This was our first experience in a KOA Cabin and we enjoyed the stay. The cabin was clean with free wifi and cable tv. The restroom was clean but the shower head was rather low. Free coffee was a nice touch and the clerk allowed me to put a frozen cooler pack in the freezer. The clerk was very nice and helpful, but he had severe problems using the computer software in order for us to make payment. I would have to leave it with him and check back while he worked on it. It was a little frustrating, but his friendly attitude made up for it. - sandrag

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. - fivertug

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. - wtravlr1

Great location for visiting casinos, also driving to Mt Rushmore and Devil's Tower.
Easy access to Mickelson 109 mile trail at bottom of hill from RV park. Fine walking dogs. Clean park with garbage pickup at site. - rvreviews

This RV park is disgusting. It infuriates me when I use a rating system from a very reputable camping guide that rated this park a 9.5, only to find that this park is one of the worst we have ever stayed at.
1. The cost is very high.
2. The people operating this park are inept. The woman who checked us in doesn't know a thing about RVs. I called early that morning and told her THREE times that my motorcoach was 35 feet long and that we had a tow vehicle. She said she had a 40 ft back-in site for us. When we arrived the site couldn't accommodate us. It was way too small. She gave us another site and told us it was 61 feet long. It wasn't true. It was just long enough. We barely fit.
3. The park is grossly overcrowded. The sites are so close together you can barely get your pop-outs to go out. If you have a Class A, do not stay here unless they confirm they have a pull-through site for you. You will not fit here.
4. The bathrooms and showers are filthy. There is mold/mildew everywhere. It can be cleaned as I scraped it with my fingernail and it came off. They don't clean the restrooms. There was hair all over the shower and tiles are broken. Don't shower here.
5. The people staying here in this park are loud, disruptive, and drunk. There is no quiet time. We saw people standing on the roofs of their travel trailer drinking. It is not family friendly. The tenants here drive their ATVs all night long.
6. The trash dumpsters are not emptied regularly. The trash is overflowing here. We couldn't take our trash out. Gross.
7. There is no grocery store in Deadwood. Bring groceries with you or plan to drive to Lead, SD for food.
8. There is no Wi-Fi. There is a hotel across the street that the RV park uses their password to use their Wi-Fi. It doesn't work. No cable and no television stations can be received here.
We would never stay here again. Never. And I wish we could get our money back. We paid almost $100 for 2 nights to stay in a dump. - Perfection expected

My wife booked this park before we left on our trip. She spoke with the owner who was very nice but, in hindsight, overstated the park. They were not allowing campfires while other parks in the same area were. The bathrooms were not clean and the spots were small. The amenities (pool, play area) were overstated and not very nice. While they will tell you that you can walk to town (Deadwood, SD), it is over a mile to the desirable part of town and part of the walk requires you to walk along the edge of the road that has no shoulder. When we made our complaints after check-in, the person working the counter did not seem concerned at all so we asked for a refund, re-connected and headed out to another campground. - Phydeauxman

Beautiful well maintained park. Initially I was concerned about the site sizes after reading the reviews. I mentioned my concern before reserving a site. I was assured our 40ft MH would fit fine. We were on site#26 and the site was perfect. We walked around the campground and honestly think there is not a bad site in the park. Sites are spacious and level. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Across the street from the campground is the historic DC Booth Fish Hatchery, no admission fee. No expense was spared building this facility. - a_d travelers_2

This is truly camping in a park setting - green grass, large trees, and a trout-stocked stream. Sites are level gravel and narrow, with a fire ring and table but are narrow except for the "premium" sites which are larger and have 50A. The park now has WiFi but it was spotty during our stay; however, Verizon cell/data was very good. Trees make it difficult to access the TV satellites, but the cable TV was very good. A town-wide network of concrete trails passes through the park, and a free historic fish hatchery is across the street. Knowledgeable, friendly hosts and excellent grounds maintenance make this a trouble-free stay. There will be families with children and it will be crowded, but the park quiets down early each night. A little out of the way, but worth the effort. - Meanderman

We have stayed in this park twice in the past two years - 2014 and again in 2015. 2014 was a 38' motorhome and 2014 a 30' Airstream TT. Both stays were great. We have two Labradors and we walk four miles every morning, the paved trail was perfect. Lots of grass in the campground, exceptionally clean. The one and only drawback is sites are a bit tight and often on many sites trees are directly across from the site you are assigned into and back in can be a challenge. Always possible, but a challenge. Terrific people work here, from the lady in the office to the grounds crew - just nice people. We plan on staying again this year 2016 on our way out west. - PA Airstreamer

We have been in the Black Hills many times camping, however never in Spearfish. We stayed at Spearfish KOA and were extremely happy with the campground. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The campground was very well cared for. There is excellent access to the interstate and Black Hills activities. The pool was small but very clean, facilities were nice. There are plans on improving the shower/restroom next year. They are clean and functional but older right now. The store is well stocked with the basics. The park is quiet, you will hear some highway noise but nothing over the top. There are some nice shade trees and each site was level with a gravel pad. Cable service was good and they have WiFi available. Overall a very nice experience for us. We will be staying here again. We really enjoyed the campground and staff. Thank you! - LP2013

We stayed here in a 45' RV, towing. The site, 76, easily accommodated our rig and toad. The site appears to be new, as the connection equipment and the fence dividing the sites all appeared new. All the connections worked flawlessly as did the Wifi, which was one of the best we've experienced. The staff was very friendly and escorted us to our site. The road departing the site was a little tight but navigable with a big rig. We will definitely return if in this area!! - Stealth01

Great park! Great improvement since Kim and Aaron took over the park. Family oriented and feel welcomed to the park. Stayed for 2 weeks and returning month and a half for another stay. - my86gw

This KOA has very tight spaces. Spaces were muddy. Dogs were constantly barking. I would not stay here again. - blkmtn
May 2015 - $23.00
Stayed overnight. Not recommend when its been raining because of mud; however, summer time would be a good time to stay. Sites close together but manageable. Lots of toys (suv's) and equipment laying around. Looks more like a home than a business; however, the Passport America rate makes this tolerable. Would not pay full price to stay here. - redhead777

The office was closed on arrival, instructions were easily read - park and register when staff returned. The RV park is under new management, has been cleaned up and re-landscaped (according to the owner/manager). We were in the winter season so showers and washrooms were not open but the owner allowed us to use a staff washroom. Friendly interactions, but a bit pricey for the reduced services available in this 'off' season. - Ken and Barb

Park a little pricey, but clean and level sites. Easy in and out. Found a new section of the park while we were taking a walk, that we weren't told about by park staff. It was occupied, but not fully, and away from the main campground. Some sites had hot tubs, propane grills, and small dinettes. Curious. I would stay here again, but I would have to ask about the new section. - Rick Frazier

Came for the Sturgis motorcycle rally. Booked in Dec 2014, however campground owner called us a few weeks before our trip to let us know there was a problem with the size of our rig/overbooking situation. We were very clear as to how large our coach was when we made the reservation and he didn't indicate at that time that there would be a problem. The owner asked if we could be flexible with our dates and come several days sooner and then he would be able to accomodate us for our reservation. We were able to do this, however the owner informed us we could only stay for 8 nights instead of the 10 we had booked and paid for and he refused to refund us the two nights. He also refused to refund us the difference in price between the rally week price and the rest of the year price. In addition, he is very rude and has absolutely no people skills. Instead of politely pointing out his campground rules, he screams them at you and then threatens to throw you out. This man has no business dealing with the public and should put someone else in charge of running his campground. It's very clear that he's all about the immediate dollar and has no concern for repeat business. He also operates his campground much like a dictatorship and is demeaning to his staff in front of paying guests. There are plenty of other campgrounds in the area that would be more than happy and appreciative of receiving your business. Campsites are graveled, not level and very cramped. Free WIFI is advertised, but we could never get it to work. Campground does offer a small pool and hot tub, although it wasn't very hot. There are several shower houses, a laundry and pavilion area. There is nice grass, a few trees and picnic tables at each site. The main road in is paved, but remaining campground roads are gravel. Overall, it's a decent campground but the rudeness and shafting just can't be overlooked. I would NEVER stay here again. - Sam818

This Park would rate a very high rating were it not for the rather greedy,bossy and Nazi like owner. We paid for a full site and during the Sturgis Rally, we just got crammed in. We paid for a full site at $1,000 for the full rally and had to park so our sewer had to run uphill as many sites have a 3 to 5 degree slant. The owner doubles up on spaces during Rally week to make lots of money, this is OK, but one would think you would at lease get treated nicely rather than having to put up with the hot headed and greedy owner. To be fair, the location is fabulous and the park itself is very nice but the owner is so intent on making tons of money that he just bosses people around and threatens to have you leave if you don't comply with exactly what he wants. If you don't mind paying high prices and being treated badly, then this is the place for you. Next time, we will go somewhere else and if we find that all park owners are like this during Sturgis Bike Rally week, we will just take this zip code off our list. - Largeandy

Park does not take plastic. Lady at the desk said it would cost them $300 for the card reader. OK, big park not willing to make a tax deductible expense for the convenience of the customers. Not good. Our campsite was very small. No room to park vehicle. Fortunately there were some unused sites across the road to park in. This is not a good big rig park. Site was all gravel, with one tree on the north side....no shade, and a well worn plastic picnic table. Sites are so small that the picnic tables have to be moved whenever someone is moving in or leaving. $43 per night is very high for what we got. Have had much nicer for $30. WiFi did not work. I asked about this and they said they had a lightning strike a couple of weeks ago and it had not yet been fixed. Customer friendly? On the positive side, the park had a nice swimming pool and the cable TV was better than average. Overall a bad experience. We will not be going back, and we would tell all of our big rig friends to stay away. - herbee

This is your average park with lots of shade trees in some areas and open areas for satellite users. Fairly level sites and fairly close together. I had a back in site with a worn picnic table, no fire ring and no patio, just gravel for the site and grass in between sites. Great owners, extremely friendly and helpful. Cash, money order or check only, no credit or debit cards. Two pools and a kiddie pool. A little overpriced for what it is. I might stay here again but would look around the area first to see what else is available. - Linda Allan

Great campground. Lanna is wonderful and quite informative. Got to pick our site. Very clean and well maintained. Sites are plenty big .
We stayed in a 37 foot motorhome.
By all means, do Spearfish Canyon. Gorgeous. Devils Tower is also easily reached from here. - villager

This was about the 4th time we stayed here for at least an overnight stop. This is really a luxury, high end, campground with lots of amenities. All sites have concrete pads and multiple sewer hookups. The park is easy to navigate even with a big rig. They have added lines for a pickleball court on one end of the tennis court and there is a portable net. We usually hit tennis balls when we stop here, and we were surprised and disappointed about the sorry shape of the tennis net because otherwise this is such a high class operation. - Thor MC

This campground is beautiful! The internal roads and sites are all paved and each site has easy access to full hookup facilities. The sites and mostly level and in excellent condition and there is a good space between each site. The office is large and always clean with friendly helpful staff. The campground has lovely green areas with beautiful statues of wildlife, nice to look at as you relax under the awning... The one and only negative thing is that there are far too few laundry facilities. There are two blocks with laundry factions BUT there are only 2 washers and 2'Driers in each block.... And with 186 sites this is crazy! We had to do our laundry early in the morning hours or very late at night AND the campground was nowhere near full! - KiwiYankee

Conveniently located right off of I-90, this campground was wonderful. Seemed brand new but has been in business for 10 years. Nicest shower houses we have ever seen at any campground. All facilities were like new and in excellent working order. Pull-through site we had was long enough to fit two campers with tow vehicles, and our combination is 50 ft. long. Each pull-through we saw had sewer dumps in multiple locations to accommodate for different rig types. While there was not an over-abundance of shade, we would definitely recommend staying here if visiting Deadwood, SD. - Phydeauxman

This "campground" is a parking lot beside the city road-work depot, with water, electric, and the world's brightest spotlights directly over your rig. The main quality is that the location is an easy walk to town if you don't have a second vehicle. The showers were also new, but the niceness of them pales after the dreariness of the lot. - Frayedshoestrings

Nice RV Park, inside the City of Deadwood. I liked the free (for folks that stay here) shuttle to and from the campsite to downtown. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Cleanest bathrooms and showers I've seen at a campground with no quarters needed for the showers. Nice and helpful staff. For the price you can't go wrong. - cablemn
Oct 2010 - $35.00
This is not an RV park; it is a glorified parking lot with electric sites. It rained, and we were in a swamp. There was a museum being built to our left and some sort of a heavy equipment yard to our right. The advertisement that we printed from the internet was misleading, as it stated there were full hookups, which we understood included sewer. The owner was nice enough to refund us 4 of the six days we had paid for. We moved to another park down the street, which was excellent. We would have booked there initially, but it was not supposed to open this time of year. - grace-donnelly

We paid the Passport America rate of $20 plus tax. Our mid-June stay was very enjoyable in a nice long, level, 50 amp full hookup site with excellent WiFi. One of the best WiFi networks we have used in a long time. Over-the-air TV reception was very limited with only 2 stations found, neither was a network (ThisTV and MeTV). So the WiFi was important for weather updates. We took a site on the lower level, the sites on the upper levels are either pull-in or back-in, your choice. Check-in was easy and friendly. The bath house was supposedly climate controlled, but in the off season it seems they turn it off when they close the office. Just a heads up on that if you need to use the shower there. We would gladly return when in this area. - Bob and Inga

We chose a site up on the second bluff. They stagger the sites when not busy. We overlooked Sturgis with a nice view. Full hook ups with 50 amp , water and sewer. No cable T V but good satellite access. We stayed for 4 nights and used it as a central base for Custer, Mt. Rushmore and Deadwood area. Really enjoyed the friendly staff. - signaloil

Two night stay on Passport (max allowed) a full week after bike Rally had ended. Campground was basically empty (10 other units). Grounds are gravel, sites have picnic tables and multiple sewer drains. The place needed a good hose off - butts and small trash all over the ground (with gravel I understand it's hard to pick up every little thing but it needs to be done, the place looked trashy). Bathrooms were not clean to our expectations - paper trash was not emptied during the time we stayed, dead bugs were on the floors, clumps of hair were stuck to shower walls, walls had a slimy feel. We got the feeling that the workers there were still too tired after the rally and didn't give a hoot. Very basic campground - parking sites, bath house and laundry - nothing more - no pool, (they do food, drinks and entertainment during the rally)
On the plus side, we were greeted warmly when we arrived and given our choice of sites. Office/store was very sparse in supplies -campers / tent accessories only - no food stuff.
Because of the price we were paying (12.50/night) we stayed here with the conditions as they are. - yesmar
