One of our absolute favorite features of autumn is the annual emergence of corn mazes. South Dakota’s rich agricultural background makes the state an excellent place for a maze. Head to the six best corn mazes in South Dakota for some family-friendly fall fun! 

1. Heartland Country Corn Maze, Harrisburg, SD

The Heartland Country Corn Maze is enjoyable for the entire family! This autumn hotspot has an 11-acre life-size maze in the corn field. This maze has a twist too!

It is open for the fall season, from around mid-August to late October. Adult admission is $8, children (five to 10 years-old) admission is $5, and children four and under are free.
