We booked one of the newer deluxe cabins for one night as part of our road trip stop to the Badlands, and we were very happy with our choice. It's a little drive from the park, but worth the shade amd amenities. The unit was very clean had everything we needed except for linens, towels, and kitchen plates and utensils,...

Great amenities: pool, clean bathrooms, convenient location for camp sink. The camp sites are rather small, and we had a large Boy Scout group next to us our first night. The owners were very flexible with us and our changing plans: We started off with reservations with a cabin, but changed without hassle or fees to a tent. During our...

If you are traveling through Badlands National Park with a trailer/tent, you must use this KOA. It has tons of trees offering shade, where the other trailer stops we saw were more in the scorching sun. This place is windy...but that really helps keep the heat bearable. The pool was nice and cool, and our little one loved the playground...

Stayed here on our next to final night of a 2 week trip out west. The cabin was great but we were definitely not informed on linens & sheets for a nights stay. We were under the assumption that it was $20.00 for linens for the unit and that sounded fair and not having to carry sheets & linens for...

We stayed here in a 40 ft. motorhome. We wanted to watch Nascar on Saturday nite, holiday weekend, staff was very helpful in getting us situated for satellite as their park has alot of trees. Pool seemed well appreciated as it was hot for the July 4th weekend. Hookups all worked well, nice and level. This park is close, 5...

We stayed one night here as we traveled through the area and would absolutely come back. We didn't utilize much of the facility as we spent the whole day in Badlands Nat'l Park (and a lot of the late night too...go to the Night Sky program!) and then checked out right away in the morning. The staff that checked me...

This was a perfect overnight stay for seeing the Badlands! Nice level spot, clean restrooms/showers and laundry room. Friendly staff. Great breakfast in the morning before we left! The Badlands were awesome! We really enjoyed our short stay there!

This is one of the nicest KOAs where I've camped. Lots of mature trees, very well kept grounds, not on a busy road. Location allows for a positive camping experience. We stayed here because it was close to the Badlands (but the campgrounds in the Badlands NP did not seem to have any shade!). People are very nice and helpful....

We stayed for two night in a cabin with a bathroom. I loved the fact the owners were the people who checked us in. They were very helpful and friendly. This KOA is smaller then others. I love that! The bathrooms and laundry rooms were clean and well taken care of. Kids had fun at the playground, mini golf and...
