RV Reviews

Our family said.."This is like Disney Land!" We had the most wonderful, memorable time!
Sep 05, 2013
It was great. Water park for the kiddies, a movie every night, and car rentals so you can see all the local attractions for those traveling by RV.

Overall an enjoyable stay, would return again. Was disappointed with waterslide for kids way too dirty, and made reservation and paid 10 dollars to "hold" site #549 got there and was given site #597 which does not have cable but paid same rate quoted for site with cable??? No explanation as to why site changed. Loved the pancake breakfast very nicely done, especially nice on day of check out.

Fantastic campground for family. We were very impressed with all of the activities/play centers for children!
Sep 04, 2013
we had a tent s site next to the horse trail was nice then we got rained out, moved to the top of the hill but there the gravel roads were washed out the next morning, all in all we will be back in two years

Facilities and Staff were great!

Beautiful place. Nice people. Traffic past our site was non-stop and most were going too fast.

WE ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF OUR STAY-SOO CLOSE TO MT RUSHMORE WE WOULD DO IT AGAIN & HOPE TO
Sep 04, 2013
Everything!! Was wonderful... Except bathroom and showers in #4 were regularly dirty and terribly mildewed the entire time...we actually on the second day started walking all the way over to another comfort station rather than deal with that. Mildew, dirt, poor water pressure ...not good. But otherwise our time was wonderful!

This is a great park, but not on a holiday weekend. People were driving their ATVs all over the roads and they were noisy and disrespectful of other campers.

Excellent location with many activities for kids. We have a 5 and 7 year old, and there was way more to do than they could keep up with.
Sep 03, 2013
Lots of activities and things to do. Sites in back of grounds a little more secluded than most KOAs.
Sep 03, 2013
it is very crowded and loud. that is why I would not return. Also, the rentals of anything is VERY unorganized and crazy!! there needs to be a system because there is no communication between the desk rental clerk to the guy giving away the bikes (etc). The pancake breakfast was over talked and under rated. $2.50= $10 after you get everything else! NOT mentioned in the promos.
Sep 03, 2013
We enjoyed our visit. We would of rated our stay as great if the wifi access had been better, restrooms and showers cleaner, and swimming pool cleaner.
Sep 03, 2013
Very enjoyable. Most staff were friendly and helpful!

This was our second stay at this campground and we had 5 adults and 4 children and every single one of us had a great time once again. There is something to do for everyone. We camped on Memorial weekend and Labor day Weekends and there were a lot of people staying in the campground but it did not feel at all over crowded. This is a well maintained and fun place to stay with friendly employees.
Sep 03, 2013
Such a great time... can't wait to come back!
Sep 03, 2013
I would like to see more process controls in place for rental equipment and more information on the activities that are available on any given day. Never having stayed at the Mt Rushmore KOA finding things to do at the right times was kind of like an Easter egg hunt. Over all it was a great time and was happy to find 0 mosquitos at our camp. The office personnel was super helpful.

We always enjoy staying at Palmer Gulch.....so many activities for everyone and the staff is great!

Overall I was very impressed with the campground and all the great activities available. We unfortunately stayed next too a couple that was loud and the Sheriff was actually called in for the incident which made a couple of our sleeping nights rough, but the resort was very nice.

We had so much fun at the Faith Family Weekend! The whole weekend was a total blast and I would tell anyone that wants to have fun in the Black Hills to stay at Palmer Gulch anytime! It is worth it !
Sep 02, 2013
we had a great time although we thought that the wood was extremley expensive. considering that the mountains are full of dead wood that is only good for fire wood we would have thought it would be a little less.
Sep 02, 2013
Feces on restroom wall. Bartender rude.

Great weekend! Looking forward to Faith weekend next year. Could I suggest a week earlier as my kids start school the following Monday. If it was a week sooner, we would stay till the Monday after.
Sep 01, 2013
Unbelievable, this is a resort, not just a campground. Will highly recommend
Sep 01, 2013
Lots of amenities. However very pricey. I have never paid a daily fee at a KOA for a dog or to use the pool. $3 per day for the dog and $10 per day for the pool! In addition to $57 per night for cAmping. That will be a deterrent for any return visits.

This was our first stay at KOA Mount Rushmore and we throughly enjoyed the staff and amenities. Great location to see all the attractions in and around the Black Hills.

Washrooms in front section not up to standard of other facilities. Horse stables (and smell) too close to front swimming pool. Surprised this even meets national health standards.

Disappointed in limited cable availability 38/463 sites. New pet Kamp OK, but needs work. Easy access to local attractions.
