When you visit Mount Rushmore be sure to see both sides.

Front view.



The other side.

Yes they do, we had our Shiatsu with us. The host recommended making sure he was inside when a bison was in the campground. We just watched from a distance.

The dog didn't want anything to do with the bison though! Somehow he knew before we did that is was in the area and wanted in the camper and usually got in his crate. When he did get a little braver, he would watch out the window, he never said a word.


We stayed at Rafter J our first trip and it was nice. Needed something a little cheaper this time and wasn't disappointed.

I stayed at rafter J bar this past June, middle of June was 75-85 degrees. Enjoyed the whole area and would like to go back for another week in 2014 as it was only a couple day stop on the way to Yellowstone and grand Tetons.

Scene from our site.

So where did you stay on your second trip? I think I missed that reference somewhere. Where are people staying where bison are roaming through daily?

We went to South Dakota Labor Day week 2012. Inside Custer State Park the buffalo and other wildlife roam free. There is a loop drive (I think about 18 miles) that is inside the park where we saw all sorts of wildlife and buffalo by the hundreds. Check out my photo album on my profile. We camped right in Custer as well at Grace Coolidge campground and one morning we had six mountain goats show up for breakfast. We also saw buffalo patties right on the lawn of the campground but they never actually visited while we were there. Saw a few just up the road from the campsite.

We stayed at the Legion Lake Campground in Custer State Park.
