Description

Nestled on the shores of Shadehill Reservoir, Shadehill Recreation Area offers opportunities to enjoy land- and water-based activities. The reservoir is one of western South Dakota's few large lakes. The dam, built in 1951 by the Bureau of Reclamation, creates more than 5,000 surface acres of water to enjoy.

Give yourself plenty of time to explore the area by reserving a campsite, cabin or the two-bedroom lodge. Planning your stay is easy when you use the online system. The two-bedroom lodge at Shadehill Recreation Area is a favorite for family retreats and hunting groups. The furnished lodge sleeps up to 10 people and is air-conditioned and heated. It can be reserved a year in advance. The cabins, which accommodate four people, also have heating, air conditioning, electricity and a fire grate and picnic table outside. Campsites all come with electricity and access to comfort stations with showers and flush toilets.

To take advantage of the large inviting lake at Shadehill Recreation Area, guests may hit the beach, use the boat ramp and fish for walleye, smallmouth bass and crappie. The town of Lemmon, 12 miles away, is home to the Petrified Wood Park and Museum and the annual Boss Cowman Rodeo and Tent Celebration.

This is our 6th year coming here and I would highly recommend these cabins to everyone! Bring a variety of clothes as the weather is always changing and a mattress pad as the beds are little hard!!

This is a great campground. Every site is a good one, each has plenty of room with level parking areas and privacy. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. The caretaker comes around several times a day. The only thing that would make it better would be water hookup, but the hydrants are well spaced so hauling water is not an issue, just an inconvenience.
