This campground was a total surprise to us - really pretty on the shores of a very large lake with sites well spaced on level gravel pads. The whole place looks new but it is several years old and very well maintained. Electric on all sites (50 & 30 amp). No sewer or water on sites but there are four sewer dumps, water and a fish cleaning station in a large paved parking lot. Boat launch and tent sites as well as five cabins are also part of the park. Very dark at night but a campground host makes frequent passes. We arrived on a Sunday evening and the campground had been full that weekend but there were only about five coaches there when we arrived. The entry is about 3 miles off the main highway (US 14) on a paved road that had a couple of breakups. The breakups were washboard when we came in but had been bladed and temporarily repaired by the time we went out the next day. All roads on the campground were in excellent condition. There is also a marked swimming beach. We will return here for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground, clean well spaced sites. Minutes from the Laura Ingalls Homestead which was why we were there. The only reason we gave this a 7 out of 10 were the flies. There were so many flies we could not even eat breakfast outside even while moving around. Other then that, this is a beautiful park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park just outside DeSmet and right on the shores of Lake Thompson. 50 amp, electric only. Sites are gravel and back-in but have nice big lots with grass and a picnic table. Only reason I'm not giving it a higher rating is the flies were horrible when we were there and the site had cigarette butts all over and junk in the firepit which they came right away and cleaned up when we told them but they were not busy so not sure why it hadn't been done. We camped here in a Motorhome.
