Trip report-S.Dakota with 3 grandkids

Jump to last reply

Just returned from a fun trip to the Black Hills with 3 grandkids(7 year old twins and an 11 year old). Arrived there on Aug.13 so Sturgis Rally was about over. Camping and attractions were not busy--even Mt. Rushmore had fewer people than we have experienced in the past.

Stayed one night at Flintstone campground-the kids enjoyed it. It is older, but the bathrooms were clean and the pool was great. Camp sites were okay-no shade to speak of, but grassy and large.

We liked Center Lake CG in Custer State Park. It is smallish, shady and grassy. A very small creek runs through it and the kids enjoyed that. The lake, which is walking distance from the campground, has a swim beach and the lake looked clean. Showers are located there, not in the campground.

Also stayed at North Stockade CG-it was fine as well.

Kids really liked Wall Drug-we'd been there several times before and still get a kick out of some of the stuff.

Last day drove to Devil's Tower and camped before heading home to Colorado. We have always liked Devil's Tower and the campground.

If you are anywhere near Ft. Laramie in southeastern Wyoming, be sure to visit. A great history lesson for everyone.
