If it weren't for the mail forwarding service and changing license and registration on our vehicles, we wouldn't stay here. It's pretty bad. Two rigs in each pull through, tail to tail. You need to be within 2-3' of each other in order to fit rigs and vehicles. You have to park your truck sideways in front of your rig to fit. Side to side spacing is just as bad. Forget out extending awnings, it's that tight. Two rigs share the water hookup. No picnic tables. The "new" camp sites out back are still not done. We heard the same story a year ago about it being caught up in litigation. Some of the staff here are great, some are not. They really need to rethink the campground aspect of their operation. People complain about the facilities a lot. It is the cheapest FHU in town though. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much has changed here since the last review. The addition to the park still is nowhere close to being completed. It doesn't look like it was well planned out as it looks like every other water hook up is on the door side right out the front door of most rigs. The operational sites are cramped and ours didn't really even have room to do anything outside. The "grassy" area was really weeds with big rocks that just get in the way. The utilities all worked well. Verizon and AT&T service worked well. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have noted, there is nothing fancy about this place. We stayed here because it was cheaper than other options in order to meet residency requirements for a particular permit. Price reflects weekly rate, one week at high season and one week at the lower winter season. This is our residence address, and the folks in the office have helped us register our vehicles and are as nice and helpful as can be. The campground is just parking spaces with some hookups, and only the hardiest weeds growing where it's not gravel or pavement. Hopefully it will improve once construction can resume - a bathhouse would be a nice addition, since not all the spaces have full hookups. We were fortunate that we got one and didn't have to move like they told us we would when we checked in. Close to the freeway, it could be noisy when trucks were using jake brakes to slow down for the exit. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Skip the truck stop restaurant next door, it's awful - especially the dinner buffet. Try Colonial House in Rapid City, fresh-made breads, pastries, pies. Very good food and reasonable prices. For a special meal, the Dakotah Steakhouse across the freeway is amazing.

As noted most campers are here to renew a driver license or register vehicle. Rates very reasonable for the area, but sites extremely close and some share water &/or elec. Rv's packed back to back in some areas. The owner is a full-time rver..and I doubt he would stay in a campground like this. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is primarily for members of the Americas Mailbox mail forwarding service. Many are here to change their residency to South Dakota. That's why we stayed. For that purpose this campground is OK. It is spartan and a bit tight. Few amenities. There is a larger section behind this one that is under construction. I spoke with the general manager and he confirmed they have had some issues with some of the contractors which caused construction to stop. They are close to having that resolved. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

Arrived last night ... total disappointment ... we are using their "Mailbox" service which is a good one, so we thought we would support their campground ... NOT a good idea! We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because we needed to get our licenses and car registered which has to date taken almost 4 weeks because of paperwork but not Americas Mailboxes fault. We were originally put in space 18 with full hook up ($32.) but then a few days later we told we had to move to an electric only site ($25.). After that we were asked to move two more times so it seems there are more permanent RVers than Mailbox service customers or outsiders. They have what appears to be more spaces going in on another piece of land behind theirs but no one was out there doing any work all the time we were there, so I am assuming something or someone has halted the job. Either way, very very inconvenient, yet our emails from them are always showing their signature lines to say Don't forget, we have RV parking now and cheapest around. May be cheapest (though 5 mins to Piedmont is cheaper) but being cheaper I guess means all the permanents have moved in. There is barely any room between the full hook up sites at all. No trees, no shade. Weeds, no grass between spaces. Was very disappointed. The front desk people inside are VERY VERY HELPFUL. As well as the other Americas Mailbox employees for Americas Mailbox side of the business. But I am sorry to say that the RV park is poorly run, disorganized and not pleasant a stay at all. Just to note, site 18 had full hookup, site 5 was electric only but they do have a dump and water fill station but when you dump or fill up, you are blocking the road to get around sites. In the future I would only stay here if I had no other choice and it was only for one to two nights. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

Water, sewer, and wifi not readily available. The Flying J up the hill was looking like a better choice for a noisy, interstate overnight stop. Lots were very close with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel and dirt. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

One of only two South Dakota mail forwarding companies that I found with virtual mailbox and mail forwarding service. What other company would the owners give their personal cell numbers to their customers? Great friendly customer service! The RV park is under construction and should be a big improvement when done. The current RV park is a place to park in a convenient location to the Rapid City area. The park is nothing fancy, but that's why you have your RV isn't it? Considering most folks that I ran into during our stay were just like us, passing through to get drivers licenses and vehicles registered, it was just what we needed. Now on to the Hills and the great life part. I may upgrade to five stars when the RV park construction is finished. We camped at Americas Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is on service road along I-90 next to Flying J. Very convenient to shopping, resturants and sightseeing. Park has new construction in progress to add many more RV sites, community building and cabins. Office staff is very helpful and friendly. Site was a back-in, but suited our needs for 40 ft. motorhome. All utilities worked well. Wi-fi was par, verizon excellent. Stayed here to renew our SD drivers license. Good value for money spent and will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

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.
