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.
