My family was here for 6 days, Great loction to all you come to see. Wonderful acitivites at camp for kids big and small. Clean, friendly. Not great Wi-fi but YOUR ON VACATION!!! Heard about green pools, but they were fine just the pool walls are slighly stained. Resturant was a little pricey, but local snack shops and wine tasting were great!

We rented cabin 19 for our extended family of 10. The cabin is dark, they should paint or replace paneling. But overall the facility was good. We had 5 kids under the age of 11, so much for them to do. It was labor day weekend so it was very busy, but still very peaceful and relaxing. All staff encountered were great. We would do it again, but maybe get 2 smaller cabins with AC. This one did not have AC.

You need to understand what the Lodge at Palmer Gulch is. It's a lodge that sits on a campground property. It's not as updated as a modern hotel, but the rooms are decent and it offers a family the opportunity to take advantage of the Palmer Gulch activities without having to camp. The campground is a KOA with 2 pools, mini-golf, horse stables (I highly recommend you take a ride) and other fun stuff. You could not ask for a better location if you want to explore Rushmore or Custer State Park. Yes, the staff can be grumpy, and yes, the facilities need an update. But if your family is looking for a home base while in the black hills, this place is perfect.

We stayed two nights in August and the location was perfect for all of the local attractions. Plenty to keep the kids busy and would recommend the chuckwagon dinner they run out of their location. We stayed in Cabin 19. Plenty of room, but definitely rustic. Slight musty smell throughout the cabin. Did not bother us for our stay though.

We stayed in the lodge for one night after visiting Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore, it was a great location for these trips. The lodge was nice and the restaurant was very good for lunch.
We didn't have a chance to use the pool or slide due to a very bad thunderstorm that washed a lot of dirt and stone on to the campground roads, and contained a good amount of hail. They were closed so that the area could be cleaned up (which they did quickly).
