All Aboard! The Route For the Historic South Dakota Wagon Train Set.

The route is set for the historic wagon train that will celebrate South Dakota’s 125th anniversary of statehood.   The wagon train will start in Yankton, home of the Dakota Territory Capital, on September 3 and end at the State Capitol in Pierre on September 20.

For your convenience, you can participate in any or all of the trail segments. The route includes stops in 13 towns, including Tabor, Scotland, Tripp, Parkston, Mitchell, Plankinton, Wessington Springs, and several pastures as the wagon train makes its way on roads and cross country.

The cost is $125 per participant who can then ride any or all of the 17 days of the journey.  The wagon train will supply a wagon master, outriders, toilets, water and buses to move vehicles each evening.   The participants must supply their own equipment, animals, food, livestock feed and other traveling necessities.  All fees and donations will be used to defray the costs of the wagon train.

Traveling in a wagon train for 15-17 miles a day is hard work, but it’s also a lot of fun making new friends on the ride and along the route.”- Gerald Kessler, wagon train organizer, Fort Pierre, SD.

At the time of this writing, 36 wagons and 84 people have already signed up for the wagon train from eight states – South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin and Kentucky.
