The place is nice and clean. The spots good size. There are two problems. One no cellphone reception. My mother is doing so well, so you say go up the hill to gat service. Don't thinks. Second, to get in you have to go through the Badlands. You have to pay to go in and out. $20.00 a shot. Done families can't afford that. Should be some sort wavier.


Most of our guests are visiting the National Park also, so their pass is good for several days. There are routes to the campground That do not go through the park. Please call us if you would like those directions. 605-433-5337. Thanks.

KoA camp workers running their Harley motorcycles for 20 minutes during the afternoon while KOA staff said nothing to them spoiled the stay a little. Bathroomso clean, nice running, hiking road just across the street. About four miles from Badlands. Check In staff on duty very helpful.


Thank you for altering us to this. We will be sure it is not a problem in the future.

This is my 3rd time traveling across the US staying at KOA's and the Badlands KOA is the best! It's a beautiful, spacious campground with really great people running it. Definitely worth a visit!

When we arrived the Kampground was not fully open for the season but we were graciously welcomed and had a pleasant one night stay. If I return to the Badlands for and extended time I would certainly stay at this Koa.

Friendly, helpful staff. Pool being redone and wasn't open yet. Looks like it will be nice when completed. Great area!

I've reviewed before, so I'll keep this short. Great KOA, with great features and a friendly staff. We love going there.

Beautiful stay just 6 miles from the visitor center. Well kept park with a great dog run. They were putting in a new pool so should be great too.

A peaceful oasis, clean restrooms, and very friendly staff. This is off the main highway, but worth the 4 mile drive!

This is a good location for exploring the Badlands. Bathrooms were clean, but campsites needed attention. Our picnic table was covered with bird and tree droppings. Grass area looked like it had not been raked this season. We have stayed at many KOAs and have gotten used to the golf cart noise and dust, but it was ridiculous here. It was nearly constant.


We are a nesting grounds for several species of birds. We are sorry they visited your site after we had cleaned it. Shoulder season is the time of getting winter off of the sites, and we apologize yours was not yet spiffed for spring.

We had a great time. There were two RVs in our party, they parked us together and insured we were happy for the evening. Next day they gave us tips of the area sites to see. They were glad we selected their camp to stay at, wished us well on our future travels when we departed. Thank you Bob and Karen.

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the owners, Karen & Bob Brown. We felt welcomed immediately. Hot coffee available in the well equipped store. Bob led the way to our excellent RV site. What a beautiful location. Quiet, pretty and very clean. Good showers, toilets, laundry and barbeque areas. Lovely landscaping, shaded areas and lots of room. Loved this Koa. Would definately return. Thanks.

It was ended of season, so not much going on, but you could see that there were more things to do in the summer, like a pool and jacuzzi. There's a sad little mini golf course, but young kids wouldn't know the difference. Older kids would find it "lame". Owner Bob is a character and really nice guy.

Great place to stay - quiet, friendly. Well worth the money and a little drive off the freeway.

Nice, clean campground. Friendly staff. Nearby highway is busier than you would think given this campground is in the middle of nowhere.

We were only there for 2 nights and it was close to the end of the season, so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy all of the amenities but the campground was centrally located in the Badlands.
