    Description

    Right off Highway 52, Pierson Ranch Recreation Area provides easy access to picnic shelters and campsites. In addition, the large day-use area serves as an excellent facility for hosting family reunions and large group picnics. Reserving a spot for overnight camping is quick and easy with the online system.

    Pierson Ranch Recreation Area offers campsites with electricity as well as camping cabins that sleep four people. Cabins come with a set of bunk beds, double bed, tables and benches. For outdoor dining, there is a picnic table and fire grate. Campground amenities include showers and flush toilets, playground, dump station and tennis court. The kitchenette picnic shelter can also be rented.

    Pierson Ranch opened in 1959 and is the oldest campground in the area. It was the first campground to be constructed after Gavins Point Dam was completed. Located between Chief White Crane and Lewis and Clark recreation areas, visitors can take advantage of a wide variety of recreation opportunities in all three parks.

    "Back in Only"

    My primary frustration with this camping experience was the park ranger's insistence on back-in parking only for my 19' conversion van. He made me pull out and re-park because not doing so would create a risk that I would hit a post while pulling out. Interestingly, if he had allowed me to remain parked as I had been, there would have been 2 fewer instances of my pulling out and in again, with less opportunity for me to hit the post in question. I understand rules, but this was a bit ridiculous, especially because the pickup in the space next to mine was parked front-in (though its camper was backed in). No comment from ranger on that!
