Blood Run On Verge Of Becoming SD State Park

Blood Run On Verge Of Becoming SD State Park
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Efforts to preserve picturesque and historically significant acreage along the Big Sioux River are kicking into high gear in 2013.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard told lawmakers last week that he's introducing a bill to designate the 600-acre Blood Run nature area southeast of Sioux Falls as South Dakota's 13th state park.

Officials plan to build a visitors' center and make other improvements to the site using $2 million in state funds, $2 million in matching private donations and $1 million from the state Game, Fish and Parks Department.

The site borders Iowa and was used by thousands of Oneota Indians into the early 1700s.

Blood Run opened for self-guided hikes and appointment-only tours this past summer, and Parks and Recreation Director Doug Hofer says the response has been overwhelming.
