I liked the KOA at Kennebec. The bathroom was newly remodeled and the showers were nice. There was an epic storm the night we stayed, so I'm glad that we were protected by the trees at the camp site.

They were more than helpful. We were out riding and exploring the area when a sudden 70 mph storm with hail came through the camp - they called us and they help preserve our tent by putting up our rain fly - so we had minimal damage while we sheltered in place where we were at. Great camp hosts.

Our site had standing water in the morning after an overnight shower. But very nice and helpful staff.

We only camped one night and it was super quiet and peaceful. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Pool wasn’t working but we were swimming anyway. Called and was quickly helped to reserve a spot that night.

Very nice place to stop overnight, and the owners were very nice.

Quiet and clean! Nothing open because of the virus, but just needed an overnight stop.

Very small campground situated in the perfect place for your trip to or from the Black Hills. Not a lot of facilities, but clean whatsoever. Friendly staff. Beautiful nature. Quiet. Bring your own food, because the town is very small and doesn't have a lot of choices for where to eat!

we stayed one night, and made new friends.. I got to share the little knowledge of being a new camper with them as they are new to the camping world! Thanks for a nice site!

Not much staff. Only stay if you must. It is just okay.

This KOA was greatly overpriced. We were charged an extra $4 for each child but there were no child services for kids due to covid. It’s a tired, run-down KOA. But charges are similar to the Palmer gulch resort KOA. Very disappointing. But they has better WiFi than most.

Very nice park with a friendly staff.

Convenient to highway and very nice people. With 2019 flood and 2020 COVID-19, they have had a tough two years. I applaud their tenacity.

The manager was very sweet and kind but the entire campground is in need of some significant repairs and maintenance. It was fine for an overnight stay.

I liked how they were following the coronavirus guidelines. They had a campground between mine and someone else. Very friendly guy at the front. I also liked that there was sanatizer next to the door so you could use it as you left.

We have a large RV and sites were large enough. On the map it said there was a playground, but there was no playground. Pool was closed due to covid and it was expensive for the location and state of the campground. Seemed like an older campground, not similar to other KOA's we have stayed at. Employee was friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the playground was destroyed in the flooding we experienced last year. We have bids out to replace it.

Friendly staff, super easy. Thanks

Staff was very nice

you are charging for full hoookup without providing cable. Staff was lovely both in person and on phone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry about the cable, but there is no cable company that serves our area. We do provide attachment to our digital antennae at all full hookup sites.

Beautiful Thursday night. 70's and comfortable. The hosts were great. We got to see wild turkeys walk right by our site in the morning. Couple drawbacks, (not their fault) trucks going by 24 hours a day using their jake brakes, pool closed, store closed.

It looked like they were trying to get opened up after being shut down for a long period of time. The grounds needed attention. The only personnel we saw were two men working on the swimming pool. It rained very hard the night before we arrived and there was muddy everywhere. It was ok for an overnight stay.

Very Clean. Easy check in process.

Nice property but needs a lot of work. Even tho South Dakota was not on lockdown, restrooms, showers n laundry were closed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While it is true that South Dakota was not on "lockdown" there were, and continue to be, town ordinances that require the closure of our restrooms, showers, and laundry.

Terrible place. Falling apart. Nasty. Surprised this is still a koa. Not the quality we expect from koa. Wont visit again.

We came in after hours. We found the late check-in board with our name, lot number, wifi code, and map on a small half page. We are used to a nice two page pamphlet with safety guidelines and local info. Our site was un-level, firepite full of leaves, and the entire campground looked like it was abandoned for a couple years. We were very disappointed in this KOA and will NOT return.

Lovely little pull off from the Interstate. Very quiet, with well-groomed grounds. Friendly (owner?) met us as we drove in and led us to easy access pull through site. Easy access off the Interstate. Less than a mile with nice wide turns. Gas station at the entrance to the Interstate that has a diesel pump with no cover. Great spot to spend the night.

Certainly not a world class resort but a good stop for a night. The campground was serviceable and adequate. Friendly staff.

Just an overnight. Always friendly. It’s a little rough right now, still recovering from the spring flooding. Hopefully they will be back up to full strength for next year. Been here several times, will stop by several more.

Thank you David, always a pleasure to see you. Hope you are able to stop by again next year.

This kampground suffered a devastating flood last May, so it was understandable it was lacking much of what we had seen in the past, though the great attitude endures. "We have a busy winter ahead of us," we were told. We're looking forward to seeing how they bounce back. Best of luck!

I liked this campground and hope to stay again. It was a very nice lady that took us to our spot, and it was so quiet and peaceful. Even though it was convenient to the highway, there was no highway noise; just birds and the sigh of the wind. Little bitty town had a little Main Street across from the county courthouse building. I did my morning walk up and down the streets of this quiet little town. Hope to stay again. Thank you and I hope you continue to recover from the floods last year, and now COVID-19 this year! Tough couple of years you’ve got going here. Wish you the best and hope to see you on the way back through!
