Town of Hermosa, South Dakota 

Where the Hills and Prairie Meet

Welcome to Hermosa, South Dakota!

Hermosa is a growing community offering a central location to all the area’s surrounding magnificent sites.  Once dubbed the ‘Hub to History and Adventure’, Hermosa serves as the eastern gateway to the beautiful Black Hills.  It is located a mere 20 miles north east of the Custer State Park entrance and only 15 miles east of the historic Mt. Rushmore.  In thirty minutes or less you could be driving through the Badland Lands National Park or it’s out skirting National Grass Lands, walking through Rushmore Cave, sitting in the healing waters of the hot springs, gazing at the abundant wildlife in the Black Hills, hunting for fossils or Fairburn agates, indulging yourself in the rich history of the Native American Sioux Tribe, or enjoying a day of shopping in Keystone, Hill City, or Rapid City.

  In addition to being a central location, Hermosa also offers several locally owned dining options; whether it’s one of many delicious specialty pizzas from the famous Lintz Brothers Pizza, an authentic Mexican burrito from Burrito X-press-O, burgers or chicken from Lazy R Bar & Grill, the daily lunch special at the Community Senior Center, or just a quick bite from the Flying J Truck Stop Deli.  If you plan on sticking around for the plentiful hunting or fishing opportunities nearby, consider staying at either of our campgrounds; the Heartland RV Park & Campground or the Rockin’ R Campground; both provide cabin rentals, tent sites, and accommodations for campers and RVs.

  Hermosa is not only a great place to visit, but a safe and welcoming place to raise your family.  Our Hermosa elementary/middle school boasts an impressive student/teacher ratio along with a newly constructed gymnasium inclusive with exercise equipment.  A local grocery store, several churches and various local watering holes are some of the many other amenities Hermosa has to offer.  Whether you’re visiting, relocating your family or expanding your business, Hermosa really is the most accommodating and convenient place surrounding the Black Hills, offering one of the lowest mill levies in the state with plenty of room for residential or commercial expansion.
