Canistota, South Dakota

Camp at Lake Vermillion Recreation Area

Originally added by Alex Thompson

Nice place to camp just 10 minutes outside of Sioux Falls, SD. We had a great view of the night sky and saw a family of raccoons by the lakeside at night.

The South Dakota State Park system has several tent sites on the north side of the lake. Nice lake for boating during the day. We stayed here for the night on our way to Badlands and enjoyed the outdoor feel of the campground.
