“Great free camping! ”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2018

Overall Rating

A few miles off the highway you'll find a great free camping area suitable for big rigs. There is a low clearance bridge around 14ft and about 2.5 miles of well maintained dirt road to get there. It's a large gravel lot on the Missouri River.

You can camp up to 7 days, there is a dumpster and vault toilet. No water, electric or dump. Verizon was good for remote work and streaming easily on AT&T without boosters or antennas. Close to Chamberlain if you wanted to explore a bit.

While we were there we had a severe thunderstorm with hail and while the lot got muddy, we had no problem getting out. However, if you park down by the river it may get a bit flooded or muddy. A small ravine opened up with a slight flood and trapped an RV in down by the water. If you stay up on the large gravel section you will have no problem.
