Just because the temperatures start to drop doesn’t mean you have to put your camping rig in storage. Campsites are quieter and views are snowy—it’s a wonderful time to cozy up in nature. Just make sure your RV is ready for the trip.
The Black Hills stretch across the southwest corner of South Dakota, an ancient mountain range eroded into crags, spires and deep canyons. An astounding number of attractions are packed into the region, and all are accessible from South Dakota campgrounds. On your family camping vacation, you could: Gawk at roaming buffalo in Custer State Park. Steer through Spearfish Canyon and other scenic drives. Hike a local peak or bike along the Centennial Trail through old mining towns and wildflower meadows. Of course, don’t miss the famous faces carved into Mount Rushmore and the equally grand sculpture of Lakota leader Crazy Horse. All of these great attractions are easily accessible from your tent, RV or camping cabin!
