Fischers Lilly Park hosts 12 RV pads with electrical outlets, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is also a dump station. The fee is currently $15/night. Water and electric is available at each pad. The park also has playground equipment and a picnic shelter with electrical outlets and bathrooms. A boat ramp can also be found on the park side of the Bad River and the boat ramp off Deadwood St. is accessible to the park by a newly built walking bridge over the Bad River.
The full name of this place is Fischers Lilly Park, operated by the city of Fort Pierre. To correct the previous review, these sites are water/electric (20/30/50A) only, although there is a free dump station on site. These sites are right on the river, and contrary to the previous reviewer we found some of them near the entrance to be exceedingly spacious, including ours #12. There are 12 sites total, and ours was immaculate. Cell signal on Verizon was a solid 3 bars.
The location right on the banks of the Missouri River can't be beat, and it's the perfect location for exploring all that the Pierre area has to offer: the state capitol complex, the museums, even walleye fishing in the river or nearby Lake Oahe. We spent Memorial Day weekend here and loved it -- my wife was wishing that we could stay longer. Even on the holiday weekend the campground was wonderfully quiet and serene.
Many thanks to the City of Fort Pierre for making this location available.
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.
