Description

What’s better than seeing Mt. Rushmore for the first time? Camping nearby next to a beauty of a lake among the pines that’s what! Horsethief Lake Campground is only two miles from Mt. Rushmore, so you probably want to pay it a visit if you haven’t already. Then you can get to the good stuff of fishing, hiking, rock climbing, and campfire cookouts while overlooking Horsethief Lake. A variety of RV, tent, and walk-in sites are ripe for the picking, so you can choose your level of luxury and stay awhile.
