We camped here in a 40' rig. The park is located about a 1/4 mile off of I-90 in a grove of Cottonwood trees. The owner was quite helpful and pleasant. They definitely cater to local area clientele, and on weekends you will notice it more. Everybody knew everybody here. The water pressure and electric worked fine. Sites were fairly close together, but it was workable. For an overnighter, it was fine. My Verizon phone was 4 bars and our Millenicom MiFi was 4G LTE. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, shaded, and close to I-90 with no freeway noise. We were there on a weekend and many families were there. The quiet hours are from 11PM - 8 AM. Unfortunately, some parents allowed their small children to be out riding bikes until after 10 PM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our level full hookup site was small in width , the sewer was right next to our picnic table. The water had good pressure and good electric. Had a little road noise from the interstate but not real bad. The sites and road were rock and made for a little dust. Getting to corn palace was easy as was the other attraction. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A cozy little campground right off I-90. Very friendly owner who offers a lot of amenities in a small space. We didn’t have a chance to try the game room or swimming pool, but both looked nice. Wi-Fi wouldn’t connect, but worked once the router was reset inside the office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice older park. Old KOA.? SHADED sites. Real quiet Labor day eve. Near the interstate but not much road noise. Had a tire problem and the owners recommended a place for repair. Good suggestion; they took good and fair care of us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is nice. It is almost all shaded and site are a nice size. It is convenient to the interstate but not much noise. All the stores and amenities just a mile or two away. It gets busy on the weekends so I would make a reservation if possible. We stayed here three nights and would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
VERY FRIENDLY!!! We were just passing through the area and only stayed for one night, but it was a good experience. It is grassy, and the trees make it very peaceful. It was quiet and the atmosphere was very calm. If you are following your GPS it will take you to EAST Spruce St., when the park is located on WEST Spruce St. I spoke with the owner and he agreed that most GPS systems made this error. So just double check the address once you put it in the GPS. We camped in a fifth wheel, which they didn't have a pull through for, but the man at the office was very nice and offered to help back in the trailer. AT&T worked perfectly. We were placed in the back of the park and the wi-fi still worked great. If we were staying for an extended period of time cable would be nice, but for one night it was well worth not having television. The price we paid for this park was very reasonable for the experience we had. It is roughly 3 miles from the Cabela's and Walmart located at exit 332. I would recommend this lovely little park to anyone for a good experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground appears to be an old KOA facility. The campground was acquired by new owners 2 years ago and they appear to be working hard to make improvements. The campground is near enough to I90 to be "easy on" and "easy out" but far enough away to not have the road noise be a problem. A big plus is the mature hardwood trees that provide plenty of shade in the summer and give the feel of being out in the woods. The campground has interior gravel roads that are level along with pull through sites for big rigs. The only drawbacks we noted were the dated pool (cracked concrete apron) and bathrooms, which were dimly lit and are not handicap accessible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have said, the owner bought the park a couple years back and has been fixing it up. It is all true. The staff is great and the location is wonderful. We stayed as a one night stay and will be back We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I must whole-heartedly agree with the other, recent reviews. I called to see if they could accommodate a 40' moho. The owner answered the phone and was very courteous and helpful. I reserved a site. Upon arrival, he took me in his golf cart to make sure I was happy with the site. I was able to pull in the pull-through site, without unhooking, with ease. Owner informed me that he has had the park a couple of years and it was run down when he bought it. He has done a great rehab job. Several full-time rigs here, but no junk. My site was shaded. Pull through sites have 30 amp with 50 amp back-ins available at no additional charge. Great, convenient over-night or a great place for extended trip to explore the area. "Bravo" to the owner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient location near I-90 but far enough away to avoid highway noise. We did hear an occasional train but it wasn't loud or often enough to be disturbing. On a 100+ degree day we were glad to have the shade of mature trees. The host was pleasant and helpful, escorting us to our site and making sure all hookups worked for us. We were just passing through, but would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Convenient location, friendly, conscientious owner. Seems to be dedicated to improving the property after purchasing about two years ago. Pool looked nice but we did not use. Owner helped pick site to fit us in best and assisted with parking. Area is suffering through terrible drought so that affected the look of the place, but access road was oiled to control dust. Had 50 amp site which was good for a 108 degree afternoon! Good for a stopover to see the Corn Palace, Cabela's, etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good campground - very shaded, nice sites, no pull-through for 50 amp, but 30 amp was enough - cool in evenings. Easy sites to get into with big rig - we had 40' and tow vehicle. Satellite not too good - has nice pool. Owner very friendly, helped us to our sites and came by later to check on us. Price reflects Good Sam discount. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner was outgoing and friendly...and it shows they are working hard to renovate this park. Tree cover was a bit iffy for satellite TV, but he told us to pick whichever site would work... and a pull through at the back worked fine. Electrical outlets are upside down for 30 amp cords... usable but needed a bungee to keep surge arrester connected. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park; friendly staff; laundry room and restrooms were very clean and well kept. Quiet even though close to the interstate. Park wasn't even half full due to the season so we had lots of room. Nice trees for shade. Nice playground for kids. Lots of grass for walking dog. Would definitely stay again if passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects a Good Sam discount. New owners are going all out to bring this park back. And so far so good. Showers/restrooms in good shape. Enjoyed the swimming pool. And the shade of the trees. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
New owners in 2011 that are working hard to upgrade the park. Lots of gravel hauled in, working to re-paint everything and Wi-Fi added. Daily, weekly, and monthly stays are welcome (We stayed all summer!) Very friendly owners that are on site 24/7. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a different experience as we were here the end of September and never saw anyone. There were 5 or 6 other rigs there but no one was in them or in the office. They left a note on the door for us and did not come to collect the fee so we left a check. We stayed here 2 nights and found it to be easy access off the highway and quiet. The shade trees were nice. It is close to town and to the Corn Palace which we came to see. We would stay here again when we are passing through and will recommend it to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice little park for an overnight stay or two. It is nice and shady, but definitely older and a little tired looking. Staff were very helpful and friendly. It was right off the freeway so it was convenient for easy-on and off and even though it was off a major city street it was quiet at night. We would stay here again for an overnight on the way to or from destinations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an ok campground but nothing special. Sites were level and the restrooms/showers were clean. This campground is fine for an overnight campground. Price was reasonable. Staff was friendly and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was right off of I-90 and good for an overnight. Older park, with older facilities, however, the campground and bathrooms were clean. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older facility. We stopped here over night. It appeared that this campground was mostly occupied by long term workers. Never the less, it was quiet, except for some highway noise from I-90. Inside with the air conditioner running we couldn't hear it. The host was friendly and helpful. Sites are all level. Interior roads and sites are dirt, not gravel. It probably gets muddy when it rains. There were some muddy spots left over from recent rains. The sites are somewhat close together, with grass in between. This is a good campground for overnighting, but I wouldn’t want to stay here any longer. I would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a family-run park and the service shows it. We arrived at Dakota Campground on the week-end during the Mitchell Rodeo, one of the biggest events of the year. The woman at the office said she thought they were full but would be happy to check. We travel with the pipeline being put in the area and would be long-term campers. This probably added to her helpful attitude but I would say she was naturally a very lovely person to deal with anyway. We were in luck because another long-term camper had pulled out earlier in the week. The employee helping us was part-time and double-checked with her boss to make sure we’d be able to keep our spot. She helped us get the camper backed in and told us about the amenities such as the laundry area, showers and the underground pool. We’ve never been in Mitchell in our life and I’m pleased to say that this campground has provided a very good impression of the people in the area. We’ve had our spot for a few days now and I couldn’t be happier. We’ve been able to get the satellite set up, they have mail delivery available (it comes in at the office and the owner brings it to your spot) and they have ‘curb-side’ trash pick-up every day. Absolutely would highly recommend this to any friend or family that needed a nice, quiet but family-friendly place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pull thru site was level and quiet. The water didn't work at first, but staff quickly corrected it. The laundry was dirty. Would use again for an overnight stay. We were in a 38' motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very pleasant for a night's stop over. Plenty of shade. Clean restrooms and showers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
The owner was very helpful and friendly, bathrooms and shower were immaculate. Abundant shade. A good place to spend the night. June 2003 in a 36' MH We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Nice, clean, quiet CG with helpful owners. Hot Tub near pool. All sites were shaded, and the trees are kept trimmed as to not create an obstruction to the rigs. Saw large MH's there. We've stayed here three times in the past, and will again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The lady who answered the office at 5 PM was in her sleeping attire, wearing pajama pants, strange attire. She just about said hello and we got the impression that we were a intrusion into her life. The entire RV park is extremely close to the interstate and was really noisy, due to traffic noise. Trees were low and in great need of trimming. The road into the park from the interstate is very narrow and needs careful navigation, be careful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly owners, exceptionally clean grounds, shower rooms, and bathrooms. Lots of things to keep our 4 year old grandson busy. Close to I-90, easy off and on. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground. The owners were very nice and helpful. It was easy in and easy out. The spaces were adequate. The only downside was the Internet, which was not really there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a family owned RV park in a grove of trees. It is near to the highway but not noisy. It just had a good feel to it. I liked it a lot and would return. We managed to get our satellite to work. The pool was locked but they unlocked it so our grandson could swim. The sites are dirt and gravel but have nice separation. The managers were very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground, level sites, everything is very clean. The owner is friendly and helpful. It would be a great place for a peaceful few days of rest or for small RV rallies. We had good hookups. Our only negative was the trees that prevented our use of the Dish satellite antenna. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We would stay here again for a few days if we were passing through the area. Pros: level gravel sites, very good hookups but water pressure a bit low, many trees but satellite accessible, complimentary WiFi is good, nice small swimming pool, and very nice owners. Cons: water pressure is a bit low, and no recycling on site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean campground with friendly hosts. Sites were level and well maintained. Pool area was quaint, but very clean. There was some road noise from the interstate, but not enough to disrupt any outdoor activities. This was a great overnight campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great location off I-90 (10 min from Mitchell); close but couldn't hear the interstate noise. Super shady (a plus!), mowed, narrower pull through spots. More weeds than play grass around camper spots, but plenty of grass around the swings and horseshoe areas. Rock roads (not paved) was a problem for our 5 year old with his bike, but fine for our 9 and 11. Container for recycling. Courteous owners (spaced everyone out), small necessities on site (ice, milk, eggs, tp). Bathrooms were older but had new wood around for the shower and bathroom stalls. Ledge areas to set clothes and items outside shower so they don't get wet, and plenty of hot water with easy to adjust controls. Homemade 8-9 holes mini golf, clubs & balls (& horseshoes) were setting out so you could play anytime. My son's favorite! Pool was older, but clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly place, very kind owners that waited up for us to arrive after closing. Wish the showers and restrooms would be a bit more updated as we stood on a wood plank for showering. All in all, would probably stay again, but hoping for better shower facilities. I may be off a little on my price, but much better than a KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Good Sam rate. This is a very nice "overnight" stop conveniently located close to I-90 (no road noise). The park has lots of pretty shade trees, which is great on a hot day, but will prevent most satellite reception. There isn't any cable, so it is strictly "over the air". We did manage to get satellite, but most sites probably won't. The pool looked nice and inviting. For families with kids, there is a nice play area. For those of us with pets, there is a nice dog walk area in the back. Owners were very nice and truly seem to enjoy their park. They even had a sign boasting their 24th Anniversary at the park. Park is located about 5 miles outside of Mitchell where there is a WalMart and plenty of other stores that might interest RVers. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park. Easy in/out, even towing. Long/wide sites for big rigs facing south for those with satellite. Only 5 miles from Mitchell and excellent Internet with our card. The rate with Good Sams is $30.50 for full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a terrific RV park. I agree with prior reviews. Maybe not real scenic but it has lots of grass and trees. Sites are adequately spaced. I asked for a site with a view to the south for our satellite antenna to work and got one. Very friendly couple run/own the park. We will plan to stay here when we pass through Mitchell again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy to maneuver around the park while still hooked up. Park set up for children with pool and playground. Owners live on site and take good care of the place. Easy access from I90 - 5 miles from Mitchell. Close to the conveniences of town. Lots of shaded lots, but there are sites to access the sat TV. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner was friendly and very informative. Showers and rest rooms where clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
[ 9 / 10 ]
The rate is based on 1 week. This is a Mom and Pop with the same owners for 40 years, and they are fantastic. The electric is excellent at 122 VAC, modern sewer hook ups and fine water, both pressure and quality. Some pull through sites approach 100.' The turns are wide, the trees are set back and trimmed high, so no scratching. There are beautiful mature oak trees here, plenty of shade, or chose a more open spot if you wish. Roads and pads are rock but very well maintained (no wholes or puddles) with level sites. We are full time and have stayed here every other year for 12 years, it is one of our favorite parks. Caution: the park entrance is 1000' SOUTH of I-90 exit #325. Many GPS units will try to send you North. Our 45' bus and large tow car were very happy here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is easily accessible from I-90. The management was very nice, friendly and helpful, escorted us to our site. The campground is clean and well maintained. Lots of shade trees so specify if you want to have access to satellite service. Had a very pleasant overnight stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient to I-90, this park provides a comfortable stay with it's tree-shaded sites and quiet atmosphere. Gravel interior roads and sites that are fairly level, with hookups conveniently placed. There are only a few satellite-friendly sites and no cable TV. The free Wi-Fi worked well during our stay and Verizon cell and data were strong. The friendly and helpful owner will escort you to your site and make sure the hookups work. Shopping in Mitchell is eight miles down the road with a Cabela's and other stores. A nice stay. We'll stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A really-nice RV campground run by mom and pop, not a big company, who are very friendly and helpful. Quiet location and convenient to Mitchell. Park is very clean. Small on-site general store is well-stocked with sundries and food items. Rates are very reasonable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a cute off the Interstate campground with lots of trees. Very quiet and the owners and their family are so friendly. It was very enjoyable visiting with them. Lots of space to walk our two dogs and very quiet. Great place to stop and rest for the next days travel. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after 10 PM and were charged less than the actual rate. The campground owner was very nice. He put us right by the clean bathrooms. We were actually camping in a Van not a truck camper. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
$19 per night reflects weekly rate. This is a nice, small, quiet, level, gravel and grass campground right off route 90 without highway noise. The campground is surrounded by farms. Downtown Mitchell, complete with Wal-Mart, grocery store, diesel and the Corn Palace, is about 6 miles away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet park with shade trees right off the interstate. Little road noise, and owners were helpful and friendly. Nice relaxing park. Not sure how it would be if crowded, but since it wasn't, there was a lot of space between units. It looked like some back to back sites, but I did not see anyone situated like that. I would stay again if passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park hosts very friendly, beautiful trees, large pull through sites some with fire pits, picnic tables. The swimming pool is older put very clean and we enjoyed it. There is a small, no-frills miniature golf course and a play ground. Close to freeway but because you are surrounded by corn fields you don't notice or hear it. The only complaint we have is that the owners grandchildren were riding around on an ATV with guns and shooting ground squirrels. We don't have a problem with the guns, we just felt it was not appropriate behavior in an RV park with people, pets, and expensive RV's around. Plus, who wants to listen to guns shooting when they are trying to relax. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground lives up to its name. Big rig friendly, large shaded level lots, space between lots. It's not packed in like sardines as many other campgrounds do. Our stay was more than a month and rates were reasonable. They have daily, weekly, and monthly rates and accepted Good Sam. We utilized 50 amp service, water, and sewer and enjoyed our stay. The Wi-Fi was best at the office but reached some sites in proximity to the office. We were also able to get satellite for Direct TV from our lot. This campground was quiet even though it is about 1/4 mile from I-90. When near full capacity, the other guests were polite and followed the rules. Campground is dog friendly. There is lots of walking area, a swimming pool, a putt-putt golf and playground with swings and jungle gym for kids. I would definitely stay here again when in the area and recommend it to others to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They no longer honor Passport America, but do honor Good Sam. An easy on/off the interstate. Good gravel roads with lots of room for turning. The owner was very helpful with information. The only issue we had it the sewer attachment was quite high making it difficult to drain. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great little park with friendly and attentive owner/managers. Definitely family friendly and big rig friendly. As others have noted, lots of shaded sites so let the owners know if you need a satellite-friendly location. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here every year for 4 or 5 days. The owners of 25 years will make you feel as family. Large pool for the kids, which is rare in this area, and the toughest miniature golf we have ever played. Shaded and open sites available so mention if you need satellite. Corn Palace is a must as is shopping at the worlds largest Cabella's. Fanny Horner,s for breakfast or lunch and Signature Steakhouse dinner, (very reasonable) raises their own beef, (Angus) try their Prime Rib. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet campground. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was like parking in someone's backyard. There is not a lot for the kids to do, but that is the only negative I can say. It is very good for an overnight stay to see the Corn Palace. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Attractive park just a few miles west of town. Although surrounded by open cornfields, the park is loaded with beautiful mature trees. Gravel and dirt roads and sites with grass in between. Sites fairly level. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet park, easy to get to, nice and shady. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi is poor; only reaches a few sites near office. We only stayed one night en route but felt this campground was a good value. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place for overnight stay. Friendly staff, easy on off I-90. This was a very reasonable price for off season. A few miles from Mitchell and the Corn Palace. Good Wi-Fi and a 12 channels with just antenna. Bathroom older but very clean. Will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Family owned and run for 25 years. Even Grand kids work,work,work. Wide turns and trees trimmed. Very green and manicured park. Pick shade or open (satellite) site, roads and pads solid, crushed granite. Friendliest people you will ever meet. Fire rings and wood. A hand built putt-putt course that is the most difficult in the USA. Our 45' bus had no problems parking here. Signature Steak House raises, and cuts their own beef and is reasonably priced. Visit Corn Palace and Candelas nearby in Mitchell. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly owners, escorted us to the site. It is very close to I-90. It features, shady, attractive, and grassy sites. There is a nice pool. The WiFi was marginal but we were in a far corner of the park. There is TV over the air for about 3 or 4 channels. The GPS instructions are wrong and there are no signs at I-90 exit. Trust the campground book directions as campground is just south of Interstate. We would stay here again but would ask for a site in the back away from interstate noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here while traveling through South Dakota. I think of all the RV parks we stayed at on our long trip from North Carolina to Alaska, this was the nicest state-side RV park we stayed at. The staff was very friendly, the sites were well-shaded, pool was clean, and lots to do there at the park, in addition to all the things to see in nearby Mitchell. I don't have anything negative at all to say. If we ever traveled through again, we would definitely stay here again. It was truly family-friendly. Unlike some we stayed at. We camped here in a Motorhome.
People were nice and lead us to the site. Sites are gavel, but needed to be blocked to get level. The pool was nice but crowded. Two exits west of the Corn Palace - definitely a place to see if you are even close to the area. Perogies BBQ, exit 332-- the brisket is delicious. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sometimes a campground stay is made better by the friendliness of the owners, and this was one of those. Although struggling to open after a horrible winter, the owners went out of their way to make sure the water worked, our site was clear, and that we had a good overnight stay. Bare trees and brown grass with snow in the shade detracted from the appearance, but this looks like a pretty, tree-shaded park in the summer. Verizon Aircard and cell service were good and the park was dark at night with only a minimum of noise from the interstate. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very helpful parking escort and big spots at this park. There's lots to do, clean showers, and it's quiet all night with no town noise. For 22 bucks: you should not miss this one on your way by. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 2 / 10 ]
The campground looked ok when we arrived, and they said they had Wifi. Well, the wifi didn't work and all the owner could do was get very young kid who didn't know how to do anything but play games on the computer. Also, when asked about passport (we found it in passport book) the owner complained about not being able to make any money. It rained and the black mud was everywhere. We will not camp here again and would send travelers on to Mitchell to either of the passport parks. They are cheaper and things work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground was OK for overnight stop. Five miles west of Mitchell in a rural setting. Would be better for a few days stay. All hookups, local TV reception and WiFi was OK. A heavy rain with good drainage for our stay. On next trip we would stay here if staying more than one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a few miles west of town with easy access to the freeway. There was not much highway noise. Gravel roads and sites were grass with picnic table. Lots of trees but there are some sites where satellite TV is OK. Verizon air card worked well for internet. Pull through sites are fully adequate size wise. This rate is for a full hook-up, 50 amp is $2 more. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In reading the other reviews I can say that I’m happy other folks had an enjoyable stay at Famil-E-Fun Campground. Unfortunately that was not at all our experience. I called to make a reservation on June 19, 2009. I was quoted a price of $315 per month. The owner asked me to call a week before we’d be there to let them know our schedule for arrival. I did call the campground on July 10th to let them know we’d be arriving on July 18th. We were traveling from Aberdeen, SD. I spoke to his wife. She was quite friendly and gave me directions. I also called on the evening of July 18th to let them know we were on our way but it would be late. I was told they had no spots open due to the rodeo. I was a little surprised because I thought that was the point of making a reservation. This wound up not being an issue because we had a blow-out on the way and wound up staying at a truck stop on the way. We arrived at the Famil-E-Fun Campground at 10 a.m. on the 19th. We were told that they were very full and we wouldn’t be able to park until after 1:00 p.m. That wasn’t a problem for us. They then told us that since the season was so busy the rates had been adjusted and the monthly rate was now $510 per month. This was an increase of $195. I asked him how that was possible when I was quoted a rate of $315. He just kept saying because it was so busy. He did say the price would drop after August. I guess it would, when there would be many other options for a person to choose from. I mentioned that he was price-gouging, which he did deny. I did ask him why I wasn’t told about the increase and he told me it was because I hadn’t asked. What? Then he told me it was partly because they’d had a lot of cancellations and he was trying to recoup the money. Well, he was full, so how could he be out of any money? Regardless, I had called. Then he told me it was because we were late. He didn’t have a spot for us anyway, so that certainly was a ridiculous thing to say. He kept telling us that there were no spots anywhere in town and we were welcome to check for ourselves. He also told us that there is an extra charge for kids. For every child you have it is an extra $2 per night. We have no kids traveling with us but I did think that was a unreasonable charge. We did pay for one night and parked the RV to get the electricity for our refrigerator and freezer. We drove about 8 miles east and noticed another RV park, the Dakota Campgrounds. We pulled in and had a wonderful experience. We drove immediately back to Famil-E-Fun Campgrounds and got our camper. I will say that they gave us our check back for $22.50 (one day rate). I was surprised. I have been told from the locals in Mitchell that the campground caters to those wanting to stay one night and move on. My husband works on an oil pipeline and we stay for extended periods of time. We will be in the area for five months. This man's greed cost him over $1,500. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy on/off I-90 but heard no traffic noise. Easy to navigate roads and sites. All hookups worked well. Owners were extremely helpful when we became ill during our stay and needed to see a doctor. We will definitely stay here when back in the area! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was a great stop along I-90. It was easy to maneuver through and get into your spot with a big-rig. The Wi-Fi was terrible and was not working most of the time. The owners were very helpful with directing you to local businesses. Beware at check-in that they don't just start adding extra charges on the bill, assuming you want certain things. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An older park, but nice. The owners were very helpful and we had a wonderful big tree to sit under. And were still able to get our tv dish reception. We only stayed here one night but would stay here again when coming this direction. It was a nice quiet park and a welcome spot to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent overnight stop. Right off I-90, but there is a small hill between the park and the freeway, so we heard no traffic noise. The $16 Passport America rate for a 50-amp full-hookup pull-through site makes it a bargain. Gravel roads and large grass sites--easy maneuvering for big rigs. The power sagged to around 110 volts when we put a 30 amp load on a single leg. The park is well maintained and the family who owns the park runs a cheerful office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This family have been running this campground for 14 years. No vehicle washing is allowed. Campfire rings are provided. The rec room has pool table and videogames. Small store has limited groceries, ice, souvenirs, snacks and a big grin and hearty laugh. There is also a cabin available. The community-size pool is large and is drained, painted and filled yearly. Good Sam. Passport America. AAA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An older, well maintained park. Owners were friendly and helpful. Close to the freeway, but amazingly quiet. Sites were level and gravel. The pull-thru's were very long. Very nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Manager was friendly and helpful. The park is excellent. I'd stay here again. This is a city park, so it gets used by local folks too. There was traffic noise. The park is well maintained, mostly paved but some gravel sited. We got a site high above the lake, a very nice spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The people were very nice and this was a fine campground for us to use as we passed through Mitchell. It is very convenient to local attractions. The sites are very close together, but we had enough space to sit outside. It seemed to be a very family friendly place and the bathrooms were fine. The only negative comment I would make is that quiet hours were not enforced and it was a bit loud in the campsite next to ours. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park on lake, convenient to the Corn Palace. Grocery store and other shopping within 1/2 mile; Walmart not far away. Basic rate is $15, with add-ons for electricity, water, sewer, cable, which brings it to $24. Cable is adequate. Could only get wi-fi by sitting outside the office (which was closed most of the time as far as I could tell), but warning: the mosquitoes will carry you away! Bring lots of bug repellent. Water pressure was poor most of the time. Only a few sites have 50 amps - we had to settle for 30 because we needed a pull-thru. Not a lot of big-rig spots. Bathrooms were clean but typical state park-type, not a lot of privacy for the showers. Didn't see the laundry. Only a few other rigs in the park, so it was very quiet. We would probably stay here again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I stopped here for an overnight stay and found this place to be way too small, cramped, tight, or any other way you want to describe tiny sites and campground. The site next to us used their sewer hook-up, which we did as well, but the bad part is their sewer connection was right outside our door and next to our picnic table. The noise of the kids, cars on the road right outside the campground and ALL the bugs and the small sites made me write my first review for any campground we have ever visited. This is a place I can not and will not recommend to anyone ever. The only reason I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 is for the inexpensive $15.00 per night, $4.00 electric, $1.00 water and $1.00 sewer fees. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was nicer than expected. We had site 15, which is the only one with a view of the lake. We stayed on a Monday night so it was very quiet. Nice playground for the kids. We didn't use the shower facilities because they were not very private. I would have rated this campground a 9 but there was a lot of traffic noise and the train woke me up several times during the night. We would stay here again if traveling through Mitchell. The price included water and electric, and a bundle of firewood. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pricing is $15 for a site, $4 for electric, $1 for water, $1 for sewer, $3 for cable plus 8.5 percent tax. No senior discount. As mentioned before, sites are somewhat tight, but paved with nice grass between them. It was extremely crowded with kids all over on the weekend here. Verizon broadband was good. We would come back but would time it so it was during the week. Campground is north off exit 330, 3 miles to second traffic light then left. It is only a couple of blocks down on the left and just before the lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is run by the city. It has beautiful views no matter where you are in the park. We overlooked Lake Mitchell. The cable TV was tremendous. The restrooms are marginal. We would definitely return because this park is a gem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is ideally located on a beautiful lake with ample trails, and swimming and boating locations. The sites are close to each other and on weekends rather crowded. Nonetheless, the campground occupants are well behaved and things get quiet during the specified hours. Two thumbs up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is clean and the electricity and water are good. The water pressure is high so you may want to use your pressure reducer. The spaces can be a bit close together for a noncommercial park. There was adequate room however. Lots of trees and a nice playground for our grandkids. Plenty of room for our toad in front of the coach. The park hosts were friendly. The lake is beautiful. We would stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped here on the way back from the Black Hills. We had stayed at the KOA in Mitchell on the way to the Black Hills and here on the way back to MN. This park is older and more run down than the KOA. Some of the lake view sites on the outer loop had beautiful views that might score them a 9 or 10. Otherwise, the sites are very close together and some are rather short. Wi-fi is not available, but phone service was strong. This park is close to fast food and a grocery store if you need anything. Be careful with children riding bikes as some of the hills are very steep and dangerous. The park did have a newer playground which the kids seemed to enjoy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The base cost just to "show up" is $15. Oh, did you want hookups? Well, those are priced on a "cafeteria" plan. There is a separate charge for each of the following: Water, electricity, sewer, and cable. Strange, but in a way, fair. The price I am showing is the price for w/e/s only, without cable. I stayed two nights, and paid for cable one night, and didn't the other night. The cable was pretty decent. Without the cable, you can pull in two channels, FOX and NBC, via antenna. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon Air Card worked very well. The campground is pretty typical, with fire ring and barbecue grill at each site. The sites are gravel/dirt, with some grass between each site. If you have one of those expensive surge protectors from Camping World, they can be used here for your electric cord. The water connection is goofy. The water connection is dual and is placed between every other site. So, depending on what site you get, your water connection may be on the "wrong" side and you might require extra hose. Bathrooms and laundry were so so. There is a children's play area. This is a nice park for overnighting. If you don't tow a car, you are within walking distance of a good grocery store, liquor store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only stayed two nights but had a wonderful lake view up on a rise. Temperatures were moderate and windy. Park was beautiful, access to private beach at the lake. Pine trees and lots of shade. Loved the areas to walk with the dog. Very friendly staff, and helpful. Close to shopping and restaurants. Was a great place to spend some time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here because of a review we found on this site. Well maintained park owned by the City of Mitchell. Right on Lake Mitchell and close to attractions in town. Mitchell has a mosquito control program so the flying pests are nicely controlled. Would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay for the night. Wish I could have stayed here for awhile. Nice wide sites next to Lake Mitchell, which has a few trails around it to walk the dogs. Close to town, but far away enough to feel out in the open. I'll stay here again, but for a longer time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
No wifi but all the other hookups work well. The cable was good. This place has by far the best location of the campgrounds near Mitchell. We stayed in the off season and found all kinds of room. Our friends from town said this place is locally popular in summer and sometimes difficult to get in. Pricing is ala carte but $23 a night covers everything. We will come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'm surprised this campground has not been reviewed before. This is as good as it gets! Very well run campground operated by the City of Mitchell. You pay only for what you use. Basic $14. Water and sewer $1 each. Elec. $3.50 and cable $2.50. So full hookup with cable is only $22. Just on the north side of town, about 10 mins from I-90. Some small sites for tents and small RVs, some pull throughs for large rigs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price includes tax and my KOA discount. Power was very good. Water pressure was very good. The wifi was excellent at our site. Site was level and long. Park was very clean and staff were excellent. Park was quiet. Park is only 3 miles from Mitchell, so grocery shopping is very handy (Walmart, etc.) Holiday fuel station had the cheapest diesel and is a large truck stop so there is lots of room. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An OK park but the $44 a night for gravel and 5 motorhomes in park total. We were told that we had the last pull thru space and reserved it on the phone. Arrived and found lots of pull thru and good sites for TV reception. Nice thing about park is the space for dogs to run and enjoy the area without many people around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was pretty basic. Nothing special but not bad either. Small fenced in dog walk area where you can let your dog loose for a bit while you provide supervision or company for your pet. Very close to the Corn Palace, so very convenient. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a roomy, well-shaded, pull-through site which was one of many offered at this campground. This KOA is very convenient to the Corn Palace and is easy on/off of the main highway. It had a nice pool and clean laundry room as well as a playground and miniature golf for the children. We would recommend this campground for a short-term stay while seeing the nearby attractions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place just off the interstate. Great place to stay if you are going to the Corn Palace, which is only a few miles away. Very clean and the management is big into recycling. Nice pool and clean showers. Would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We liked this park alot. It was very hot, 107 when we got there, so we used pool, and the kids enjoyed. Level spots, nice people running Kampground, showers were very nice. Mini golf was OK. This was a good stopover in Mitchell. We would stay here again if we are this direction. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for overnight but if we were planning to stay it would have been a nice place for that. Helpful, friendly staff and nice layout. Only downside is proximity to the freeway but the noise isn't bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a good level pad beneath large, shady trees, but only had 30 amps and no dump. We were given a warm, efficient welcome and were escorted to our site. The facilities were "tired' and the bathrooms seemed to be inadequate for the number of campers. Never before have I had to line up to get a shower. They only had 3 for females. We ate dinner at a camp table, but not breakfast because of the flies. Lots of them! The campground is next door to a farm with cattle. We received a discount because my husband is a vet, but we still thought it was a little overpriced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here for 1 nite. very nice and clean, great owners and staff. Nice pull through sites with plenty of room. We saw many other BIG RIGS as well. No freeway noise at all as it's about 1.5 miles off the freeway. Good interior gravel roads. Very clean restrooms, laundry, and pool. The Wi-Fi from our camp site was excellent. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground with great staff! The campground is very convenient to the interstate but far enough away to be quiet. The staff/owner is great! When I inquired on a service station that could come give my toad a jump (battery died while being towed), the owner showed up with his vehicle and jumper cables!! Will definitely stay here again!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I needed an overnight stay and took a shot at this campground. Glad I did and have no regrets. Good directions and easy to find off Interstate. Quiet location. I had a good experience making reservations by phone with them, and this was reinforced when I arrived. I was met by a friendly staff, who helped me get to my site and get settled in. Sites were roomy, shaded, level. Lots of different kinds of rigs, from 5th wheelers to big giant ones. I saw that sites handled towed vehicles very adequately. I didn't use shower but peeked in to see what they looked like; restrooms and showers were immaculate. Store was small but had needed essentials if they were needed. I like how the on-site staff person told me what site he was on in case there was an emergency. Wi-Fi was excellent. Overall, great location if you are looking for an overnight stay traveling to or from Badlands and Black Hills. Would also stay longer if visiting local area. Well done and thanks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for one night on our way out west from Iowa. We arrived late, but called ahead and the host waited for us to arrive, which was very nice. The kamping kabin was clean and not too far from the bathrooms. the bathrooms were clean, as well. We did drive through the the rest of the campground the next day, and they have great shade trees and grass with nice full hookup pull-through sites. Overall, we'd recommend the Mitchell KOA to anyone looking for a peaceful night's rest off the major highway yet only minutes from town and the famous Corn Palace. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
The campground had just opened so there were only a couple other campers in the campground. The park looked well maintained and the host was very pleasant and helpful. We paid $39.83, I believe the base was $37 plus tax. We would stay there again if the need arises. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasant park in rural area, easy access from I-90, but road noise not obtrusive. Only a few minutes from Mitchell - don't miss the amazing Corn Palace - where there is everything you need. The staff very helpful, the internet is fast and reliable. Our only complaint is sites are a bit narrow. Rate represents KOA discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here just one night as we were making our way out West. Friendly staff and well-stocked store. New sewer lines were recently put in and our row of sites were not level. Better like the smell of cow manure because there is a farm nearby. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Clean and well maintained. There are family activities. Sites are very close together. There are gravel roads and sites. Our 5th wheel is 40 feet and it was easy to get in and out. Bathrooms were very clean. Lots of overnight traffic. Check out Chef Louie's restaurant and the smoked chicken at the Brig. We'll use this as an option to the Souix Falls KOA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground for one night on our way home from our trip to Mt. Rushmore. This campground was in a good location, just 3 miles east of Mitchell. It was easy to find off the I-90 with a mixture of treed and shaded sites. The staff was friendly, the Wi Fi connection was great and bathrooms were clean, although a little dated. This is definitely not a resort type campground. For a stopover after a long day of driving, it is a welcome break. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The hosts of the campground were very nice. Everything was in a nice order, and the customers service they give to each person is hard to find now days. The only issue was the bugs, but the amount of rain brought them out. Not the fault of the owners. Would recommend this place to anyone going through South Dakota. The campground was very close to the Corn Palace. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an ok spot for an overnight stop. The bathrooms were very clean and the water pressure was outstanding. Our site was level, but others complained their site was not. The WiFi never worked. I tried for two days. There was some space to walk our two active dogs, but you'll need bug spray. The bugs were vicious. There's also a pool for the kids. The hosts were very nice. The local pizza wasn't that great. The dough was under-cooked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 3 days while seeing the area attractions. The staff is friendly, but the sites are very close together. We did not have a fire ring although other sites did (we didn't ask for one). The pool was small but clean. Mini golf is free but only has 9 holes. The campground is close to I-90, but no noise was heard. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There is no real grass, more like poorly mowed weeds on each site. Staff was friendly. For the second year in a row we stayed and I've decided, never again! There is not a fire ring on each site, you have to ask if you want one. Playground equipment is in poor condition and a bit lacking! Sites are close together. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perfect one nighter stay. Easy on and off freeway. Nice pull-through sites. Friendly staff who guided us to our spot. Shaded area; nice dog walk; plenty of grass. Would recommend this to anyone heading east or west across I-90. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price is for a E/W only site, with KOA member discount. Best showers anywhere except home! Exceptionally friendly and helpful owner. Nicely shaded, level sites, buffered from the I-90 highway noise. Close to the action in Mitchell: the Corn Palace festival was starting when we were there. Would definitely stay here again, and for more than one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice KOA, last time we were through this area there were some negative reviews, but we found this to be a great park, but we prefer to the Sioux Falls KOA. It was off the interstate enough so you weren't bothered by highway noise. There are shaded pull through sites, lots of space, clean pool and bathhouse. The huge Wal-mart and Cabelas make this a convenient stop on your travels. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Easy access on and off I-90. Stopped here on our way to the Black Hills. Staff was extremely friendly and escorted us to our site. We were in a pull thru site near the cabins and playground. Playgrounds are older but clean. Sites are relatively close together. If you want more room in a site, ask to stay on the outer loop near the road. The road is quiet and these sites faced a farm. Wi-fi worked well and was fast. Overall a nice, clean and quiet place to stay for a night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our site was not level. Two dirt spots were present at our site for a potential fire ring, but no fire rings are provided. The view from our camp spot was the shed and what must be the camp manager's trailer home and all the junk around them. We woke up in the morning to a class A and its trailer parked in the road portion behind us. Maybe this is overflow camping? Bathrooms were steamy but somewhat clean. The place seemed busy and understaffed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice campground with easy access to the interstate. There is good location for services and a nice, level site. It is a pleasant park with plenty of campers moving in and out. There are some shade trees scattered about making a park-like atmosphere. It is about 3 miles to the town of Mitchell via back roads so we drove in to see the famous Corn Palace. A Pilot truck stop is nearby in Mitchell if you need diesel. There is a nice Walmart in town where we stocked up on groceries. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed overnight on the way from the Black Hills. Bathrooms were the cleanest that I have seen in a long time. Grounds were well maintained. Owner was very friendly and helpful. We will make this a stop over every trip to the hills. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I had to request a fire ring and was provided with an old washing machine drum that was difficult at best to start a fire in with the agitator present. The sites are very close together, and needed mowing. The staff was friendly and helpful however. The playground equipment old but functional. The pool looked nice but was too cold to use when we were there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here overnight on the way to the Black Hills. It's very quiet, just off I-90, but far enough away that you don't hear any highway noise. The sites were fairly level and we didn't have any trouble with the hookups. The restrooms were clean, but a bit dated. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Close to Interstate 90 at exit 335. All sites are pull throughs. Owners have obtained consultation regarding management of previously mentioned bug problems which has been successful. Nice pool and nicest laundry facilities we have seen for a long time. Owners friendly, laid back, and helpful. Lots of rigs come in late afternoon and early evening and most leave by 7 or 8 AM. Owners explain that they are primarily an overnight campground - "Nobody wants to spend much time in Mitchell; they are all on their way to somewhere else." Quiet and peaceful. If the wind is from the wrong direction there are odors from next door horse farm. We would go there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is excellent for an overnight stay. There are level sites, clean showers, and friendly office assistance. The only complaint is the extra charge for a pet. It was only $1.00 but annoying none-the-less and the only reason I didn't rate it a "10". We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice, quiet, clean campground outside the town of Mitchell on Hwy 38. Very friendly, helpful host/owner. Shaded sites. Large pet walk area. Clean pool, free putt-putt golf and horseshoes. Very good Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Can you say "BUGS" .. So many gnats and flies you couldn't open your mouth without them going in. Dusty campground but clean where it counts. Would stay for overnight if I had to but would rather just truck on next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Okay for overnight. Best of the three sites we checked in the area. Dusty. Lots of flies and gnats. If stuck I would stay here again but if possible I would keep trucking. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice campground, but not worth $45 a day. They do allow pets, but they charge extra...we did not realize that when we made the reservations. The sites for motorhome staying one day did not have any shade. If you were to stay more than one day make sure you ask for one with shade. Our site did have a picnic table but no fire pit. It was an OK place, clean, well maintained, but compared to other campgrounds, not worth the money. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Decent for overnight. Sites grassy, and some may be muddy in rainy weather. New owner is friendly, has many plans to upgrade and repair this older campground. Country feel, but some road noise, especially daytime, from county road. Campground is two miles from town, convenient for sightseeing, shopping, etc. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park with easy access from interstate. Also easy to enter park/sites with a big rig. Parking/distance/privacy from neighboring campers was just perfect. The only problem I had was it became a major ordeal to use the internet (they are using new wireless service that didn't have the "kinks" worked out yet.) Very helpful/friendly customer service! We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A clean park with friendly staff; lots of grassy area around sites; a clean and inviting swimming pool. Bike rentals available with a playground for the kids. The laundry room was clean and functional. I was told the wi-fi could be used close to the office, however, I was able to use it successfully from our site. We used this park as an overnighter and would do so again without hesitation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New owner this year. He is really friendly and always working. The sites are large and mostly pull thru. Mitchell is about 3 miles from park and good location from I90. Shade trees need trimming but owner is working on updating all the sites. Will have dog runs in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet park, level, shady sites. Hosts weren't very friendly, but that was okay since we didn't have to deal with them very much. Only a few miles outside of Mitchell, and you can get to town via Hwy. 38, as an alternate to taking the interstate. We'd stay there again and would recommend. We camped here in a camper.
Overnight is alright, but this place is very poorly maintained - trash blowing through the park, overflowing dumpsters. What grass that was cut was slipshod. It is obvious that no one is concerned about this place. Wouldn't stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was ok for the price. Although they say they have a swimming pool, they charge $5.00 per person to use it. Registration is in the Days Inn office which is some distance from the sites. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
$28.14 rate was with Escapees discount and included sales tax. Gravel pads are level for parking, but drop off at edge of RV. Their advertising says that they have cable TV and a pool. They have some type of cable, but we could not find network channels. They charge $5/person to use the pool. OK for the $28/night but no great deal since they gouged you to use the pool and the cable was marginal, at best. Also, no Wi-Fi. Convenient to the Interstate as long as you don't miss the 2nd turn, and even if you do you can enter the campground from the rear. OK for a nights stay if you want to see the Corn Palace. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty basic campground, but OK for an overnight. We were put in a spot that was a little small for us and kind of uneven, but we made it work. TV and Wi-Fi was OK. Location is right off I-90, but you need to get onto an access road from the main street to enter the park. A bit tricky. We wanted to see the Corn Palace and buy groceries, both of which we easily did from here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not a bad overnight. The sites were not huge but they were fine for our 41' 3 slide towing a pick-up. It was not manicurred and some of the grass needed to be cut but there was good cable TV and WiFi. It's close to 80 but the noise wasn't bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects 20% off. They offer 20% for Passport, since they no longer take it. Park has tried to level spaces, but only leveled where the RV sits. When you step out, could be very unlevel and a large drop in some sites. We were a bit surprised that they wanted $5 per person to use the pool. This campground is convenient to Corn Palace and I-90. Good for 1 night, but other local ones sound better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We normally do not look for much for a quick overnight stay. However, this park really did not meet our low expectations. The sites were very tight and the pads were to narrow for us to get both sides on it. Thus we had a difficult time getting our unit level (actually never did). During our stay we never saw a staff person after we checked in. The grounds were little more than a parking lot with a little grass and a few small trees. Maintenance did not appear to be a priority. There is an indoor pool but we never checked it out. If we needed an overnight stop in the area again, we would look for another option. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is not very well kept and has many full time residents. Trash was everywhere and the roads were terrible. We would rate the park a '3' if it were not for the shared pool with the Days Inn. Our kids had a blast and the pool facilities are well kept. The Wi-Fi reception was terrible from the park so we took our laptop to the pool in the Days Inn. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an okay park for just an overnight stay, but the interior roads were in terrible repair, large potholes, and sites were not level. We used Passport America, so price was good, but would never pay the full price for what they had to offer. After walking up the hill to R&R Park: I would stay there next time. Internet was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice friendly staff, free Wi-Fi and cable TV make up for the utilitarian setting right behind a gas station. Mostly long-term campers, but they were well mannered with no loud parties. Some noise from the highway but not too bad. We stayed two nights and would overnight again if needed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
My wife and I and our dog spent 1 evening at this campground. We arrived early evening and left first thing in the morning. It was very clean and nice amount of room and easy pull through, but for our taste it is to close to town. We enjoy trees and nature. This was all we could find on short notice. It took extra time at check in because of a computer problem but nothing bad. They do have a indoor pool and water slide and for kids I would assume quite nice. We would stay again if we were in the area and needed a place to bunk for the night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Barely OK to use as an overnighter. Sites are humped in the middle and that causes leveling problems. I would recommend R&R next door based on upkeep looks, shade, etc. However, I'd stay here again if I had to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was not "officially" open at the beginning of May. Meant showers and laundry were not open. Price reflects above. Was nice open park with recently leveled sites. Only a few 50 amp sites open. Few trash cans in park were full and trash was spilled by critters during the night. After telling the hotel receptionist the spilled trash was picked up but all trash cans were still full. Didn't use the water park($), cable worked well, wireless didn't work at all but we were parked as far away as possible from the hotel. Was quiet but would try the campground just up the hill-more shade trees. Would stay here in a pinch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Since we were here in November, there was no water or restrooms, but the 50 amp service was good and we stayed warm. We were just glad to find a park that was open. No complaints; it was what we needed at a fair price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK overnight park. It delivers what it claims to have - full hook-ups, good cable, and WIFI. Did not pay the extra $5 to use the indoor pool. Walked over to neighboring park, R&R, to see if it was any better. It appeared to have bigger sites, some with cement pads, and many with shade trees. It shares an outdoor pool with a motel. I would probably stay at R&R next time in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We did not stay but had reservations and pulled in. They gave us a 30-amp site and we thought we had reserved 50-amp. They did refund our money. The road is dirt and dusty. The sites are not wide and have dirt with a little gravel. There was no grass and no shade. They advertise a water park but it is with the motel and there is a fee charged. We went next door and things were great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros outweighed by cons at this place. We did not intend to camp here, but stopped to see the Corn Palace and were tired. This campground took Passport America, so we stayed. PROS: Fantastic joint setup with the Days Inn to provide good WiFi, an amazing indoor pool/water park, and great showers. The pool had a large hottub, a waterslide, a big pool and also a baby pool with a small slide. Our almost-2-year-old had a fantastic time on the little slide. CONS: The roads are in terrible shape. I thought we were going to roll the camper once when we hit a washed-out section on the way to our site. The red dirt makes it hard to judge the depth of the huge potholes. The trees are tiny. It was difficult to see the entrance, behind the Days Inn. I would stay here again, but I would drive MUCH slower on the camp roads. Like 1 mph. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 3 nights at this campground. It is relatively new, so all the facilities and utilities were in good shape. Sites and roads are gravel and were in good condition when we were there. There was a farm tractor with a grader blade attached parked near the office, so they are apparently paying more attention to the condition of the roads and sites. The campsites are long and level. The trees are small, so they offer no shade. WiFi worked well, but has the best signal in the sites near the office. Sites on the rows farthest from the office would likely have intermittent service. Indoor swimming pool and spa at adjoining Day's Inn is available for camping guests. The railroad track runs right beside the campground, but only one train came by during the three nights we were there. It was at midnight, and it did blow the horn loudly! Staff was very friendly. This campground is not South Dakota's best as their ads proclaim, but it is a good place to stay in a convenient location. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were on site #33. Good points. 1. Is big rig access. Some sites are 70 ft long. Didn't have to unhook our trailer from our truck. 2. Gets good clear cable TV and lots of channels. Bad points. 1. Suppose to have Wi-Fi. That is why we stayed here. It was hit and miss from our site. It was slower then dial up internet even at the office, where the antenna is. When the office is closed there is no outdoor shelter. Poor excuse for Wi-Fi. 2. Train tracks are less then 300 yards from our site. Closer for others. 3. Lots of road noise at 6 AM. 4. Erosion dips from July as posted, still have them in Sept. 4. $25 per night. To much money for this campground. Won't be back to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park for an overnight. The park is new so trees are small. Gravel sites mostly pull thru FHU with 50 and 30 amp plus cable TV. Park sits behind the Days Inn and office is in the back of the Hotel. Has an indoor water slide ($5.00 extra) and an indoor pool and hot tub (free). Both are shared by the campground and hotel guests. We did go swimming in the pool and it was nice, passed on the water slide. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK for overnight. We paid Passport America rate + tax = (13.50). Bills itself as South Dakota's best. That's a bit of a stretch. It's nice enough, sites were level, gravel and very long pull-throughs. Train tracks run behind but quietly with no whistle. Farther from Interstate than RR so quieter. Only one train went by. Gravel road to the office and then to the campsites has some erosion dips from rainstorms. Hasn't been leveled for awhile it appears. So watch the bump. Behind Days Inn Motel. Didn't use waterpark, they wanted $5 for a wristband. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fifteen dollar and you get full hookups, including cable? What a deal! OK, there are two downers. 1. The train behind the campground. 2. The nice camp host said, "For these prices, you can't have your Good Sam discount." Oh well. My computer detected a Wi-Fi, but it required a security key. I didn't bother to ask the nice camp host what it was. Verizon worked just fine. I think it was in "winter' mode. The office wasn't open, neither were the bathrooms. Self-registration only, checks are accepted. However, the laundry room was open. $1.50 to wash, $1.00 to dry. At these prices, FIND something to wash. I pulled in about 150 channels, but there were a lot of "duplicates" where you would get the old analog version (Channel X) and a digital version (Channel X.1 or X.2 or whatever....) You will get most of the favorites. All sites are pull-through. This campground is located behind the Super 8 Motel. Good for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate of $20/night average. We stayed 4 nights. Park is shady with large trees trimmed for easy access of big rigs. Sites and roads are gravel but level. Good grass areas for dog walks. Wi-Fi was iffy in most spots but worked fast and acceptable at the office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice overnight park. There were several long term campers in nice shady sites. They share the pool with the Super 8 motel next door. There are two sets of shower facilities. The one by the pool is older and small. The set by the office are larger, newer and cleaner. Wi-Fi does not reach the more distant sites; however, they said they are working on the problem. There is some road noise. Several nearby restaurants. Be sure to visit the Corn Palace which is in the center of town, with RV parking. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground located just off I-90, behind the Super 8 Motel. Being so close to the interstate you might expect some traffic noise but it was very quiet. There is a train track in the distance but we only heard one train and that was about 8:30 PM. The bathrooms are squeaky clean with fiberglass showers and the locker room mats so that when you step out of the shower you aren't standing in a puddle of water. The Internet apparently works only when you come down close to the office. We were told it wasn't working at the sites. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is Passport America and good for 18 days. Easy access off I-90, Good interior gravel roads, level sites, gravel and grass. Utilities worked. Satellite came in from roof but could be a challenge in some sites, depending on tree location. pull-through sites have plenty of room for 40' with slides and tow vehicle. Picnic table. Good Verizon service. Laundry facilities. Office help is very friendly. Great location for restaurants, corn palace and shopping. Room to walk dog. Easy gas/diesel access on same road. Have stayed here many times and will again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 2 nights but most just stay one night - might be wise to make a reservation. Very convenient to interstate access but I wasn't bothered by traffic noise at night. Mostly pull thru sites that are level. Some tent sites available as well. Railroad tracks right next to campground but no trains went through - one was parked on the tracks for one night. Corn Palace just a short drive away and a nice way to spend an hour or two. The rate reflects Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been here numerous times in the past and have always enjoyed our stay. We were here one night the second week of July and had a FHU site. We were able to get the Wi-Fi network in the RV only because we were close enough to the office. Their cable TV provider has changed their system to one of those HD systems that require a very new TV or a converter box to get all the listed channels. I don't have the physical agility or knowledge to access the back of my TV to hook up a converted box. So, we were only able to get about 15 of 60 cable channels. This situation lowers my rating from previous years. The bathrooms are old and small. This is still a nice park but not as good as it was. The rate shown is PPA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This rate reflects Passport America discount. This is an okay campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. After the rain it was very muddy. It was very noisy from the interstate. The railroad tracks are right behind the campground but were not running while we were there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for the overnight crowd. Gravel roads & generally level gravel sites. Big rig suitable. Good bargain with Passport America. Park wifi didn't work. Free cable TV, outdoor pool & playground plus they give you 2 bottles of water at check in. Both ATT & Verizon had good signals. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a gem. Just a overnight stop for us. Just off the highway, and road noise wasn't a concern. Close to restaurants, and other local business. Gave us a chance to visit the Corn Palace. Will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate quoted is Passport America. Presently surprised with this campground. The grounds are neat and clean, gravel roads with grass dividers between sites. Trees at almost every site. The laundry is clean ($1.50 wash/$1.00 dry). Restrooms and showers are very clean, even providing a hair dryer in the ladies room! The pool happened to be closed due to a storm but was nice and told it was heated. Cute playground for the kids and large dog walk area. There are train tracks but didn't see or hear a train. Very close to Interstate 90, easy off and on. Also with 1/4 mile of Walmart, restaurants and a Cabela sport store. Staff was very nice and informative. Would definitely stop here and recommend it to friends. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is located behind a Super 8 hotel, right off the interstate. The staff was wonderful. And, the park was completely sold out for the night we stayed there. The laundry room was spotless and the restrooms were among the cleanest I've ever seen. There is limited shade. The roadways to the sites are not paved and the sites are gravel with nice grass area. Some of the sites are not very level, but we had no problems with ours. There is no privacy from site to site, and, being located right of the Interstate, there was traffic noise. Given the cleanliness of the entire property and the friendliness of the staff, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great stopover spot. Gravel sites but they are level and the utilities are well placed. Long sites with a decent space between rigs. Grass kept the pups happy. Very close to I90 made it convenient off and on but also provided a fair amount of road noise. Also train tracks very close on the other side of the campground. These noises didn't bother us but anyone with a soft sided rig might not agree. Close to corn palace and prehistoric Indian dig. Not much for children to do here but fine for us. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here overnight with the PA rate pd $22.79 2/discount and tax. Nice, clean, long pull through, grass, friendly staff, quiet park, no road noise. It's far enough back behind super 8. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Though convenient to the highway, this park was not particularly noisy. It was level and smooth with grass and trees around the sites. Electrical, water, and sewer hookups were convenient. Bathrooms were clean and modern. This park was a good value with our Passport America discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, level campground with easy access to Mitchell, The Corn Palace, and the interstate. Surprisingly quiet. The CG Host/operator was terrific. Friendly, helpful staff all around. Decent grassed space between sites. All the sites were pull-thrus. Convenient to Walmart and other shopping. A real nice place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The host is friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi is OK, kind of slow. The laundry room is really clean and well maintained. The campground is actually called R & R Campground and it is adjacent to Super 8 Motel and campers have access to use the outdoor pool. The campground is next to railroad track, but the trains only come during the day so it is a non issue with us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America ($17.00 + $4 add for 50amp service). Very nice park with lots of shade trees. Well picked up and clean. WiFi service was a little slow, till we connected our WiFi Extender, then it was just fine. We enjoyed our time here very much and would highly recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This has been our preferred Mitchell area RV park for years. We stayed here on a Saturday night in mid-July. Rate listed is PPA. We called a few days earlier to reserve a site and were glad we did; they were turning people away by 4PM. You should probably call ahead anytime during the summer since this is a small, but popular park that fills up regularly. There are also a number of extended stay customers so the number of sites available on any given night could be minimal. We had a FHU, pull-through site with 70 channel cable TV. We were unable to connect to the WIFI because we were in a site that is one of the farthest from the office. The pool was refreshing on a hot, humid day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground a short distance from I-90 with minimal road noise. Wi-Fi was fair--not so good as the campground filled each day. We got a good Verizon signal. Stayed here a week on Passport America rate in a pull through with a picnic table. We have stayed here before, and will always stop here when going by Mitchell, SD. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly nice, small park just off I-90. The freeway noise is not bothersome. There is a train track as well but it is not used often. We heard two trains in our two day stay. Sites are level with some grass and a picnic table. Pull thrus were easy to access and there were a lot of large rigs that came in and out while we were visiting. There is a swimming pool which appeared popular. Staff was very friendly. Good place for a short stay, we would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very pleasant stop for over night. We were greeted with ice-cold bottles of water, what a special touch. We would stop there again. Convenient to I-90. Well kept grounds and clean. Lovely trees for shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is just off I-90 behind a Super 8 Motel. It has long gravel pads that were fairly level with lots of shade. Pool was very nice, as was the laundry which stayed open 24 hrs. Easy in/out with dump and trash near the exit. Would definitely stay here again. This rate was a Passport American rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground has gravel sites that are nice long pull throughs. It's right off I-90, but we didn't notice highway noise too bad. It's perfectly fine as a "stop over" place for a few days for sight-seeing Mitchell's Corn Palace and other attractions. We stayed here 3 nights. The woman working the office lives on site in a 5th wheel and is VERY pleasant and accommodating. We would stay here again. The rate includes tax and reflects the Passport America discount, 50 amp service and cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
R&R Campground is a strictly a one-nighter park located within an easy 9-iron to Interstate 90 so you will hear the highway. It is immediately behind the Super 8 Motel. They may be a Passport America park but it was the most expensive PA park we have ever been in. They charge an extra $4.00 if you want 50 amp. They appear to have mostly dirt or gravel sites and because of the recent rains we had to use support plates under our levelers. Their free Wi-Fi wouldn’t work at our site. We didn’t try their cable as we have a satellite dish but we had to pull forward to the far front of our site to clear their overhanging tree branches and then couldn't connect to their sewer. Their office staff was friendly and helpful but the park was just a mediocre affair with too few showers/restrooms for their size. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 nights as others have said, to see the corn palace. Sites are gravel as well interior roads. Kind of a strange entrance through the Super 8 motel but plenty of room to get through. It was the off season so there were only 5 other rigs in the park. Plenty of room for our 40' motorhome and toad. A little close to I-90 but for $15.00 per night including tax with 50 amps and full hookups you can't beat it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America member park that offered the discount for up to one week made this an enticing prospect. Following their directions it was easy to find. Office was closed at our 4:00 pm arrival but a note told us to pick a spot and pay later in the evening. Lots of shade and gravel sites lent to the feeling this park had been around a long while. Situated and owned by the same people that own the Super 8 hotel, traffic noise was minimal. The hosts were friendly. And the laundry room stayed open 24 hours making it easy to access one of the 4 washers available. A television in the laundry room made the chore more bearable as well. Plenty of grass between sites and room to enjoy sitting outdoors was appreciated. Train tracks running alongside could have been problematic however only one train per evening went by to my knowledge. The only real negative was access to and from was through the Super 8 parking lot along with a convenience store (watch for that convenience store cross traffic). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had one of the two concrete pad pull-throughs and couldn't have been happier. We lost a jack and are on our way to Winnebago Industries in Iowa for repairs, and we are unable to level our coach, so having the level pad was wonderful. Large trees provided shade but did not interfere with the slides. There is a pool which appeared clean and well-maintained. Cable TV in this park was one of the best we have had, with brilliant color and no fuzziness. The Wi-Fi was weak, but our RAZR hotspot worked well. Water pressure decreased during peak usage times. Although the sites are a little close, the roads were easily maneuvered by big rigs. The park is beside RonDees and we are so happy we stayed here. The lady in the office was very nice and helpful. It was going to be an overnight stop, but we stayed an extra day. Price reflects Passport America plus $4 extra for 50 amp service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. There is some space between sites, but it seemed pretty crowded. It's convenient to the Corn Palace which is the only reason we stopped here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a our first time here in 4 years, and we stayed 3 nights the final weekend of August. Rate is PPA for all 3 nights. We had a FHU, pull-through, end site at the south end of the park. Cable TV is about 70 channels which is good since only a few sites are satellite friendly due to the many mature trees in the park. I was afraid we might have trouble picking up the WI-FI but it worked OK most of the time. The park was full both Fri. and Sat. and only about 10 sites were vacant Sunday night. It stays this full because they have about a dozen sites occupied by men working road construction in the area. The pool is shared with the neighboring motel, so there were quite a few kids the 2 warm days of our stay. This will continue to be my preferred RV park in the Mitchell area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America membership. Easy on/off the interstate. Follow directions on website or the PPA book, entering the address in a GPS will take you to a different park nearby. Good gravel roads and pull through, level sites. There is grass between sites with picnic tables and room to sit out. If you have a roof top satellite, be sure to ask for a site with a clear sky. The trees are getting big enough to offer shade. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, small, well shaded campground. Lots of channels on the cable. Good Verizon signal. The furthest in sites are close to the freeway and when we were there they were doing construction work with jack hammers. Inside the RV with the air conditioning on we heard nothing, but just be aware of potential noise if you prefer fresh air. Would stay her again. Rate reflects Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an above average kind of park that you find right off the interstate. If you are here during the time of year that your windows would be open, you would hear the traffic, but it was no problem for us. The rate is for the Passport rate, including $4 extra for 50amp. Good gravel roads and pull through, level sites. There is grass between sites with picnic tables and room to sit out. The Wi-Fi worked well during the day, slower at night of course. The free cable had a very good station choice. Our Sprint phone/Hot spot worked well. The area to walk our dogs was a little limited by the "do not walk here" signs. If you have a roof top satellite, be sure to ask for a site with a clear sky, the trees are getting big enough to offer shade. Very good location for shopping and visiting the area attractions. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was pleasantly surprised at this Passport America campground. Very easy site access and hookups with 50 amp service. Great overnight spot in the heat for only $22 PA rate. Much better value than other sites along I-90. Will stop again if schedule amiable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here as a quick overnight, as we were on our way out West. Would not stay here for any more than one night, quick in and out. Sites were a bit tight, and ours was a pull through. This is directly behind the Super 8, and they share the pool, which is small. No store to speak of, and its right off of the highway. Would stay again strictly on our way through only. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great 1-2 night stay campground, easy on/off I 90 and close to Mitchell shopping and tourist stops. Our rate includes Passport America discount w/50 amp. Our site was a long, level pull thru, with all utilities in excellent working order. The staff was welcoming and helpful. There is a pool and small playground. We did not use the showers, so can't comment on those. laundry open 24 hrs. The wifi was free and we had a good signal. Good Verizon, clear sky for roof sat dish. There are several campgrounds in the area, we were very satisfied with our choice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park located behind the Super 8 one block north of interstate highway. Received a warm friendly greeting. Check in was quick and easy. Received info for touring in the area. Park is neat and clean, but site may need some work to level it side to side. Hook ups were in good shape, water pressure was strong, and cable TV worked very well. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park has easy access off I-90. Upon arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff and given a free bottle of water as we checked in. Park was very clean and great place for an overnight or a couple days to sight see in Mitchell. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is easy to access of interstate 90. The sites are large and can accommodate big rigs. The sites are level and the electricty and water pressure is good. They offer free coffee after 8 AM. There is an excellent family cafe across the street from the campground. The campground is behind the Super 8 Motel. The lady at the desk was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The water pressure is good and the electric has both 30 and 50 amps and was in the red on the amp meter all the time. The price reflects Passport America's discount. This is a great park to overnight or even stay a few days to explore Mitchell SD. I would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for PA. Very nice workers. The camp is quite clean and well tended. Clean laundry. Sparkling pool although we did not use it. Nice tables at each site. Shade trees do not interfere with slides. Pull through sites could be a wee bit longer. Not a lot of senseless rules like many campgrounds. Easy on and off to I-90, but no noise noticed. There is a train that passes by a few times a day but we did not find it a nuisance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground for mid-state stopping point. Sites are adequate for 40' towing, some concrete and all level. Friendly staff and nicely maintained park. Plenty of retail in short distance of this location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America charge. Easy access to I-90. Very friendly and helpful staff. Park had just opened for the season and was very well maintained. The train that passed by during the evening was traveling very slowly and didn't disturb us at all. Also, the noise from the Hwy was minimal. Very good experience. Will be happy to stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This time of year campground is for self contained units only. Restrooms/showers are not open. Park very clean, picnic tables well built and fairly new. Large pull-through sites. Full hook-ups plus cable TV (lots of channels) and great Wi-Fi. Great place for overnight--or longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very good overnight stop. Easy freeway access. The price can't be beat. It was a $15 flat rate as it was after their normal closing date and they were using an unattended self-check in system. Their normal PA rate was also $15. The sites were easy gravel pull-through with good hookups. They even included cable TV in the discounted rate. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed two days. Staff very friendly and helpful. Level shaded pads. Some reviews talked about freeway noise and plane noise. Never heard a plane and barely heard traffic. Would stay again We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park and convenient for an over night stay. Small park but clean sites. Shaded spots good utilities with cable. Free Wi-Fi but weak signal. Good Verizon signal. Friendly staff. Park is located behind motel and close to freeway. Freeway noise is not too loud. Would stay here again while traveling I-90. Rate reflects passport America cost. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little park right near the interstate. We had one of the spaces close to I-90, but with our windows closed, the noise was not a problem. We have a large dog and had no problem at all with the park rules concerning dogs. The Wi-Fi was fair and at times unusable. The sites are a little tight. The water, electric, and sewer were all fine. The park is convenient to the town of Mitchell. We would stay there again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The R & R Campground stands for "rest and relaxation" for us. We are staying here as a respite following the Escapade in Gillette, WY. The price reflects the use of our Passport America membership. Although the park is small, the sites are well shaded and the utilities are convenient. We are in the "pet friendly" section which is well enforced. The Wi-Fi is free but is so weak as to be unusable. Fortunately, our Sprint cards work here. . . hooray! The management is friendly. The rules are well stated and enforced; this is a good thing. The park is conveniently near the freeway but the noise didn't bother us. All in all. . . a nice and convenient little park. We would happily stay here again. Thank you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We would actually rate this park an 8 if we did not have a dog. First the positives, friendly folks, nice, clean, convenient campground. Excellent value on the PA rate. My wife found the laundry facilities to be especially clean and pleasant. Non dog owners need read no further and consider this an 8. Now the negatives, dogs are only allowed in one area of the park. The sole dumpster is at the other end of the park where dogs are not allowed. As we always clean up after our dog (and it is a rule of the campground as well), this is of some inconvenience. Basically you must bring your dog back to the RV before hiking to the dumpster to dispose of the waste. I would suggest either allowing dogs to walk to the dumpster area, or simply placing an additional trash can in the dog run. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Passport America membership with 50 amp service ($2 extra/night). Park was pretty full with many Escapees going to the Escapade in Gillette, WY. All utilities were adequate. Wi-Fi and Verizon were very good here. Check out the Monday evening hamburger special on Monday evenings at Marlin's across the street. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
General impression is a decent place for an overnight stay. Was clean and picked up. Dirt roads and gravel, nearly level sites with some trees and grass. Free Wi-Fi worked really well as did Verizon card and ATT. Grandaughters said the showers associated with the pool were very buggy and had wasp nests. The restroom and showers associated with the office was dated but clean. Only one receptacle for trash as you left. Would stay again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The other reviewers hit it on the nose. Shady, quiet, roomy enough, level, clean, and friendly staff. Rate reflects Passport America discount. Pull through was long enough for our 36' M/H and toad -- did not have to unhook. I think a great find! We camped here in a Motorhome.
R & R is an excellent overnight campground while traveling. Quiet even though it is close to the highway. Friendly helpful staff. Visit the Corn Palace while in the area too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects PPA discount. Lady at counter was very nice and helpful. All pull-through sites and shady. Cable TV had limited channels, internet was fine and we were at the back of the lot. Water and electric were fine. There is a small store, and a nice clean laundry. Very accessible to Wal-Mart, Cabelas, and a Whiskey Creek restaurant. Right next to I-90, but surprisingly, not that noisy. A train track right behind the grounds, but only one train ran late afternoon and it did not blow a horn. Great for a night or two, not much more. I would stay again if in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this campground very much. It was a little confusing getting into the first time. Nice long level pull throughs, very strong Wi-Fi. Even though you could see the highway, we did not get any noise. Our rate was a Good Sam discount. We stayed here twice on our way out and on our way back from the Black Hills. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean Passport America campground. We stayed an extra night. There are nice people and it is very friendly. The sites are wooded and level. There is 50 AMP power. There is a Pool. It is located close to Expressway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rates reflect being affiliated with Passport America. Mostly pull-through sites, very long and wide enough for numerous slides. We were in a smaller, back-in site and perfectly happy with it. Has two unisex showers and restrooms near the pool which were clean but need some renovating. Although close to I-90, the noise didn't bother us. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground. It is just off the interstate but the noise didn't bother our sleeping at all. We saw only one train on the tracks next to the campground and it did not blow it's horn when going by the park. The sites are wide enough to get good separation but not if you were going to stay for the summer. Our rate was low because the office and facilities were not open yet, they were just getting the park ready for the season. We stayed five days visiting family in the area. It is a Passport America and Good Sam park. We will stay there again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here in the "off season" before the pool and bathhouse opened up, $15 per night. This is a very nice campground, quiet, secure, close to food and fuel. Long pull thrus, easy hook ups, well layer out campground. Easy access to and from I-90. Great overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a very good overnight park because it was close to the freeway and has convenient access but the noise was not a problem. It is a very pleasant park, but we couldn't get the cable hookup to work and the showers didn't get very hot. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very comfortable park for an overnight stay. Within walking distance to many restaurants and only 2 blocks to a garage that services RVs We e know because we discovered a flat tire as we were getting ready to leave, and the office was very helpful in helping us get it fixed. The Wi-Fi was good. They stayed open beyond their usual dates because the weather was so good, and they were full. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with easy access off I-90. Long level sites. We stayed here with Passport America, thus the rate. The lady in the office was VERY nice and welcoming. We have stayed here before when passing through and would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground. We were stuck in Mitchell for two weeks and there couldn't have been a better place for us to stay -- with Passport America rates throughout stay. Almost all roomy pull-thrus with lots of grass. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Convenient to everything. Don't stop with the Corn Palace; the Primitive Village and Discovery Museum are also must-sees. Huge Cabellas (national sales leader) and Wal-Mart within half a mile. Good restaurants. Pet walking a little awkward; signs all over say no pets here. Wi-Fi shaky; blows you off a lot. We would definitely go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Long, level sites. Excellent Wi-Fi reception. Friendly staff. Very nice, reasonable priced laundry. Convenient to town and Wal-Mart. Highway noise and the occasional train no problem with windows closed. We were very pleased with this campground and would recommend it if you stay a night or a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America campground rate shown. Clean park. Pull through parking. Pool closes after Labor Day. Noticeable freeway noise. Excellent park for overnight stay while traveling I-90. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes it's small but very clean and convenient. I was worried when we pulled up, it's behind a Super 8 (probably owned by the same folks) but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was dirty but we were told that a storm came through the night before and it just hadn't gotten cleaned yet. From the look of everything else I believed them. The showers were very clean. I will definitely stay here again if traveling through Mitchell. I did read a few complaints about noise but we didn't hear anything. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Make sure you look to the right as soon as you exit coming west on I-90. You will go right past it; it's tough to see from the street. Just happened to see the R&R. We got a great site and had a nice time here. The smell of cattle is in the air EVERYWHERE in Mitchell, reminded me of growing up in Lancaster County. Hosts were great. Excellent choice for a campground to visit the Corn Palace and to spend the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't let strange entry thru part of motel lot fool you, this is a very nice small park for over night or even several days. Roads are good with nicely graveled sites and all are pull-thru. Vicious storm passed that night, and the park attendant knocked on our coach to make sure we had the local channel on to stay updated. She wanted to make sure we knew where the safe areas were in case of severe weather. Very considerate. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were looking for a decent overnight spot with easy access for our 40 footer, level site, good power and WiFi. We found it all and then some, so we decided to spend two extra nights. This park is well cared for and surprisingly quiet, being so close to the highway. Mitchell had everything we needed to stock up. And, we loved the Corn Palace! We highly recommend this park, and hope there’s room the next time we pass through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park with wonderful, friendly people at check in. Sites are large and easy to get in and out, pads are level, and the park is clean. You can drive to all the major attractions with little or no trouble and we enjoyed Mitchell very much. The rate is great, and I gave this park a 9 only due to the closeness of the off ramp from I-90 and train tracks behind the park. Try it, you will love this place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park continues to be our prefered park in eastern SD along I-90. For the low PPA rate of $17 you get FHU, cable TV, WiFi, and a pool. Add in the convenience to shopping and town and it is still acceptable at the full rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bathrooms, showers, and laundry room clean and modern. Sites are nicely shaded without being intrusive. Reasonable width, length, and level. We had a problem finding the campground. It is directly behind the Super 8 just off I-90, across from Pilot Travel Center. It really isn't on a street. No road noise, other than the occasional siren. There is a train track nearby, but not many trains to speak of. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although not fancy, this is a nice, friendly, shady, clean park. We enjoyed the Passport rate, and I have paid much more for a site that wasn't half as nice. I would certainly return. There is a wonderful Chinese restaurant across the street too! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has excellent TV and WiFi. We heard no freeway noise, the train only came through once and that was in the afternoon. We will stay here again when going through Mitchell. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is clean and well maintained. Grass is mowed and someone seems to be constantly improving things. Sites are not on top of each other and are level. Major cable TV service and good WiFi. The WiFi became weak while we were here and the next day they had a repairman checking the system. $15 fee was Passport America rate. The only down side was the interstate, and even that was far enough away to not be a bother. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used the Passport rate. Friendly staff welcomed us and we appreciated the level, pull-through site. Things were in good repair, even though there had been considerable rain in the prior weeks. Convenient location to I-90, the Corn Palace in Mitchell and Cabelas sporting goods. We heard some road noise from the Interstate, but it was not a problem for us. We will stop here again when in the Mitchell area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just did a one night stay and it was fine for that. Has friendly staff, clean area, and we had great neighbors. Has gravel sites that were level, and cable TV that worked fine. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for two nights to visit the Corn Palace. We had a pleasant experience. The Corn Palace was within biking distance, about 15 minutes away. It was an easy ride. The location is perfect if you are there to visit the Palace. We found nice restaurants. The front desk personnel were very friendly and willing to assist us with questions. Had absolutely no problems with our pets. The cable and Wi-Fi were great. We'd definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All services were good and the people friendly. There is a railroad spur right beside the park, but it's in a deep valley and used very little. Near the interstate, but the noise was not bad. Was convenient for touring in the area. The laundry room was larger that most campgrounds, and reasonable. I used Passport America for the $15.00 per night for 4 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our rate is a PA rate. The park is not really pet friendly. We were told to be careful of the children in the park, but not warned about the 2 pit bulls that were tied out near the dog walking area. The dog walking area was the only area where we were allowed to take our dogs. The park is clean, but very noisy with highway noise. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here with Passport America for two nights. We were with a group of motorhomes traveling together, and the staff was so accommodating with our reservations. They even put up a welcoming sign for our group. The campground is located behind a gas station and is nothing fancy, but the sites are long pull-throughs with easy access on and off the interstate. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great small RV park. There were a few tents, but mainly RVs. Our rate was 29.30 with the Good Sam discount. We didn't have a TV cable with us, so the gentleman in the office made a special trip to the store to get one for us! We used this cable at no charge and returned it in the morning. Very clean showers/bathrooms. Near a train track, but never heard a train go by. The pool is heated, and is shared with Motel 8 guests. Picnic table, but no fire ring. Pull through site was fairly roomy. We used Verizon air card for wireless connection. Call ahead, the park filled up the night we were there, and they were turning campers away. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel pads with 50/30/20 amps, well kept sites with cable TV. The Wi-Fi worked fine. The noise level was not bad at all, considering the park is next to the highway and a railroad. Staff was friendly and helpful. They accepted Passport America. This was a nice place to stay for a couple days and see the area. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in 45 foot motor home in site #312. There is easy access north off I-90, Exit 332. There are mostly gravel interior roads mixed with some paved. Most sites are gravel but a few are concrete. There is grass and trees at each site. There is a decent space between each site which were mostly pull-throughs. The WiFi worked great. We were able to receive satellite TV and Verizon phone & air card had top signal. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were all neat and clean. The park accepted Passport America or Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. This park represents why Passport America membership is a good deal. We had a level, all concrete site with 50amp hookups, grass, shade, and plenty of room. Although near the interstate, it was quiet and dark at night. Lots of pipeline workers and their children, but the pool kept them busy and they weren't a problem. Good free Wi-Fi and cable TV. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly helpful staff. Gravel pull through sites with 50 amp available. Plenty of grass. Cable TV. Wi-Fi was very slow but Verizon Aircard signal was strong and fast. Shade trees on all site. Rate reflects Passport America plus $2 for 50 amp. Park was full on a Sunday night. We would stay again when in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground behind Super 8 Motel. All pull-thru sites (except tent sites). Guest can use hotel pool. Showers by pool were like warm and not very clean. Restrooms & showers by office much better. Campground between interstate and railroad, but very quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good basecamp for visiting Mitchell. You basically have two choices: closer to the Corn Palace or closer to the interstate. We chose the latter. All sites are pull-thru, but a bit narrow. Wifi was good and having cable TV to check the weather was appreciated. No campfires. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice over night stop in Mitchell. Located behind a Super 8 motel the park is nice and level. Entry roads are paved as was our site. Easy on and easy off I-90, but not too loud. But that could have been because we had terrible thunder storms-- by the way drainage is good. Had good WiFi and cell reception. Not too far from Corn Palace. Rest rooms were clean, but a bit on the old side. PPA rate included 50 amp service and cable TV. Would stay again if passing through We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full rate with tax is $32.40 for 30 amp FHU, but Passport America is half price, and a good deal. Big thing to do in Mitchell is see the Corn Palace, rah rah. This is a fairly good spot to rest up a couple days, do laundry, soak in the pool. Be sure to get a level, shady pull thru site if possible. Ours was none of the above and the rig was very hot sitting out in the 95 degree full sun. Staff was always friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little campground. Grassy with level gravel sites, some were concrete. Lots of trees, free wifi & cable. Very close to interstate but not noisy. Great swimming pool, shares with motel. Very nice for overnight or a couple of days stay. Staff not very friendly on check-in. We would stay here again. Great for Passport America rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great little park. Perfect for a couple of overnights while traveling through. It's clean and quiet with wide grassy sites. The laundry was clean and tidy and the WiFi works great. There are no amenities so this isn't the place to hang out with kids but for a short stay to visit the Corn Palace, I give it a very high rating and we definitely would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed her for 2 nights at the end of our 10 week trip. Rate is PPA. The park has full hook-ups, 70 channel cable, WIFI, and shares a pool with a motel. Unfortunately it was a tad too cool to use the pool - the water felt warm enough but the air temp was only around 70F. The sites are a mix - pull-thrus, back-ins, gravel pads, some cement pads. Sites are well laid out and there seem to be numerous sites that will handle big rigs. A number of site have some shade from mature trees. Just off I-90 which will bother some folks. Super WalMart and Cabellas are a 10-15 minute walk but you will need a vehicle to get to downtown Mitchell. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My husband and I actually stayed here for 1 week to get the better price. It was a nice area. They had a nice pool outside that they share with Motel 8 which they also own. Wifi and cable were good. The people working there were very pleasant and helpful. The corn palace area was pretty quiet to our surprise. We enjoyed the walk there which was about 2 1/2 miles each way. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A GREAT campsite for the money ! Clean, with all the amenities. Good Wi-Fi, cable, and electric. A great deal @ $16 (Passport rate). We stayed 2 extra nights. A friendly and professional staff. This park is one of the most pleasant experiences of 6 years of full-timing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a lot nicer than I expected it to be. Although getting in and out with a big rig was a little tricky, we had no problem. It's a Passport America park and the PA website directions say to turn in by the BP station, but it's a Mobil station now. The park itself is very clean and well kept. Some sites are gravel, but we were on a concrete pad. The sites are somewhat close together, but we've been in parks that were a lot worse. The pool is shared with the Super 8 motel right next to the park. We stayed here 2 nights. It's definitely one of the nicer short-term parks we've been to, especially for Passport America. Even though it's right off interstate 90, the noise is not bad. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Found park based on reviews I read on this website. Great park, small, convenient to I-90, long level pull thrus, hook-up facilities excellent,Free WiFi and extended channel TV cable also!! Super value, great customer service - perfect for an overnight or extended stay! Highly recommended! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$18 rate is Passport America w/$2 additional charge for 50a, internal roads and most sites gravel but in good repair. Nice long pull-through sites apx 70'. Easy access off I-90 but be noticed little highway noise, railroad track right behind campground but we heard no trains. Campground Wi-Fi had strong signal but I could not get an internet connection (local only), however the neighboring Super 8 Motel Wi-Fi worked great. Close to Cabella, Wal-Mart & numerous restaurants. We stayed for just one night, and would definitely stay again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is right behind the Super8 Motel but very neat and clean. Has Wi-Fi, worked OK for the evening. We stayed both heading to and from the Black Hills and it was very convenient to drive into and off the freeway (exit 332). It has a nice laundry room, outdoor pool, and bathrooms that are very neat and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, we would stay there again definitely. Although a RR track runs right behind the campground it didn't bother us at all, the trains came just before bedtime and then again early morning, they didn't seem to be noisy other than click-click-click. Located close to gas stations, a Wal-Mart, KFC, restaurants and other stores. Be sure to visit the Corn Palace and Historic Downtown, it is interesting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The amount we paid includes Passport America discount. All of the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The park was well-maintained. The laundry room and bathrooms were very clean and the laundry table was a good height for folding. The commons area was very comfortable and has a library with comfortable chairs and tables. The handicapped bathroom could have used a wooden door instead of a shower curtain for the dressing area. There are trains that come through in the evening, but we have learned to deal with this as many campgrounds have this same issue--they pass quickly. The campground is very close to a Wal-Mart, many restaurants, and shopping. It is behind the motel, which is also well-maintained. The Wi-Fi worked well. We look forward to returning to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Passport America Park. Very nice helpful management. Behind the Super8 Motel. Easy on and off highway but did not notice any noise. There is an earth berm which I think absorbs the noise. Be sure and visit The Corn Palace and the Historic Downtown Area. Good shopping in the area and fuel stops as well. If we are ever in the area we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight stop along I-90. Staff was friendly and helpful. WiFi was sketchy from both RV park and nearby Super 8. Pool and playground shared with Super 8. Some interstate and train noise at sites closer to I-90. Stores and restaurants nearby stores - Wal-Mart, Cabela's, etc. Large, level pull-throughs with grassy lots and trees. Passport America park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Restrooms & Showers were fine. Our site was level, well shaded average size. Most of the sites had some shade and looked level. We actually got to picked it. Site and road were gravel and well maintained. Internet was good the first few days and the went to pot so we switched to our own. It is just off of I-90 but we didn't notice any noise. Good park well maintained, we'd stay again. Stayed for a week. Camp host and people in office very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, neat, clean RV park with plenty of room and easy ingress and egress for big rigs. Good wi-fi although it came from the adjacent Super 8 motel. Very friendly and helpful management. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is located 75 yards behind a Super * motel, and shares access to a large swimming pool with the motel's guests. Many of the sites are pull-throughs, and at least partially shaded. The staff was helpful. This is a nice overnight stop. We paid the Passport America rate, which included local taxes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Used Passport America for $16 with 50 amp. Easy on and off, big sites with lots of room. Small trees give some shade. Pool was nice. Located behind Super 8 Motel. WiFi worked good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great overnight park! A Passport America participant that is right off the interstate and has a little bit of highway noise, but it was not paricularly loud or intrusive. They just upgraded their Wi-Fi with another antenna, so Wi-Fi is now campground-wide inside your coach. The pull through sites were level and sufficiently long for our 41' coach and toad. Access was easy and the interior roads are in good shape, providing Big Rig access. There are many shade trees in park and a dog walk is provided. Campground is behind the Super 8 Motel and campground visitors can use pool if desired. Restaurant within easy walking distance of campground. Campground managers very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely return again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Host were very friendly good location very clean showers, didn't use pool which is shared with Super 8 Motel they took Passport $14.04 no limit on stay, Corn Palace a nice attraction in town also drive around Lake Mitchell if you can. Walmart and other stores close. Cable TV lots of channels is included, WIFI in office tables and chairs there, got on internet at my site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was ok. The best thing going for it is the location. It is right off the exit and close to many places to eat, cabela's, and walmart. A little too close to the highway for me. Mosquitoes are very bad at sundown. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is clean, nice, and close to I-90. Park has a lot of nice trees and green lawns. Some road noise off I-90. All roads and sites are gravel. We would return in the future. Hi-speed internet in office only - no WiFi. Plan a trip to see the coan palace in Mitchell. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Close to the interstate - train tracks in back but no train went through when we were there. Nice level,
grassy sites. We camped here in a camper.
