Trip Report Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Badlands Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Not a lot of recent action in the South Dakota Forum, but I was able to glean quite a bit of information from prior posts to help in our planning. Many thanks to the contributors.

Our family of 4 (DD17, DD14) spent 8 nights in South Dakota as a road trip from Indiana:
1 night in Sioux Falls
5 nights in Custer (VRBO)
1 night in Wall (Frontier Cabins)
1 night in Sioux Falls on return

We focused on the National Park Service and Custer State Park options in the area. Specifically:

NPS sites visited:
Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave, Wind Cave, Minuteman Missile, Badlands, Devil's Tower

Custer SP:
3 scenic drives, Harney Peak, Sunday Gulch, Prairie Loop Trail

Other Black Hills:
Spearfish Scenic Byway (Roughlock Falls & Devil's Bathtub hikes), DC Booth Fishery

Sites along the way:
[Sioux] Falls Park, Corn Palace, Chamberlain Rest Area (Lewis & Clark)

Thanks again!
