West Bend Recreation Area

22154 West Bend Road
Harrold, SD 57536


Excellent walleye and small mouth bass fishing is supported by a relatively stable lake level and cool water temperatures. With most fishing done from boats, the protected marina offers convenient boat launching, regardless of the wind direction. In the autumn, hunters use this as a base camp to hunt pheasants and Canada geese.

West Bend Recreation Area is one of the SD State Parks along the Lewis and Clark Trail.

Boat and camper storage is available at West Bend Recreation Area between April 30 and September 30. Call 605.773.2885 for more information. Reserve a storage spot online or by calling 1.800.710.2267.
