If you have never camped at a KOA, you are in for a real treat. We recently went Camping at Mt Rushmore KOA and it was BEAUTIFUL. It’s nestled right in the heart of the Black Hills and is close to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer Park. You will definitely want to visit during their Fun Zone times which is Memorial Day – Labor Day. Activities include two heated pools, two spas, waterslide, splash pad, Jumping Pillow and mini golf. Free Wi-Fi, bike rentals, golf cart/ATV rentals, guided horseback rides, gold panning, paddleboats and chuckwagon dinners are available as well. So as you can see there is something for the whole family to enjoy. The bike rentals seem to be a BIG HIT with the kids on this trip. Visit their website!
When you think of camping at Mt Rushmore KOA, you probably think of roughing it. Actually, Mt Rushmore KOA has 3 different options. You can of course camp by tent or RV but they also have cabins available for rent. We were lucky enough to be able to stay a couple of nights in their executive cabins while we were there and it was beautiful. I can tell you from experience that RVING itself was a lot more expensive than I thought and the cabins were gorgeous!
We stopped at one of our favorite stores Aldi on the way and stocked up on camping food so that we could save on meals instead of trying to eat out. We got fresh veggies, meat and even stuff to make s’mores. You can check out our 25 Easy RV Meals post. If you forget any supplies don’t worry the KOA has a small general store where you can pick up wood and other things to start a fire. They even have a place to do your laundry, which allows you to pack less.
The view from the cabins were AMAZING! Here are a couple of shots I got including the one at the top of this page of me on the rock.
