This is our second time stopping at this park. Very long level pull throughs and open skies for satellite. Very friendly camp hosts. FHUs in all the right places. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tidy park with good access to the interstate. Dusty interior roads and long, pull thru sites with some shade. Friendly hosts provided an escort to site, which was level and with convenient hookups. Park WiFi worked well, and Verizon cell/data was very good. No cable, little OTA, but the pull thru sites had a clear shot to the TV Satellites. Not much in the area, just a clean, quiet place to overnight. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for 1 night both coming & going to South Dakota. Its a small "mom & pop" campground. The hosts, Violetta & John are a great fun, caring couple. Really enjoyed the way the handled our caravan of 8 motorhomes. Our leader called ahead about 10 min before arriving & John met us outside and led us in to our sites, all in the same row one after the other. After we were situated we went to check in. Our pull-thru sites were long enough for our 43-45' rigs & tow vehicles.Its not a "destination" campground but for a nite or two it cant be beat. There aren't really any amenities, but sites were long, grass between gravel sites, beautiful trees (but no low branches to run into) but truly the biggest draw was the hosts. My husband & I were the only ones to stop on our way back (we had to get back to work) and they remembered us! We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overnight stop. Owners very friendly and helpful. Advised that there was a severe weather advisory for the area and made sure we knew where storm shelter was located. Easy on and off interstate. Mainly pull-thru sites, full hookup. Roads (gravel and dirt) in somewhat poor condition due to recent heavy rains, but obvious efforts had been made to improve them. Restrooms clean and well-stocked. Grocery store a few blocks away. Would return. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is year two we have stayed here. The owners are great people and very personable. They will escort you to your site. The sites are super long pull thru sites and many have open air to the sky for sat dishes. AT&T worked great. Whatever you need, just ask them, they will do what they can to help you. The owner is always outside cleaning up and grading each space to keep the gravel level. Sometimes he will have his 13 year old son as a side kick plus the Bichon furbaby alongside. These spaces are super level. You get a picnic table that is either red, white or blue. There is ample grass and room between sites. They have a great fenced in doggie run with human seating. There are beautiful potted plants at each site with enough trees to make shade but not be a problem with sat dish. We usually stay 2-4 days. It is right off the 29 but really quiet and relaxing. No pool or wifi but pleasant enough without it. We will always stay at On Ur Wa when in the area passing through. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

On the other side of the bridge there is a state park where there is a lake that I believe you can fish and swim in. They have a public playground too. There is a Lewis and Clark themed ship right across the freeway bridge. On the corner there is a Dairy Queen, across the street a McDonalds and two new gas stations.

Convenient from Interstate. Staff is pleasant. Easy navigation in campground. Very long site. The utilities were well placed and worked well. The wifi is good. There is no cable. They gave us a site where we could get satillite and we got great ota digital channels. Roads and sites are a mixture of dirt and gravel. It gets really muddy when it rains. There is nothing to do in this area. It is only good for an overnight stay. I would stay again, but only overnight. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small park, about 44 spaces. But they have lots of very long pull-through sites. Everything is FHU. Lots of trees, but they can usually accommodate satellite users. The owners run the park by themselves. There are no frills (like a pool or a spa or a cafe), and most of their business is overnight travelers coming right off of the Interstate. The owners will escort you right to your site on gravel roads that are plenty wide enough for big rigs. There's always a nice breeze at On-Ur-Wa. The gravel sites are plenty long, and the owners not only have a lot of potted plants at the entrance, but smaller ones at each site. She'll walk from site-to-site watering them. This was our second stay at On-Ur-Wa, and we'll be coming back on the way home in August with several other RVs. Highly recommended; easy in, pleasant stay, and easy out. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There's a Dairy Queen right outside the park entrance, and you're only a short walk from a McDonald's, a Subway and a nice little Mexican restaurant. A half hour west is a steak house and a casino. The small town of Onawa (about one mile east) has a cafe and a bar that serves burgers. As I recall from a previous stay here, there's also a golf course just south of the park somewhere.

This is a very nice park with gravel roads, long pull through sites, large mature trees, and very friendly people. It is located close to the interstate highway so it is convenient but there is some highway noise. Fast food is within walking distance and diesel is close.

We stopped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park on our way to Glacier Park. This family owned park is very well maintained. Our reservations were in order upon arrival. We were escorted to our site. Level and easy in-and-out P/T with full hook ups. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great little park off the beaten path. We stopped to camp at the state park but they were full. They told us that year round the locals will pay for a week or two but only be there on weekends. At $14 a night, it is worth it to them to pay for a week so they are guaranteed a spot. There is a KOA, there 2 but older, not as spacious and same price as this place. All 3 CG are within blocks of each other. The owners are AWESOME people! Very welcoming, friendly and informative. Love their dog Harley too! He is a senior Bichon like my two girls are. They escort to your space. Check in with you to make sure all is ok. Have a fenced in off leash pet area. CG was really nice, grass area with little flower pot at front of each site. Mini 4 seater picnic table. Gravel site and gravel roads. Hard pack and pretty level. Well shaded but open enough for our Sat Dish. We would surely visit here again when passing through and I am sure we will be. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Right in front of the property is Dairy Queen, nice treat with the warm nights. McDonalds is near by too. Not a lot there. Blue Lake has a replica Lewis and Clark keelboat. Nice place to stop over for a night or few. We were there 3 nights. Quiet, peaceful, friendly, not over crowded. Right off the freeway but no noise.
