Charles Mix County Campgrounds Ready To Re-Open
(KVHT) – Over the past few months two popular campgrounds in Charles Mix County have remained closed due to flood damage from spring storms. According to District Park Supervisor John Cory the Randall Creek campground has been closed since late March when a flash flood damaged the bridge allowing the only access into the park. The North Point campground also experienced heavy flooding and hasn’t been in use since Memorial Day weekend. Both campgrounds are near Pickstown, South Dakota. Now, however, the North Point campground has slowly been getting back to business as usual. Opening earlier this month, Cory said portions of North Point are open now with other parts to be opened throughout the rest of the summer. With the opening of the campgrounds businesses in the area are hopeful that the extra visitors will step up sales and activity in the area. According to Cory, 63 of the 115 campsites at North Point are currently open for campers to use, and six of the seven cabins they have in the park are also available. For more information about both campgrounds, visit the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks website or call the North Point Recreation Area.
