Rated #1 in the “Top 7 Campgrounds Near Sioux Falls”, “Best in South Dakota HipCamp” in BOTH 2018 & 2019 and 2nd place in 2020 and 7th place in the USA for “HipCamp Tent Camping” in 2020!!! Solace Farm Rustic Campground is registered with the State of South Dakota and inspected annually. Stay with us and experience the prairies of South Dakota in our large spaces with tall prairie grass flowing in the breeze between the campsites, (because camping is NOT parking 10 feet away from another camper in our opinion) and plenty of space for the kids to play and discover. Our campground is located on the outside western edge of our VERY small and quiet historic town, just 44 minutes south of I-90, 30 minutes from Sioux Falls or 10 minutes west of I-29 and just 8 minutes to Swan Lake for water fun! A short walk from the campground will take you "downtown" to the The Davis Bar or to the General Store for souvenirs, antiques, treats, basic groceries or to pick up more of our homemade jams! Pets are welcomed here at Solace Farm if they are on a leash while onsite. We will have a small convenience store open onsite this fall so you can enjoy your stay with easy access to needs and treats. At your check in we will meet you with a welcome gift of a jar of our homemade jam and a loaf of fresh bread to give your morning that little touch of farm charm. Our rustic little hobby farm is open for you to pitch your tent or small camper in your choice of spaces and we are open to ALL people. We are however unable to accommodate pull behind campers or RV’s in excess of 26'. Site number #2 is a pull through campsite for a pull behind camper, and sites #5 and #6 are pull though for a SMALL pull behind camper, all sites will accommodate tent camping and your drive directly to your site after check-in. Each camp site has a fire ring, picnic table or vintage chairs for you. Firewood is available to purchase. Group Discounts are available, please message us for more information.
Our rural setting at Solace Farm offers bird watching, walking areas, great places to ride your bike, a nearby river to explore, playground, tree swings, the farm animals, evenings with stargazing, the communal fire pit, and a fabulous sunsets to enjoy. Some sites are perfect for hammock tents! We ask that each reservation MUST arrive to check in before 10 PM. You can now order additional jam, fresh bread, salsa and farm fresh eggs and firewood when you make your reservation! Trash and recycle cans are available and we ask that you leave no trace when you pack up. Soon our gothic bathhouse will be ready and we are getting ready to have outside movie nights! SO MUCH fun to look forward to!
The country is yours to experience and our goats (Abbott and Costello) and chickens enjoy attention. Our old country school merry-go-round is fully restored and the teeter totter made from farm equipment that you are welcome to play on, and a few trees to climb if you aren't worn out yet. (This is a working hobby farm and there are areas that children should not play in. Please supervise your children at all times) The second Saturday of each month there is a Flea Market in downtown Davis and is a great time to book! The campground includes a 7 foot firepit with a tree swing and there is a grill and picnic tables for our campers to use. We welcome travelers on their way to and from the Sturgis Bike Rally in August as we are located on Highway 18, a safer alternative for motorcycles to driving on Interstate 90.
Depending on the season, there is almost always something to pick, whether it be cherries, apples, mulberries, plums, rhubarb or something from our garden! The camp area is a few minutes from the main house, and feel free ask for input during booking to determine which sites have the most privacy if you'd prefer quiet time. We have been working on our “Glamper” and she is NOT currently available for use. Upgrades happen every year and we LOVE the feedback from our campers

Cinda was incredibly lovely and her property is a PERFECT stop along a road trip! Campsites were adorable and spread out! Pull right up to the campsite! There is a communal bonfire pit and also every campsite has their own! Water and bathrooms! Also has chickens and fresh eggs! Greeted with a jar of jam and a loaf of bread! 10/10 Would stay again! :)
A really wonderful site with everything you need. Cinda was extremely welcoming and even gave us some homemade goodies upon arrival. We also bought a carton of eggs from her that came from the chickens on the property, and you could tell how fresh they were. Would definitely recommend staying here!
We stayed on our way back from the national parks. It was our second stay and just like our first visit in the way there, it was great. Such a charming spot with peaceful views and great amenities. Highly recommend!!!
Our host couldn't have been more friendly and the location was great. The farm is really cute and we received such great hospitality. We loved the added amnesties of firewood, water, bread, eggs and jam. Would totally recommend the farm for a stay!
