South Whitlock Resort (SWR) features a convenience store with groceries, licenses, beer, ice, gas, bait, tackle, etc. SWR has a variety of lodging options to accommodate just about everyone. Besides the campground, they also have a small motel, cabins and trailers for rent. See their website for info. They have an onsite boat ramp on Lake Oahe. Fishing guide services are also available at SWR. We booked with Curtis Lagan Guiding, see his website for info. The couple who own/run the place are very friendly. He is more than willing to bend your ear awhile if time permits. There are shower/restroom buildings and laundry facilities. Showers were clean. There was no separate dressing room in each shower, also no hooks or shelves in the shower stall but the door was far enough back you could hang your clothes over it and they didn't get wet. SWR's water comes from an artesian well instead of rural water, so has what I call a mineral/iron ore smell/taste to it. There are about 70 RV sites. Our site #2 with W/E/S was on the eastside of the resort facing the gravel road which runs between SWR and a restaurant across the road. Not much traffic on road besides campers & local residents. Kiddie-corner across intersection from our site was a pasture with cows and calfs grazing. Our site was not real level. Sites are grass so if it rains a lot could get mushy. Water pressure was good. Most peoples cell phones seemed to work OK. There was Wi-Fi but the signal strength was not always reliable. Site widths were a little tight as most campers also had a vehicle and a boat to fit on their site. Sites on rows further to the west seem to have more room to spread out. There are mature native cedar windbreaks planted to the west of each row. One evening a sudden rainstorm blew in from the west with gusty 60/70 MPH microburst winds. Dust was blowing so hard at times you couldn't see across the gravel road to our south. Luckily the 3 rows of thick cedars to our west protected our RVs from most of the wind. We told them we were very thankful to whoever planted those trees decades ago. I would stay here again. We camped at South Whitlock Resort in a Motorhome.

Shore Services: 50amp, Sewer good, Water good - Wi-Fi: none - AT&T Cell Phone: No Signal - Sprint Air Card: poor - Verizon Air Card: Good - Cable: no - Site Size: plenty of length on the west sites - Site Closeness: lot of room between sites - Roads: Gravel - Restrooms: Old but clean -Directv Satellite: clear if out near the road - Discounts: none - Payment: Credit Card - Additional Charges: none other than tax - Additional Remarks: This is a nice park. We stayed on the west side which had plenty of room and 50amp service. All services are to the rear of the site. I believe all the sites are back in but there is plenty of room. We tried to go to West Whitlock which is nice but has only Electricity at the sites, no water except at the entrance to the campground. There is a restaurant across the street. Food is good but expensive for what they serve. I would stay here again. We camped at South Whitlock Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
