View from our campsite


This was your typical KOA, with sites crammed closely together. But we didn’t come for the ambience or the amenities, but rather the campground’s close proximity to Devils Tower National Monument. And when you consider the striking views of the iconic tower, this campground cannot be beat.

Facility: 3/5

The sites are grass, and very close together. The roads are all gravel. Our pull thru site was too short to park our Jeep in front of the motorhome, so we had to parallel park. We barely had enough room to get the car off the road. All the sites near us were basically the same. The parking lot is large, though, and you can easily unhook your toad there.

Restrooms: 5/5

There are two bathhouses at the campground. The showers looked as if they’d recently been renovated, and they were gorgeous. There was shiny new tile and fixtures, and everything was sparkling clean. 

Amenities: 5/5

The campground features an outdoor heated pool, a playground, a nightly hayride, and a nightly viewing of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The laundry facilities were nice and clean.

Location: 5/5

You can see the entrance to the monument from the KOA’s parking lot. 

Pet Friendly: 5/5

The campground is pet friendly, and there was a small fenced in area for dogs.

Overall Rating: 4.6

Summary: If you’re looking for a campground close to Devil’s Tower, you cannot get any closer than this KOA, unless you stay at the Belle Fourche River Campground inside Devils Tower National Monument. It is a dry campground that costs $20.00 per night. Max. RV length is 35 feet. Our site at KOA was $46.79 plus tax with our KOA membership discount.

Cell Phone Signal: We were only able to get two bars with both AT&T and Verizon.

Conclusion: Would we stay at Devils Tower KOA again? Yes, if we decide to visit the tower again.

  1. We stayed here in 2015. It wasn’t very busy when we were there. It was a great place to stay. We actually rode our ebikes up the road to the tower. We saw the prairie dogs up close and personal on the roadside. We were in a pull through and it seemed like we had lots of room with our 39 foot motorhome and a car on a tow dolly. Your pictures look just like ours. It was truly a once in a lifetime moment when thinking about the movie.
