When you choose to stay at Oasis Campground, you also embrace an enterprising history dating back to the early 1900s. Al’s Oasis is an empire, spanning generations of enterprising souls.
RVers pull off the interstate and get hooked up to electricity (30/50 amp), water, and sewer, plus the internet and cable TV. Once settled, they head across the road for a cup of coffee still being served at 5 cents a cup. Also on the menu is Al’s famous buffalo burger, a delicacy revered by road trippers.
RV sites are fairly level on a gravel pad with tons of grassy space either side and easy pull-through/back-in access. The daily rate is $40.95 and each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Tenters pay $25 nightly for sleeping out under a South Dakota sky, and that's a bargain considering your private view of the Milky Way and stars galore.
Set close to the mighty, Missouri River, keen anglers and hikers will enjoy scenic walking trails and a choice of salmon or walleye to bring home for supper.
Oasis Campground has clean restrooms, hot showers, and a laundry, plus a sparkling, heated pool and a fun kids' playground. The shining star is across the way, with the legendary Al’s restaurant, saloon, and supermarket a short walk from your RV or tent.
South Dakota has a variety of outdoor activities ready to inspire with a rugged landscape where every adventure begins. The city of Chamberlain, only 4 miles from the camp, highlights the Liberty Sculpture overlooking the Missouri River.
The campground is pet-friendly and requires dogs to stay on a leash. Owners are expected to pick up their waste and supervise them at all times. The camp is close to a noisy freeway and train tracks, so the on-leash policy keeps pooches safe. Road trippers know that some campgrounds welcome their dogs but don’t always offer litter bags. You might find them at Al’s supermarket; otherwise, bring them from home. The restaurant is dog-friendly and you can bet fur-babies will be licking their lips in glee at the scent of prime ribs on the bbq.
You can pull off the highway and roll right into Oasis Campground for a stopover or place to hang your hat. The drawcard across the road is enough to make folks want to stay and enjoy the small-town feel South Dakota inspires.
