An excellent place to stay, just off the junction of I-90 and I-25. Large, level pull-through sites are shaded by mature trees. Freeway noise was not excessive. Proximity to the town (walking distance) and to the Bighorn Mountains was nice. Propane is available for purchase. The laundry was very large, with eight washers and eight dryers. We didn't use the pool, but it was a decent size and looked clean. AT&T cell service was good. AT&T air card did not work at all, of course, but that's not the park's fault. Wi-Fi connection was excellent.
A very friendly place, with knowledgeable folks who own it. Very quiet due to distance from I-90, and very accessible to Spearfish and surrounding communities. The office has a small supply of necessaries, which is convenient. Wi-Fi worked well, and we had ATT phone service. ATT air card didn't work. The park would benefit from a propane station, as the only one in town is very difficult to maneuver around. Sites were generally good, but need leveling in many cases. Some have quite steep approaches, which makes for interesting backing. There is a fairly deep swale along the camp roads, but not so deep as to cause problems pulling out of the sites. The laundry room is problematic. It is cold water only: the addition of an on-demand water heater would improve things greatly. There are too many video machines in the room and not enough folding space. Also, larger laundry machines and a wheeled laundry cart for unloading the dryers would be a big improvement.
Rate quoted was with Good Sam discount. An excellent campground in a great location: close to the Black Hills attractions and close to the town of Custer. Very quiet, even though full to near-capacity for the Labor Day weekend. It should be noted that the laundry is cold water only. An on-demand water heater would be a big improvement. Wi-Fi worked well even though we were near the far end of the park. Distance between sites is about 20 feet or less. The person who checked us in was knowledgeable, but the Work-Camper we spoke to the following day was clueless about both the RV park and about the surrounding area. We would stay here again.
Most aspects of this park have been covered. The staff is friendly and the little convenience store has some essentials for purchase. The only negative about this park is that the Wi-Fi is set up to block the sending of emails through Microsoft Outlook, and would not allow me to upload photographs to Face book. This seems to be an unnecessary restriction and should be removed. It's probably not a problem for someone staying overnight, but we were there for a week. Close access to the Park and views of the Badlands are nice. We'd stay here again.
Cedar Shore Resort is a nice location, far from the noise of I-90. Situated on the shores of the Missouri River, the views are nice and the breezes cooling. Our site was waterfront, with a nice view from inside the RV and from the picnic table provided outside. The woman who checked us in was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. There is a huge amount of green space between the sites - at least 30' or more. Wi-Fi at the sites is dependent on how many rigs are between you and the office. They need to install another router closer to the other end of the park. Many of the sites require some leveling of your RV, but it wasn't a big problem. We would stay here again.
Very expensive for what is basically a vacant lot under a railroad trestle. Did I mention the mosquitoes? Great honking hoards of bloodsuckers breeding like mad in the Milk River (hence the name "Edgewater"), a sluggish brown slough that meanders through the town of Malta. My legs were covered within ten seconds of exiting the vehicle. My wife kept them off while I made the hookups. The cable connection's threads were stripped, which made for much merriment. During the five seconds it took us to re-enter the motorhome, at least 20 made it inside, making life unpleasant at 2:00 a.m. when the two we didn't find earlier came a-calling. The evening's entertainment was made complete by the freight trains that came barreling across the trestle at all hours. Despite the other comment, our motorhome did indeed shake, and the noise was deafening. All in all, a most unpleasant stay, and we would not camp there again. On the plus side, the dinosaur museum in Malta, Montana, is tops.
Situated about three blocks from Lake Pepin, a naturally occurring lake on the Mississippi River, this is a most pleasant campground. The $11 rate reflects the $320/month fee we paid for the month of August. Year round rates are available for about $1,100 and there are many permanently set-up sites. Reservations are highly recommended, as this is a very popular campground and fills up quickly in the summer months. Sites on the upper (and older) level are partially shaded. The lower (and newer) level sites have immature trees that don't yet provide shade. The campground is very quiet except for the proximity to railroad tracks down by the river. It seems that the trains started using quieter horns while we were here and we got used to it fairly quickly. Spaces between sites are generous: we were able to set up a 12' x 13' screenhouse in the green space with room to spare. There is a very large green area for tent campers and a large covered pavilion for group gatherings. The management pays for a barbecued chicken feed for all current residents every August. Management was attentive to our needs and friendly throughout our 30-day stay. The laundry room has three large washers and two huge dryers, coin-operated. Full hookups are provided, with the only drawback being that the power feeds are on the wrong side of the motorhomes. Management keeps a stock of extension power cables to loan out: free of charge. No Wi-Fi exists at this time, but cable for transmitters was being laid during our stay and will likely be available next spring. Close proximity to Pepin facilities is a real plus. Restaurants are excellent and within walking distance. Five miles up WI-35 in Stockholm, Wisconsin is the best pie shop in the country. Five miles further, in Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, is a 5-star bakery. A local Pepin mechanic can do repairs, oil changes, etc. on your motorhome, and a repair service in Durand, Wisconsin makes house calls. We would absolutely stay here again. Although Wi-Fi was missing, our ATT aircard worked just fine. It's a beautiful area and an excellent facility.
