Wasn’t impressed...

Gets one star for being right at Badlands. Otherwise had a horrible experience which tends to happen at KOAs. People were rude when we got there early and tried to check in. Told us no spots were open yet and that we would just have to come back later. Went back an hour later and got put in a spot…

Very clean KOA

Bathrooms are very clean & there are personal showers. Sometimes there can be a line but we didn’t find a problem. We enjoyed our stay & the location was on the edge of the badlands, nothing too far. I would stay here again! The owners were very nice to us

Nice little hole in the wall!

Very friendly spot. A little ways away from the main viewing of the Bad lands NP but great place to get away from the busy park.
