Pierson Ranch Recreation Area, opened in 1959, is the oldest campground in the area.
It was the first campground to be constructed after Gavins Point Dam was completed. Located between Chief White Crane and Lewis and Clark Recreation Areas, visitors can take advantage of a wide variety of recreation opportunities in all three parks.
Right off Highway 52, the park provides easy access to picnic shelters and campsites. In addition, the large day-use area serves as an excellent facility for hosting family reunions and large group picnics.
