The part of the campground we stayed in had lots of grassy area between sites. Staff was very helpful setting us up with a tour of the Badlands and Mount Rushmore. One of the staff was very helpful in our decision whether or not to stay for the chuckwagon portion of the tour (we did). They also had rental cars on site. Wi-fi was spotty but usable during off hours. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of things to see in the Badlands area.

Big rig friendly. They let me wash the bugs off front of RV. Site was almost level. We had premium site with no patio. Our site was asphalt, a must since some sites were muddy. Very quiet yet right off Hwy 44. Staff gave us a great map to all the sites. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to grocery store and restaurants.

Cabala is very close for shopping too.

Pull-thru site was level and except for cable TV all services were good. Cable TV was very snowy but viewable. When I questioned the office about reception the escorting gentleman who had an indifferent attitude, suggested that it was all a matter of setup of TV and since I could not get all the channels listed I needed to scan more than once to get the remainder, but this made no difference. Next KOA, cable was clear. Some staff were friendly and others not so. Might not return. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects the discount we received because the campground was closing for the winter and had closed the restrooms and laundry. The park is located a few miles from I-90 on a bluff that overlooks the western edge of Rapid City. Sites were easy in out and well spaced. The utilities worked well and the park was well maintained and clean. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Some sites not big rig friendly. You need to look at site before staying. Staff very good. Some way from I-90. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA was close to everything, had a wonderful heated pool and hot tub (still open in late Sept!), very decent free wifi, several very nice kids playgrounds, and a nice dog run area. The staff was also very friendly. The only downside was that the sites were pretty close together, but definitely not the tightest we've ever encountered, I would say pretty typical of a private campground. The grounds were in good shape, it seemed to be recently renovated in many areas, and the pancake breakfast was a very nice treat. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice campground. We would have rated it a 9 or 10, but we were not put in a deluxe site we had reserved. The staff puts on a great pancake breakfast every morning and the pool is large and clean. This is a great location for sightseeing around the Black Hills/Mt. Rushmore area. The sites are large enough to park your tow vehicle with room to spare. The laundry facilities are clean. The showers/restrooms are clean as well. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was my base camp for doing things around the area. First stay at a KOA. Was worried, as I have always heard bad things about KOA campgrounds. Restrooms and showers were clean. Pool and spa were clean. Spa was in good working order. Laundry room was clean and in good working order. It was a bit cool to enjoy the pool. Spa was nice though. Friendly staff that were eager to tell about local attractions and give directions to them. Interior roads were a bit narrow, but in good condition. My pull through was long enough that I had no trouble parking the camper and truck in it. I would stay here again if in the area. Price reflects extra guest. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground in Rapid City. We've stayed here several other times and this is our place to stay while visiting here. Good location a bit away from all the attractions, but easy to access. Has a great pet run and Wi-Fi connections were good. Can't ask for much more. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Did not intend to stay here as we were supposed to be staying in Spearfish, SD. Unfortunately, tire trouble prevailed and we could not get into Rapid Tire Alignment until the next morning. In lieu of driving RV, with possibly bad tires and a bad alignment, to Spearfish only to turn around the next morning to return to Rapid City, we opted to find a campground in Rapid City. In a nutshell, staff was super friendly and accommodating. They had 2 sites left and we got one of them. The store is pretty awesome when it comes to souvenirs, indian artifacts, scrapbooking, food, amenities for camping, clothing, and wine. Lots of fun things for the whinos! Anyway, we used the pool and the hot tub. The kiddie pool was a distance away from the hot tub and we couldn't see our 4 & 5 year olds, so they were forced to go in the hot tub. Poor them! Large hot tub. Clean. Kiddie pool is 4" to 18". Large pool is 3' to 5'. Hot tub will fit about 10! Following this was an ice cream social. $1 was it. Now, I have complained in the past about how the KOA's will nickel and dime you. I was shocked when I checked in here. Our kids, ages 4 & 5, normally cost us $10 per day more. Not here! And the WiFi is free! They use Tengo internet where they charge you separately. Rapid City KOA gives you a coupon good for 1 week. The playground is awesome. The bathrooms and showers, in both places that I checked, were clean. The facility closest to us, we were in site 131, appeared to be fairly new. The roads entering campground are paved. Roads to sites are gravel. This being said, we hopped on our long boards and used our Kahuna Big Sticks and paddled around. We checked the rules ahead of time and saw nothing about roller blades or skateboards. We were approached by a KOA employee, who was genuinely interested in what we were doing. He advised us that we could go around the gate that they have if we wanted to paddle farther! Did I say the staff was friendly? We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Okay park. Large. Pretty busy. People coming in after 10:00PM. Good location. Office staff were nice. Don't know if it is because we got here later in the evening, but the restrooms were not very clean. Had been well used: toilet paper on the floor, etc. If you want an overnight park, it will do. But again, very busy park. They line the RV's up nose to nose. Typical KOA: pay for everything as you go. Nothing included except for hookups. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access to I-90. VERY windy setup. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Clean campground and nice laundry facility. The kids enjoyed the pool. Most attractions were between 30-60 minutes away. I would probably try to find something more centrally located to the big attractions if we were to stay here again. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Motorhome.

Unfriendly staff. Our spot was on the back side of a cattle pasture which made the smell and flies a problem. The wireless Internet was out of range an way to complicated. It also was a 10 dollar fee for the Internet. Overall for the price it was lousy. The only perk was a pool to relax in the record setting heat. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice KOA, convenient to I90 and the highway to Mt Rushmore. We had a pull thru site which was a bit tight, but the staff were helpful in trimming a few tree branches. The staff were friendly and the amenities are nice (pool, dog area, pancake breakfast). It is great if you are just stopping for a few nights to see Wall Drug, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We camped at Rapid City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
