Plan on spending just one day making a drive around the area checking place to do and see for the next week. I have been there twice and still missed some neat places.
I am guessing since you will be coming in from LA area probably running I-80 all the to around Cheyenne, WY and then cutting north to the Black Hills. I would recommend coming in from the west or south and stay in the Custer area. It's pretty central to everything. Rapid City is not much to see. Deadwood is pretty crowded last I was there but worth a visit. Custer State Park is a must see. Engineers Highway and The Needles are a must see. Keystone is a funky little tourist trap but a good place for a lunch stop or afternoon ice cream.
Crazy Horse memorial is worth every bit of the admission price. I could go on forever about the place.

I hope it's not June of 16. I'm going this summer, hill city, West Yellowstone, grand Tetons, and Jackson WY. I did my res. Before Christmas 2015 and they were almost full. This yr. Is 100yr. Anniversary and it will be full of people from around the world.
Don't give me meds.
Just let me camp!!!!!

Please see the Needles in your tow vehicle. We were there last year for Sturgis and somehow a MH was trying to go through and ended up having to back out until he could turn around. A lot of unhappy people.

Talking

We loved the area. Our favorite was Crazy Horse! We were there in early May last year, so the crowds were limited but it was still cold. Well, cold for southern Californians!
Have fun!

Great idea! Just talked to my hubby as we're headed back to the east coast again this October. We are definitely planing a 'getting to know you' day at each of our scheduled stops! Should add about 10 days but it'll be well worth it!
