I have to disagree with the comments on Crazy Horse. I visit the area every year for the Sturgis Bike Rally and Crazy Horse is the one thing we make sure we see every year. It is being built with private funds and I look at my entry fee as my donation to that cause. It is loaded with Indian history and culture. The night time show there is far superior to the one at Mount Rushmore. I saw them both last year. In fact we went back to watch the Crazy Horse show a second time. I leave for my South Dakota trip in the morning and I'll be visiting Crazy Horse next Wednesday or Thursday for about the 20th time.

Unlike rushmore that was funded by the government , crazyhorse is all public donations and the price of admission . this is what pays for crazyhorse . yes you can see it from the road and it will be nice when finished maybe my granddaughter will see it complete . so paying to go in see the movie and the exhibits is well worth it the price of $33 for 4 people . so it isn't really all about the money except for whats needed to run it and work on it . much better then having to pay to get into national parks that not only charge you entrance fees but collect tax payer money also

Plans are to arrive in Custer Tuesday. I am staying at the Custer / Mount Rushmore KOA four nights, then I don't know where I am staying three nights, then we move to Chris' Camp in Spearfish for two weeks. While in Custer we will do the southern stuff like Needles Highway, Crazy Horse, Hill City, Custer State Park, and Keystone. We don't hit the rally stuff too heavy. We usually hit downtown Sturgis once. We usually see the well known places like Devil's Tower, Mount Rushmore, Bear Butte, and the biker bars every other year or so hitting some in one year and the others another year. We do a lot of relaxing and spend a little time in Deadwood. We go early and leave late. We like to miss the heavy traffic both coming and going and it's fun watching the bikers arrive and then leave a week later.

I pulled my 38' Columbus 320RS with a bike trailer behind it last year on both loops with no problems. The Interior KOA was very nice. I spent a couple of nights there. There is another nice looking RV park at Cowboy Corner. I could probably find the name and number if anyone needed it. I then took the back road into Rapid City on my way to Custer. Again no problem.

I'll keep an eye out for that hat roaming around . I have friends that live there . they have a house in boulder canyon between deadwood and sturgis . we do all the rides also and enjoy the rally , hitting all the vendor booths , always one night out where we get dropped off and picked up so we can just have fun and not ride . one eyed jacks is where we do our night out mostly or at least we always end up there .
I'm riding out from West Yellowstone leave on the 6th

Enjoy and be safe. Crazy Horse will be the destination, when it is a little further along. I may have to give it more of a chance next time we go back, based on your comments.

By the way. You're only about 10 miles from me. I live in Liberty, MO, just down the road! Maybe we can swap stories some time? Keep it wheels down and between the ditches!
