The dusty roads were a minus, but this was a nice park otherwise

The back-in sites were in a small area at the front of the park, we liked this quiet area

 

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This place is far enough from highway 50 that there is no noise
from there.  It’s also located down a very quiet gravel road.  The
only noise – and dust – we experienced was from vehicles coming
into the park too fast.  But during our stay this didn’t happen too
often.  The office staff was very friendly and helpful, dedicated
folks and not a bunch of teenagers.  We really grew to like this
park during our 5-night stay.

Road and site access/type?
All gravel, some bumps and potholes but easy to avoid if driven
over slowly.  There was a mix of back-in and pull-through sites,
and all of the ones we saw were full hookup.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Site spacing was not great, but OK in the back-in section.  These
sites were low in the front, so we had to use our leveling blocks
and jacks.  The pull-through sites we saw seemed to be a bit
more level.  Lengthwise, we were just able to get our car parked
in front of the motorhome without it protruding into the road.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full hookup 50-amp power was strong, and water pressure
was adequate.  The park offered WiFi that was very fast most
of the time.  The Verizon signal to our phones and boosted
hotspot was excellent.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Both, and they were nice.  The fire pit was on a concrete pad.
The office sold good-sized bundles of firewood at a reasonable
price.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
These facilities were new and clean.  The bathrooms had very
nice showers, and there was an additional shower room.  All of
the showers had benches and places to put the goodies – yeah!
The laundry room consisted of 4 washers, 4 dryers and a
folding table.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
As usual for KOA’s, there was a pool and other areas for the
little ones.  Also several areas for dogs to walk in, although we
didn’t see an off-leash fenced one.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
We found a nice trail beginning at the Visitor Center right
up the road, and there were many others in the area.  Really
nothing right out of the park, but the flat interior roads
provided a place for short biking and walking treks.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
Yankton is a medium-sized city and has a Walmart Supercenter
and HyVee grocery store within a 12-minute drive through
town.  I saw several services for diesel and other vehicles close
to the park.

Comments:
We really liked this park.  The manager advised that it was only 5
years old, so that’s why the facilities were so nice.  The only thing
that would have made it nicer was if the trees were more mature
so we could enjoy some shade.  Lucky for us the weather wasn’t
too hot during our stay.
