Cabin Reviews

Aug 26, 2013
We were only able to stay 1 night, but loved our stay and can't wait to come back when we will be able to stay longer. Our kids are college/hs age, but still had a great time in the pools and mini golf in Keystone. Thanks!!

Love the cabin setup. Nice and quiet. Great place for kids!

Beautiful campground, tons of activities, great staff, lots of area attractions. Perfect for families!

Our son loved the fun zone and all the activities, but the cabin floor had not been cleaned before we arrived and the bathrooms were borderline unacceptable for our entire trip. A campground this size should clean the bathrooms more frequently, especially the ones near the pool.

This is a great campground. Lots of activities and fun things to do. The cabin was very comfortable. The tent sites look nice and shady as well. We didn't get to take advantage of any of the extra activities, but they looked like a lot of fun. We are thinking about coming back with our tent sometime.

Had a great stay. Kids enjoyed the pools and the horseback riding.

A wonderfully fun place for the kids. ( 8,8,10) ; plenty of organized and nonorganized activities. Restaurant Nd cafe was welcomed. Pancake breakfast budget friendly. Location is perfect to act as a "base camp" for area activities. Friendly staff. All areas were clean and maintained on a daily basis.

We loved the place however the 1st cabin had a 3ft step up to the porch. The 2nd cabin the door would not open. There was no inflatables or foam pool as promised. All activities cost too much money. Bathroom dirty. No planned activities for kids. The evening program were great. Service was fair in all restaurants, stores and grounds. Not the KOA we are used to.

the bathroom was not cleaned as well as the coffee maker(grinds still in there from last people. no extra t.p or extra soaps/shampoo's having 6 people. no kitchen soap or rags to wash dishes. garbage still there when we pulled up at 5 pm. although everyone was concerned or upset, the cleaning staff is who needs to be looked at. a bit disappointed for 250+ a night.

Great place to stay! Cabins are clean, plenty of activities to choose from. Horse back riding was nice, ATV rentals were fantastic, plenty of pools and friendly staff. The restrooms need attention more often. But they are not horrible...just need attentions more often. The location to all attractions is perfect. Overall, we HIGHLY recommend staying here.

Attached to a hotel this was a huge resort with lots of amenities. Great poil and jacuzzi area, large campsite in wooded setting, lots of kids activities. Perfect for exploring the area. 5 min to Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monuments.

I have stayed at this KOA a number of times...always been clean....this time our cabin was FILTHY and I will NEVER come back...there are 3 other KOA's around that area and I will be booking a cabin at one of those instead. Our cabin was disgusting and it had a terrible smell....one night was too much for me. We were so close to just leaving the same day we checked in. Terrible!!!

There are so many activities available. The cooking center was especially appreciated, and the fresh herbs were great. Overall the campground is very attractive, with ts of beautiful flowers. The one drawback was the condition of the bathrooms and showers. We went across the grounds each evening to shower, as the ones near the tent area weren't kept up. They should be cleaned more than once a day.

It is nice but way to busy for our family. A little to loud at times.I felt it was dangerous at times with cars, bikers, & kids running around the pool area and the streets. But, there are a lot of things to do which our kids liked. But we would not stay there again. Thank you!

Maintenance and/or housekeeping needed to be increased. Shower house closest to my site was dirty and not completely operational.

très beau terrain de camping, par contre, l'entretien ménager des toilettes et douches étaient négligés. Nous séjournons dans plusieurs KOA et s'est le premier avec des lacunes sur le ménage/salubrité des salles de toilettes et douches. difficultés également avec la captation du réseau cellulaire et internet.

The childrens activities were fabulous! Pancake breakfast was great. The sites were small and hilly. The bathrooms could have been cleaned more often. Overall, great location and great experience.

We stayed in one of the new deluxe camping cabins and had a great experience. My only criticism was of the pools - they were green and looked unsanitary.
Aug 14, 2013
Excellent Kampground!! Will DEFINATELY stay there again when we come through. Great breakfast in the morning and TONS to do just there in the Kamp.

We've been staying at this campground during bike week for the last 13 years. We get the same kamping kabin every year.
