7 Parks near Oacoma, South Dakota
Sep 2016 - $37.00
All sites are gravel, close to each other and no patios. There is partial shade at many sites. Most of the sites are reasonably level but that depends on the area in which one is parked. The massive restrooms seemed clean. The negative is that the Park is about 75 yards off the interstate so if one wishes to sleep with the windows open, one may have a challenge having a quiet, peaceful, night. Nonetheless, I would stay here again for an overnight. - kurtk

Easy on and off of freeway, nothing special, had a gravel pull thru site and got satellite. Campground was clean and great for an overnight. - The traveler

This is our first time here in 3 years. I don't know why a recent reviewer made a comment about the park not being part of Al's Oasis. Why is that even relevant to a review?
The park continues to be an adequate stop in the middle of SD right off I-90 (Exit 260). The sites are gravel, not all level, and mostly pull through. As mentioned by others, the cable TV channel selection is now minimal due to cable company greed. Satellite friendly sites are few and far between because of all the trees. The WI-FI worked OK for us since there were not a lot of customers here in late August. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are old, but clean and practical. The pool is the park's best feature on a hot day. The staff I dealt with were friendly. I saw no sign of recycling. - Jerry S

We were disappointed to find that unlike the description on the web site, this park is a below average campground instead of a "resort". Check in was in a small office where we noticed that the single washer/dryer were too dirty to use. We were assigned a pull-thru site that faced uphill and was sloped to the point of being unable to level without raising the rear wheels off of the ground. Sites are dirt with ragged grass and small trees. We watched as two other RVs gave up trying to get level and drove around to find a site they could use. Also frustrating was to see the empty pull-thru sites facing the river that were reasonably level and that sat empty. Cable TV was basic eleven channels and fuzzy analog. WiFi was weak and would not connect. At this nightly rate we expected at least average service and were disappointed. Probably a good spot to stay long-term, as the back-in sites were paved and level, but for the short term there are better options. - Meanderman

We loved the view of the Missouri River from our campsite. Site was nice with concrete pad and level, although we noticed some others were not. Next door is a more traditional resort and campers allowed to use amenities such as indoor pool. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant. There was also an outside Tiki bar that served pub food. There was also a marina onsite and we rented a pontoon boat for the afternoon. - Fitzcat

Overnight stop only. Easy access from/to I-90. Great location right on the Missouri River. First pull through gravel site was on slight hill with no way to get the rig leveled and had to unhook to move because trees at the end of the site were so bad. Moved us to a concrete back-in site that worked well. - RPWAINC

Was supposed to be an overnight stay, but the little downtown looked like it might be fun to explore (it wasn't) so we reserved for 2 nights. Read reviews about "beautiful river view sites" and we were put in a site with views of an old garage full of junk, old trucks' trailers and tractors. Pull throughout do not have sewer and again we were told the few others that had full hookups AND a view were reserved or services were "shut off". Lies, there was a full service site with beautiful views right behind us (everything worked, I checked) and no one was there the morning we left. In fact, the place was deserted. I don't appreciate being lied too or taken advantage of so I can not give this place a good review. Bathrooms are as clean as old worn out bathrooms can be and the view of the river is nice when I walked down there. Unseasonably warm and the flies will eat you and your dog alive! Lots of full time/ seasonal trailers in the perimeter sites. Not coming back. - Grillgirl

This is a nice campground along the banks of the Missouri River. It was nice and quiet and our site was right along the river. We had a water and electric site only, but that worked very good for our 1 night stay. The campground had some full hookups, but they might have all been seasonal. The park itself was not the neatest we ever saw, but being along the river and the view really more than made up for that. We would certainly come back if in the area. - PackerFanRick

Nice park along the River with lots to do for kids. There is even a beach. The roads are paved and the sites are dirt with grass. Some of the turns are tight for a 45 footer. Most of the sites are in the trees and not satellite friendly. They sent us to Site 28 which was not suitable for our size. A trip back to the office cheerfully changed us to Site 25 which fit well. 50 amps no sewer. Great view of the river and surrounding countryside. - Freedom Bus

Old campground with a lot of permanent residents with a new big rig area with pull throughs close to the interstate. Never saw an attendant as we just left our check in an envelope at the office. Easy to get around luckily as we had to drive around a lot to find the big rig area. Gravel roads and gravel pads. Good for a brief stopover. - Bob & Jo

Great campground for an overnight stop. The sites were level and easy pull thru, with ample room. We did not see any staff, but the campground was well maintained, near I-90 with gas close. - Rshreve

This campground was a great stop over along the I-90 highway. We could easily pull into a pull-thru site and spend the night without having to unhook the fifth-wheel. The showers and restrooms were clean and impressive, it appears they might have been recently overhauled. We never saw anyone from the office staff as the office was never open; we were there during the week in the off-season. There are a lot of seasonal sites at this campground, I am not sure how many are open for transit camping. - JasonW

Large, level pull thru sites, adequate, grassy space between sites. Below dam, very pleasant. Remote. There is a small grocery in Fort Thompson which is part of an Indian Reservation, also a casino if that suits you. Gotta love the COE. - abqnm

Great inexpensive facility. Beautiful views of Missouri river. Spacious sites. Only about one-third occupied. Nice dump station. Nice wind screen at each site. - DickeyG

Very nice, large COE campground just below the Big Bend Dam, along the left tailrace (Dam Outflow). Excellent fishing here. Fish cleaning stations provided, which stayed busy as most people were catching lots of fish!
Big Bend is a fairly large dam on the Missouri River. Lakes both above and below dam were very large offering the full range of boating activities. Dump station provided, no sewer connections. Water and Electric at site. Sites were large and had fire ring and picnic table. Excellent place to camp when crossing South Dakota. Small Indian casino and convenience store nearby in Fort Thompson on the Indian reservation. - Stax

A decent overnight site. I pulled into a level site that was easy to get in and out of - pull through. No terrific amenities. Since there was no one to take my registration, I filled in the form and dropped it in the provided slot. That also meant there was no way to find out the password for the wifi, which appeared to have a very strong signal. In fairness, I didn't try calling the phone number posted, as it wasn't that important.
If you're looking for a place to stop for an overnight, this works well at a reasonable cost. I avoid the places that the big rigs favor because I don't need 50 amp service for air conditioning and don't care to subsidize them by paying 40+ dollars a night. I like small places like this - electricity, sewer and water at a reasonable cost. They even have a "dry lot" price of $11 if all you need is a place to stop for the night. I'll probably chose that option next time. I'll be happy to stay here again.
For the big rig folks, it looks quite adequate to handle super big outfits. - Corno1

OK for an overnight stop. Sites are very narrow; got our slides out and that was about it. No room for anything else outside. Luckily there were only two of us in the pull throughs, and we were able to pick our own site. This is a take an envelope, mark your site number and put your money in it. I would hate to be here if another rig was on either side of us. Rest rooms and showers were clean. Easy on and off from the freeway. Would only stay here again if absolutely necessary. - cccnnnsss

E/W/S hook-ups, some are 50amps (4). Cable TV at some sites, not all. Over-night only. Showers and restrooms need a lot of attention, we did not use. We stayed 1 night in a 38 footer. Easy on-off interstate. No more mini-mart at this location ?? - wrready2

This KOA is good for what it was. A place off I-90 to spend a quick night in a pull through with full hookups to dump the tanks and get a very early start the next morning. The sites were dirt and mostly level (one block needed under left side tires) and had a dual sewer hookup (mid-rig and back bumper for wherever your's is located.) Each site had a metal picnic table. Since we we got there late and planned to leave early we didn't notice if a fire ring was available.
The campground was less than half full and they stuck us between a large Class C and a VERY large Class A. It annoys me when they do this in an empty campground, but, I suppose they do it for easy maintenance. Power worked without problem, water had good pressure.
Plenty of "grassy" areas to walk our two small dogs but they both ended with several burrs in on their legs that required cutting out later. I say "grassy" because it's mostly weeds in dried out dirt. That said, the campground was very clean and the folks who checked us in were VERY friendly.
It was very windy during our stay but the documents provided at check-in even say "YES, IT'S THIS WINDY ALL THE TIME!"
A little more expensive than several other KOA's we stayed in on our trip but a nice quiet place to spend the night. Overall, we were happy with our stay. - PilotJeff

This is an older KOA just off I-90. Access is good. Interior roads and pads are dirt. There are some small trees around RV sites and some larger trees by some tent sites. There are places to walk the dogs, but no off leash area. And, there are burrs that will get in your dog's feet. They admit it is always windy here, can get dusty. There are few campgrounds in mid SD, so this is a place to stay overnight, but not longer. Nothing in this town. Staff was friendly. - okdiver

This is a small KOA located very conveniently to I-90 in Kennebec, SD. The park has a very friendly staff and showed me a couple of "short cuts" in getting a big rig into a big rig site. The roads are a bit narrow but accommodated a 45 foot coach towing. The CG has a "Chuckwagon" restaurant, albeit we didn't use it. We would definitely stop here again if in the area. - Stealth01
