County Line Campground

4 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Centerville, SD
The farm that County Line Campground sits on was once owned by the Snoozy family from the time of being homesteaded (except for the occasional break in the Abstract where it may have been used as card game collateral). Not until 1931 did the farm come to stay in the name of Harry Snoozy & family until his death in the 1980's and then the family trust sold to the current owners Michael/Susan Larson in 2001. I have rented and operated the farm since 2001. Harry spent his time operating the 151 acres of this farm, milking cows, raising Holstein steers, as well as sheep and hogs. He was well known for his off-farm work of shearing sheep and concrete work. Harry always stamped his cement work with the year he did it, the concrete her on the farm has the year as early as 1954 to as late as 1979 (there were some posts that had been cemented in dated 1981 but those have been removed for livestock pen renovation). Harry was well known in the area for other forms of "income" like handling black market fruit and transportation of illegal liquor. It was also said that during World War 2 that the now gone root cellar on the farm was the only place to get a bottle of whiskey on Sunday afternoon. According to Harry's nephew that resides in the area he also did time at SD State Penitentiary for of all things... stealing chickens. Despite the changed ownership of the farm 21 years ago everyone in the area knows it as Harry's. Learn more about this land:County Line Campground is a 4 site campground on the Lincoln/Turner County line. The camping area consists of a grass area with a variety of trees for shade. Fire pits and firewood provided. We encourage recycling so designated containers for aluminum/tin cans and other waste items provided. Toilet facility consists of a well kept block built outhouse original to the farm and a chemical toilet provided as well. County line is located on a gravel road just 3/4 mile from a paved road. County line is also a working corn, soybean, alfalfa, and cow/calf producing farm although there is no longer a house on the property. During your stay you are welcome to observe/participate in any of the daily tasks and duties of the farm. One of our goals with County Line is to help others become more aware of how production agriculture works on a sustainable level. You will be able to observe cattle grazing pastures as well as cattle being fed for market. County line is located just 2 miles from Centerville, SD where Total Stop grocery store, Centerville Steakhouse, Mushy's bowling alley/bar, Maria's Mexican restaurant, convenience store, Desert Inn bar, and public swimming pool at park in summer months. Due to South Dakota weather we only book camping April 1st through November 15th. We are in our "fledgling" year here at County Line and look forward to adding/improving amenities in the future Thanks for considering County Line Campground hope to see you soon and in years to come!
