South Dakota--last minute trip; deciding where to stay in Black Hills

Jump to last reply

My summer opened up unexpectedly at work so we are planning a last minute road trip--there will be four of us, including my 10 and 7 year old boys. My tentative itinerary has us spending two nights near Badlands and three nights in Black Hills. Based on my research to date, my first choice in Black Hills would be Custer, but I can't find any cabin availability at vbro. Should I still be focusing on the southern region, to include Hill City and/or Hot Springs, or are there reasons to stay in the northern area, i.e., Deadwood, Spearfish, Lead, Sturgis?

We are not planning to go to Devil's Tower, and we will be several weeks ahead of the Sturgis rally so that is not an issue.

All thoughts appreciated, I feel very far behind in planning, but am really looking forward to this trip. Also welcome thoughts on two nights near Badlands and three in Black Hills as I try to balance the desire to minimize driving (knowing we will be doing so much) with the obvious positive of not changing places. Thanks, I've appreciate all the advice I've read in the threads.
