Stayed at Palmer Gulch many times. Booked family reunions and personal. This time our cabin was absolutely horrible. Faulty wiring, dirty beyond what you can imagine, mice etc. More than happy to help when booking but if you have an issue it will not get addressed. We stayed August 4th and 5th. We tried to laugh and call it an...

First the good. Great Black Hills location. Plenty for kids to do. Bath facilities are fine. People were very nice. Now the bad. Very crowded and cramped despite the size. Their free Wi-Fi doesn't work (despite their claims). No cable or satellite available---no cell service for that matter. We listened to XM radio which is available and watched videos at...

Staff was friendly, bathrooms clean, but the campsites are so packed in that your awnings almost touch the next unit. AT&T cell service worked in parts of the CG. Verizon, no service. Power was 120v water pressure good. Internet was limited to checking emails. Laundry room was clean and large. They had several on the property. If you have or...

If you like a lot of walking to all amenities then this is the campground for you, not to mention the washrooms are not convenient for camping sites so hopefully you don't find you need to use one in the middle of the night. They do have a lot of amenities....a lot (it's like s small town). What you don't...

We stayed at Palmer Gulch for what ended up being three nights. We initially made a reservation for one night, intending to travel on to Yellowstone but ran out of time. When we got to Palmer Gulch, the site that we were given (I believe it was 507) was totally unacceptable. I'd asked for a pull through for our mini-travel...

We stayed at this KOA with 3 kids, ages 12, 13 and 14. We had a two room camping cabin. CONS:The double bed mattress is so hard we put a sleeping bag over it and it still felt like we were sleeping on the wood board underneath, otherwise the cabins are nice to have. The resort does pack people in...

I thought this koa had a lot to offer for kids. I stayed inone of the little cabins. They were ok but the mattress on the double bad was really hard,I had to take the two mattresses off of the bunk beds and put them under the double one. Once I did that it was great. I can't wait to...

This was close to Mount Rushmore which is why we chose to stay here. It was a fairly expensive stay ($92USD per night) but there was so much stuff for the kids to do that they wanted to stay another night - splash pad, pool, minigolf, bouncy pillow, rental bikes, etc. The sites were full hook up but very close...

This is the largest KOA in the United States - which may be a little daunting to people - but it has a lot going for it. It is located right along the road to Mount Rushmore which is great. We just stayed for one night on our way to other locations. The Rushmore park is easily a one day...
