Super clean restroom & showers. Friendly, helpful people. Clean cabin. The entire campground was clean.. The experience was EXCELLENT. We will see you again next year. Thank you for a pleasant stay. I never realized a camping cabin could be so much fun! Wish I could give more stars.

The staff is friendly, the bathrooms are so nice & clean. With the bathrooms being so close to the road, it's nice to feel safe with a locking key code bathroom door. It's also nice to come into a cabin & not have to clean all the spiderwebs out before staying in it. Will be back again.

It was a nice campground with rabbits and deer. Could use a larger waste basket. Not fond of bathroom codes. When we needed ice it was unavailable at store. The cabin could use more hooks.

The staff was fantastic, the bathrooms were spotless, and my kids had a blast seeing the deer walk through the campground every evening. We will be back for sure. Thank you!

Very nice campground! We loved watching the deer and bunnies. The staff was helpful and the campground is clean and quiet. Large dog park and playground. Restrooms are very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our stay in a camping cabin and look forward to staying there again!

My husband and i had 2 toddlers and a baby, stayed in a cabin 1 night and they made us move to a 2 bedroom because we had 5 people. There was a queen bed and two twin beds, and the baby did not use a bed. I did not understand what the issue was. The manager was pretty unhelpful, but the employees were friendly.


On line you stated 2 adults and 2 children. You also were not truthful at check in. Fire regulations do not base occupancy on the size of a person. In addition, although it is clearly posted that cooking is not allowed in cabins, you persisted to not adhere to posted rules.

The campground was adequate, but all special services shut down for the season. No breakfasts, the pool was closed... With the reduction in services there was no reduction in the rates.


Sorry you were not happy. All pools in this area close Labor Day. As for the breakfast, this is not a free amenity, not included in the daily site charge. Safe Travels.

The staff were absolutely amazing. At check in he took the time for us to share our vacation plans and gave us recommendations of things to look for and to do that helped make our vacation great! The campground and bathrooms were clean.

Love it all except some places were not willing to let 10 people stay in one spot our Rv sleeps 10 comfortably so. Didn't understand the problem

Before we got to the Custer KOA, my husband said "ugh, not another KOA". Afterwards, he said it was his favorite place to stay on our trip. The giant bouncy pillow is a huge hit. Also friendly staff and excellent bathrooms and the kids loved that the pool was heated. Thanks so much!

The people were wonderful. We were dismayed at how early the pool closed (8:30pm) which is the main reason we will not stay at Custer KOA again. We did not have time to enjoy the local and nearby areas and get back in time to swim.

A great place to stay near Mt Rushmore, the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I don't know about the actual owners, but people staffing the retail stores were very rude. Made us feel like we were annoying them by being there.
Aug 07, 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a sleeper cabin while traveling through South Dakota on vacation. This is one of the cleanest KOA's I've ever been to. The cabin was clean and fresh. The shower house was updated and CLEAN! Loved the location, so close to many attractions. My only regret is that we didn't stay here longer!
