Canistota is located 30 miles west of Sioux Falls and 40 miles east of Mitchell right along Interstate I-90. It's the perfect distance from larger cities to have a small town atmosphere but still be close enough to take advantage of the "big city" attractions. With a population of 700, Canistota is the perfect place to retire or to raise a family.
