Take A Terrific Tubing Adventure At Wickiup Village, A South Dakota River Campground
Do you want to take the family on a unique vacation this summer? While you can always fork out big bucks and travel elsewhere, there is plenty to see and do around the Mount Rushmore State, thanks to not only our landmarks but our many accommodations as well. If you are looking for one of the most family-friendly places to stay, however, you will want to check out the riverside Wickiup Village:
Located on the banks of Spearfish Creek near Lead, Wickiup Village is a stunning riverside campground that is "family-owned, loved, and operated."
Comprised of 20 rustic yet modern cabins, the Wickiup Village has a space for nearly every preference and price point, beginning with quaint 2-person cabins and working up to large and luxurious 6-person accommodations (like the pictured Bear Paw).
In addition to a comfortable place to sleep, cabins at the Wickiup Village boast kitchen areas, TV and wifi, private bathrooms, plus linens and other basic necessities.
While the accommodations are reason enough to stay at Wickiup, the activities may just steal the show, beginning with tubing in Spearfish Creek!
Reserved strictly for guests of the Wickiup, tubing takes place along a private, quarter-mile section of Spearfish Creek, with tube rentals available at the front office.
As if you really needed another reason to stay, Wickiup Village also offers fishing, hiking, and access to an on-site firepit and playground.
Rates at the Wickiup Village start at $100 a night from Memorial Day through Labor Day (or $85 a night during the off-season).
