Yellowstone Park / West Entrance KOA, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $95.00
Overall Rating:      

We were excited to stay in this campground and reserved a spot early in 2017. We requested to be near the pool and restrooms with a pull through site. The site we got was a pull through but was far removed from the restrooms and the pool. It was located right in the middle of the densest area of the campground. We paid extra for a "deluxe" site but found that it was very narrow with a concrete patio, porch swing, and table. The site was so narrow that we couldn't open our awning due to the tree on the site. The firepit was located on a slope, right by the road, so it was impossible to sit by it. The site had not been cleaned so we faced an old marshmallow on a stick on the ground where we had to walk. The main sewer drop was broken so we had to rig our hose to run uphill to the second one. Our neighbors in the site above had to dump their tanks right above our patio and parked in the only space available which ended up being right by our firepit. Not their fault. The firewood purchased at the store was the most expensive we've ever seen. The pool was nice and indoors which is not common in the Yellowstone area but the dressing rooms were very small. The store is great with many Montana made items and a good grocery area. The staff was friendly. When we expressed dissatisfaction with our site and the overall conditions the owner/manager did give us a percentage refund which was appreciated. I don't know that we would stay here again although if we had been given a different site our experience probably would have been much better. We thought that our reserving far in advance would give us a better spot but it didn't work that way. We camped at Yellowstone Park / West Entrance KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't stay in the middle of the campground. There is a companion KOA campground just down the road that doesn't have as many amenities but might have more level or spacious sites. I'd check it out.

Mount Rushmore KOA, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great campground for kids! The playground area has numerous activities plus they bring in things like a climbing wall. The water slide is short but fun. There are two swimming pools. We went one afternoon to the one near the front and we were the only people there! The shops, ice cream shop, fudge, gift shop, etc. are nice amenities. The ability to rent pedal cars, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, etc. is a nice option. The campground is very close to Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park. Keystone is just a few miles away. Campsites are close but there is still room to sit outside and have a fire if you want. This is a large campground so lots of people but it didn't seem crowded or overly busy. It rained a lot when we were there so shade wasn't an issue but there aren't a lot of shade trees in the sites. The pancake breakfast is great! We camped at Mount Rushmore KOA in a Travel Trailer.
