McCook Lake - Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve

272 Westshore Drive

Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searl Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where people, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a "place for inner renewal."

really nice place to go on a hike, walk, run, I believe you can ride bikes I don't know if they change that but you used to be able to and it has some cool views and cool wildlife and it is a really long trail that goes out to the Missouri River
