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.

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.

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!

It was great!!!

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.

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 28, 2013
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!

Awesome place to stay!! Can not wait till next year when we come again

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.
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!

Firewood was a little bit expensive considering the cost of the sites. Other than that everything else was just wonderful.

I made two reservations over the phone, one for me one for my daughter. I have a value card to use for my sight. The person I talked to said he would give me a 10% discount for the second sight. When I got there I was told that I couldn't get the discount for the second sight, so the person I talked to lied to me.

The only thing to improve would be the bathrooms. We used comfort station #4 the most, and the bathrooms we never really clean. The shower curtains had mold growing on them and bathroom was out of toilet paper more than once. Otherwise, all was good. Love your campground.
Jul 28, 2013
Location was great. Was surprised there was a fee for the shuttle bus to mount rushmore. Wish the horses were not next to the ice cream shop. It was a little stinky while eating!
Jul 28, 2013
Beautiful situated, checkin irrational - had to wait outside for a service staff that never arrived. After 25 minutes I went in again to ask where the person went. Unorganized. Asked why WiFi did not work - answer: many is complaining you have to wait for it to work! Got poor speed and signal after half an hour. Campsite very clean, calm despite a lot of guests. Staff young and donĀ“t care.

The campsite was very accommodating in moving our campsite to a slightly larger site, however the sites in those areas have are disturbed by the street lights by the front parking lot.

First time campers at a koa is was a super positive experience staff was super friendly and soon as I pulled in directed me where to go that was really nice after a long drive. All the amenities were top notch I will definitely camp koa again
Jul 27, 2013
Pool closed for two days even though they kept saying it would be open the next day. Road graters going through mid day. Definitely not coming back!
Jul 27, 2013
Beautiful grounds, well taken care of, friendly staff, safe area and good food in Ponderosa restaurant. All in all, it was very nice!!!
Jul 27, 2013
The shower and restroom facilities are very dirty. Even after the crew came to clean they were not clean. I think this place could be much better if they had a couple more restroom/shower facilities and they were cleaned better.

Great campground for kids!!!
Jul 27, 2013
Great place; has everything; run by nice people!
Jul 27, 2013
Stay good, great kids area, not good arrangement for bikes on the roads where the traffic is so heavy
Jul 27, 2013
While the campground was nice.The sites need to be shaded or at least Aline the sites for some afternoon shade.The bigger problem was the horrible fly situation.We could hardly be outside for amount of flys.Maybe moving the dumpster full of horse manure near the campground would be a start.On our next trip to the hills we will have to find a different spot and we can't recommend this campground .

I was quite disappointed in some of the activities we were looking forward to during our stay. The rock wall was closed the first night we were there and the second night it started thundering before we got to the front of the line. My kids refused to go on the jumping pillow because they were afraid of getting hurt by too many kids on it. The water slide was super slow/emptied into a dirty pool.
Jul 27, 2013
The site was terrible. Everybody right on top of everybody.Extremely high fees for very little value. I will do everything in my power to avoid staying in a KOA campsite ever again. I will never recommend it to anybody as well.Come to Canada to see REAL campsites.
Jul 27, 2013
We stayed for two nights. It is a fabulous place to stay and especially if you have a family. We really enjoyed it was close to a lot of places and had what we needed. It was a really nice place to stay and if we are there again we will stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone

The campground was awesome, but whats up with the water in the pools and water slide. Green and dirty.
