Where is the Stratobowl in South Dakota?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me where the Stratobowl is located? The best an internet search has given me is to says it is south of Rapid City, SD. This was a created name given to an area used from the 30's to 50's to launch high altitude manned balloons.

Well I don't know if this is correct, but mapsend topo gives a location of "strato Rim overlook campground" at 43°58.83'N 103°20.52'W.

 

Delorme list it as 43°58.604'N 103°20.739'W.

I've heard of it, but I'm not sure where it is. I've heard it's hard to find. I'd check the SD Air & Space Museum (In Box Elder). I belive they have an 'exhibit' about it.

Yahoo map & driving directions also a good map. Type in Rapid City, SD to Stratosphere Bowl, SD and there you have it. It's a pretty cool place and there was a cache hidden up there. Might still be.
