Big Pine is the kind of place you have in mind when you go camping. Nice people, great sites in the trees and quiet. Some of the sites provide more space and shade than others so you may want to Google Maps before making reservations. Our site had FHU and the connections were all where they were supposed to be. Firewood was $4 per bundle and they delivered. Nice laundry facility, $2.00 to wash and $.75 to dry for 30 minutes. Convenient to Custer, Crazy Horse Monument and Mount Rushmore. A great price for a great place.

This is a very cool campground because it's located right in the Badlands. We had a nice view to the West in the morning but a great view to the East in the evening . I had to level both ways but it wasn't too bad. Most of the campers were in tents rather than RVs but it was very quiet. The dump station area had plenty of room and was easy to enter and exit.

The site was just an o.k. place to stay for overnight. Our site was a bit unlevel in both directions but manageable. It's about 3 miles off the Interstate but was a pleasant drive. Take lots of bug spray because the mosquitoes were very bad here. The rate include the $5 daily Minnesota State Park charge.

This campground is very convenient to downtown Sioux Falls. They do not take reservations but the rate is hard to beat for a full hook-up site. The utilities worked well and the site was somewhat level. We stayed in a pull-thru site by the grandstands and didn't have any road or train noise. Others mentioned airplane noise but we only heard that once. My only problem was the Prairie Dogs. They were everywhere and wouln't have bothered me except it rained the night before we left and their burrows became mud holes. We would stay here again.

This was one of the nicer KOAs we have stayed. The front desk person was friendly and led us to our site. All utilities worked well and the site was level. It appears they had just layed down a fresh layer of crushed stone throughout the park. My only complaint is that the sites are so close together. We would stay here again.

This campground is very convenient and we stayed here for 6 nights while visiting relatives. The utilities worked well but the water and electric were right outside our door but the sewer was on the opposite side of the RV. Even though inconvenient, our water hose and electrical cord reached because the sites are quite close together. We stayed in site G-4 for three nights and got very little sleep due to the street noise. We moved to site B-8 for the last three nights and the road noise was not as bad. I would stay here again because it is so convenient.

This was a very nice, family oriented campground. Lots of grass for those who were in tents. The utilities worked well and the site was level. Our site was way in the back and was extremely quiet. We would stay here again.

Site was long and good spacing between sites. All hook ups worked well. It rained so hard for the two days we were here that we didn't get out much and the park was almost empty. When exiting the park, watch out for the very large low hanging tree branch just before the check-in station. It's not a problem on the way into the campground.

They had just layed down a fresh layer of dustless fine gravel over the entire campground a couple days before we checked in. The owner's son guided us to our spot and helped us back in and get situated. He was very accomodating and informed us about places to go in the surrounding area. The site was level, clean and very quiet at night. There are a fair number of permanent residents here but was not a problem. The only negative was the person next to us who had a dog tied up on a rope and never cleaned up after it so I had to dodge doogie "poo" on my way to hook up the sewer hose. I would stay here again.

Our space had a very fine gravel base, was level and the utilities were well placed. Office staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The campground and site was easy to get into and exit. We will stay here again when in the Indy area.

I stayed here last year and was not very impressed. This year however, was different. The staff was very friendly and they offered a site that was level so we didn't need to separate truck from camper. The office attendant even told me exactly where to park, within the site, in order to be perfectly level. We only stayed the one night so we didn't use any of the facilities. We will stay here again.

I really like this place. It was close and convenient to the PEI Ferry and all utilities were in good shape. The site was level and Wi-Fi was strong at site #2. The owners are very nice and were in the process of adding new sites toward the back of the property. The pool was not opening until the next day but they told us we could use it if we wanted. The seasonal residents were also very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice Provincial Park with fantastic views! There are trails down to view the beach during low tide and the tide fluxuates 40+/- feet twice each day. The hill going up to the campground is very steep so you need a good head start if pulling a heavy RV. They have wooded sites as well as open meadow sites. We were in site #74 which had an amazing view and I think it was the best in the park. Site #74 is supposed to accommodate an RV up to 30 feet long but you could easily put a larger one on it as long as you park parallel to the road. The only problem with this site is that it can get very windy up there, but the view is one you will not forget. Very nice folks run the park and the campground is very quiet and well maintained. The roads leading to the park are very rough but if you like "dry camping" and are in this area you should really try it out. I gave it a 9 only because the trails needed some attention but that could have been because we were there early in the season.

The rate is for a pull-thru site with a Good Sam discount. This place is a bit of a drive from the interstate but it is very quiet. The site is very level and utilities are well placed. The internet service is also very good and cable is adequate. The hill going up to the the campsites was interesting. The sign at the bottom of the hill says, "maintain 20 mph" and I found out why. It is really quite a climb up to the sites so make sure you don't slow down until you get to the top. My only real complaint is the price. However, supply and demand is the rule here because there is not much in the way of choice in this area. We would return again.

The rate is for Passport America. We stayed two nights and it was very quiet and close to all Gettysburg sites. We had a pull-thru site and the utilites were adequate and well-placed. The biggest problem was that our site was very unlevel. I was able to level it left-to-right but was about one bubble off from front to back using all the boards I had and with the front legs fully retracted. I didn't see very many other sites that were more level than the one we had. I would think grading off gravel in sites would be part of normal maintainence. I liked this place, but would probably try another campground due to the site being so unlevel.
