Beresford - Union Grove State Park

30828 471st Avenue

Rich glacial soils support a lush growth of native woods in 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.


Union Grove State Park began as a County Park around 1936. The Brule Creek was dammed to create a small lake. The lake has since filled with silt and the dam was removed. The land was leased to the State of South Dakota in 1946. Since then the park has been host to residents and vacationers alike.

Very peaceful, friendly place to camp. The campground spots are spacious. The bathrooms/showers are beyond exceptional. The campground hosts make their rounds and make sure you enjoy your stay. We didn't walk on the trails because most of our stay was without much wind and therefore felt the trails would be too buggy. We walked the roads around the park every day and enjoyed campfire in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We will be back.

Great park! Good hiking trails. Well maintained. Excellent bathrooms (four private bathrooms). Amazing hosts. No water or sewer at sites so plan accordingly. Ticks were bad when I was there (July).

For a quick night off of I-29 very quite and easily accessible. They just have electric though no water so make sure you have some water on board. It does have very nice shower facilities we used on our visit.
