CANISTOTA — More campers will be able to enjoy Lake Vermillion Recreation Area near Canistota this summer, thanks to the addition of a new 28-site campground.
“Lake Vermillion is a popular, well established park and the new campground will help meet the demand for more campsites in the Sioux Falls area,” said Park Manager Derek Dorr. “Because of its location, this campground is going to have a slightly different feel from the rest of Lake Vermillion’s campgrounds. It will provide a wooded camping experience within seconds of the water recreation the lake is known for.”
The new campground, situated north of the existing West Campground, provides a much more private and wooded setting, said Dorr.
The campground also includes two camping cabins, offering visitors views of the prairie landscape and rolling hills. A new comfort station will offer two family rooms and two common areas.
A map showing the layout of the new campground is available on Lake Vermillion’s webpage, found at www.gfp.sd.gov.
The new campground will be ready for campers Memorial Day weekend. Campers can begin making reservations at the new campground on Feb. 25 for a May 25 arrival. Reservations can be made online at www.campsd.com or by calling 1-800-710-2267.
