Blue Water Acquires Badlands/White River KOA Holiday

Ocean City, Maryland-based outdoor hospitality specialist Blue Water continues its rapid expansion by adding White River/Badlands KOA Holiday to its portfolio, the fifth KOA property under Blue Water Management.

As per a press release, just a few minutes away from Badlands National Park, White River/Badlands KOA Holiday is known as the Oasis of the Badlands. Visitors can spot wildlife, including buffalo and pronghorn deer, and the picturesque Badlands Mountains is a popular hiking spot.

“Badlands/White River KOA is another perfect opportunity to add a unique destination getaway to our portfolio,” said Todd Burbage, CEO of Blue Water.

Providing guests with access to natural resources like the rugged beauty and stunning geography of the Badlands with so many opportunities for adventure is what Blue Water is about. This is a destination that guests will want to return to year after year to enjoy all that the Badlands has to offer.”

Of the 146 sites on the property, 88 are RV sites that offer unique glamping options, including a yurt with a skylight for prime star viewing, teepee, and camping cabins.

The Badlands/White River KOA Holiday is two hours away from Mt. Rushmore and near Badlands Loop State Scenic Highway.

As part of their partnership with the association, guests can use the ubiquitous Black Hills maps provided by the Black Hills & Badlands Tourism Association.
