Big Stone Lake State Park

35889 Meadowbrook State Park Road

Big Stone Lake is 26 miles long and is located on the South Dakota-Minnesota border. The lake is the source of the Minnesota River and attracts anglers who catch walleye, northern pike, yellow perch and bluegills. The northern section of the park, called the Bonanza Area, provides a picnic area and boat launch for guests. The area also includes the Bonanza Education Center which provides a place to discover the past and ways to preserve it. The southern section of the park, called the Meadowbrook Area, contains a campground, swimming beach and hiking trails.

Nature has a way of taking ones breath away that you just feel so connected yet free. The air, the space and the accessability were companions for the same cause. Keep up the good work. Get creative with nature

It's okay. Park rangers are very nice and friendly. Property not my favorite for camping uneven sites

About 30 tent and small camper campsites, half of them are on the lake. The campground is in a valley, so it is shielded from the wind. Not much hiking but it is good for boating or fishing. I would recommend it.

Small park with wonderful view and fishing. Swim beach could use some work though.
