Great Plains is a constituent region of the West Elizabeth territory in Red Dead Redemption.


Great Plains is the easternmost territory in Red Dead Redemption. It is bordered on the west by Tall Trees. The northern, southern, and eastern borders of the region consist of the shoreline of Flat Iron Lake.


The landscape of Great Plains consists primarily of rolling hills with low-lying vegetation and few trees. This region is named and modeled after the Great Plains area of the United States.

Animals that can commonly be found roaming the plains are buffalo, deer, foxes, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, and wild horses (including the American Standardbred), beaver, rattlesnakes, as well as cougars and plenty of wolves.

In addition to the animals, The Great Plains has a large number of plants, and what it lacks in variety (containing only Prairie Poppies and Golden Currant), it makes up for in quantity, Great Plains has the largest population of plants in one area, in all of the game. Due to the landscape and the visual distinctiveness of the plants, they are also among the easiest to find.
