We both really loved this spot. There is really only one site that can handle a large rig. We are 38 ft and were in site 15. We had plenty of space and it was a very beautiful private location. All of the sites are lovely but some are very small. The park is very well maintained by the fantastic hosts who have spent many hours improving it. No one told us about generator hours so we ran ours during the day hoping it wouldn’t bother anyone. There are nice walking trails and a paved biking trail that we took into Three Forks for lunch one day. There is so much history in this area I would never tire of returning. I would go back in a heartbeat!

This is a very beautiful park with large grassy sites and nice mature trees. The roads are all good gravel and the sites are gravel though not very level. It rained a lot when we were there and there was no mud at all. It is easy to get around, the staff is helpful and the Wi-Fi worked fine. There is no cable and no local TV. We were very disappointed to find out that the laundromat was closed. We had to go to the Pilot Gas Station to do our laundry. The office does not open until 1:00 PM, which made it hard to make adjustments or shop in the store. This is a great location to explore the area. I don’t think I would go back because of the hours, no cable, only 30 amp power and no laundry. That seems like a lot missing for the money spent.

Rate is Passport America. This is one of the best RV parks we have been to. The owners not only try to make it nice they seem to have found the magic formula that most miss. Our pull-through was level, the interior roads are good gravel and wide enough to make it easy to get around and the utilities all worked well. Management and staff were very friendly and personally invited us to an ice cream social where we were told about all there is to do in the area. We had grass and a picnic table at our site but little afternoon shade. The well maintained grounds are beautiful and there is a small stocked pond to watch the sunset/sunrise or fish. Wi-Fi worked well as did our Verizon phones. There was no cable but there were a few local channels that we were able to pick up. Also they had free DVDs to borrow. We enjoyed walking into town more than once and there are a few restaurants and a small well stocked grocery store. There is also a farmer’s market one day a week. The sites were narrow and there is no cable or I would have given them a 10.

First, the positives – Interior roads were good gravel. The sites had grass. Laundry, once someone cleaned it up, was good although there are only 2 very small washers and 2 dryers. I needed two machines to wash my queen sheets. One of the dryers is so high that you must use a step stool to reach it. The showers were very clean individual units but when there were a few people using them you could get the freeze and scald routine. Management was very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi and cable worked very well, as did our Verizon phones. There is a nice dog run but a shade tree and a chair to sit on would be nice. Now the not so good – our pad was terrible. By day two we had sunk so much on one side that we had to re-hitch and move over about 2 feet to get level. They water the grass each night so everything is always wet, including the edges of the pad. All the picnic tables were at the back of the sites which was not very inviting to us. We had a back-in site which had no sewer hookups. Upon leaving we had to find the owner to unlock the dump station so we could use it. The public access road is very narrow so be careful going in. I would not return unless I HAD to be in Livingston.

Rate is for Passport America. This is a perfect park for visiting Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park in the Badlands National Forest. Access to the park was good as was getting around on the gravel roads. Management and staff were very helpful. Our site was gravel and very level. We had a small bit of grass, a picnic table and a fire ring. There are few trees but most sites are lined up so that you have afternoon shade in your patio area. The showers are individual and looked clean. The laundry, while more money than I am used to paying, was very nice and clean with newer machines. Wi-Fi worked very well but not too many channels on the cable. Utilities were good. There was a small playground for the children and a dog walking area. I thought this was an excellent campground and would certainly return.

What a nice RV park, located within walking distance of Wall Drug. I enjoyed our stay here and would come back. Management was very pleasant when I made my reservation and also when we checked in. Interior roads and pads are gravel and in good shape. Our site was very level. We had grass, a small tree and a picnic table. Our dog enjoyed the dog park. There is a nice play area for the children and the laundry looked good but I didn’t use it or the bathrooms. The Wi-Fi was the best we have had in 4 months of travel. The park is right next to the railroad but it did not bother us at all.

This park has nice paved roads and pads with grass and a picnic table. The pad was level and fairly wide. I was told quite curtly that the only pull-throughs they had were in the old section and I could have that if I wanted dirt and tight trees. With a large 5th wheel we had a difficult time backing into the site that was shared with another right behind us--about 7 feet. The road was very narrow. We had no choice but to un-hitch as the space was too short. Parking was provided next to the pad. Most of the sites have permanent residents and at 7 AM all the trucks start up and people leave for work. There are few overnight sites available. Call ahead! The laundry is nice and clean but not all machines work all the time. Management is aware of the problem but have not fixed it. I did not use the restrooms. We followed the directions on the web site, which tell you to make a U-turn but we were too big and had to go around the block, so access is not easy. The park is located right next to the noisy freeway which makes being outdoors very unpleasant. Utilities worked well and the Internet worked occasionally.

Rate is Passport America. What a little gem this is if you like small quiet parks. We stopped here just for an overnighter. There isn’t much else around so we didn’t even unhitch. The manager was very welcoming and took us personally to our site which was a long and wide, level pull-through with a shade tree that didn’t interfere with our slides, grass and a nice picnic table and fire ring. We had our choice of 30 or 50 amp and the water pressure was perfect. The Wi-Fi worked just fine. It was so quiet and peaceful there with big trees and lots of grass. There was even an area in the back where I was able to let my dog run off leash a bit. I would definitely return. This park is a favorite!

Rate is for Passport America. Loved this park. Our site was level and we were able to remain hooked up. Access from the freeway was easy and the noise was minimal. We had a nice pull-thru with grass, table and fire pit. Management was very friendly, water and power were good. But, as we are finding in so many places, WiFi was not very good and during the peak time there was none. There were a few permanent residents but they are in a different area and unless you take a walk you won’t even see them. The bathrooms and showers were clean. They have a beautiful tent area in the trees that made for good dog walking. We would visit again.

Rate cited is based on the monthly rate. I am very undecided about this park because it is full of conflicts for me. The owners and the staff are wonderful and they work so hard each day to maintain the park. Parts of it are so beautiful and then there is the part that is so terrible. There is a beautiful pond with geese and green manicured grass all around it. The bathrooms and showers are incredible. Each one is an individual bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. There are plenty of them and they are immaculate. The laundry is very small with just 3 washers and 3 dryers but the price is very reasonable. There a fantastic swimming pool that is enjoyed by children all day and evening. They have a great play area for the kids and a party pavilion. This park really caters to families on vacation and many of the RVs are there for the season with families coming when they can. There are quite a few permanent residents but their area is clean and neat and if you are not out walking, you wouldn’t even notice them. The road in is very narrow but we managed as no one was coming from the opposite direction. Once in the park, the roads are terrible. They are a mix of old broken paving and gravel. The sites are all gravel and not at all level. We had quite a time and never did get our RV leveled properly. But most of them are large with a grassy area, a table and a fire ring. Very few have trees for shade. We were told to use a water regulator as the water pressure was too high. That gave us very, very low pressure. The Wi-Fi did not work. When we arrived we were told that it might get fixed in a day or two. It was never fixed in the whole month we were there. We had TV with our antennae. I would go back as management works so hard to be constantly improving it and it is a great location for visiting the Lexington area.

We had no idea that the road into this campground would be so steep and windy with hairpin turns. The price of beauty I think. We had 50 amp power, water at our site and our phone and internet (both Verizon) worked. The site was nothing but dirt but our rig sat on asphalt and we did have a picnic table, a fire ring and a grill. We were glad we have a rug. It took some leveling but we managed to get settled and it was beautiful. There were few other campers near us; the campground was almost empty as it was a weekday. Most of the sites are very small and if it had been full we would have felt very cramped. I could see no evidence of camp hosts or park rangers. No one seems to clean these sites. We didn’t use the showers but they looked fair. We did enjoy the hiking trails that run near the campground. Because of the access and the size of our rig (38 ft fifth wheel) I don’t think I would come back. This place was definitely built for smaller campers.

This was one of our most favorite places in all of our travels. It is well maintained and absolutely gorgeous. Interior roads are in very good shape. The campsites are well maintained by the very friendly staff. Restrooms are attended to at least twice a day and are very clean. We were fortunate to have a full hook-up site as there are not too many of them. But all sites are beautiful. Our Internet worked only because we have an antenna booster. Our Verizon phones did not work at our site. We really enjoyed all of the hiking trails and the beauty of the lake. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Rate reflects Golden Age Passport discount and includes the online registration fee. This was our second visit to the park and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The park is gorgeous with a wonderful lake for boating and fishing. It is a shame that the infrastructure of the park is falling into such disrepair. There is a total absence of people working there. The fire rings are not cleaned out, the picnic tables need repair and the asphalt roads and site pads appear to be falling apart. The roads are full of pot holes and are narrow, but that still cannot take away from the natural beauty that is there to be enjoyed. We had water and 30 amp electric at our site and both worked well and our site was fairly level. Most of the sites have very small activity areas. In some of them, the picnic table and fire ring take up all the space available and you would be hard pressed to get your camp chairs around the fire ring. I used the showers each day as they were OK with plenty of hot water but not necessarily very clean. The office is not open much and the staff is lethargic at best. We did use the laundry facility which was very reasonably priced. We were in site no. 50 which was in the most popular area because there is direct access to the water for fishing or playing in the water. Some campers tied their small boats up right at their campsite. Our site had a very large activity area and was very private but with no view of the water. (There was a trail that led to the water just 20 feet away). Sites 40 to 48 are right on the water. If we were returning we would possibly stay at site 6 which is very quiet, private and has a great view of the water. We also like 53 as it has a view of the water and a little trail to a private beach area. The tent areas are the most beautiful I have ever seen and we walked those trails almost daily as they had awesome views of the lake. We enjoyed a week and would return.

I have mixed feelings about this park. It is lovely with a tidal creek and pond, marshland around, bridges and paths. The roads are paved and the pads are very level gravel. All is very neat and tidy. But the pads are VERY small, the picnic tables are not allowed on the grass and don’t fit in the small space next to the rig. It is in the way and we have to walk around it on the grass to get to and from the truck and it is difficult to open our storage compartment. I don’t think they thought about slides when they built this place, as the space is so narrow. There are few shade trees which makes satellite reception good. We didn’t try the cable. Wi-Fi is good most of the time but not all. Management was very friendly and helpful. Stores are quite a distance away. The location is convenient right off of I-10. I would come back for an overnighter.

I believe someone called this campground a Hidden Gem and that is exactly what it is. We planned about three days and just keep extending. By the time we leave it will be over a week. It is quiet and beautiful with great views of the lake. All the sites are excellent; not a bad one at all. Not all sites have water views but if not they have beautiful forest views. The sites are large with level paved pads, a fire ring, gravel patio area and a picnic table. Some of the picnic tables need help but we got a good one. We are in site #20 with a view of the lake across the road. We are on the back half of the loop and most people don't come this far so there is no one around us. About half the sites can be reserved and the rest are for walk-ins. Only 15, 16 and 17 seem to get reserved. The bathrooms need some help but they work. We have 50 amp power and good water. There is a dump station on the way out. Our Verizon phones and jet pack don’t work very well but sometimes they are fine. The Sugar Cane Trail goes through the park and is a wonderful walk in the woods. It is good for mountain biking also. The rate reflects the Golden Age discount. I would definitely return.
