What a fiasco!! I made a reservation in Jan. to stay 5 nights at this campground in June however, our plans changed and I called on Apr. 27 to change the reservations to stay on two separate occasions later in June. Unfortunately, the person I talked to was not able to make the change (and did not tell me that) and the message was not passed on to someone who had that ability. When we arrived On June 10, they could not find our reservation and were told that the campground was full. The campground... Read More

When we arrived On June 10, they could not find our reservation and were told that the campground was full. The campground manager finally found the initial reservation and when I produced my documentation for the change, she became quite defensive and rearranged some sites so that we could stay for the night. BUT, the site she assigned to us was right on a very busy street and also quite close to the interstate. We also discovered that the campground is right in the landing path for a nearby airport. She offered to comp the second stay and arranged a partial refund of our fees. We stayed one night (with very little sleep between motorcycles on the street, airplanes landing, and semis on the interstate) and left the next morning.

Good location, although somewhat noisy from major roads nearby. Friendly staff. Free hot showers. Internet and cable had poor reception at times.

this was perhaps the biggest disappointment in our travels through 12 different states this summer. I was told it was quiet in some places and when I called for reservations I was told I would be put in a quiet spot. When we checked in I asked if we were in a quiet spot and was told we were. We were placed in a spot that was right along the highway -- horrible traffic noise all night long. It was to well kept and the sewer connection did not have a cover on it which made the site very smelly.... Read More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way home to Virginia. This is a great location just off the interstate for visiting the city of Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. The site was a back-in with water/sewer (4") and electric together for an easy connection. For as close as we were to all the roads, the park was very quiet. Only interacted with the staff on arrival and they were very friendly and helpful. We used our trailer facilities mostly but visited the rest room and laundry on a walk... Read More

The facilities were clean, showers very private and plenty of washers & dryers. Our Verizon cell service was 4G here and the sites WiFi was excellent.

If you go to this campground, ask for one of the spaces in the very back, where the trees are. We were fortunate to get a nice big spot with grass and tree cover, which was nice. I thought the restrooms were nice and clean, and generally, the campground was nice. A bit close to the highway so there was some noise. We never met anyone who worked there, so I can't comment on the service, other than to say there was none. We'd stay there again for a night if we needed a stopover, but it would... Read More

One night stay to enable us to visit the Falls. Closest campground to them but not easy to get to the Falls due to construction. This is an older campground that needs a lot of improvements. Roads and sites are paved. Many seasonal and semi-permanent residents. Located just off the interstate in a business area but little highway noise. Main restroom very clean and modern, the small restroom nearest our site old and in need of replacement. There is cable - you are given a remote and specific... Read More

If the remote is not returned on departure, you will be sent a bill. Would probably return.

We stayed here for a month and that was definitely a month too long. This campground is rude and not attentive to there campers needs. There was a gang of people who thought they owned the campground. Kicked people out of the laundry room to play poker, parked in our campsite to the point that we couldn't get our truck in. When Told, the camp manager was rude with us!! And said "oh there having a party." This happened 4 or more times. Seriously we are complaining because someone is literally blocking... Read More

When Told, the camp manager was rude with us!! And said "oh there having a party." This happened 4 or more times. Seriously we are complaining because someone is literally blocking our driveway. We will never recommend this place to anyone. Finally after being fed up with the horrible situation, we booked another campground for the next two months and left three days before we were supposed to. Didn't ask for a refund just was ready to finally start enjoying SD. Road noise was also very loud, sites were small and the whole place just felt trashy.

Very terrible experience here. Other campers had no respect for our site and when management was confronted, they acted like it wasn't a big deal. Several times we couldn't even get into our Campsite for others parking in our spot but it wasn't any concern of the campground managers. The vibe when we first arrived a month ago, was rude and unwelcoming. Facilities at the campground were subpar. Bathrooms were always messy, laundry room was dirty and overcrowded with people playing poker. Road noise... Read More

The vibe when we first arrived a month ago, was rude and unwelcoming. Facilities at the campground were subpar. Bathrooms were always messy, laundry room was dirty and overcrowded with people playing poker. Road noise is awful, to the point where it keeps you up at night. They have cable but it cuts in and out. Just an overall bad experience and a month was a month too long. Campsites were tiny and packed like sardines. Would not recommend to anyone.

The campground was easy to find, right off a main city street, and just a short distance from I-90. The office was closed when we arrived, approx. 4:00pm, our site information was in a glass case near the door so no big deal. The site was gravel, but level all utilities were convenient. the site was clean. The park appears to have two sides, one for overnighters and one for more permanent people, We did not use the bathrooms. We never saw a employee of the park during our stay.

Stayed only one night, but it was a good stay. Good hookup, spacious site, and staff very friendly. I didn't use the shower or restrooms so can not fairly evaluate them, but based on the park, I would say all would be fine. Close to interstate, gas stations, and for me, most importantly, a Catholic church. Minus one star for no picnic table at site. It's picky, but you come to expect those at a park.

Nice park just off I-29. Paved roads and sites. Roads are in just OK condition. Site in good condition. Most sites have at least some shade. Not great space between sites, but OK. Picnic table provided. No wi-fi or cable. Very clean bathrooms. Entrance is on main drag just a few minutes from downtown. Make sure to visit Falls Park. Lots of shopping just a couple of miles down I-29. If you are coming from the north on I-29. get off at exit 80 and take the back roads around to the park. The road at... Read More

If you are heading south and you get off at exit 79, you'll have to do a very tight u-turn.

If you get the old side, DO NOT STAY!!! Dirty, filthy, disgusting! Full of work trucks, tiny children running around unsupervised, work truck with loud engines coming in all night. Not a blade of grass to be found anywhere! Substantial amount of full time trashy units. The highway noise was the significant but the least of the worries! It was worrisome to leave the unit to go out for dinner and certainly wouldn't have taken my dog for a walk after dark. Never again! Still can't believe Good... Read More

Still can't believe Good Sam gave it good ratings .... their credibility is damaged on this one! Ps .... I would give this no stars, but was unable to post without star rating

The Mgr met us as we pulled in, the office was already closed but showed us to our choices of sites... he was even offered to take my wife to the store around the corner for ice so that we didnt have to unhook. It appeared on this part of the park there were some long term campers, But met a couple and were nice and friendly... It was a nice stay even thought it was just an overnight and didnt use any facilities.

Level parking on blacktop, 50 amp service, great water pressure and sewer. WiFi was very good and dish satellite channels came in great. I would recommend it to anyone and I will definitely stay there again.

Great staff that go out of there way to make sure you get a site you like. My site was large and level. Power and water was real good. Even got Dish to come in. Cable is included and worked great. They are working on the park all the time to make it better but for the price it was a bargain.
