The Clearest Lake In South Dakota Is Almost Too Beautiful To Be Real

Here in the beautiful state of South Dakota, there are many lakes to visit that are all beautiful in their own way. However, this one lake inside Custer State Park has water so clear that it’s almost too gorgeous for words. Check out these crystal blue waters and the silhouette of rock formations surrounding it that make the perfect scenery. This South Dakota lake is so beautiful it almost doesn’t seem like it can be real.
