You should see the Hills from here! Custer/Mt. Rushmore KOA is your central location for seeing all of the Black Hills. We are in the center of all five major Black Hills attractions: Mount Rushmore National Monument, Crazy Horse Memorial, Jewel Cave National Monument, Wind Cave National Park, and Custer State Park, all within 6 to 22 miles of the campground. We can arrange car rentals or tours with a local tour company that picks you up at your site. Downtown Custer has great restaurants and free live entertainment twice a week on summer evenings. You might even spot General Custer strolling around! After a day of sightseeing, unwind at our tranquil campground among the ponderosa pines, just 3 miles west of Custer. The kids will love our jumping pillow($), game room and playground. Seasonal activities (Memorial Day to Labor Day) include full chuckwagon breakfasts ($), ice cream socials ($), kids' crafts and games, and a heated pool, weather permitting. We offer 1 and 2-room camping cabins, 30 and 50-amp pull-thru and back-in sites, and several types of tent sites, from primitive to deluxe. Free Wi-Fi, clean restrooms, an on-site store, laundry ($), dump station, firewood ($), picnic tables, and propane ($) are available. Rates are higher June 29-July 7 and August 3-11 (Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and Custer Cruisin' dates).
