    Three separate areas in Richmond Lake Recreation cater to the needs of campers, swimmers, naturalists, boaters and anglers. Campers stay in the South Unit, while the 200-acre Forest Drive Unit is a great place for wildlife viewing. The Boat Ramp Unit provides access to the more than 1,000-acre lake.

    Reserving a spot to camp overnight is simple using the online system. A few clicks of the mouse enables you to choose a site in the campground that matches your needs. Campsites with electricity are available, and the one-room camping cabin is equipped with heating and air conditioning and sleeping space for four people. Campers can avail themselves of the comfort station's showers and flush toilets and dump station.

    On the grounds of Richmond Lake Recreation Area is a fun disc golf course, fishing dock, picnic shelter, playground, boat ramp and beach. Plenty of walleye, northern pike, bass, perch, crappie, bluegill, catfish and bullheads fill the lake. Around the area, short trips can take your to the Dacotah Prairie Museum, Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge and Mina Lake Recreation Area.

    Beautiful and private and clean

    We are from Colorado. This was our first summer visit to Aberdeen and the Richmond Campground. We think there is not a bad site in the place. Our site, 4E, had quite a lot of trees and bushes surrounding it. It felt like we were in the forest, but we weren't. What a pleasant surprise, especially in what we thought would be a very flat and "bland" experience compared to the mountains we are used to! The bathrooms and showers were very accessible and clean. The hosts were super friendly and the lake is lovely. My only negative was that I called the State Park a couple of weeks before arrival to ensure there was really a shower available. I never got a return call. The rest was fabulous!! Would definitely return! Thank you SD and Aberdeen!

    I love Richmond

    We love Richmond. The park has so much to offer! I do however wish that the camp sites allowed for 2 small tents on one camp site.
