A comfort station is a public restroom with showers. The comfort stations are closed during the winter to keep from freezing and damaging water lines. They usually close in late October / early November, and typically open up in April / May, and all are open by Open House Weekend in May. Camping fees are reduced when the comfort stations are closed.
The majority of the modern comfort stations in the SD state park system are wheelchair accessible, featuring close parking, sidewalks, wide doors, accessible showers with seats, and stalls with grab bars. Service animals are permitted inside the buildings.Search for Visitor / Education Centers
