Rutland is an unincorporated community in Lake County, South Dakota, United States. Founded in 1906, Rutland has seen its population decline since the 1930s. A fire in 1962 destroyed many of the remaining businesses. Today, businesses include: Black Studios (in an old Bethel Lutheran Church) and a student-run convenience store, The Rambler Stop.

Rutland is served by the Rutland School District, which has a single Pre-K through 12 school located in the town.
