UPDATED DIRECTIONS TO CAMP IYATAKA DUE TO ROAD CONSTRUCTION:
There is bridge work being done on Hwy 15 just west of Wilmot, SD this summer, so when driving on I 29 take the same Hwy 15, Wilmot exit:
Go about 2 miles east and turn left (north) on 462nd Av. (Peever Rd), and go 3 miles north, turn right (east) on 133rd St and go 7 miles to County Rd 4, (Browns Valley Rd), turn left (north), go 2 miles north to the Camp Iyataka sign, then turn right (east) on 131st St and this road will take you right to the camp entrance.
All of the roads are tar roads except for the last 3 miles to camp.
Camp Iyataka offers both developed and primitive camping areas. Developed sites (sites 1-11) have covered shelters, picnic tables, pit toilets, and fire rings. While most campsites are located on the lower level, next to the lake, there are several excellent campsites on the upper level, located just north of the Lodge. Rural water is located in front of the lodge and on the South end of camp along the road. These are outdoor hydrants that are locked, but the gate key will open them. Firewood is very abundant, with many woodpiles located throughout the camp.
Popular activities at the camp include fishing, hiking, canoeing or boating, and exploring the network of trails criss-crossing the property.
Much of the camp is heavily wooded, with abundant resources for lashing and pioneering projects.
For those interested in nature, the camp abounds with many species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and other vegetation . The camp is also home to deer, rabbit, wild turkeys, pheasants, hawks, and more.
For those interested in area-wide activities or games, there are two large beaches on the lower level, and several large open areas on the upper levels.
To reserve camp facilities, Scouting units should use the Facility Reservation system.. All other organizations should call the Sioux Council (605-361-2697) for fees and availability. To reserve the full camp property, please call the Sioux Council.
