Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve
Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River in the very southeastern part of the state, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searls Adams. They saw the area as a place where people, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. There is a visitor center, restored historical buildings, interpretive exhibits, cross country ski rentals and 10 miles of trails.
