This was our second stay at this campground and I wish we could've stayed longer. Big rig friendly. Well-kept and well-managed park. Grounds are clean of trash, grass is cut and trimmed, the dumpsters were never left to overflow, pool is sparkling and well-used. And the owners are lovely people who take pride in their park. The only thing I wish they had was an off leash dog park. Wifi was free but signal was weak at night. No cable but plenty of spaces open to the sky. Sites are level, spacious and trees are trimmed high for the big rigs. We stayed here in a motorhome so the road noise from the adjacent state highway didn't bother us but tent campers will find it bothersome, especially in the mornings when it sounds super-busy. It's one of the nicest parks we've ever visited. We will definitely stay again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to relax and unwind. We had a pull thru site that was very spacious. The grounds are kept mowed and clean. The ladies in the front office are very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for 5 days in a Motorhome. I will put this on my list of places to return to. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

What a lovely campground! Owners are so nice and accommodating. Large, very spacious pull thrus, trees but we still got very good satellite reception. Wifi worked very well. Pool, miniature golf. Wish we were staying longer. Will definitely return when in the area again. Very easy access from I-90 to 81. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Grocery stores, drug stores about 2 miles away.

Nice little campground. Super friendly hosts. Not much around it - makes for a great stop if you're on a longer trip. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel roads and sites. Very well maintained and level sites. Lots of trees and grass between sites. Easy in and out for our 39 ft 5th wheel. I would definitely stay again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a single night stay for us while traveling back home, and the campground was perfect for such a trip. The cost was reasonable, and accommodated what we needed for the night. The park was very clean, while dry. The playground for the kids was very nice, our son loved it!

The couple of faults we experienced were after the overnight rain. The gravel roads became a muddy mess, which made utilizing the dump station a little less clean than it can be. Also, while there are fire pits, there were very few that had any grills on them. With the campground being right off of a major exit of I-90, there was also an exceptional amount of road noise. The wireless internet, while available, was exceptionally slow and near unusable for us.

The staff was friendly, the playground was nice, and the lots were well kept. Overall, a good overnight stay. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well maintained, well-managed park, gravel roads, big gravel sites that fit our 40' MH with toad. Staff were some of the nicest we met. There are a lot of touches that make this park homey - sculptures, flower pots, thriving plants. Lots of grassy shaded areas. Wifi was great (they upgraded to a new tower). No dog park :-( . Lots of barn cats that always look relaxed and comfy. Clean restrooms, laundry and showers (25 cts for 6 min of hot water). We stayed 6 days and they were all great days. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Would definitely return. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely campground in the middle of the corn and bean fields of Salem, SD. Just a short way off the interstate, but far enough not to get that traffic noise. The highway it is on is busy, but we weren't bothered by the noise. They have multiple really lovely shelters for gatherings/picnics and nice benches throughout the park. Our Jeep battery died and they were very helpful with where to get a new one (we were able to jump start it one more time to get to town about 3 miles away!). We stayed here three days. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Country campground. A couple of miles north of interstate. Nice and quiet, good shade, level gravel sites with lots of grass. We didn't even have to unhitch or level up. No amenities at interstate exit, must go further north about 2 miles for gas, propane, some groceries. Campground did have ice for sale. Nice quiet overnight stop or even for a few days to just rest. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park was easy to find from the freeway. Pull-through was level and long enough but not overly wide. Wi-Fi was an issue. The clerk said it was fine, but I couldn't connect and called her. She went to reboot it, but I never could connect. No cable either. Lots of shade in our section, so that was welcome. The campground is very rural, but somewhat scenic and peaceful. OK for an overnight but not a destination. Even without Wi-Fi and cable, this campground was better than the franchises. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Clean, quiet. Long level pull through sites available. Pool was clean. A little off the beaten path - 2 miles off I90 but great overnight. Not too many restaurants in the neighboring towns. Fire pits.Very nice staff. Bathroom and showers a little old but very clean. Shower was 25 cents for 6 minutes. Laundry room. Camp store. Price reflects GS discount. Not too much to do here except enjoy your family. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stop in the middle of nowhere. No restaurants except two bars with no windows, which I quit going to many years back. Nothing that resembled a grocery store except a quick stop gas/grocery. Now to the campground itself. They advertise Wi-Fi, yes, but only after midnight and before 6am. When checking in, they gave us a free fly swatter because the flies were awful. They even warned us about the water pressure, which would be good one minute and a dribble the next. Water went out in the middle of my morning shower. They blamed it on the water lines being cut last year between them and town. I don't know about the campground showers as they were pay-showers and I did not use their bathrooms. A sad state of affairs for a campground. The roads and grounds were neat and sites were long. Those two things were the only good points about this campground. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.
