This has become an annual trip for me and some fishing buddies. We have stayed at Buryanek, Platte Creek, and Snake Creek. Not only is Snake Creek the best one of them in the area, but one of my favorite campgrounds I've EVER stayed at. While it's not the perfect family place, perfect for couples, or a fishing camp. SD state parks have huge sites! Most other states would have two to three times the number of sites in the same park area. You must stay here to believe it. We were lucky enough to get a pair of waterfront sites this past stay. Amazing weekend. Get this...at 5:45 each morning as we were headed to the boat ramp we saw the Park Employees pulling in for work!! At 6am one morning there was a Park person checking the bathrooms...on a Saturday!! Kudos to the SD State Parks program. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Nice campground for a day or two. No water at campsites, and fill stations practically non-existent. One fill station across the highway on the marina road, but has permanently attached hose and right by the dump station. There is a standard pull-up spigot at the bird cleaning station in the north campground where you can use your own hose, but not marked and hard to find. Other than that, nice views and well maintained. South campground is newer with concrete pads vs. gravel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this campground! This is a green oasis beautifully situated right next to the Missouri River. We camped on North side and the sites are large, level paved sites (easily accessible to big-rigs) with fire-pit and bench. Most of the sites have electric (50 amp), views of the river, and nice separation between campers. The grounds are grassy and maintained beautifully with plenty of shade trees. There's flush toilets and showers. Also, central dump station w/ potable water (up the hill opposite the campground). Final bonus is access to swimming in the river at several locations (the river was literally 10 steps from our RV and we went for several dips each day). During the week this place is completely empty, but I gather it fills up on the week-end. We'd definitely come back here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
North Campground is older with many mature trees and with some paved and some gravel sites with 30 amp. The South Campground which is newer has all paved sites and 50 amp. Most sites are spacious many with lake views. Limited satellite reception in North Campground, no problem in South Campground. Water to fill tanks was hard to find. Campground is quiet during the week days but very busy on weekends. There are boat ramps and beach swimming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
