Don't let the names fool you: when it comes to Rapid City and Mount Rushmore, there's no need to be in such a hurry. The nearby Black Hills, covered in jagged rock and thick forest, provide for boundless hiking and climbing. In fact, the area brings climbers from far and wide who are eager to ascend the granite spires and steep rock faces of this mountain range. You won't have to travel far from your campsite to enjoy thrilling hikes, water sports and picture-worthy views, since the best camping around can be found right in Black Hills National Forest. Hunker down in the Ponderosa pines, or pitch your tent on the shores of a lake or reservoir. Trails meander through every nook of this sprawling national forest, so whether you travel by foot, bike or horse, you'll find dark caves, fresh springs, open prairies, and plenty of scenic overlooks on your trip to the Black Hills. Head just a little south to Custer State Park for cabin lodging and top-notch wildlife spotting, or add some culture to your trip with a visit to nearby Mount Rushmore or Wind Cave National Park.
