Nice but high use

Found a site with no problem but clearly this is an RV focused campground. I did find a nice grassy area for my tent but my neighbors aren’t far. The river is nice and the walking trails are ok.

Nice camping, trails

Stayed at a tipi site. Camping was great, room enough for family of 4. Trails were nice, a 5 mile loop. Bison herd viewpoint across the street from campground.

Nice campground with decent Wi-Fi and good cell service

Blue Mounds State Park campground is located on tree-lined paved roads tucked in between a prairie and farmers' fields. It's quite peaceful and relaxing, especially with most sites unoccupied during the week. 

While the sites don't offer a ton of privacy, they are well-spaced for the most part…

Super clean and friendly staff

Beautiful campground! The showers were the cleanest I have ever seen. Hot water and flushing toilets were nice. Campsites had fire rings and picnic tables. Our site was level and easy to drive into. My only complaint is with finding the climbing areas for recreation. That was a bit of a pain, but…

Beautiful prairie park

This is a small but beautiful park on the prairie. We stayed in the cart-in campground as it offered more privacy between campsites compared to the drive in campground. We stayed in site 6, which is down a path way and makes you feel like you are not close to any of your neighbors. The bathrooms in…

Classic SoDak camping destination

Great camping. More of a family destination than anything else. But early season is great for solo travelers. Plenty to do for sure.
