Mt.Rushmore KOA

We are heading to Yellowstone NP this summer and plan on stopping at Mt Rushmore for a few days to check out the area.

There are two KOA's that I am looking at. The MT Rushmore KOA and the Custer/Mt Rushmore KOA. The Mt Rushmore costs more and also as a $10 daily resort fee. Has anyone stayed at these? What's your opinion? We will be staying for 4 nights so the savings at the Custer/Mt Rushmore might buy a tank of gas..

Thanks

We stayed at the Mt Rushmore KOA a few years back and found that the campground was very well kept up and clean. It was a bit on the pricey side then too, but we were camping with two other families, totaling 14 people. We enjoyed our 3 day stay very much. For more comprehensive reviews, look it up on TripAdvisor.com . I have found their reviews to be very helpful.

We used to live in Rapid City. Although KOA is where we generally look first, our favorite in the area was Big Pine Campground. It's been many years, but it still looks nice. Check it out: Big Pine Campground Custer South Dakota

Second Big Pine in Custer. We stayed there last summer (with our pop-up) and it was so nice compared to the other campgrounds you drive by in the area. This place actually had shade compared to other (parking lot types in the area). The Owner/Operators of the campground are the nicest and friendliest people ever. They bring you out to your site help you back in/ level if needed and will deliver fire wood right to your site. Its also only about a 20 min drive to Mt Rushmore.

Just watch your schedule. Sturgis Motorcyle Rally is August 2nd thru the 9th. While very entertaining, place is packed a week or two before and a week after. Plus there is moderate "price gouging" at some of the local businesses. This year is the 75th Annual, so it will be especially busy, like 750,000 people. Most campgrounds are already booked during this time. Made my reservation last June and barely got a spot.

The Black Hills & Mt. Rushmore are well worth seeing. If you have time stop in Cody & go through the Cody Museum.
