The Haunted Playground In South Dakota That Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine
Halloween is long over, but if you think that we here at Only in South Dakota are going to wait until next year to share even more haunted spots around the Mount Rushmore State, you are “gravely” mistaken! Today’s highlighted haunt is located in a spot you would least expect: a seemingly innocent park and playground that has proven to be anything but:
Located in north central SoDak is the small and charming town of Eagle Butte, which is not only home to 1,500 residents, but the tribal headquarters of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe.
Established in 1910, Eagle Butte may look like a poster-child for small town America, but hides a dark secret...
...which is that of Shupick Park.
Like most parks, Shupick has picturesque softball fields...
...seasonal festivals and special events...
...and an epic playground for kids, but what you cannot see is what makes Shupick Park downright frightening.
According to legend, Shupick Park is home to the ghost of a woman who allegedly froze to death one evening behind the softball field.
When you walk by the park at night, keep your eyes and ears peeled, as it is said you can both hear the woman's screams and see her shadow walking around both the field and playground.
Remind me to never walk by Shupick Park at night!
Whether or not the legend is true is obviously up for debate, but the story makes for one epic ghost story! To uncover even more South Dakota haunts, click on
