This park appears to be "open to the public" but it's really not a bad campground once all the day/ weekend users/picnikers go home. Actually turns into a regular campground then. Quiet. It is way overpriced for what you get, though. No cable; no wifi; no sewer. A couple of tight turns getting to the pull through sites and it looks like we'll have a tight turn getting out of our site but the sites are long enough for a dually and 40' fiver. I'm not sure how well exiting the campground will go since you're right on a curve and traffic moves rather quickly along Alexander Valley Road.

Stayed at the PA rate. Stopped here on our way north and enjoyed our stay very much. The roads are paved; lots are level gravel. The pull-thru sites are narrower than the back-in sites so it can get a bit crowded at times. Restrooms are clean with a sink, loo, and shower in each one. Grassy fenced dog area. There are several restaurants within walking distance and the town of Patterson is but a couple of miles away. Very nice town, indeed. We would definitely stay here again.

The campground is convenient to I-90. The only reason I gave it such a low rating is because our campsite was at the edge of a steep hill with a very narrow drive accessing it. We have a 40' RV and I think these lower sites were more suited to a much smaller trailer. However, all facilities worked well and the owners are very friendly. We were planning on staying our usual 2 nights but I had a bit of a problem with the altitude and we had to leave after the first night. Our money was refunded with no problems and we truly appreciated that. We did get our picture taken with the Sundance Kid, though!!

As the others have said, a nice little city park (signs say "Sunset RV Park") at the edge of Hay Springs next to a residential area. Quiet; relatively dark night skies; full hookups (30/50 amp), long pull-thru lots..all for the price of $15. You cannot beat that anywhere. JL Grocery store about 4 blocks; restaurant across the street. If you stay for more than one night, take the short trip to the Saint Mary's Cemetery and look at the stones in the monuments built by Mr. Reid. Absolutely outstanding!! We would have no problems staying here again.

Nice park; lots just long enough. Level. Some lots have sewer, some don't. Lot 1 is the "Wi-Fi" lot. Only 3 channels on antenna. No cable. Facilities worked well. Friendly owners. Badlands right out window, but a short drive will take you even deeper into them. Some road noise from the highway, but in a solid sided camper it's not all that noticeable. The town of Interior has 67 residents and appears to be a town that "was". Campground is for sale. We would stay here again.

Stayed here because it's the only one NOT in the mountains that's PA. Lots are long and level...a bit close together but we were there off season so they put people in every other lot. Good facilities; great cable out of Rapid City. Route 79 does present with some road noise, but not bad in a fiver. Weather was chilly so our windows were closed which helped. I wouldn't really recommend this one for someone with a popup/tent trailer because of that. There is also a train track right next to the highway, but from what we saw, only one train goes through a day/night. No problem for us. Used this as a base camp for Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park. Saw the buffalo herds. Diesel about a mile away at the Flying J on the hill. Pizza store on Route 36 about 1/2 mile away has delicious pizza!! We will stay here again on our next trip to the area.

Pull-thru lots a bit tight but long enough for our 40' RV and truck parked in front. The back-in sites appear to be back-to-back. Train tracks about 50 yards away but very few trains and they go slow. Interstate about 100 yards, but still an okay PPA park. Tons of channels on cable! No problems with the hookups. They have a pool, sauna, and hot tub but we didn't use them at all due to time of year. Black Forest National Cemetery is right up the road; about 6 miles to Sturgis. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very long, level, pull thru sites. Dependable water/electric. Quiet during the day and during the week, but the road in front (Clark Street) seems to be the local drag strip at night. Only 2 channels on antenna. No problem with my Verizon hotspot or cell phone service though. It would be even nicer if they closed State Street between River Road and 1st Avenue to give the campers a little more privacy. Nothing like having cars zipping past your back window! And nothing except the campsites accesses that section of the road. That being said, we would stop here again.

We called before we came because I was wondering if the campground was still there since the last reviews were in 2011. It is, and it's nice. $15 cash a night; self-pay. Long, level, gravel pull throughs and back-ins. Next to Grundy County Lake on a dusty gravel road but not dusty at campground. Road in park is paved. Electric (30/50) and shared water. Make sure you have a water regulator because the pressure here is very strong! Clean restrooms. Walking path to the lake. Easy off Route 20.

What a nice, little campground! Right of I-80, and you do hear some traffic in the background, but it's not loud or annoying. We settled in here for the Labor Day weekend, and it did get crowded but the sites are, while not tight or spacious, adequate. There are some shaded lots (#13 is great!) and others in the sun. There are some full-timers and those who use this park when working in the area. Very friendly owners who both work at other jobs so after school starts, you will only find them there after 5:00. There is a "host," though, that can help with any problems. Water, sewer, electric hookups worked as they should. Didn't go swimming, but the pool is clean. Very clean restrooms. Small laundry. $1.25 wash/$1.00 dry. There is a meeting room for get-togethers and a gas station at the entrance. In fact, you enter at the gas station drive and keep to the left. All-in-all, a nice campground that we'd not hesitate to stay at again and would recommend to others.

The park has improved since we were last here in 2011. Roads are paved; pond is started, and little trees have been planted. Very quiet and downright peaceful. Mostly all-timers here and their sites are kept neat and tidy. Nicely spaced and very long pull through lots. Good TV reception via antenna. Only major problem is the WiFi...basically non-existent. Verizon service good, as was our hotspot. Lawn could have used some mowing. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Level lot was long enough for our 40' fiver, but had to park the truck crosswise in front of it. Mostly all year rounders here, but everyone friendly. WiFi is iffy. Sewer, water and electric good. Clean restrooms at the far end of the park from the overnight pull-thru sites. Park manager very helpful. Two washers and 2 dryers in un-airconditioned section of office. Don't need money for them, but put $3.50/load into honor box. No pool, no playground; just a quiet-ish place for an overnight. Be aware, they charge $1.00 PER NIGHT for using your credit card, so if you're staying a week, it's $7 to use it.

I can’t believe no one has reviewed this campground since last year! We were a little hesitant to stop here for just that reason but after talking to the manager on the phone, his friendliness put us at ease. And a very nice campground it is. They honor camping club memberships so our rate is a Passport America rate. Long level paved lots with drainage slopes at each end (pull-throughs). Had absolutely no trouble with our 40' fiver. Back-ins were also long with the slopes at the end. Restroom are dated but very clean; laundry also very clean. Grass is mowed. Not much in the line of shade, courtesy of Katrina, but the trees are trying to make a comeback. Close to shopping and a great choice of restaurants. Yes, there is considerable noise from the interstate but when you’re inside with the AC running, you barely hear it and it quieted down at night. There is also an airport and train tracks nearby but few trains and fewer planes. We did joke that we felt we were in the middle of “trains, planes, and automobiles”, though. Great cable and Wi-Fi. Easy drive to the Gulf where you’ll find plenty of places to park to enjoy the beach. No pool, but who needs one when the Gulf is about 4 miles away? No picnic tables or grills or playground; just a clean, well-kept campground with easy access to I-10, food, entertainment. Would definitely recommend this to others.

Very nice little RV park right off I-10, but with no noise from there. I called ahead of time to question the supposedly loud music from the truck stop and they said they no longer have that problem. Sites are easy in/easy out, level, and gravel. Great Wi-Fi - great Cable. Laundry is a tad on the expensive side ($2 per wash and $2 to dry), but the laundry is clean with three washers and dryers and a small folding table. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this park to travelers. Oh, and if you stop, leave some time to visit Rayne, Frog City Capital of the World!!

Date of Stay:

Very nice wide, easy access, long pull thru in the shade. Quiet. $130/week. Owner is extremely friendly and he and his staff are quick to address any problems you may have. Had no trouble with cable or WiFi. Laundy is $1 wash, $1 dry; can't beat that. Ice cream truck comes through daily which was sort of fun. Easy access to Mobile; close to Bellingrath Gardens (a must see!). Fishing in Dog River. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
