Easy stop over spot in Pierre

We happened upon this while up for a wedding in Pierre. It is a free campground! There are RV and tent sites, a dump station, water fill up, bathrooms, and even a park. The tent sites are right on the river and there is even a beach that you can hang out at. You are right on the Lewis and Clark Trail for riding. 

The tent sites are pretty secluded for it being a city park. It was a little noisy at night but it was perfect for waking up in the morning and watching the clouds flow over the river with a cup of coffee in hand.

Beautiful spacious campground

We stayed here 2 nights in September and rode motorcycle through the Badlands/Custer State Park during the day. Few trees, but the newly planted ones will soon offer more shade. Very roomy sites so you’re not right on top of each other. Camped along the river- fishing/swimming access right from the campsite. Hands down best shower/bathroom facilities I’ve ever seen in a state park. We have a small enclosed trailer, so was nice to have electric. Always haul our water- good as none on site. Dump station and water in park, but not at sites.

Very well kept.

The lawns are very well maintained. The shower and bathrooms are impeccable. The beach and playgrounds are great. Shade is a commodity very hard to find. However, in about fifteen years ample trees have been planted that this problem should be corrected. Staff are accommodating and friendly. Great kIckback park because little else to do. Water is only at dump station, the shower house, or two hydrants located in the park. A great one nighter.

Friendly & Clean Campground

We love going to Oahe Downstream Campground every year. We have camped in both Campgrounds. Campground # 2 is closer to the river so it feels much cooler than Campground 1. Lots of things  to enjoy if you have kids or even Teens.  They have a 18 hole Disc Golf coarse . Bring your bikes because you can ride to the trailrace area or around the campgrounds.  There are other biking & hiking areas with in the area and Pierre Sd. You can go kayak or visit the beautiful Butterfly garden. If you love to camp in the fall this is the place beautiful foliage and always quiet.

Good stop over

Quaint little park with clean rr's. They have a great field out back to walk the dog and staff was nice

Riverside camping near town

At the meeting of the Missouri River and the Bad River a small campground is found. Sites are close together and in the sun but there are full hookups. A spacious park is next door. The bike path leads into historic Fort Pierre and beyond. Museums await you as you explore Lewis and Clark’s stopover. This is an ok place to camp but being near town and the beautiful river and bike path make this a nice possibility.

Nice little stop over

We stopped for 1 note on the way west to Mt. Rushmore. It is a nice little park with a friendly staff that likes to show folks the garden. Ultra clean RR's and showers with nice tile and woodwork. Definitely a stop over as Presho is a 1 horse town!

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.
