Palmer Gulch KOA is always a great time for our family! Our son wanted to have his 11th birthday party here and there was plenty for him and his friends to do. His friends said it was the best party ever! As a mom I am always pleased with the professional staff and cleanliness of the campground and bathrooms. Thank you for another wonderful camping experience!

We came with our 2 grandsons to see Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Bear country, and Reptile Gardens. Your campground was awesome. So much for them to do. They enjoyed themselves immensely. I would like to comment on the showers. They were very clean, but the doors stuck from the moisture and it would be nice to have fans in the showers. Otherwise you had much to offer and we would certainly come

This place has it all - a beautiful setting, food, shops, tons of activities for every age and it's right between Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse.

Enjoyed the campground although it seemed a lot of locals moved in on the weekend and the 10:30 p.m. quiet time didn't seem to be enforced. Bathrooms could have been maintained a little better. Lots to do in the campground which was nice. After booking our stay for three days we were told we could stay in our spot if we decided to stay longer. We decided to stay and we were moved out of our spot.

KOA golf carts fly kinking up dust. If your RV is clean coming in it will be dirty going out. The extra $10 per day resort? fee is a way to make camping more expensive. No Wifi or cable in a KOA this size and expense is a first - disappointing!

Beautiful place only negative thing is very poor internet service. When traveling I depend on the internet to do banking and bills

Very clean and friendly park. Kids loved the kid zone area. Chuck wagon dinner was a delight.

Some things are a little pricey, but I guess you can do that when you have a captive audience.

Everything was awsome for the most part. We will definitely stay here again!! I was disappointed about some of the things being closed like pool ad water slide as that is why we stayed there but they were fixed quickly and reopened so that was great. My only big conaint is the speed the KOA employees drive in the campground. They drive way to fast with all the kids around there

Great time, fun KOA. Was very disappointed with the wifi. We ended up having to adjust our plans to accommodate time in town to work. Also no mobile service.
Jun 21, 2014
would be a perfect score but the lack of Internet is a major hassle in this day and age and one that needs to be corrected for the price that you pay here.

I must say that the staff at Mount Rushmore was the most accommodating and friendly that me and my wife have ever meet. And extremely helpful. We are starting to plan our next trip to the area and we will be staying with only this KOA.

This campground was quite nice, with a fabulous view. However, we travel with a small dog and the "pet area" was too far away and too small. To their credit they trusted campers to pick up after their pets and didn't give anyone a hard time about where campers were walking their pets. Would go back there.

Scalding hot water in sinks, but no hot water for showers; $10 resort fee without ability to enjoy amenities d/t cold, rainy weather; If fee is mandatory, just add to daily charge. Some sites in our loop were too small to pull in a vehicle after set up of pop-up trailer.

The entrance is lovely. But the things that really matter have been neglected. The shower house had only 3 out of 7 showers were working and they were dirty. The pool was filthy and the pizza overpriced and lousy. For such a prime location and efforts of initial presentation, this KOA was a huge disappointment. The worse one out of the three we visited on this trip.

The price is way too high!!! We will not stay there again because of cost for what you get ! We have stayed in other KO's for reasonable price!!!

We were only there overnight, but it was amazing. We will definitely be back, only this time we're staying much longer. Top notch from check-in to check-out.

Very nice campground but tight camping slots that barely have enough length to accommodate truck and trailer. No wifi capability.
Jun 19, 2014
Everything was great except the hot tube looked very dirty. I also think when certain activites get rained out the day before it would be nice to have them the next day. The kids stayed very entertained and had a great time.

WIFI HORRIBLE

We have a 4 yr old son who is on the go from sun up to sun down. He had all sorts of activities to go and do. There were lots of other children to play with. Would go here to camp again

We had a little confusion with the electric, after being frustrated and returning to the front desk 3 time, we were finally going to just give up, but Shawn (sp) who was mowing asked us if he could help, he then called Jack (maintenance manager) who then figured out we needed an adpter, so he went somewhere, fixed our reservation, got us an adapter and saved the day, Shawn also help with network

Staff was friendly, but half the showers were not open on a holiday weekend. Pools and hot tubs were not maintained well. Pool was dark green and the hot tub was lukewarm. Location was good and centralized to Mt Rushmore and surrounding activities.

Stayed here before and will stay here again. Great except the weather.

The Mount Rushmore KOA has to be one of the best KOA's. We stayed in our RV with our 5 grandkids. There is so much for the kids to do they want to go back. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. If you get a chance, stay at the Mount Rushmore KOA!

Kids had a blast and we camped in luxury for 4 nights. Had to change sites at first due to lack of tent pads and space on most of the tent sites, but once we found 227 we were set!

Great trip up to South Dakota - clean, well-kept campground, friendly staff - we had a great time!
Jun 17, 2014
Have been here before and it was great. This time, bathrooms were really disgusting. Wads of paper on the floor, in the showers, stagnant dirty water on the shower floors. Also, lots of loud campers this weekend. Had to call on one group who were drunk and loud at about midnight. Another another group were lound until 1 AM. Maybe be proactive with security rounding at quiet time?

The heated pool could have been a little warmer but other than that our stay was great.
Jun 17, 2014
Very nice facility bad weather stopped us from using all the options available. Still had a nice stay. Keep a restaurant open past 9PM. staff was great
Jun 17, 2014
Many things to do ... Showers could be a little cleaner .

Very disappointed. Lots of extra fees. Needed gravel around our site as mud was a problem and you can't stop the rain. Internet service almost non existent. Nice park. Employees were only mildly interested in guests.

Water at camp site not usable. It was dirty red and muddy Wifi non-existent
