3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this KOA for 2 nights while on vacation. After arrival, we were escorted to our site. Much to our dismay, the entire site was covered with standing water, and some of it smelled like raw sewage. I was disappointed, as we had been in the car for 11 hours, much of the time driving through the mountains.... More

As we're driving around the United States with our camper and pup, we went to this KOA. It definitely was a cut above other KOAs and centrally located between Mount Rushmore area and Custer State Park. This was the third time we've stayed there, the first without kids. All experiences were great! They have very well maintained bathroom/shower facilities, clean... More

We reserved our spot in advance and had no issues with the check-in or back-in processes. Although the person who checked us in highlighted where we could find wi-fi hot spots around the park, we were actually able to get a decent signal from our site with no real issues. Because we came prior to peak season, we did not... More

We just came back from a week long stay at Palmer Gulch. The front desk staff were the friendliest camp staff I have seen. They were very helpful in moving us to a different site due to some mud from the rain. We were in site 639 and in my opinion, it was the best site on the grounds. It... More

My family meets here every year for a reunion. It seems to go down hill a little each year. It's nice to have the pool etc.... But if u are going to charge $60 plus per night for an rv site, at least put some gravel down so people aren't having to slop around in mud when it rains. I... More

You can tell the way they make the sites that they care only about money. Our 32 foot RV ...with two slide outs got put into a site that was retarded. When I opened up the RV our slide outs were in the next site. If we wanted to have a fire we would have given the vehicle next to... More

Great site, beautifully set and a convenient 5 miles from Mt Rushmore National Monument. The staff were friendly, the site large with lots of activities for the whole family. There's a lovely walk along a serene pond, which is especially stunning early in the morning or just before sunset. The restrooms were clean but the camping kitchen, while it looked... More

Beautiful location in the Black Hills but the campground was sadly lacking in several areas (especially for the price paid). Chose this campground because it offered free wi-fi (necessary for my job) but it did not work while we were there. The roads to our site were very rough - yes there had been some rain, but there was no... More

It's nice to have the extras like a pool, splash-pad for the kids, pizzeria, and even a wine-tasting room, but we weren't around much to enjoy the campground (we were out and about exploring the Black Hills!) At the end of the day, we just wanted a little privacy (campsites, especially the RV ones are on top of each other)... More
