Peak Season:

Summer is the peak season for visiting and when most South Dakota flights and hotels are booked.

Summer is also busy with Native American celebrations and rodeos.

The fishing season lasts year-round, with some exceptions.

Off Season:

The winters are generally too harsh for most of the outdoor attractions and activities.
