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.

I grew up on Lake Sakakawea in ND and am very fond of these so called "prairie oasis", so was elated to find Shadehill and was by far not disappointed. We stayed here while harvesting in Bison SD and enjoyed every second we were there. We will be returning.

Recently my family rented 5 campsites and one cabin for our annual family reunion at Shadehill Reservoir. We absolutely love being together in our home town area. Would love to have another lodge built as that is the ideal place for us, but we had a great 4 days.
