Badlands National Park Photo

Badlands National Park

Millions of years of wind, water and erosion have created the chiseled spires, deep canyons and jagged buttes of Badlands National Park in South Dakota.

On-going rains, freezes and thaws have revealed millions of years of sediment that paint a colorful landscape on the prairies of southwestern South Dakota.

When the Lakota first encountered the striking, moon-like landscape, they aptly called the area Mako Sica or bad land. Early French trappers also described the area as bad land after difficult travels over the rugged terrain. Today, visitors to Badlands National Park in South Dakota can explore this natural wonder on foot, on horseback or by car as they travel the scenic loop or roam the many trails.

Black Hills National Forest Photo

Black Hills National Forest

Sky-piercing granite peaks and forested mountains dominate the skyline of western South Dakota.

Paha Sapa
America's oldest mountains rose above the surrounding flatlands 60 million years ago, about the time the dinosaurs disappeared, and even after eons of erosion their granite peaks still soar as high as 7,242 feet to the dizzying heights of Harney Peak. The Lakota Sioux named the area Paha Sapa or Black Hills because a thick forest of pine and spruce trees cover the slopes making them appear black from a distance.

Outdoor Adventure

Black Hills National Forest stretches for 1.2 million acres, offering outdoor adventure like hiking, biking and camping amidst stunning scenery. Find grassy mountain meadows, towering granite peaks, deep canyons, cascading trout streams and clear, clean lakes.

Corn Palace

Corn Palace, Mitchell, South Dakota.

During the summer months the World's Only Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD offers free guided tours led by friendly guides full of a-maize-ing facts (like how many nails and staples are used in the decoration process). The tour also features an outstanding video explaining the Corn Palace story. After the tour you can view displays about the Corn Palace, watch murals being created outside (Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.), check out what entertainment has played the Palace in the past, learn how the different colors of corn are grown, and shop for souvenirs in our large gift shop.

The theme for 2012 is Saluting Youth Activities. The new murals started to go up in June 2011 and will continue to be created until about September 2011. The process takes most of the summer because we have to wait for four different crops to be ready to harvest: milo, sourdock, rye and, of course, 12 different colors of field corn!
