Excellent KOA

This KOA is set in beautiful surroundings. Sites are amongst trees, easy in/out. I arrived in the middle of a downpour, but that did not deter the hosts from showing me the site. Restrooms were clean, very nice area for dogs.

Great place to stay a few days

This campground has just about every thing you might need. It is well maintained. The staff is very gracious. Cafe makes great breakfast.

Last year they removed one campsite between every other site leaving very spacious sites with vehicle parking.

This campground is a short distance from Custer which has an Ace Hardware, grocery stores and friendly citizens. Crazy Horse and Mt Rushmore are 30 minutes away.

Great KOA

Friendliest people ever! Beautiful, wooded sites. Flat spacious sites. Bathrooms at the back of the park were clean. Women’s shower was fine: one regular & one handicapped accessible. Hubby said men’s lacked hooks to keep clothes dry.
