The Resort was very nice. Paved sites, well maintained, next to a Golf course.
The campground was fairly small and the residents were not very friendly. In a month there, we spoke to two couples.
Castroville is very small and we traveled a lot to San Antonio.
Site 81. They have a lot of rules. A lot. Like, your sewer hose cannot be on the ground. You must park in the middle of your site and not hang over the edge. Your dogs cannot be tied up outside for any reason.
Pros: Nice paved roads, nice paved site. Easy proximity to stores and restaurants.
We stayed in the north section - the new part for five days. The pro was that it was right off I-35. The con was that it was right off I-35. A lot of road noise and because it was a one way frontage road, everytime we left we'd have to go to the next exit, turn around and come back.
Wal-Mart was not far away, and neither was the Oklahoma City National Memorial.
The roads and the sites were paved and although it rained a lot while were there, we didn't have any flooding issues.
Definitely a good stopover.
We're finally getting back to paved roads and campsites. We stayed here for two days and enjoyed it. Stores were close by and it wasn't too noisy.
We stayed for one night. Although a little hard to find, the campground was nicely maintained and well kept. For $20 a night, would definitely stay again
We stayed for two nights. Decent and would stay there again.
As with all the campgrounds in the Dakotas, this one was very dusty and rustic as well. It was right across the RR tracks from Wall Drug, which makes it a good place to stop for a night or two.
The big draw for us here was the Badlands and the Black HIlls National Forest. As a matter of fact, we boondocked for a night on top of the Canyon in the Forest. We had planned to stay for a second night, but the wind was too bad. But the views were incredible.
Next time, I'd look at the Badlands Park for electric sites if it was only for a couple of nights.
We were on site C.
This review is a little harder to write. As far as the campground goes, I was not very happy. We were on the lower loop, where we had very little wifi or cell service for three weeks. In addition, we were directly across from a big pavilion and it seemed that there were parties going on every night. There were much nicer parts of the campground I would have preferred to stay in.
However, it was just moments away from Custer, a small town that we fell in love with. We fell in love with that entire region of South Dakota and even looked at some land. I know that we both are looking forward to going back to that area, but the next time, we found two different campgrounds that we prefer.
In addition to the beautiful State Park and proximity to so many natural wonders, we also ended up tent camping a couple of nights at Lake Bismarck in the National Forest.
One was Custer's Gulch, on the other side of Custer, next to the State Park.
The other one we fell in love with was Rafter J Bar Ranch near Crazy Horse. We loved the island and the 70s sites.
The pictures below are from our camping trip:
We were on site A55. The campground was very dusty - they sprayed water on the roads every day, but it didn't help at the campsites. They were very dusty and full of tiny little gnats. The RVs were parked way too close to each other.
On the plus, side, the ladies in the office were very nice.
But, we wouldn't stay here again. The main attraction was its proximity to Teddy Roosevelt NP.
