We had a one night stop at Devil's Tower, drove to Custer State Park for 3 nights then a drive though the Badlands to Murdo. SD. We stayed in the park but there are several private campgrounds in the area to choose from. You'll be close to Mt. Rushmore of course, but there is the Needles Hwy to do (in the toad) and the wildlife loop in Custer. There is also the Chief Crazy Horse Memorial that is worth a stop. OR.... you could stay in Sturgis or Rapid City and still see Rushmore and enjoy that end of the Black Hills.

We did not stay in the Badlands but drove through and stayed in Murdo next to the Pioneer Auto Museum. That is an amazing collection of anything on wheels & very interesting.

There is a lot to do in that area. Have fun!

We stayed inside Custer State Park. At the RV park on the SW side of the park. Drove our coach thru the park. They don't recommend this at the gate but it is very doable. Can see lots better from up high. Ha

I agree with Karen on the pioneer auto museum in Murdo SD. It's is right on the North side of the interstate at the exit. There is a RV park one block west of museum.

In the Badlands area there is a decommissioned missile silo that is now run by the Park Service. They are open for public tours one day a week and you must make a phone reservation. Worth seeing.

There are several FHU parks in the town of Wall. Nothing wonderful and breathtaking but very adequate for a day(night) or two. Badlands entrance is very close
We have stayed at Arrow a few times and likely will overnite there again
