This is a nice RV park with level sites and well placed utilities. There is a grass area between the sites with a picnic table on concrete pad. Its far enough away from the Interstate to be very quiet at night. There are some permanent sites here but seem to be well cared for. The laundry room is clean and large. We would stay here again.

When we pulled into this campground the owner immediately got us into our space. Later his wife came to collect the rest of the money for our weekly stay. It was a very efficient check in process. The owners are very friendly and even came to our site on the day of our departure to say "goodbye". Our site was level and a bit narrow but had a nice grassy area with freshly painted picnic table. This is a small park so not a lot of amenities but very nicely maintained. The owner came to connect the cable tv which had over 70 channels. Only one washer and dryer but $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry. We would stay here again.

We stayed in site #30 which was really too small for our 30' fifth wheel. The electrical outlet was in a good location and I had a choice of water spigots to use. One was about 30' through bushes on the left and the other one was about 30' to the right that had to go under the RV and hook up at the adjoing site. Our left slide pushed up against tree limbs and the awning on the other side could only be put out about 4' before hitting a tree. This site may have been o.k. if a few small trees and bushes had been either removed or trimmed. I made reservations months in advance and wasn't asked to give a deposit. My mistake was not calling a couple weeks before we arrived to confirm because I got the feeling that, upon arrival, we were not expected. Some sites down by the river are very nice. The dump area was easy to access and worked well. This campground, although a little rough around the edges is in a great location.

This was a very nice campground in the middle of, what seemed like, nowhere. The sites are long and located on a hillside but there is adequate space between the sites due to the layout. Our site needed a little bit of leveling. The utilities were well placed and adequate. The laundry room only had two washers and dryers but was not very busy. The views were terrific especially from the hilltop that can be accessed from a small trail. The check in process was friendly and quick. We even got a goodbye wave as we were leaving. Very nice people. We would stay here again.

This was a very nice Forest Service campground. We had reservations for site 16 which had electric service and some shade. All the sites had a fire pit, grill, picnic table and lantern stand. There was a nice trail around the lake. Other than that, the only other trails were snowmobile and cross country ski trails that weren't really walking trails but would do. The pit toilets were the cleanest and nicest smelling pit toilets I have ever seen (and smelled). The gravel road around the campground can get a little dusty. One of the nice things about this place was that all four days of our visit the temperature was in the low 70s while down in Dayton and Ranchester it was in the upper 90s. The climb from Dayton is steep but there are a number of pull-outs, both uphill and downhill.

The people here are very nice and informative. This park is away from the Interstate so it is very quiet. The utilities were adequate and the site was extra long and level, which was nice. My only issue is that the sites are really narrow. My slide out was right next to the neighbor's picnic table on one side and my awning almost touched the Motorhome on the other side. Still, it was a nice place for a one night stay. I would stay here again.

Even though overpriced, this KOA is very convenient to Devils Tower and you can easily hike the trails from the campground. The space between the sites was the best I have experienced at any KOA. The front desk help was quick and courteous. The utilities were well placed and worked well. I did not use the bathroom, shower room or pool. The only problem I had were the number of people who walked through my site. One kid even rode his bike around the picnic table. I don't suppose this was KOA's fault but in a way it was because there was no other easy route from the back of the facility to the swimming pool and store. I would stay here again.

Big Pine is the kind of place you have in mind when you go camping. Nice people, great sites in the trees and quiet. Some of the sites provide more space and shade than others so you may want to Google Maps before making reservations. Our site had FHU and the connections were all where they were supposed to be. Firewood was $4 per bundle and they delivered. Nice laundry facility, $2.00 to wash and $.75 to dry for 30 minutes. Convenient to Custer, Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore. A great price for a great place.

This is a very cool campground because it's located right in the Badlands. We had a nice view to the West in the morning but a great view to the East in the evening . I had to level both ways but it wasn't too bad. Most of the campers were in tents rather than RVs but it was very quiet. The dump station area had plenty of room and was easy to enter and exit.

The site was just an o.k. place to stay for overnight. Our site was a bit unlevel in both directions but manageable. It's about 3 miles off the Interstate but was a pleasant drive. Take lots of bug spray because the mosquitoes were very bad here. The rate include the $5 daily Minnesota State Park charge.

This campground is very convenient to downtown Sioux Falls. They do not take reservations but the rate is hard to beat for a full hook-up site. The utilities worked well and the site was somewhat level. We stayed in a pull-thru site by the grandstands and didn't have any road or train noise. Others mentioned airplane noise but we only heard that once. My only problem was the Prairie Dogs. They were everywhere and wouln't have bothered me except it rained the night before we left and their burrows became mud holes. We would stay here again.

This was one of the nicer KOAs we have stayed. The front desk person was friendly and led us to our site. All utilities worked well and the site was level. It appears they had just layed down a fresh layer of crushed stone throughout the park. My only complaint is that the sites are so close together. We would stay here again.

This campground is very convenient and we stayed here for 6 nights while visiting relatives. The utilities worked well but the water and electric were right outside our door but the sewer was on the opposite side of the RV. Even though inconvenient, our water hose and electrical cord reached because the sites are quite close together. We stayed in site G-4 for three nights and got very little sleep due to the street noise. We moved to site B-8 for the last three nights and the road noise was not as bad. I would stay here again because it is so convenient.

This was a very nice, family oriented campground. Lots of grass for those who were in tents. The utilities worked well and the site was level. Our site was way in the back and was extremely quiet. We would stay here again.

Site was long and good spacing between sites. All hook ups worked well. It rained so hard for the two days we were here that we didn't get out much and the park was almost empty. When exiting the park, watch out for the very large low hanging tree branch just before the check-in station. It's not a problem on the way into the campground.
