We chose this place based on what was available. It is one of several lined along the highway which runs up a mountain and through a canyon just outside of Deadwood. It was about a fifteen minute drive back into the town. This particular park is built on a ledge above a gas station and some rental cabins. We really weren't prepared for all the ATV and motorcycle folks in this small park and, in general, everywhere else. There are about eight pull thrus and the rest of the sites are back in. The pull thrus were easy in and out for us but we were perched on the edge of the ledge and right on the road between the pull thrus and the back ins. Not exactly conducive to sitting out in the evening. The fire pit was so close to our rig I didn't feel it would be safe to use. There was also a picnic table at each site on a little concrete pad. All the sites had some grass. They were level and the hook ups were conveniently located. There was no cell service and no wifi, even our hot spot was useless. The tv reception was also very dismal, both the satelite(Dish) and antennae. There was no cable. Made for some long evenings. The staff was friendly and the adjacent gas station/convenience store was pretty well stocked. The highway quieted down considerably after the sun went down.

This campground is close to I-80. We were given a pull-through. It was not very level but long enough for us to remain hooked up. This is a very basic park. It has a lot of what appear to be permanents and is not very well kept up. If all the spaces were actually used you would be very close to your neighbor in some spots. The man who checkeds us in was friendly and guided us into our spot.The area had recently had some heavy rain and we were unable to use the shortcut into town. The longer route was available and was about a ten minute walk right into town. We did not check out the bathrooms or laundry.

This is a very basic little campground right off the freeway. When you exit the freeway, you have to watch carefully for the entrance to this park, as it is behind a big motel and it is difficult to see. The pull-through site was long enough to allow us to remain hitched. It was level and easy to access. The sites are gravel with grassy areas next to each rig and individual picnic tables. There are trees as well that provide shade. The laundry room was very clean and very reasonably priced. The staff was friendly. There was very little highway noise, even tho you are right near the road. This was our second time here and we will return.

This is a very conveniently located park. It was right next to the Dairy Queen! It is also near a fuel stop that was easy for us to get into and out of with our rig attached, and near the road. We were here for only one night and did not unhitch. The pull thrus are very long (70+ ft.). Unfortunately the new gravel the fairly new owners just laid down is partially dirt and pretty deep so that, with the recent rains, it was quite muddy. There are large spaces between sites and all the sites have grassy areas and trees. The hook ups were easy to access. It was very quiet. The new owners were very friendly and eager to please. We would return to this park again.

Do NOT forget to tell staff if you have Passport America. They will not ask and if you forget you cannot get a refund! This is our third visit to this park. It is convenient to Iowa City as well as about a half an hour off of I-80. Very quiet and situated very close to the quaint villages that encompass the Amana Colonies. The roads and sites are gravel with grass alongside. Due to recent heavy rains the entire area was quite soggy. Our spot was a pull thru only as long as a second person was not backed into the site behind us, and then they were quite close to our rear window. The sites are gravel and level and sufficiently wide for slide outs. The utilities are on a shared post with both fifty and thirty amp available. There is no shade in the area. The staff was friendly and available. There was a big Good Sam rally beginning while we were there but they were able to make room for our stay.

This is our third stay at this park. We were here for only one night this time. It is close to the highway but with little road noise. It is small but sufficient. The spaces are gravel and level and not too tight. The hook ups are conveniently located. The laundry facilities are clean and fairly priced. There is only one washer and one dryer. The park is situated on a small lake where fishing is available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will most certainly return.

The office staff was very nice and accommodating to our request for a specific site. The roadway in is partially paved and then gravel. There are speed bumps that resemble curbs so drive slowly. The sites are long and grassy, long enough to remain hitched if you want. They are fairly close together. There are picnic tables and the water, electric and sewer are conveniently located. Not all sites have cable. The laundry facilities are clean, $1.75 for both wash and dry.

First time here. The park and the motel are run together. We have a pull thru in which we were able to remain hitched. The sites are none too level. Hwy 34 passes between the motel and the rv park. We called earlier and made a reservation. Because of that we just pulled into our appointed site and then walked across the highway to register. We were given two coupons for free drinks at the adjoining restaurant. We went there for dinner and were able to have a very nice meal for less than $20!! There is a rail line behind the park which is active. We are not bothered by train noise. We would return, and would recommend this park to friends.

This is our first stay here. The park is very close to I-80 but the traffic noise was negligible. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was fairly level and big enough to allow us to remain hitched. It was easy to get into and out of.

This is a nice park to spend a few days in. North Platte is a nice little community, altho the choice for grocery stores left a lot to be desired. The laundry in the park is very clean and reasonably priced. The park is easy to access from I-80 and, even tho the freeway is close, the traffic noise is negligible. We have stayed here before and would recommend it to friends. The staff was helpful and the entire park is very neat and tidy.

This is a good place for one night. The site is large enough to leave the truck hitched. The park is four miles from the state border, a little way off of I-80 but really easy to get to. We have been here before and will probably return and would recommend it to friends.

We were here five years ago and I must say, nothing has changed. It is still a gravel parking lot with a view of the 'tank farm'. The only redeeming grace is that it exists because there is no other game in town. It is easy to access off the freeway. I can stand one night there!! The price far outreaches what you get in return. The staff was nice, even when they informed me, with a straight face, that one load of laundry would cost me $5 total, wash and dry!! Highway robbery for sure.

Since this is the only game in town we are forced to pay the high price. It is convenient to downtown SLC and to our friends. On the whole it is probably better than most of the KOA parks we have stayed at in terms of site size and ease of access.

We have stayed here before. It is a lovely park, lots of beautiful trees, level sites that are easy to access. The staff is helpful. We will return again.

Very nice park with large pull-throughs adjoining concrete patios with picnic tables. The only downside is the extremely large gravel in the pull-through area. It is very soft and the truck and RV really bogged down plowing through. Required a little leveling. The whole park is very neat and tidy. There are many full time rigs around the outer perimeter but they appeared to be well cared for and policed by the park. They were not unsightly. The staff was friendly and we were guided to our site. There is a nice swimming pool and hot tub and a paved trail around the outside perimeter of the park to walk your dog. There are trees planted about every three sites but there is not very much shade in actuality. It is very convenient to the freeway and easy to find/access. We would return again.
