so jealous - we wee there a couple of years ago and stayed at that KOA. The trip was pretty fantastic.
That is a nice KOA but it was one of the pricer ones we stayed at.
ACca51, we went from Maryland to Yellowstone and did KOAs the whole way. we also stopped at Mount Rushmore and the Badlands. We used the KOAs because they are usually near the interstate and easy to get to (very well marked) and all had swimming pools. We planned our trip so we were in camp early enough so we could get set up and give the kids some swimming time. Our youngest was 12.
Things to beware of when planning the trip,
#1 is holiday weekends - KOAs have a three night minimum for holidays and they are usually packed
#2 is Mount Rushmore, leave the trailer at the campground to visit, they have really limited parking for long vehicles. we had originally planned to spend the spend an entire day at the badlands (we had two nights at the badlands KOA) and then swing by rushmore on the way further west (with camper in tow), but read in the AAA guide to not do that, so changed our plans to do the rushmore in the am and then drive through the badlands loop on our way back to the Badlands KOA. that was a good tip from AAA. We did stop at Wall Drug on our way out from there to Sheridan. The kids will get a kick out of Wall Drug.
