This KOA park is one of the most beautiful we have ever stayed in. It is located in a wooded area along the White River on the edge of the Badlands. The sites are gravel, long, and have a nice grassy area around each one. There are a variety of sites including full hook up with pull-throughs, cable and Wi-Fi. The grounds are immaculate and there are lot of amenities including a pool, playground and pet area. Finding a shaded spot in the Badlands is quite a bonus and you are only 4 miles from the entrance to the national park. The staff is quite helpful. We had a problem with our cable hook-up and two maintenance men came to our site within minutes to help us fix the problem. We only stayed here for one night due to commitments elsewhere, but we would definitely return again and plan to extend our stay.
This campground is located in a beautiful pine forest on the edge of Custer, SD. The sites are fairly wide and the pull-through sites are level and long. The back-in sites, which we used in our 5th wheel, are a bit tight and a bit unlevel in some locations. The Internet is strong unless everyone is home in their campers using the signal. Water pressure at our site was low but sufficient. The office staff was pleasant and quite helpful. Bathrooms and laundry rooms are immaculate. The rate posted reflects the Good Sam's discount. We would definitely stay here again but be more specific with our site request ensuring a more level site. The campgrounds are very family-friendly. The large play area for children is located away from the camping area, ensuring a quiet surrounding.
I would have given this park a higher rating had it not been for the horrible experience we had with our reservation. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and checked in at the front gate. It was at this point that we learned all sites were first come and that not one particular site had been reserved for us. We were told to make our way down to the A lot and choose a spot that was open. However, when we got to A, there were no spots open. We immediately called the office and were told that the two reservation systems had overbooked the park and that we were out of luck. The office did not seem to care about our problem and explained that a large group was coming in and had priority over our reservation. We then ran into one of the housekeeping staff, who took an interest in our predicament and proposed putting us on a row of RV sites that had been closed due to sewer problems. She thought our one rig wouldn't task the system. The park office agreed to this solution and we ended up staying the week in a lovely site with full hook up. The park amenities including the heated pool and spa were nice. WiFi is only available at the clubhouse. We ended up having a nice stay, but the attitude of the park staff (excluding housekeeping staff) needs improving. If you decide to stay here, confirm that a spot has been reserved for you.
We arrived here on Feb 3 expecting to stay for 10 days and ended up staying for 6 weeks. This RV park is located on the edge of the Saguaro West National Park which means you have excellent hiking trails right off the edge of the park. The howling coyotes were a magnificent desert experience. The office building was very nice, and they offered weekly activities such as music shows and hiking trips for a nominal cost. The campsites were gravel and level with a lot of room between spaces. The park has nice landscaping and is very well maintained. The office staff was very accommodating and worked hard to make our experience wonderful. The WiFi connection was OK at the campsite and great at the office. I can't say enough about the location. We are road bikers and found the proximity to the Tucson bike trails perfect to meet our needs. We would definitely stay here again.
