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.

Tips for other Campers:

This campground is a common stop for full-timers getting their license in South Dakota. The Drivers license office is about 5 miles away.

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.

Sioux Falls sight seeing.

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 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.

Tips for other Campers:

Falls Park is worth a visit.

We stay here often because the road noise is not as bad as some of the campgrounds on I-90. The Wi-Fi is on and off but is getting better every year. The park has a lot of permanent residents that probably work in the Sioux Falls area. Some of the residents look pretty scary but that seems to improve every year also and because South Dakota is an "Open Carry" state I always wear my .45 on the outside if my clothes. It also helps to keep the dogs at bay when dog owners want to let their dogs run loose in a park with a 6 foot leash rule in effect. Seems to work. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Falls Park to run up the 8 flights of steps in the tower every day for some exercise. And I am 70!

Bob's Cafe for chicken and beans and slaw, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed here as part of a Habitat for Humanity RV Care-A-Vanner group. The park was clean and well kept and the staff was readily available. There were many long term units that appeared to have multiple employees coming and going. Sometimes, this made parking an issue as they had numerous trucks that were left helter skelter. All in all, this park was pleasant to stay at and we will stay here again. A bit pricey for the amenities provided. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

We called in the morning for an evening reservation. The office closed at 3 pm. I picked this campground because it had a fairly good Good Sam ranking. We were assigned a spot in the "West" campground which is obviously the low rent campground. After walking through the "South" campground I can understand the great ranking by Good Sam. However the West had small unclean bathrooms with little grass, tight spaces and no picnic tables. I definately felt this was a ripoff and not remotely worth the money. Stay in South or don't stay at all. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

We didn't stay here, but were told to check it out by Texas friends who summer in the area. We had spent two nights here 10 years ago and never went back due to tightness of sites and general rundown condition of the park. That for the most part has changed. The office/residence of our last stay is gone, having been replaced by a nice new office/maintenance facility. The sites in the original campground have been cleaned up, but still tight. However the adjacent trailer park has been renovated as a newer section of the RV park. Sites are good sized and paved with full services. Some trees are found, but many sites could receive satellite service. There are some permanent residents in the park, but those RVs are well maintained for the most part. I-29 is close by, but that is the norm for most urban campgrounds. Now Tower Campground is a much more viable stopping off point, when visiting Sioux Falls as it is closer to the city center. This will be our choice for a park next time in the area. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

Update to earlier review. Another new manager team. Cleaner than last year. WiFi poor in spite of 3 towers in park. Many dead trees and limbs have been trimmed. Cable good. Added more sites. Road noise seems excessive. Pay attention to the directions in if you have a long rig. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.
