This was the nicest KOA we ever stayed at. We had reserved and paid for 6 days and were excited when we arrived. I had requested a concrete pull through for my 40' class A motorhome and was told my site was paved. Within 3 hours, we got a refund for 5 days and went elsewhere. First, our spot was... More

This place had it all! Where do I begin; 2 swimming pools, restaurants, hot tubs, splash pad, bike rentals, utv rentals, and many more features. We took advantage of the deluxe cabin and it was fantastic. Sleeping for 6, great wood decor, full bathroom, mini kitchen, big deck, very own patio furniture, grill and fire pit. Also featured 2 TVs,... More

Our rig 35ft Class A with 12 ft trailer. Total rig length 51 ft. The positive side of this campground is that there are a lot of activities for kids and there is beautiful scenery. Now the bad! I start by saying we paid $138.17 per night including tax. This was a "premiere" full hook up 50amp site with a... More

Stayed at Palmer Gulch many times. Booked family reunions and personal. This time our cabin was absolutely horrible. Faulty wiring, dirty beyond what you can imagine, mice etc. More than happy to help when booking but if you have an issue it will not get addressed. We stayed August 4th and 5th. We tried to laugh and call it an... More

First the good. Great Black Hills location. Plenty for kids to do. Bath facilities are fine. People were very nice. Now the bad. Very crowded and cramped despite the size. Their free Wi-Fi doesn't work (despite their claims). No cable or satellite available---no cell service for that matter. We listened to XM radio which is available and watched videos at... More

Staff was friendly, bathrooms clean, but the campsites are so packed in that your awnings almost touch the next unit. AT&T cell service worked in parts of the CG. Verizon, no service. Power was 120v water pressure good. Internet was limited to checking emails. Laundry room was clean and large. They had several on the property. If you have or... More

If you like a lot of walking to all amenities then this is the campground for you, not to mention the washrooms are not convenient for camping sites so hopefully you don't find you need to use one in the middle of the night. They do have a lot of amenities....a lot (it's like s small town). What you don't... More

We stayed at Palmer Gulch for what ended up being three nights. We initially made a reservation for one night, intending to travel on to Yellowstone but ran out of time. When we got to Palmer Gulch, the site that we were given (I believe it was 507) was totally unacceptable. I'd asked for a pull through for our mini-travel... More

We stayed at this KOA with 3 kids, ages 12, 13 and 14. We had a two room camping cabin. CONS:The double bed mattress is so hard we put a sleeping bag over it and it still felt like we were sleeping on the wood board underneath, otherwise the cabins are nice to have. The resort does pack people in... More
