Attention Ice Fishermen and Visitors to our Parks

Due to the warm weather we have been experiencing it is important that you check and know the depth and condition of the ice before heading out to go fishing.

We have placed barricades up to stop vehicle traffic to the western half of the Big Sioux Recreation Area. Road conditions have continued to deteriorate with the warming spring temperatures. Foot traffic and bicycles will still be able to use portions of the road. There is space to turn around at the barricades. Please do not drive on the grass as several ruts have been left and will need to be fixed. The roadway will be closed until further notice.

Camping season is fast approaching we are anticipating having facilities open by middle of April.

We look forward to seeing you this summer, thank you for your cooperation and be safe out there!
