Rich glacial soils supporting a lush growth of native woods is the scenic setting for this hidden treasure. Horseback riders, hikers, bikers and cross-country skiers enjoy several miles of trail through the forest along Brule Creek. The trees and plants attract a variety of birds sure to keep botanists and birdwatchers entertained for hours. Campers enjoy the quiet well-shaded campsites and the horse camp is the perfect base for a weekend of riding.

Horseback riding is a big draw to this park, with 150 acres available for riding. The rolling hills covered with lush native plants provide excellent opportunities to spot some wildlife along the way.

After a day of riding, visitors can spend the night at the Union Grove horse camp, which features four electrical sites. Learn more about horse camps and trails in South Dakota state parks.

October 31 A great park by Nancy Braham
park review stars; one to five My husband & I stayed at the park the 20th of Aug. of this yr. The camp host was helpful & very friendly. The park was so clean, just a great place to stay. We will be going back. We live in southern Mo. but the drive is worth it.
