Dakota Sunsets RV Park – Salem, SD

As we continued our drive east along I-90, we stopped for one night at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground. This is a small, well-kept RV park with level sites and lots of trees. It appeared they recently re-graveled all of the sites and roads throughout the park, and turned what were previously some back-in sites into long pull-thru sites, which is what we ended up in. When I called to make a reservation, they didn’t take a deposit, but asked if we’d call to cancel if we weren’t going to make it. I had reserved a back-in site over the phone, but when we arrived, Polly (the owner) asked if we would prefer a pull-thru as she had one available. I said I would and she gave it to us for the price of a back-in along with a veteran discount. We ended up with a very nice site for a very reasonable price. This was the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, but the park was not full and our stay was a peaceful one. Located about 45 minutes west of Sioux Falls, Dakota Sunsets advertises themselves as “the perfect overnight oasis for visitors who are traveling to and from our state’s many great attractions and scenic wonders”. It really was a great place to stop for the night! We didn’t use any of the amenities, so I can’t provide insight on those.
