DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS TO THIS CAMPGROUND….. GPS does not work in this area as we found out the hard way. Nor does your cell phone. It’s late, raining and theres low fog and the GPS took us in through the service entrance, which meant very wet, muddy dirt narrow roads. Thankfully hubby is a boss when it comes... More

I was very pleased with our stay here. The staff was very kind to us throughout our 4 days. They even came in a raging snow storm to reset our electricity when when accidentally tripped our breaker. The Wifi was spotty, and we had to reset a few times to get it to work, but that didn't detract from our... More

Each of my kids got to bring one of their friends on vacation and then one of my friends came as well. We stayed in a cabin that was plenty big and had enough beds for everyone. I loved that the kids could go exploring, swimming and playing while me and my friend could hang out around the fire in... More

We stayed in one of the large cabins with a group of five and had plenty of room to spare. Behind our cabin was a neat rock formation and a little picnic fire pit area that we made dinner on one night. There are so many places to stay here whether it be the KOA campground, the cabins or the... More

This was our third stay at the Mount Rushmore KOA and we’ll continue to come back when we visit the Black Hills. The KOA is conveniently located close to many of the attractions in the area such as Mount Rushmore, the 1880’s Train, Cosmos Mystery Area and Crazy Horse – just to name a few! The staff welcomes visitors by... More

I had not stayed at a KOA campground for a number of years. I was pleasantly surprised. We got there late, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. The camp site was clean. The overall atmosphere of the campground is friendly and safe. The breakfast at the lodge was tremendous and very reasonable. I will return.

We stayed at this campground the first of September. We made a three day reservation and wished we could have left after the first night. We checked in late about 1030p, the girl at the desk did not have a clue. She said she did not know anything about campers. After paying for my three nights she gave me a... More
