Mount Rushmore RV Park

Good Day, We're headed to Mount Rushmore with 2 kids and 3 corgi's. We're not traveling with a Toad so we're looking for someplace that is a great place for the kids, dogs, adults and is within walking distance to Mount Rushmore. We might rent a car in Rapid City if you can recommend a better place to stay at a distance. The kids are excited.

I can not suggest one CG over another as I have only been there once and peoples preferences differ greatly.

What I will suggest is no matter where you stay rent a car, you will be glad you did.

Crazy Horse.
Deadwood city.
Lead.

We stayed at Palmer Gulch KOA Resort, it is very nice horse back riding, ATV rentals 2 pools you name it it is there. Right at the base of Mt Rushmore, I guess you could walk if you wanted but there is so much to see around there you would really be missing out if you do not have a vehicle to travel the area in. We spent 4 days there and wished we would have had another 3 or more to see everything that that entire are has to offer as there is so much history around there.

Campgrounds ever were out there. I definitely would rent a car. With kids a drive thru Custer State Park would be a must if I were you.

Then up the needles HWY to Mt Rushmore. Not sure what you have for an RV but there is plenty of parking at Rushmore for any size vehicle.

Use a car or truck only when traveling the Needles Hwy or The Iron Mt. Road. It gets tight going the tunnels in the mountains.

Toward the south end of Custer the donkeys are there. Might buy some carrots to feed them. I'd buy a bag of those short carrot pieces.
