Staying in Pierre, the capital city of South Dakota, is a great option for those looking to experience the beauty and fun of the Missouri River region.

Pierre, our capital city, is centrally located in the middle of the state and the river, making it the perfect home base for exploring South Dakota. Besides conventional lodging in the city, there are ample campsites and RV parks by the river, around Lake Oahe, and the Oahe Dam.

Pierre is a city enclosed by parks and picturesque natural features-it only takes a short drive or bike ride to be traveling in the wide-open countryside. You can easily camp at places like Farm Island State Park, Okobojo Point State Recreation Area, or the Oahe Downstream State Recreation Area, and still be conveniently close to the city. At the same time, you're be completely out in nature-on a clear night in Okobojo point, the hazy cloud of the Milky Way galaxy is visible, as are too many stars to count. These campgrounds accommodate both tent and RV camping, and many of these sites also have cabins available for rent. To learn more about camping accommodations in the area check out our state park page.
