We skipped Crazy Horse. Still under construction and way too expensive. I feel bad for the indians but this is a rip off.

Also, you can see the Mammoth Site in Hot Springs south of the area. Wounded Knee is in the area if you're into Indian Lore. Bear Country southwest of Rapid is fun. We stayed at the Flintstoness RV Park in Custer for our granddaughter who was travelling with us that summer. If you have kids, you might want to consider it. The Needles Highway is also spectacular......don't do it with your RV though. If you're going to be there around the 4th of July,,,,remember that the fireworks display is on the THIRD of July. It's definitely the high point of all the Black Hills events to see.

If you’re looking for some fun stuff there is the Rushmore Tramway Adventures in Keystone, SD. We did the Alpine Slide there and it was a lot of fun.

You take a chairlift to the top of a mountain.


Then ride down on little sleds.


It was a blast.


At the top there was a small snack bar and picnic area and you could even see Mount Rushmore in the distance.




It’s been a few years since we were there and since then they've added a zipline, a free fall, and an aerial adventure park.

Custer State Park, Badlands and Crazy Horse are do not miss. The Devil's Tower in Wyoming is worth short drive. Wall Drug is an off-beat piece of Americano. Bear Country is a hoot. The Alpine Inn is famous for desserts and filet mignon.

Stayed at KOA out there a few years ago and it was nice. Good amenities...store/restaurant/ice cream place and at night they offered transportation to Mount Rushmore for the lighting/veterans ceremony. Cheap and well worth your time. I liked KOA, but will try another place next time. Also, there is a KOA at the base of the Devil's Tower that seemed kind of cool for a one night stay. Any motorcycle riders, best riding areas in the country can be found here. Great destination area to see a part of Americana and create some fabulous memories!

Hall drug is as waste of gas. The free doughnut for vets is a day old dry cake doughnut. If you have want a fresh one with iceing $1.50. Save yourself some time and go someplace you will enjoy.

We spent 11 days in Custer at Beaver Lake RV Park. It's a great park, one thing if you must have cell access, the only place we found to get good reception for both Verizon and AT&T is near the office. However that won't stop us from going back. Also, for dog owners there are a lot of bunny rabbits.

The highlight of our trip was visiting Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. My husband did the regular tour and I did the photographers tour. On the photo tour we were up close and personal with the horses. Our guide was great. Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary

Gasman94,,,,,We found out when we stayed at that KOA at Devils Tower that that was where the staging area for Close Encounters of the Third Kind was.

Grampa Jim, it was, which makes it cool by itself. But the area is considered sacred ground, also. There is a feeling that surrounds the tower that gives you that sense.
