Very nice small airport. Food service is lacking and expensive. But for a quick flight out of town, very nice.
Arrived at RAP, I was surprised by the number of people in the departure area. Baggage claim was easy waited about 10 minutes for our bags. I would recommend for first time visitors to take the time to go out on the observation deck for the beautiful view. Nice gift shop and restaurant are available along with rental cars.
Super easy to go through, small, only 6 gates. Clean. It's organized well and since it's not a high volume airport, it has plenty of room to not feel overwhelmed with people. There is a food court area with to go food, packaged goods and a place to sit. From the security to the support people, everyone is super friendly. Not too many direct flights but Minneapolis is an hour flight away, so it's a convenient connection hub.
quick and easy to get around in. Rental car and baggage claim was very quick. friendly staff. Parking is very close and super cheap.
Due to flight cancellations, I ended up being re-routed through Rapid City Regional Airport in South Dakota. This was my first ever trip there, and I have never visited a smaller airport than here. It has a total of 6-gates. There is one restaurant and one shop. I needed some food, so I purchased a chicken club wraps that was actually pretty decent. The staff was understaffed and over worked although they did try to deal with everyone respectfully. The food there is extremely expensive like a major city airport where my sandwich and fries with drink was $24. I could not see who was a bartender so I could not get a drink which was why they lost a star. When it came time to boarding the flight it was relatively smooth, and I was in/out of the airport in 2 1/2 hours on schedule. I would suggest that you do not rely on this airport for food and that you bring your food with you. I made that mistake and I needed something to eat. Other than that, I would at that it was a relatively pleasant experience all-in-all.
A small airport that handles large crowds pretty well. Tourists will come in droves, get cars, transportation, etc , then exit leaving the airport like a ghost town until the next plane load arrives. But as traveling opens up, this airport may get overwhelmed. Overall nicely laid out and easy to navigate.
Great small airport with 7 gates. Short lines and nice people. Food is more cafeteria style. Gift shop prices are high as expected. Nice people.
Undergoing some renovations Sept 2020
Very easy to get around. Not many options for drinks or food. I was literally off my plane and out the door in 15 minutes. Great!
Pretty small airport(which I love) No issues encountered during my visit. And the food place and the gift/snack shop inside of the terminal was open at 5am! Better than major airports. Definitely didn't expect anything to be opened.
