PREVIEW: Palisades Growing Pains

GARRETSON, S.D. - It might not seem like it now,  but it will soon be the season for heading out to the different state parks in KELOLAND to enjoy some nice weather.

And one park could be in for an upgrade. The South Dakota legislature is looking at a proposal to spend up to a half-million dollars on Palisades State Park.

The popular attraction near Garretson is South Dakota's second-smallest state park.  But the money could go toward expanding hiking trails and campsites.  

"Glad to know that the parks are still on the map and that they're still focused on efforts on keeping us and the natural resources established in the state of South Dakota," Park Supervisor Luke Dreckman said.

The funding would come from a public and private partnership that could also include new park entrances and watercraft launches.

We'll find out what Palisades visitors think about the spending proposal, Wednesday in Eye On KELOLAND.
