    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.

    So peaceful!

    Right on the edge of a housing development, but could have been in the heart of the country! Nice long, level lots, mainly under trees. Picnic tables, fire rings, no sewer but a dump station at the entrance. Only thing, all sites are back in.

    One of the most relaxing park in South Dakota

    Plenty of open space between campsites which makes a quiet relaxing experience. Close to town for any additional supplies and shopping.The campers around us were great and very friendly.

    Trick or treat

    Love my local state park! I loved that the kids this year went trick or treating through the campground, we try to make this event every year, but thia was great got to decorate camp spot and pass out treats. Really wish it would stay this way instead of the bike trail! Maybe have a campsite deceratin contest to. Please consider doing the same way in 2019!

    Loved it!

    This was our first time at this camp ground, will definitely return. We live close by, however the park gave us the feeling of privacy and seclusion. Extremely impressed!
