Friendly hosts' displacement is contagious among guests, as everybody here is always...nice! Hosts try to make effort to stagger guests among sites if campground is not full. While the biggest feature here is probably the location (half-way across SD) do not think you're settling. It's a small campground with a large play area and a nice pool. My only complaint would be that the hookups seem to have been put in many years ago, and they could use a refreshing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location to stop and rest. Check in was smooth and staff was friendly. Campground is close to freeway, which produces noise within the park. Campsites are close together and campground can use some TLC. Close to Al’s Oasis Shopping center (groceries, gift shop, gas station, and diner). Verizon phone received 4G signal. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. Missouri river across the highway, which includes hiking trails and boating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our gravel pull-through site was more than long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad but mildly unlevel side-to-side. Park was clean and well-maintained. Friendly office staff. Some tall trees but none blocked our satellite dish, however some sites may have a problem. Did not test Wi-Fi. Good Verizon signal. Good cable TV. Right next to the freeway so there was a fair amount of traffic noise. Good for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wee stayed here one week night the first week of September. We had a full hookup pull-through site with 60+ channel cable TV. We had some difficulty leveling the RV and positioning it so that tree branches would not scrape the rig. Those are the two major flaws here--the sites are not level and the trees need to be trimmed. The utilities and Wi-Fi worked fine. The laundry and bathrooms are old but clean. The pool was refreshing after a long day. There is also playground equipment. I've misplaced the site map so I can't break down the types of sites. I think they are all full hookup with cable TV and Wi-Fi. I think there are some sites that are satellite friendly; ours was not. The roads are gravel and/or dirt as are the sites. Of the 30 sites that were occupied, most appeared to be extended stay. We were maybe one of half a dozen transients. This is a convenient stop in mid-SD, but not a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Right "next" to Interstate so pretty noisy. Area we were in needed work with grass and rock. We stayed 1 night. Should have looked at site and requested a different one, but we were very tired and not going anywhere so stayed put. Doubt we will stay here again. Other services that are a part of Al's Oasis are located across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are large and well spaced, but the campground is fairly close to I-90 so there is a lot of highway noise. Pool and washrooms are beautiful, people are fantastic. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great place! This was our first stay and we'll definitely return. Campground was clean, quiet for being as close to the Interstate as we were, shaded, laundry was more than adequate, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The ONLY thing better would be an enclosed dog park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an easy on, easy off I-90. We were given a nice long pull through and even though it had rained earlier, we had no trouble leveling our coach. Employees were very friendly and helpful. It isn't a fancy resort, but a good place to get off the road and relax for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an easy on, easy off I-90; with gas, grocery, dining, etc. nearby. Staff is friendly. We'd stay here again. Nice long pull through – it isn't a fancy resort, but a good place to get off the road and relax for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Long, but slightly narrow sites with gravel pads and grass "yards." Few trees provide occasional shadows. Easy on and off the freeway with gas, grocery, dining, etc. nearby. Staff exceptionally friendly. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Site was OK with good power and water. Their Wi-Fi didn't work. We were told they were working on the repair. Cable was good. Bathhouse OK but could use some updating. Grounds need maintenance – grass mowed, bushes trimmed, etc. Good stop over if you are traveling I-90. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is just an okay park for a one night stay. Roads are gravel and pitted due to the heavy spring rains. Many sites are not level. Full hookups. Easy on and off the highway. Sites in back of park are 100 yards from the highway and extremely noisy. While we did have one of these noisy sites, we didn't have to unhook the tow car because the site was long. About half the sites have clear satellite access. Probably will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is easy to get in and out. There is not much grass, but rather it has weeds with sand stickers in it making it hard to walk the pets. It's a great stop over. Owner was friendly. We will stay here again when we are in the area. Al's restaurant, grocery store and clothing store is close by and several fuel stations. Our site had a concrete pad with a picnic table. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It has been a few years since our last stay here and would not have reviewed the park again except for a factual error in a recent review. That reviewer changed the facilities listings above to indicate that there was NO pool. Although not available this late in the season, there is a pool. This is a very good overnight stop in the middle of SD just off I90. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 2 nights in mid sept.No one here to sign us in until 4 pm .Wi-fi was poor and had hit and miss connection away from office. Not the best kept campground we have been in. Restrooms and shower were large and clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff is nice. Road noise is not too bad. Shade is minimal, if any. Close to: well, only the small town over the river because there is not much to do here in this area. Fine for a convenient overnight with quick pull off the Interstate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice long site, but not very level. They obviously don't clean up the sites because there were empty soda bottles and trash in our site. The pool, showers, and bathrooms were clean. We walked across to the restaurant and the food wasn't worth the walk. We would probably try somewhere else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is part of a conglomerate of necessities: gas, grocery, restaurant, souvenirs. Nice, extra long back in site, width was more than adequate. They were pretty busy but we think there were a lot of locals as it was the weekend after 4th of July. The young girl in the office was friendly and cheerful. The WiFi was spotty. We had to sit outside to use it, it would not work inside our trailer. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Simple campground and a great place to stop near I-90. I found the staff to be quite friendly, and I could walk to the restaurant, which meant I didn't have to unhook. This is a nice area, right next to the Missouri River. I stopped here in 1998 when my brother and I were doing the Lewis and Clark trail. I remembered it so wanted to come back on this trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK campground for overnight. We did use the pool; it was OK. The restaurant up the road was just OK. Sites were typical for just off the highway type campground. We stayed one night and would stay her again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our campsite was adequate, utilities in good working order, good cable selection, and strong free Wi-Fi. So why the 5 rating? Lack of customer service! We called the day prior to arrival, asking for a pull through. During that phone call, I asked the camp worker for directions. She could not give me the exit number, although it turned out it didn't matter, there were billboards galore with that information. We arrive early afternoon, and the office is locked. Not a soul around, no check in packet, no campground map: nothing. We walked around and found the pull through sites, and took one. We got set up. I went to the office later in the day, and was told that the site we picked was assigned to another camper, and we should move to our assigned site. Now how were we supposed to know what site was ours when there was no information available upon arrival? In the end, we did not have to move, but it was aggravating to say the least. We will try another campground the next time in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here on our way to the Badlands. Not bad CG for an overnight. Not near as impressive as the internet makes it look. Our site was long enough for our 35' travel trailer and pickup but really unlevel. In a pinch we would possibly stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Basic park right off I-90. We had a long and level pull through, 50 amp. Wi-Fi not working, lots of road noise. Advertised as "adjacent to" Al's Oasis Restaurant, but the restaurant is really "down the road" too far to walk. Unattended before 4pm, pick a site and come back to pay. Overall, this was a real disappointment and we will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When they said we could have a long pull through they were not kidding. They have some very long and level sites. Very friendly staff, everything clean, great over night stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's a basic park, but the sites are wide and long if you are pulling a tow vehicle and don't want to unhook. Our site was quite level, but had a hard time reaching the sewer connection. The office staff was fun to banter with and the check-in was easy. Our site was close to the interstate hiway, but far enough away that the noise wasn't an issue. The Wi-Fi signal was quite strong. If in the area, I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight park, but a bit noisy if parked close to I-90. Easy check in, long, easy access pull through for our 38' 5th wheel. Grounds keeping needs attention...lots of area with overgrown weeds/grass. Good pool, especially if you have kids along. Would stay again if passing through the area but one day is plenty. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Again, it’s hot and we got a little shade in the pull-through site. The biggest plus was the labeling on the “power” tower. Each switch was clearly identified as to which plug it controlled. Never have seen this very nice detail at any park before! Overnight stop so did not use any of the facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great overnight park when traveling across South Dakota. It's just off the interstate with long pull-through sites. Easy to move a 40 foot MH around. They could fix a few pot holes and trim a few trees, but otherwise a good place to park. The restrooms were super clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground may also be listed as the Oasis. Fairly level, spacious grass and dirt sites with picnic tables. Owner needs to invest in some gravel, a few muddy spots. Heated pool was clean and maintained, no playground that I saw. Full hookups. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean bathrooms and showers. Large laundry room with commercial machines gets an A+. Grocery store and gas station across the street. Near the highway but I didn't notice any noise. Ice and firewood for sale. Good Sam location. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy to get in and out. Lots of room, with shade. Very friendly management. We walked to grocery store, and she showed up with golf cart and carried our excess groceries to rig. Cable TV, Wi-Fi (4 bars!) water, sewer and electric, no issues whatsoever. Close to I-90, but we were so tired, slept well with no interference. We will make a point to stop on way back west. (Even got a coupon for .04 cents off a gallon of gasoline across street.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, well kept campground. Very wide sites, 50 amp, pull throughs. Obviously laid out by somebody who knew camping. I believe it is part of the famous Al's Oasis complex of stores and restaurants which is nearby. We went out to the Indian museum and the Indian trail loop and were several hours past checkout. We called and they were very nice about it. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Right next to I-90, as others have said so road noise may be a problem for some. We were here only overnight, as was planned, however, some sites, including ours, were extremely muddy. They've obviously been doing some digging for sewers at sites, and the grass had not grown in. In addition, they had not replaced the stone in the area to park the RV. Very very messy with all the mud. We'd stay again if just an overnight, but not for any longer. We'd also make reservation for specific site to avoid road noise and low-lying sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground. The laundry is clean and reasonably priced. The highway noise is somewhat annoying, but being on the road for months, it's tolerable. Staff very friendly. Our site was level and clean. Restaurant and larger grocery store are within walking distance. Wi-Fi is a bit weak, but tolerable. Excellent Verizon access. Nice clean swimming pool near bathhouse. We'd stay here again, no question about it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is right next to I-90, so lot's of noise. Just not what we expected. Okay for an overnight. We were supposed to stay 3 days, but left the next day. No one in office on arrival. A travel trailer came in next to us and they are also leaving early. There is a playground, but not in good shape. Pool was not ready. Did not use bathrooms or laundry. Would stay again if nothing else available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice wide level sites. Pristine bathrooms. Very clean park and very friendly staff. Excellent Wi-Fi reception. The only negative was the highway noise, but with AC on and windows closed, it was not a major problem. Pet and kid friendly. Would not recommend the restaurant. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice campground with level sites. Lots of grass. Some sites narrow but most are roomy; we had a huge end site. Very pet friendly. We had a beautiful view of the Missouri River but also were only a few hundred feet from I-90. We stayed for 7 days to do full timer chores, but if road noise bothers you, cut it shorter. Excellent Lewis and Clark center nearby as well as other historic attractions. Beautiful pool was lighted at night. The Labor Day family crowd had a ball! The Oasis Restaurant has ripoff prices. We would (briefly) stop back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this campground because of its location across the street from Al's Oasis, an interesting place to say the least! We had a nice level pull through, cable and very good WI-FI. The hostess was friendly and efficient. The pool was great! In walking distance from a good restaurant at the Oasis across the street. They give a gasoline discount for a station which is also across the street. Restrooms and showers were spotless and pleasant. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I saw some positive reviews and that's why we selected this place. It is a bit of a disappointment. We did get a pull through, 50 amp full hook up site. My surge protector found a fault with the 50 amp hook up. Hours ago I was told someone would come and look at it. Road noise is very loud. It's a dusty place. We'll survive but this is not a GEM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here last year too. It hasn't changed a bit. It's a good place to spend a night while trying to work your way across I-90. The pull through sites are close together, I feel weird knowing my sewer connection is so near my neighbors picnic table. On the plus side Al's has a good grocery store and fuel, gas and diesel. The staff is teenage girls with typical attitudes but they did take care of us. The pool looked good and there were lots of people taking advantage of it. There were quite a few tent campers and rest of the park was nearly full. Our pull through site was level and everything worked. The Wi-Fi was good. All in "Al" it was a decent place to spend a night on the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Easy on and off I-90. There's also a motel, restaurant, shops, it's a huge complex. The WiFi works well, the office staff was lovely. I have the air on, so no traffic noise from I-90, I have a view of a lake across the interstate. There are things to do nearby. The price reflects the Good Sam discount, and a 30 amp site. Both my Verizon and my Sprint phones work. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good overnight spot. Has great restrooms, showers, the best I have ever seen in a campground. Road noise, as it is close to I-90. Interior roads need work, grass/weeds between sites need to be cut. Has small sites between pull through. Would stay here again. They charge extra for over 2 people. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped here for a night on our way back from MN. Adequate facilities, cable and Wi-Fi. We hit some bad thunderstorms on the way and this was an "Oasis" for us. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again if passing though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground sits on hills above I-90 and Missouri River. Very easy access from interstate. Sites are not very level and we only had 30 amp electric, good cable and WiFi. One good thing you have nice grocery store and restaurant within walking distance of campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bees were swarming the coach after we pulled in. A small battle with the bug spray later, they moved on. Site was not level, dirt and was right off the highway. Al's Oasis may or may not be associated with the campground. Al's Oasis is down the road (you can walk) and was a nice store for stock up on our trip toward Yellowstone. Across from Al's Oasis Store is an area that seems okay for dry camping if you are so inclined. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here on our way to Yellowstone. The office staff was very friendly. The sites were reasonably level and dry for the amount of rain the area had. However, we were put in a pull through near the playground. The kids were allowed to play basketball and ride their bikes until midnight with no supervision from their parents or enforcement of the rules from park officials. Everyone in the office had gone home. If you stay here either come with a car load of kids or park far away from the basketball court. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed one night on a return trip from Yellowstone. Campsites were nice and long and a reasonable width. Ours was slightly sloped but not too big of a deal. Although close to the Interstate, highway noise was not an issue. Cable service is included in price. Had a nice clean swimming pool and bathrooms were large and very clean. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We moved to this park from another one close by that had electrical problems. Sites are fairly level gravel. Our pull thru was at least 80 feet long. Close to a restaurant, grocery store, filling stations. WIFI was exceptional. You can stay hooked up and walk to all the above mentioned stores, etc. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent for an overnight, but muddy after heavy rains--sites partially graveled, fairly level. Outstanding customer service and friendliness. Good laundry (especially jumbo washer & dryer). Convenient to okay restaurant and good grocery. Interstate noise drops to almost nothing after dark. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was the first day for the woman in the office, management failed to train her as she didn't seem to know what she was doing. She put our 40' MH in a site where we would have drug getting into then had not been able to level. There were much better sites and since there were about 10 RV's in the park we asked for and got a much better level pull-through site, only problem the electricity didn't work. We were able to plug into the electricity next to us so we didn't have to pull up jacks and move. The cable TV was good, some traffic noise but what do you expect if you want a park right of the interstate! They need to get a few truck loads of gravel as the place was mud. All in all this park is a good place to stay overnight, but needs some care - we got the feeling the place has been left out of the maintenance loop for some time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An overnighter on a Sunday after Labor Day. Office not open. Window sign said an attendant would come to the site to handle payment. After a few hours, late afternoon, no one showed up. Called 800 number and was told "the gal was on her way". She showed up to the office, not the site, after about one and a half hours. She was nice enough once I went to the office to pay. No big deal but just an indication of little concern for the customer. Park is not very level and pull through sites meant for two rigs, end to end, were not level and just eroded dirt wheel ruts on what used to be grass. Lost 30 amp electric twice during the hot afternoon for a few minutes each time. Girl in the office stated electric company was working...on a Sunday afternoon? RVers near us arrived early evening with five dogs, very large to med size, unleashed and running around the area unattended and doing their business as dogs will do. Again, no one from the office to handle it. The RV park is just one part of the "Al's Oasis" "complex". Evidently, it's not an important part. We WILL NOT stay here again as we pass through central South Dakota, I'd rather drive a few more hours to a better park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A good overnight stop in central SD with full hookups, good cable, WIFI, and pool. Those who don't like to hear any highway traffic, want beautiful landscaping or paved road and pads, etc., go elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty nice campground. Pull thrus are good but if you don't like the noise of the interstate you may not like this park. We have a good view of the Missouri River. Sites are pretty level. Store is open late. Office staff very friendly. Cheap laundry. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy off and easy on I90. There are service stations selling both gas and diesel that a big rig can access and a couple eating places - everything you need for an overnight stop. The park was very clean with all gravel roads and pull throughs. I would have rated this place a little lower for a long stay, but it is great for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice stop over for us. However, their internet was available from the office location only - you could get it outside when it was closed. I wish we were there earlier to enjoy the pool - unfortunately, we stopped just for the night. It was cool and breezy - and everything appeared nice and clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big Al must be spending the income elsewhere. He is certainly not spending it on this park. Landscaping is mostly cut weeds. They have planted a few, tiny trees along the freeway. No pavement anywhere. Roads are dusty. Pads are just worn patches of grass. Missouri River is nearby across I-90. Good 50 amp. OK for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sights not flat at all. Beside highway but view of water. Laundry facilities very clean. No receipt was given when they came to collect but they gave us an information sheet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great overnight location! We stopped here on our Yellowstone National Park trip. The restrooms were clean, the laundry facilities were just as clean and neat, also the pool was well taken care of and clean. The pool was a great way for the kids to work off some energy! Staff was friendly and helpful. We are planning on staying over a little longer to explore the area in and around Oacoma, on our return trip to Yellowstone National Park. Overall, my family was very satisfied with the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This spot has some very uneven, unlevel spaces and, although they advertise they are within
walking distance of a restaurant, that is only true if you are a marathon runner. Okay for overnight, but not longer term. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This campground truly was an oasis for us! We had come through bad weather and had stopped at a horrible campground before we found this place. It was clean, had a wonderful laundry area, nice pool and super clean bathrooms. There was a nice restaurant, grocery store, and gas station nearby. The staff was really friendly and helpful, even calling around to help us find a part for our camper. Will definitely go back again!! It is at Oacoma, SD which is right by Chamberlain SD at the Missouri River, a beautiful area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lots of large shade trees. Large grassy playground. Right on the beautiful Missouri River. Very large paved sites. Full use of the resort -- restaurant, pool, tennis court, marina. 1 1/2 mile, paved trail along the river. Completely quiet. Loved this place. However, they need to update/renovate the bathrooms. They're like as expected at state/county parks but not at this "resort." We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty much agree with the previous review of Sept. 2013. Park’s website fails to mention that check in is 4:00 PM. Laundry facilities consist of 1 washer and 1 dryer located in the office, so if the office is closed for lunch or other reasons, no access. We forgot to mention on check-in our AARP membership for a 10% discount and were told afterwards that they could not adjust our rate. Discount has to be applied at check-in and can’t make adjustments after the fact, even though this was only minutes after our initial check in. No Good Sam or Escapees Discounts; AARP only. We lowered our front landing gear on our 5th wheel to the max and still unable to be perfectly level. We stayed for 5 nights and Wi-Fi was nonexistent. We will not be returning. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park rates high on appearance and utilities but, as others have mentioned the back-in driveways are long and well spaced but not very level. The pull-thrus are gravel and close together. The WiFi is excellent and free, the laundry consists of one washer and one drier in the cramped office. It is a very quiet spot with a nice view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was a short drive from Interstate 90 on paved roads. Recommend going through Oacoma rather than through Chamberlain. Going through Oacoma, you’ll pass another RV park that is right along the Interstate. The park is built on a slope so a lot of the sites had a slight complex (two different angles) slope making it difficult to level. The interior roads in the main section were paved except for the patch where the road seems to have washed out. In the area with pull throughs, the roads and sites were gravel. The roads were narrow. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections were along the middle of the site. The sewer pipe connection stuck up higher than the pad surface. There was an outside table. But during our stay there was a strong wind so staying outside wasn’t an option. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites & portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception be sure at ask for one if needed. Not much privacy between the sites as the area is pretty open but there is a lot of distance between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi connection was good. Our Verizon hotspot had good reception, but our cell phone (Net 10 provider) had no reception even though we were right across the Missouri River from Chamberlain. The lights of Chamberlain were nice across the river. There were some designated pet areas with bag dispensers to pick up and dispose of waste. There wasn’t a fenced pet area. There was a hard surface trail to the South of the park between the road and river which was a nice walk. They give you access to the facilities at the nearby resort (indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room). We ate at the restaurant. The menu was limited and a little on the high side but the atmosphere was nice. There wasn’t much else to choose from in the area. We only stayed here one night to go to a nearby attraction. We wouldn’t have stayed if we didn’t want to go to the attraction. We would have continued down the road to find something else a little more suitable. AARP & Good Sam discounts available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, spacious campground. Well maintained facilities with grass, picnic tables, fire rings and good water pressure. While some sites are concrete, most pull-throughs are long, gravel, and are not level. In fact, getting our coach close to level in "the most level gravel site" (#41), was difficult. The good makes the leveling issue minor. This is a riverside campground. Sunrise, sunset ... Awesome! The view at night with city lights reflecting from the water, beautiful. A wonderful paved and cedar lined river walk and nearby hotel/resort and the warm, friendly staff help to make this the travelers' place to stop for the night or even longer. I'm glad we did! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Charming Missouri River sunrises in this clean park. Very long, roomy, paved sites, and lots of grass between. Owners couldn't be friendlier. Very strong Wi-Fi. Older bathrooms, but very clean. As others have mentioned, not enough shade trees; however, we took advantage of the air-conditioned resort and pool next door. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a gem. Right on the banks of the Missouri River - sites are level with plenty of space between each site. All hook ups worked well. Check-in was great, staff were very friendly and helpful providing us with information of where to go and who to see in the area. The campground is part of a resort which we had full access to. We had dinner and a few drinks there. The bar staff were fantastic; restaurant staff not as personable, but the food was good. Weekends seem to be a busy time for the campground as lots of people book in to attend weddings etc. at the resort so you may need to book a spot early. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful location, nice wide spots. We had a spot on the water and had really nice breezes. The only negative was that there were very few mature trees, but I think that is because it is a newer location. The young man who checked us in was very nice and very helpful. We would stay here again and recommend it, We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid the rack rate of $35 for a 30 amp site. Voltage to the trailer was low. Barely 110V. This is on a weekday when the seasonal weekenders were not around. Site itself was far from level - 4" lift on one side was not enough. A look around showed that very few sites are level. WI-FI also, is not available CG wide as implied. Signal was only usable with an external WI-FI dish plugged in. Otherwise, all the good things, as per previous posters. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, very nice view of the Missouri River. The site was fairly level, and the hookups were nicely set-up. Lots of space between sites with a picnic table at each site. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel/resort and the meal was acceptable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed two different times. Once on our trip out to Custer, SD and we liked it so much we spent two nights on our way back. Stayed in spots 10 and 12, both are back in but what a view they gave us of the Missouri River. Beautiful. Grounds are clean. We were able to ride our bicycles. George S. Mickelson trail runs for a short distance in front of the campgrounds and resort. There is a marina next door and as a guest you can use the swimming pool and hot tub at the resort next door. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great views of river, Full hookup in most spots. WiFi weak, Verizon Card Strong 4G. Cable TV, Dog Friendly. Indoor Pool, Spa, Sauna available at Resort. Great Restaurant and Bar/Grill in Resort , Short walk. Some sites hard to level RV. Enjoyed our stay. Golf course close by. Will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park, off the road and on the Missouri River. They have had some issues with wash outs in part of the park, but not bad enough to stay away. Sites are not really level, especially on the south end of park where the pads are gravel. The north end of park has cement pads, still had to use blocks to level. Some shaded sites. Easy off and on I-90. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful location not too far off I-90. We camped right on the river in a tent, enjoying a gorgeous sunset. The owner was friendly and helpful and our family especially enjoyed having the resort privileges: the indoor pool! The only drawback were the bathrooms: decently clean, but your basic cinder-block-state-park type. Very quiet and serene. We'd stay here again as we pass through SD. We camped here in a Tent.
When we checked in, we requested a level site so we could leave our RV on the tow vehicle for our one night stay. We were told the sites are very level. This was not so. We had to disconnect in order to get the RV leveled. Nice quiet location, on the river. The pool and spa are located in the adjacent hotel, which is not overly convenient to RVers, but nicely equipped. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great place! River view, trees, friendly personnel, clean. There is resort attached to the campground where you can go to the bar or eat. They have a spa and pool. We will definitely stay here again. So should you! You won't be disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our stay was after flooding along the river and some of the campsites had washed away. Our site (#11) had the back end washed out along with some exposed pipes. This may be why we did not have water hookup available. Lots of SPACE, SPACE between sites. Playground is spread out over a large grassy area with lots of room for children to run and play in the shade. Resort (and pool) is only a short walk next to the campground but the pool is small. Parking on the river was different than most campgrounds. The wind was VERY strong but quite refreshing after being in warm climates prior to coming here. The 36' A Class rocked off an on almost all evening with wind gusts. Laundry is available in the park office but is closes at 8 PM when staff leaves and doesn't open again until 10 AM when they return. Makes it hard for those just staying one night on their way to another location. Park office isn't readily easy to find but if you enter at the resort driveway, turn right and the campground and office should come into view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is in a beautiful setting right on the Missouri river. If fishing is your thing, it's perfect. It is away from the highway and one of the quietest parks we've stayed in. There is either an agreement with the resort next door (really seems like a regular hotel) or the resort owns the campground. You have full access to the resort's pool, spa and any other amenities. The WI-FI is only available right outside the office or in the business center at the resort. The gravel sites are the only pull through's but they are not level. We were first assigned to a gravel spot but could not come close to level. As the park was almost empty, they let us pick wherever we wanted to stay. We settled on a concrete pad that worked fine. Also, drive very slowly and carefully because there are potholes and broken pavement. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a Sunday night so the park was practically empty. We got a beautiful site overlooking the Missouri River. The staff was friendly and seemed pretty relaxed. We enjoyed using the hotel indoor pool, sauna, and hot tub. You could also enjoy a meal or a drink at the resort and use the business center. Even if the park was full, there is plenty of room between the sites. We liked sitting outside and watching the river as the sun set and rose. There is a great Lakota Museum (donation admission) on the St. Joseph Indian School campus that was worth going to. Chamberlain had a decent grocery store, too. We would recommend this RV park to others and would return ourselves. It is conveniently located for a one-night stop or as a destination if you wanted to take advantage of water activities on the WIDE Missouri. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is right on the Missouri River/Lakes area, and has a great view. Park campers are allowed to use all the amenities at the local resort hotel, which was great!!! Has indoor/outdoor pools, a restaurant, free Wi-Fi, lobby and TV's and a business center. Sites are large, and have full-hookups. Staff was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location on the Missouri River. They offer the indoor pool at the hotel next door and that's a rather new facility. Boat rentals and fishing licenses available at the hotel. The bathrooms were clean but the men's showers tended to run back into the area just outside. Some sites are level but many are not going front to back and make it difficult to use a tripod. We might try the campground across the river next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Absolutely outstanding property. My first impression was not so great, sites were terribly unlevel and situated oddly for view of the beautiful river. It was like they were backwards for a motorhome, perhaps for a fifth wheel with a large window in the rear it would have been great, otherwise they were laid out "backwards". The staff was very friendly and as helpful as they were able. The signage into the campground is non existent so be prepared to drive into the "resort hotel" parking lot. I got the sense that this campground was a work in progress but it really was a delightful place once I got over the issues with leveling and layout. Also the resort amenities are available to campers, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, restaurant and tiki bar. All in all a hidden gem and very relaxing. I would be happy to return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park has extremely spacious sites, most with a great view of the Missouri River. Ours was close to the office/restrooms with lots of green grass and trees and no bugs!! We had a wonderful walleye dinner at the Lodge. Used Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a beautiful campground right on the Missouri River overlooking the bluffs on the far side. Really very nice. Eventually they will have to replace all the camp sites as they are made of asphalt and RV levelers/jacks are punching holes in the sites. Lots of grass and trees and a three mile walking trail. Very friendly with a hotel and marina nearby (part of a complex). Price is a bit high for a campground nowhere near touristy things but most beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cedar Shore Resort is a nice location, far from the noise of I-90. Situated on the shores of the Missouri River, the views are nice and the breezes cooling. Our site was waterfront, with a nice view from inside the RV and from the picnic table provided outside. The woman who checked us in was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. There is a huge amount of green space between the sites - at least 30' or more. Wi-Fi at the sites is dependent on how many rigs are between you and the office. They need to install another router closer to the other end of the park. Many of the sites require some leveling of your RV, but it wasn't a big problem. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance to the campground was confusing. We ended up parking in front of the resort and they told us that the campground was behind us. It was hidden in the back corner. The view of the river was beautiful. This is a nice campground. We used the pool facilities. Pool was cold, but clean. They also had a hot tub. Our water line broke while we were swimming and we came back to a water-filled camper. Our clothes were soaked, but the campground office and laundry facilities were closed since it was after-hours. (11 PM!) We walked across to the resort and the nice manager allowed us to dry all of our soaked clothes in the resort machines. They were very helpful in our time of need! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One qualifier. We saw some pretty scuddy camp sites: dirt/uneven/no view. So as long as you get one like we had, right on the river, with a magnificent view (we had a great site #5), this is one great park. Wonderful managers, nice folks around us, clean, grass (well kept)asphalt pad, fire pit. Just a nice stay. Definitely would go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very pleasant park on the Missouri River. Fairly level sites, some with shade. Access to the amenities at the Motel (e.g., pool, spa) Fantastic sunset (not guaranteed!) We would camp here again. A great spot for those into fishing and boating. It's all right there (including launch). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lovely setting, great value. We took a full service site because our propane fridge is on the fritz and so we need 110 AC. On site store had ice for our Margaritas! We had a beautiful view of the Missouri River. Site size was adequate, and nicely surrounded by greenery. Lots of locals leaving rigs empty at this time of year, so not at all crowded. There were a lot of amenities that we did not take advantage of, like a spa at the resort next door, tennis courts, horseshoes etc We camped here in a Motorhome.
Water pressure was great; electric was fine. We were in site 23 which had nice shade and was fairly level. The park is very nicely kept, and they are expanding it. There are beautiful hills surrounding it along with the view of the river. We saw wild turkey and deer. We explored the hills and took photographs from the tops of them which was the most beautiful site I have seen yet. There was great fishing. The traffic was a bit noisy for as far away from everything it is, but during the evening it was very quiet. I would have given it a 10, but the price was a bit high for what we are used to paying. But, it is worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A "ten," except for the unpaved interior roads. Your camping fee gives you the use of the pool and spa in the hotel associated with the RV park. Wi-Fi at the hotel was usable; it was not available at the campsites. On the other hand, the staff could not have been more accommodating. We put in here unexpectedly after a hitch failure while crossing the Missouri River. The camp people helped us find the town welding expert to do the repairs, and were willing to sign for a package containing replacement parts. Lovely river side scene. Caveat: on weekends, the place fills up with people using ATVs and personal watercraft. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Attractive campground on the shore of Missouri River within walking distance to a restaurant, pool, and other indoor facilities of the adjacent hotel for your use. The only real drawback noted was that some of the sites along the river are not very level at all. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We stayed in this resort overnight on our way to the Black Hills for our fall 2007 SD vacation. The park is easy to find, and very quiet. The spots are level and large enough even for big rigs. Only negative for us was that we reserved over a month in advance, got a confirmation number, as well as a spot number, but when we arrived, we were put in a different "less prime" spot. Since we only overnighted, we did not push the issue, though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice gravel site with some grass and lots of space. Site was very un-level front to back. We had a great view of the river. Very few shade trees in half the park. The other half of the park had paved roads/ sites and some trees and had waterfront sites. Good place to spend a few days. We did not use any of the other facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An excellent park located right on the banks of the Missouri river. Nice lodge that allows campers use of the indoor pool and spa. WIFI available in the hotel. Big lots with plenty of space and privacy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting was nice but keep in mind that only the seasonal sites get sewer hookups. The dump station is on a one way street, on the wrong side, so we couldn't dump. We might stay there again if we could get a site on the river front. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived late, after the office had closed, due to RV trouble. We had called the office to let them know of our late arrival, and they told us which campsite to use. The site wasn't marked very well for spotting at night, but after one circle around, we got there. It was very buggy outside, lots of misquitos. We spent a good amount of time killing them inside the coach. The showers were clean enough, but not nearly as nice as others we used on the trip. We were thankful for them though after a day of travel with no A/C. It is a nice spot if you can get a site on the riverbank. The resort is a bit of a walk. It didn't appear that people do a very good job of cleaning up after their dogs as my husband ended up "stepping in it" in the dark while hooking up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of our favorite campgrounds. Both times we stayed there, requested and received a huge riverfront site with full hookups. We find the staff quite friendly. For kids there is a nice playground, very nice basketball/tennis facilities and access to a good indoor pool at the resort hotel next door. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Some areas of the park were nicer than others- greater space between rigs & more shade. We were placed in an area with no shade and that was pretty tightly packed together. This wasn't much of a problem, as we were only staying overnight. Our main objective after being on the road all day was sleep! We had no neighbors to the left of us, but a rowdy crowd arrived at 8:00 p.m. and took the space to our right. Didn't think much of it at first, until 10:00 came around and the party was still going strong. Loud music, loud talking and laughing, slamming trailer and car doors. These people were in-between their camper and ours by their fire ring. They were actually less than 5 feet from our trailer. The space issue obviously wasn't their fault, but their lack of manners was. They were setting off firecrackers between our two campers- one type illuminated the entire inside of our trailer when it exploded (set these off multiple times). Party finally died out at 2:00 a.m. My biggest problem with this campground is that they make a point of saying they have "full time camp security" on their website, but no such thing exists. We had no way of contacting anyone from the CG for help. No cell or we would have gladly called the police. We were never so happy to leave a CG as we were the next morning! Overpriced, no security, packed in sites make this a campground we will never return to.

We stayed here on our way to the Black Hills area. The setting is spectacular. Our site sat on a bluff right on the Missouri River. The site was very large. The staff was wonderful. The grounds were very well kept. The campground is actually part of a resort that includes a hotel and marina. Campers can use the indoor pool at the hotel. The only downside was that fireworks were allowed (we were there the week before July 4) and, as luck would have it, our next-door neighbor shot off fireworks recklessly for hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
