It wasn't peak season when we were there but it's a beautiful park, quiet, and large spaces. No sewer at our lot, not sure if they have some with sewer or not. We chose this one as it was right on the water. Gorgeous park. Well maintained, quiet, and affordable. I would give it a 10 if there was Wi-Fi, cable/satellite TV, and sewer at each site, but that is not typical for any state, county, or city park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Had the campground nearly all to myself. Good showers with a wide spray. Needed that since the humidity along the Missouri River was more than this California boy could handle. Would stay here again - the humidity isn't the park's fault. I just wonder why the previous reviewer paid $4 less than I did. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful! We stayed in the East Campground and had an end site right on the Reservoir. We were on our way to Sioux Falls so only stayed one night. We wished we were staying longer. Even though we only had electric hookups, they have a dump station and a fresh water station for those staying longer. We enjoyed our one night of camping here. Sat outside and watched the jet skiers on the water. Nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and well maintained sites with electric only. Has good spacing and sizable gravel pads. All seemed level. Right on the Missouri River back bay, boat launch and away from highway so it's quiet. About four miles from the city center and convenient shopping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Restrooms & Showers were clean. Site was fairly level, one jack sunk 6", cracked a board. Sites nicely spread out and some have shade. State Park, asphalt road, one way. Quiet Park. Would definitely camp again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice city park along the Missouri River. The sites are all back-in, but there is plenty of room. The area is primarily gravel and the sites are all marked. There is a dump station and fresh water available on site. A restroom is nearby. Showers are available at the swim beach, a short walk away. The RV area is next to the boat ramp and fish cleaning station, so select from the lower numbered sites if available. Tents are allowed on the grassy area between the RV area and the river. There is no charge for tents. The tent area includes grills and covered tables. No open ground fires are permitted. The park also provides covered pavilions, a swimming pool, a swimming beach area, tennis courts, a ball field, playgrounds and a sand volleyball area. A walking/biking path extends through the park. The park is patrolled by police. A limit of 5 days is the posted rule, however, a phone number is listed on the check-in card if more days are desired. We stayed six days. This is a nice park. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a city park on the river. Dump station and fresh water available. Park has a community pool and several group pavilions. Good for a few days stop and rules limit you to a maximum stay of 5 days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Taking into consideration that this is a City park, not bad at all. Great view, close to town, inexpensive. Of course it helped that there were only 3 RVs in the whole park so we were quite spread out, but we would stop here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Neat city-owned park that offers sites with views of the Missouri River. Right in town, so it is easy to get to anything in town (but a 5 day limit per stay). We used the 50 amp power and dump station (with water fill) and enjoyed it. Very level sites and easy to back in. We will certainly stay here again when in Pierre. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient to capitol and grounds. Best to turn south at street just south of hospital to avoid driving through park and low trees. Restroom nearby but best to be self-contained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level, gravel sites. Nice pool and playground in this city park. Some people were boating, swimming and inner-tubing in the river. Dump station on site. Fresh water available but it is very hard water. Felt safe. Noisy some nights until 11pm. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a city park in Pierre, just about a mile for the State Capital building. The park in on the river. It is very nice even though the RV spaces are in a gravel lot. The spaces are divided by markers with lots of room between the spaces. There is a dump station and fresh water available on site. There is a five day stay restriction. Seems like the local police drove through the park every 20 minutes so it was very safe there. The park is located on the Lewis and Clark trail and you can walk or bike several miles of the trail from this location. We did not find this park listed in any of the usual campground books. Very nice for the price. We would stay here again if we ever came back to Pierre. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in Campground #3 because everything else was flooded this year. There were only 20 sites open when we visited. The park showed water damage in a lot of areas and Campground 1 & 2 were not open at all. There are nice trees for shade, plenty of room between sites, paved roads and sites, nearly all sites would accommodate large rigs. As with most of the parks we found in the state, there is electricity at the site, a dump station with potable water and water spigots in the camp area. Restrooms were clean, host very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay. We camped in a 5th wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is no longer a COE campground but part of South Dakota State Parks. Be careful with low trees and soft asphalt on the sites. We won't be back here at this price when all you get is electric. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here the week after Labor Day and the campground was almost empty, although it filled up somewhat the next weekend. We liked the campground a lot, despite the lack of full hook-ups. The sites have electric only. Also, we are in campground #3 and there are only two pull-through sites (I'm not sure about the other wto campgrounds in the park, but I don't think there are any pull-throughs there). The bathrooms and showers are clean, although the showers have a rubber floor that is very hard on the feet. The major disadvantage is the number of flies and mosquitoes that makes it difficult to stay outside for long. There is a walking trail nearby that is great for those cool morning walks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We only stayed here one night on our way through the area so we did not explore all of the campgrounds amenities but it worked out really well for us. We had site #171 in campground #3, a paved, level pull-around site with 50 amp electric but there are no water hook-ups at the sites. There were some sites nearer the water that looked like they would be long enough for our 30 ft class A but the road to them had many low hanging branches that we did not want dragging our our rig. The bathhouses were very clean with good hot water and water pressure. Our only complaint was the low tree branches that we couldn't avoid in this campground. We didn't use the dump but it was set-up well and easily accessed. The campground is just outside of Pierre which is a nice small state capital. We visited the war veterans memorial at the capital building, it was worth seeing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was convenient to town. Sites were large and spacious. While this is no fault of the park, we were
invaded by gypsy moths here and did not enjoy our stay. Moths were in restrooms and showers, too. We made a reservation based on the knowledge or lack of it on the State Park website. Reservation was not necessary but cost us $10 anyway! We camped here in a camper.
