We are only here to finalize our residency requirements for South Dakota. We would never stay here otherwise and will not in the future. Sites are extremely close together, the grounds are none too clean, we could not connect to water as too far from our site. Close to the interstate, so lots of road noise. Thankfully, the personnel at Americas Mailbox are pleasant and knowledgeable, about the only positive thing I can say about this experience. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is good, easy access. Road noise minimal. Sites were small and very narrow. Roads are well maintained. Utilities and Wi-Fi worked well. Verizon was excellent. It appears that this campground is set up to support the mail forwarding business. Good stop for overnight. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with the last few campers. The staff is very nice. We stayed for a month. Close to Flying J with the cheapest gasoline and easiest RV access. Right off I-90, but not much traffic noise. Not family oriented. No facilities at all. Laundry in town was $3 a load. May not stay here next time we're in Rapid City. And, we use Americas Mailbox as our forwarding service, of which they do a good job. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

I was so disappointed with this facility. Since it is owned and operated by our mail forwarding service, which in turn is owned by a full time RVer we had high expectations. Here are the drawbacks of this location: Industrial area. Thick deep mud (2-4" deep) at edge of site, can't hookup nor dump sewage without wading through the mud. Our carpets were trashed the first day, then I wore slip off shoes and just left them outside after that. Sites are tight side to side, and rigs are parked back to back with little space between. Placement of water, electric, and sewage too far back for a motorhome. I used 30' of water hose to reach standpipe. One stand pipe feeds to two rigs parked back to back, so both rigs end up with poor placement for water hookup. I needed 2 sewage hoses (around 30' total) to reach sewer drop, which stands above ground level over 8" high. A high sewer drop may work for 5th wheels, but is way too high for a air bag equipped motorhome that dumps air bags to level. Wading through the mud to dump sewer is a added problem. Sewer drop should be moved forward to middle of site, and reduced in height to ground level or just above ground level. One upside: good free WiFi if close to building, good further out with WiFi booster which we have and used. Make sure to ask for WiFi code on check-in as we were not informed of availability nor code. I had pre-paid for week, and am sorry I did so. We will not stay here in the future. Rate indicated in my review is winter reduced weekly rate. I would pay more for a local campground with no mud and better hookup layout. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small RV park located behind the America's Mailbox office right off of I-90. We stayed there 3 nights while becoming residents of South Dakota, obtaining driver's licenses and registering our vehicles. The sites were close but adequate and there is grass (or at least green stuff) at each site, which we wanted because we were traveling with 3 dogs. We were in a 39' RV with a tow dolly behind so we stayed in a pull-through site and had plenty of room. The people at America's Mailbox were very friendly and helpful with obtaining our South Dakota residency. Glad we chose them to handle our mailing needs and staying on the premises was very convenient for us. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

Our stay was 8 months after the previous post and there still is no landscaping and no cable TV. Sites are very narrow and without landscaping: when it rained we walked in deep mud. Wi-Fi was excellent. There are no amenities at this location. This is not a destination stop. It is merely here to establish residency in South Dakota. The office staff is very efficient at helping you do that. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small new campground located on the premises of Americas Mailbox, the mail forwarding service for RVers. It is brand new so there's little grass and it's rather plain. It's intended as a service to customers of Americas Mailbox, but anyone can stay there. The rate is the member rate. Cable service is installed but was not operating while we were there. Sites are gravel and level. They are rather close to each other and in one row, RVs are parked rear to rear. Wi-Fi service was good. The location is near a truck stop and the interstate but noise level was low. It's convenient to Rapid City and not far from Mount Rushmore and other attractions. We would stay here again for a short stay when passing through. We would probably give it a higher rating when the landscaping is completed. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

Newer, clean park with no trees and rather narrow sites. There are pull throughs but maneuvering is not the easiest. We stayed here a week but would only recommend for just a stopover before moving on. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.
