Great location, great staff, and clean environment. Was an awesome place to be able to see the local sights and have a spacious cabin site to come back to.

All info was present for a late check in which I appreciate, but the chuck wagon/cook is regularly not there 2 days a week. This is one of the reasons we booked was for this convenience. The website should state this. Disappointing b/c we had hungry kids in the morning with no packed food. Going to a restaurant in town is just not that easy when you're trying to enjoy the morning and then pack up.


Our website and directory both state that breakfast is served on "weekends".

Our stay at your KOA campground was terrific! The whole staff was very friendly and helpful! The site was clean and the cabin we stayed in was just perfect! We had so much fun during our stay! The Wild Rabbits were fun to watch too!

one person at the front desk was pushy and not as friendly as the others. also she called after we left to state the key was not returned despite it being dropped off in the drop box. The manager politely apologized for the error after I called to confirm the key was dropped off

Great AM staff very helpful and kind. Loved watching the kids bounce around and interact with each other on the huge bounce pillow. Plan on staying here in I can catch what I missed this time.

we have never stayed here before. Usually we stay at the Mt. Rushmore KOA, this was closer to our activities planned the next day. The husband and wife owners were very nice. It was a very clean facility. They were very good at recommending restaurants. Location was good for activities around Custer. The KOA itself was very peaceful and quiet despite all the activity.

It was very hot and our camping cabin did not have air conditioning. I requested a fan and at first I wasn't sure they took me seriously.I assured them I was serious. Later they delivered a fan to our cabin. The office, store, and sink for doing dishes were all close to our cabin.

Our family has always camped on BLM, or at state parks. This was our first KOA experience. It was very family friendly, clean and reasonably priced. We would visit a KOA again.

The campground was clean all around and quiet. The only problem was my six year old was able to reach the soap on the back wall and the one next to the sink was also empty. The staff was friendly and engaged with my kids questions and conversations. Thank you

Cabins are very close together and felt cramped. Appreciated the good communication from staff about incoming storm and the firewood delivery direct to the site.
Jul 12, 2017
Cabins and showers/bathrooms we're very clean. Anything we forgot we found at the camp store. The kids loved the jumping pillow. Will return again if we come back to the black hills.

First time camping in a cabin and it was AMAZING!! If we're ever back in SD we'll be staying with you again!

Very nice. Very pleasant people working there. Love the idea of them serving breakfast. The cost is very low and much worth it. Good food. Nice clean camp grounds.

Clean and well managed. Was full when we stayed here, yet quiet after hours. Very relaxing 4 days. Wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you!!!

The staff and camp did their best to deal with a terrible storm that came through right before we arrived, which took out some tents and the electricity...other than that there were no issues.

Bathrooms extremely clean. Was impressed with the modern look. Disappointed with having no electricity on our last nite. Wish the campground had a secondary lite source for those that stayed in the cabins ex: flashlights etc.

This is a wonderful campground located close enough to all South Dakota has to offer, but without compromising on a true camping experience. It was clean, fun, and comfortable.

Amazingly friendly staff from the front desk to the maintenance staff! Cabin and showers were clean and updated! Campground very quiet and relaxed which is what is needed after a day of fun in the Black Hills.
