Campground Reviews

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!

Always nice to stay with you guys---too bad the flood you had has made life challenging for you. I no you will overcome and if your customers would continue to come thus helping you rebuild!

It is hard to give this park a rating as it was destroyed earlier this year by the flood. The owners were very nice but the park was a mess. The restrooms were clean and the water hot but the fixtures were old. There was severe rust on the shower stalls (not caused by the flood). I cannot imagine how much work it will take to get this open and fully functional in the spring.

Pet park needed mowed, weeds off of fence. Rest of grass in park was low, even around park. Weeds were the main makeup of ground cover. I canceled rv park 20 miles up IS 90 for this dog park. I was not pleased

A little rough, but not bad considering the flood. The 110 v receptacles are in bad shape and need to be replaced. Everything is clean and the camp hist is a great guy. I’m looking forward to seeing the camp after flood recovery is complete!

Unfortunately they had been flooded and we were unaware before booking our stay. No laundry service and the grounds just needed a good cleaning. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The whole campground just not up to the standards of most KOAs.

We have stayed at this KOA several times. It has always been a nice place to stay. They have worked hard to repair the campground after the Labor Day flood. Ever though they could of stayed closed they were open. With hard work and lots of willpower they will be up and running 100% in not long. Good luck and God bless.

Good location between Sioux Falls and Rapid City. Not much to see around Kennebec. The campground has lots of pull thru. The gentleman who runs the camp is very friendly.

Great night sleep, very nice campground

It was a nice visit. The owner was great.

Park was damaged in spring floods. Park reopened with limited facilities. Super friendly owners have finally received insurance settlement and will be repairing this winter (weather permitting). Park is confidently located for east/west transit on I-90. We only spent 1 night on a Sunday, so we did not go into town (pop 284). We will stop again next time through.

One night stay on our way to Clarinda, Iowa. Park still cleaning up after flooding in March.... lots of flying insects. Could not recommend this park for extended stay but satisfactory for overnight stay.

This KOA is definitely not on my list of favorites, although it was OK for a 1 night stay. The grass was long and the facility just looked like it was not well kept up. The gravel roads and sites had lots of bigger rocks that made it somewhat hard to walk on. But the sites were nicely sized and the staff seemed very nice and helpful.

Flooding has hurt them. They have some work to do.

A wonderful story in perseverance after the flood. I give these owners an A+

Fine for an overnight, but that's about it. Given the nightly rate, we weren't expecting a high-end resort, but certainly something more to KOA standards. The dog park was overgrown and buggy; lawns were patchy and uneven. KOA store shuttered; check-in handled in a KOA Kabin. But! We were welcomed warmly and escorted to our site, which was plenty long and comfortable for one night.

Considering the campground was flooded in the spring, it is amazing that they got back up and running this season. Hosts were very nice and friendly, gave a discount since not all services were available. Restrooms were clean. Too bad we didn’t get to see the true campground, wish them well on their recovery.

Grounds are uneven rock as are the sites. Grounds are not maintained. Weeds everywhere. Although space was said to have cable, there was no cable. Bathrooms looked clean but very dated, Toilet seats are old, mirrors are placed so I can’t use them. Showers are stalls so you can visit with your neighbor if you want. WIFI worked well, though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your comments about the grounds are somewhat accurate, our flooding this year left portions of the grounds unmow-able. These areas are closed to customers and will be repaired as soon as the ground will accept heavy machinery. To clarify, we do not have cable, nor do we advertise that we do. If you saw something that says we do, you must have been looking at old information.

The ground was very soft and stabilizers sank into the dirt Obviously they had a flood earlier in the year and are getting things back into shape Good luck, nice people run it
Sep 05, 2019
We very much enjoyed our quick overnight stay at this campground. The campground hosts were extremely friendly and we enjoyed our conversation with them. The site was good and one of the few campgrounds where the internet was usuable. They are trying hard to recover from the flood and we wish the best for them. They have a long road ahead of them.

Needs some help because of the flood. Not much of any communication with anyone.

Poorly kept grounds but friendly staff
Sep 01, 2019
The staff are really friendly. If you have an RV or travel trailer, this a good o ernight stop. The campground was flooded earlier in 2019 so the pool is not open, nor the laundry room. We were given a discount because of this. I'm glad I stayed here because they need the money for repairs. Small river borders the property so I assume they could not get floodl insurance.

Unfortunately the campground is still recovering. Friendly staff and worked for overnight stay�
Aug 31, 2019
Staff great. Koa was a bug infested dump. Dog yard, pool, all weed overgrown. Sad.
Aug 31, 2019
Flood damaged. Terrible condition. They should be more forthcoming with the condition when you make your reservation

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

To set the record straight, you did not make a reservation, you were a drop in. You were informed of the conditions and had the opportunity to check the park out before staying. I am sorry you stay was so bad, I wish you had said something to us about it. Perhaps we could have helped.

The cap grout wads not rebuild after a flood in the spring . Hope they well be ready to next season � br steen from Danmark

We made reservations online. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and provided with a schedule of fun community activities including pizza night, an ice cream social, and a kiddie train ride. The pool was sparkling clean, site level and dog park spacious. Highly recommended!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No sure which campground this is reviewing but we do not have a pizza night, ice cream social or kiddie train.

Nice small park. Due to circumstances beyond their control, the park is starting over from scratch. Hopefully insurance comes thru so they can carry on.
Aug 25, 2019
Pool out of service. Damaged buildings, Temporary registration in what looked like a KOA Kamping Cabin. Campground needs work.
Aug 24, 2019
Friendly staff. We felt bad they were dealing with the aftermath of bad weather, however they were working hard to improve things.
Aug 24, 2019
Convienent to highway, quiet, good midway stop, recovering from recent flood
Aug 23, 2019
The camp was close to I-90 that was a plus. I know they had a problem with flooding was told when I made reservation. The site was okay, had water, sewer, 50amp service. Cable was good. My biggest problem was mosquitos. Was the first camp I could not sit out at night and walking the dog was miserable. There was a lot of standing water which probably made mosquitos worse. Hope they fix this.

Still recovering from terrible flood Memorial weekend. Pool and laundry still not operative. Very friendly staff
Aug 21, 2019
no laundry

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is true, our laundry was taken out by the spring flood, a fact you were made aware of when you made the reservation. You also received a discounted rate due to our lack of amenities.

Glad they’re open after flooding. Need to remove cable tv from KOA book.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The only cable company in the area went out of business last summer. I have verified that the 2019 KOA directory does not show us as having cable. Perhaps you are looking at an older version of the book? Updated versions are available at any KOA campground.
Aug 17, 2019
Owner is very nice and has faced numerous problems with the flooding. KOA needs to assist in the reconstruction of the facilities and park area.
Sep 06, 2019
Nice campground to stay at, when it's up and running. They have had a bad time of it with mother nature flooding them out.

This is a very nice well ran Campground, with the kind of owners that will treat you like you treat them. The layout of the campground is very good it was very easy to park our 45-foot fifth wheel. Park was quiet slept all night with no problem. Stopped here on the way to the Sturgis bike rally. It is right off the interstate easy in easy out.

This was probably a very nice park before it flooded. Currently (8/11/19) the pool and all buildings are out of commission, dog park very overgrown, flies and mosquitos pretty bad and roads super muddy. Hope for speedy recovery.
