We are currently on our way to MT Rushmore KOA Palmer Gulch. Glad to hear that it was a nice place to stay.

Mount Rushmore is awesome and a must-see. There is so much to see in the area. Custer State Park is great (must see the eye of the needle on Needles Highway). We stayed at Spokane Creek Campground. Custer State Park is mainly for autos; you must get directions from the campground on how to get in with the motorhome. The great sights in the area were Crazy Horse Monument, Wind Cave Nat'l Park (cave not that great), Deadwood, Devils Tower; to mention a few.

Mt Rushmore is the first attraction of that type that I did not feel ripped off after eating. The hot dog stand was expensive but cafeteria was good food and cheap. Also the entrance pass is good for a while. (Season maybe)

Agreed, we went the first time to Mount Rushmore for bfast. Had a pretty good meal while looking at the mountain as a view. The parking pass is good for a year but only for that vehicle.

The Badlands also should be on the list of have to see. The kids enjoyed becoming "Junior Rangers" at many of the national parks.

I suggest the Cowboy Dinner show. Just did it over the July 4th week, it was great. Also, that KOA put our Camp Ground (Spokane Creek) to shame. Wish we had booked there.

On my way to Mt Rushmore now. Picked the worst week to visit the area. Sturgus motorcycle rally starts today. RV parks are super expensive this week, however we got a good deal at a Woodall rated park with a 9+ rating. Heartland RV Park in Hermosa, SD. Arrive Wednesday, August 10. They said we would see a bunch of motorcycles but they will leave 4 days after we get there. Our last 4 days should be less wild. Heartland is at the southern end of the bad lands and about 20 min from Mt Rushmore and 30 min from CrazyHorse. Going to spend 8 days touring all the attractions and going
to ride the 1880's train from Keystone to Hill City and back.

Spent 10 days there over the 4th. Good base of operations. A little noisy traffic but you get used to it. Pay the $20 for Custer state park. Good for a week and well worth it.

We just finished a trip to Mt Rushmore. Stayed at the Mt Rushmore KOA Palmer Gulch. Great place for families. We rented a car there as well.

Here are some pictures and videos.
