Bigger and more important than Mount Rushmore.

The first weekend in June and the last weekend in September they offer a volksmarch up to the face of Crazy Horse. It’s an event not to miss. They light up the cravings most evenings in the summer.

Much more than Mt. Rushmore! This is a whole cultural center with multiple exhibits of Native Artifacts, a great book store, Native Dance Performances during tourist season, a good restaurant, and most importantly a small college for Lakota Youth. While you will rarely see Native Americans at Mt…

“Custer State Park is a South Dakota State Park and wildlife reserve in the Black Hills, United States. The park is South Dakota's largest and first state park, named after Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer. The park is home to a herd of 1,500 bison.[2] Elk, coyotes, mule deer, white tailed deer, mountain goats, prairie dogs, bighorn sheep, river otters, pronghorn, cougars, and feral burros also inhabit the park. The park is known for its scenery, its scenic drives (Needles Highway and the wildlife loop), with views of the bison herd and prairie dog towns. This park is easily accessible by road from Rapid City. Other nearby attractions are Wind Cave National Park, Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave National Monument, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Badlands National Park.

“Great day trip from Lead. Be sure and take the hike around the monument if you have time. Look for the mountain climbers! Visit the little Prairie Dog Town on the way up.”

National Park
“Deep beneath the vast expanse of the golden, windswept prairie in western South Dakota is the seventh-longest cave in the world and one of the most complex cave systems, a subterranean realm of maze-like passageways, water-carved rock formations and delicate mineral growths. Wind Cave has long been considered a sacred place for Native Americans. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt signed the bill that created Wind Cave National Park, the fi rst cave in the nation to be designated as a national park. The park also features more than 30 miles of hiking trails above ground, offering ample opportunities to spot bison, elk and other wildlife roaming freely. When it comes to hiking trails, Wind Cave National Park Ranger Tom Ferrell recommends Rankin Ridge. The 1-mile loop "goes to the highest point in the park with great views. While the fi re tower is closed, the view from the base is wonderful, especially at dawn or sunset," Ferrell says. After advocates brought attention to the fact that only 1,000 bison existed in the U.S. in 1913, Wind Cave received 14 of the animals from the New York Zoological Society. Today, some 500 bison roam the park, favoring prairie dog towns and fresh burn sites for their short grasses. Chat with a ranger upon your arrival to learn of the herd’s latest whereabouts.

“This is the largest active Mammoth site in the United States and a great treat for all the family. The introductory film is well done. Geologic specimens and panels before you even enter the enclosed site are very useful in understanding the Black Hills. Inside, you can walk through the site and the interior exhibits are also very informative. Did you know that there were two kinds of Mammoths in North America?”

Natural Feature
“Just East of Sturgis. Hike our beautiful Bear Butte or "Mato Paha" as it's called by the Lakota and Sioux. Great hike but be prepared to get a good work out. No dogs allowed and small kids may need several breaks. A religious site and important landmark to the native tribes; you'll see dozens of prayer cloths as you climb. It truly is an awakening experience and the view from the top is absolutely incredible. ”
