Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Pierre, South Dakota area.
Pierre -- capital of South Dakota, the seat of Hughes County, and anchored by the Mighty Missouri River -- sits amid rolling ranch country and flatlands. Wheat, corn, and soybean fields stretch eastward, whereas cattle ranches operate to the west where buffalo once roamed free. Four dams, with Oahe Dam being the biggest, control flooding, provide hydroelectric power, and spur water recreation and wildlife habitat enjoyment. Geese and mallards use the Mighty Mo as a flyway from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Deer, antelope, coyote, fox, and mink are plentiful, and the area also hosts bald and golden eagles. French-Canadians, exploring in 1743 near present-day Fort Pierre, claimed the territory for France. Lewis and Clark, moving through in 1804 during their famed push to the Pacific, opened the nation’s last frontier to fur traders and steamboat traffic. Near Pickstown, ruins of the Fort Randall Chapel mirror the past. Memorials to Sitting Bull and Sacagawea are near Mobridge, and tribes maintain buffalo herds while staging powwows and expositions to preserve culture and traditions. Grounds of the South Dakota Capitol, all 115 acres, include a five-acre Capitol Lake with several nearby monuments and memorials.
