It is quite easy. Although we used Escapees for our mailbox there are other options too like Americas Mailbox.

The registration of the vehicles was very easy. Just went to Pennington County office with the title and old registration.

Getting the drivers license and voter registration was also easy. With COVID we had to schedule an appointment but even that was easy. We did need a mailbox (PMB), we needed to provide our last drivers license. We had to provide proof of residency (a receipt from one night at a campground worked for us). If I recall, there were a couple other small things that I don't fully remember. It is all on their website and it sounds like you've checked that our already.

In summary, it is easier than you think.

BLM land - there's not a ton of it in SD, but there is some, and it does have dispersed camping areas in it. No permit needed, limited to 16 day stays. The BLM office in Belle Fourche can give you the particulars.

- 605-892-7000

There's also National Forest Service land dispersed camping available in the area. Check with the NFS headquarters in the various forest areas for maps of dispersed camping areas on their Motor Vehicle Use maps. These are also available on line, on the NFS websites for the individual areas.

Just put 'yes'. Maybe you'll like South Dakota and want to keep it as a domicile but then people change their minds all the time. You're not locked into the answer!

by the way..... what are you typing on that gives you the short lines? Never seen that before.

I'm in a 28'+ Class C with 3' of motorcycle ramp hanging off the back, and I have no problems. There are a few roads I don't go down, but it's mostly pretty good. You might want to drive the Prius in separate on some of the roads. I see 30'+ trailers in many of the spots.

Forest Service and BLM roads don't get great maintenance, so they can get channeled and rutted, so your biggest concern is ground clearance. Plus, they tend to get narrower and narrower as you go down them, so you might want to scout out the roads with the Prius before heading down them, looking for turn-around spots so you don't have to back out for a long way.

Benchmark puts out an awesome atlas for each western state and I think they're starting on eastern, also. They are large scale so very easy to read.

We drove the heavier-lined marked roads with our 40' motorhome towing the Jeep and many about 20 miles from pavement. After a while if traveling the same state you'll be able to pick out many good gravel roads just by the terrain they go through. I will say we had a Jeep for exploring farther once we got the RV parked. I don't know how a Prius would do for exploring.

The atlas shows all public lands - BLM and national forest and many public campgrounds and siteseeing 'musts'. If you're going to be a one state for a long time or know that you'll return to that state they are worth it. Some years we'd spend all season in one state and explore it thoroughly. We absolutely loved them.... so much better than going by a GPS.

Here is the one for Utah:
