The owners are awesome, very helpful. Sites are large, with beautiful shade trees. We had 2 teenage grandsons with us and they had a blast in the pool.

Friendly greeting and escort to site, which are gravel. Off season stay, not sure how the rating is so high, as I would say this campground is just ok for an overnight stay. Clean surroundings, restrooms need updating. Moderate highway noise. We had rain overnight and woke up to ankle deep water outside camper, so site needed regrading. It worked for what we needed, but not a destination site.

Located on dirt road on outskirts of Mitchell. Small campground with many seasonal campers. When we were there, they’d had over 2” of rain the previous night so roads were muddy with little ditches to drain the water. Quiet, little traffic. Close enough to Mitchell for shopping and visiting The Corn Palace. Restrooms very clean and well-stocked, owners very friendly and helpful. Would return.

Stopped at Dakota Campground in Mitchell, SD. Stayed in spot 57. They did not guide us to our spot. There was a playground next to our spot. This is a kid friendly campground. We were very pleased with the park and it was a great value.

We have been here a few times. The sites are nice, level and wide. Never an issue with water or electric. Quick and simple check-in. We use our own bathroom facilities so can't comment on the restrooms. We had solid Verizon Wifi and didn't use anything the park would offer. Interstate noise was nil and no trains. There are many trees so satellite signals were non-existent. I am sure that visitors who complain about no satellite signal are equal in numbers who complain about no shade. The campground owners can't win with respect to trees... Our concern was the roads. They are gravel and dirt. Our fear was how soupy it would get should it rain. It rained (monsoon) but the roads drained quickly and what we thought would be soup was hard packed and you could barely see tire tracks. We shall return.
