We are planning a family trip from Minneapolis with 10 and 13 year old girls to the Black Hills June 28-July 6th. We want to stay first night somewhere between Sioux Falls and Mitchell in a hotel, then we will be camping in Hill City through the 5th. We want to figure out the perfect itinerary to see everything! Here is our must see list, can anyone advise the following
1. A place to stay in SF or Mitchell that we can park our 26 ft trailer the first night.
2. A day by day itinerary
3. Anything that is a must see that we haven't listed. Not as interested in Crazy Horse or waterpark type attractions. Also, any ideas on where to get discounts on some of these?
Custer State Park - Needles Highway, Sylvan Lake Maybe spend entire day, where do we start?
Mount Rushmore - which day to avoid the worst crowd
Jewel or Wind Cave
Bear Country - what time of day?
Some type of chuck wagon dinner
Maybe horseback riding for girls while husband fishes
Thanks so much!
