Mt. Rushmore and the Black Hills Travel Guide



Camping is one of this region's strengths. There are countless campgrounds in the Black Hills and the Badlands. Most of the public land within the national forests and parks is open for camping, provided that you don't light any fires. Keep in mind when selecting your campsite that although the Black Hills don't have any native bears, there is a significant population of mountain lions.
