The Lodge at Palmer Gulch is part of the Palmer Gulch KOA, which includes RV sites, camping sites, and cabins. Our family reunion was held here. My husband and I stayed at the lodge, which was OK. We had a room with a small balcony, which was pleasant. There is a continental breakfast, made up of bagels, juice and cereal that is complimentary for those staying at the Lodge. Overall, the Lodge experience is adequate---nothing fancy---at $165 a night. The Ponderosa Restaurant breakfast was somewhat greasy (deep-fried hash browns), and we didn't try it for any other meals. Other members of the family stayed in the cabins. If you are there in the summer, make sure you get a cabin with air conditioning. It is my understanding that some of them don't have A/C, and that would be horrible. There is a lot to do if you are a family. There is a swimming pool, a place for tubing, rentals for golf carts ($40 a day) and ATVs ($400 a day), horse-back riding, etc. There is a great view of Harney Peak from the campground and it is relatively close to Mount Rushmore. This place can get pretty jammed, and you definitely will not feel like you are out in the wilderness.
