Oscoda / Tawas KOA, Oscoda, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

This park has made several additions/upgrades to activities especially those for kids. It is a great family campground. Sites are decently roomy with some large trees for partial shade. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Our site was level and hookups easily accessible. We were on a 'Buddy' site with other family members (Sites 8 & 9) which was great. There are a few other buddy sites in various parts of the park. It's a nice option if you are traveling with other friends or family. We enjoy camping here! We camped at Oscoda / Tawas KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Oscoda and Tawas are nearby towns with services, shops, grocery stores, etc. There are several nearby beaches and a state park with a lighthouse.

Sioux Falls KOA, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is right by the highway which makes it convenient for one night camping but there is some highway noise at night. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Our site was short for us as we didn't want to unhook the truck since we were there for only one night. To get into the site and not sit out into the road it meant that the hookups were a long way off. There was no way we could hook up the cable and had to use an additional hose for the sewer. Bathroom was directly across from us which was great. Facilities were clean and neat. Laundry room was great except the change machine would only take $1 or $5 bills. By the time we knew that, the office was closed. Frustrating. There are no fire rings but you can rent a portable fire stand or use your own. Pool is not huge but nice. Decently stocked store. We camped at Sioux Falls KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is huge and caters to families with kids. As a result the facilities - bathrooms & showers - get a lot of use and reflects that by the end of a day. Overall the facilities are well maintained and clean. Maintenance people are always around and busy taking care of things. The Kid Zone is a lot of fun for kids with many activities. We camped nearby so our grandson could come and go to the various areas - pool, jumping pillow, games area, etc. When we first arrived our site was not good. It was wet due to the area drainage so we couldn't even use the fire pit. The staff did a good job of addressing our concerns and offered us the option of moving a few spaces down on the same row which we did. We were pleased to see that, after we left the wet site, the staff came in with gravel and did a lot to make the site better for the next camper. There was no cell phone coverage at all in the campground. The campground information warns people ahead of time so it was not a surprise. If you don't have kids and want a quieter site, choose one away from the Kid Zone. However, if you do travel with kids, I recommend getting a site beside or behind Kid Zone so you can keep an eye on your children and they can go back and forth easily between your site and the fun stuff. The pancake breakfast is a pretty good deal and the food is good. We camped at Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We were unhappy with the Lodge dining. We went about 7:45 pm to eat dinner and they took our name to be called later even though there were several tables completely empty. The lady taking our names said the kitchen "was slammed" with a big party so they needed to get caught up. We ended up not eating there as it seemed expensive and near closing and we were generally unhappy about the long wait.

Buffalo Crossing RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is right beside the Grizzly & Wolf Center and the IMAX theater. They offer discounted tickets for movies at the theater! The location of this campground is great! You can walk to most of the shops, restaurants, and services in West Yellowstone. There are not a lot of amenities - no pool, camp store, fire rings, or playground. It's somewhat like a parking lot but still comfortable and well designed. There are easily accessible bathrooms and a laundry facility (some of the machines did not work however). The sites - and the interior roads - were gravel but very clean. Sites are decently wide with accessible hookups. the entrance to Yellowstone National Park is literally around the corner and the ranger station is within site and on the same block as the campground. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Buffalo Crossing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has no activities or spaces for kids to play outside and it's not really a campground where you'll want to sit outside to enjoy nature! However, all of West Yellowstone is a short walk so the convenience factor makes this a good option for a place to stay.

Renfro Valley KOA, Mount Vernon, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night on our way further South. Information was left at the office for late check in, and we were able to find our site and set up easily. Site was gravel and grass and was level. The hookups were within easy reach. Lots of trees and shade. Staff in the store and out in the park were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Many of the sites are 'buddy' sites meaning that two RVs would face one another with a shared grassy area between with tables and fire pits. This is a great option for families or friends traveling together but wouldn't be so great with strangers. The campground was not at all full on our visit so there was plenty of space, and no sharing with a 'buddy' on this trip! Other facilities - pool, playground, jumping pillow, etc. looked well maintained although we did not have the opportunity to check these areas out in depth. Restrooms at the main office were very clean and looked renovated. A substantial number of cable channels were offered. We didn't have the need to use WiFi for our short stay. The store had limited grocery items but it was somewhat early in the season so there might be more later when visitation is higher. There is a narrow, steep road entering the campground but it was no trouble getting up and into the park. We camped at Renfro Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Renfro Valley music performance area is maybe only a mile away from this campground. A bit further towards the freeway there are fast food places, gas stations, and a few other services.

Yellowstone Park / West Gate 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 Gate KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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 at Palmer Gulch, 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!
