About Platte

Platte is the epitome of picturesque, small-town America. Located 14 miles east of the Missouri River in south-central South Dakota, Platte is a family-friendly community home to a thriving agricultural background, a strong educational system, and traditional, Midwestern values. Platte is thriving with diverse businesses and unique shopping opportunities. From antiques and consignments to boutiques, hardware and variety stores, you just never know what treasure might be waiting for you when you experience real hometown shopping and service.

Platte has something to offer everyone--visitors and residents alike. In addition to boasting some of the best hunting and fishing opportunities in the state, Platte also has many community attractions. Take in a movie in the restored historic Lyric Theatre. Enjoy a day at one of the city parks. Spend a summer afternoon playing a round at Lake Platte Golf Course, or take in a baseball game at American Legion Memorial Field. Retrace the steps of history as you take a walk on the Lewis and Clark Trail or learn more about Platte at the Cecil & Phyllis Melcher Museum.

If you’re looking for a place to raise your children, enjoy the outdoors and appreciate a true sense of community, then you’ve come to the right town, because it’s possible in Platte.
