I was very disappointed that my cabin was right next to a busy road and had terrible scenery. Ended up not staying the next night and forfeiting that nights stay because they would not refund my money. They need to specify on line where that cabin is located makes sence why it was the only one open that weekend.

not much to say, good facility like I expect at KOA. Area is great.

Nice location, friendly staff,ice cream social!Good Mexican Restaurant near.We stayed in a cabin. The restrooms are a ways from the cabins, especially in the middle of the night. Also the water faucet at the back of the cabins was not working. We got water from one of the empty tent sites but I would have felt uncomfortable to use them if the sites were occupied.

Cabins outdated yet functional. Air conditioner filter completely clogged. Overall it was nice and close to the interstate road.

Campground staff very friendly and the bathrooms/showers clean. Upgrades coming! Cabin was smaller (not much room to move around) than others for our family of 6. So grateful for a laundry room!

We really enjoyed staying at the cabins with our extended family. Conveniently located local restaurant and corner market made it easy to get essentials. The staff was friendly and the playground and restrooms were clean and well maintained.

The cabin was smelly and dirty, trash and dirt under the dirty matresses and smells like urine. No fire pit :( No check in time on the website. Roads are improperly marked. The bathrooms were cramped, small, and uncomfortable. SPEARFISH KOA is falling apart. Seems like no one takes care of maintence or cleaning duties.not worth 60$ a night.

I stayed in a cabin...it was fine, but barely.. the restrooms are nasty. Very dirty. The stalls are way too small...im 5' 8" and when trying to use the biffy I would bump my head on the door while bending over to wipe....Really? The power failure was fun...I used my flashlight to go to the can but the toilets were full of crap because KOA cant afford a $200 generator to keep the well pump runnin

Loved it. It's next to the freeway, but it's exactly what we wanted for convenience to everything else. I've need to Palmer Gulch several times while visiting the Rapid City area...I would have never made it to Spearfish if all of the other KOA'S were not already booked for the 4th. Lucky lucky us... we found Spearfish canyon, and had a really wonderful authentic SD experience.

Clean, friendly, well taken care of. I did not like the adult bunk style bed in the camping cabin.

Kim was very helpful and accomodating to our group of youth and adults. She helped us get an excellent rate, the pool and the cabins were perfect!

Our favorite KOA Kampground. Very clean and comfortable. Congratulation on your new construction of the restrooms and showers in the near future.

Can't say that our experience was bad, just underwhelming. We were staying in KOA camping cabins across the country and the cabin at this KOA was more like an unfinished shed on the inside. We didn't experience this anywhere else. Also, no fire pit at the cabin, just a grill.

Everything was great except there is no air conditioning in the bathhouse. On a hot day it is very hard to breathe in there - especially if there are showers going on.

We only spent one night but it was very pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean and hospitable. However, we stayed in a Kamper Kabin and were awakened at 4 a.m. by a cat fight under the Kabin.

This is my second time staying at a KOA and it's been a wonderful experience each time. The staff is very helpful and always checking to make sure everything is ok with our stay. We had a blast, thank you!

I only gave it a 4 star rating due to the dog poop next to us that we walked through all weekend. The garbage sacks were cheap and ripped open easily. The garbage wasn't picked up often enough. My suggestion would be.... put a large barrel on back of golf cart, pick up campers garbage and then deposit in dumpster. Pool was nice and very clean. Help very friendly.

A strong thunderstorm moved thru the area our first night there. We had just gotten our tent set up when the rain started. The staff checked on us to make sure we were okay. Temperatures dipped really low and they were awesome about finding a cabin for us to use the rest of our stay.

We had a great time , and the people there went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable.

Easy to find location with helpful staff. A+

The KOA was very well maintained and nice. Snowed on during our stay.

It was great, staff was awesome. Everything was clean and nice and we loved the ice cream social we will be back.

hosts were helpful in providing information regarding their community and revealed locations to places of interest

grounds were very clean and cabin, maybe at some point update the bathrooms

Pretty basic, no frills KOA. Some showers in the only bathroom not working and water pressure pretty weak in the one I used. Staff I encountered were friendly and helpfull. Other than the shower glitch, park was well maintained and clean.

We really liked this KOA because the rabbits gave it uniqueness. It was quiet all the time.

Clean sites and cabins. Friendly and helpful staff. Two reasons that I did not give 5 stars are 1: they do not have firerings at every site and 2: while their pool is heated, they do not have a hottub.

Convenient place to stay and great access to surrounding places to visit.

The office is only open until 8, but they had everything ready for me when I pulled in at 9:30, and even came out and guided my big rig to a parking spot near my cabin. I wish they had more fun stuff in their gift shop!


So glad to hear you had a nice stay. We just opened the store/gift shop this year (brand new owners) and are already planning to expand the gift offerings for next year!! Hope to see you again! Kim Hamilton, Owner

I love Spearfish and the campground.It is now under new ownership and they seemed to be really nice folks and well underway to success. I think they actually really care how your stay was..

We have stayed at many KOA's. The Spearfish KOA has been the friendliest and cleanest one we have stayed at. We will definitely stay there again!

Unfortunately we didn't make our stay due to weather and tornado warnings issued for the state. And due to the cancelation policy we were not given a refund or partial refund. The tasting given doesn't reflect the camp,but a rating had to be given and so due to policy, that was the reason for the score.


I'm sorry you weren't able to make it to our campground due to the weather conditions. We follow the national KOA Cancellation Policy, but also do offer to allow you to use your lost deposit on a future stay at our campground this season if you or someone you know is in our area.

Had a very pleasant experience.

Wonderful people to work with - so friendly and helpful. The wash-up area of the showers needs an expansion, but the facility was really clean. Laundry was immaculate. We enjoyed the super-clean pool, too.
Jul 21, 2015
Awkward to walk from Kabins to restrooms, no clear path, especially tricky at night!

Can't say enough good things about this KOA. Owners have made a great many improvements. We didn't have a fire pit at our cabin and went away for the day. When we returned we had a fire pit!!!! Over and above!! Ice cream social was a blast too. Thank you!!

The stay was good. Cabins were good. My biggest complaint is no outlets available to plug anything in. Couldn't use my radio the whole weekend. There is two outlets and the AC takes up one of them. So not many options for other things. I would highly recommend adding outlets to the cabins. The smaller ones that is. Bathrooms were fairly clean. Wood was very expensive. Pool was nice and clean.

Very accommodating and nice! Super clean. One off the best KOA I have stayed at.
