Which kind of transport connections do exist between Sioux Falls and Yankton ? I need to come early in the morning from Sioux Falls to Yankton ? I prefer public transportation (autobus etc)
Thank you in advance :)
Hi, I am looking for an RV park near Mt Rushmore to stay for the night. Will be coming from SW Michigan through Mt Rushmore to Yellowstone. I will have a 40' RV with a dog. Not sure who will still have openings for the end of June. Also, what else is there interesting to see on the way out to Yellowstone?
We'll only have time for one cave, so I'd like to know which one is better in terms of the formations and overall experience. We have two kids (10 & 8),do we'll just do a walking tour, not the extreme spelunking tours.
Hello All, I am visiting South Dakota at the end of June and will have one week. We are flying round trip from Rapid City. I am trying to figure out what areas we should stay during our trip to maximize our time. My wife and I will be traveling with our son who will be 5 months old. Things I want to see are MT Rushmore & Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, The Corn Palace, Wall Drug, Badlands NP and Deadwood. I am wondering if I should stay only in the Rapid City area or stay in more than one location? Are there any suggestions for other things worth visiting? Are there any Native American sites to see asides from Crazy Horse? Can we get out for a detour to stop in to another state (prob not worth missing other things) Thanks in advance for your responses and help!
We are planning a trip to the Mt. Rushmore and surrounding areas in July. We are trying to decide how much time to allow to see this area without feeling rushed. Would 7 days be enough to see everything (Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wall, Badlands, etc). Thanks for any information you can provide. Michael
I'm planning a trip to SD about mid September flying in to Rapid City from Sydney,Australia/LAX. Routes via Colorado or Utah ny idea which is the best? I will not be driving and relying on tours/bus etc. I've found a 6 day tour taking in the Buffalo Round Up and Badlands NP which sounds great - any ideas on other places to visit when I could use bus trips??? Then I would like to go to ND - best way to get there - what city? Hope someone might advise and help plan - I'm in my 70s and can get around quite well, but won't tackle a car on my own. Cheers
Will be bringing a motor coach tour of senior citizens to RC around the first of June. Presently planning about 3 hours at Rushmore, 3 hours at Custer State Park and 2 hours at Crazy Horse.Since I see a lot of comments that an esrly morning or late afternoon visit to Custer SP is best, could some one give me an efficient route (includind the route through Custer SP) to visit all three starting with Custer SP. Some back tracking would be OK. We will be coming from Cheyenne Blvd in RC and continuing to Deadwood.Any help with this question or any other info that would be helpful would be appreciated.
Presently bringing a motorcoach tour to RC in the spring. had a lot of requests to shop for Black Hills gold. Probably stupid question but is there a place, with many vendors, possible snack bar etc. where the women can shop without just going to one store? Thanks
Will be doing a motorcoach tour thru in the spring What is the recommendation for best experiencing the Badlands. Highway 240 or 44? (considering I'd also like to visit Wall. Thanks for any info.
We are travelling from the UK to see Mount Rushmore this September and from there would like to travel the Custer State Park wildlife loop and the Peter Norbeck scenic route and it seems that these might be the same route as I can't seem to find out exactly where they run and whether it's possible to do all of this in one day. If any one has any information they think could help us we would be grateful.
I have been exploring various travel options during the July 4 long weekend. One of the idea is to travel to Mount Rushmore. Plan is to start day 1 afternoon and stay in a location inbetween like sioux falls (approx: 240 miles). Then travel the rest next day and see Mount Rushmore in the evening of day 2. Visit again day 3 morning and then spend time in seeing other attractions like Crazy horse etc till day 3 afternoon and stay travelling 250+ miles towards minneapolis to return back on day. Questions I have is, how will the traffic in this route, any travel tips and attractions outside President's memorial. I also travelling with 2 kids aged 6 and 2.5 and attractions suiting them will be of greathelp.

One of the sites to see in a visit to Deadwood is the forested mountain just outside of Deadwood. On this mountain are the graves of famous historical figures and on top a unique rock formation called Whiterocks. There was a road to the top in the mid 1990s. Is that road still there?
We are traveling in an RV from Lincoln to Mount Rushmore. We would like to make a one night stop on the way, any ideas where to overnight? We have two children ages 6 and 10. We want to stay 2-3 nights in the Mount Rushmore area for sight seeing, so more ideas as to where to stay and what to see are needed. We then want to spend one night somewhere between Mount Rushmore and Freeman -more ideas needed. Freeman is located near the Iowa border by Sioux City. Lastly, is there anything interesting to see in Sioux Falls? Any input would be totally appreciated. Thank you!
How much does it cost to JUST visit Mt Rushmore?
Shat are the days and hours for Christmas in the Attic?
I'm traveling w/business to Sioux Falls and have always wanted to visit Mt. Rushmore so am considering a trek to Rapid City and flying back to NC from there... any suggestion on best way to make the trek - rental car or is there a regular tour bus line?? Thanks (0:
We have an anniversary coming up at the end of October. My hubby has always wanted to see Mt. Rushmore and Devils Tower. We would be renting a car. So what kind of road conditions can we expect? Would September be better? We sure don't want to drive in Ice or snow.
We are planning on going to the buffalo roundup in Sept. Does anyone know if the campgrounds are packed full during the roundup? We would like to stay at Center Lake campground but, if I understand correctly, you can't make reservations ahead of time at Center Lake campground. Is that correct? Any info on the roundup and camping would be appreciated. Thanks.
We will be 3 days/ 4 nights in RC SD. Looking particularly for good photo sites. Obiously Rushmore, what else is on the must see list? What is the best tour route through the area (Custer, etc)? Looks like lots of choices.
Me and my soon-to-be-new-husband will be roadtripping in late August, and we'll be stopping by the black hills area. We are not sure if we should spend one or two whole days in black hills (we'll be arriving in late afternoon one day and leaving early morning the day)? Pretty much the stuff we want to do are: Mount Rushmore Custer state park Some gold mine place (which one?) Some cave (I'm thinking Jewel Cave) And do you think the following are worth it? storybook island dinosaur park journey museum museum of woodcarving thunderhead falls reptile gardens bear country usa cosmos four mile ghost town crazy horse memorial We haven't booked our accomodation yet, but probably will be in Custer or Hill City
My son's FIL made camping reservations at a Oreville campground near the park. I am having a dickens of a time finding a link to be able to make another reservation near them. I was invited, but was not sure I could go until after he made the reservation.
We are staying for two nights in a camping cabin the Game Lodge area. The only other area open for the other two nights of our stay is in either in the Game Lodge area or the South Stockade area. I cannot find any pictures of the South Stockade area. Has anyone stayed at this campground? What is it like and would you recommend it over the Game Lodge area? It will be myself, my husband, and our 9 year old daughters. Thanks.
We will be visiting Deadwood and surrounding area for about four days in September. Can anyone suggest hotels in this area and things to do? In Deadwood, we would like to stay at a casino. Thanks

My family (2 adults, a teen and preteen) will be in SD 8/10-8/20 and we're doing last minute planning. Ideally we'd like to combine camping with cabin stays, but we won't be bringing our camping gear on the plane, so we're looking for just the right cabin or cabins. Unfortunately, we haven't been having much success with Googling for a cabin. We'd really like to be somewhat away from other houses and cabins and noise. (It's not that we're anti-social, it's just that we live in a big city and look forward to peace and quiet on vacation.) So the cabin should be relatively isolated, near water if possible, views would be great, on or adjacent to enough land to walk or bike through, un-modern facility and oh yes, reasonable price. What I keep finding is lodges with a few dozen cabins, or camps with a bunch of cabins, big expensive 4 or 5 bedroom Sturgis rentals, etc, We'd love it if someone could recommend either a particular cabin (best) or at least some means of finding something closer to what we're looking for. Thanks. Rob
Hi, We are still planning our frequently delayed cross-country drive. I understand that the trip between Sioux Falls and Rapid City SD is looong and boooring. We are not on a timetable and would like some info about interesting(if any)minor detours along this leg of our trip. We are NOT campers, hikers, fishermen, or the usual outdoors type. Please see our home page, or check my previous posting on this forum for more details about our preferences. We will be taking the northern route first. Thanks, Irv
Searching the Internet, I noticed that Deadwood is a casino town. Booking a room in a hotel in Las Vegas is quite anonymous, so no problem when not gambling, but what about booking a room in a small historic Deadwood hotel? Are you supposed to gamble when staying in a casino -hotel such as the Bullock hotel or the Franklin hotel?
We've done Utah-very pretty; actually awesome. Love Colorado. Looking for something different-really want to see Yellowstone-would like to see Mount Rushmore. 17 year-old daughter is stuck in car with parents, but loves to read. Husband used to night shift. Will be driving at night from Texas. What else should we see? How would you do it?
Good Day Everyone, We are planning our first trip to South Dakota for the September 2009 timeframe. Our plan is to fly into Denver, drive up through Wyoming (making stops along the way) and then head to the Mount Rushmore area. After pouring through our AAA guides, AAA maps, and National Park Books, we have a pretty good idea of what National Parks we want to go to. We are thinking of staying in the Mount Rushmore area for 3 days (1 day trip to Devil's Tower/Deadwood/Sturgis and 1 day trip out to Wall (Wall Drug of course), Minuteman Missile, and Badlands and the third day check out Mt. Rushmore, Jewel Cave, Wind Cave, etc. We are trying to get a feel if we should stay there 3 days or 4. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
