Beautiful park. Interior roads and sites are gravel but are very well maintained. No potholes! Our site was very long and level. Wifi was very good. We did notice a sewer smell in the morning. We would definitely return if coming through this area again. - dickens

Another very nice, quiet campground in SD. Clean, level gravel sites. Sites were long and easily fit the motorhome and tow. Ours had a 2-picnic table gazebo with the wifi antenna on the roof - great internet. Lots of nice shade, grass and landscaping throughout the campground. 35 min west of Sioux Falls but worth the travel. - EVO_Bob

The Good: Nice people, well kept campground just far enough that the freeway noise is not bad but the road out front is busy. The Bad: The pool was pretty dirty. Not sure what was up with it but I did not want to swim in it. The kids went and they survived so that's good. The smell, not sure if its the farm fields all around or the waste water pond at the back of the property but I smelled sewer quite a bit. Fix those two things and the place is a 8. - Campingwi

This is another one of those great little town parks that people seldom use. Signage to find the park could be better & sites could use some levelling attention but overall for the money very good & well worth the few mile drive away from the interstate for the quiet. - Veebyes

The name of this park is Pioneer Park. It's on the outskirts of town. Use the city website to get directions to the park. Roads are good which ever way your GPS takes you. The sites are fairly level. The access to some are kind of funky... like having to drive over the grass to access some but they really don't mind. We really enjoyed being here. I like the feel of the town. It seemed that the whole town turned out for a baseball game. It was noisy until the game was done then the town quieted right down. - MT RVers

Nice off-season visit in mid-October. Only 3 campers in our loop (North). Very quiet for a family-oriented campground. - fox1621

A very family friendly campgrounds. We arrived and our space was not yet available as South Dakota parks have checkout time at 4 PM. So we headed down by the swimming area, we could pull the trailer in and have our lunch. It was apparent that many people were enjoying swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities. The park will loan equipment for various games and the boat launch rents out kayaks canoes and paddleboats.
Our site for our travel trailer was spacious and we were able to secure two sites so that our son and his family could set up their tent right next to us. The one concern we had throughout was that the vault toilet locations let out a terrible odor, and could affect us in various times depending which way the wind was blowing. The restroom was basically clean though a little upgrading wouldn't hurt.
We camped in the west campground so that we would be comfortably near the beach for our granddaughters. Each site had picnic table and fire pit and electric hook up. The dump station and water fill station are easily located on your way in or out. There was no Wi-Fi on site, nor did we try over the air television connectivity to know its availability.
Many lovely hiking trails. Wildflowers abound and as to waterfront views. The park is about a half hour outside of Sioux Falls to be able to enjoy the activities available there. There is a grocery store in Hartford and a small efficiency store in the local town. You are definitely out in the country at this site but it is beautifully quiet, allowing for great campfires and night sky pleasure.
The couple who is hosting the campground are totally diligent about keeping it clean. If only some of the campers would be more considerate, especially with cigarette butts and from what I hear water balloons. There are numerous flies at this time a year so if you're going to be here for a long period time, set up your screened in room. - John-Jean

One of the nicest state parks we've stayed in. It's worth the 5 miles off the interstate. Lots are very spacious and secluded. Staff that greeted us at entrance was very helpful and welcoming. A beautiful park with a large lake and lots of trees. Grounds are well maintained. No doubt we would return to this excellent facility. - Globeville

This is a lovely state park located on Lake Herman. We stayed in the upper loop which is fairly wide open. The lower loop his heavily treed and some of those trees are way to low and need a trimming. We stayed on site 56 which was 50 amp. Our site was not level front to back and side to side. The side to side leveling issue could be taken care of with a little grading of the site. We had good Verizon phone and internet service and since our site was so wide open, we were able to use our roof top satellite. Our 5th wheel is 37 ft and it would have been challenging to access the dump station and we did not attempt it. The dual lane dump station/fresh water fill is immediately after a right hand turn and we felt that we just did not enough swing room. a small rig would not face this difficulty.You also have to buy a South Dakota annual park pass for $30 which I did not include in the nightly cost of camping. We would stay here again. - roadking

South Dakota SP are wonderful, well kept parks usually on water like this one. Remember that there is an entrance fee on top of the camping fee. If you plan on staying more than 5 nights in any of SD parks you would do well to buy their pass for $30. Very busy on week ends during the summer, but almost always available during the week. The sites are nice and long, well spaced and have been kept quite level. There are some very close trees in the lower loop that made it a little hair raising to get around. Bathrooms are nice and well cleaned. Verizon signal is just OK. - rhianna

A very nice state park at a very reasonable rate. Sites have 30 amp electric only, no sewer or water hook up. A dump station is available with potable water. Most sites have a view of the lake, or the "pond" as it is refered to. The biggest drawback for us was the mosquito population made it hard to hang out outdoors. It sold out on the weekends, and was nearly deserted during the week. At a different time of year this park would be a 10. - SargeW

This campground is within the Historic Prairie Village outside Madison. We stayed one night in a grassy, fairly level 50 amp electric only site that functioned as a pull-thru because no one else was there and we were just told to pull through the site behind us to get to ours. Otherwise when it's full, these sites are back to back. They're also next to the road and pretty far from the restrooms and bathhouse. The tent sites and 30 amp sites are closer to the bathhouse and further away from the highway. They have very limited 50 amp sites so make sure you mention it if you need it. The lady at check in was friendly and helpful. Your camping fee gives you access to all the historic buildings there and you're free to wander around the grounds. Some of the 30 amp campsites have water but they look like they're filled with long term residents or seasonal workers. Dump station is on site, free. There's free WiFi but it was weak at our site. No cable, no playground, no pool, no off leash dog park. For the price, this was a good overnight for us and we would likely return. - Flippitti
Jul 2015 - $19.00
The cost listed does not include a daily $4/person or $6/vehicle daily park entrance fee. This is a very pretty and well kept park on a beautiful lake. We were told our site was 75ft long and it probably was, but the gravel pad was barely able to accomodate our 43ft rig. It was difficult to maneuver into the site due to a wooden post on one side and a tree on the other. Our site was OK, but had standing water in the back and I assume due to the water there were a lot of insects, especially mosquitoes. We were not able to really take advantage of the lake, but it looked wonderful. Unfortunately the insects were so bad, we did not want to sit or do anything else outside, so we really just considered this a place to park with electricity (50amp). There is no water or sewer hookup. It is a beautiful area but I think overpriced for the lack of amenities. - realgoodbear

We love this park and stay here anytime we are in the Madison, SD area. If you can do without water and sewer (and internet and TV) for a few days, this park is a true gem. Great waterfront sites that are easy to get into. - Haggbloom

This is a gem of a park, and the second time we have stayed here. Some of the back-in sites that are on the water will accommodate large rigs, and the web site provides detailed information, including length, for each site. There is a large parking area the park entrance where you can unhook a toad. The cost includes a nonresident state park fee. We will stay here again. - Haggbloom
