A great campground! Very clean facilities including the restrooms and showers. Friendly owners who care about your stay. I would definitely go back!

Again with the workers out on the camp ground just rude. Sadly!

Nice campground; right off highway. I use earplugs so no problems with noise from passing traffic. I had tent site #65 nestled in trees. I would rate it the best of all tent sites. It was debris free and pad was leveled pea gravel. A picnic table and fire ring was positioned nicely. Showers were hygienic and within acceptable walking distance. Friendly, thoughtful hosts. 5 stars all the way!

We stayed here so we could visit Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave National Park. It was convenient to all. The bathrooms were super clean and attended well. Staff was very friendly. The store was well stocked. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would come back.

Why is it that so few KOAs can manage to have hot water in the showers? I thought that was one of the main things we're paying for...

Had a great time, everything was nice and clean, friendly employees and helpful.

Beautiful campground. Tent sites had ample room and electrical/water hookups were great to have. Bathrooms clean and well kept. The only down side to our stay was that several families occupying the cabins next to us were very loud into the night. I was thankful for earplugs. Next time we will ask for tent site 69 - away from the others. We will definitely be back. Nice family environment

It was only one night; however, the lovely sounds from the highway will probably keep us from coming back. We were also a little confused when an employee kicked us out of the pool 20 minutes before the posted closing. Overall, not a bad stay and not a great stay.

Restrooms were always in need of cleaning. WiFi was much too slow.


We clean our restrooms every day and check them all throughout the day. We receive many compliments about them. I am very sorry our restrooms did not meet your expectations! Thank you for staying with us.

Nice place, excellent bathrooms. Location is weak point--it's on a busy 4-lane highway several miles from town, so no walking access to anywhere. But everything is nice in the campground.

Great Breakfast, nice bathrooms, tents spots should be switched with RV spots. RVs already have bathrooms in them.

Todd and Suzanne are amazing as always. Clean, quiet, friendly, beautiful! I actually requested my favorite tent site and Todd made it happen. My trips to the Black Hills aren’t complete without a stay here. Truly.

nice people, nice place, clean restrooms. Great breakfast. Just wish there were out houses on the outer edges of the camp. I stayed in the non-elect tent area. Quite the hike to the restrooms and no real direct path (that I saw). However, that will not stop me from staying again. And longer the next time if I can. Thank you.

We arrived late, past the closing of the offices and forgot to inform them that we were doing that, but in the night drop box they had an envelope there with our name on it with instructions for our stay! It was great and relieved a lot of stress about being able to have a place to stay that night. It was dark but everything seemed tidy; the showers/bathrooms were clean.

We had a great time exploring the Hot Springs area and Mt. Rushmore! The campground was the perfect base camp for all of our activities.

The only issue I had, which forced me leave a day early, was the flies. No barn, paddock, or farm building I have been in or worked in had such monsterous numbers of flies. I suggest putting in an outside screened window in the bathrooms to assist w airflow for the smell.

A nice place to stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The place is not as shady as we had hoped for tent camping in the summer. The pool was a great amenity and the kids enjoyed it a number of times. An excellent place to stay when touring the Black Hills. We had one complaint. The bathhouse wasn't climate controlled & turned hot sauna and so we were sweating upon exiting the shower.

We fell in love with South Dakota. The KOA was a great spot for us as a home base. From this location, we visited the Badlands NP, Wind Cave NP, the Mammoth site, Cascade Falls, Sylvan Lake State Park and Jewel Cave NM. The KOA staff are very friendly and helpful with answers to local questions. The campground and bathrooms were super clean. The town of Hot Springs is super cute. We will be back!

Campground was well kept and customer service top notch. We had breakfast one day and it was just like going to a local restaurant. We enjoyed our stay very much.

NO Air Dryer in Restroom! Never before at a KOA. Parking space at tent sites eroded. need to be near level.

We stayed just 1 night. Very friendly staff, nice campsite, good coffee in the morning. Only downside was some road noise from highway 79

Very nice. But room for improvement. 1. Install a toilet in the tent camping area. It is a long walk to the main bathroom. It is also a dangerous walk in the dark with numerous trip hazards. 2. The walkways and roads should be marked with solar or low voltage lights. 3. Like a lot of older Koa the shower/restroom is small and outdated and in need of new modern space.


Thank you for your kind and helpful feedback. We do have plans for a family style restroom to be built in the northwest corner of the campground in the coming 1-2 years, as winter allows. Thank you very much for staying with us!

Nice and clean campground. Staff was very friendly. The ONLY downside is that the campground is right next to a busy road and it was very noisy for sleeping in a tent. My advice for tent camping is to bring those disposable earplugs.
Jun 05, 2018
Beautiful camping space, nice gravel area for tent set up. Friendly family owned. I would definitely camp here again!
