“Nice hiking, right on the water, and not too far from town”

Reviewed Oct 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here to visit the state capital. It was near the end of tourist season, and the weather was starting to get chilly. Thus, our campsite was not crowded at all, with the exception of a couple people who say there long term. Everything worked fantastic. We did not utilize the shower facilities in the next lot over, so we have no review on that, but would say that it's worth it to stay in the further lot with a vault toilet. Nice, quite and peaceful! Our dog Sydney loved walking the island, but would say bring some bug spray.

“Two camping areas just east of Pierre, SD Nice and quiet”

Reviewed May 26, 2016

Overall Rating

There are two camping areas at Farm Island. West has 70 spots and east has 20. Sites have lots of space with good spacing between the sites. 20/30/50amp service. Water and Dump also available. $19 plus daily fee and any reservation costs.

Area is very quiet. Saw lots of folks birding. Some sites are directly on the Missouri River. Mix of Shade and No Shade sites. East section appears to be much quieter.

Verizon was only 3 bars but totally rocked. Some of the highest speeds I have ever seen. The following is not a typo.

East campground 3 bars 85.46/32.49 Mbps down/up

Yep 85Mbps. Better than my cable at home :)
