Nice campsite for the night

Big open area plenty of space right by the Missouri River. Can camp up to 7 nights. Road in can be a bit of a problem when it’s been raining. Facilities are just a pit toilet. But very peaceful with great sunsets.

Neat location. But the cottonwoods...

This is a great campground on the west band of the Missouri River. Very nice and well kept facilities but beware there are lots of cottonwoods and at times during our stay it looked like it was snowing.

Access to this area is off highway 44 but be prepared for several miles of minimally maintained dirt road (with some big hills) to get there. I'd stay here again but I'd also research when the cottonwoods are not shedding their seeds.

Great little spot

This was a perfect spot about 10 miles south of I-90. There are only two back in rv sites about 35’ long, they each have 30amp. There’s a water spout but it’s a little far from the spots…a 50’ hose might work to fill up. A diner is within walking distance, it’s super quaint with delicious ice cream and fries! This is a great location for an overnight spot.

Fine for a night

Right off the highway was a super convenient location when spending the night while driving. Tent camp is an open field without sites but it was flat and there was plenty of space. TONS of mosquitos though, couldn’t sit outside the tent at all. Bathrooms were good and clean.

Good place to hang out

Great place to hang out by the Missouri River. Cool water and a few shade trees.

Good facilities

Right off of the interstate so easy access. Good camping facilities. Not a great view but there is a pool since there’s no river access.

Good facilities

Good facilities available for use. Perfect views of the river. At the beach there is kayaks and paddle boards available for rent which is the perfect addition to a great campground.

Close to interstate

This is a good stop on your way to the badlands. It s has a pool but the spots are tight.

Clean, quiet, well-maintained

Super helpful and friendly staff, clean bathrooms, well-maintained sites. Gorgeous views of the Missouri River. The only negative was the amazing number of flies. It was hard to cook with the flies diving into our pots and pans and biting us. It was my first trip to South Dakota. Maybe flies are a thing there??

Walk in camping at your own risk: buffalo, storms

The storms in the area just appear. We've gone camping out here twice and both ended very scarey. Beautiful area but also not worth it to go back for a third time. Don't need to die in a storm out there now. Your just very exposed, almost like being on a mountain top.
