Discover Big Sioux Recreation Area, SD


Located on the scenic banks of Big Sioux River, right next to the town of Brandon, is a recreation area with awe-inspiring and challenging trails, lovely picnic shelters, and a great RV campground. Big Sioux Recreation Area encompasses 270 acres of prairies, forests, and wetlands and is frequented by anglers, birdwatchers, outdoor adventurers, and families on vacation.

During summer, guests love to come here and cool off by boating, swimming, and sunbathing along the shoreline. Many migratory birds species along with eagles and waterfowl come here to roost, so keep an eye out if you wish to spot them. As for winter, Brandon campers, along with guests from other nearby towns like Garretson (14 miles away) and Sioux Falls (nine miles away), come here for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Being close to Brandon makes it easy for guests to find gas stations, stores, and restaurants when they want to eat out. It's also very convenient to find an RV rental for your Big Sioux Recreation Area camping trip. All you have to do is book an RV in Minnehaha County and you'll arrive at this beautiful park in no time.

Getting Outdoors

One of the park’s unique attractions is the Archery Trail. The trail is moderately difficult to traverse and has over ten stop-and-shoot points. In other words, instead of being a regular shooting range, the trail is shaped as an aggressive trail that requires both stamina and accuracy to fully conquer. There's also a two-and-a-half-mile bike trail used by both bikers and hikers, and the very challenging Prairie Vista Trail that's also around two and a half miles.

Hunters also love camping at Big Sioux Recreation Area, as hunting is allowed in certain areas using primitive weapons. Fishing is more popular, though, as the park offers a diverse selection of fish, including crappie, bluegill, catfish, perch, largemouth and smallmouth bass as well as walleye.

Families who come here during summer tend to spend their time playing disc golf, swimming, boating, and picnicking. The park has boat ramps along the Big Sioux River as well as a developed boating business, as such guests are encouraged to try it out. During winter, however, you can enjoy snowshoeing, snowmobiling, building a snowman, and visiting the park's warming areas afterward.
