This park is close to I-90 easy on and off. The road leading to it is a gravel somewhat wash board lane but is less than 1/4 mile so no issues if you take is slow. The park itself has many trees but are trimmed well. Rig mounted satellite dishes probably won't work. When we were there we were able to get a signal due to the kindness of the owner to set aside a spot that would probably help but the trees hadn't filled with leaves. If there are no trees people complain there is no shade. If there are trees people complain there is no satellite reception. What is an owner to do?

The park appears to be nothing but dirt with a smattering of gravel on the roads and sites. With rare exception there is grass where there should be and it is apparent the owners are working hard to keep it that way. But after an all night rain the sites and roads were solid. We had visions of mud all over the fender wells. We took it slow when we left and had nothing thrown on the motorhome. We suspected that because we followed another couple out and we could barely see their tire tracks.

We didn't use the facilities so we can't speak about them. If they are as well kept as the rest of the park they will be great.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 40' rig. The park is located about a 1/4 mile off of I-90 in a grove of Cottonwood trees. The owner was quite helpful and pleasant. They definitely cater to local area clientele, and on weekends you will notice it more. Everybody knew everybody here. The water pressure and electric worked fine. Sites were fairly close together, but it was workable. For an overnighter, it was fine. My Verizon phone was 4 bars and our Millenicom MiFi was 4G LTE. We would stay here again.

Our level full hookup site was small in width , the sewer was right next to our picnic table. The water had good pressure and good electric. Had a little road noise from the interstate but not real bad. The sites and road were rock and made for a little dust. Getting to corn palace was easy as was the other attraction. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground, shaded, and close to I-90 with no freeway noise. We were there on a weekend and many families were there. The quiet hours are from 11PM - 8 AM. Unfortunately, some parents allowed their small children to be out riding bikes until after 10 PM. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

A cozy little campground right off I-90. Very friendly owner who offers a lot of amenities in a small space. We didn’t have a chance to try the game room or swimming pool, but both looked nice. Wi-Fi wouldn’t connect, but worked once the router was reset inside the office. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

This campground is nice. It is almost all shaded and site are a nice size. It is convenient to the interstate but not much noise. All the stores and amenities just a mile or two away. It gets busy on the weekends so I would make a reservation if possible. We stayed here three nights and would return again. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice older park. Old KOA.? SHADED sites. Real quiet Labor day eve. Near the interstate but not much road noise. Had a tire problem and the owners recommended a place for repair. Good suggestion; they took good and fair care of us. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

VERY FRIENDLY!!! We were just passing through the area and only stayed for one night, but it was a good experience. It is grassy, and the trees make it very peaceful. It was quiet and the atmosphere was very calm. If you are following your GPS it will take you to EAST Spruce St., when the park is located on WEST Spruce St. I spoke with the owner and he agreed that most GPS systems made this error. So just double check the address once you put it in the GPS. We camped in a fifth wheel, which they didn't have a pull through for, but the man at the office was very nice and offered to help back in the trailer. AT&T worked perfectly. We were placed in the back of the park and the wi-fi still worked great. If we were staying for an extended period of time cable would be nice, but for one night it was well worth not having television. The price we paid for this park was very reasonable for the experience we had. It is roughly 3 miles from the Cabela's and Walmart located at exit 332. I would recommend this lovely little park to anyone for a good experience. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have said, the owner bought the park a couple years back and has been fixing it up. It is all true. The staff is great and the location is wonderful. We stayed as a one night stay and will be back We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground appears to be an old KOA facility. The campground was acquired by new owners 2 years ago and they appear to be working hard to make improvements. The campground is near enough to I90 to be "easy on" and "easy out" but far enough away to not have the road noise be a problem. A big plus is the mature hardwood trees that provide plenty of shade in the summer and give the feel of being out in the woods. The campground has interior gravel roads that are level along with pull through sites for big rigs. The only drawbacks we noted were the dated pool (cracked concrete apron) and bathrooms, which were dimly lit and are not handicap accessible. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

I must whole-heartedly agree with the other, recent reviews. I called to see if they could accommodate a 40' moho. The owner answered the phone and was very courteous and helpful. I reserved a site. Upon arrival, he took me in his golf cart to make sure I was happy with the site. I was able to pull in the pull-through site, without unhooking, with ease. Owner informed me that he has had the park a couple of years and it was run down when he bought it. He has done a great rehab job. Several full-time rigs here, but no junk. My site was shaded. Pull through sites have 30 amp with 50 amp back-ins available at no additional charge. Great, convenient over-night or a great place for extended trip to explore the area. "Bravo" to the owner. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Convenient location near I-90 but far enough away to avoid highway noise. We did hear an occasional train but it wasn't loud or often enough to be disturbing. On a 100+ degree day we were glad to have the shade of mature trees. The host was pleasant and helpful, escorting us to our site and making sure all hookups worked for us. We were just passing through, but would stay here again. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Convenient location, friendly, conscientious owner. Seems to be dedicated to improving the property after purchasing about two years ago. Pool looked nice but we did not use. Owner helped pick site to fit us in best and assisted with parking. Area is suffering through terrible drought so that affected the look of the place, but access road was oiled to control dust. Had 50 amp site which was good for a 108 degree afternoon! Good for a stopover to see the Corn Palace, Cabela's, etc. We camped at Dakota Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
