The best camping near Upper Sioux Agency State Park guide



Here’s one for the bucket list: go back in time to America’s native roots and stay the night in a tipi at Upper Sioux Agency State Park. It's rich in Native America history, so be sure to check out the history trail and educational exhibits to learn about the land on which you stand. Take to the 18 miles of trails by day to explore the river valley and transverse prairie knolls. You’ll be exhausted from all the photo ops along the way, but that's a good thing. Words can’t do the sunsets here justice; you’ll just have to come see one for yourself. So, take a load off your legs by posting up on the banks of the Yellow Medicine River and throwing a line in as early dusk arrives. Then, once the sun has nearly disappeared, pack it up and head to your tent, spaces for which there are plenty to go around. For a vibrant and culturally rich experience, come visit during the annual Upper Sioux Community Pow Wow. You're bound to have a beautiful stay!

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, as campgrounds fill up quickly during peak seasons.
  • Consider visiting during weekdays for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Keep an eye on cancellations to snag a last-minute reservation.
  • Explore nearby camping options to increase your chances of finding a site.

When to go
