“Unique Terrain and Break Taking Views!”

Palisades State Park, located in southeastern South Dakota in the town of Garretson, is the second smallest state park in South Dakota. At 157 acres in area, the park is quite small compared to the vastness of other state parks in South Dakota. Although compact in size, this park packs a powerful visual punch, and the history of the area—complete with larger-than-life legends and tales—more than compensates for its small size.

The Coteau des Prairies, a flatiron-shaped plateau formed by glacial movement, is home to Palisades State Park. Known for its unique terrain and breathtaking views, Palisades State Park is a mecca for rock climbers, hikers, and campers.

A really well-maintained state park. Visited here in early October of 2015 with my two-year old. Lots of place to run around, and very pretty scenic views of the rocks. I'd recommend stopping here for a picnic when on the road. It's a nice detour.

I'd skip this place. Staff is friendly, but camp sites are over priced ($21). (We woke up to a loud train horn and a janitor coming to clean our fire pit early in the morning... Privacy?)
