Just a few miles off I-90 but a world away. On a beautiful lake, beach and boats to rent. We stayed for one night on our way to the Badlands/Black Hills and we liked it so much we also stopped on the way back. They have many seasonal spots which have the lake front, then they have many transient sites which are grouped together. They are full hook-ups, have picnic tables and fire pits and most are pull through. We didn't even have to disconnect the last night. Lots of grass and black top roads. This campground is very clean and well kept. Many employees were around offering firewood, picking up garbage, etc. We seldom rate a 10, but this place had everything we wanted. - dalebonnie

This is a beautiful park nestled along a lake and with well maintained lawns between sites and many trees throughout the campground. The lush greenness is especially appreciated after driving along the mostly treeless of I-90. Many of the sites are well-maintained seasonal RVs. Despite the trees, we had no problems getting satellite at site 74A. We only stayed for and overnight. - ellynmae

Wonderful mature park. The service was amazing.You need a car to go anywhere out of the park but there is plenty inside the park to keep you busy. - Psushu

A comfortable park with friendly staff, level pull-thrus, and plenty of shade. We wish more campgrounds were like this - easy in and out, good facilities, and a very reasonable price. The WiFi worked well, OTA TV was adequate, and Verizon cell/data was strong. Quiet and peaceful, our preferred park when traveling in the area. - Meanderman

My wife and I are disabled so doing strenuous work is next to impossible. As I pulled into my campsite the left wheel fell off my utility trailer. My bearings were shot in both wheels and after purchasing the parts needed the owner & staff were able to make the repairs so we could could continue our trip. The staff and facilities make it a welcome campground. They went above and beyond what other larger impersonal campgrounds would have done. If we are ever back in the area we would definitely make this campground a priority. - BobBird

This is a campground not an RV Resort, but it is a really good campground. The staff is very helpful and they "think like a camper". For example, our 41 foot 5 slide 5er filled up our site and a tree limb was brushing one of our slides ... without us asking, they came by and trimmed the tree limb. The park is clean and well kept. A number of "long termers" but the area was kept very neat by all occupants. Plenty of room for our dually. Enjoyed our stay and very likely to return. - Ron N Janice

Right by the lake. Washboard road leads to the park. No water connection, although there is a place to fill up. No sewer connection, but there is a dump station. There is electricity. We picked up some tv stations using our antenna. Campsites are on the grass and the sites aren't well defined. That being said, it's a pleasant place to stay by the lake, quiet and easy southbound access to the highway. No close services, restaurants or grocery stores. Cost was reasonable at $25. - jkp99b

This is a no-frills campground. The sites are grass, and have water and 30 A electric. There is a dump station on the facility. This is right next to the lake but I would not call this lakeside camping, since there is a dirt road between the sites and the lake, and the lake has docks and other areas that people go fishing from.
The camp host has wood and ice available for purchase at a reasonable cost. The sign said $15 for the site but he asked for $20 and I didn't argue Maybe there was some fine print and I wasn't going to stand on principle over $5.
Shower and restroom were clean enough, though could use a coat of paint. Water was warm and strong. Almost no one was here in Mid-August and they do not take reservations. - zDale

Used this park for a quick overnight stay while traveling. It has 9 RV sites and only three were occupied on a Tuesday night. Easy in and out. Site was fairly level but well kept. Note: At one time the first night was free, this is no longer the case. $20 very reasonable for full hookup. We used it to dump because it was our last night of the trip. Saved me from stopping at a dump site later. Good deal! Nothing fancy but very adequate for a one night stay. - Dooger54

This is a hidden Gem that apparently quite a few people know about. Not well publicized but worth finding if you are in the area. We got there about 4 pm and 3/4 of the dozen sites were taken. By nightfall all sites were filled but one. Small, just dirt pads, not completely level at the back of the fair grounds but very quiet, reasonably priced, close to the everything, good for a night or two for sure. Self service with a pay booth. - Johnny xxxxx

We stopped here as we were headed home from out west. This is a surprisingly nice little full hook up campground for only $20. The campground is tucked away in the back of the fairgrounds. Just follow the camping signs past the fitness center to the back of the park. There are 9 RV sites and 4 tent sites. All 9 RV sites are nicely groomed and full hookup. They are all 50' back in and there was enough room for us to back in our 35' with the toad attached. The camping loop is not huge but there is plenty of room for big rigs to get in and out. ATT and Verizon both had strong signal and fast 4g LTE. - TeamErnzer

Great Campground - Plenty of space!
Pulled into this newer campground on a weekend stay in the area. It's fairly new, so all the hookups and facilities still have that "New" feel to them.
There are several play areas for the kids, which were very welcome, and each spot has plenty of "elbow" room from your neighbors.
As was previously said, campfire wood is available on site, and the owners are around to help with anything needed.
Since this is a new campground there is not a lot of shade by the sites yet. I'm sure in a couple years when the tree's take off this will be a lot better, but for now, you'll need to use the awning.
Overall it was a great experience and I'm sure we'll be back. - flippet

This is a very quiet and peaceful campground located on a good fishing lake with a dock, seating and a paddle boat. The owners are on site and very friendly and accommodating. Firewood is available and a bargain. It was very windy 2 or the 4 days we were there, we were on the top of the campground and we were rockin' and rollin'.
For all you quilters or seamstresses they have a very nice club house with several large rooms and 2 ping pong tables. They opened it up for me so I could do some cutting. An awesome facility. You could probably "hog"one room and lock it every night and your stuff would be safe. - chris and jerry

We had beers staying at a CG in Madelia, about 15 minutes east of here. With weather forecasts calling for heavy rain and a flood watch, we moved here because the sites are concrete pads. We were only here 2 nights, but we are very happy with the campground. The sites, as noted, are concrete and level, with a mix of pull through and back-in. Sites have 50 amp, water and sewer. Recycling and trash dump at park. There are bathrooms as well, and a shelter. The campground is on the lakeshore—I imagine in the summer this is quite busy, but in October we pretty much have the place to ourselves. We would consider returning should we be back in the area. No cable, but good over the air TV, good cell (verizon) service, and free WiFi that works! - SandmannRV

We have been impressed by how much effort my home town has put into making this small campground a great value for the traveling and visiting public. Since there are so few, let me list the CONS first: 1. No reservations. First come, first served. Since we were coming all the way from KS I sent a relative an extra night's payment and they filled out the paperwork and parked one of their vehicles in a spot for us. We feel it was a legit move as we paid for the spot for three nights. 2. No WIFI, No Cable. PROS: 1. It is on the lake! Our windshield and side windows had a great view of the peaceful vista. 2. It had all the necessary services - Good water pressure, choice of 20/30/50 amp 120v which was phased correctly and steady, sewer (what can you say about sewer? It worked). 3. Had a half dozen free airwave channels. 4. Lot's to do within walking distance Community Pool. Fishing Dock. Boat Launch Ramp. Short walk around end of lake to huge city park with volley ball pits, playground equipment, picnic shelters and tables. 5. Did I mention? It is right on the lake! Okay. I moved to Kansas and I miss Minnesota's 10,000 lakes. - HunkyDoryKS

Really nice campground. Many sites are paved. Good over-the-air tv signal and 4-5 bars on horizon. Restrooms were not clean when we arrived, but we complained and they corrected the problem. Would definitely stay here again. - herbee

The good stuff first: excellent camp host, nice and convenient location, well maintained and a great deal—we stayed for two months for $500 a month. Water, sewer, 50 amp and free WiFi. Decent verizon signal, and OK over the air TV. Town is small but has a good grocery store and an excellent Mexican restaurant as well as a micro-Brewery. The not so good—the campground floods. It is on the river, and it was closed early in the summer and then almost closed again in late September. In the meantime, the sites are gravel/grass on the outer ring, and all grass in the middle. And when it rains, the campground middle becomes a lake. We had to be towed out (thank you Good Sam and Geifer’s Towing) from the middle on Labor Day, and as soon as we pulled into one of the outer ring sites (which are gravel/grass), we sunk right back in—got ourselves out of that one but it was a mess. Would be nice to see investment in concrete or asphalt pads, or at least more gravel/crushed rock. - SandmannRV

Dirt/gravel/grassy sites and it had recently rained a lot so some sites were very muddy. Some were under water due to flooding. One entrance was closed. There is a camp host on site at the entrance. He told us to park wherever we wanted so we chose a spot backed up to the beautiful golf course. The site was long enough for our 32' plus the truck so we didn't have to unhook. AT&T phones worked great. Park WiFi showed up under connections but it was secured so only being there one night I didn't ask if we could use it. Got plenty of antenna TV channels. Water pressure was the best we've had in months.
Ball park nearby with a game going on but still managed to be peaceful. We were told by neighbors there is a very good Mexican restaurant close by but it was closed because of the flooding. Watona Park was a very pleasant experience. We were there on a Wednesday night and there were only 3 other campers. Some sites were partially/mostly shaded. We would stay there again. - Meesha

We were here on a Saturday evening (after Labor Day) and there were lots of sites available. We have stayed here once before. Although the sites are back-to-back we were able to pull into a pull through space with no one on either side of us. The power is good and the water pressure was just right. The sewer hookup is funky because you unscrew a large plastic tree for the easiest way to empty your holding tanks.
The access roads are black top. This campground is next to a park and golf course; both emptied as the sun went down.
It is self registration so you will need cash or a check. - skigramp

We read about this park on these reviews and decided to spend a long weekend here. We are so glad we did! We arrived on a late Friday morning and drove through the 4 camping areas. The largest, and the one we liked the best, was area 4 at the far end of the park. Just about every site was empty so we got a great impression of the park. Every site we saw looked level. Some were a bit close and some had a bit more space but all of the RV sites seemed workable. We selected a site we liked, #84, right down by the lake, big area around the fire pit, and very easy access. When we went to check-in at the caretakers home, we found that almost every site had been previously reserved over their web but #84 had just been cancelled! We spent 3 very nice days here. Bathrooms were clean. Hiking in the park was fun. We walked around the "island" and found it a very nice trail. Our dog was with us and enjoyed the park too. One problem, many people here did not follow the dog-on-6-foot-lease rule so we were a little nervous twice and nearly needed to intervene in one situation. View of the lake was wonderful. Very breezy while here so there were no bugs at all! Good Verizon 4G coverage throughout the park. Very nice family type of atmosphere though the majority of campers seemed to be friendly older empty-nesters. Good playgrounds for those kids that were here. Areas 3 and 4 have modern flush toilet bath houses. Areas 1 and 2 seemed to rely on porta-potties. - AndersonFamily

Length of stay was seven days. The website does not reflect the beauty of the park. You can make a reservation through the website, but I did not like using it. It said there were pull-through sites, but I didn't see any when we got to the park. I suggest calling. The park was hard to find using GPS, as it was not accurate on truck GPS or my phone app. Nice park entrance and office. Friendly staff. New managers. Sites are difficult to get into with a big rig. Lots of trees and no pull-through sites. Electric not so good: only 30amp. Some sites without water. Bathrooms dated, but clean. Scenery gorgeous! Beautiful lake, but no boats to rent. During the week, we had it practically all to ourselves; weekends bring a respectful, family crowd. Verizon phone access great; no T-mobile access. No internet. Went to the library in downtown Mapleton for access which was pretty decent (although the staff was not aware they had wireless). Small town with just a couple of restaurants. Charming little tea house there! Great area for biking as the roads are paved, marked for biking, and little to no traffic due to it being farmers country. (They don't have to drive to work!) Rates typical for a county park. $18 p/night, but they do have a senior discount. We will stay again as it's located by family, but if another park popped up with easier access for a big rig, we would probably, sadly switch. - destinationvibe

This is an exceptional county park with beautiful views of Lura Lake. It's tucked away far from any highways or trains. There was no noise from other campers until the campground got busy on the week-end. Unfortunately it looked like the bathrooms hadn't been for months. Piles of worms were in the corners of the bathroom. We camped there several days and that became a problem for us. When the week-end came, suddenly thorough bathroom cleaning occurred. We would probably camp here again with hopes that their bathroom cleaning becomes more consistent. - pocabe
