What would be the latest that you would travel to South Dakota, from the midwest. I'm looking at the end of October and was wondering about the late fall early winter weather, for road conditions, and locations around Mt. Rushmore, Custer National Park etc to park the Class C.

Thanks everyone.

Some winters there is no snow in the hills, spring is the time to watch out for those big blizards.

The dw and I have been out to Keystone for a long weekend in mid oct and it has been quite pleasant and not atall crowded You may want to check ahead for hotel rooms as a lot of places closeup for the season in oct. YOU CAN USUALLY find great deals on t-shirts and sweatshirts and other trinkets as most places want to clear them out have fun PS if you can go to Mount Rushmore at nite What a veiw

Thanks Jestme13 and j2detoit for the information, promised the DW that I would take her to Mt Rushmore this year will be travelling in a Class C.

Would either of you recommend any parks, state, national or private.

You need to watch the weather before you go. Spent 4 days there over a school breakin mid OCT a few years ago and the weather was beautiful: 60's and clear blue skies. All the junk was closed for the season, but all the state and federal parks were open.

Finding a campground still open can be a challenge.
