Welcome to Black Hills & Badlands!

With its natural beauty and mystic nuances, it is no wonder the Lakota Indians found the Black Hills to be such a spiritual place. The Black Hills Region covers a large area in the western part of South Dakota and has many state parks and wonders of nature. Wildlife roam freely at Custer State Park, one of the largest parks in South Dakota and home to a large bison population. Rapid City is the main center in the area, and each year the city hosts the Black Hills Pow Wow, a cultural event that showcases traditional American Indian dancing. Located southeast of Rapid City, Badlands National Park has amazing rock formations, scenic nature trails and ranger-led programs. The world-famous Mount Rushmore in Keystone honors the legacy of American Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. In the town of Deadwood, a genuine remnant of the Wild West, visitors can see Calamity Jane's grave site and the saloon where Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back while playing poker.
