This was an overnighter after a long day and I didn't even know what state I was staying in! They were busy so check-in was slow but these folks were very accommodating and even drove me to my site. Very spacious pull-through site with full hookups. My large rear window faced the Mississippi River and it was a hoot watching the barges go up and down the river. But venture outside for more than a few minutes and the mosquitoes will eat you alive, so be forewarned. I really liked how easy the access became once I actually got inside the park. Will gladly return.

Great shaded park, might be a little tough for those seeking a satellite signal, but the park has cable TV. Quick, friendly check-in, site was pull-through with full hookups. Spaces are a little tight but this was an overnighter so I didn't mind. The only complaint was the entrance was nearly blocked off due to the road construction taking place out front. Entrance is difficult and exit requires that you really pay attention or you could turn into a construction area and not be able to exit or turn around. I walked the entrance to make sure I knew what to do before I committed. But I would gladly stay here again and hopefully the city will finish their construction soon. Nice RV park close to the highway with easy access yet secluded and quiet.

An overnight stay with a gravel double site (back to back) pull thru. Since the park wasn't busy that night I had the entire pull thru to myself which made access, hookup and exit a breeze. The park was a little difficult to find and was not readily marked from my exit off I-70E, but Goggle Maps got me there eventually. Very nice staff, very fair price and a clean, quiet park. That is until someone pulled in along side my site at 10PM and started hooking up. But one never knows the circumstances that may lead to that sort of travel experience and I won't fault Cottonwoods RV Park for that. Good overnight spot.

I like Yankton, South Dakota and I loved this park but I was there in late September when all the tourist were gone and prime sites were available. That is a big factor to consider. Being new to this campground I found the entrance difficult to locate and finally called them from the Marina nearby and asked for directions. None of the literature I had downloaded prior to my visit mentioned that there is no water hookup at any of these sites and I just took it for granted that there was. Fortunately I always carry about a half a tank (35 gallons) of fresh water and it really came in handy here. The site had a 50 amp hookup but that was it. There is nothing else at these sites. But I was looking for peace and quiet for a few days near some water and this place has it. The views are magnificent, the lake only a moments walk away and clearly visible out my windows. The sites are shaded and the park has large, clean bathrooms and showers and dump stations with non-potable as well as drinking water nearby. Just remember to utilize them before you back into your site and set up camp. My biggest complaint came when I had to back into my campsite near the water. There are so many trees that some sites, like mine, were a challenge to get a large fifth wheel and tow vehicle into. There was also a man-made post in the ground at each site where you are to hang your visitors receipt on so the campground rangers know when you are dated to leave. This post made access and exiting very restricted and I was actually angry that someone would put a post right there in the way. I wasn't even sure I could exit without possibly hitting a tree. But when I went to leave after spending nearly a week in this heavenly park, I realized that the post simply lifted out of the ground! If I had only known that upon arrival as well as the fact that there was no water hookup this would have been a perfect visit. This is not your typical RV park but if you want a beautiful campground experience and like the water, this is the place for you. And the morning I left, I drove by 7 deer and one bald eagle in a tree. Beat that at your next stop. I loved this campground.

I arrived here in a torrential downpour only to find that the sites i was given to choose from were actually located in a field. A field of mud. A field of mud covered in about 3 to 6 inches of water. I wasn't going to drive 25,000 pounds of rig into a muddy swamp, lay a 50 amp cord in the water then plug it into a very tenuous looking outlet. I doubt a tow truck could have gotten me out of there after "settling in" all night. I chose to ask for a refund which was happily and understandably provided to me. The staff was also helpful in providing directions to find my way back to the highway as this place is 10 miles back into the swamps of Hammond. I would not recommend any big rig stay at this park. It is more for campers or locals looking for a place to gather for the weekend. Friendly staff kept it from being a total disaster.

I wanted to visit Wall Drugs in South Dakota and this RV Park is within walking distance of it. This is a no frills type park but it had full hookups with gravel pull through sites. The sites were very spacious and the entire park is open to all the elements the South Dakota Badlands has to offer. But the layout is ideal for a large fifth-wheel like mine with no tight spaces or corners. The park is kept very clean and was a delight to stay at. The town of Wall is a hoot and this RV Park was delightful, but I am a no frills kind of guy. Just give me a level site with easy access and full hookups, peace and quiet and a fair price. This park has exactly that. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if ever I return.

This is an older park with many full time residents. The resident children playing outside my trailer were a little loud but kids are just looking for fun and they stopped when it got dark. The staff was pleasant and the price was great. Most sites available are pull-through, gravel with full hookups. There were fishing ponds nearby and lots of wooded area to walk a pet. This was a one night stay so I did not utilize anything other than the space and the hookup. Honestly, many of these residents are hard working locals living in a rather remote town in Wyoming. Being a full-time RV'er, when I come across places like this it reminds me of how lucky I am to be traveling. There aren't a lot of options in Casper, Wyoming but for a one night layover I would stay here again.

Getting to this park from Reno NV was a very slow, steep climb. I got there late for my reservation because I hadn't allowed for the time change, but these folks were very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer. Their pull through sites are normally reserved for Class A vehicles but I have no problem with a back-in. The space I was given for two nights was a concrete pad with every amenity imaginable. I didn't ask for anything other than a full hookup or for a discount, so the price you pay may be less. This is a very nice RV park, clean and modern. The pads are a little narrow and my only problem was that I parked close to the hookups and only afterwards, when I was no longer tethered to my tow vehicle, did I notice there was a bush growing in the area that one of my slide outs needed for expansion. Rather than risk damaging their bush I opted not to open that slide. I don't think anything should be planted that close to a hookup area, but that is my only complaint. I would gladly stay at this park again and recommend it to anyone traveling through that area.
