Fort Sisseton Historic State Park
Lake City, SD
What is there to do?
Walk the grounds where the officers' quarters, stone barracks, powder magazine, guard house, and other buildings remain at frontier Fort Sisseton. This 1864 fort, atop the Coteau des Prairies (or hills of the prairies), is a rare reminder of the western frontier. The forts name comes from the nearby Sisseton Indian Tribe, and it is now a picturesque state park that unfolds the area's history.
