Create an itinerary including Porter Sculpture Park
Porter Sculpture Park is located just off Interstate 90 in Montrose, South Dakota (about 25 miles west of Sioux Falls, on the eastern edge of McCook County). It is on the South Dakota Drift Prairie, only 1/4 of a mile off of the interstate. There are over 50 sculptures in the Park which is situated on 10 acres. Many of the sculptures, in the style of industrial art, were made with scrap metal, old farm equipment, or railroad tie plates. The largest sculpture in the park is a 60-foot-tall (18 m) bull head. This sculpture took three years to build, weighs 25 tons, and is equal in size to the heads of Mount Rushmore.

  • We were looking for a nearby outdoor excursion while visiting family in Sioux Falls and decided to venture out to the Porter Sculpture Park. It was an easy drive out to the park easily accessible...

  • What a unique and fun road side attraction! Also a harvest host location. The owner/artist is a great guy with a wild imagination! So fun to spend a night here on our way across i-90
  • This place is AWSOME. Well worth the slight detour off the highway & $10. Wayne (or maybe Wade?) Is very quirky, just like his art. It's amazing to think of what it took to build these. Many have profound or funny poems to go with them. On a slight rise so there's a good view of the surrounding countryside.
