Just do this. Make it a part of your trip, it’s worth it. This place is a work in progress - maybe one day it will be finished - but regardless, it’s pretty special. The cost to get in was $12 per person and then $4 per person for the bus ride to the base of the hill. You have to take the bus ride if you want to see more of the ‘front’ of his face, rather than just the side. If you stay at the welcome center at the top, you will only see half his face. You can rent a van there, to go to the very top (at his face) for $250. The museum is included in your entry fee and is pretty cool, and it includes a short movie with the history of the place- it’s not long. I recommend watching it. This place is definitely worth the visit. If you are in an RV there is a lot of parking at the top if you want to just drive on after - no steep drive at all with lots of parking. I’d say you’d want to give this place an hour or two. We had to wait 20 minutes for the bus ride - and that took somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes. The bus ride is quite short (less than 10) - they park at the base and allow you to get out to take pictures and they will give some facts and take questions

Rte 240 - if you want to experience the Badlands - you must drive this byway. It is absolutely incredible - something you will never forget.

Driving through here is amazing. Other worldly. Some pretty steep elevations, but no ‘major’ drop off areas to stress on if you don’t like that kinda thing. (Which I don’t) only a few spots got my heart racing. Lots of places to pull over and take pictures, or walk closer to the edge. BEAUTIFUL scenery. Like another planet.

A must see. This is truly an impressive sight. $10 per car - and no additional expense to enter. Has a nice gift shop and plenty of parking.

Excellent place to stay. Beautiful lake and big open sky. Quiet and clean. I’d happily stay here again. Lots of geese and corn for days.

Quaint little winery near Lake Erie, we stopped in for a tasting and were greeted by kindness from everyone. Wine was tasty - lots of sweets if you like sweet. Lighter wines so easy to drink. If you are a fan of bold cabs - you might be disappointed but if you like a light daily wine you will be sure to find a good one. $6 for tasting 6 wines. Can’t beat that. Plus they provide a nice little cheese snack tray for each person. Parking lot is not huge -and pretty full, so we had to park on the road with our trailer.

This is the perfect campground in my book. The setting is delightful. Big sky, beautiful and quiet setting. The guy who greeted us was one of the nicest guys I’ve come across. Seriously - after kindly greeting us, he hopped in his golf cart and led us to our site -we followed him in and he helped guide the perfect parking spot. He gave us all the info we might need and was on his way. This place is not over run with dogs and kids - our experience anyway - so it was calm, and wonderfully relaxing. I did not catch the gentlemen’s name that greeted us - but he was awesome and a great reflection of awesome customer service. This place took us in with only a few hours notice btw - definitely worth staying at. Lovely spot, I highly recommend.

Stayed for one night here, in September 2020. PROS: Called four hours before arrival and they were able to get us in. The campground feels safe, overall pretty clean, and has some pretty lakes to walk around. There was a friendly atmosphere, albeit crowded. CONS: This place is huge, which for many might be a pro, but for us - it was WAY too crowded. Campers are packed in like sardines, and ‘enjoying nature’ is not part of the equation with this many kids running around and dogs barking nonstop. If you have a big family with kids and dogs, this place is probably perfect for you, but if you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy nature with some peace and quiet - this place is not it. The grounds are massive, they definitely have figured out how to pack em in here. Another con - if you have any difficult parking a trailer squeezing it in tight to a small spot - this isn’t for you. We had to back in a tiny spot right between two trees that were pretty close together (which I will add I’d prefer the trees to some trailers that were just wedged between other trailers).. SO - if you like over-crowded campgrounds with barking dogs this could be for you.
