Spent a hot night-back to reality. Had to leave by 6:00 a,m. Thought we would stop at a rest area to take a nap. No more rest areas in Missouri or truck lanes to pull over. Didn't see another rest area until we reached Arkansas about 350 miles away.

Lake Vermillion State Park

Exit 374-(5 miles south of I-90.) What can I say Beautiful, Beautiful. I would definitely stay here again. Next time a lot longer. The people were extra friendly and helpful. The cost was great $22.00 but since we were not South Dakota residence we also had to pay a $6.00 fee for day pass. There were 6 dump stations as you exited in a great location. We had only electric but we didn't need water since our tanks were full.Plenty of space and very shaded. 

Southern Hills RV and Campground

Lots of over the air channels and great wi-fi, cell service. Spot #10. Should have been a pull thru but they asked us to unhook our jeep to make it easier to get in. Should have asked for one on the front side. Picky about the grass and they had shepard hooks everywhere I suppose to help people to keep off the grass when exiting. Drive-In Theatre next door, really rustic. The place was nice and clean. Gravel spots.

Rex Hale USDA National Forest Campground

Had spot #3 close to pit toilet and close to camp host. No TV stations. No dump station. No wi-fi. No cell service. But it was a beautiful spacious place with mountains and close to the Shoshone River where you could fish. About 15 miles from Yellowstone east entrance. Camp host has an emergency land line. We had to travel 10 miles toward Cody to get a cell signal. The camp hosts were very friendly. 38 miles to Cody, Wyoming where there is lots to do including a Rodeo. The hosts are Gene and Kay they have hosted here for 8 years.

Boulder County Fairgrounds

We paid $20.00 for electric only. If you want Electric and Water it's $25.00 and primitive is $15.00. No tent camping was allowed. It's all automated and you have to have the exact change because the machines do not give change. The people attending the grounds were very unfriendly and not at all helpful. You are only allowed to stay there 14 days in a calendar year. The campground was crowded and on a first come basis. No reservations. The spots were small. There were over 50 over the air TV stations. No wi-fi. Great Mountain Views. A very large town and lots of traffic.
