We arrived on a crowded holiday weekend to find our reserved pull-thu site was occupied and unavailable; however, the very friendly and helpful manager closed the office to personally guide us into a site that allowed us to keep our tow vehicle attached. Older, small park with tight turns on the interior gravel roads, but level gravel sites and lots of trees and grass. Hookups were OK, and although no cable, OTA received 10 channels and we found an open spot to use our tripod satellite mount. Verizon cell/data were good, and the park WiFi was intermittent due to the large number of people in the park. Very quiet at night due to location well off the Interestate, but still convenient to access. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Very neat little park,
Close to the Interstate, but far enough away to be quiet.
Would stay here again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

We dealt with the two very nice ladies that own/run the park and found them delightful.

The park is clean and beautiful with wide gravel roadways and sites, separated by a lot of grass and very nicely landscaped. The WiFi worked very well.

The small store in the office was not where you went to stock up the RV, but the collection of "collectibles" was fascinating. From old tools to antique postcards! I even found a Ford-script combination wrench that Ford used to include with every car when they were selling the Model A 80+ years ago.

This park is a wonderful place to stop along I-90, or a place to stay a few days. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy on and off I-90, only 1.5 miles off. Office made check in easy and quick. Site was large and level. The park is very clean and well maintained. Only reason for the 9 was the odor from the "water shed lagoon". Verizon service, along with Direct tv was very good. There is some local traffic noise which usually subsides in the evening. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Small park, but great setting with tall trees and green grass. Everything was very neat. We had a long wide pull through and didn't need to unhook for the one night we stayed. Its a mile from I-90, so its very quiet. We had great AT&T mi-fi, and cell phone. Wish there were more parks like this one. Good value. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our 3rd summer to stop here, a planned two-day stay turned into two weeks due to unexpected repairs on our motorhome. Lovely and helpful ladies in the office. They were full most of the time but managed to find us a shady site. We now consider this park our "home park" in SD. Beautiful well maintained grounds, good wifi for email and news, great water pressure. Sites are long and wide. We had a 50 amp pull thru that was level. Big rig friendly. They recycle. The wastewater lagoon will sort of stink when the wind shifts but we only noticed it twice during our two weeks there. Always a great stay. We'll definitely return.

This was our second time staying here and it was nothing like the first time. There are 2 female owners, one was very helpful when making our reservation, however the other one was so rude during check in and later when I asked her a few questions. She treated us like we were bothering her and we would have left if we had not already paid for a week. There are only 2 washers ( $2.00 to wash 1 load ) and 2 dryers. Unless you were right in front of the WiFi antenna, WiFi was useless. The park is ok if you can overlook the one rude owner. We will NEVER stay here again.

This park is about 1 mile from I90 which makes it very quiet. We had a pull thru site to the back which was very good although the wifi signal could not be received. We did get wifi when we walked up to the office area. As for the site it is gravel and fairly level. We did not put down our leveling jacks since we were only there overnight and would be leaving early the next morning but did not notice any leaning. The site has full hookups and the pool although not heated was quite refreshing. We were having very good sleep only to be awaken by a severe thunderstorm at 2am. It was gone by 4:30 am but the damage (loss of sleep) was done. All in all this is a very nice overnight park that we will visit again when in the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful owner/hosts. This place is wonderful, quite and clean. Level sites, easy pull-through, away from the I-90. Some noise from Hwy 81 but not too bad. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Easy check-in. Very nice large pull thru lot. Far enough from I-90 that there is no road noise, but still easy to get to. This campground is in the middle of farm fields so it was very restful. They did have a pool which we didn't use. Stayed 3 days while our truck was repaired. Would definitively stay here again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
