Mt. Rushmore/Badlands Planning Help Needed

Jump to last reply

I'm going to South Dakota in June to visit Mt. Rushmore, the Badlands, etc. I will arrive on a Thursday at 11:00 am and fly home on Monday morning. I plan to stay in Hill City.

I seek comments on my draft itineray please. Does this seem reasonable?

Thursday: Flight arrives at 11 am. Be on the road by noon. Stop for lunch somewhere en route to Hill City. Drop off luggage and go to Mt. Rushmore. If time afterwards, do the alpline slide that is nearby.

Friday: Mt. Rushmore for early morning photos. Proceed to Custer State Park to do Wildlife Loop, Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Rd. Evening lighting ceremony at Mt. Rushmore.

Saturday: Devil's Tower, WY. Is this a place that pictures don't do justice? Is it worth it to make the drive or should I spend more time in the Black Hills?

Sunday: Badlands. Should I spend my final night in Rapid City or return to Hill City?

Monday: fly home

Thanks in advance!
