Randall Creek Campground Reopens, Reservations Available

PIERRE, S.D. – The campground at Randall Creek Recreation Area near Pickstown is now open, following a 15-month closure to allow for bridge reconstruction.

“We’re excited to get back into the campground, and we know our visitors are too,” said Jon Corey, District Park Supervisor. “We want to thank our regulars for their patience during construction and invite them to come check out the new bridge. I think we’re all looking forward to a summer of camping, fishing and roasting marshmallows.”

A flash flood in March 2019 damaged the bridge leading into the campground, closing the campground. The bridge replacement was completed last week and the campground has been seeing good use.

Corey says that a good number of campsites at Randall Creek are currently open for summer stays. Reservations can be made up until the day you plan to arrive, and as much as 90 days in advance of your arrival. Reservations can be made online at or by calling 1-800-710-2267.

Randall Creek Recreation Area is located one mile west of Pickstown, S.D. off US Highway 281.
