This park has 4 rows of 8 or 9 gravel, pull sites. The first 4 or 5 in each row are FHU - the rest are W&E. As has been noted, you fill out check in forms at the laundry/bathhouse building and deposit an envelope with your cash or check in a box. There is a number to call if you need assistance. Our rate was PPA for a FHU, 30 Amp site. The utilities are spaced awkwardly at some sites. If possible, check these before selecting a site so you know you can reach the WES. The sites are quite long and the gravel pads are about 12' wide and to be appear fairly level. There is 10+' of grass/weeds separating the pads. There are small trees at most sites but the pads are situated so that the front of your RV is facing southwest. Thus, most rooftop satellites will work. There is no cable TV and I did not try the antenna. The internet connection worked well for us - even after sunset. The main amenity is a decent size pool. There is no recycling that I could see. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice pool, wifi not good, nice easy pull thru close to interstate but not much noise. Not good privacy in bathroom area. Nice owners, we would stay again. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The good: Close to interstate and only $20 with Passport America.

The bad: Although we felt safe, the park is kind of trashy looking with many permanent trailers. There is a pool, but it was overrun by families and kids that live here, so not a place to relax after a long day of traveling. The biggest problem was the 50 amp power pedestal. The readings in our coach showed a large voltage imbalance between the 2 lines. We mention it in this review since it can be an indication of an open neutral or bad wiring, so just be aware of the potential for problems.

Despite the low price, we would not stay here again. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

A good overnight stop. Sites are all pullthru and level. Self registering by putting money or check in a locked box. Clean 24hour laundry but only 2 washers and 2 dryers. $1.50 wash. $1 dry. A nothing special campground that has numerous permanent residents. A small clean pool. Owner is very friendly. I did not use but I checked out the bathroom/shower house. Smelled terrible. Dirty. Very little privacy at both the toilets and showers. No doors only plastic curtains. I would stop here again if I was passing thru. I was in a motorhome.

Close to the interstate with easy access in and out. And not that much road noise. A good stopover if your self contained.

We recently stayed 2 nights on a weekend. All the sites are gravel with grass between sites, all pull thrus with either 30 or 50 amp and full hook ups. Each site has a tree that provides some shade. Lots of space between sites. Internal roads were easy to navigate. It's right off the interstate but noise was minimal. Self check-in is in the laundry room next to the pool. We paid the Passport America rate of $20 per night, then picked our site. They aren't assigned. The laundry room looked clean, the bathhouse did not. We didnt use the facilities. It was a hot weekend, the park was packed and so was the pool. There are a few permanent rigs in one row but nothing unsightly. Free WiFi but weak the further away you are from the laundry room. No playground, no off leash dog park, no cable tv. It's a good place to stop for a day or two. Very convenient to interstate. We'd stay here again. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Spent 3 nights here in a nice long, level, gravel / dirt, 50 amp full hookup pull-through site. The WiFi was mostly good during the entire stay, did get a bit slow at times in the early PM. The laundry room was acceptable, two large washing machines for $1.50 and two dryers for $1.00. Interior roads are gravel and a bit dusty, but not real bad at slower speeds. Just a yahoo in a pickup now and then blasting through raising dust. The self-check-in has a daily rate special of $25 posted. The rate sheet has been there for a long time. So they do game the system for Passport America a bit. Only 4 OTA stations, one being NBC. We would stay again if passing through. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

As posted before, Plankinton has several bars. The Plank Inn had a good Happy Hour between 5 and 6. It is two for one which you do not see very often. They make a real good burger that is big enough for two. Also, I ordered the 'snack' portion of chicken and it was more than I could eat. Two large white breasts, a huge leg and garlic bread.

Great overnight spot with Passport America discount. Full hookups, long pull throughs, and 50 amp for only $20. Easy on and off the freeway. Self check in with laundry facility and ice for sale. Felt very safe here despite it being very utilitarian. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We got here on a Saturday. One of the owners, came to the self check while we were checking in and said "the bathroom has no hot water in the men's so we are having the women's be uni-sex. Lock the door but be certain it is locked as it either locks too well or doesn't lock!" The bathroom was beyond gross. Bug and slime. Besides the bathrooms the check-in/laundry was filthy. The park has a couple really run down cabins and looks like it is mainly used for a hunting camp. The freezer and ice machine were covered in dirt and rust. Besides those details, the sites were level, water worked, power was good and if you did not need the facilities, but my spouse is 100% disabled and the facilities were needed. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The small town north of park, Plankinton, has a small grocery, five bars, motel, drive-in...Closest Wal-Mart is 21 miles in Mitchell which is a great place for tourists especially the Corn Palace, Dakota Discovery Museum, McGovern Museum, Prehistoric Indian Village and yes Cabelas

Easy in and out off the interstate with minimal highway noise. Paid cash by leaving money in the office/laundry area in a provided envelope. Flat grassy site. Good Verizon coverage. Good satellite. Will stay there again. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We had calculated our trip heading back west and Hill's RV Campground fit our driving distance for the day and the reviews posted indicated it was acceptable. We paid $20 using the Passport America rate. There actually was a very nice lady in the check-in building when we arrived, otherwise it would be self check-in. This location is indeed out in the sticks as city folks like myself would say...but it was a really on/off from I-90 and a nice break at $20 from the much more expensive KOA's and Yogi Bear's we passed. When all you need is a nights sleep, why pay $50. We cannot attest to the cleanliness of rest rooms or laundry, as we did not use. There is a pool, but it has been covered for the season. The site we chose was flat out level, a rare commodity. The site was a mixture of gravel, dirt, plants...but it was solid for leveling jacks. Power was good. We have our own Verizon wifi, and signal was strong. Also received satellite signal without issue. Would definitely stay here again if passing through the area and needing a safe place to crash for the night!! We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When you exit Interstate 90, the campground is right across the street from the gas station. Follow the signage for entry road...the GPS wants to take you further down the road to the address, but the actual entry road is closer to the freeway exit than the GPS would tell you. Just look for the Hill's RV Campground sign and follow it.

Perfect place to stay 1 or 2 nights! Right off highway but far enough to limit noise. Very long, pull through sites with 50 amp full hook up. Small trees and grass that is nicely trimmed. Self-check in (cash or check only) on the honor system. With Passport America only paid $20.00. If you use the pool, costs you $3.00 more. Could only get 2 channels with antenna but for one night doesn't matter. I would think satellite would work fine but didn't try. This park was better than the KOA the night before. If there were more parks like this, KOAs would be out of business. Came in after and during heavy rain, and there were fewer puddles than at the previous KOA. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairly desolate park in the middle of nowhere. Mininal OK if you're just passing thru and NEED an overnight stop. OK with Passport America discount, but otherwise not. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This "campground" was only good for the electric, sewer & water. The bathrooms had shower curtain"doors" in the stalls and they weren't clean. The wifi advertised only worked if you went outside of the upstairs window at the main house, so don't plan to using it. The sites were level and gravel but the flies were horrible. We were able to get satellite and our ATT hotspot worked fine. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.

As I was checking for places to stay on our way back east on I-90 in SD, I noticed that there was no review for this park from me when we stayed here back in July. Either I forgot or it got lost in the RVPR's review maze. So, since there was no park handout, this is what I remember. The rate is PPA. We had had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through that was satellite friendly. There is no cable TV, but many sites are satellite friendly. I do not think that I had any problems with their 802.11 network. Unlike some other reviewers, there was somebody there to check us in when we got there. She just happened to be in the bathhouse/laundry building where you would otherwise do a self check in. I think most sites were to be FHU, pull-through on gravel. The main amenity is the pool which we were able to enjoy. The park was fairly full with some extended stay customers. The bath facilities and laundry were older, but clean. You are right on the interstate edge of town and can walk less than a mile down main street. It is just some bars, eateries, and local businesses, but sort of interesting. This is a good park for an overnight stop on I-90. We camped at Hill's RV Campground in a Motorhome.
