Easy park to get to off the Interstate. We were heading north and needed a place to stay the night. Park fee required to enter not included in overnight fee. Sites didn't have water or sewer hook up but there is a water fill up next to the dump station at the entrance to the park that was easily accessible. Roads were wide and easy to navigate. It was quiet and very clean. Large restroom/shower facilities. Back in spots. We drive a Class A Motorhome, towing motorcycle.

Easy to get to from the interstate, but has the feel of "country quiet" even though in the city. Large campsites and level. Good road in park. Showers were clean. Convenient to town (Sioux Falls). On the river with some hiking trails. Good for overnight stop.
