“Excellent state park”

Reviewed Sep 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We are full time, domiciled in South Dakota. For our 3 night stay, we didn’t need water/sewer, just 50A. I dinged it one star for site quality because it's not full-hookup, then added it back because of the price. We also wanted to be close to Dakota Post, our mail forwarder. This park is more than perfect. There was easy access for ou... more

“A surprisingly great park.”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2018

Needed a stop over on our way home and found this park thanks to other Campendium reviews. What a great place. First impressions had me worried as it is right next to a housing development. But once inside the park, it's all trees and pretty nature. The staff is exceptional, they actually came out to my car to check us in for the night... more

“Great Spot for our needs”

Reviewed Jun 08, 2018

Overall Rating

Big Sioux meet our needs for a stay in Sioux Falls. Sites were spaced far enough apart but we did not have neighbors near us in this very lightly used park. Bike path within parks lead to lightly used roads. Access to Falls Park was easy via a car and bike path around that area was great. Staff at check in were young, but friendl... more

“Too expensive for an overnight stop”

Reviewed May 22, 2018

Overall Rating

You think you've found a deal with $21 electric only, but it's really $36 after they nickle and dime you. Between tax, a nearly $8 non-resident fee and then they hit you for $6 cash at the gate to get in, you end up at $36 for 1 night with electric only. It's a beautiful park, but just be aware that you're not going to pay the low adve... more

“Beautiful level spot with friendly neighbors”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2017

Overall Rating

This little campground was a wonderful find. We were there on a weeknight, so it was not crowded at all. Our campsite was beautiful, backed up to a cycling trail and not far from the river. We had full hookups.

“Great campground close to Sioux Falls ”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Sioux Falls is a great town, worth an extended visit. The Sculpturewalk (in the summertime) was a highlight and the streets were lined with interesting shops. Falls park and the biking and canoeing were an added bonus. The campground is tucked between River, farms and housing developments. Sites are level and fairly private. Clean s... more

“Nice campground near Sioux Falls and Big Sioux River”

Reviewed May 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a well kept clean campground with good spacing between the site. Most of the sites, including ours, had varying amounts of shade. Our site and the majority of the others were level enough not to need blocks. All of the sites are gravel and most were large enough to fit our motorhome and tow vehicle. The road through the ca... more

Really liked this park. Wish the weather had cooperated so that we could explore. It was cold and wet. Each site has electricity, picnic table and fire pit. There's grass and trees between each site. The trees are not so full to completely block the sun but would offer plenty of shade in the summer. This was a free weekend s... more

Spots are pretty private and theres a pretty nice bike trail! and multiple playgrounds! This was a nice place to settle in after driving from the Badlands. Wish I could have stayed another night! Very clean and sites were nice and wide to park into.

“Great place to stay when passing through Sioux Falls”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2015

Overall Rating

We really enjoyed our stay here as we made our way across South Dakota. The campground is easily accessed off I-90 and has nicely sized, well-maintained sites with electric hookups. A bike path follows the Big Sioux River. We stayed mid-week and the campground was nearly empty.
