Roy Lake Resort Purchased by State

Red House at Roy Lake

Many families in Northeastern South Dakota hold dear memories of Roy Lake Resort near to their hearts. The popular family destination was purchased by South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks on March 2 from long time owner Jan Pitzel. The Roy Lake State Park district office began managing the resort back in March. All previous reservations for this year are still being honored by the resort. South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks District Director Scott Simpson said, “We will strive to offer many of the same services, modified watercraft rentals, convenience store, and bait sales. However, on-water gas sales will be discontinued.” Reservations are available through www.campsd.com, or by phone at 1.800.710.CAMP as units become available. // — Karlie Spiry
