Enjoy the outdoors at this scenic state park.

Palisades State Park encompasses 157 acres and is an ideal area for camping. Split Rock Creek flows through the park. It is South Dakota's 2nd smallest state park and is a place where landscape photographers, hikers, sightseers, picnickers, and rock climbers often go. Many rock climbers like to practice their scaling and rappelling techniques on the cliffs and formations that Palisades has to offer. The park is lined with pink Sioux quartzite rock formations. Geologists believe that the Sioux quartzite spires are 1.2 billion years old.

There are 4 hiking trails where you can get a closer look at the rock formations. Camping sites are available for tents or big rigs with group areas, a picnic area, and in the forested areas. Pets are welcome and the area is perfect for families. Palisades State Park has a lodge as well that is open year-round with options for larger groups. You can reserve the lodge, a campsite, or a cabin online. The lodge is also a great place for weddings, reunions and meetings. Enjoy your stay and get active by biking, bird watching, climbing, or fly fishing at Palisades State Park.
