    Description


    Big Sioux Recreation Area lies on the banks of South Dakota's Big Sioux River. Close to the cities of Brandon and Sioux Falls, Big Sioux is popular among campers, canoers, history buffs and archers. When the snow flies, groups of snowmobilers gather at the enclosed warming house. Campsites are open from May to October and log cabins can be booked year-round. Reservations can be done quickly and securely on your computer with the convenient online system. Make your selection, then pack up for a great vacation.

    Comfy cabins come with a set of bunk beds, a double bed, table and benches. Outside, you'll find a fire grate, picnic table and delightful scenery. Be sure to bring utensils for outdoor cooking, sleeping bags and bed linens, a cooler for food storage and container for water. RV sites are back-in and there are also tent-only sites. Amenities to make your stay more enjoyable include a playground, picnic shelter, flush toilets and showers. Fishing poles, games and snowshoes can be checked out for use at the park.

    Big Sioux Recreation Area features an archery range and course, an 18-hole disc golf course, a paved bike trail and a dog training area. Among the events at the park are the annual Big Sioux Bustle GPS/Geocaching Race, where teams race to find hidden caches, Spooktacular Trails at Halloween time and the Dutch Oven Gathering potluck. For more activity, notable attractions in the area include Palisades State Park, Pipestone National Monument, the Great Plains Zoo, Huset's Speedway and the Grand Falls Casino.

    Our Visit

    The park was clean and the surroundings nice. The showers were not working yet, and we had no contact with park employees. There was no one at the booth when we arrived or left.

    Cig buds everywhere

    Our area had some trash still along the ground upon arrival along with a lot of cigarettes buds. Aside from that we enjoyed our stay and found the bathrooms were clean
