How easy would it be to get transportation from Pierre to Mt Rushmore then to Badlands NP for a night then back to Pierre? I'm guessing hiring a car would be the best option?

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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
