Mud Butte is a former village, now a diffuse unincorporated community, located in northern Meade County, South Dakota, United States. It roughly lies along U.S. Route 212, 55 miles northeast of the city of Sturgis. Its elevation is 2,871 feet (875 m). It lies within ZIP code 57758, which is served by the post office at Opal.
Mud Butte was named for a nearby barren butte—that is, an isolated hill with steep sides and a flat top. In 1981, archeologists digging around in Mud Butte unearthed the sixth Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered, after a local rancher finally got around to calling a museum about the dinosaur bones he’d seen jutting out of a cliff on his property for years.
