Fun at the park

We had a great time with two grand kids. We stayed Sunday through Wednesday. It was a little cool but we enjoyed the wild life, disc golf, bike trail,and the fish aquarium and fish hatchery. We saw several different kinds of birds, turkeys,rabbits, squirrels,and deer. The beauty of the lake and cliffs across the lake make for a neat place to relax. Thanks

love this park

We have been camping here for over 25 years and have seen many changes in the park and our family. we started camping with grade school age children and now camp with grandchildren. We started camping in a tent, then a pop-up camper, then a travel trailer and now have a travel trailer with slide outs. We love the park and the bike trails, the beaches and the bathrooms with flush toilets and warm water for showers. We have gone through four different boats and taught several children to water ski. The only problem now is getting reservations because camping is so popular. We shop in Yankton, buy ice cream near by , go go-cart racing and dine-out at several favorite resturants.
