Black Hills and Mt Rushmore

Jump to last reply

We are a couple with a 2 year old daughter. We are planning a roadtrip trip to the Black Hills from Minneapolis this labor day. Need help in critiquing and providing advice around our itinerary planned as follows

Day 1: Depart Minneapolis, stay at Sioux Falls, SD
Day 2: Drive to Badlands, stay inside the park at Cedar pass lodge (Visit Corn Palace, Mitchell enroute)
Day 3: Visit Reptile Gardens then drive to and stay at Keystone, SD (via Hwy 44). Drive Needles Hwy in the afternoon and visit Mt Rushmore in the night.
Day 4: Visit Mt Rushmore in the morning, then drive to and stay at Hot Springs via Custer State Park (Iron Mountain Road, Wildlife Loop)
Day 5: Visit Mammoth Site. Drive to and stay at Custer. Visit Jewel Caves
Day 6: Drive to and stay at Deadwood, SD. Visit Crazy Horse enroute.
Day 7: Drive back towards Minneapolis. Visit Wall Drugs and stay at Chamberlain for the night.
Day 8: Reach Minneapolis

Anything we are missing and should add? Any portion that's rushed? Would it be possible to fit in Devils Tower....is it worth it? Anything else thats offbeat but interesting and worth exploring in the area.
