Owners are office staff and very helpful. Park is 2+ miles from town but they offer a free shuttle bus every 2 hours. Entrance to the park is challenging as you must make a hard right turn in and up a very steep hill. Sites are level but stark and VERY close together. Showers/restrooms are very clean and tidy. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Deadwood is a nicely preserved old western town, fun to sightsee.

Nice park very near to Deadwood. The park has a shuttle during the summer that runs about once an hour to take you into Deadwood. The park sites are level gravel with concrete patios and a picnic table. The spaces are tight and would not recommend anything over about 30' of travel trailer with tow vehicle. This park has excellent cable with many stations. Verizon LTE only 1 bar or 2, but can be usable for data. Did not see the dog walk section as it was up a hill. This park is older but well kept. The staff were very helpful and nice. Good park for smaller rigs, and the site are quite close together. Would recommend if you rig fits. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a pizza shop nearby that will deliver to your site. Camp store is well stocked.

The Good Points: Very close to Deadwood with easy access to both Deadwood and Lead. Located on a hillside, it is quiet at night. Each site has a tree with a paved area for picnic table. Bathrooms were clean. Sites were generally level. A nice perk is a shuttle that can run you into town in about 5 minutes. It runs every hour in July and every odd hour in August. The Bad Points: This campground is very tight, almost ridiculously so. You are so close to your neighbor that you feel like you could reach out and touch their RV. The sites are short and you must squeeze your car in almost diagonally in front of your trailer. I'm not sure why, when they weren't even half full, that they did not alternate sites as people registered. This would at least give you the feeling of a bit more space. Instead, they lined us up like sardines. The bad thing about this area is that you don't have a lot of choices in campgrounds close to Deadwood. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Typical KOA campground with plenty of amenities, but always lacking personal charm. The entrance to the park is a VERY steep incline but no impossible to navigate. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground set in the side of a hill just outside Deadwood. The sites are on multiple levels and in a motor coach it can be challenging. The sites are very tight but the hourly free shuttle to and from Deadwood (casinos, good food) made it bearable. The staff was very friendly. I will stay in Spearfish (8 miles away) only because 30 ft campers should be the size limit. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a motorhome towing a trailer: about 50 feet. The staff was very friendly and were to able accommodate our unit. It is uphill to get into the campground and the sites are on hillside levels. We had no problem getting to our site, but if you are a wary driver and not very good at maneuvering your rig, you may want to find somewhere else to camp. The campground was not full when we were here and it was a great overnight stay, with a quick trip to Deadwood. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

It's a small park on many levels and the sites are so tight you could shake your neighbor's hand. While the shuttle is convenient, so is downtown with free parking, so unless your a have a few too many it's just as easy to drive. No shade trees so you bake in the sun. The biggest plus, was the staff was very nice. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is very small, with extremely small spots. If you think it is uphill to get to the park, wait till you try to get to your spot! If you are staying here for Deadwood, it is a waist of time, nothing but tiny casinos. We went to see some of the History, but there is nothing left. The Hill Top KOA looked like a better spot, wish we had of stayed there. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Travel Trailer.

If you have a big rig it is a trick to get parked because sites are so close together. Friendly staff and clean area. I wouldn't stay here again because I could open my door and touch the RV next to me and it was noisy. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a normal KOA campground, nice but a little overpriced as all KOA's are. Staff was friendly. There was a shuttle that ran into Deadwood every couple of hours which was nice so you didn't need to run around Deadwood in an RV. We will probably stay here again if coming through the area as there doesn't seem to be much else to choose from. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very secluded KOA just 1 mile west of Deadwood. It had pool, hot tub, cable, wireless, picnic table, but no wood burning fires were allowed. The office staff was very friendly and they had a well stocked store for such a small campground. My biggest complaint was the narrowness of the campsites. We have slideouts, and it was difficult to find enough space to let them out, and we had an end-row site! The campground is also unusual in that it is terraced up a hill, so walking up and down to the office/pool/bathrooms is a bit of a chore. Overall a nice, affordable KOA, but I would probably not stay there again due to the narrow sites. We stayed one night and paid $37.98. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 10 days. There were two things on the downside. The Wi-Fi was spotty, but was very fast when it worked. We were in site 39 way up the hill at the far end. It was a good site, but the climb up was beyond belief. Put er' in low gear and hold er' to the floor all the way up! Overall it is a nice campground, and we would return.

Tucked in a canyon about a mile west of town, with lots of trees but none that get in the way. Some of the sites are kind of small and the road up into the campground is a bit narrow. Bathrooms are outstanding, with individual toilet-sink-shower rooms that even have hair dryers. The shuttle into town leaves once an hour until 10 p.m.; it's free but they have a tip jar, kind of tacky. Lots of cable channels, fast wi-fi. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two years ago and again this year. We would stay here again and again. This is a great location if you are going to spend several days in the Black Hills as it is pretty much in the center of Sundance, Devil's Tower, Mount Rushmore, and Badlands MP and one of the best locations if you are going to Sturgis!!! Now the spots are really tight if you have slide outs, etc., but that is part of the camping thing! Get to know your neighbors!!! The hot tub was great, the pool was heated. And they have shuttle that runs you into and out of Deadwood every hour. If you like to gamble it is perfect. And don't fret over the fact that the shuttle quits running at 10:00. Pretty much most of Deadwood shuts down at 10:00!!! We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Travel Trailer.
