Don't let a little cool weather prevent you from camping yet this fall!

South Dakota State Parks are open year round. Even the shower houses are open as long as the weather cooperates.

Here in South Dakota we have dozens of parks with the most beautiful fall scenery in the country. Along the Missour River region, the northeast and its glacial lakes, Black Hills and Badlands, plus the southeast region, with fishing, camping, boating and hunting.

During this cooler weather if you're not brave enough for a tent you can always reserve a camping cabin within just a few days.  Reserve online at

Make sure you contact the park directly before your stay.

Between now and the end of the year there are plenty of events at our state parks so check ahead.
