We stayed for several nights. Our spot was private even though we were right next to the trail. Everything was clean though after the weekend (we arrived on a Monday) the trash dumpsters were overflowing. Our last evening there we were treated to the sight of several hot air balloons taking off and flying over our campsite.

Very nice, very clean, really inexpensive. We pulled in, called the reservation number posted and everything went very smoothly. Because we called same day there was no reservation fee normally charged to out of staters. With electric the total cost tax included was $20.05

What a beautiful park to camp in for a few days. If it had full hookups I might never leave. Large sites, lots of trees, very spacious sites. Electric only. You would never realize that it’s here driving past the school and neighborhood. Reservations will get you in quicker. We did not realize this because the website was not clear about that. But, there is a phone at front gate to call and make them if you haven’t already. Someone complained about ticks. Well it’s my opinion that you are in the woods, you should have your dogs tick and flea protection and maybe camping is not right for you. we live in our 40 ft Motorhome and found this the perfect place. But highly recommend you calling for reservations first. Camp host very friendly and helpful. Will be back.

Reserve on line and time of arrival does not matter! They also have an 800 number! Knats are sometimes brutal! Bug spray helps a little. Would definitely stay here again! Only one camp site didn’t know what “light pollution” is !

| Very nice park

This park has large lots for camping. There's a clean bathroom with hot showers. We enjoyed the sounds of birds throughout the day and frogs in the evening. We got a few pictures of Cardinals and Blue Jays.

Lovely park with several sites backing right up to the Big Sioux River. Even though the river was flooding when we stayed, CG was secure. Bath house very clean, great hot water. Sites around 40E are most spacious State park has an entrance fee of $6 on top of camp reservation; would prefer they just include it in resv fees Only downside is the park is just at the edge of a residential area, so access is somewhat cramped if coming in from I-90 Definitely would stay again

We stayed here two nights the end of July 2019. Sites are electric, no water at campsite but available. Large shady, private sites. With the $7.70 non resident fee and the $6 entrance fee the site was around $30 per night. Lots of hiking, disc golf, archery course, bike trails, and canoe launch. The Big Sioux was up so some of the trails were under water.
