RV camp at Circle K Campground in South Dakota and enmesh yourself in the slower pace of life and idyllic charm. Circle K Campground is situated in a wide-open, flat field with a few ancient cottonwood trees for shade. The broad, thick branches invite a lazy day of lounging on them while reading or napping. There are 35 sites to choose from, and all have 30 or 50 amp electric, water, and sewer hookups. The gravel sites are oversized and able to accommodate rigs up to 70 feet. Each site has a fire ring that is perfect for grilling a freshly caught trout or for making s’mores. WiFi is available for all to use. The park office has restrooms with hot showers, laundry, and a convenience store. As an added bonus, there is a self-service RV wash, which is nice for rinsing off the road dust.
The closest town is White Lake, SD, which is about half a mile north. Though it’s very close by, the road crosses a busy highway, and it’s recommended that one uses a vehicle instead of walking. The small town boasts a grocery store and a restaurant, and a handful of shops. For more variety in shopping as well as a medical center with an emergency room, the best bet is Chamberlain, SD, which is a little over 30 miles to the west.

Though this part of South Dakota is largely agricultural, there are several pockets of wilderness. To the north is the National Waterfowl Protection Area and Humphries Slough State Game Production Area, both of which borders a large, unnamed lake. Migratory waterfowl and other aquatic birds frequently stop at this lake in autumns and springs on their long journey to their summer and winter grounds. Wildlife observation, photography, fishing, and even hunting are enjoyed by many.
Bordering the Missouri River to the south, not far from Platte, SD, are several State Recreation Areas, such as Platt Creek State Recreation Area and North Point State Recreation Area. Here, adventurers can get a glimpse into what wild South Dakota really was like before farmers flocked to the state. Though the main activities are boating, fishing, and during the appropriate seasons, hunting, each of these recreation areas has a few miles of hiking trails. In wintertime, these trails convert to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails, though skiers should be aware that the trails are typically not groomed. Fishermen can expect to catch trout, bass, and crappie, and trophy-sized fish are not unheard of. In addition to waterfowl hunting, elk, deer, turkey, and other small-game hunting are allowed.
South Dakota is, quite possibly, best known for its two famous geological features; Mount Rushmore National Monument, at which a sculptor carved the likeness of four prominent leaders of the United States into a small mountain, and the Badlands. As extraordinary as they are, that doesn’t mean the rest of the state has nothing to offer to travelers journeying the long, straight roads in a motorhome rental. Several small towns have roots in creating various Wild West legends, and many maintain museums that detail their role in this exciting period in the United States’ history.
As you are traveling from town to town in a rental RV, stop at each to explore their features. The Atka Lakota Museum and Cultural Center in Chamberlain shares various traditions, beliefs, and rites along with their history in the midwest. In a similar vein, the Dakota Discovery Museum in Mitchell examines the pioneer era as well as some of the historic battles between the settlers and the local Native American tribes. Many original farming tools, furnishing, and weapons are on display.
Residents here are not without a sense of humor and fun. The Corn Palace in Mitchell is a quirky roadside attraction that features corn-themed murals. Built-in 1892, the building’s architecture was designed to resemble an Arabic building. The interior is decorated with corn and other grains alongside the murals. It also holds an annual festival, usually in mid-August, at which there are carnival rides, food vendors, and games.
The SD Tractor Museum, found in Kimball, is sure to delight any truck or farm-equipment fanatic. The museum features a wide variety of farm equipment ranging from hog oilers to a 1930s McCormick-Deering Tractor.
