This was just an overnight after a long day of repair work nearby. We called for reservations and they charged our credit card right away. Price seems high even with Good Sam discount. Park is on the corner of I-29 and 12th Street which is the main road into downtown Sioux Falls. Very busy area and the noise level is constantly high. Our full hookup, pull thru in the west campground was gravel, level, shady and super tight. We were very close to the rig next to us. No fire ring or picnic table. Wifi was spotty. Campground location is convenient to food, shopping, the mall and businesses. If you're a big rig, towing and coming from the interstate, you won't be able to turn directly into the main park entrance due to the median. You will have to go to the next light and make a U-turn. We checked Google Maps and took Exit 80 from I-29 and used side streets to avoid making the U-turn with our 40' motorhome and tow dolly. You can call the office and get directions as well. This was fine for overnight but we won't stay here again. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Reliability is the main characteristic we ask for. When you make a reservation you expect it to be honored. The least someone could do is notify you immediately if they decide to "not honor" it. We made a reservation prior to coming and prepaid. When we arrived in the afternoon we were told that our site was given away because someone made a mistake. They said to go ahead and unhook as they had another site. We unhooked but then they said that site was also unavailable. They, then offered us a 38 foot side that had 30 amp in their overnight park. We have a 42 foot motor home, we need 50 amp, and we need a place to park our vehicle.

So after a hard day's drive you expect to have a place to park. Tower is unreliable and if you use it, you are taking a big risk. Not only did they fail to honor our reservation but they have not refunded the $198.00 we paid for the week. They said it would be 2-4 weeks before it would be returned.

If you do stay here please be aware that people wander through the lot who do not live there. Be careful going out to walk the dog at night. There does not appear to be any security. Do not expect the park hosts to be responsive or helpful. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Park was clean, wifi was okay, restrooms and showers were clean. Park has a bit of a run-down feel, but was fine for an overnight stay. We had a pull-through so traffic noise from major thoroughfare didn't affect us. Many back-ins were right near the road, so glad we didn't take one. We camped at Tower Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mostly long term residents and a few traveling through. Glad we had a large pull through and not a back in.

We found it OK and worked for us but it is looking tired. I would stay again. The site was gravel/dirt and easy in and out for our coach. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

If this is where you want to stay, I would definitely advise making a reservation. This campground has 9 spots for drop-ins; all others are taken by pipeline crews.

West campground is old - a gravel lot with narrow sites - the gravel under the picnic table was full of weeds. The sites are so tight we didn't even open our curtains!

The south area, we were told, has been renovated and has reasonable sites but center ones are back to back, so if you have rear windows, be prepared that you might be looking into someone else's rig a few inches away.

The park has a total of 3 showers in 2 building - 1-west, 2-south. The west one (Mens) was okay if you don't mind the missing toilet tank cover, etc. The south ones (Mens) are a nice size but there's no place to put your toiletries while you shower other than on the floor. These supposedly are newly renovated - dunno how you can miss this?!

Wifi went out first night we were there - never came back on. We checked out after 2 nights.

Office lady was very "cold", showed no interest in helping resolve issues with wifi or attempt to move us from our assigned site in the west c/g to a nicer spot in the south c/g.

Noise from road was not a problem overnight, but in the morning, the people leaving for work in the noisy diesel pickups was annoying.

We would definitely not stay here again. We camped at Tower Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Falls Park is definitely not to be missed - really quite an incredible site.

Walked the Yankton park for 2-3 miles on paved path.

We visited during the weekend, so did not spend any time downtown.

If you are looking for peace and solitude, keep looking.
If you have business or family in the area this is a good choice.

It is very noisy. The campground borders a busy free-way, I-29. There is an airport a few miles away catering to military jets which shake the camper on takeoff. We camped at Tower Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice flat site. Asphalt and concrete. Picnic table. Good Verizon and Direct TV coverage. Felt that the park is overpriced even with the discount. Will try to stay someplace less expensive next time. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Decent park for an overnight stay. One of the few year-round campgrounds in this part of the country, and that's a real plus. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Big rigs, make sure to get instructions for getting into the park to avoid a u-turn that you will not be able to make. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Based on reviews of Sioux Falls campgrounds, we arrived with very low expectations. Since it was further from the interstate, I requested a site in the west side of the park. Not only was interstate traffic noisy, so too was the noise from 12th street. The narrow pull-through site was just an asphalt slab with a pedestal to distinguish its site number. The WiFi was not initially working. We informed the lady who checked us in. After a few hours, the slow WiFi was available. While in the area, we discovered an extensive hike and bike trail system around the city. The CATV had a generous number of channels. The campground had a little used recycling bin. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice clean park right off I-29. Be sure to ask for directions as most rigs cannot make the U-turn necessary to get to the south side of the road. If you turn the wrong way to try and go around the block you can end up in an industrial park with no turnaround. Lots of permanent people but all very tidy. Streets are wide for easy turns and paved sites are angled for easy back-in. Nice trees but we still had satellite reception. Wi-Fi even worked. Good 50 amps. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for four days in order to catch up on shopping, laundry, etc. We also did lots of bike riding on Sioux Falls' great bike paths. This park is fairly neat, with mostly permanent residents. But I can't fault the park for much, other than it doesn't give you a homey feeling like so many parks full of transients do. But our site was plenty spacious and all utilities worked well. We would definitely come back for a one or two nights stay. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for two nights. The park is not as good as we stayed four years ago. Managers are pretty rude, did not offer much help at all. Wifi does not work but they still passed out password to fool RVers to try. Neighbors told us the wifi had not been working for months. Restroom is pretty dirty. Water pressure low and unstable. Looks like we will not come back, too much running down from the good experience we had four years ago. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here four nights to get South Dakota licenses. People at the desk were very nice, however there are a lot of permanent residents here that that in no way follow the rules. Dogs tied up barking, kids out after ten throwing footballs, just too many things to mention that no one was making sure it didn't happen. With a little luck, we will not be back.

This is an okay campground for a short stay (we just did an overnight). Convenient to I-29, but traffic noise isn't too bad, and easy to get into and out of. The only tricky part of getting in is you cannot turn left into the campground off 12th street, and if your rig is long, you can't make the recommended U-turn at the first light on 12th. However, you can just turn left at the first light and go around the block and come back out on 12th. Sites are all back to back, no pull throughs, but the interior roads are paved and plenty wide enough. We would stay here again. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.
