The Most Remote Places in All of Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota
247 Wall Street recently made its list of the most remote places in every state and each of these three Midwestern states has some spots that are truly in the middle of nowhere.
Each of these places was picked based on its proximity to a major city and there's a pretty good chance you've never been to any of them.
Middle of Nowhere Iowa: 3 Miles West of Titonka, Iowa
You can find this spot in the North-Central Iowa county of Kossuth. There are several small towns in this area, including Emmetsburg, Forest City, and Blue Earth, Minnesota. However, you'll have to drive 2 hours and 42 minutes to get to the nearest big city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Middle of Nowhere Minnesota: Coleman Island, Minnesota on the U.S., Canadian Border.
Coleman Island is way up in the Minnesota Boundary Waters, so if you're traveling from the nearest city of Minneapolis, you'll need to drive around three hours and forty-five minutes by car, then hop in a canoe.
It's located in far northern St. Louis County, Minnesota, right next to the border with Canada. To get a glimpse of what life is like up near Coleman Island, check out this webcam.
Middle of Nowhere South Dakota: Unnamed road, about 3 miles south of Bradley Bauer Ranch, South Dakota.
The Mount Rushmore State has plenty of spots to choose from, but according to 247 Wall Street, this area, just south of the Bradley Bauer Ranch, in West-Central South Dakota is five hours and thirty minutes from the nearest big city of Sioux Falls.
