WILDLIFE PARK ADMISSION Nestled over 250 acres amidst towering pines and along rolling meadows just eight miles south of Rapid City, South Dakota. From the comfort of your vehicle, you can watch as local bears frolic in a pool, climb trees and amble across the road in front of your vehicle. Your three mile drive will also include encounters with elk, reindeer, deer, cougars, bobcats, rocky mountain goats, bighorn sheep, dall sheep & buffalo. You will want to allot approximately 2 hours or more for touring the wildlife park.
THREE NIGHTS in the Hill City/Keystone area, just minutes away from Mt. Rushmore at a beautiful resort set amongst the ponderosa pines. Check-into a Premier Room in the lodge with two double beds, A/C, heat, private bathroom, telephone, WIFI, balcony or patio, and cable TV. Your resort also has almost any activity you can imagine: a water park, playgrounds, fishing, pool, game room, mini golf, paddle boat rentals, horseback riding, hayrides, evening movies, variety shows and an evening shuttle to the night lighting ceremony at Mt. Rushmore & Crazy Horse! This location is ideal for seeing all that the southern Black Hills has to offer.
HORSE DRAWN CHUCK WAGON COOKOUT Travel into the Black Hills National Forest to a picturesque chuck wagon campsite nestled off the beaten path in a remote mountain meadow, with beautiful views of Harney Peak. Enjoy a fantastic Steak dinner (cooked to order) over an Aspen wood fire, including Dutch oven prepared side dishes, desert and beverages, sit back at a cracklin’ campfire, and listen to a great cowboy music show.
GOLD PANNING LESSON & MINE TOUR This is a rare experience at a very old working gold site with an antique mining museum and modern placer mill. Your admission not only provides a historic tour of the mill, but also gold panning! Your guide will explain the science of gold panning and how to identify other rocks and minerals. Guaranteed to bring home gold! Expect to spend 2-3 hours.
GUIDED CANDLELIGHT TOUR This strenuous tour covers one mile of rugged trail in one of the longest caves in the world, the Wind Cave. Your tour takes place in a less developed, unlighted part of the cave, and you will be exploring with a candle bucket. You will experience the cave the same way the old explorers did, when they first discovered its majestic beauty in 1881. Wind Cave National Park also hosts a variety of wildlife above ground, including a very large population of American buffalo.
2 HOUR INTERPRETIVE TRAIL RIDE This is a unique trip for a mature rider who wants to learn about the natural, and cultural history of the region. You will wind through the Norbeck Wildlife Preserve, stopping at points of interest to discuss local history, management of the preserve, wildlife, and various other topics of interest.
