    Camping with humans

    I am a 2 year old chihuahua mix and recently escorted my human to Pierson Ranch Cabin 1 where we spent two nights. I enjoyed kayaking on Yankton Lake and hanging out around the campfire at night. I especially had fun scouting out the chipmunks burrowing around our cabin. Overall, I found the place shady, lots of trees with a great view of the lake.

    Family camping

    This was our first time at Pierson Ranch. It was outstanding for our entire family. The spot we chose had a wonderful area for our kids and pets to play and we had plenty of room to play family games.

    Monday Calm

    We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night. It was relaxing and not busy! Our cabin was clean, cool and comfortable.
