Layered rock formations, steep canyons, and windy scenic lookouts make South Dakota stand out as a state of rugged beauty. The state has six national parks and 56 state parks that draw visitors to the state every year. Go hiking or camping in the lush woods or cool off in one of the multiple lakes. Experience the state’s rich Native Indian culture by attending events such as the Black Hills Powwow in Rapid City or the Rosebud Tribal Powwow at Rosebud, the Sioux Empire Wacipi in Sioux Falls, the Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota Nation’s Annual Wacipi and the Yankton Sioux Tribe’s Fort Randall Powwow at Lake Andes. Go beyond Mount Rushmore and explore all of the natural beauty of the Dakotas. Find your next adventure on this list of South Dakota national and state parks.
