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.

We spent 1 night at Camp America Campground on an extended trip. Easy access 1 mile off of !-90. Park is well maintained, with level sites. Will stop again when traveling in area. Rate was Good Sam, full hookups. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Really nice and well-kept park. Great for overnight stays. Level sites with picnic tables and plenty of grass and trees. Friendly check-in. This park does recycle. Rate reflects GS discount. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in 10 different campgrounds from San Diego to Illinois and back to South Dakota on this trip. This campground was the best campground of the 10 places we stayed. Wi-Fi was the best we experienced. Long, level pull-throughs. Nice grass between sites, and trees provided lots of shade. This will become a regular stopover on our yearly travels to Illinois and back. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

This is one of the nicest parks in South Dakota. It is super clean with very level sites. Staff is great. Only 1 1/2 miles from 1-90 so no noise. Will absolutely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

A very clean, well run park located 1.5 miles North of I-90. Big rig friendly with room for privacy and slide-outs. Surrounded by farmland with trees in most of park. If you need satellite, ask for a site when checking in. No TV, but I got 6 digital channels on antenna. Electric and water good with steady Wi-Fi throughout park. Restrooms are spotless. Showers cost 25 cents for 6 minutes. Clean pool, small playground, miniature golf. Little nightime road noise. Level gravel pull through and backin sites. Highly Recommended. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice, neat, quiet campground just off the interstate. If you need satellite, be sure to say so when you make your reservation as there are a lot of trees. Our pull through site was long and level. Water pressure wasn’t too bad but then the campground was almost empty. There did seem to be a lot of Clorox (?) in the water based on smell and taste. They offer recycling with five different categories. The gravel road next to the campground could generate a lot of dust; with a south wind. It all came into the campground. Verizon and Sprint worked fine. The staff was friendly. No problem with staying here again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

I loved this campground. Nice layout, friendly staff. Very clean. We met people who return to this campground every year. Attractive. Very quiet at night. Most sites are shaded, but a few sites are open enough to have good satellite TV reception (as was ours). The office/store is interesting - antiques are sold here, as well as supplies. I would definitely return to this campground if in the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an older, but nice park. While it is well treed, the drive-through sites on the south side have good satellite reception (e.g., site 32). The park is surrounded by corn and soybean fields. Roads are gravel, but well maintained. Sites are level and covered with gravel. It is about 1.5 miles north of I-90. In the evening there were a lot of flies. Not a big deal and we would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Great little campground! Loved the antiques! Though no fault of the campground, the flies were horrible. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.
