A little way from town. Roads were pretty good to get there. Rustic site but settled on a nice lake. Stay limit is 14 days. We were there overnight and were completely alone. Very quiet. Could tell that it was a good spot for bird hunters. We stayed there on a Monday and noticed that it had been busy over the weekend. Would stay again.
Driving down muddy, rural roads brought up thoughts of this year’s extra snow and rain totals. It’s nice to immerse yourself in the results to open viewpoints.
Michael met me and walked me over to the camp area- after letting his 3 dogs greet me. He has a large gravel lot with an electric hookup. He spent time leveling it off so set up was a breeze. Nobody was staying in the guest house so we were able to use a bathroom that reminds me of a fancy hotel.
Looking around you find yourself surrounded by farm life. An old barn houses a group of cats. Hay is in this one for their horses to add to their diet. The land goes forever and life slows down.
Michael walked over with his dogs and invited me to walk the property line. This ended up being a couple hours of education and conversation. Michael has worked with government programs to make portions of this retired farm natural grasslands. He planted rows of cedars, plums, chokecherry and pear to attract pheasants- deer appreciate it too. He showed me his endless battle with wormwood crowding out the native species. Water formed a lake where there never is one and almost flooded out their neighbor. Lazy Sy is elevated but they are still fighting the water off this year. My dog found companionship with the farm dogs and we felt welcome and right at home.
Besides walking around the farm, we stopped in town right on the Missouri River. There are a number of restaurants and stores as well as a few State Recreation Areas to explore.
Our stay was very comfortable and easy. Welcomed into another lifestyle, conversation bridged the gap quickly. You will love this simple slowdown of life.
Nice little campground mainly geared towards fishing. Heavy early morning traffic due to this being the only access to the lake for miles. Clean and well taken care of. Free showers that are well cared for with very hot water. Will be back!
A nice, small, lightly sheltered campground just north of Isabel, South Dakota. Campground on north side of lake has a dock, boat ramp and small beach area for wading in. Also has picnic benches, small shelter and fire pit. There is also a second dock on the south side of the lake and a shooting range to the north of the campground. Just off of Highway 65, its a great, wide open lake with a couple back water spots. You can speed around tubing or troll over to one of the shores for some fishing.
Isabel has 2 gas stations, a great restaurant in Sparky's Bar and Grill and an RV park. Can catch their summer rodeo the first weekend of August.
The campground and reservoir is nestled away in the wooded hillls south of Timber Lake, SD. Campsites and shelters are spread out along the southern and eastern sides of the water. Little clearings along hillsides with plenty of shade from tree cover. The dam is a nice place to go canoeing, boating or you can do a little bit of swimming near the dock, though there isn't a great 'beach' like area.
There's a couple of campsites right across the road from the main dock. Or you can get further away from the water with sites farther up the road closer to the entrance. ATV trails in the hills surrounding the area.
