    Description

    Situated on the rolling prairie bluffs, the east and west campgrounds at Swan Creek Recreation Area provide anglers the opportunity to stay overnight. Two ramps offer access to Lake Oahe for boating and fishing fun. Swan Creek, nine miles west of the town of Akaska, is one of the South Dakota state parks along the Lewis and Clark Trail.

    Before you bait your hook, get on the computer to book a site using the convenient online reservation system. Select either a basic site or one with electricity, then let your getaway to Swan Creek begin. Lake Oahe is packed with walleye, smallmouth bass, white bass, northern pike and perch. After bringing in your catch, use the fish-cleaning station to prepare for some fine dining.

    If you'd like to explore other state parks around the area, West Whitlock Recreation Area features a replica of an Arikara earth lodge, a reminder of the many lodges that the Lewis and Clark expedition saw as they traveled the area. Indian Creek Recreation Area offers more than 2.5 miles of hiking and biking trails over land explored by Lewis and Clark in 1804. And Revheim Bay Recreation Area is a great place to hold a family reunion, company picnic or to spend a relaxing day.

    We were told that we could not bring firewood but there was no firewood to buy. Had to drive into Akaska to get it. The facilities were not cleaned as often as we felt they should've been. I understand with COVID things were different. The reason we would not come back is because it is too far for us to come. It was the only place that we could get into at short notice. It was a quiet place to stay and we did enjoy ourselves with our family. It would've been nice to have a playground for the kids.
