Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park, South Dakota

The Black Hills of South Dakota are famous for the gold rush days of the 1880s, the mountainside carving of four enormous head and shoulders of four American presidents on Mount Rushmore and the ongoing carving of another mountainside monument to one of the best known Indian warriors, Crazy Horse. This area is also home to one of Americas largest herd of bison in the 71,000 acre Custer State Park. It features scenic drives, excellent trout fishing, swimming holes, hiking trails and four lovely campsites. Residing in the park is approximately 1,300 bison and a range of other wildlife that includes pronghorn antelope, deer and elk. We parked our RV for the night at Grace Coolidge Campground, located right by the side of two ponds where the trout were rising to dry flies all day long. If you’re visiting the Black Hills of South Dakota, this is one spot you won’t want to miss. Go to: www.custerstatepark.cm or www.travelsd.com
