We were traveling trough the Sioux Falls area in a 36 foot Class A motorhome pulling a mini-van. Red Barn (Good Sam RV park) was the closest for us on the south side of Sioux Falls only about 2 miles west of I-29 (exit 71 Tea, SD). Regular per day/night fee is 33.00 and with the Good Sam Membership, fee drops to 30.00. We have five children with us too and it is 3.00 per child. In all we are only staying the one night for $45.
There are 66 plus spots that did accommodate our Motorhome and mini-van. The access roads in Red Barn RV park are all gravel and were tight in the turns and having to deal with trees on both sides. Parking spaces are less than 10 feet apart. There is every possible service including too weak Wifi, Internets, laundry, a pool, flush-able toilets, shower stalls, and pet walking trails.
Check out time is 11:00 am and spot must be renewed before 10:00 am. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Older park right off I 29 park is clean and easy to find. We only stayed one night and the park us ok for that. The roads a a little tight but doable for large rigs with a tow. Spots are long enough and the width is ok. Wifi is very sketchy. We would stay again when passing through for the night.
Owners very nice and helpful. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stay here as it is close to Sioux Falls and our three sons. There is a constant hum from the 4 lane interstate 1 mile away and there is always a free airshow... really the local vanguards use the airstrip in Tea for their practicing. The site here is sufficient. Most of them are crushed rock; there are some pretty muddy ones though. The owners will allow you to make any changes as long as it is an improvement. Most of the people mow their own grass and do some paver patio and add plants. The pool isn't open right now as they are doing work on it. I don't know if or when it will open this summer. They have free wifi, but even with two receivers and 2 repeaters the wifi is sketchy at best. There is NO cable and you only get 10-12 channels. The owners are friendly and helpful. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites very close together and very muddy . Wi-Fi poor reception. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was not heated and not quite clean. Stayed for two nights. Would come back only if nothing else was available. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Red Barn is an older park, fairly well maintained, but seemingly primarily occupied by seasonal long term campers. Those sites were very well maintained, decorated, and good size. Short term lots extremely close. My neighbor was parked with barely enough room to walk between units. Gravel lots w/concrete pads. WiFi was non existent for our site location. Owner acknowledged weak WiFi signal. Park located close to Sioux Falls shopping, dining and entertainment. We stayed 2 nights; based on lot size and zero WiFi, would probably only stay if nothing else available in the area. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for a few months. It was a quiet site, and after seeing the other options in Sioux Falls we were glad we chose this. Bathroom facilities were a little dated and shower head was low, but worked. Laundry area was nice and clean. We didn't use the pool but it was there. Sites are very close and lots of dirt and gravel but overall we would choose to stay here again if in Sioux Falls We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Showers old but functional. Toilet across the aisle wouldn't shut off. Old bathroom sinks. Sites very narrow. Fire rings around the park broken down from units running over them because of very tight turns. Unlevel and site area had many tree roots. Unfortunately, there are few campgrounds in the area. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
OK park, lots of trees, very narrow roads, tight turns, difficult for Big Rigs. Be sure to follow directions to the park, turn left where it says "Airport". We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.
The only downside to this park is the dust. They need more gravel on the interior roads. Staff was excellent and eager to please. We were there at the beginning of summer and the mosquitoes were brutal. You are allowed to have campfires. It's a quite park with plenty of shade trees. Laundry room was clean - did not use the showers or restrooms. Good Verizon access. Tea is very small, but does have a grocery store, post office and a couple of pizza places. Major shopping only 10 minutes away. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice level, grassy site. Plenty of room. Good area to walk the dog. Very shady, but so many trees that there was no satellite reception. Camp was not well marked on roads leading in. Will stay here again. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based upon week stay. Pros: Proximity to town 5 minutes, pool was well kept and sizable, nearby RV repair options, restrooms were spotless, laundry an affordable $1 wash/dry. The shadiest park we have been in 3 months, a huge plus in July. Has nice “treats” in the office and is priced cheaply. Cons: Half of park is companion sites, the internet was a challenge at best, fine if in front of office. TIPS: 271st St/Hwy 106 exit better option than 273rd St, which forces you onto a dirt road for 1mile. Also, this park fills up fast Fri/Sat/Sun, so reservations are prudent. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
I'll admit to a little sentimental value on this campground. When we first started camping 9 years ago, this was our first stop. It was our last stop on our return home after a month on the road. The sites a very close together. To conserve space they have put the utilities together so campers face each other (and are very close to each other). It's far enough away from I-29 that the road noise isn't bad. It's a decent enough campground for an overnight stop. The Falls Park is well worth a visit. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
I think Red Barn is a good choice in the Sioux Falls area as the other 2 campgrounds we saw were both in-town right next to the interstate system. Red Barn is in the country, maybe a half-mile away from I-29. You can still hear the freeway noise in the distance at night, but the campground was very quiet. It looked like the majority of the population at Red Barn are seasonal campers, there for a month or the whole summer. Like a previous reviewer stated, most were kept up nicely, with flowers and outdoors lights. The owner does seem to have a real interest in old cars (particularity Mustangs). There are quite a few old cars stored and just sitting around the back part of the grounds by their barn, which may be what some reviewers thought made the place look trashy, but the rest of the main campground was clean and neatly trimmed. The people that run the place were friendly. The majority of the spots are shady and graveled. Our site was definitely not at all level, tested the limits of our jacks to even-out our RV. Red Barns restrooms and showers may be the cleanest I've ever come across. Each shower had it's own large curtained changing room area with a seat, a shelf and 2 hooks. Large shower stalls with lots of hot water and great shower heads. Restrooms and sinks were equally as spotless. Our utilities worked OK but water pressure did seem to fluctuate with the time of day. Wi-Fi signal was not the strongest but did work. Has a decent sized pool and playground for kids. There is a good sized Sunshine Foods grocery store on the southeast side of Tea for supplies.
