The Top Secret Beach In South Dakota That Will Make Your Summer Complete

Depending on where you live in South Dakota, school is starting in just a week or two. But that doesn’t have to mean that summer is over! We know that these warm temperatures will last well into September, so it’s definitely not too late to plan a quick weekend trip. Here’s a little recreation area that has a nice beach…but it’s often overshadowed by the great fishing opportunities here. Plan a short trip in the next few weeks – there’s something fun here for the whole family.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
