December 1 The Yankton/Missouri River KOA Campground was awarded the 2018 KOA President’s Award and KOA Founder’s Award by Kampgrounds of America, Inc., the world’s largest system of family-friendly campgrounds.

Dive In Yankton (DIY) announced the winner between the two design concepts presented at a public meeting in late September. The final concept, as chosen by the public on hand at that meeting, features a bath house entrance on the southeast side with a concession stand that can be accessed from inside the aquatic facility and the park. Inside, guests would find a zero-depth entry leisure pool; a lazy river; water slides; an 8-lane, 50-meter competition pool with diving boards. Similar to the current wading pool situation, the concept also includes an adjacent splashpad area that would be free to the public. Plans are to build the pad in a way that it could be utilized after hours and during the shoulder seasons independent of whether the main pool is in operation. The competition pool is set up so that it could be utilized without closing the remainder of the facility to the public during major events. A 148-space parking lot is located directly to the south of the proposed facility. No cost estimates have been presented to this point. The goal is to replace the aging Fantle Memorial Park Pool, which celebrated its 70th birthday this year.
