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. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Make sure to visit the Lakota Cultural Museum in Chamberlain. It was very informative. Also for a nice view try Free Roam Park.
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! We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Al's Oasis is only three or four miles down the road, and they have a grocery store, as well as a restaurant. Not sure if there are many other attractions.

I would rate this park a 10 but since we had to move to several different sites to find a level one, I had to reduce my rating. The staff is very friendly. There are shaded sites and open sites for satellite. The view is beautiful as it sits on the Missouri River and it is an extremely quiet park. The wi-fi worked fine. There are gravel sites, grassy sites and a few paved sites. Based on our experience and from what we witnessed around the park, the park's sites are mostly at a slant and they were no where near being level. Short trailers are fine to camp here but I would not recommend it for a big rig. We would stay here again only if work was done on the sites to level them out. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.
Lots of large shade trees. Large grassy playground. Right on the beautiful Missouri River. Very large paved sites. Full use of the resort -- restaurant, pool, tennis court, marina. 1 1/2 mile, paved trail along the river. Completely quiet. Loved this place. However, they need to update/renovate the bathrooms. They're like as expected at state/county parks but not at this "resort." We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.
This park rates high on appearance and utilities but, as others have mentioned the back-in driveways are long and well spaced but not very level. The pull-thrus are gravel and close together. The WiFi is excellent and free, the laundry consists of one washer and one drier in the cramped office. It is a very quiet spot with a nice view. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.
Pretty much agree with the previous review of Sept. 2013. Park’s website fails to mention that check in is 4:00 PM. Laundry facilities consist of 1 washer and 1 dryer located in the office, so if the office is closed for lunch or other reasons, no access. We forgot to mention on check-in our AARP membership for a 10% discount and were told afterwards that they could not adjust our rate. Discount has to be applied at check-in and can’t make adjustments after the fact, even though this was only minutes after our initial check in. No Good Sam or Escapees Discounts; AARP only. We lowered our front landing gear on our 5th wheel to the max and still unable to be perfectly level. We stayed for 5 nights and Wi-Fi was nonexistent. We will not be returning. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice, spacious campground. Well maintained facilities with grass, picnic tables, fire rings and good water pressure. While some sites are concrete, most pull-throughs are long, gravel, and are not level. In fact, getting our coach close to level in "the most level gravel site" (#41), was difficult. The good makes the leveling issue minor. This is a riverside campground. Sunrise, sunset ... Awesome! The view at night with city lights reflecting from the water, beautiful. A wonderful paved and cedar lined river walk and nearby hotel/resort and the warm, friendly staff help to make this the travelers' place to stop for the night or even longer. I'm glad we did! We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.

The park was a short drive from Interstate 90 on paved roads. Recommend going through Oacoma rather than through Chamberlain. Going through Oacoma, you’ll pass another RV park that is right along the Interstate. The park is built on a slope so a lot of the sites had a slight complex (two different angles) slope making it difficult to level. The interior roads in the main section were paved except for the patch where the road seems to have washed out. In the area with pull throughs, the roads and sites were gravel. The roads were narrow. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections were along the middle of the site. The sewer pipe connection stuck up higher than the pad surface. There was an outside table. But during our stay there was a strong wind so staying outside wasn’t an option. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites & portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception be sure at ask for one if needed. Not much privacy between the sites as the area is pretty open but there is a lot of distance between the sites. The park’s Wi-Fi connection was good. Our Verizon hotspot had good reception, but our cell phone (Net 10 provider) had no reception even though we were right across the Missouri River from Chamberlain. The lights of Chamberlain were nice across the river. There were some designated pet areas with bag dispensers to pick up and dispose of waste. There wasn’t a fenced pet area. There was a hard surface trail to the South of the park between the road and river which was a nice walk. They give you access to the facilities at the nearby resort (indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room). We ate at the restaurant. The menu was limited and a little on the high side but the atmosphere was nice. There wasn’t much else to choose from in the area. We only stayed here one night to go to a nearby attraction. We wouldn’t have stayed if we didn’t want to go to the attraction. We would have continued down the road to find something else a little more suitable. AARP & Good Sam discounts available. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.

Charming Missouri River sunrises in this clean park. Very long, roomy, paved sites, and lots of grass between. Owners couldn't be friendlier. Very strong Wi-Fi. Older bathrooms, but very clean. As others have mentioned, not enough shade trees; however, we took advantage of the air-conditioned resort and pool next door. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is a gem. Right on the banks of the Missouri River - sites are level with plenty of space between each site. All hook ups worked well. Check-in was great, staff were very friendly and helpful providing us with information of where to go and who to see in the area. The campground is part of a resort which we had full access to. We had dinner and a few drinks there. The bar staff were fantastic; restaurant staff not as personable, but the food was good. Weekends seem to be a busy time for the campground as lots of people book in to attend weddings etc. at the resort so you may need to book a spot early. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Paid the rack rate of $35 for a 30 amp site. Voltage to the trailer was low. Barely 110V. This is on a weekday when the seasonal weekenders were not around. Site itself was far from level - 4" lift on one side was not enough. A look around showed that very few sites are level. WI-FI also, is not available CG wide as implied. Signal was only usable with an external WI-FI dish plugged in. Otherwise, all the good things, as per previous posters. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful location, nice wide spots. We had a spot on the water and had really nice breezes. The only negative was that there were very few mature trees, but I think that is because it is a newer location. The young man who checked us in was very nice and very helpful. We would stay here again and recommend it, We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, very nice view of the Missouri River. The site was fairly level, and the hookups were nicely set-up. Lots of space between sites with a picnic table at each site. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel/resort and the meal was acceptable. We would stay here again. We camped at Cedar Shore Resort in a Motorhome.
