Average KOA facility. Bathrooms not very clean. Months of soap scum. Once a week deep clean in showers would help. Very close to Badlands NP tho!

It is described on the website as an oasis in the Badlands and it certainly is! The campground is clean, well kept and the sites are laid out very nicely. The entire staff was very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. This is definitely the place to stay if you're visiting the Badlands area.

Great location and facility!

A bit overpriced. Very clean & quiet. Renovations to one of the bathrooms/shower houses - the signs needed to be not only in English but other languages for the many overseas travelers who were confused.

We only spent one night in transit, but enjoyed the friendly campground hosts. We are hoping to stay there also on our way home. Great location for Badlands exploration.

It was our first stay at a KOA - we loved the friendly atmosphere, the cleanliness of everything, and the many options of things to do. It appears they are always working at improving things there too.

Good location, close to the Badlands. Site was level and close to the large dog run. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the grounds were well-maintained.

Nice campground. Very clean and quiet. Staff was very helpful. The dog run was a great bonus for the dogs. Very convenient to the Badlands.

I had to make two last minute switches to my stay. I knew that when I made one change I would not be able to get the site I wanted but that was ok. Then the day of check in I decided to rent a cabin instead and one was available! Ilwe did camp during non peak season which I'm sure helped. But the campground was nice!. I loved hearing the owls. The staff was great!!!!

nice kampground hard to get to.construction made things difficult for using the facilities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Good news! Our construction projects are complete: newly renovated bathrooms and a brand new pool!

Sites are very small

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Many are over 60 feet long, and all are wide enough so that your slide doesn't hang over your neighbor's picnic table. In addition we have some double wide sites available, so next time ask for one of those. All our sites are level, and most have shade trees.

This campground has nice facilities, plenty of space between campsites, and is very well cared for by the staff. And of course the location and price can't be beat. I will definitely be staying here whenever I am in the area and I would recommend this KOA to anyone visiting the Badlands.

Dave was very friendly and helpful. Nice location and quiet setting. We we able to see The Custer Battlefield Memorial, which was great. We learn a lot of history about the indians and the US government.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice review. We are some distance from the Little Bighorn battlefield, and don't recall Dave here. Perhaps you were at a KOA in Montana also?

I think the cabin is overpriced. It smelled strongly of wood varnish and it was kind of difficult to sleep well and enjoy the surrounding natural air and sounds because of that. Staff was very nice and the campground is generally pleasant. Very pretty area. I'm not ruling out staying at KOA again, but this cabin experience definitely did not make it enticing to come back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do refinish the floors of the cabins each year. This keeps them in good condition and easier to clean. Sorry you had stayed so soon after it was varnished.

Pancake breakfast wait was too long. More help needed to help cook

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do cook all breakfasts to order. Excellence may take some time.

A very well maintained and clean campground. The staff was friendly and willing to help with any ?'s. The deluxe campsite was perfect for our young family and offer nice privacy. We will definitely stay again.

Very friendly only bad part was reception for internet & phone other than that it was wonderful

Friendly, helpful staff. Well equipped, clean.

Good location but restroom facility was terrible. When asked "how did I like my stay?" I politely tried to say the shower curtains were not appropriate because it was see through and there were not hooks to hang anything. I understand construction but different temporary curtains and hooks could have been used. Worker asking did I like my stay became rude. Should have said "I'll look into it."

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry the curtain was not to your liking, and the employee did not mention they would look into the problem. The bathroom renovation project is now complete, and the showers have solid doors offering excellent privacy.
Jun 14, 2017
Absolutely beautiful campground. Well maintained and had everything you might need. Bathrooms were being remodeled while we were there so it will be even nicer.
Jun 14, 2017
Quiet, beautiful and friendly location! Would love to go back soon.

Grounds were in fair condition. One restroom/shower house was in mid renovation and marginally useable if you enjoy privacy. Staff was pleasant. Nice tree cover.
Jun 14, 2017
Staff wonderful. Place clean and really nice. We really enjoyed our stay. Awesome koa
Jun 13, 2017
We enjoyed let area, accommodate our site request, etc...
Jun 13, 2017
They were remodeling the main bathrooms not a lot of privacy. Also the pool was not open due to construction work on a new chain link fence going around it. My kids were sad they couldn't swim. The pancakes were awesome!
