    Description


    Big Sioux Recreation Area lies on the banks of South Dakota's Big Sioux River. Close to the cities of Brandon and Sioux Falls, Big Sioux is popular among campers, canoers, history buffs and archers. When the snow flies, groups of snowmobilers gather at the enclosed warming house. Campsites are open from May to October and log cabins can be booked year-round. Reservations can be done quickly and securely on your computer with the convenient online system. Make your selection, then pack up for a great vacation.

    Comfy cabins come with a set of bunk beds, a double bed, table and benches. Outside, you'll find a fire grate, picnic table and delightful scenery. Be sure to bring utensils for outdoor cooking, sleeping bags and bed linens, a cooler for food storage and container for water. RV sites are back-in and there are also tent-only sites. Amenities to make your stay more enjoyable include a playground, picnic shelter, flush toilets and showers. Fishing poles, games and snowshoes can be checked out for use at the park.

    Big Sioux Recreation Area features an archery range and course, an 18-hole disc golf course, a paved bike trail and a dog training area. Among the events at the park are the annual Big Sioux Bustle GPS/Geocaching Race, where teams race to find hidden caches, Spooktacular Trails at Halloween time and the Dutch Oven Gathering potluck. For more activity, notable attractions in the area include Palisades State Park, Pipestone National Monument, the Great Plains Zoo, Huset's Speedway and the Grand Falls Casino.

    no grass

    The campground was nice but no grass around our campspot. It rained and was pure mud around us. We were in spot 9. And the mosquitos ate us alive, even with bug spray on. Seemed like there was lots of traffic thru the grounds at 2 - 2:30am...

    Nice Camp - White Fox

    I spent a couple of nights here in my fifth wheel trailer. While the overall experience was nice, the mosquitos are crazy. Bring lots of repellent. More electric sites would be better. $28.00 + $7.00 fee for basically dry camping is too high!
