MOUNT RUSHMORE NATIONAL MEMORIAL
Less than 4 miles from our 3 properties, Mt. Rushmore National Memorial features 60-foot granite carvings of the faces of 4 famous U.S. presidents. This amazing sculpture gazing out over the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota is truly a spectacular sight. Since it’s so close, you and your family won't want to miss their special Evening Lighting Ceremony, too.
CUSTER STATE PARK
Travel through the impressive granite spires of Needles Highway to Custer State Park where an abundance of wildlife—including deer, antelope, mountain goats, and a herd of 1,300 bison—roam freely through the park, often stopping traffic along the 18-mile Wildlife Loop Road. For a bite to eat, stop by the State Game Lodge, which served as President Calvin Coolidge’s Summer White House, and then head over to nearby Sylvan Lake for some great trout fishing.
BADLANDS NATIONAL PARK
Take a scenic drive to Badlands National Park, where millions of years of erosion have revealed a remarkable maze of canyons exposing dramatic and surreal layers of sedimentary rock. Explore Fossil Trail where three-toed horses and saber-toothed cats were found. While hiking, watch for bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets—the most endangered land mammal in North America.
CRAZY HORSE MEMORIAL
On your return from Custer State Park, stop by Crazy Horse Memorial – a monument currently being carved on Thunderhead Mountain which depicts Crazy Horse, a legendary Oglala Lakota warrior and leader, riding a horse with his arm outstretched and pointing into the distance. Commissioned by Henry Standing Bear and started in 1947 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski, the finished face of Crazy Horse is expected to be 87 feet high, and the entire sculpture 563 by 641 feet.
