3 RV Parks near Canistota, South Dakota
Aug 2017 - $20.00
A very family friendly campgrounds. We arrived and our space was not yet available as South Dakota parks have checkout time at 4 PM. So we headed down by the swimming area, we could pull the trailer in and have our lunch. It was apparent that many people were enjoying swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities. The park will loan equipment for various games and the boat launch rents out kayaks canoes and paddleboats.
Our site for our travel trailer was spacious and we were able to secure two sites so that our son and his family could set up their tent right next to us. The one concern we had throughout was that the vault toilet locations let out a terrible odor, and could affect us in various times depending which way the wind was blowing. The restroom was basically clean though a little upgrading wouldn't hurt.
We camped in the west campground so that we would be comfortably near the beach for our granddaughters. Each site had picnic table and fire pit and electric hook up. The dump station and water fill station are easily located on your way in or out. There was no Wi-Fi on site, nor did we try over the air television connectivity to know its availability.
Many lovely hiking trails. Wildflowers abound and as to waterfront views. The park is about a half hour outside of Sioux Falls to be able to enjoy the activities available there. There is a grocery store in Hartford and a small efficiency store in the local town. You are definitely out in the country at this site but it is beautifully quiet, allowing for great campfires and night sky pleasure.
The couple who is hosting the campground are totally diligent about keeping it clean. If only some of the campers would be more considerate, especially with cigarette butts and from what I hear water balloons. There are numerous flies at this time a year so if you're going to be here for a long period time, set up your screened in room. - John-Jean

One of the nicest state parks we've stayed in. It's worth the 5 miles off the interstate. Lots are very spacious and secluded. Staff that greeted us at entrance was very helpful and welcoming. A beautiful park with a large lake and lots of trees. Grounds are well maintained. No doubt we would return to this excellent facility. - Globeville

We stayed here one night while enroute to Yellowstone. We arrived on Monday to find the park virtually all to ourselves. The office rangers let us pick a site from their map and we chose one on the lake shore. It was electric only. There is a potable water faucet at the the dump station. The site was beautiful and peaceful. We took nice walks along the shore road. The scenery was magnificent. I would come here again and again. Only complaint is they charged a park entrance fee along with the camping fee. I'm not used to that in state parks back east. - Tidy Boy

Easy On-Off from I-90. Before going any further before you start to swing into the park PLEASE make sure there are no vehicles behind you. We had a car pass us as we were trying to enter the park. Could have been nasty. Cute park, we were in a pull-thru with FHU's in site #32. Great site for a front satellite. Some of the roads were a little tight for a 40' motorhome. The roads are packed dirt, the sites at the same with some rocks, each site has a fire pit plus a picnic table. The ladies in the office were extremely nice and even offered us some apples that were picked from their trees and tomatoes. There is a charge for the showers which we didn't use. They offer a Sunday Celebration with open communion if you so desire. We would stay here again if in the area. - kathiecarlson

We were in site 45 which was spacious with gazebo. This was an overnight stay for us (but would love to stay there longer in the future) and had lots of room to leave truck hooked up. My rate at 4.5 stars is related to by-the-minute charge for use of shower. Easy access from I-90. Staff was friendly. - Mobile Martins

We stopped here on our way out west with 4 grandkids. It is very convenient to I-90. The grandkids liked the pool. Our site was spacious and clean. Great place to stop while traveling I-90. Easy to navigate with a 45' motorhome. - 06Millennium

Water and electric at site and dump is at the back of the shower building. Self-service registration. We drove in and picked a spot. Some gravel, some grass spots. Shower and bathroom was immaculate! Montrose is a cute town - we walked over to the nearby restaurant. Truck traffic going by during the day, but quieted down at night. We shared the whole place with only 3 other campers. We would definitely camp here again. - jenshick

We loved this little park. Montrose is a very small town and this is a very small park - maybe 15 spots. It is right next to the town swimming pool and you can use the pool for free while staying there. There was 50 amp service and adequate room between sites. It is across the street from a sweeping grassy park with lots of trees (there were also trees at the camp sites) where we could throw the ball for the dogs. The night we were there it was full because of a baseball tournament but I suspect usually it is not busy. It's only about 10-15 minutes off the freeway. We had dinner in the small town at CJ's - fun to sit at the bar and chat with the locals. The food was just OK but the white house wine was quite nice! One down side is the dump station - it's just a kind of hole in the ground, not so nice. We would definitely make a point of staying here again. You just can't beat the price either! - twestover

This is an excellent city campground near Interstate 90 in South Dakota. It's a great place for an overnight stop or for a longer stay. During the summer, your camping fee includes access to the city pool which is right next to the campground. All sites have both water and electricity. Our site was a pull-through long enough to accommodate our pick up truck, 32 foot 5th wheel and 18 foot boat with trailer without unhooking. If you are coming in without a reservation, check the board near the pay box before you select a site to see which sites are reserved. - Bobbi1948
