This is a well maintained campground, with helpful staff at check-in. Roads are paved. It was very quiet when we were here so had the pick of sites. Our site was a gravel pull-through and very level.  Big rig access was good. Very quiet with some privacy around our RV, plenty of space for our towed, and no need to unhook if you are here for just one night. Established shade trees, plenty of grass, fire ring and picnic table. We had the most wonderful view over the Missouri river and the bluffs beyond. The bathrooms were large and clean. No laundry. Pet friendly with a lovely walk along the river bank. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are a couple of local food shops, but the choice of places to eat and visit are very poor. We would stay here again, it's a great place for a one night stopover, but that's all. We paid cash for the night we stayed here.  We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This camping ground is on the river, beautiful view, next to a public park, the price we paid was CASH rate, the Wi-Fi speed was good, no problem, the dump station was very tight, not easy to access, if you have a big rig make sure you have a full hookup site, so you don't have to use the dump station, overall this is a nice CG.

We chose this campground for an overnight stay. You have to drive into the town so it is a few miles off the interstate which may be an issue for some overnighters. We had site #25 by the river but were not able to get sewer hookup as they have very few full hookup sites. The sewer dump is very inconveniently located as you have to circle behind the office to access it. The Internet was adequate although it wavered from time to time. The site had an amazing view of the river, which we enjoyed. The bathrooms were large and clean. The owners were not overly enthusiastic but we were checked in quickly and efficiently by a teenager. The roads are paved and the sites gravel. It was quiet at night which we appreciated. We had a nice stay at this campground. We would stay here again. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is located on the Missouri River alongside a park. Great location. Wi-Fi was terrific. Campground was clean and well kept. Although located close to the campground entrance, we had a view of the Missouri River and beautiful bluffs. We stayed here as a stop over to the Black Hills. Would definitely stay here again.

Good Sam rate. The Missouri River is very wide just below this campground, which means lots of watercraft launch from there and things stay busy. Plenty of families on the weekend. Dated but clean bathrooms. No cable, but got a few antenna channels. Shady, picnic table and grill at each site along with pesky flies that drove me indoors. Lewis & Clark camped near here in 1804.

We camped for one night while travelling. This park is located on the Missouri River and is very scenic. We arrived on a Friday and the park looked to be about 35% occupied. It has a nice swimming beach, floating dock, and boat ramp. The nearby town has several antique stores, and the Akta Lakota Museum, which is only 1/2 mile away, was very enjoyable. We'd definitely stay again if passing through the area. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the pretties campgrounds we've stayed in over three months of traveling. However, Big Rigs beware. This is an older campground with many established trees. If you are towing, highly recommend disconnecting toad and exploring the route ahead of pulling in. This is a very doable campground for Big Rigs, but the route you take to your distention should be navigated first. We would definitely stay here again.

Ten plus miles off Interstate, but that did not dampen our rating for this place right on the Missouri River. Spacious, comfortable, plenty of room for walks. Can fish off a small pier. Boat launch nearby. Good for a couple of days stay if you want to relax before going where you're going. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We were passing through and stayed only one night. Lady at the desk was helpful and the site was adequate. This park has a lot to offer. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground sits directly on the banks of the Missouri River. There is a boat ramp available and the park seems to attract a lot of fishermen. Gravel sites and roads. No off-leash area. Rate is with Good Sam's discount. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, looks like it use to be a COE park. Wi-Fi didn't work at our site (#25, 50 amp W&E) and Sprint hotspot (roaming) worked but is slow. Sprint cell works OK, in roaming mode. Our site had trees that blocked our rooftop dish, we could not position the 5W to get a signal. First site we were assigned to had 2 trees right on the edge of the blacktop back in site so we didn't even attempt to get in as the slides would have hit the trees. We were moved to a short pull through site which allowed a great view on the Missouri River. Parked the truck in the grass. Roads & sites are blacktop. Park allows you to wash your rig, no charge. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is the top amenity at this campground, located on the shores of the Missouri river. Our site was right on the river. The utility hookups were positioned so that we were able to enjoy the view from the rear window of our fifth wheel. What a treat to see the sunset at night. The campground has its own boat launch, and the adjacent public park includes a beach. This is a nice, small, clean campground. Only complaint: the WiFi didn’t work. Verizon 3G service was very good. It was very quiet during our mid-week stay. The shower facilities were basic and clean. Rate reflects 10% Good Sam discount. We’d recommend this park for a short or long stay.

This is not a park for big rigs. Numerous sites have only 30 amp and most have big time tree issues. This would be a good park for 5ers and trailers. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a unique campground. There appear to be a few permanent rigs here but they are away from the rest of the sites. The sites are laid out in a very strange pattern and our site was challenging to get in but we managed. Our site only had water/electric, but it was fine for a couple of nights. Thank goodness for 50amp service as it was very hot while we were here. Lots of noisy activity on the river but not at night so it wasn't a problem. We had a nice view of the river and we enjoyed walking around the park. The owner was not very friendly but he seemed to be doing all the work so maybe that was why! We might stay here again if ever in this area. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Good Sam membership. Very nice campground along the banks of the Missouri River. Sites were level and paved and hosts were very friendly. Park was clean with no trash and looked decent. Hosts friendly and helpful. Had difficulty with electric post but able to move to another site. Would stay again if in area. We camped at American Creek Campground in a Motorhome.
