Super nice owner! They have just expanded to a "lower lot" and more than doubled their size, so it's a work in progress. The view is what it's all about! Wow! It overlooks the whole city and they have created a wonderful little fire pit area area that they bring lots of firewood and build an nice fire for you to sit around and enjoy it by. We even had a "blood moon" one night. The WiFi is fantastic too, enough to do streaming if you want, explained the owner! Once the trees grow up, it's really gong to be super nice. They even built a storm shelter, they have really "thought of everything" here. We camped at River View RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park has just expanded, but we stayed in the smaller, older section on July 4. Nice view of fireworks. The staff was very friendly. We would highly recommend this park. We camped at River View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is not the same campground as it was a year ago. 36 new rv sites have been added downhill from the original sites. 23 tent sites are going in right now,some will have electrical service. This part of the park is so new that the asphalt roads and pads will be done next week. There is also a brand new office/restrooms/showers/laundry building with several vending machines. Several sites will even have 100 amp service as well as the standard 30 & 50 amp service. Small trees have been planted and artificial turf will be installed between the sites. A doggy park,playground,sand volleyball and basketball hoops are also in the works. The premium sites cost a little more but the views are spectacular. The owners are very friendly and so proud of their expansion efforts we were given a personal tour of the park and told of their future plans. It will be interesting to return here in a few years to see how it progressed. We didn't give this park higher marks only because it wasn't finished,had it been,it would rate a 10. We camped at River View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

When arriving here drive up to the top of the hill and continue until pavement ends. About 200 feet after pavement ends is the entrance to River View RV Park, will be on the right. Overall a good place to stay. One of the few campgrounds in the area with FHUs. Some sites have very good views of Pierre and the Missouri river. Site 18 has the best view. There are a total of 22 sites here. All sites are pull-thru. That is until there are over 11 RVs in the campground. Then each site becomes two sites. One RV must pull very far forward and another RV is backed in directly behind it. There is no grass between sites and sites are very close together. We parked our car within two feet of our RV door with the door open. All sites have young shade trees between them. Power connections are different. Because of fire regulations there are not any fire rings. There is one communal fire ring located adjacent to the existing campground. Owner was expecting a near full campground while we were here. Our power and water (60 psi) connections were actually in the next site next to us. We parked forward enough that we needed a total of 30 feet of sewer line. Campground has free WiFi with very low transfer rates. 0.37 Mbps download and 0.02 Mbps Upload speeds. We used our Verizon data with great speeds of 23.11 Mbps download and 18.53 Mbps Upload. Now for the good news. The owners are nearing the completion of 40 additional sites located just below the current campground. All sites will be pull-thru and 40 feet by 18 feet. Each site will be grave and an artificial turf. The new Office/group area/bath house (pay showers)/storm shelter is nearing completion as is the final land fill of the new site area. The will also be ten tent sites and a large picnic pavilion. The owners are also planning some 100 amp sites for the newer all electric motorhomes. Once the new section is completed all existing sites will cease to used as double sites. Rates will remain the same: $30 per night or $500 per month including utilities. Completion could be later this year or early next year. These newer sites should have much better views than the existing sites. We camped at River View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to tour the Capital building or the Oahe Dam you must call at 48 hours in advance. The Capital building tour was interesting as well as the memorials on the lake next to the east side of the Capital building.

Campground is on top of hill with very beautiful views of Pierre. Just keep driving and campground on the right. Owners are very friendly and helpful. No dog park but field to walk dog. No bathrooms, showers, or laundry. New sites and facilities are under construction to be open soon. No trouble with our satellite. Site 18 has the best view in the campground. We camped at River View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Walmart is 5 miles. Few restaurants and very little shopping. Pierre is 3 miles and a pretty capital.

Small basic park. Hookups are placed oddly; long reach for sewer but park provided a sewer hose that worked. Water pressure very high; need a regulator. Great views of the river and Pierre. WiFi worked fine. Few over the air channels but digital channels came in well. Analog not so good. Back-in sites are a little difficult to get into. This is a "work in progress" but owners are helpful and in process of expanding. Being on a hill, when the wind is blowing out of the North, it really blows. Would stay here again.

The park is not what the photos show. It is a graveled lot with about 18 spaces and a few short trees. It does have a great view of the Missouri River. Hookups are not spaced correctly and are very close together. All spaces do not face the river. You just get a side view unless you are parked in the last spaces to the east. Owner is helpful but new to the industry. He does answer his phone. He is planning an expansion.

The park is up a winding hillside but was not a problem. This affords the views. Very basic amenities. WiFi was good until thunder lightning storm took it out. We would stay here again as it met our needs. We camped at River View RV Park in a Motorhome.
