This is called the Left Tailrace Campground at the COE Big Bend Dam. It was closed for over a year due to damage by the Missouri River Flood in 2011. The sites are level and the pull-throughs are over 60'. Lots of shade trees. Because it is not back on the reservation system, and was late in opening this year because of repair delays, it is not very busy. The restrooms are NOT clean and don't look like they get any regular cleaning. The campground is mowed, but no attention to detail like trimming. Fair Verizon signal. Prices for COE campgrounds have gone up in general but with Golden Age it was $9 per night. There are scattered water faucets and the dump station is about a 1/4 mile down the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.

I love this campground. We are from Sioux Falls, SD and we come back here every year in May. It is quiet and the fishing is great. While we are there the bathrooms are cleaned everyday. The water in the showers is always warm. The sites are very clean and there are a lot of things for kids to do. There are very few bugs in May. We have been coming to this campground for the last 6 years and we will keep coming back probably for the rest of lives. I have been to several campgrounds in SD, and this campground is by far my favorite. We camped here in a Tent.

The review of May 2008 provides a good description of this campground although I rate it a point higher. It appears that routine cleaning and maintenance have been neglected. The bathrooms were filthy and trash needs to be picked up on the grounds. Otherwise, it is a typical Army Corps of Engineers park. The rate quoted was with the 50% Senior Pass discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
