Martin SD Logo


Martin is home to about 1,150 people and is located in the southwestern
portion of the state, approximately 45 miles from the Badlands National Park.
The community is only 120 miles from Rapid City, SD and the Black Hills
National Forest.


Spires, pinnacles, buttes, and gorges form 244,000 acres of eerie, haunting topography. The Badlands are caused by 35 million years of wind and water erosion. The rock layers reveal petrified remains of prehistoric camels, three-toed horses, saber-toothed tigers, and giant rhinoceros-like titanotheres. Living creatures still wander the Badlands: buffalo, deer, pronghorns, coyotes, and others.  
A sea of pine trees, so thick they look black from a distance, cover these aged mountains. The Black Hills stretch for 1.2 million acres, offering outdoor adventure against a backdrop of stunning scenery. Within the forest, you'll find opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, rock climbing, skiing, snowmobiling and more!  
This epic sculpture links the faces of four exalted American presidents: Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Lincoln. South Dakota's Black Hills provide the backdrop for Mount Rushmore, the world's greatest mountain carving. Sculptor Gutzon Borglum began drilling into the 6,200-foot mountain in 1927. Creation of the Shrine to Democracy took 14 years and cost a mere $1 million, though it's now deemed priceless.
