Martin, South Dakota is located near North America’s “Pole of Inaccessibility”, the point that is the furthest from the sea in the entire continent. However, its remote location conceals hidden riches of nature and culture awaiting discovery. The nearby Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge is perfect for birdwatchers and other wildlife lovers with over 280 recorded bird species, being a breeding ground for the endangered whooping crane and home to the iconic bald eagle and many other raptor species, not to mention mammals ranging from coyotes to pronghorn. The Badlands National Park will also appear to outdoors enthusiasts with its eroded mesas, buttes, and pinnacles, hewn by the elements out of the multicolored rocks over eons, producing an otherworldly landscape that is deeply rewarding for hikers, horse-riders, and sightseers alike.
