Stay away from the KOA unless you like being around a lot of people with kids running around all day. The campground needs updated bad. Many uneven gravel spots, ours wasn't big enough for the truck and trailer. Site drain very poorly after a rain too.

DW and I spent a week at Horsethief Lake Campground in the Black Hills National Forest. Only 2 miles from Mt. Rushmore and very convenient to the entire area. They are non-electric sites as are most National Forest sites, (which we prefer). A lot less crowded and peaceful. So much to do in the area so we spent very little time at the campsite. Was also very convenient to tour Mt. Rushmore during the day and then make it back for the night presentation, included in the daily price of admission and NOT to be missed. FANTASTIC! After the night presentation we were back at our campsite within minutes while everybody else was fighting traffic all the way back to town, etc. Definitely staying again at our next visit. We were there after the Sturgis Rally in Mid August.

Stayed in Happy Holiday CG on HWY 16 just out of Rapid City.

Not a bad place, Reptile Gardens right across the road, the girls were not interested...

We have reservations at the Rafter J in June on our way out west. Looked like a nice place.
