We were her for one night in mid-August and had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-though site. Their cable TV listing showed 20+ channels but several of those did not appear. Our site was satellite friendly, but most sites are not. Their 802.11 network was among the better we've had on this trip with no drops or dreaded "cannot display this page" messages. There are a variety of RV sites (FHU, W&E, pull-through, back-in, 50 Amp, deluxe, etc.) plus about a dozen tent sites and 5 camper cabins. etc. There is a small pool, a playground, a camper kitchen, a dog park, and a small laundry. The bathrooms and showers in the main office building were clean. I did not check the bathhouse toward the back of the park. The park is less than half a mile east of the I-25 interchange, so the walk to eateries west of the interchange is a bit more than that. They have recycling bins for plastic, paper, glass, and aluminum cans. The staff I encountered were a bit aloof. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

We paid for the deluxe end patio site. Good site but park is really a dirt and gravel park. Good for an overnight but we really did not use the outside site amenities as our side was not very enjoyable. Nothing to look at etc. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.
This was out third time to stay at this KOA. It is convenient to I-90, and not too far into town. Had full hook-ups and everything worked well. Site was not level this time, so will request a different site next time. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Truck Camper.
We stayed over the 4th of July for a total of 3 nights. They were kind enough to let us park our boat by the main office. We had to extend our stay by one night due to high winds and they were very helpful. Nice, efficiently run, clean and quiet campground. Sites were relatively level, just the usual one Lynx block on one side to make it perfect. The only down side are their typical KOA prices and they are usually on the high end with the rates over the weekend being higher. I struggle to see the need to increase the rates because the day of the week when nothing about the site is different. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Lake DeSmet is a beautiful lake to boat on and is a short drive away.
The campground had just opened for the season, so they were doing a lot of work around and the pool wasn't quite open yet. But, very good service from everyone we encountered. The park seems to be a place for one-nighters with it filling up by the afternoon and emptying out in the morning. Our site #54 was in the back near the river, which was very peaceful. We had a basic pull-through so the site was gravel with a bit of grass for our outdoor area. Plenty of room for our 40 ft rig and tow vehicle and no issue driving around the interior roads. Some spots have patios and furniture, but they are more expensive. We asked for a satellite friendly site so had no problem with that and the Wi-Fi worked well for us most of the time. Laundry was reasonable, but I forgot to wipe out the inside of the dryer and sure enough something inside stained some of our white shirts. Hard to control this when using public laundry facilities. This was a nice park and Buffalo was a quaint town to walk around. We would return. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed in a patio with grill site. Looking at grass, stream, trees, mountain. It was a site that just felt good. All services were good, site roomy, staff good. Utilities all worked well. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy on/off from the road. Office staff was hit or miss. Some were friendly and helpful and one was acting like we were disturbing her. She was more interested in chatting with other campers, and was not very helpful. Roads were gravel as were the sites, utility hookups were convenient and we had a good line of sight for our satellite dish. Nice long pull thru. We would stay here again.

This is the best kept park I ever stayed in. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. There is a small creek which is nice at the back of the park. The sites are large and have easy access. This one is a great park and on my do again list! We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

Surprisingly, our usual Buffalo RV park was full (some women's group called Sister of the Fly) the middle weekend of August. So, I came over here. There is are full hookup and W&E sites. The sites have cable TV (soon to change to needing a converter box system thanks to their provider) and the Wi-Fi network was fine. Some, but not all sites, are satellite friendly. There is a new, modern bathhouse in the back of the park. There are also facilities in the office building in the front of the park. The pool was typical for a small park. It is half a mile east of my usual park and is not as convenient for walking to eateries, shopping, and downtown Buffalo. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the nicest KOA we have stayed in! Very nice sites, some with swings and even one with a private fenced in area. All the tent sites had nice kettle grills. The pool was clean and very pretty with flowers all around it. the whole campground was nicely decorated with flowers. The office was well-equipped and had a little store with jewelry, etc. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our wifi worked great and our site was plenty wide for our 3 slides. We only stayed here one night because we were on our way to Glacier but we would like to return and stay a while longer. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Our gravel pull-thru was long enough for our 40 ft RV and toad but was mildly unlevel side-to-side. Friendly and helpful staff. Campground was clean and well-maintained. No trees tall enough to block our satellite dish. Adequate cable. Excellent Verizon signal. An annoyance was that there is only one trash dumpster/trailer for the entire park and it was MIA the morning we left. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects GS discount. Park is in excellent condition. Attentive staff. Laundry room in good condition. Washer/dryers worked well. First time here. Would stay again if the opportunity presents it self. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our time at Buffalo KOA. Check-in was easy and staff was friendly. Campground is close to a couple freeways (I-25 and I-90) and gas station. Campground swimming pool was clean. Our campsite was a deluxe site that included lounge chairs, swing, picnic table and BBQ table. Propane fill-up station is available. Inexpensive laundry. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. A small river flows through the park, but it’s located in tent camping area. Many campers were long term, and these RV’s appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. We visited Buffalo historic town, which includes many stores and restaurants. The TV show Longmire is based on this town, and they hold a yearly festival, which actors from the show attend. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
