Fodor's Review

Open in summer, this small center serves almost exclusively serious hikers and campers venturing into the Stronghold or Palmer units. If that's you, stop here for maps and details about road and trail conditions. The center is located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. While you're here you can see fossils and Lakota artifacts, and learn about Sioux culture.
