Kerri and her family didn’t actually plan on staying at this KOA. They had made reservations at the Cedar Pass campground in the national park. Well, weird things happen, and when they showed up to claim their site, there was no record of the reservation.
Enter the Badlands/White River KOA.
In retrospect, Kerri is quite happy this mix up occurred. Her family loved staying at the Badlands/White River KOA and weren’t thrilled with what they saw of the Cedar Pass Campground. You can listen to the whole story and find out why the KOA was such a hit on Episode #75 of Campground of the Week.
You can also read Kerri’s own blog post on the Badlands/White River KOA, and find all her recommendations for activities in and around Badlands National Park.
Many visitors simply make a day trip out of the Badlands, stopping by on their way to Mt. Rushmore, or driving out for the day. Kerri recommends staying at least a night or two and really enjoying the unique and stunning beauty of the region.
A special thank you to the sponsors of Campground of the Week for supporting weekly content for all our RV and camping fools:
We will see you at the campground!
