No one can visit Mitchell without seeing The World's Only Corn Palace.

No one can visit Mitchell without seeing The World's Only Corn Palace. Established in 1892 and at its present location since 1921, the structure is stripped each year and decorated anew with murals formed by thousands of bushels of corn, grasses, grains, and other products celebrating South Dakota's bounty. The Corn Palace is mentioned in the book "1,000 Places to See in the USA and Canada Before You Die". At the Dakota Discovery Museum, you will be able to learn about the lives of the Plains Indians, the Fur Trade, Dakota Territory, Railroading, Farming & Ranching, and the 1930s Great Depression. There is also an art gallery with displays from various artists. Be sure to stop by Cabela's, which is just minutes away and conveniently located off I-90 at exit 332. Return to our comfortable campground with Tent Sites, Camping Cabins, and RV Sites with a variety of lengths up to 70 feet long. We offer a pool, free mini-golf, bike rentals, a new playground clubhouse with three towers & ice cream treats to keep kids big and small happy. Be sure to stop into the general store where you will find a variety of RV supplies, drinks, ice, snacks & souvenirs. After a stay here, you'll be rested and ready for the road. Pool: Memorial Weekend - Labor Day Weekend. Max pull through is 70 feet.

Please note: No out-of-state firewood is allowed due to the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer Beetle, Asian Gypsy Moth, and the Asian Longhorned Beetle; we do have approved firewood available for sale. Thank you for your understanding & cooperation.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our park. Your hosts: Mark & Steffany
