“Very nice KOA”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Worth the deive to it. It is a ways out in the hills but the scenery is great. Would stay again. Close to Mt. Rushmore and about 20 miles to Rapid City. Lots of activities at campground for kids. Tent sites are up on high ground so water not an issue.

We were there for only one night (tried for more) it was amazing for the kids cannot say enough about how much there was to do. This was extremely close to mount rushmore but would be a perfect koa for the middle of nowhere as it should be a destination all its own. The kids did not want to go anywhere else or see anything else best review ypu can get in my house (or RV)

We stayed in one of the RV Deluxe campsites and were very happy with our site, some of the other areas looked like maybe there were too many campsites too close together. It is definitely a place to stay if you are traveling with children. We liked the pool by the horse stables better than the other one, not quite as full. We also loved the horseback riding opportunity and also seeing the horses run towards the stables in the morning and back to the pastures at night, it was really neat to watch. Had soft ice cream from the ice cream shop almost every day! Everyone was friendly. Well worth the price for this campground if you have children! We also took the shuttle to Mt. Rushmore one evening, well worth it and the bus driver was very nice. Location was very good for all the other places we wanted to visit. Only a few miles from Mt. Rushmore.

This is the coolest KOA ever for kids.

Water slide, jump pillow, 2 pools with hot tubs, mini golf, all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, panning for gold and "gems", horseback riding and a splash park!

This campground is very close to Mount Rushmore, Hill City, the 1880 Steam Train, the Needles Highway, Custer State Park, Crazy Horse Monument and so much more!

We just stayed at this amazing campsite a couple of nights ago and were blown away by everything that it offered! This was our first KOA experience and it will not be our last. I could not believe the amount of activities that were offered. The washrooms and showers were in immaculate condition and that means the world to people who are tenting! A beautiful campsite in a beautiful area. We did not want to leave! We will definitely be back and will be recommending this to all of our Canadian friends who are heading south!

We stayed in the Lodge and LOVED it! The only thing I would have changed about our trip would be to plan a day to hang out at the lodge with our children (4 ranging in age from 9-2). Great place to stay right in the middle of the Black Hills! The water does come from a well and had lots of "minerals" in it during our stay; the yellow water was a little hard to swallow. If I had known about the water I would have packed more drinking water.

If you are looking for an initial time" roughing it" on a camping trip, this would be a great place to start. Plenty of showers, toilets, and kids. Over the top: water slides , 2 pools, rock climbing wall, expresso bar, kitchens, BBQ pits, all you can eat pancake tents, 70 horses for rent, gift shops , convenience store AND daily wine tastings. If you can't handle this, camping is not for you. Have fun
