Great RV park off of the beaten path. This was our very first experience with a motorhome, and staying in an RV park. The people that we dealt with were very helpful, and courteous to make sure our stay was enjoyable. This Trail Ruts Golf Course and Larson Park Campground sit down very close to the Platte River and have several areas to ride bikes to see the historic Trail Ruts for the wagon trains that traveled the Oregon Trail many years ago.

When we called one of the owners of this park, he gave me a rate of $38.29 per night. We were charged $ 47.39 for a 50 amp site with full hook up service, plus $ 3.00 per night per child for our two grandchildren, for a total of $ 53.39 per night. This charge was not quoted to us on the phone. It was also promoted that the Custer / Mt. Rushmore KOA had a pool, a jumping pillow, and a Chuck Wagon breakfast everyday. It was never stated that the jumping pillow was an extra $ 3.00 per child, per day, and the breakfast was also extra. When confronted about the price discrepancy, the female partner of this KOA stated that her male counterpart does not know what he is talking about. He only answered the phone because she was busy. I checked the rates at a couple of other RV parks in Custer and was quoted between $ 32.00, and $38.00 for all 4 of us to stay per night. One of the comparable parks also had a pool and a water slide (water slide is an additional charge), and the other park had no pool. The RV sites here were very close together, and were not maintained very well. I think you can have a better experience in Custer South Dakota by not staying at this KOA.

We really enjoyed staying at Chief Hosa Campground for our last night of a great trip with our grandchildren. The restrooms were very clean, and the manager is on top of maintaining a top notch, rural campground. The grandchildren enjoyed the playground area, and could sit and watch the hummingbirds for hours. Thank you.
