    We stayed at this KOA for 2 nights while on vacation. After arrival, we were escorted to our site. Much to our dismay, the entire site was covered with standing water, and some of it smelled like raw sewage. I was disappointed, as we had...More

    As we're driving around the United States with our camper and pup, we went to this KOA. It definitely was a cut above other KOAs and centrally located between Mount Rushmore area and Custer State Park. This was the third time we've stayed there, the...More

    Only cost not included on activities is the bike rental and stables. All the food was reasonably priced. I believe the pancake breakfast was $3. Drinks and sides extra.
