For thousands of years, the Lakota Sioux prized the natural warm water springs, the “Minnekahta,” in this valley. In 1890, local businessman Fred Evans built Evans Plunge over the site of numerous sparkling springs and one mammoth spring of mineral water and made Evans Plunge the Black Hills’ oldest attraction – older than Mt. Rushmore or Crazy Horse Memorial. For generations, the 87-degree water of Evans Plunge has invited visitors for rejuvenation, refreshment, relaxation and recreation. You’re invited to come and experience yesterday’s healing waters of today’s Evans Plunge, open all year round.
