Welcome to Murdo the 'Magic City'

Murdo is the 'Magic City'. It is located at the crossroads of Interstate 90 and Highway 83 in the middle of South Dakota. 


What makes Murdo so 'Magical'? It is a place where strangers become friends, history comes alive and the future is embraced. Stop in at the The Covered Wagon Cafe or the Pioneer Auto Show to meet the 'locals'. They will share stories of our county history and lore about this charming community.


Murdo is the county seat of Jones County. Jones County has picturesque landscapes where the prairie meets the sky. The vast open spaces and abundant wildlife make the area known for world-class hunting and fishing. The Jones County Sportsmen's Club has expanded services for people interested in target and archery shooting to sharpen their skills.


The North Dam has been upgraded with a newly constructed picnic area and an all-weather dock which makes boating fun and relaxing.

Our City Park has a new walking path, which is wheel chair accessible, around its own water feature and covered picnic areas. Additionally, the restroom facilities at the park are universally designed.

The nine hole golf course has grass greens and golf carts for rent if you are interested in a friendly game or two! 

If you're traveling through and need accommodations for large animals, we have facilities available at the rodeo arena just north of town.


To meet your banking needs on the go, Murdo offers a branch of First Fidelity Bank and First National Bank. Dakota Prairie Bank Branch is located in Draper.


For a complete list of other shops, services and amenities available in the community, please visit the various links provided on our website.


We hope you will visit Murdo and make your own magical memories of this special place.
