How many of you have taken your dually through the tunnels? I'm going in August and am curious as to if I can take mine through.

We really enjoyed the wide open spaces of Rafter J for our Class A and it's convenient location.

Taking the truck alone, no RV, should be no problem. tunnels are wide enough. You will drive down the center anyway. They are one lane.

Just a quick note, we are at Mount Rushmore KOA (beautiful), not many people, lots of deer in campground, and what few people here are really nice. We did not try to get reservations, therefore did not know the campgrounds in this area do not open until May 1st. The folks at the KOA let us in and did not charge summer rates. Great people, beautiful campground!

We always stay at Three Flags RV in Black Hawk, SD. It's 5 miles west of Rapid City and right off I 90. It's a Passport America park, easy access and good facilities.

We stayed at Rafter J and enjoyed the wide open spaces. We drove through the KOA and found it to be pretty tightly packed.

Yes, I bet the KOA is busy during the summer, but not now and they were good enough to give us a place to stay. During the summer kids would have a ball here.

Another very pretty drive in the area is hwy. 14a through Spearfish Canyon. Stop and take the short walks to Spearfish Falls and Roughlock Falls.

Also, while you will be that close, you should at least take the drive through Badlands National Park. Warning! Some people are so fascinated with the badlands that they "get stuck" there for a few days.

When I entered the military in 1981, I was first stationed at Ellsworth AFB....was there for 13 years! Loved it!
I remember the road to Mt Rushmore was narrow and there was very few places to pass. Other roads had tunnels without the bypass for the tall campers and motorhomes.
At that time I was not RVing so we marked mid-May as the beginning of "tourist season". I remember being warned about the left exit for Rushmore on I-90..."watch for tourist on the right cutting across the interstate at the last second to avoid missing Mt Rushmore!" Boy, were they ever right! Lol
My wife's first paying job was at one of the local campgrounds near Rapid City.
Oh, the fond memories of yesterday!

We'd concur with the Rafter-J-Bar recommendation. We've stayed there many times and will do so again this fall.
