South Dakota is a Great Plains State named for a tribe of the Sioux natives. Nearly ten percent of its population is Native American and its capital, Pierre, is the second smallest state capital in the country. Its largest city, Sioux Falls, has a population of about 154,000.

Hunting and fishing are popular activities in this rural state. Twenty percent of SD residents have hunting licenses, and a larger share engage in fishing activities. The fishing season is open year-round in South Dakota. There are nearly 30 species of fish to be angled, and trapping is healthy as well. South Dakota has seven National Park Service sites, including Mt. Rushmore National Memorial and Badlands National Park. Jewel Cave, in Jewel Cave National Monument, is the second largest cave in the world, and there are more caves in Wind Cave National Park. There are also several state parks, and the largest, Custer State Park, is home to more than 80,000 bison.
