Accessibility

Reservation Center: 1.800.710.CAMP (2267) | www.campsd.com

The SD Department of Game, Fish & Parks strives to accommodate the needs of people of all abilities by providing greater accessibility to facilities and programs for persons with disabilities. We want everyone to enjoy South Dakota's outdoor resources.

To reserve an accessible site or facility, you will be asked to provide your accessible permit number and the expiration date. Accessible campsites are only held for those with disabilities unless they are the very last site left in the park. Reservations for accessible sites must be made through the call center.

Those without an accessible permit will be asked to move should another site become available.
