Lac Qui Parle DNR

Visited here in 2007 & camped in 2012. Stayed in the lower campground. Most of the sites have little privacy. I think #1, 2 & 15 are the best. The upper campground is all open, but there seems to be nice spacing between the sites at least. There isn't much to do here on foot. The swimming beach/picnic area is a nice place to relax. There's also the Federal Dam & Rec Area and the Mission site. The Rec area has been pretty busy with people fishing when I've driven by there.
