"The petrified wood park in..." South Dakota Off The Beaten Path Tip by pipsqueak

South Dakota Off The Beaten Path: 33 reviews and 26 photos


The petrified wood park in Lemmon, South Dakota. The farmers around the town of Lemmon had an abundance of petrified wood in their fields, so someone had the idea to create castles and towers and all kinds of 'art' out of it in the town's central park. Okay, it doesn't really sound that exciting, and it's not if you are an adult, but please, don't let me be the only person who drove miles out of his way to see this stuff! People who enjoy large balls of twine and two-headed calves will really like this, I guarantee it.
Lemmon is on South Dakota's border with North Dakota in the middle of the state.
