| Nice swimming, and quiet

It's a big place and was very quiet when we were there (mid-week, mid-July). Some sites face onto the lake (a.k.a. river). Showers were hot & clean. Nice people on check in.

| Right on the beach!

Dump station and potable water avail. on your way out. 20/30/50 amp elect. at ypur site. There are 2 loops. 1st, larger loop is right on the shore of "Hippie Lake"...which is actually a bay on the Missouri River. Big shade tree to sit under, and swimming right from your site. 2nd loop is smaller, and in a lovely grove of trees. Camp hosts on site. Beautiful, well kept sites!

| Nice Campground!

Stayed at site #44E in a motorhome with a toad. No pull thru but lots of places to detach and the sites are deep and wide and level. Power but no water or sewer at the sites so plan ahead! Would have given 4 stars if water was available at the site. Friendly check in for our reservation. We would be happy to stay here again.

| Great campground!

We are returning from a trip to the Black hills and this was one of the few that still had a spot available. The campgrounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The bathrooms and showers are new and well kept (although did have an odd smell in them). We are in site #37 which is right on the water. There is a beach right in front of us where our kiddos can go swimming. The site has a firepit with a metal picnic table. They provided 20, 30, and 50 amp service. The spot is a large gravel spot with some shade trees around. We could even launch our kayaks from our site if we brought them. There are some level, paved trails around the park and through some prairie land with some other activities such as archery, fishing, and boating. It is close to the town of Pierre.
