FAMIL-E-FUN CAMPGROUND, MITCHELL, SD – Camp 19
After our brief stay in Wall, SD we headed more to the east to another destination we had enjoyed so much in 2006. Our destination was Mitchell,SD.
Our chosen campground this trip was Famil-E-Fun Campground.
We enjoyed our stay there. The couple running the park were friendly and helpful. The facilities were all clean and well maintained.
There was free wi-fi in the laundry room that extended to the benches outside of the laundry room. The park manager guided us to our spot where we were able to pull thru with ease. Complete hook-ups with 50 amp service were the order of the day. Once discounts and taxes were included our rate was $27.50 per night for the four nights we were there.
It was a little more than the national and state parks, but then it had more to offer. We felt the rate was reasonable for the accommodations.
The sites are set up where they are double front to back sites, but during the off season they park only one rig per site, which makes it a pull thru.
Once again we were greeted with a beautiful sunset. It seemed like everyone in the campground was out snapping photos of it.
There were three sites we wanted to visit in the area. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead, the Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village, and of course the Corn Palace.
We had previously visited the last two in 2006, but enjoyed them so much we decided to visit them again. Of course they will each get their own write up to help keep this post from being too long.
All three were an easy drive from Famil-E-Fun Campground. The expressway get on is not far from the campground, but traffic noises were not a problem. It worked out to be the perfect four night stay spot for us while we were there.
If we should venture to Mitchell again we both agree that this would probably be the place we would stay.
