Very nice park with paved sites. Hot when we were here. Equipped for big rigs. We didn't have a reservation, but stayed here mid-week, & no problem getting a site. Not a lot to do here, but it is quiet, peaceful, & pretty. The mosquitoes were terrible, so bring bug spray. Took a hike, the Mertz Grade trail, later in the day & we had no insect repellent. We were terribly harassed by mosquitoes. Nice park, though. Good for bicycling, hiking, & have several museums.

I thought this was a great little campground for the price...has the basics, a nice view, quiet, & close to the Badlands. One of the things I really liked about it was that I didn't have to look at the motel-it's behind the campground. Sites are level, trees are a nice size. Office staff was nice & accommodating. The most disappointing thing was that there was no 50 amp service for big rigs & the day we arrived it was hot & took forever for the RV to cool down. Also the picnic tables need to be replaced, but not a big issue as we hardly ever use them. Wi-Fi worked fine at our site-the one nearest the office, but they said it probably wouldn't work at others further away. Campground had some older playground equipment for kids & an above-ground pool.

A great campground where the owners go the 2nd mile for you. Owner offered to make a repair on our hitch and I also saw him helping another camper with an automotive problem. The campground is attractive with plenty of sites: some out in open and some under trees which all offer nice shade. One of the few places that lets you wash your car or RV for a small fee. Has free bicycles for camper use, pools, arcade, book swap, video rental. You name it...they have it. We'd camp here again if in the area.

My price reflects the Good Sam discount. This was a great campground with very friendly management who gave us an escort to our site and helped us get positioned. They also gave us maps and suggestions of what to see and do. Wi-Fi worked great. Cable TV worked great with lots of channel selections. Sites are amply large with nice trees. You can also get propane here. Very attractive campground entry: easy to get and out. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

A bare minimum campground with full hookups available. Looks generally rundown and seems to have lots of seasonal or work-campers (it's a coal town). Main campground road was full of potholes, but it just got a big asphalt patch job done, which improved it. Sites are ok in width: big enough for slides. Kind of scary maneuvering around the campground roads: have to go through a really narrow spot to get to our site. Manager claimed they had Wi-Fi, but I didn't want it bad enough to go to the office to connect, so I can't comment on that. Only reason we came here was we thought it was the only one in town, but I think there's another park now.

Great campground! Attractive, nice gravel roads, green grass...they water it a lot. Can't put anything on the grass. Mature trees. Only problem was sites aren't quite long enough. Our rig was 38' & with the car parked sideways, it barely fit in the site. Management very friendly & cordial. Sites plenty wide & ample for slides. It was a great stop...we only intended to stay for 1 night, but stayed 3 & easily could have stayed 4-there's much to see. Virginia City & Nevada City ghost towns are 40ish miles away. The Missouri Headwaters State Park is very interesting. Also take Highway 2 West just as a pretty drive...gorgeous mountain & prairie scenery. This is the road that takes you right past Lewis & Clark Caverns-didn't have time to see. The campground is over a 100 miles from Yellowstone. The exit off I-90 has a 24 hr diesel repair shop with 24-hr towing & a very nice family owned bakery here too. We didn't use the diesel repair, but saw the sign.

This is a very nice park, easy to maneuver in & out. Management very friendly & helpful. I love the woodsy feel of the campsite; we felt like we were by ourselves in the woods. It's quiet; you can hear the highway, but not an issue for us. Some sites were dirt & some paved. They had a volleyball net set up, I noticed, & one other toy for kids-no playground that I noticed. The wi-fi was the best connectivity we have had so far. The office also served food & had food you could buy out of coolers. Office had very homey feeling. Looked like they had games, books & magazines set-up in there & looked like they had a laptop for people to use. I would definitely come here again.

Even though the sites were narrow & a little tight in maneuvering, we enjoyed this park. It is easy to get off interstate. Management was friendly & guide you to your site. They have enjoyable nightly entertainment in the form of a group of 3 singers (2 guitarists & an accordion) & they took requests. Lots of campers were here, so it seemed to be a popular park.

Pluses: pretty park, attractive entrance, nice plantings, trees between sites, has a AAA rating & they take Good Sam. Negatives: Narrow sites, not a lot of room to maneuver getting in & out of site. Lots of rules. Can't have anything on the grass such as a mat. Everything has to be on the gravel site. Owner initially friendly, but very firm about rules: even circled items on her rule sheet that were important to her. On our last day there we made a bad judgment in leaving one of our 2 dogs in our rig while out for the day & yes, it broke one of her rules because he barked most of the day, we learned later. I couldn't believe how furiously angry she became over this. She had left a note on our RV to come to her office when we got in, which we did. She punched her hand to emphasize each rule we broke, and how: "IT'S CAMPERS LIKE YOU WHO CAUSE CAMPGROUNDS TO MAKE A 'NO DOGS' RULE." When I tried to apologize she, responded furiously with, "SORRY DOESN'T GET IT!" The other rule we unwittingly broke was we reuse dog waste bags, and save it up to throw away when we leave and this didn't set good with her either. At least we clean up the waste! I felt that we were getting the brunt of all her anger over us sorry campers. Her final comment was she was going to "let" us stay that night, but we had to leave the next day, which we were only too glad to do. There are plenty of other campgrounds around this area. I will never go there again. I thought she was overly angry for the offense and needs to either get out of the campground business or take an anger management course.

(We didn't stay here), but looked it over. Plenty of sites, but wall-to-wall kids on bicycles everywhere! Sites are close together like they're trying to squeeze as many together as possible. No room for privacy. Noisy!

Nice pretty park. Price reflects the Golden Age Access pass. They had several price ranges-if you wanted a water view the price went up a few dollars. In my opinion the water view was still obstructed by trees. There were lots of campsites here. Management was nice at check in & after that, no hassles about anything. Nice place to camp for visiting Land Between the Lakes as it is located right at the beginning of "The Trace."

Nice park for an overnight stay. Easy in & out from the road. Management was very friendly & helpful. Led us to site. Had full hookups, but sewer connection was positioned so far back that it wasn't usable. Had Wi-Fi & cable, so for the price thought it was a good deal.

Very nice park & great hosts...very friendly & helpful. We called ahead to say we were coming & even tho the campground was full, they squeezed us in by one of their unoccupied camping cabins & allowed us to use the outdoor cabin electricity & water spigot. The view was wonderful at the impromptu site we had...best in the whole campground in my opinion...& we were so busy while there, that they let us stay another night at this spot. Had to pay full price for all this, but didn't mind that...the site was so nice.

This State Park had the basics seemed a little run-down overall. It has a lake, but no place for swimming. The focus seemed to be more on fishing. It has 2 campground loops: a newer one which no one was in, but it was the middle of the week, & an older loop, which had most of the people. The gatehouse person was very friendly & helpful, but I thought one of the office staff was a little snippy when I asked about the availability of their lodge room facility for an event. There is a nice loop road around lake to walk or fish from.

I agree with comments of other posters on this park. It is in an open treeless field of grass, & it's a little bumpy getting to the site, but they are all pull throughs. Main roads in campground are mixed paved & gravel. Easy to hook up, & we thought it was a great deal considering that it was full hookups & wi-fi. Can't comment on the wi-fi since we didn't have a chance to use it. Office doesn't open until 1pm central time, but we left a message on their answering machine that we were coming there, & they got it; all we left were our first names. Management was friendly. Mosquitoes are deadly, so bring your "Off"!

After driving for hours, finding this shaded, easy to get to campground was a most welcome sight. Check in was easy & I was glad to have someone lead me to our site. Sites are side by side pull throughs, but it didn't feel overly tight. Nice for an overnighter. Yes, the gravel road was dusty coming in, but I was just glad to find something close by. We had Wi-Fi that had average connectivity. Looked like the playground had plenty for kids to do. It was well-kept looking & clean. My only complaint was that one of the workers came around in his golf cart & officiously announced, "Your dog has done his business, are you going to clean it up?" We'd only been here for a half hour, for crying out loud & hubby was taking a nap. Granted I've heard that is a #1 problem with campers; I understand that, but thought it was a little extreme. So be prepared to clean up after your pet the minute he defecates!

OK park for an overnight stay. I agree with most comments of previous posters, although we didn't think the owner was ever mean or nasty...maybe a little too talkative...& he did try to be helpful in pointing out nice driving routes to take. Park is in middle of an open field...very little shade; it has trees, but they weren't very large yet. We weren't able to get Wi-fi either; owner said it was "tricky." Cable is $2.00 extra, but not worth it in my opinion, only 6 channels available. Owner came around in golf cart doing his rounds & told husband no washing of cars when he was just squirting off windshield.
