Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of history that stitches the heartland of America with your next RV camping adventure! As the only publicly accessible archaeological site in South Dakota, this unique destination offers a rare glimpse into the lives of the region's earliest inhabitants. From the moment your tires crunch along the gravel to your serene overnight rest on a nearby farmstead, 17 miles away, you'll be enveloped in a landscape that whispers stories of ancient times. Established in 1910, the archaeological treasure trove was unearthed by a curious student's passion. Subsequently, an ardent society dedicated to preserving this historical gem took the reins in 1975, ensuring that the narrative of the area's first occupants is not only conserved but also shared enthusiastically through comprehensive exhibits and research. As an RV enthusiast, not only will you have the chance to connect with a pivotal chapter in human history, but you'll also engage with innovative programs that bridge the gap between the past and present. This location promises an educational and enlightening experienceperfect for those who love to blend the great outdoors with a touch of education and reflection. For members eager to set up camp, convenient parking is available in the main lot or along the circle drive just past the Village. A haven of knowledge and preservation awaits, with clear instructions provided on-site for your eventual tranquil retreat to the farmstead, where your RV can rest under the expansive prairie sky. Welcome RV campers looking to add more than just miles to your journey, but also moments of profound reflection and discovery. This is a stopover where the campfire stories are not just tales, but echoes of millennia preserved under the Dakota skies.
