The pool was not operational, but they called me before our stay to inform and allow opportunity to cancel reservation. Everything else was great. Good family atmosphere with outdoor games and activities for the kids.

Custer KOA was awesome, the staff all were so friendly and super helpful with whatever we needed. It was well maintained, super clean and newer bathroom facilities. It was fun for our 7 y.o. and dog as well. We will definitely be returning yearly to explore more of the area.

The staff was friendly and helped me find the perfect spot for my hammock. When it looked like it was going to be cold and rainy, they made a backup plan for me to move into a cabin if I needed. When I was having some trouble with my morning fire, two of them offered their microwave to heat my breakfast if it came to that. Very nice people, lovely bathrooms (I enjoyed the space heater in there.)

Other than my site not being very level, everything here was great. Staff very helpful and friendly. It’s the second time we’ve stayed at this KOA and would stay there again. I have a 42ft 5th wheel.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Great hosts and beautiful weather and country.

This campground was great to stay at! Wonderful accommodations and friendly staff. Clean restrooms/showers, and a good atmosphere. Only tiny thing is that our space for our tent was a little small, so our tent spilled over the sides a bit - but otherwise, would definitely recommend this site!

Even though our stay here was brief, we were impressed with the camp. Front desk workers were accommodating and very friendly. Oh and the bunnies were a joy to watch. Enjoyed our stay?

nice big tent site t13 was good, lots to see around.

Nice clean and quiet camp ground. The pads for the tents are nice and flat, which is nice but they are hard.

This KOA could use some major upgradeing compared to other KOA camp sites. It is very rocky and no grass anywhere around any of the sites. The shower and washroom area at the main building is far better then the stand alone one in the middle of the grounds. The raised tent site pads were a huge plus considering the huge storm that came through creating a river of water through the site. Well treed

It does not have as many amenities as Palmer Gulch KOA or the spaciousness the Devil's Tower KOA. However, the staff is very friendly and the facilities are very clean and nice. It is also very close to some major attractions including Custer State Park, Jewel Cave, Crazy Horse, as well as others. Would stay here again.

To loud and not very clean for young families with kids.
Jul 28, 2017
Facilities were nice, but campground lay out is awful. Tent sites are at the bottom of hills so when it rained our tent was flooded.

The staff was very nice and helpful. The showers and toilet areas need some TLC and upgrading. the laundry facilities could also use some upgrades, such as, painting cleaning and brighter lighting.

Wonderfully clean and well kept showers and toilets. Swimming pool is in dire need of shade/awning.

This campground was the best! Very clean bathrooms and showers. My kids loved the jump pad and pool. What a great place! This was our 1st time camping at a KOA and we would definitely come again.

Our stay was really nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The only wish would be more shaded areas for tents.

Everything was great. Even the bathrooms and shower houses were super clean. No complaints. The guy driving around the campground in a golf cart acted like he hated his job (KOA police?), he was not very nice or friendly, but all the other staff was very hospitable. Thank you for the great stay.


Thanks for the great comments. We take pride in our hospitality. As for the employee you mentioned, rest assured I will deal with the matter immediately. Again, thank you. Safe travels.

We were doing a "winging it" vacation so could only get a site for one night, but we have camped here before and wanted to again. Very friendly staff.
