Experience the Black Hills & Badlands of South Dakota

From the four faces carved high on Mount Rushmore and the Cathedral Spires of Custer State Park to the wondrous caverns of Wind Cave, from the otherworldly Badlands in the east to Devils Tower in the west – the Black Hills are home to many truly monumental places.

But that’s only some of what you’ll find here. With over five million acres of forest and mountain lands – an oasis in a sea of prairie – in the Black Hills you’ll also find rich western history, abundant natural beauty and meaningful adventure.
