Checkin was fast and easy. Our site didn't have sewer but that was ok for our one night as we were passing through with no reservations. We were next to a cabin by about four feet. It was noisy for us and crowded for them. I felt bad for them. I moved my toad as far from their cabin as I could but it was still very crowded. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

Located on dirt road on outskirts of Mitchell. Small campground with many seasonal campers. When we were there, they'd had over 2" of rain the previous night so roads were muddy with little ditches to drain the water. Quiet, little traffic. Restrooms very clean and well-stocked, owners very friendly and helpful. Would return. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We only stayed here one night, but we were sorry we couldn't stay longer. The camp was comfortable and had lots of shade trees. The owner was very nice and we had everything we needed. The camp was very family-friendly and everyone was friendly and well-behaved. We would really like to stay here again. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a one night stay after getting delayed a day at our previous stop. The owner was so nice about it and didn't charge us. He held our mail for us. Park was treed but easy for us to maneuver. Folks next to us use the park often. We would return if we ever get back here. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopped for and over night and stayed 3 days. This has to be the most family oriented park I have been to. The owner wants a family park not a party place and works at keeping it that way. One of the friendliest owner I have met. Also had Military discounts for our protectors. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a large play ground, swimming pool & game room with lots of kids. My kids are all grown with kids of their own but they would have loved this place.

Corn Palace, Indian Ruins archaeological dig site close by. Town has many old interesting homes if you like old homes. Wall Mart and shopping riht down the road.

This older campground is very clean and very well run. The campsites are shady (a nice feature during the hot weather), level and large. We stayed here two times, once in both directions on our trip to South Dakota. The pool has concrete sides, which was a bit unusual, but it is super clean and so refreshing. I can't say enough about how helpful and pleasant the staff was to work with. We liked it enough to stay here a second time. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely treed park, could see spending more than one night here.
Things just opening for the season (pool etc), park still fairly busy for a Friday night.
Our site was perfect; level, wide and private. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

We spent 1 night here in the late season. The owners got is into a spot quickly and were very friendly. He drew us a picture to the sight and we drove right to it. The sites were almost perfectly level. The trees provided great coverage but also made grass almost non existent on a few spots. The campground had a really nice playground which we attempted to use but the gnats were terrible for some reason. We noticed the gnats were the same other places thought and not just at the campground so it must be the time of year. We also used the WiFi which I was really surprised by because our sight was almost the furthest from the office but our signal was excellent. The campground was very quiet even for being right next to the interstate. We will return again. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff were very friendly. The trees blocked the highway noise which was nice. Water wasn't working, but they didn't charge for it. There were lots of families and a very cold pool. There were quite a few mosquitoes and lots of smoke from surrounding campsites. Sites were a bit close to each other. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There were owls hunting and swooping in the campground which was cool. Tried to go to Corn Palace, but arrived after it closed.

This park is close to I-90 easy on and off. The road leading to it is a gravel somewhat wash board lane but is less than 1/4 mile so no issues if you take is slow. The park itself has many trees but are trimmed well. Rig mounted satellite dishes probably won't work. When we were there we were able to get a signal due to the kindness of the owner to set aside a spot that would probably help but the trees hadn't filled with leaves. If there are no trees people complain there is no shade. If there are trees people complain there is no satellite reception. What is an owner to do?

The park appears to be nothing but dirt with a smattering of gravel on the roads and sites. With rare exception there is grass where there should be and it is apparent the owners are working hard to keep it that way. But after an all night rain the sites and roads were solid. We had visions of mud all over the fender wells. We took it slow when we left and had nothing thrown on the motorhome. We suspected that because we followed another couple out and we could barely see their tire tracks.

We didn't use the facilities so we can't speak about them. If they are as well kept as the rest of the park they will be great.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 40' rig. The park is located about a 1/4 mile off of I-90 in a grove of Cottonwood trees. The owner was quite helpful and pleasant. They definitely cater to local area clientele, and on weekends you will notice it more. Everybody knew everybody here. The water pressure and electric worked fine. Sites were fairly close together, but it was workable. For an overnighter, it was fine. My Verizon phone was 4 bars and our Millenicom MiFi was 4G LTE. We would stay here again. We camped at Dakota Campground in a Motorhome.
