Cabin Reviews

Stayed in a camper cabin, which was perfect for our needs.

Far more than we expected. We should have booked an additional day. Our play was just to use this as home base for our sightseeing. Wow the kids absolutely loved the campground and we were very impressed. The staff were all very nice. Sadly my husband lost his work phone during our stay. We plan on returning next year.

Super nice KOA! The only improvements that need made are with Internet service through out the camp ground. Also, it was the only KOA that we've stayed at that didn't have a chair in the Kamping Cabin. Other than that it was excellent!

The KOA is great. It is huge and has many amenities. There is a lot of things for the kids to do there. We did not get to do as many things there as my kids wanted to because we only had three days in the area. There are several pools, a slide, spray park, jump pillow, climbing wall, hay rides and more! We stayed in the Deluxe cabins and they were well worth the money.

Everything was great until I got nipped by a chipmunk! Overall a great stay, but I would suggest that you try to do something about the critters living under your cabins!

Great family fun! Enjoyed the 2 room Kamping Kabin with three teens, worked out great!

We were in a camping cabin and the fire pit was way to close to the edge hill so we couldn't sit around the fire.

I loved it

I'd like to say it's better but the only positive I can say is that it is convenient to Mt. Rushmore. It's crowded and unclean. The wireless claim is silly. We tried all 3 hotspots (even at 5am) and could never get connectivity. They should not advertise wireless. If you want a good location, go for it but we've have stayed at much better KOA's.

This Kampground is big and beautiful with a lot to do. Swimming pools, horseback riding, ATV's... You'll never get bored while staying here.

My kids and I couldn't have had a better time! The camping cabin we stayed in was excellent, the amenities all around were great, and the location was perfect. We will be back in the future!

Was so impressed.....could have change entire vacation just to stay with you longer. Already planning a week stay with other family members. We will be back.

The washrooms and showers need better cleaning, even by my bachelor standards; it was something of an embarrassment to bring my mother and sisters here. The showers need fixing up. More hooks in the wall to hang clothes, towels, etc. A shelf in the showers to set soap bottles, etc., on. Would have used kitchen if closer to cabins.

Cabins were cute. Would have been nice if there were restrooms a bit more closer to the cabins. But all-in-all, a good place to stay...

The bathrooms were filthy with toilets backed up daily & 3 of the 8 showers out of order. All the campsites (Cabins, Tents & RVs) are WAY too close to each other offering no privacy. The pool that was open was disgusting, with the other one closed the whole time we were there. The Pancake tent & firewood was WAY overpriced! Too many dogs & dog-poop! Ghetto campground but beautiful scenery!
Jul 03, 2014
We loved it! Lots of activities for the kids, all the necessities, and great location. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Huge koa, very close to mt rushmore, lots to do! General store has about everything you may have forgotten, very friendly people. No heaters in cabins, but they will give you one with a $20 deposit. Could've stayed here a whole week easily!

This place was very nice. Best location in the hills. Lots of things to do for the kids at the camp ground. Reasonable prices for things in the stores and snack areas. Only problem was there were a number of showers out of order which caused lines. 20-25% not working in our building.

Bathroom was always dirty and in disrepair. There is no excuse for no hooks or shelves in shower (poor/lazy maintenance). I was clearly overcharged on bill but it took three meetings to get it straightened out. Tent campers placed 10 feet in front of our camping cabin even though many other options were available. This campground has gone way downhill (10 stays in 13 years).
Jul 02, 2014
The best KOA in the nation, without a doubt.

This campground has lots of fun activities for kids. We stayed in a camping cabin. Very disappointed in the cleanliness. Cabin was dirty. I swept the floor and we couldn't believe how much dirt there was from the previous campers. Bathrooms and showers were disgusting. They need a serious deep cleaning. Pizza place was great! Splash pad and playgrounds were hits with my kids.

Nice campground, but HUGE, more like a small town than a campground. Nothing bad to say other than this is not a typical KOA so don't go in expecting that.
Jul 01, 2014
This was not my favorite but I knew when we booked it was large, many features we did not need so expensive. We ended up cleaning the ground around our cabin of the cigarette butts, limes, candy wrappers etc.

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.

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.

Our kabin was exactly what was expected. Activities were awesome, staff friendly, clean bathrooms. Loved our stay!
Jun 30, 2014
Great location nestled in the mountains surrounding Rushmore! Lots of great activities for kids and a fantastic pancake breakfast!

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.

I love the location of this KOA, can not beat it. I do love the small shops on site to. I do have to say the camp ground bathroom and showers are filthy. One of the stalls in the men bathroom and feces on the floor for the whole 7 days we were their, that's just wrong and many of the showers and laundry equipment was out of service our entire stay. The cabin we rented had a dirty sock on the bed.

Deluxe cabin was perfect. Campground well kept and friendly. So much to do! Favorite part was the horse back riding available right on site!
Jun 28, 2014
The campground is well maintained. All the workers are very friendly and helpful. There is so much to do on the campground, you don't even need to leave. We traveled with 2 12 year old grandsons who stayed busy and had so much fun. Thank you for a wonderful week.
