    Custer, South Dakota

    Anyone who has camped at Sylvan Lake campground in South Dakota’s Custer State Park knows that Black Hills camping doesn’t get much better than this. Sylvan Lake Campground is one of eight designated campgrounds in Custer State Park, and one of the best public land destinations for camping in the Black Hills of southwest South Dakota. The region’s expanse of dense forests, rolling prairies and granite mountain peaks (the very same peaks that were used to form Mount Rushmore) offer photo-snapping tourists and laced-up explorers alike a chance to dive into the ecology of the American West.

    For campers looking for a comfortable and convenient basecamp for diving into the region’s scenery and activities, Sylvan Lake campground is the place to be for many reasons. First, the 40-site campground offers access to the popular swimming spot of Sylvan Lake, where campers might feel inclined to spend their entire stay on the rocky beach of this scenic body of water. There’s also access to multiple hiking trails, suitable for all skill levels, including a trail that takes you to the curious and beautiful Black Elk Peak, the highest summit-able point east of the Rocky Mountains. Both a family-friendly spot and a hardcore adventurer’s playground, Sylvan Lake is Black Hills camping for everyone.

    Welcome to Center Lake Campground in Custer State Park, South Dakota. Nestled near the city of Custer, this campground is a gem for families and nature lovers alike. Open from April 29 to September 30, it offers a serene escape with plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained.

    The campground features picnic tables, fire rings, and clean restrooms. While there are no electric hookups, you’ll find drinking water and firewood available. Pets are welcome, and you can enjoy a campfire under the stars. The highlight here is Center Lake, perfect for swimming, fishing, and non-motorized boating. If you’re into hiking, there are trails nearby that offer stunning views and abundant wildlife.

    One thing to note is that reservations are same-day only, which is great if you’re the spontaneous type. Just remember, it costs $20 to enter the park. The campground is divided into two loops, with the upper loop offering slightly more space between sites. The tent-only section is a walk-in area, providing a bit more seclusion.

    Visitors have praised the friendly staff and the peaceful atmosphere. The roads are paved, and while the driveways are somewhat level, there’s not much privacy between sites. However, the natural beauty and the sound of the creek nearby make up for it. Showers are available near the lake, and they even have hot water.

    For families with kids, the Toca Life APK game is a hit, offering endless entertainment and educational value. So, pack your bags, grab your tent or RV, and head over to Center Lake Campground for a memorable outdoor adventure.

    Angostura Recreation Area near Hot Springs, SD, is a solid spot for camping all year round. This place has a bit of everything, from electric hookups to picnic tables, and it's pet-friendly too. If you're into boating, fishing, or just lounging by the lake, you'll find plenty to do here. The sunsets are something else—definitely worth sticking around for.

    The campground has a mix of tent, RV, cabin, and even glamping accommodations. The Cascade section is popular, especially on weekends, and offers great lake access and clean facilities. Just a heads-up: the bugs can be a nuisance, so pack some citronella candles or bug spray.

    Some visitors have mentioned that the sites are spacious and well-shaded, which is a blessing during the hot summer days. The marina isn't far from the tent sites, making it convenient if you're bringing a boat. There's also a nice bike trail that runs along the camping areas, perfect for a morning ride or a leisurely walk by the water.

    The Cheyenne Campground offers decent tree coverage and isn't too crowded. It's got a beach, biking trail, marina, and even a restaurant. The bathhouse is clean with big showers, which is always a plus.

    If you're looking for a quieter spot, Sheps Canyon offers primitive camping right by the Angostura Reservoir. It's $11 a night now, but the views and proximity to the water make it worth it.

    Overall, Angostura Recreation Area is a great place to unwind, enjoy nature, and maybe catch a fish or two. Just be prepared for the bugs and you'll have a fantastic time.

    Overview

    Located less than 1 mile north of Hot Springs, South Dakota sits one of the area's most perferred campgrounds. At the south end of Cold Brook Campground sits Cold Brook Lake, a popular destination for those looking to take a swim at the beach, snorkel in the crystal clear water or wet a line while trying to catch a variety of fish species. At the north end of the campground sits a wildlife area with a two-track trail that is good for a morning stroll or a short bike ride with the possibility of seeing wildlife.

    Recreation

    Cold Brook Lake is about 33 acres in size and it provides a quiet opportunity to wet a line and possibly catch a large mouth bass, northern pike, catfish, carp, rainbow trout, or various pan fish. Canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, or any other small non-gas motorized boat can commonly be seen on the lake. As the summer heats up, the beach tends to be a popular hangout for both locals and tourists. The non-motorized two-track path in the wildlife area is a great spot for a short hike or letting pets enjoy being off a leash. Other popular outdoor recreational opportunities include picnicking, playing at the playground, wildlife viewing, photography, and archery hunting. Archery hunting is permitted in designated areas only and both hunting and fishing regulations are established and enforced by the State of South Dakota.
