Campground Details

Open: Open May through October
Number of Sites: 12

The Hollow's first Indian visitors named it "Sica," (pronounced she-cha) meaning evil or bad. Eerie Sioux legends recall mysterious happenings here. Along the Trail of the Spirits, a Registered National Recreation Trail, you'll see gurgling reddish bogs, which Indians saw as the blood and flesh of their ancestors. Swamp gas and stumps glow in the dark, and small waterfalls are heard echoing as trapped air escapes. Indian lore also gives new meaning to Sica's streams, rustic bridges, waterfalls, and wildflowers. An interpretive guide is available to bring these legends to life.

Fifteen miles of marked trail guides horseback riders through 900 acres of woodland, which remains much as it did when the first settlers arrived in the 1840s.

A group base camp features water, vault toilets, fire grates, tie rails and table shelters. Available by reservation only, please call the park office at (605) 448-5701. Learn more about horse camps and trails in South Dakota state parks.
