Good decision!

Another week and we will start packing up and heading north to Grand Tetons, Colter Bay then into Yellowstone to west entrance and Grizzly Campground. We will be there July 1-6. Not sure what direction after that.
Any ideas?

Mike, Road construction, rough 1 lane, with flagman just after Ten Sleep as you enter big horn county. Be Prepared. Second about 5 miles before Worland same thing flagman 1 lane and rough, the one lane is dirt and rutted, still passable though. I am at Yellowstone Valley Rv between Cody and Park entrance, not a good choice due to strong wind and campground is really just massive gravel parking lot, still it on banks of Shoshone River. Safe Travels, The Big Horn Mountains are little steep and the pass is 9666ft. and several switch back on down side.

Mt. Rushmore don't want no pets. They say we can leave them in the car. Had it all planned out. Good thing I didn't make any reservations. Would of made a neat trip.

Planning a trip here in July 2013 and looking for the best spot. Here is where we are considering:

http://www.palmergulch.com

http://www.rafterj.com/

http://www.brokenarrowhorsecamp.com/

We have a Wildwood 26TBSS, two small boys, and a dog. We like the idea of rustic surroundings, space between sites, but also full services if possible, and some of entertainment for the kids (playground, pool, mini golf, etc).

If the campground doesn't have anything like that for kids, we need to be sure there is plenty of space around us for playing and exploring.

We're coming from Kansas and typically go to Colorado to escape the heat, so I'm hoping it won't be bad near Rushmore and the Black Hills.

Thanks for your replies.

Jhawkfan44, I stayed at Rafter J and I think it meets your needs, about three miles up to Rushmore and maybe 10 miles to Deadwood and 6 miles to Crazy Horse. Plenty of wide open space and a playground for kids and Pancake breakfast, nice store and gasoline. I think you and family would like it and saves a few dollars over the KOA at palmer gulch, pretty pricey since its close to Rushmore. You will love it. Are you going on to Yellowstone or is Rushmore the destination? Feel free to PM me.
