With a strong city government and community infrastructure, Gettysburg is the Potter County county seat. The Potter County Courthouse flies a beautiful Avenue of Flags next to the Veterans Monument each Memorial Day. But if you’re just looking to get away for the weekend, come and play on Whitlock Bay located on the Missouri River’s beautiful Lake Oahe. Whitlock Bay has amazing fishing and recreational water activities to enjoy.
Recreation / Community Activities
Rich in history, you can visit our museum or our historic blacksmith shop, or take a stroll through our downtown area and neighborhoods to view some of the old buildings that helped shape our community.
There’s also a terrific golf course to take advantage of, as the Gettysburg Country Club is considered one of the best in the state–with nine holes and grass greens, not to mention a comfortable clubhouse where you can relax.
If you’re bringing children along for a visit, the Dakota Sunset Museum is a great place to see some an exciting animal display as well as learn about the mysterious Medicine Rock. There’s also a terrific park right next to the city swimming pool to relax and play the day away.
