Notes for Cyclists
(If you are in an RV, much of this won't apply to you.)
If you are biking the Southern Tier, this is a good stop for the night - one conservative days' ride from SD. Price is much less than a motel, and slightly more than most pure tent campgrounds. Get your meals before entering. Only snacks and soda are sold in the park, and it's half a mile to the nearest food outside.
It's a river site, so the ground is hard-packed sand, and absolutely level. Not as comfortable as forest leaf-litter, and don't expect to scoop out hollows for your shoulders and hips under the tent, if that's your practice. No gophers, squirrels, raccoons, or other food-stealing varmints seen.
The tent sites are shaded from sun by trees and a rain-sheltered picnic table at each site. That means it should be cool on a hot day, but also that the site will still be wet if there has been recent precipitation. There is a light on the picnic table that stays lit all night - a plus if you are doing work, minus if light bothers you (doesn't affect me). The entire park is lit like a suburb, and you will not need a flashlight to get to the bathroom in the dark. There are two outlets at each picnic table where you can plug in your laptop or recharge your phone. There is wi-fi at decent speed. Possibly there is a charge for it - but I was not charged.
Bathroom with hot showers about 200 steps from the tent sites. Don't forget your bathroom key, they are locked.
Water spigot at every tent site. BBQ grill with a flat area, good for setting up your camp stove if you cook.
Wind was nil to zero. You will not need to stake your tent.
Staff was friendly.
Frogs were singing loudly all night - a plus for me, might be a minus for some.
There was no one in the rec room or pool when I was there in early May. Your best chance for visiting with locals may be the laundry room.
