The grounds and facilities were clean and well-kept. The staff was friendly and willing to be of service. My only disappointment was that the quiet time rule was not enforced.


Sorry about the quiet hours, the people that caused the problems are no longer welcome here. Thank you for your stay.

Great place to stay on my motorcycle trip to the Sturgis Rally. I had a quiet tent site next to the lake. Staff was friendly at check-in. Showers/bathrooms were clean. Great location,just off the interstate, but quiet. Definitely would return/recommend.

One night, Tent camping on motorcycle. Would be more motorcycle friendly if you had asphalt instead of loose gravel all over.


Our tent sites are not graveled and are on grass! Asphalt is VERY expensive!!

I stayed at 5 KOA locations all week and this one was by far my favorite. The lady at the front desk was so nice and I couldn't have asked for better service. I didn't have any problems moving my campsite to the lake front and the whole location was just an oasis in the middle of baron farm land. I would love to return here again, as long as I could get a lake front site again. lol
