The Black Hills region of South Dakota is rich with outdoor beauty, attractions and activities to fill your heart and soul with the purest and most pristine nature the United States has to offer.
Head out hiking to appreciate the mountains and spot hidden nooks, swimming holes, and landmark rock formations in some of the most well protected and scenic areas anywhere.
The breathtaking scenery contributes to many top activities for any vacation adventure to the Black Hills. There’s a massive variety of fishing and hunting opportunities, as you toss your line into fast-running streams weaving and flowing through the cliff sides. Fall hunting for wild turkeys and prairie dogs makes for an unrivaled challenge.
There are plentiful golfing opportunities in the Black Hills area. Take on the challenges of the Boulder Canyon Country Club or check out the acclaimed Golf Club at Red Rock. There is a wide range of different golf courses available to you while staying in one of our Black Hills lodges, from shorter rolling courses to some of the most hazard-filled and challenging 18-hole courses.
The Black Hills is not just a place for enthusiastic golfers and hunters. There are family-friendly activities all around. Big Thunder Gold Mine is a sprawling mine museum showcasing some of the most impressive places where mining historically reinvented the Midwest.
Of course, no visit to South Dakota is complete without a stop at one of the most iconic and impressionable attractions in the country: Mount Rushmore. Walk the trails or explore some kayaking and other water activities near the monument and by nearby Spearfish Canyon.
