    Re: Where to camp near Mount Rushmore..??

    I've stayed at this campground during the rally at Sturgis. It was nice and had shuttle service into Sturgis. Being a short distance outside of town made it nice during the rally if you didn't want to go through town. http://nonamecity.com/

    Re: Where to camp near Mount Rushmore..??

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Wife and I are finally getting to make this trip. It is 3 days riding to get there and plan to spend 3 days there, riding the Spearfish Canyon loop, Needles highway, and Iron Mountain Road.
    Our plans last year did not happen as wife had a gall bladder operation a week before our trip was planned, and then had complications.

    We are heading out next Tuesday, pulling our Leesure Lite with the Indian Roadmaster.

    Something to see out there at Sturgis area that a lot of people never see is at the Air Force base. They have an underground missile silo that you can tour. Still has the missile in there...

    I'm thinking we may stay one night at the KOA Palmer Gulch for the first night, and then down in Custer for the second and third night. We will be riding through Deadwood on Saturday, doing the Spearfish loop and over to the Indian Dealer in Sturgis (to get the T-shirt). Going to do Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road on Sunday.

    This is my favorite National Forest campground around Custer. Doubt if you'd need a reservation, even during Sturgis! Will be staying there again this summer during the 2nd week of Sturgis
