We aren't KOA kampers. We tried over the years but aside from a few times, we've never left feeling good. This was no exception. We booked online and some of the site options said they didn't fit our rig (TT and truck) which didn't make sense since the description of those sites was big enough. We assumed perhaps they were already booked. We booked a pull-thru, W/E. The site was woefully too short and KOA-tiny. The worker who led us to our site just shrugged and said sorry. There were long enough sites open and still were the next morning, too.

Which leads me to my next KOA experience - I feel that way too often the workers are anything but excited about their jobs. I don't get it and I don't like it. Be happy to see us, try to accommodate us better.

There are sites here that are big, spacious, nicely situated. We didn't get one of those. All we wanted, and thought we booked, was a site long enough for our TT and truck to be left hooked up - not possible.

The bathrooms were fine, but dated and slightly musty. Typical KOA. The mini-golf is beat up and old looking, the pool is tiny. The fire pit was stuck in the tiniest strip of grass between ours and the next camper. We kept our fingers crossed that the people next to us wouldn't use there fire pit as it was almost under our slide out. Picnic table useable but old.

Location is nice and easy access, but there are campgrounds closer to Mitchell and the attractions than this one.

I don't want to say don't camp here, just don't expect a whole bunch. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The sites were very tight and the place seemed like it could use some updating. We requested to be next to another camper in our group in the reservation and they made no attempt to satisfy the request (seemed a bit lazy). The place had a foul odor, not sure what it was from but smelled like sewer. I would not stay here again. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We only stayed the one night as they had a rodeo in town. They were accommodating when I called to fit our rig, 39' rig. Nothing special, friendly enough. I think they could do better with PR. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park near Mitchell SD. We stopped here a couple of days on our trip east. We went to see the Corn Palace and the archeological park here in town. The RV park is not large, but has plenty of amenities and was quite full when we were there. Large dog park. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground, conveniently located to I-90. Sites were easy access, level, and pull through. Staff was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and shower were very clean, but starting to show their age (such as needing some repainting and TLC). We didn't use the pool, but it looked fine. One negative, though: there's a small cattle lot adjacent to the park (on the west side, I think), and the prevailing winds from time to time brought a cattle-ish aroma and flies wafting onto the campground. I guess that's the price of camping in cattle country, and it wasn't unbearable, just noticeable. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient to the Mitchell "Corn Palace," which has such an unusual facade that it's actually worth seeing just to say you've done so.

Beautiful clean campground with spacious shaded sites. No cable and we opted for a shady site so our satellite does not work. We stayed for 1 night and requested a pull thru site. The only one that was available was one with only 30 amps, but we were ok with this. Friendly staff and would definitely recommend this park. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice long pull-thru with big shade trees, good and level. Fire pits & picnic tables. Swimming pool, nice laundry room. Place was full on Fri & Sat, but sure emptied out early on Sun! Nice and quiet here, no noise at all. Good secure WiFi. No cable, and never even tried the antenna for the TV. Nice cool breeze, sure needed it for the 90+ degree weather. ;-)
Enjoyed being so close to town to see the Corn Palace, etc. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall nice park. Office was closed when we arrived but our reservation sheet was readily available. I have to question the electrical infrastructure of the park in that we overloaded the 30A feeding our site (our fault) and tripped a breaker. It wasn't the breaker in the RV so the next stop is the breaker on the post. Not tripped either. Had to call management to get them to reset a breaker down the line. That tells me that the campground is improperly wired. Other than that it's a convenient place to stop for the night. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. It was in the middle of Labor Day weekend when we arrived and there were 2 other people checking in at the same time but despite being very busy with a full campground the owner who checked us in was very friendly and so was the man that took us to our site. We had reserved a 50 amp full hookup site online and that was where we were placed. The site was long and level with grass between the sites. There are lots of large shade trees and we were assigned a site where we could get satellite as we had requested. If in the area again we would return. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have used this campground a few times now as it is easily accessible to I90. Far enough away from the interstate so you don't hear the noise. Sites are gravel and easy to access. All sites are pull thru. Employees are friendly and helpful. All facilities are clean and well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice quiet campground. Space was easy to get into and out of. We stayed here 2 nights and was impressed by friendliness of staff. Campground is easy to locate off I-90. They do recycle and provided us with a bag for that. They picked up garbage and recycling at 10:00 each morning. Would stay here again. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean and well maintained. Man checking us in must have been having a bad day as he was rather rude. Rest of staff friendly and nice. This is a convenient place to stay to visit the Corn Palace and the Laura Ingalls Wilder things in DeSmet. Verizon and wifi worked well here. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Corn Palace is fun and the shops around it are fun. We took a drive to visit the Ingalls Homestead and then into DeSmet to see the Surveyors Cabin where the Ingalls family lived, a school where Laura taught, a school that Laura and Carrie attended and the house that Pa built.

This is not a bad campground, considering where it is. We just spent one night in order to visit the Corn Palace. It is close enough to the interstate for a little road noise. The downside is the management. We reserved a 50 amp site but when we got there they said none was available, then the next RV that pulled in got a 50 amp site. The staff member who checked us in was less than courteous and the one who parked us was downright rude and didn't have a clue about how to park an RV. The 50 amp sites are closer to the highway. We would not go back. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Motorhome.

We find KOAs to be good for one night stops along the road. As most of them this one was close to the highway, staff was friendly and it appeared well maintained, although we did not use any of the facilities. As is also the norm, spaces were tight. We camped at Mitchell KOA in a Travel Trailer.
