The Mt. Rushmore KOA was very nice. Big store and nice sites. Pretty view looking up through the campground to the Black Hills. DO NOT follow your GPS, it will take you in a back dirt service road. Get directions off their website. Easy drive to Mt. Rushmore.

As I remember, the Niagra Falls KOA was pretty plain jane. But I don't recall anything really negative.

Montana KOA's

I have styed at both the Livingson ( Paradise Valely) KOA and the West Yellowstoen KOA both were great, clean , good WI-FI. I had a tent camper at the time and the bear patrool at the West Yellowstone at night was most helpfull.

The Paradise Valley one is ON the yellowstone river. 50 feet from bed to fishing...

Great breafast, hot clean showers and bath rooms at both.

Now that we have moved up woudl enjoy it even more..

We stayed at the Suagerties NY KOA a few weeks ago. Very nice, clean and very friendly staff. Pull through sites were a bit close, but the back in's were extremely roomy. Fishing pond didn't seem like much, but my boys ended up getting a ton of fish, including a nice catfish. So to them, it was the best cammpground they have ever been to!(Happy kids = happy parents!). Completely wooded and private, even had a frisbie golf course through the woods!

stayed at the watkins glen one recently - really liked it - nice owners many different types of sites to choose from....loved the hiking trail for our dogs -- thought it'd be short and a straight path but they really made it interesting.....
definitely recommend...a bit pricey though as it was a Nascar weekend - (we didn't know...)

One of the MOST BEAUTIFUL KOA's we've been to is the Yellowstone West KOA in Montana. FANTASTIC facility in a BEAUTIFUL part of the world. We've been to SEVERAL - some good (mostly CO, WY, and NM), some not so good (Estes Park, CO - rack 'em, pack 'em, and stack 'em, TOO SMALL!). TYPICALLY you can't go wrong with a KOA - you know what you're going to get!!

By far our favorite campground yet is Monroe County KOA - it's in Michigan just north of the Ohio border along US-23.
Large swimming pond with beach all the way around, big water slide, fishing pond, bike and boat rentals, mini-golf (kinda lame but free), giant outdoor chess set, big playgrounds for big kids and one for little kids, ball fields, even a fenced in playground just for pets. We stay there for a week every summer, there is so much for the kids to do they are busy all day with the different activities. And on rainy days, it's only a few minutes away from Cabela's, the kids always love that too.
We've looked at a lot of KOAs, but that's our favorite one by a mile.

We stayed at this location this past weekend. It is just east of Chicago in northern IN. It was a great place-clean, staff friendly, lots for kids to do. We plan on going back. Kathy
