On the positive side, we arrived after office hours and they had left our site number for us outside office. The showers and bathrooms were clean considering the over crowded condition of this site. Otherwise there is nothing about this KOA to commend itself. We have been in 8 campgrounds in past 2 wks travelling across country (including KOA) and... More

KOA Kamper Kabins are great for families trying to stay in the area on a budget but don't want the bother of a tent. Our cabin had a full sized bunk and 3 twin sized bunks and air conditioning which was very welcome after the heat of the badlands. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean and really nice, the... More

We arrived in our Class A and Great Dane, Lola, and the staff was fantastic!!! We did not have a reservation but they gave us a spot with a great view! We were very close to the Kanine Kamp and laundry/shower facility. The grounds were so nice, clean and well kept. All of the staff were great. We were able... More

The campground was ok. But evidently we were right next to a stock car race on Friday night! Even inside the RV with the A/C and TV on we could here the cars! The staff were very helpful, the store had all we needed, it was close to all the attractions, clean bathrooms. If it weren't for the race noise... More

Stayed here for three nights while visiting Rapid City and Mount Rushmore. Staff couldn't be more helpful - campsite was nice and other campers friendly. Camp store which stocks the items you may have forgotten, laundry, phone for free local calls, clean showers (although not too many), handy to highway to Mount Rushmore. Would definitely camp here again. Make sure... More

Our first initial experience with this KOA was when we called to make reservations using the one-time 10% coupon that came on their 2015 magazine. The lady on the phone had to keep texting her manager to see if they accepted it. I told her it was on their magazine and said no where that it was only valid at... More

We stayed here for a two-night stop on our trip to Montana. It was a perfect jumping off point into the Black Hills. This is a great family campground! Children were having a blast throughout the park-like setting. There is a great pet playground that our dog loved! The campground is adequately-staffed, which is not always the case at KOA's....

The good: very clean shower with plenty of pressure. Close to town. Friendly staff. The not so good: I don't know where KOA gets the nerve to charge what they do. I've stayed in countless campgrounds across the USA, this place is way overpriced for what you get. Our 33 ft motor home barely fit in our space. No sewer,... More

I read reviews that people complained that the KOA site was on a "race track" that the traffic noise was horrible. Well that is true if you pay for the sites that are the least desireable in the park, that is what you get, and that is what you should expect. If you pay a little more then you are... More

We stayed here while visiting Rushmore. While not close the drive was okay. The campground was typical of KOA. Spaces are close but we knew that. The shining feature to me were the bathrooms and showers. Very clean and comfortable. Staff was very nice.
