Nice park and good for big rigs. The roads in the park are easy to navigate, the park is clean, off the road to miss the noise but not far from I90. Gravel roads, picnic table and fire pit. We were in site 44 which was easy to enter and easy to exit for a big rig with a toad. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the third July in a row that we have stayed here one night (this time it was a Saturday) on our way west. See my previous reviews for a little more detail on the park. As usual, we had a level, FHU pull-through site with a 802.11 network connection that worked well for us in the RV. Although there is cable TV with about 25 stations, many sites are satellite friendly. There is a small pool, playground, K9 camp, etc. They have a small café with limited menu items serving breakfast and dinner. There were a few groups of tenters the night we were there but the only problem that caused was an overcrowded pool for a couple hours. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the best KOAs we have camped at. Very large pull-through sites. Nice pool. Plenty of room for our dog to run and explore. Very friendly owners. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Small restaurant on site. Reasonable prices. 1880 town about a mile away.

This is the second year in a row we have stopped here. See my 7/13 review for details of the park's facilities and amenities. We stayed one week day night in mid-July. Our site was a FHU, pull-through with cable TV. The site was gravel, level, and fairly wide. We got good Wi-Fi network reception in the RV. This time, weather allowed us to enjoy the nice pool. I changed the "waterfront" classification above to "NO" because none of the sites is "waterfront". The only recycling I saw was a trash can for aluminum cans. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a gem! Great little KOA on 1-90 just off of Exit 170. About a mile up the road thus, fairly quiet and in a country setting. The owners are really nice people. They guided us to our big rig site #16 which was very spacious with lots of room, level with a nice grassy area and table. Very clean and well taken care of. It's about a mile to the 1880 Town which was well worth the visit. We have been to a lot of C.G.'s in South Dakota and although this is one that might get passed by, it's worth a visit. We came here to see the 1880 Town and stayed 2 days. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice KOA. It is very clean. Very well maintained and the staff is terrific. They have a small restaurant in the office. We ate dinner there and the food was very good. Our space was level and the amenities were good. This is mostly a spend a night place because there is not much around there. It is not far from the Badlands; however, and right next to the 1880's town, which was fun. The owner is very nice and keeps his KOA above average. We would stay here again.

We stayed here on a Sunday night in mid-July. I changed the number of sites to 94 which is what is shown on their handout map. There are also several group tenting areas and 5 camping cabins. The park was less than half full. We had a FHU, pull-through site with 24 channel cable and excellent (best of the trip) in RV WiFi included in the nightly fee. This appears to define most of the sites with the exception about a dozen sites being back-ins. The roads and RV pads are gravel. Our site was level. I can't speak for every site but my visual inspection leads me to believe most sites are fairly level. The reasonably priced laundry shared a building with some arcade games and a pool table. The bathrooms were older but very clean. We encountered our first cool (upper 60s) day of this trip so we didn't use the pool. It was smallish but looked very clean. Their cafe served good food at a reasonable price. We would definitely stay here again if it fit our travel schedule. The owners were very nice and seemed intent on providing a customers with good service. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the few 10's I've given. The hosts were exceptionally friendly. Very clean campground with well stocked store and a nice pool. Beautiful views both day and night. Same exit as 1880's Town attraction. Would absolutely stay here again. Price reflects a Kampers Cabin with KOA membership discount. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a clean, beautiful, quiet park. The owner is very pleasant and helpful. We parked on a cement slab with a new picnic table and brick fire ring. There is a really cool pet playground. An on site restaurant in the office building serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great WiFi and cable. Finding directions with MapQuest, etc. got confusing. Just take I-90 to Exit 170 and go right half a mile. There are plenty of signs. We wish all campgrounds were like this. It was only $2 more than the last place and that was nowhere near as nice. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

After staying at a couple of average parks, we were thrilled upon entering this park. Easy on/off access from I-90. Beautiful prairie views and the park is immaculate. We were escorted to our long, paved site by the owner. Owners have done a good job with the landscaping. Park has all the amenities you could ask for including a swimming pool, nice laundry, restaurant, store, picnic tables, fire ring and dog park. Excellent Wi-Fi. We ate at the restaurant and had a great buffalo steak and hamburger. The 1880 town is a half mile down the road and is a very interesting place to visit. If we come this way again, we will make it a point to visit this wonderful campground. Kudos to the owners for working hard and taking obvious pride. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects KOA disc. Very friendly owners and staff, easy in/out, long pull-thrus, quiet. Small older pool but clean. They have a little diner in the camp store that serves all meals. Breakfast was fine, and was $10 for two of us! We didn't get satellite but the next RV did (maybe our HD satellite is more fussy than regular satellite), so we used the cable. The one attraction in town is an 1880s "town" but we didn't go see it. It's close to the campground. We would stay here again for a night. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, large, well maintained grassy sites. Great little restaurant on site. Very friendly and helpful staff. A 1/4 mile walk to the 1880 Town. Nice enclosed "dog park". The lake and prairie setting are very peaceful and relaxing. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground. The owner is great in person (a little short on the phone). We called ahead, as we were on the road looking for a place to stay while traveling and he stayed up to help us check in. He provided us with an upgrade in the site for free and drove us to our site personally. Our site had a concrete pad and a light on top of the hookup box. This was a very nice addition, especially since we got there late. The hookups were easy to use. Each site had a grass area and a fire pit. The fire pit was not very deep, but it did the job. The sites were a little close, but you had enough room to extend everything and still have walking around room. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

If you want to find out what it is like to live on the South Dakota plains, this is the place to be. The campground has all the amenities, and we enjoyed are stay here. The owners work very hard, and are very friendly. The campground includes a small restaurant where breakfast and dinner are served. It was a good way to meet other campers and even a few locals. 1880 Boomtown, just down the road, is a very interesting and educational attraction that shows what it was like to live on the plains in the 1880's. We would most definitely stay here again. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Motorhome.

Had a rainstorm so there were puddles, and some problems with mud where grass met gravel. Nice little dog park. Some pull throughs with sewer have concrete pads. Clean restrooms. Good food at the campground cafe. Pretty area, next to a pond which has been kept in a natural wetland with cat tails. Wi-Fi worked, had to keep entering the code with my iPhone. Didn't stay long enough to check it out on the computer. I would stay here again. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Travel Trailer.
