You might want to avoid the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally August 8-14. 700,000 visitors give or take and lots of bikes on the roads. Campgrounds double their prices that week if you can even get in. The Badlands just east of the Black Hills is a loop off the interstate so easy to do. Very unique landscape and interesting so worth doing. Don't miss the beautiful Needles Drive in the Black Hills. Don't take your rv on that road because there are tunnels and switchbacks. Some tunnels are planned to give you a view of Mt. Rushmore as you drive through them. Mt Rushmore has a nightly program and lighting which is nice. You buy a parking permit for there and can use it for the year so can visit during the day if you want to take the walks around the area and go back at night for the program. Just west a short drive into Wyoming is Devils Tower which is an interesting sight also. You will find lots of information at the manned rest stops.

Trip from Eastern PA to Mt. Rushmore

Been to Rushmore many times. It's great trip bad lands wall drug hot springs crazy horse needles highway deadwood black hills and Devils tower. And the town of a Alladen population was 11 people last year . The question is how much time do you have to see everything . I also like the southern rt to St. Louis staying away from tolls and chicgo. Also Custer state park got to see the buffalo

Lot of people talking Henry Ford where do you stay when there? We have made a day trip out of it from NE Ohio but would like to go up and stay a few days.

Henry Ford, Deerfield Village and the Ford assembly plant are all next to each other an d each deserve a one day visit. CG nearest is county run and another is in Ypsilanti, MI. Indiana Dunes State Park is worth a stay if you're continuing west.

One thing to check before you go make sure it is not during the Sturgis Bike week. I was going thru SD back to Wa from my son's wedding and I saw a lit Hiway sign saying there were no Hotel rooms within 50 miles of Sturgis and I would guess the same for campgrounds. But do see Mt Rushmore, Deadwood and also the Devils Tower nearby in WY.
