Located near Canton, Newton Hills State Park is a sprawling 1,063-acre oasis that features some of the lushest landscapes in the state.
Named for William Newton (one of the original European American settlers in the area), the land encompassing Newton Hills has long been used by SoDak residents, beginning with the Woodland period Native Americans between 300 BC to 900 AD.
