Pactola Reservoir Is A Beautiful Lake Nestled In The South Dakota Mountains

In the summertime, when the temperature is high, you cannot beat a day at the lake! While we agree that lakes are a great way to cool off, we happen to think that these bodies of water are great to visit year-round, including the beautiful Pactola Reservoir, which looks even more amazing in the winter:

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
