Lemmon, South Dakota, organized in 1906, is rich in the history and culture of “taming the plains.” Surrounded by sprawling ranches, farms and magnificent prairies teaming with wildlife, Lemmon is an all-season kind of place.
Lemmon is located in the heart of Grand River and Cedar River National Grasslands, just a stone’s throw from the North Dakota border - South Dakota’s Dream Road (US Highway 12- Yellowstone Trail). The area is rich in the history and culture of “taming
the plains.” Major routes like US Highway 12, SD Highway 73, I-94 and I-90 make Lemmon easily accessible. Even better, fly
into Lemmon’s municipal airport -- 4,500 feet of paved and lighted runway.
Lemmon is centrally located for visits to both the Black Hills and Badlands of South Dakota and the Theodore Roosevelt National
Park of North Dakota. So, spend a little time in Lemmon, or even better, make it your destination. Lemmon is truly an “all-
season” kind of place, where there’s a never-ending variety of things to do and see.
