Harrison, Nebraska

Here is a town with true-to-life "Old West" flavor and hospitality. Harrison, population 377, is the county seat and only incorporated town in Sioux County.

Toad Stool Park and the Hudson-Meng Bison Bone Bed about 28 miles northeast is an unusual part of the Little Badlands on the north side of the Pine Ridge Area and is considered to be one of Nebraska's outstanding attractions. Ogallala National Grassland in the northern part of the county includes 95,000 acres of natural beauty and wildlife. And right in Harrison, Sioux Sundries offers the 28-ounce hamburger of national fame that is sure to challenge any traveler who claims to have a hearty appetite.
