Parking at Wall Drug, Wall South Dakota

Greetings,

Wife would like to stop at Wall Drug in Wall, SD on the way out to MT. Rushmore, SD. Anyone know what the parking and or maneuvering would be like for a 33' Class C with a Toad? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
prndl

No problem there is lots of parking for RV down the road. Stopped there last September with a 39 ft Class A. Go for it you will love it.

In addition there are two campgrounds within easy walking distance if you decide to stay a night or two.

Sorry, but I don't get the Wall Drug thing. It's just a big "old style" tourist trap that sells the same "stuff" you see in every tourist town. Maybe years ago, it was something else, and something special.........

We happened to end up in Wall after a day of exploring the Bandlands, and decided to see what Wall Drug was all about since we were right there. I'm happy to say, that we didn't go more than a mile out of our way, and didn't waste more than 15 minutes of time to park and get in and out.

But if your into "tourist shops" and like buying "tourist stuff" Wall Drug is certainly the place to do it.

that's true but we like to stop at Wall whenever we're heading that way. the ice cream and donuts are first rate and i love spending time in the gallery looking at all of the old western photographs.

Keep in mind that it's super easy to drive through the Badlands from the interstate on a half-loop good park road. Don't pass it up. You get off the interstate, do the drive and end up farther along on the interstate. It's not out of your way. The national parks also has a nice campground at the east end. You won't believe the night sky filled with stars!!

I definitely second this. Drive the loop, well worth it!

Heading west on I 90 we saw billboards for The Wall 400 miles away! It really is an interesting stop....

To each his own. I grew up and lived in or near a tourist town (San Francisco) for most of my life and the same thing can be said about Pier 39 or Fisherman's Wharf in the City. Almost every tourist stops there; the Natives, like myself, mostly avoided these places. Why go into a tourist shop in your hometown?

When we pass through Wall, SD, however, we become the tourists. It is a fun place to stop and grab a meal, coffee and a donut. I think it would be even more fun for a family with small children as they have a lot to offer that demographic.

As I said, to each his own; it is touristy but fun for us. YMMV.

You can spend hours looking at all of the old Western pictures.
