The Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge is located on 21 acres along the Big Sioux River, a place of quiet and natural beauty intended to foster social interaction and creative pursuits between artists and community in SE South Dakota, 10 miles north of Sioux Falls. Property updates at The Retreat happen constantly; we get better and better! The 100′ x 40′ main hall is perfect for larger workshops, concerts, poetry readings, small theatrical productions, classes, and other social gatherings and rentals in April through November. The A-Frame is a unique space for recitals, presentations, meetings, or a sleeping space for up to 6 people. There is a Woodworking Shop; Artist Studio; screened-in outdoor patio; playground; huge bonfire pit; and room to camp or explore. The Retreat is a space to work in quiet solitude or to collaborate on creative projects with others. The setting is inspiring; possibilities for your stay are endless. Learn more about this land: This site is a sandy spot along the Big Sioux River on a ridge well above the water line. View out over the river to a farm on the opposite bank. Spend your time with wild turkeys, geese, and an occasional deer. Site is on the far edge of an artist retreat, but still private. Spend time hiking the river bank or gravel country roads, fish in the river, take part in any Retreat activities if available, photography opportunities, enjoy an evening campfire under the stars.This site is a sandy spot along the Big Sioux River on a ridge well above the water line.

Quiet Oasis in a Storm
Deb was easy to communicate with, and the campsite is private while also close to a building that houses a kitchen as well as flush toilets and showers, really a great amenity particularly if the weather is iffy. Deb contacted us on our arrival day to say that she had a cabin available if we wanted to use it, as it had been raining for two days and looked like it would continue. So thoughtful and generous of her! I recommend this camp, it is convenient to Sioux City and I-90, but not too close, it is very quiet here.

Amazing!!!!
We had a beautiful camp site by the river. The hospitality from both Deb and Peter was wonderful. My brother and I wished we could have stayed longer. I HIGHLY recommend this campground and our amazing hosts. If we ever get back to Sioux Falls we will definitely stay at this campground.

A lovely spot on the river. Lots of bugs- but that’s nature. A gorgeous property with lots of color and art. The best part for us was the main hall that has wifi, bathrooms, and a place to hide from the thunderstorms that drifted through. Deb even invited my dog, Roxy, in. Because of this space, our first night camping together was successful. We’d definitely return if ever in the area.

Beautiful space and wonderful host!
We loved staying at Deb's property. The camping area was spacious and very private. Deb was incredibly welcoming and a great host! She even provided a fire starter for us at the campsite. The view of the river was beautiful and the amenities were great (bathrooms with showers, full kitchen, a screened in "porch" with fans). The area also very dog friendly--even in the main hall with the bathrooms--so we didn't have to leave our dog alone in the tent. Highly recommend a night or more here!
