Army Corps Campground with all the bells and whistles. It was closed when we went, but we will return. The interpretive center was very informative and Lewis and Clark Lake is huge with nice beaches and great fishing.
The ranger said that electric sites in season were only $16. That is less than the state parks at the lake. Yankton is nice but don't miss the Nebraska tribal museums.
This campground has seen huge improvements over the last decade. They now sport an impressive set of cabins and other facilities for the 21st century camper. Tent camping continues to be available and has better privacy than many sites throughout Nebraska. The park isn't far from a small town where you can easily get anything you might need for your trip. Explore some of the activites that staff hold weekly or go take a hike! There's also playgrounds and a pool for the kids.
Scenic Park Campground is in South Sioux City along the Missouri River. Our campsite had a river view, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground is part of a large park and was full hookups with cable and wifi included. Our site was a pull through. The area was clean and had a nice appearance. There was also 4 unique modern looking cabins and a tent area.
The park also has tennis courts, soccer fields, and baseball fields. There is a swimming pool and playgrounds, along with trails. The trails I loved were along the river. The only con was that There was a major highway on the other side of the river and ambulances would pass by with sirens going. Otherwise a nice campground.
It's a very small campground with a variety of different types of sites. Easy to access. Lots of great hiking trails. The hosts are very kind and helpful.
Most of this open campground is devoted to RV's, most are unoccupied during the week. There are only 4 tent sites on the south edge of the area, the acreage is covered with tall cottonwood trees which provide partial sun/shade but no privacy. There is a short trail which goes down to the Missouri River. There was a pit latrine in the tent area and two shower houses in the RV sections. Tent fee $10 per night
Deer Ridge campground is 1 of 3 campgrounds within Hillview Rec area. It is the most popular one of the 3, it has flat sites with access to shower house and running water and 30 amp hookups. There is plenty of hiking trails, a pond for fishing or swimming, an Elk herd, 2 picnic shelters, an outdoor learning center, horseshoe pit, sand volleyball court, 2 playgrounds, and plenty of grills and picnic spots and in the winter a tubing hill. They also have 2 cabins as well.
We ended up at the Trailwater site because of a overbooking at lewis and clark. The afternoon was pleasant but as soon as it started to get dark all of the camp squatters started to arrive. First, about 9:30 PM, a group with several small children arrived and they were running all over the place crying screaming. The adults didn't seam to care and for some reason kept locking their car repeatedly. Beep, Beep, honk!This continued until about midnight when the children passed out. Then at 1:15 AM a large group with about 15 adults, several children, 2 dogs, 6 trucks and a boat arrived. They proceeded to set up their 6 tends even right next to ours and in front of our fire ring as if they were sharing it with us. They were loud and intoxicated. The yelling and commotion continued. They were carrying on as if it were the middle of the day. At 3:15 AM I asked if they could quite it down. I was met with hostility and and was told that they did not give a F@%*. Then they proceeded to mock and insult us in spanish. We felt very intimidated and scared for our safety. Needless to say we packed up our camp all wile being jeered and insulted and drive 2.5 hrs back home. DONT TENT CAMP HERE. We will never stay at this campground again.
Lots of campsites with lake views, swimming beaches and bike trails as well as water equipment rental in the area.
Great campground with lots of shade trees and plenty of space between spots! Great fishing and swimming too!
There isn’t a lot to choose from around the Sioux Falls area. There are plenty of trails and clean restrooms to use. Overall we really like this location. Some of the sites are pretty close together though.
camped here a lot growing up, always had a good time. great area close to town but quiet by the river.
Sugh a great place to camp! Normally some.grounds seem over crowded in the summer, but not here!
Lots of trails, a little man made lake and a playground in the park for the kids. Beautiful hills and scenery and so quiet! You would never guess that it was right off of the highway, but the campsite itself is nestled away deep into the park itself! A great place to go for a very low price
Every time I visit, whether spring, summer or fall, there are activities boundless. Good for biking, hiking, nature watching, fishing, kayaking, archery etc. The scenery is stunning and wonderful views of the bluffs. Clean campgrounds and many to choose from. Wonderful RV camp hosts.
Its a great place to go with friends. Theres not a lot of noise after dark. Enjoy views of the lake
This park was amazing! We spent labor day weekend there 3 years in a row. Huge cabins that were clean and ready to go. Trails were super close so kids could explore while I made dinner and cleaned up. Tons of activities, we went kyaking, kids did crafts, and a couple of us went to a class on dutch ovens. We would definitely go back.
This park has had a lot of upgrades in the past few years— I would say it now appeals to those looking more for “glamping”. The new cabins look much like houses and although I’ve not been in them, appear to even have cable. IMO if you need something that fancy you’re missing the point but to each his own! We found a few “hike in” spots but they were not more than .25 miles from trailheads. The park has a lot to offer and there are some fun trails that lead to good views. if you’re looking for long hikes you’ll be making a lot of circles back and forth across roads.
This campground sits about 100 yards from the Gavins Point Dam and right next to Lake Yankton. Campers are close to gas stations, mini golf, rental facilities, and restaurants. The campground contains a disc golf course, playground and restrooms. The campground is named for the large amount of cottonwood trees, so be prepared to get cotton all over.
This beautiful campground has a bike trail that connects all the beaches. It has hiking trails, parks, and a georgous lake for swimming or boating. The sites are electric only and sites get booked fast. If it is during peak season, you want to reserve a site 90 days in advance. We have been to this campground many times and it is one of our faves.
