After soaking in the sheer magnitude of Mount Rushmore, you won’t want to miss everything else South Dakota has to offer. Just like its northern neighbor, this state is chock-full of underrated attractions. For the full SoDak experience, head to Pease Creek Recreation Area in Geddes. And bring your swimsuit!
You won’t be able to resist jumping into the sparkling, clear waters all around you. The best part about this park is its remoteness. You won’t have to worry about anyone creeping into your campsite or hogging space on the beaches!
