This Haunted Road Trip Will Lead You To The Scariest Places In South Dakota

South Dakota is known for its lovely scenery and fantastic tourist attractions, yet what people don’t often talk about is that it’s also full of loads of creepy and notoriously haunted buildings. The Black Hills area is reportedly one of the most haunted areas of our state, as it’s home to Hotel Alex Jackson, the Historic Homestake Opera House, and many more eerie places with unsettling stories and terror hidden within their walls. If you’re in the mood for a little adventure, the following road trip will take you to some of the scariest places in South Dakota.

The trip is only 100 miles long, and it will only take you about 2 and a half hours, easily allowing you to conquer it in one afternoon (or evening, if you’re that brave.) We’ve included a link to the Google Map here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
