"Palisades State Park
Just Northeast of Sioux Falls, SD


Explore red quartzite pinnacles and chasms along Split Rock River in three parks at Garretson. Back road scenery, geology, history of prairie pioneers and legends of Old West bandits - Jesse and Frank James, are waiting for you to discover."


"Palisades State Park is one of the most unique areas in South Dakota. Split Rock Creek, which flows through the park, is lined with Sioux quartzite formations varying from shelves several feet above the water to 50-foot vertical cliffs. Scenic overlooks and rushing water make Palisades a popular getaway. The park is popular among campers, photographers, sightseers, picnickers, rock climbers and hikers." In: State Parks
