This KOA has been newly renovated this last year and the owners did an EXCELLENT job. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. The Laundry was clean, well lit, and large. Although I did not use the showers I did look at them and they are as nice as any you would find in any high dollar athletic club. I will happily stay there again and I fully encourage anyone else to stay at this KOA. It is easily accessible to downtown Spearfish. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice KOA! Unfortunately we were parked on site-A which is a grass site behind the office where several sites are stacked one on top of the other. We had to drive the entire park to reach site-A and we had to do the same thing to depart. The exit from site-A is guarded by a large pine tree that a Big Rig cannot maneuver around! In addition, when the evening Ice Cream Social started in the office our campsite was the path to the Ice Cream! If you're driving a Big Rig tell them you do not want the grass sites behind the office. All other elements of the park worked well with the exception of the campers parked with their trucks stuck out in the roadway. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the kind of KOA that sells the KOA brand. Very clean, well maintained, easy to navigate. Dog Park and a trail to walk the dog. Convenient to Hwy 90 but quiet. I like the convenience of KOA emailing me confirmations and receipts. My one negative on KOAs is the 11:00 check out. The standard for RV Parks and hotels is 12:00 so making it an hour earlier just seems unfriendly. Its not like they have to make up beds for the people checking in at 2:00 so . . . Why? The park is close to town and shopping. Safeway Supermarket --- nice change from going to Walmarts for groceries. I marked the park a 9 rather than 10 for the very bad WIFI. We were there 4 days and even when the park had lots of open spots it was hard to connect. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in anywhere. The grounds are well kept and the park is really pretty. The managers are a nice couple who work hard to make this a nice place. We used the laundry which was spotless. The laundry,showers and restrooms are in a new building. Our site was spacious and easily fit our 42' Fifth Wheel and truck. The sites have picnic tables and fire ring. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location just off if I-90. Owner/Managers were fantastic and accommodating. We arrived at dark after a long day of driving and they were closed. He still met us and escorted us to our site and even offered to help us set up. We thanked him but elected to only hook up our power and set up the next morning. The staff bent over backwards to help every way possible. The ice cream social each night was fantastic. We stayed for a week and we are definately going back. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the nicest RV parks on,our trip. Awesome, everything was so nice and green and well groomed. All sites were spacious and easy in and out. AND their BBQ was the best. The office is in their small restaurant and they make their own brisket etc. Make sure you stay at this park. Very friendly staff. Rates are great. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

Hi Ken - Thank you for the review and staying with us earlier this month. However we do not have a BBQ restaurant. I'm thinking you might have us mixed up with another stay on your trip??

This is a beautiful park, it is immaculate. The owners are so friendly and helpful. Access on and off the interstate is easy. No interstate noise though. We were only here overnight on our way west, but would have loved to stay longer. If it is this pretty early in the season, it must be gorgeous in the summer. There is a nice dog park, heated pool, cabins. Lots available. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this KOA in Sept. 2016. When we extended our stay a few times, we noticed an "amenity fee" on our receipt. When we questioned this charge, we were told it was for an easement that the owners had to access a walking trail. They said KOA didn't let them increase the nightly charge, so they charge a separate "amenity fee". Which...we probably wouldn't mind, IF we were told about this when we checked in instead of a random charge that we weren't expecting. Also, we were going to do our laundry and ran into one of the owners. They said, "laundry room is coming down tomorrow." We asked if the washer and dryers were still inside and were told they weren't. We had NO idea. My husband called and spoke to the other owner and how they could do this without letting their guests know. She said something about not seeing us for a few days. They had been sending us our receipts via email...they could/should have sent an email to guests to advise that one of the amenities they had would now be gone. My husband asked if they would be taking a few dollars off of the rest of our stay. She snapped at him and said, "Obviously you've never run a campground before." With that, we had to go to the Spearfish public laundromat. And, we left the KOA and went to another RV resort. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

Spearfish KOA Campground, owner at Spearfish KOA responded to this review

Your 2-night reservation was extended several times to a total of 15 nights. Your rate was $10 less/nt for the 2nd half of your stay. Amenities fee ($1.90/day) also included other things like site escort & fire ring delivered to your site, daily site trash pickup, Dog Park & doggie dumpster/bags. It was clearly indicated while making your reservation. We tried to contact you, left a message & kept missing you at the office. We're exciting about our brand new restrooms/showers/laundry building which is now open! Sorry your experience here wasn't a better one!!

Well I think this park could be a 9 or a 10 if the restrooms lived up to the standards of the rest of the park. Right now they are old and tired and less than spotlessly clean...but still acceptable. I understand this will be remedied by the current owners soon.
Other than that, this park is beautiful, functional, and has all the amenities (even the internet is great) and owners that are customer service oriented. I look forward to upgrading my score on our next trip! We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are many sites to see using Spearfish ad a base as others have noted...but also note that Devils Tower Wyoming is less than one hour away and is spectacular...along with a prairie dog city there as well.

The Chinese restaurant on the left about 1/2 mile away was not good. Other choices available within a mile of the park.

For an end of September rate, we thought it was a bit high. The park was mostly empty yet we ended up having to pay for a cable TV -enabled site which we didn't want. We were located in the newer area due to length of our rig. Overall, clean, quiet, friendly at check in. Level sites, with comfortably distance between each rig separated with grassy areas and trees. A coat of paint on picnic table is required. Easy roads within park to maneuver. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicely maintained park in a beautiful area of the country. Great 3-5 mile walking trail accessible from RV park followed a mountain stream. Close to Mt Rushmore, Devils Tower, and the very pretty Spearfish Canyon. Stayed an extra day to enjoy the park and area. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest places we stayed at. Staff was very friendly and escorted your site. Our site was gravel but very leveled and long enough for the tow. They have grass, which out west is not often seen at many campgrounds. Cable & WIFI worked great! Close to everything Black Hills, Devil's Tower and Sturgis.

Did not use any of the facilities but the pool looked clean. If we come back out west this is one we will back. Loved it! We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Motorhome.

Great place. My only real complaint is that the commode and shower stalls were a little on the small side. I'm not a real big guy, but it was a little tight in there. I was surprised how much of the interstate noise I could hear, and not just the bikes!! I would not hesitate to stay here again. Great people running the place. We camped at Spearfish KOA in a Tent.
