This KOA had everything and a kid and an adult would want. We ended up adding a day to our stay because we liked it so much.

Beautiful campground extremely geared toward families. Lots of activities for kids. For such an awesome campground I was totally surprised by the disgusting little dog park. It was totally overgrown, tiny and deserted.

Had a very nice stay. Close to a lot of attractions. Nice clean and quite. Will stay again.

Called ahead & was told prices when on the road. When arrived I was told this was a "Resort" campground and there was an extra $10 fee. People who answer phones should be able to give out the correct information.

The most incredible KOA we have ever experienced. I wish we had a week at this location. The staff was so friendly and amazing.

From check in to the end of our stay, my family and I were overjoyed with our choice of campground! My kids rode horses, played basketball, swam, and fished in the pond. Our site was clean and our view was awesome!! Mt. Rushmore was only a ten minute drive away, and we saw mountain goats and deer along the way. The KOA staff was very friendly, and we are very happy with our choice to stay there!!

I haven't been to a KOA since I was a kid 30 years ago. My memories from back the were ok, but not great. This trip was a pleasant surprise. KOAs have changed a lot! We will be doing a lot more trips like this in near future!!!

The only problem is the lack of wifi service. It made it difficult to make reservations for the remainder of our trip.

Great location, lots of activity choices. Very busy and large. Good for kids. Our grandson loved the waterslide and play areas. Sadly, it was cooler and rainy while we were there, so not as much time in the pools as he would have liked, but we were out seeing the local sites and wildlife, so it was okay.

It was a very pretty place but for retired people we paid for a lot of things we didn't use. I think a young family it would be very good. It is not a place where you just want to camp and tour the hills it is too expensive.

Sewer problem in lower part of main campground by the new pool. Smells like sewer in shower house and hot tub is disgusting. WiFi does not work even in the main check-in building. Not much cell phone service here either.

Lots of stuff to do, especially for the kids. Well maintained, friendly staff, beautiful scenery. Love this place.

Had some parking lot sites and some rural areas that were nice. Could not get WiFi or cable in the rural sites... Staff very friendly and helpful... Loved the deep fried bacon!! Noticing when younger staff comes on they are not too helpful or friendly...

Everything was excellent besides the wifi and the poor quality and stinky water.
Aug 28, 2014
Location is great. Wifi coverage needs to be improved. The dog play area needs to be repaired and/or expanded; it is sadly neglected. Add another, more central laundry area. Overall the amenities are great, but the ones most important to me were lacking.

Great place to stay. Clean and friendly staff too!

Mount Rushmore KOA was wonderful. They had so many activities and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Papa's pancakes were great. I would recommend Mount Rushmore KOA to anyone with children because there are so many activities for them to do.

Great place just one draw back. Wi-fi. Not good .
Aug 27, 2014
The signs on the camp roads are very hard to read in the dark, no escort was offered to our sight, so getting in and getting set up was very difficult.Light bulbs in the laundry room were burnt out. The pancake breakfast sounded like a good deal, except everything was actually a la carte and priced so that the "$2.75 all you can eat pancakes" was more like $26 for a Family of 4 breakfast

I really enjoyed the park and the amenities offered. There was a faith festival taking place and I would have preferred a quieter setting. That was a fluke I am sure. Otherwise everything was good.
Aug 26, 2014
We were impressed by the facilities and the extra amenities that were available. It was a nice to call home for a few days.

Family vacation. Our grandaughter loved the horses. Rode 2 days in a row. She says she wants to go back evey year, so guess we'll see you next year. Everyone was extremely friendly. Thanks KOA.

Gorgeous site and fabulous staff! Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.

Bathrooms were very dirty....we stayed 4 nights and the same piece of gum was on the wall the entire stay....Black mold in showers..

The concept of KOA is geared for family's which is a great thing. But we are two seniors traveling and have no interest in anything that is offered. Loved our stay; very clean, great staff and would stay again; maybe.

Excellent KOA with excellent amenities and close proximity to all the Black Hills have to offer. We had a wonderful stay!

This was a wonderful campground. It had lots of activities, was central to lots of sites and the staff in general was wonderful. The only problems we had was a rude staff at the icecream shop and the hot tubs did not seem to have the proper chemical balance.

Has such high hopes for this place. 12 year old boys dream place!!, and parents nightmare. As the preteens rule the roost here. Not very family oriented. Says they have internet, but they don't. They keep saying its b/c of all the campers. You'd think they could plan infrastructure around how many camping spots they have. It's the largest KOA and it shows. Won't be staying there again
