We were in site 45 which was spacious with gazebo. This was an overnight stay for us (but would love to stay there longer in the future) and had lots of room to leave truck hooked up. My rate at 4.5 stars is related to by-the-minute charge for use of shower. Easy access from I-90. Staff was friendly. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a well manicured CG with a friendly office staff. The entrance and exit are a "little snug" for a 45' Big Rig towing but once past the entry turns the roads are very easy to navigate. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

We've been to hundreds of RV parks in our travels around the country for the past 35 + years. This is one of the finest RV parks we've ever visited. The grounds are so well managed and maintained -so relaxing! The staff is so friendly! Off the highway enough so there is no road noise. Sites are perfectly level and adequatly spaced. Internet is good. Off air TV does the job! It's the type of campground you feel like you'd want to be at every night for an extended stay or overnight. If I could only find every campground to be just like this one! We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place for overnight stop on I90, about 35 miles from Sioux Falls. Strong reliable WIFI. Sites are roomy and easy to navigate interior roads with big rigs. Friendly staff, clean. Some road noise from local road, but quiets down late at night. We would stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

What a great place! Long, level, gravel pull through site. Some back in sites. Grass and lots of space between sites, very well kept, nice and tidy. We didn't use the shower, laundry or pool (water looks a little murky or I would have given it a 10 rating). Friendly staff, good WiFi, easy on/off, big rig friendly, quiet and overall it was a great experience. Will spend more time here the next time we're the area!! We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here on our way out west with 4 grandkids. It is very convenient to I-90. The grandkids liked the pool. Our site was spacious and clean. Great place to stop while traveling I-90. Easy to navigate with a 45' motorhome. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely oasis in the heartland of South Dakota, 30 miles west of Sioux Falls. Level, lengthy sites can handle any size rig. Knowledgeable office staff asks where your dish is located on your roof to increase chances of a site with TV satellite visibility. Ours worked perfectly. Chrystal-clear swimming pool. Mini golf, horseshoes, playground, meditation areas. WiFi best near front of camp. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful campground! Beautifully cared for, groomed gravel roads (small gravel), level site, lovely shade trees which don't interfere with big rig access. Sites easy to enter and exit. Convenient to I-90 and grocery store in Salem. Wifi worked very well with campground less than half full. Good antenna-tv reception. Surrounded by cornfields and one highway, very quiet. Would love to stay for weeks. Will definitely stay again. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Spent 3 days while taking care of some business in Sioux Falls. Very nice, level, green and clean park. Nice spacing between units, and great area for walking pets. Ladies who manage are very nice. No problem navigating the park with a 40 ft RV and 1 ton truck. Out in the boonies, with nothing much in Salem. But 20 min drive down interstate for major shopping in Sioux Falls. For some reason, the flies were overwhelming. Hopefully just a temp thing. Wondered if being surrounded by corn fields that were near harvest could be contributing?? Will stay here again.

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.
