There was a lot to do for young children. There was great food. The only down fall was long lines. The greatest thing was the shuttles. Would I recommend it to a friend? YES
Ponca State Park facilities have been upgraded and made more family friendly. You can still rent a rustic cabin (with pretty complete kitchens and air conditioning) but you can also rent new lodges that are lovely with a home-in-the-woods feel. New swimming pool, shooting range, the Missouri River, lots of nature programs for kids, and not far from Vermilion, SD... 更多

I was thankful for the bathhouse with showers... 更多

I've never been to the midwest and this park was a great educational as well as recreational experience. Her parents and kids stayed at a big newer cabin, the... 更多
We just returned from our second stay at Ponca State Park, both times with our grown children, their spouses, and our grandchildren. Once again, we had a great time! We rented two 4 bedroom mini-lodges, which served our needs very well. Besides the pool, we enjoyed one of the naturalist programs and several of the introductory shooting classes. We highly... 更多
They have made many changes since we were last there. they have added nice cabins and the main center is really nice with good views of the area and some wild life. We would like to stay longer and give it a good try but were on our way to Bob's for the giant hamburgers.
