Camping Around South Dakota




Checking out two lovely campgrounds
for you this week ~ the
KOA
in Yankton, SD
and a second KOA in 
North Sioux City, Iowa!






These photos were taken at the KOA in North Sioux City.
As you can see, this is totally a "kid's paradise!"
There are three swing sets here, the kind like we used to play on as kids;
a couple of different areas with modern climbing
structures along with their big yellow slides; 
and 
a Frisbee golf course for "bigger kids."



Campsites are roomy and extra long to accommodate large RVs and pull-thru campers.



In these next pictures you can see part of the Frisbee golf course...


Since we will be camping over most of the time
we are traveling here for 
our son and daughter~in~love's
wedding
and afterwards as we take
our daughter
down to Texas, 
{she is moving~out with a friend and letting her wings fly!}
I'm glad I came over to check out this campground.
Both KOAs have pools and are pet~friendly
with areas to let your dog use the restroom as well
as letting them play with other dogs.
:)

Justine, my daughter~in~law~to~be,
says there are quite a few campgrounds
around here and that we can camp in Vermillion at one 
of the local parks.
There is usually a nominal fee to camp,
less than would be paid at a state or private park.


I had forgotten that you can camp at many parks 
here in
South Dakota.
Peter and I did just so in DeSmet, South Dakota a few years ago.
When he and I drove out a few years ago with his "new" car,
I think we paid $8 to camp.  It was $10 to hook up an RV. 
Just drop a check in the mailbox attached to the park restrooms...
It's all on the honor system which is lovely!


 If you go to DeSmet, be sure to stop by the
Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum and giftshop!
Every year in July, the city puts on a pageant
with young actors and actresses portraying the life
and times of Laura Ingalls' 1880's life there on the
DeSmet prairie.
Check out there website for information on upcoming events
and to plan a vacation around them!








Happy camping this summer!
Blessings to you,
Barb :)
