The South Dakota Park That Will Make You Feel Like You Walked Into A Fairy Tale
South Dakota is full of pretty places, but how many look like they belong in a fairy tale? Here’s one beautiful place that is sure to both enchant and delight you.
Palisades State Park is one of South Dakota's smallest parks, encompassing just 157 acres, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for with its enchanting scenery.
The impressive rock formations here are made of Sioux Quartzite; they rise as high as 50 feet.
These formations look like the remnants of castle walls, don't they?
The spires rise up higher than the trees, much like towers.
With a little imagination, you could see these cliffs lining Split Rock Creek as the walls of a fortress.
Take one of the four trails in the enchanting park to witness its majestic beauty up close.
At night, this place is truly magical. Where else can you see this many stars?
Visit Palisades State Park for your own fairy tale. You'll find it northeast of Sioux Falls in Garretson.
