disappointment was how quick it booked. We booked 4+ months ago and had limited options. Would have like to consider a cabin with bathroom or something at lodge but already booked.
Jul 28, 2013
You have a well organized, clean camground with many fun activities, however, no tv, no cell coverage, and little to no wifi made our stay difficult and unpleasant.
Jul 28, 2013
My kids thought this was the best campground we stayed at!

The campground had a lot to offer esp. for children. It was set in a beautiful valley surrounded by the forest and cliffs. The staff were very nice. Unfortunately, our cabin was filthy! The pool was green and dirty. The jacuzzi's had a chemical in them which made them unbearable to sit in. The bathroom's were not kept very clean and needed some fixing. We "might" go back again.
Jul 28, 2013
Firewood was a little bit expensive considering the cost of the sites. Other than that everything else was just wonderful.
