We got in at about 730pm and pulled up to the office where we were greeted by a really nice young man who got us our camping spot close to the river. ( Please note that no camping spots are ON the river, there is a berm you have to go over and a little field you walk across). We got to our spot which, if you have a huge family or tent, you might have issues, but our little tents and car fit perfectly between the berm and the road.
The campground is quiet, and people are pretty respectful of their neighbors due to the fact the sites are very close together...but that didn't bother us...the way you put your tents and situate the picnic table can give you your own area. We had two dogs with us, as the campground is pup friendly with no fee!
The showers: I didn't feel as if there was a problem with the showers, but I am a night time shower-er and took mine around 9pm, didn't run out of water or anything. The showers are individual rooms so you don't have to worry about people in there with you. It was nice to have a little privacy. Bathroom was abuzz in the morning, but nothing out of the ordinary for people taking off early (6-7am). All in all this was a great place to stop, town and chimney park are a stones throw away, and you get to see the beautiful Little Missouri River. Don't pass up on this experience just because how small the campsites can be. We had a memorable stay, and I believe you will too. You can't beat $20 a night, and we heard the train but it wasn't god awful loud or anything.
