The Great Outdoors

When you are RV camping at Badlands/White River KOA, you will be less than four miles from Badlands National Park, which is maintained by the National Park Service and is open to visitors from around the world. It covers over 244,000 acres of mixed-grass prairie and other ecosystems. Dozens of mammal species, nine reptile species, six amphibian species, hundreds of bird species, and close to 70 butterfly species make their homes here. The night sky is spectacularly dark, and telescopes are provided for viewing. Ranger programs are available for visitors of all ages. Both the Ben Reifel Visitor Center and the White River Visitor Center provide informational displays, exhibits, and restroom facilities. The Badlands Natural History Association bookstore offers books on the area’s natural and cultural history as well as gifts and souvenirs. The on-site restaurant offers locally and regionally sourced dishes including Sioux Indian Tacos, South Dakota-produced wine and beer, and locally supplied organic coffee.The Badlands Petrified Gardens chronicle the largest petrified trees and logs ever found in the area. The museum features prehistoric mammal and sea fossils, a fluorescent mineral display, agates, rocks, minerals, and crystals. Specimens include ammonite, titanothere, sand crystals, oreodont, and fossils of dinosaur leg bones, dinosaur tracks, saber tooth tiger footprints, and petrified logs. Make sure to check this out with your campervan rental.The Pine Ridge National Recreation Area is also easily accessible when you are camping at the Badlands/White River KOA. It covers 6,600 acres and was established by an Act of Congress to provide backcountry outdoor recreation opportunities in a primitive/semi-primitive environment. These activities include hiking and walking, biking, boating, horseback riding, hunting, nature study, and cross-country skiing. The Pine Ridge Trail is a 40-mile multi-use trail that passes through grassland, ponderosa pine forest, creek bottoms, canyons, and open ridges with views of the nearby buttes. The eastern end begins at the Spotted Tail Trailhead, and the western end is at the West Ash Trailhead. Motorized vehicles are restricted, and there are no developed facilities. The ranger district office is located in Chadron, NE.

Exploring the Area

Rapid City is where you’d want to go if you’re in the mood for big-city attractions and amenities while you’re renting an RV. It is the second-most populous city in South Dakota, and it is known as the City of Presidents after the life-size bronze statues decorating the downtown. There is a walking tour that highlights these statues. Rapid City is both a tourist town and a university town (Black Hills State University, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Oglala Lakota College’s He Sapa College Center, National American University, Western Dakota Technical Institute, John Witherspoon College, and several smaller schools) so there is plenty of culture for visitors to experience, including the Journey Museum, the Dahl Arts Center, the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, Art Alley Gallery, the Black Hills Symphony Orchestra, and Main Street Square. There are also plenty of service stations, truck stops, and convenience stores with both gasoline and diesel fuel.This KOA is near the Rosebud Indian Reservation, home of the Sicangu Oyate (the Upper Brulé Sioux Nation), also known as Sicangu Lakota, and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe (RST), a branch of the Lakota people. The reservation itself features large areas of ponderosa pine forest, grasslands, deep valleys, steep hills, ravines, and lakes. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe owns and operates Rosebud Casino, which is partially powered by one of the country’s first tribally owned wind turbines. Other tribal-related attractions include the Sicangu Heritage Center at Sinte Gleska University, the Buechel Memorial Lakota Museum, and the Sinte Gleska University bison ranch with traditional Lakota buffalo ceremonies, all of which you can access when you are camping with an RV.


It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

Class C

Popular with small families and first-time RV drivers who want a little more room than a van. Comparable to driving a truck.

Camper Van

The smallest and nimblest of fully enclosed RVs. Drives like a van. Loves posing for Instagram.

Class B

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Truck Camper

If you can drive a truck, you can drive a truck camper. Makes roughing it significantly less rough.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
