Hello from Illinois

New to this forum but not RVing or camping or campering as we call it. We're headed west next month to visit the Black Hills in SD and Devils Tower in WY.

We did that in 2009 when we had a POP-UP. Also, went to the Grand Tetons & Yellowstone.
Where are you staying?

to the FRF! I think you might had answer that question about if RVing is really camping. Guess the answer is campering.

In Hill City, we stayed at Rafter J Bar Ranch-beautiful!
And Devil's Tower KOA- which was OK- but the tower was right behind us.
Nice to see someone new from Illinois on here. Have a great trip!

Welcome. We did that same trip in '07 with a 1 night stop at the Badlands along the way. We did the obligatory stop at the Corn Palace on the way back. Make sure you do the night fireworks at Mt Rushmore.

We did a similar trip back in 05. although we went all the way to Glacier NP to meet my cousins. they moved to Kalispell MT from Crystal Lake IL. we stayed at Flintstones Campground in Custer SD. OK campground, nice little Flinstones theme park out front. on the way back we stayed at Horsethief Campground near Hill City, on Needles HWY. we loved that campground, beautiful Black Hills setting.

Where are you from in IL. we live in Bartlett.

Edit: I see from the pics in your Blog we keep our trailers at the same storage yard, funny! I have the the covered trailer in the other back corner of the yard.

Have a great trip!
