“Not bad for South Dakota”

Free camping seems difficult to come by in these parts so I'm grateful to have found this place. It's one large parking lot near the dock with a dumpster and a bathroom. The dumpster got emptied Monday morning. I can only hope the toilet will be emptied very soon.... Bring your own toilet paper. I stayed on a Sunday night and there wer... more

“Great free spot, great connectivity”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a great spot. We were there on a Monday, and there was only one other person parked there. It’s free and has a clean vault toilet and a dumpster. Cell signal was really good on both our AT&T and Verizon hot spots. Verizon was insanely fast, 125 mbps down and 5-8 mbps up, and that’s without a booster or antennae.

Great site with toilet and garbage.
We stayed the evening of July 3rd and there were about 10 other campers with room for more had they showed.
Nice little beach with a boat landing & dock.
Clean place with the hills as your backdrop.

“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... more
