You can't and won't go wrong by staying at this exceptional facility! We found everything perfect at this top notch campground. Friendly, courtesy, and helpful owners/staff. Unfortunately for us this was the first campground we stayed at during our family summer trip '09 that took us through Iowa - Nebraska - Wyoming - South Dakota - Minnesota and it was by far the best of all the campgrounds we stayed at during our vacation (second was ironically the last night at an exceptional KOA in Spearfish, SD; we'll make a posting for that campground on this web site next), but Pine Grove RV Park is approximately $20 a night less than the franchised-chain campgrounds! Clean and well maintained beyond comparison.
Here is one of those almost perfect campgrounds, but the bar is set high if it is a KOA along with the high fees. In the case of Spearfish KOA this is a fine example of where expectations, fees, facilities, and services are all in-line and acceptable. Unbelievably friendly owners/managers. All aspects of the Spearfish KOA are impeccable other than the fees perhaps being high or not in the budget for some if not many campers (one reason, but certainly not the main reason, a large family such as ours camps is to be more economic when traveling and vacationing). The stout KOA fee structure is the only negative especially when we start getting whacked with the extra person fees on top of the nightly fees. Most definitely the place to camp if en route along the I-90 corridor through South Dakota to other locals for example in Wyoming or Montana,but would also be a perfect place to camp if you were staying in the Black Hills for a weekend or week to see all the incredibly beautiful sites of the Black Hills, SD.
