Oakwood Lakes State Park

Nestled among eight connecting glacial lakes, this park provides a never-ending variety of activities throughout the year, from hiking and swimming, to ice fishing and cross-country skiing. Shaded campgrounds and picnic areas complement the park's excellent swimming and boating facilities.
History of the Area
The park was once used as a summer camp and an annual gathering spot for American Indians. Later, Samuel Mortimer arrived in 1869 and built the log cabin that still stands at the park. The visitor center showcases an archeology display of items found in the area.
Camping
Trails at Oakwood Lakes State Park beckon all types of users - horseback riders, hikers, cross-country skiers and bicyclists. Use common courtesy when exploring the park's trails. Three trails take visitors on an island trail and near several historical sites.

The park is also home to a horse camp that allows horseback riders a base camp from which to explore the park's extensive trail system. Learn more about horse camps and trails in South Dakota state parks.
