Sites were extremely close to each other. Lots of highway noise, which is to be expected, but easy on and off. Sites were extremely close and dirt, but there was grass for walking the dogs. Fine for an overnight stop, but not longer. We would stay again for the convenience. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I was led to believe from the Al's Oasis website that this was part of that operation, since there was a link on that site to Oasis RV park. As far as I can tell, that is not true. Park is only average - sparse gravel roads and sites, many not level. Wifi non-existent. Cable didn't work. Sewer hookup uphill from RV. Much traffic noise from I-90. We were disappointed. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is ok for an overnight stay while passing through on I-90. It is right off the interstate so access is good but interstate road noise is constant. Sites are gravel/dirt and more or less level. The Wi-Fi worked well. Would overnight here again if passing through but would look elsewhere for anything more than a day. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are designed for two units, one forward facing, one rear facing. Not a problem if the park's not full, but you could wake up in the morning and have someone staring in your rear window. Park is close to interstate so road noise is a concern. Have earplugs if you're a light sleeper. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fine for a one-night stop right off I-90. For overnighters, they pack them in tightly. We were on Site 20 and the sewer for the site next to us was literally 4 feet from our front door. Luckily there was no one in that site. We thought $37 for full hookups including cable was a good value. There is a nice swimming pool at the campground. We didn't notice any noise from the interstate even though it was visible from the campground. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrived mid afternoon office closed. Window direction said pick a site and the office would open at 8am and someone would come around to collect. There were registration slips and envelopes. We left a check for the posted amount. Sites are a mixed bag from good to unusable except for maybe a tent trailer. Utilities were fine. A new maintenance employee did meet us an pointed out the number to call if we had a problem. Park is next to I-90 so expect some noise. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Al's Oasis includes a grocery store, motel, fuel, and restaurant. The restaurant is good, especially breakfast, bacon eggs pots and toast for 5 bucks and the coffee is five cents. The grocery is a tad pricey but convenient.

Towed to this park after a mishap on the road. Cable tv, good wifi. Auto repair and shopping in walking distance. Good park, might have rated a little higher if not right on I-90. Constant highway noise. In my opinion, priced high for what you get. Would not stay again due to noise, but good for one night. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is right off of I-90 has a bit of road noise. Gravel sites with lots of space between sites. Park has a lot of nice trees and well maintained with a nice view of the Missouri River. The Old West Trading Post is close by and was interesting to see. The CG offers a gas/diesel coupon for 5 cents at a nearby station. We used it for just an overnight stay but would stay there again.

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. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.

Second time we stayed here this year. Just use it as an overnight stop. It's easy on easy off I-90, has a nearby diesel station, restaurant and grocery store. Gravel sites a little mucky from rain this time, but no problem getting level. Cable only offers 5 stations but fine for overnight stay otherwise you can use your satellite. Wifi was fair. Stayed here in a 40' motorhome w/tow; did not disconnect. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.

It would have been better if the other guests had made any attempt to control their children. They thought it was amusing to run through my site and get my dog all wound up, even though I asked them not to. It wasn't very nice to have a branch slap me in the face when I opened my door either. Other than that, everything worked fine, my site was level, and it was okay for one night. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.
