Spending time at the Yogi Bear RV Park and Sioux Falls

We are spending the month at the Yogi Bear Jellystone Park on the east side of Sioux Falls. This is a nice park and very well maintained and we have enjoyed our stay so far.

Not surprisingly, Yogi is very popular with the kids and the park really tries to make kids have a great time. Naturally, this peaks on the weekends when the kids play minigolf and hit the pool, but by Monday morning, we have the park to ourselves for the week.

Our site is nice sized and very clean and level. The park seems to be in great condition with recent upgrades to utilities and roads. As you can see, there is plenty of room on the site for the coach and car in the pull through site.

Of course, we are exploring the Sioux Falls area and as we drove by a shopping center parking lot, we saw a large, portable swimming pool being set up. The next day, we drove by and lo and behold, it was the Dock Dog competition! This is a competition for retrievers who leap off the platform into the water to retrieve a tossed float. Since our dog, Cody, loved to do this in his youth, we had to take a look.

This dog really took off and traveled about 17' in the air (and splashed all the kids on that end of the pool!). The dog reminded me of Cody who could launch about the same distance into the lake and just loved it. You could tell the dogs could not wait to hit the water. This was a fun, free exhibit!
