We found this to be an adequate bare-bones park for an overnight stay that was very reasonably priced. We had a very long and level pull-through. Friendly staff. Large open field for our dog. Free Wi-Fi was strong and fast enough. Easy access from I-90. Recommended. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to interstate. Nice shaded sites and park is well maintained. Great, helpful staff. Bathrooms need renovation. With Passport America you can't do better. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America rate. Stopped here for an overnight that turned into two nights because of bad weather. I almost didn't stop here because the 2013 Good Sam rating was low. Bathrooms/showers are dated but clean. This park under new ownership and they have done a fine job of updating and upgrading the campground. It's easy on/off I-90 but no traffic noise. Sites are level. Owners are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is good/fast. I'd stay her again if in the area. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This could be a great little campground with a little TLC. It is easy on/off I-90 with little traffic noise. There are pull-through and back in sites available although there are issues with trees hanging too low at some of the sites. A little tree trimming would be beneficial. Sites were level and the utilities were adequate. Verizon cell and internet worked well (did not use their WiFi) and we were able to use our rooftop satellite. There are some long term campers. All in all this is good for an overnight stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great place to stay for a few nights to relax (there isn't anything in the general area). The sites are long and wide and most have very nice mature trees. The park is very basic. We would stay here again. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice family owned park.....most sites were pull through and about 90 feet long....perfect for our 62', plus car when outside the trailer. Grass in between sites, and if you have them, room for your slides. Plenty of shade without interfering with the satellite signal. We spent 2 nights here on our way to Sioux Falls, SD....easy off/on from Interstate. Would stay here again. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We needed a nice quiet park for a few days rest and this place was perfect. I would have given it a 10 if the WiFi had worked better. The rate reflects PA discount. Will stay again We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is for Passport America. Long, gravel shady sites. Easy access off I-90. Not a lot of amenities but that's not what we were looking for. We were just looking for a safe, overnight spot. Lady in the office was friendly and we were escorted to our site. We would choose to stay here again on our way out west. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small, friendly, level, grassy, reasonably priced campground located right off route 90 surrounded by corn fields. There is good shade from mature trees. Welcome is a small, cute little town in walking distance of the RV park without a lot of shopping. About 8 miles east, the town of Fairmont offers a Wal-Mart, grocery store, liquor store, health club, mini-mall and pretty much any other product or service one might need. The spaces are wide and views of thecorn fields are pleasant. While we can see route 90, highway noise is not a problem. There is a train but the train whistle did not blow during the night. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. The sites are really wide; no problem putting out slides or awnings and they are grassy, not gravel which is much cooler. Great shade trees which along with the grass make for a very pretty park. Owners very friendly and helpful. Also, the park is nice and quiet. Another camper made a comment about migrant farm workers. We were here at the same time as that motorhome. Just to clear things up they are a large painting company that travel the midwest every year painting barns, fencing and houses. They are well known and eagerly awaited every year. Their sites were very neat, tidy, and they did not create any disturbance. They were in nice 5th wheels. I do not know why the previous poster had a problem with them. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
