This is a beautiful old park with 100+ year old trees. Roads are well maintained gravel (no pot-holes). Owners are friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We've been doing this for over 50 years and ,aside from resorts, this is the nicest park we've stayed in. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great stop off the interstate. Friendly staff. Wifi was good. Walking distance to several restaurants and a gas station. Nothing fancy but a nice stop for the night. Propane also sold here. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great overnight RV park conveniently located between Sioux City and Omaha on I-29. Even though we could see our site from the office, the owner guided us to it and made sure we fit in it. That kind of attention is always welcome. The park is close enough to I-29 that you do get some highway noise, but there is not a lot of traffic. The truck stop next door is a different story. The trucks rumble in at pretty much all hours and garbage was collected at 6AM. The interior roads are gravel and fairly smooth, although a little tight. The site pads are gravel and quite level. The northern two rows of sites are a little on the short side, more suitable for trailers and shorter MH's. The sites in the southern row are quite long and can easily handle the big rigs. The grass sites and large cottonwoods create a nice comfortable atmosphere. The utility hook-ups are conveniently located and the two sewer connection locations can accommodate most any type of RV. There is no cable TV, and not much from the antenna, but the Wi-Fi was good. I liked this park and the owners, I would not hesitate to return. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled into On-Ur-Wa to rest, refuel, and catch our breath before heading to Badlands National Park. Nice level pull-thru full hook-ups sites, which they guide you to. Laundry room & showers were nice & clean. Very good WiFi & Verizon signal. Decent little camp store. Walking distance to Dairy Queen, a Cubby's gas station right next door for an easy fuel up. No need to detach if you're just pulling in for the night (which is what most people do), but we stayed a few days and got rested, caught up on laundry, and enjoyed a day of hiking with the dogs at Louis & Clark State Park, just 2 miles down the road. The owners were good to us & everything was well kept. We'll stop here again if we're passing this way. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overnight stop as we headed north. Approximately 1/2 mile off I29. Easy access from interstate to the RV park. Owners friendly. Guided to pull thru site which easily accommodated our 43 ft RV and towed vehicle. Sites level and and easy to navigate with big rigs. Utilities are fine. WiFi worked fine. No cable TV. Nice overnight stop but a bit pricey. We have stopped in the past and will likely do so in the future. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tidy park with good access to the interstate. Dusty interior roads and long, pull thru sites with some shade. Friendly hosts provided an escort to site, which was level and with convenient hookups. Park WiFi worked well, and Verizon cell/data was very good. No cable, little OTA, but the pull thru sites had a clear shot to the TV Satellites. Not much in the area, just a clean, quiet place to overnight. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for 1 night both coming & going to South Dakota. Its a small "mom & pop" campground. The hosts, Violetta & John are a great fun, caring couple. Really enjoyed the way the handled our caravan of 8 motorhomes. Our leader called ahead about 10 min before arriving & John met us outside and led us in to our sites, all in the same row one after the other. After we were situated we went to check in. Our pull-thru sites were long enough for our 43-45' rigs & tow vehicles.Its not a "destination" campground but for a nite or two it cant be beat. There aren't really any amenities, but sites were long, grass between gravel sites, beautiful trees (but no low branches to run into) but truly the biggest draw was the hosts. My husband & I were the only ones to stop on our way back (we had to get back to work) and they remembered us! We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overnight stop. Owners very friendly and helpful. Advised that there was a severe weather advisory for the area and made sure we knew where storm shelter was located. Easy on and off interstate. Mainly pull-thru sites, full hookup. Roads (gravel and dirt) in somewhat poor condition due to recent heavy rains, but obvious efforts had been made to improve them. Restrooms clean and well-stocked. Grocery store a few blocks away. Would return. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is year two we have stayed here. The owners are great people and very personable. They will escort you to your site. The sites are super long pull thru sites and many have open air to the sky for sat dishes. AT&T worked great. Whatever you need, just ask them, they will do what they can to help you. The owner is always outside cleaning up and grading each space to keep the gravel level. Sometimes he will have his 13 year old son as a side kick plus the Bichon furbaby alongside. These spaces are super level. You get a picnic table that is either red, white or blue. There is ample grass and room between sites. They have a great fenced in doggie run with human seating. There are beautiful potted plants at each site with enough trees to make shade but not be a problem with sat dish. We usually stay 2-4 days. It is right off the 29 but really quiet and relaxing. No pool or wifi but pleasant enough without it. We will always stay at On Ur Wa when in the area passing through. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

On the other side of the bridge there is a state park where there is a lake that I believe you can fish and swim in. They have a public playground too. There is a Lewis and Clark themed ship right across the freeway bridge. On the corner there is a Dairy Queen, across the street a McDonalds and two new gas stations.
