If you are looking for a nice peaceful place to stay, this is a great location. Hot showers, wifi, pets friendly, and a great little kids playground too! There is space for RV’s, a couple of cabins and nice smooth grass for tents!
Being tired travelers on the road for over a month it was a welcomed relief to find this spot to spend a few days out in the middle of farm land. The family running the park has done a lovely job of adding more sites, improving the existing sites and adding landscaping with an abundance of trees. flowers and sitting areas, The view is forever with green grass fields. Close to HWY 90 makes for easy access, I called ahead to get driving instructions and was treated by staff as if we were old friends. I've watched children have a good time at the playground and our dog has really enjoyed the beautiful grassy fields available to him There is a nice casual restaurant within walking distance where we had their fried chicken which was some of the best we've ever had. Not much else to do in town but we did drive to the state capital in Piierre about an hour away and that was worthwhile to see. We travel in a 41 foot RV and a tow car and had a spacious pull thru site including trash receptacle at each site, The wifi is excellent. The bathroom is one of the best for cleanliness and for a great shower. This is a good stop over on the way to/from the Black Hills of Dakota/Mt Rushmore, We would stay here longer the next time, a wonderful spot to recharge. The owners show a commitment to having happy campers.
Small, older campground under new ownership. New owner working very hard to bring campground up to what he wants it to be. Office entrance surrounded by gardens and very welcoming. Sites need some work but are acceptable. Pull-through, side-by-side hookups. Roads dirt and fine gravel. Restrooms very clean and well-stocked. “C-Store” just up the hill for necessities. Would return.
After outrunning a storm, in a part of the country we'd never been before, it was great to have the owner/manager tell us she had a spot for us for the night...on a weekend even! Our early evening arrival let us see the golden light fill this well-kept park after a "deluge" had occurred a couple hours earlier. There were small puddles here and there, but the drainage was good and our pull through site was level and had good access to office building,...no mud or issues. We also had easy access to the immaculate bathrooms/showers, and playground. The signage is thoughtful and appropriate. The various planters of blooming plants were also welcoming and added a nice touch of home! The military discount was appreciated!
Owner/manager has created a bit of a western museum in the office and I was distracted (in a good way) by the interesting artifacts when checking in.
It was fun to watch our neighbors and their kids out walking the perimeter of the park and getting maximal benefit from the playground as the sun was setting.
Additionally, the wifi worked great and allowed us to catch up a bit on correspondence. Although we did not use the laundry facilities, that is also a bonus for anyone who has been on the road a spell.
We will go out of our way in the future to stay at New Frontier Campground and RV Park again! Nice find!
This is no place for a Class A Motorhome. Gravel washed out roads that have big ravines, hard to find at night, light on sign was so small that you couldn't see it. DEFINITELY NOT GPS FRIENDLY. NO SIGN OF HOSTS AFTER PULLING IN. SHOULD BE SOMEONE THERE TO HELP YOU OUT IN THE EVENING. NO SIGNAGE AS TO WHERE TO EXIT.
