We were searching for a place to land for the night and after a couple of failed attempts at other places, decided to come here. Sites (many with lake views) are spacious and very reasonably priced ($22 for electric/water and$30 for full hookup). Mid-week was very quiet and peaceful; I imagine that a weekend, especially in the summer might be a different experience. The bathroom was very clean. Didn’t use the shower but were warned by the host that the hot/cold faucets were backward. Awesome sunsets! A nearby veterans memorial is very touching. The only complaint was no recycling bins.
Wonderful campground! Very well kept with the grass cut and shower/bath houses cleaned and maintained often. Everyone is very friendly from the staff to the fellow campers. Sites are available on a first come basis and sites are usually available during the week but fills up by the weekend especially holiday weekends or popular camping weekends. The lake is right there and has a wonderful beach area. Also, there is a great Veteran's Memorial on the north edge and an easy walk to it.
Located on Lake Kampeska near Watertown off I-29 in eastern SD. We stayed on site 1 which is a long pull thru with a distant view of the sizeable lake. There are about 70 non-reservable sites all with W/E (50A), a couple of playgrounds, one dumpstation, a boat launch and an impressive Veterans Memorial. The roads are paved while the sites are dirt/gravel.
A few large trash bins spread throughout the cg with bins for drink cans for Disabled American Veterans.
