As the first county park acquired by the Conservation Board, Big Sioux continues to provide fishing, primitive camping, canoeing, and boating access opportunities on the Big Sioux River. Located one mile north of Akron, this 33 acre park has undergone a recent habitat transformation due to several major floods. Once primarily a river edge grassland, natural succession is transforming Big Sioux Park into a riparian forest complete with maples, cottonwoods, and willows. 


Public hunting, following DNR guidelines, is allowed. 

Operating Hours & Seasons

The gate to this park will remain open throughout the year but may be closed at anytime due to poor road conditions or high water levels.
