Mt Rushmore

Looking for recommendations for a place to camp near Mt Rushmore. Planing on a week to ten days in that area this spring or summer. Also would like a recommendation on where to stay near St Paul MN for a week or so.

We are staying in that area for 2 days in August. I booked at Fort Welikit Campground, honestly I have never stayed there but from my research it seemed like a good CG. It is about 30 minutes from MT Rushmore...

Black Hills Campground

I have camped at Custer State Park several times in a 22' trailer. They have several campgrounds to choose from. You can check out the campsites at campsitephotos.com before you reserve a site.
Be sure to drive the Needles Highway while you are in the area. One tunnel on the highway frames Mt Rushmore in the distance.

Crooked Creek Resort just south of Hill City. Real close to Mt Rushmore. Have stayed there the past 7 years.

Hard to beat Rafter J. Another nice small campground is Big Pine in Custer. Big pine is great if you don't want to be around a lot of kids, they don't have swimming pool just nice campsites in the tall pines. We took our family and friends to Rafter J two years ago and got four sites on the Island and had a great time, lots of things to do for kids and very close to all attractions.

If you like wilderness, Custer State Park is wonderful, make sure to drive the wildlife loop.
If you want comfort, the KOA Mt Rushmore is nice (I have dumped there and tent camped there).
