Fort Sisseton Historic State Park

Lake City, SD

The history of Fort Sisseton stretches back more than 130 years, when a series of forts were established in eastern Dakota Territory under the direction of Maj. Gen. John Pope. While in operation, the soldiers stationed at the fort ensured safe passage for settlers, surveyors and others into the Dakota Territory. In 1959, the fort was designated a State Historical Park. This 1864 frontier army outpost has 14 of the original buildings still intact.

Today, the park offers camping, cabins and special events such as the Fort Sisseton Historical Festival. Held annually, the festival features black powder shooting, a flag raising ceremony, cavalry and infantry drills, a grand march and several demonstrations.
