OK, a tad off an RV topic, but as a full-timer with SD domicile I need to fly up to renew my driver license. Believe it or not I have not spent any time in SD in my years of full-timing other than one day to initially get my license.

I am thinking of flying up (into Rapid City) for 3-4 nights and assume I will see Mount Rushmore and maybe the Black Hills. I was thinking of renting a cabin somewhere and enjoy some hiking or just relaxing with views of the great outdoors.

Curious if any locals have suggestions for the best area to look for a cabin that would be conveniently located to things to do but also somewhat secluded but not overly "rustic".

Thanks in advance.

PS - should have mentioned timing - thinking of late Aug, early Sept - not snow season!

If you can swing an extra day or two, there is lovely hiking in Badlands National Park, too, about an hour from the Black Hills.

To find a place I'd suggest Googling "Black Hills Cabins for Rent, (town)". There are many rentals scattered throughout the Hills, and it will narrow the search and save you time if you include the town.
If you want to be up north try Terry Peak, Deadwood, Lead or Spearfish. If you'd like to be in the southern Hills try Hot Springs, Custer, Mt. Rushmore, Keystone or Pringle.

I hope you enjoy your stay enough to visit again and often!

be sure you have all the necessary paper work for renewing. If female and divorced neeed all divoce papers,proof of
SD address, SS card, must be orignal or a 1099 will work, bank statement or credit card billing with sd address, birth cert. I think that is about it. be prepared to spend a lot of time in line.

Might try something at Custer State Park. You will need a receipt to establish your "residency" - I used my cg receipt - and yes - the lines are long in DMV. Not bringing the "house"? Then you could stay a while longer - there is a lot to see and see in the area.

We have stayed in cabins at two locations in Custer:

The Roost Resort - 1950's type cabins, very cute, it's a small place and quiet. Park outside your door.

Calamity Peak - cabins perched on the side of a hill, some with few steps and some with many steps up to the cabin. Near Hwy. 16 but the noise is not bad especially at night. This place also has a small motel so be sure you inquire about the free standing cabins.

Custer is a good area for exploring the Hills especially Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave, and it's not far from Hot Springs and Hill City. It's about an hour drive up to Rapid City, and two hours to Devil's Tower or Badlands National Park.

Rafter J is the nicest campground in all of the Hills. It is 9 miles west of Rushmore, 4 miles south of Hill City.

They have "KOA style" cabins there.

There is the old steam train, Hill City to Keystone, don't know when it's stops running. The whole area really clears out after Labor Day.

The campgroudn is close to Custer State Park, Needles Hwy and Iron Mtn Rd.


Yep, actually drove to all of these places---in the last eight years. Missed Rhode Island and New Jersey.

The Mt. Rushmore/Hill City KOA is on the same road as Mt. Rushmore. They have cabins, rental cars, a restaurant on site, and shuttles to Mt. Rushmore.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

Custer State Park. We stayed at Sylvan Lake. A bit out of the way, but worth it. If you want to be better located, I'd agree with Blue Bell.
