Top Answers To Black Hills National Forest Travel Questions
Thanks for your question. Two National Forest horse camps offer convenient starting points for rides into the Norbeck Wildlife Preserve and Black Elk Wilderness of South Dakota's Black Hills National Forest. Willow Creek horse camp southeast of Hill City is a charge camp with reservations required in the summer, free in winter. Iron Creek horse camp east of Custer is a small noncharge facility near the Wilderness boundary. Other agencies have horse camps, and some private resorts offer horse rentals and guided horse trips. As for the legend, I'm sure there are many in this area, especially relating to Native American lore. You can read up on a few of the stories at: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/SD-Mainpage.html
Answer this1 AnswerDogs are allowed in Black Hills National Forest as long as they are on a leash or are under strict voice control. With all the wildlife in the forest, including deer, elk, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats, nobody wants Fido running too wild!

Answer this1 AnswerMy wife and I have been to the Black Hills about 3 times. We just loved Deadwood. We stayed in the Super 8 Motel and made day trips to Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and a MUST see is Bear Country USA on route 16 not far from Mt Rushmore. There is also a lot to do in Deadwood and the hotel was reasonable with indoor pool and slot machines which are fun to play and you don't lose that much. We were lucky and each time won.
