SD park fees - most economical option?

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to SD and NE this summer for family of four (two adults, two children) driving in a regular car - no RV - to visit several national and state parks. I'm having trouble figuring out whether it makes sense for us to pay for each park individually as we arrive, or whether we should purchase a parks pass ahead of time. We won't have an opportunity to visit US parks any other time over the next year so decisions need to be based solely on this trip. We plan to visit:
Badlands National Park
Black Hills National Forest
Mt Rushmore
Custer State Park
one more state park TBD

It looks like we need a separate parking pass for some parks in addition to admission per person - can anyone confirm this? We're staying overnight in one park (not camping) and visiting Rushmore on two consecutive days. The whole trip will be less than a week. Thanks!
