I made a reservation on-line for a 30 amp pull-through space. A couple of days later I received a phone call from Hardin KOA asking me what type of electric plug was on my rig and when I replied that it was 50 amp I was told that I must change my space to a 50 amp at a five dollar per day increase. My statements that I had been using 30 amp spaces thruout my trip went unheeded and since there are few choices to camp in this area I had no option but to accept. Found out after we got there that it had side by side hookups. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small KOA campground situated on the outskirts of Hardin surrounded by farmland. There is some kind of plant across the road with a loud humming noise that ranges from low to high. The park does not get any marks for beauty. It's basically dirt and weeds. The interior roads are narrow and tricky maneuvering a large RV. The sites are close together especially the ones that share utilities. Our site was narrow with a tree that needs some trimming. We had to park the car sideways to fit it in our spot. No Directv due to trees. They have cable but ours was fuzzy. They advertise WII FI at the site but we could never get connected. Luckily we had 4g and 4 bars with Verizon so we used our hotspot. The water pressure is very low coming in at 20psi. The brochure says they haul in their water. Maybe that accounts for the pressure somehow. There are trains in the area that you will hear throughout the day. This park must be on the way to or from somewhere because they seem to do a steady business. Apparently, many harvesters stay here as well. Pretty pricey for what you don't get. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

The Hardin KOA is in a good location. It's close to the Little Bighorn Battlefield Memorial, and close to a small town with gas/groceries. It's surrounded by farm fields, includes a small clean pool. The roads and sites are gravel - and tend to be a little dusty, but it isn't too bad. There is some limited shade. The children's playground is okay. But, their claim to having cable TV is silly. It simply doesn't work. Just use a regular antenna and you'll get a few network stations with a clear signal. The WiFi signal was okay, but not spectacular. It works best late at night when most people are asleep. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second year in a row staying here. 25 sites are fairly level, gravel, side-by-side, full hookup sites with cable TV. There are only 10 channels. Some sites are satellite friendly but you should probably call for one ahead of arrival. There are also about 30 water & electric (half with cable and half without), plus 7 tent sites, and 6 cabins. There is a small pool and a playground. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are in the main building along with a small TV lounge and store. The bathroom facilities were old, but clean. Typically, these facilities are inadequate for a park with non-sewer and tent sites. There is a small pool that was refreshing on a hot day and a playground for the kids. The staff and owners were friendly and helpful. The Internet connection was OK until late evening when the "bandwidth hogs" got on. We could not get back on after that. Recycling was just aluminum cans. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

The campground was good for what we wanted, something close to The National Parks. We did not like the sites to much because we had a neighbor who liked to sun bathe in his lounge chair which was right next to our picnic table. This was due to the back to back spots which were very close. The wifi was fine during the day when the park emptied out but was slow later. The cable channels were very fuzzy and there were only 10 of them. The OTA channels were almost perfect and we got 9 of them.
We arrived around 11:30am to check in and the lady did not seem happy that we were early even though the campground was pretty empty. She told us they normally do not check people in until after 1:00pm. Probably because of the bathrooms being cleaned which we did not need.
We would us this campground for a stopover again. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

As mentioned by other campers this KOA could use some cleaning up - a lot of weeds although the lightly graveled spaces are level. The location is great - about 20 minutes from Little Bighorn Battlefield and not too far from a couple of grocery stores and gas stations. Hardin has limited shopping. The park is off the freeway and very quiet although crop dusters buzzed the crops near us early in the morning - we didn't consider this a bad thing; it was interesting to watch. Two concerns were that we were charged the holiday rate for the Tuesday after Memorial Day and a note on their website said they had a hot tub although the pool wouldn't open until June 1. Neither was available and when we asked we were basically told they wouldn't open it until there were more people in the park. WiFi was OK but the cable was very limited and picture not good; we ended up using the aerial and got a better picture. If you're visiting Little Bighorn Battlefield it's a good option. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Level gravel sites, easy access, RVs were spaced if possible with an empty space between, beautiful rural setting surrounded by hay and beet fields, quiet, decent laundry facilities, pool and hot tub were open but we did not use. Hardin is nearby with IGA grocery, fuel, and auto parts as needed. Multi-colored rabbits hopping around. Really. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Do not miss the Hardin County museum. A lot of local history, native American artifacts and an amazing collection of antique trucks and tractors if you like that type of thing. We spent the morning there. The Custer museum in Garryowen is a must-see also, with many rare artifacts including from Custer and Sitting Bull. And take the time to listen to the ranger talks at the Little Bighorn Battlefield unless you are a recognized expert on the subject.

Water pressure very low, gravel sites, space between pull-through sites good (20 ft), cable TV OK, nice covers over the picnic tables, wifi not functional ("connected but no Internet access"). We were guided to our site, and the owner was excellent about giving us hand signals to position our motor home perfectly. Sewer, power and water connections convenient. Laundry has 5 washers at $1.75, very busy and closes at 8pm. Why? Owners are nice - too nice, country-type folks - who had problems telling a walk-up customer directly that there were absolutely no spaces available. Verizon 4G worked well, but we expected the advertised wifi. Gravel sites are river rock - suggest using pads for levelers. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall this is a decent campground. Campground roads and parking sites need a new layer of gravel. The workers and owners were extremely helpful and polite. Price is a little stiff for this campground. The location is near Little Big Horn which was nice. Our rig is 40' long. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

We don't normally stay in KOA's as we're self-contained and don't use most of the amenities that boost the nightly cost, but we've stayed at the other CG in town in the past and decided to give these folks a try.

We opted to stay in a 30A water & electric only site as we were just staying overnight. Our gravel site was long enough for our truck, 5th wheel, and car. Verizon 4G data was good and DTV worked well. Electric power was good. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. The main road past the park is being rebuilt so entry and exit can be delayed a few minutes waiting for the next pilot car going your way. The road work is supposed to be done in by the end of October 2015. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is not in the best shape, needing maintenance and water. The sites are level and the electrical is acceptable. The sewer connection was too far away for our 20' hose, so we could not use it. The water pressure was so low that we used our water pump so we could take a shower. The owners have to truck in their water everyday since their own wells produce poor quality water. Every site needs cleaning and new gravel. The grass is all but dead, likely due to their lack of water storage.The owners however are very helpful. I would not stay here again given these conditions. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice KOA on the edge of town. It's completely surrounded by farmland under cultivation, which our kids loved seeing. All around were sugar beets and wheat. We saw a herd of antelope about a half-mile from the park as well. Our pull-through site was at least 80 feet long, and the hookups were in just the right spot. There's plenty of shade, but also spaces in the open if that's what you prefer. The owner greeted us at the front desk and then escorted us to our site. Everything was clean and well maintained (though we didn't look at the bathrooms or laundry facilities). Wifi was very slow though. But, overall, this is a nice place to stop for a night or two. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Hardin KOA park for 1 day in our 40' rig. Check in was easy because of our reservation. The check in staff was very friendly. There is a store and gift shop with the basics. We found our space with no problem but it had too many trees for our satellite so the manager was nice enough to let us move to a space with less trees for our satellite. It was easy to pull into our pull thru site. The sites are gravel driveways with a grass area. We were in space 13. The spaces are very roomy. The sites are level so you don't need blocks or levelers. The utilities were all in the right place and in working order for my spot. Our satellite worked fine as did our Verizon hot spot. Most of the spaces are pull thru's. We did not use the showers there. There was a very cool wooden swing in our spot that just made looking at the sunset even better. There are lots of mosquitoes here so use bug spray. We chose this park because it was close to the Custer Battlefield. We would come back to this park again. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.

We were last here about 5 years ago and were not happy with our stay - we were promised a satellite friendly site and were not given one. There are now new owners and they seem to be running this park properly, We had a level, gravel, FHU site with minimal (10 channels), Of the 77 sites listed above, only aboutn25 of those are FHU with cable TV. Only half of those are 50 Amp. There are about 30 W&E sites - half with cable and half without. The remaining sites are cabins and tent site. The park has a small pool and a playground. The Bathrooms, showers, and laundry were old but clean. These facilities are inadequate for a park with 50 non sewer (RV, cabin, and tent) sites. Their WIFI worked well for us. If you want a satellite friendly site be sure to ask - many sites are not satellite friendly. Limited FHU sites, limited cable, and limited SaTV sites reduce the rating. We camped at Hardin KOA in a Motorhome.
