First of all, the name is just "Oasis Campground." "Al's Oasis" is a general name for this exit off the freeway. Now for my review. As you are driving along I-90, you will see signs as far back as 100 miles indicating to take exit 260. Ok, so I took exit 260. Then, I saw a sign saying, "Campground, up here then turn a block." So I did, and OOPSIE that was NOT "Oasis Campground," do NOT make that mistake. After you make the exit, turn back east on the PAVED road (not the dirt road) and you will find it. Ok, now that I got here, they were in "winter mode" already where an attendant does not come to you until 5:00 PM. Whatever.... Their brochure indicates that cable has OODLES of channels. Not any more! The owner told me that the cable company is trying to force "converter boxes" and he is fighting it. So, you only get 10 analog channels. The channels were fine on my 15 inch TV, but wouldn't even scan on my 32 inch TV. Wi-Fi worked great! However, there weren't many in the park during my stay. Rest rooms were clean and had LOTS of facilities, not just 1 or 2 for a campground like this. Laundry room was decent, $1.25 to wash, 25 cents for 10 minutes to dry. At these prices, wash ANYTHING you might have just to get caught up. Sites are grassy/ground. Some are sloped, not sure I would want a sloped one. There are some sites that are right near the freeway. Wouldn't want those sites. Spacing between sites is adequate, could be better, but adequate. There is a nice swimming pool, but it was closed when I was there. - DXSMac

Nice campground, well maintained. Our site was level. We stayed one night and would stay again. - thejones357

Great location just off the I90. Huge clean bathrooms, excellent wi-fi but only 12 cable channels. We arrived fairly early so selected our own level gravel site. Plenty of space and grass between sites with tables and fires rings. Walked 200 yards to Al's Oasis stores and restaurant. Everything is there. Discount voucher available for fuel station but we had filled prior to arriving. Stayed 1 night in 38ft motorhome on way to Rapid City and would stay here again. - OzFrosty

We spent 1 night here & were favorably impressed. It is right on the water. Driveways are asphalt surrounded by grass. The sites are mostly shady and, being after Labor Day the park was very quiet. There is access to a paved walking trail along the river. - MoMartens

This campground is on the west bank of the Missouri River. We had planned to stay one day, but after seeing the site, we decided to stay 3 days. We had a beautiful back in site on the river. The full hook ups were excellent and the internet was the fastest I have ever had while camping. I did notice that there are pull thru lots off the river and they appeared to be plenty long and roomy. The only negative I could see was the fact the laundry consisted of one washer and one dryer in the office. - sammy32

We absolutely loved the scenery here! Our site was right along the Missouri River, with the river to the east, both mornings had the sun rising in our window (so very beautiful). The campground is off of the interstate a few miles, so there is no road noise. Quiet time starts at 11:00 pm, and people seemed to adhere to the quiet standards. There is WiFi available, and the couple of trips I made to the office showed a friendly staff.
The only con that I can really mention is that there isn't a beach area with access into the river. This isn't a big deal because you have full access to the swimming pool at the hotel. Not only that, but a five minute drive across the river is a public park with a small beach (but it was a small beach, and the water was too cold).
This is a great camping area and we would definitely come back again! - joshnichols84
