Great spot in the middle of Rushmore and Crazy Horse. We were in cabin #12 and it had a great view and was very quiet. We all slept amazingly. The beds are super comfy and the whole place was very clean. We saw a chipmunk the the porch each morning. All the supplies you need to make and prepare food...

Unfortunately our check-out process or lack there of ruined our experience here so we won't be staying here in the future. When we called to book the place after looking online we were under the impression that we were in a private cabin. Upon arrival we realized that one cabin is divided into two separate areas. Not a huge deal...

My best friend and I camped here for one night and it was great. The place was fairly full but surprisingly quiet. It was the week after Sturgis so that probably helped a lot. Still, plenty of families and motorcycles, but everyone was respectful and quiet. Campsite is clean and right in the foothills. Bathrooms are clean, flushable toilets, hot...

Let me start by saying my family arrived at 5:30pm to check in and left an hour later. My family is made up of seasoned campers, tent and RV alike. Our most recent trip was traveling from Southern California to 7 different states and we had stayed at 5 different campsites up until trying to stay at Kemp's Kamp. The...

This is one of the BEST CAMPGROUNDS we have ever camped at !!! We usually tent but this year we chose to get a cabin. We stayed in cabin 1 which was fantastic, it was close to the pool. As we walked around the campground the sites were very nice, enough space for tent (the canopy is great) and the...

My wife and I stayed in the cabins and we were impressed with them. The only downfall was we thought they were individual cabins. They are 2 in 1. Yep the walls are thin and could hear the people next door talk. We are there only from 7 pm to 6 am. Otherwise we are out and about. The cabin...

We stayed the first week in July. Kemps Kamp has new cabins #7-14 located up the hill from the old campground. The cabins are not individual units, but two units per building. If you decide to stay there bring earplugs, there is no insulation in the walls between the two units. You will not just hear a murmur of conversation,...

I called to see if we could reserve a site, I am well aware of the sturgis rally coming up and since we are going a week before the rally begins thought I should nail down accommodations. The gentleman asked for my dates and then asked if I was a biker. I said no I wasn't and he immediately said...

We had reservations for three days to stay at Kemps Kamp. Traveling from several states over that day, I called from the road to let the campground we would be arriving late. Marlena told me they closed at 8pm and if we were arriving later to keep driving. She suggested the KOA down the street. We got in about 10pm...

I called to inquire if there was any availability for a date in early August as we'd be traveling through and the lady who answered the phone answered sooooo rudely that that was Sturgis and NO! I tried asking if she could give me recommendations but before I could finish she cut me off to let me know that she...
