We stopped in here on our way to Montana due to our vehicle breaking down. Ended up staying 2 nights and all I can say is so happy we broke down here! Owners are SUPER friendly and helpful and the park is like an oasis! Beautifully kept, nice level pull thrus and they are dog lovers which was great for us as we had 3 with us!!!! Would go back in a heartbeat!!! We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second stay at this campground. Our first stay was about 4 1/2 yrs ago & it was a decent park but tired. New ownership over past month, they have revived this park & it has beautiful level sites, sites for big rigs & is quiet & just a great place to stay. I am told the pool will need renovation & hopefully will be open for 2019 season. Owners are terrific, friendly & will escort you to your site. We will stay here again. Terrific Verizon signal & be sure to let them know what type of satellite you have & they will try to accommodate. Super easy on/off from Rt 90. I wish the new owners the best success! We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice staff and the grounds are well maintained. While other campgrounds call their weeds grass, this campground has very well maintained landscaping. Both grass and other plants. I would stay there again in the future. The site was very good and level. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This camp is under new ownership, and they are doing all the right things. Good value and friendly staff with nice campground. The trees have been trimmed properly making it easy to navigate interior roads and campsites. Sites all seem level and well drained. Water, electric and sewer hookups at each site are in good condition and well located for easy hookup. Sites are somewhat shaded, but still enough sunshine to dry out nicely after a rain, and enough to get good TV satellite signal. Pool is closed for the season, and will get an overhaul spring 2019. We really didn't see any seasonal campers - just weekenders and travelers. This campground is just far enough off the freeway to be quiet, and yet still very convenient to I-90 for long distance travelers. Great stop after a long day's drive, or for a family weekend. Good DISH signal. Good AT&T signal. We will definitely stay here again during our travels. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Convenient from Interstate, but far enough away that there is no noise. Staff is pleasant. Easy navigation in campground. The campground is attractive. The site was long enough that we left our toad attached. The utilities were well placed and worked well. The wifi was okay until the campground filled. There is no cable, but they gave us a site where we could receive satillite, and we got digital channels ota. I would stay again. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This place was perfect for us. After dry camping in the Badlands, we really wanted a full hook-up but not too far off our route home and not too expensive. This is literally only a mile and a half off I-90 and only $35. A very pretty, pleasant campground. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Everyone recommended Cafe 81 for breakfast and they were right. The food was delicious (although the service was a little slow).

We stayed an extra day because our destination camp in Minn. had been flooded. Office graciously shuffled things around so we wouldn't have to move. Lovely trees and grass at each site. Gravel sites being leveled because of recent rains showing the pride they have in their campground. Playground for kids and pool. Covered patio with tables available at some sites. No freeway noise. Excellent verizon service and wifi. Will definitely stay again since we travel this route yearly to visit family in Wisconsin. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice green grass that they obviously tend to. Nice level spots. A very clean park that shows the staff's pride in their campground. Did notice a few cats around that our dogs enjoyed barking at. Strong WiFi. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy On-Off from I-90. Before going any further before you start to swing into the park PLEASE make sure there are no vehicles behind you. We had a car pass us as we were trying to enter the park. Could have been nasty. Cute park, we were in a pull-thru with FHU's in site #32. Great site for a front satellite. Some of the roads were a little tight for a 40' motorhome. The roads are packed dirt, the sites at the same with some rocks, each site has a fire pit plus a picnic table. The ladies in the office were extremely nice and even offered us some apples that were picked from their trees and tomatoes. There is a charge for the showers which we didn't use. They offer a Sunday Celebration with open communion if you so desire. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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 Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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 Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
