    We stayed at this park near Sioux Falls, SD last week on our way home from the Black Hills. It is in the middle of farm country and is like an oasis. If you stay here be sure to try and get a lake side pull through site. We were in awe! They are up on the bank with a wood fence/rail that has stairs down to a mowed waterfront. The fire pit is down there as well. The sunset from atop the bank was incredible! The lake has good fishing! All and all a great park!We wished we had Moe than one night there.

    Staying here next Friday night on our way home from the Black Hills. Thanks for the heads-up Ken, it will be a good distance for stopping for the night!

    Vermillion State Rec Area was a real nice place to stay on our way home from the Black Hills. It is a small oasis in the farm country--clean and inviting. The sites along the lake are adjacent to the road and may not be the best for young kids.

    I lived in the Lake Vermillion area for 25 years. If planning a trip remember the park is extremely busy on the weekends and holidays during the summer. Most times the park will be full. Reservations can be made. HOWEVER, if you camp during the week or during the off season, you will pretty much have the place to yourself.
