Campground Reviews

Jun 30, 2014
We stayed at the Mt. Rushmore KOA for 5 days during our family reunion 6/21 thru 6/26. I made my reservations in December of 2013 and was disspointed that staff let somebody else change my reservation without my knowledge or permission. I ended up in a cabin very far away from the rest of the family as an outcome. Cabin flooded, customer service was not the best. Grounds and amenities were great.

Grea place! Conveinient to all the major attractions and the staff was tremendous. Only negatives were the shower house next to our area being cleaned too early in AM so we had to trek to another one; Hot tib in pool area looked very dirty; lack of abilility to comunicate with the outsoiide world (also a +)

We had a great time at Mount Rushmore KOA. this KOA can be a vacation stay all together. Many things to do at this KOA. Staff was always helpful, and greeted you every time when you entered the door.

Nice place, however they missed our request to have our two parties located together. The staff tried to correct the problem but said they couldnt find two sites together. Funny, because we had open spots next to us both nights. This put us walking clear across the campground to have meals with our family. Otherwise, great place in a beautiful location. Well situated to visit Rushmore.

Excellent place to stay. Great employees, amenities, and things to do. Would have liked panned for gold in the creek, but entire creek sides were thick with weeds and brush.

This is a GREAT KOA for family and kids but a very poor KOA for those wanting a relaxing get away. No Wifi, or cell service and very noisy all night long. The Staff is great.

I could say a lot of different things here, but really the words of my 5 year old daughter sum up this campground best, "Mommy, this place must REALLY love kids!" We had a great stay. Thanks so much we will certainly be back!

Everything was wonderful and lots to do for the kids. I would recommend that the shower facilities be checked more frequently as our bathroom was nasty with people not flushing and plugging toilets. Also would recommend a sign stating to flush by pushing the top button as most walk away thinking it is automatic. Otherwise very nice!

Awesome campground for our family. Kids had such a great time with all the kid amenities. Showers were ok but bathrooms were very clean and well kept. We would definitely bring the family back for another camping trip!!

The sites are small and not well maintained. We have 5thwheel camper & a slide the site was small and was on a slope. It was a muddy mess do to all of the rain so adding more pea gravel in pot holes. We did ask for another site but no one showed up to take us there. We found it the next morning and it was smaller. The noise level from weddings was loud which other campers were talkin overthe music

Everything was very convenient. Our only problem was that we did not see the little sign on the bulletin board warning about iron spots in the laundry room until our clothing was already in the washer. Needless to saw our white clothing was all stain and some unwearable. Not a good thing when you are traveling across the country. 😞

Staff was friendly. Campsite was smaller than expected and womens bathroom only had 2 stalls that weren't out of order the whole weekend. I probably should have said something but didn't. Otherwise, pools, playground, pancakes were great! Very nice Bartender in the bar. Wonderful views of the hills. We would stay again.

The food at the Ponderosa didn't meet our expectations. The campground was lovely and located in a very beautiful location. We enjoyed our stay very much!

The scenery at this campground is stunning and it is such a great place for families to go. There is so much to do here that my children would have had as much fun staying there all day. Renting ATV's was by far the best part of our trip. I loved having so many activities for them to choose from. The staff here is very accommodating as well. Will definitely be coming back.

Great. Only problem, Grass un-mowed in my spot for the whole week.

Beautiful setting. Great activities for kids and adults (Grapes & Grinds). Courteous staff. Loved the pools on hot days. Seemed like 20% of showers and bathrooms were out of order.
Jun 29, 2014
Filthy bathrooms, showers, plugged up toilets for over 12 hours, shower faucet broken, yuck.

Bad RV site. Muddy area and sloping ground. Good and diverse offer.

Appreciated the early check in, approximately 2 hours. It allowed my children the opportunity to do some horseback riding. Great stay. Thank you.

Excellent Location, extras and amenities are way too expensive. Some of the staff are less than courteous at the front desk. The 10.00 per day activity should be used for those who wish to use the services, and not a mandatory charge. The advertisement suggest that the shuttle service is complimentary and not an additional charge.

Staff was outstanding! All hardworking and attentive. Mini golf was worn out,useless and covered with water and/or mud most of the time. Two of the four women's toilets were not in use many times. When we paid for electric and water hook up, we were disappointed that it had no dumping hole. All others in our row had it.

W stayed for 4 days with reservation, we were placed in the lowest part of the camp. there was constant mud and at one time there was 3" of muddy water at our door. we also lost water because some one drove into a water specked. not happy, with our site, the camp grounds would have been nice if we were not dealing with the mudd!

The location is great, and there are lots of activities for kids. However, there was a very large number of tent and cabin campers tring to use the restroom/shower facilities. Within hours of being cleaned, the restroom looked and smelled like it had not been cleaned e en when I observed it being cleaned. Half of the showers in our bath house were "out of order". The camp kitchen was very dirty.

Sites full of trash and excessively small. Would not recommend this KOA to anyone. Kids loved all the things for them to do.
