We are finally here at the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area State Park outside of Pierre, SD. We will be volunteering here until the end of June maintaining the trails. What a beautiful park. It is situated on the Missouri River below the Oahe Dam. There are three campgrounds with 200+ campsites, some right on the river, a very nice double boat ramp, restaurant,and a little store. The campsites are nice and long with 50amp,water and some have sewer.Two of the campgrounds have a lot of huge cottonwood trees and plenty of shade, while campground three, where we are, still has large trees, but is a little more open. Ideal for us satellite users.
This is will be a nice change from being right on the ocean in the Florida Keys, although not quite as warm.
