South Dakota is a beautiful and rugged land located in the northern part of the Midwestern United States. It is the 5th least populous state in the Union, and as such, the state is filled with wild and expansive areas. If you’re looking forward to spending time in a remote destination and communing with nature, then you have to drive your motorhome rental to South Dakota. Unlike some other areas of the country, South Dakota has four distinctly defined seasons. Summers see temperatures approaching 90 degrees, while the long winter months see temperatures in the 30’s, with severe winter storms a fairly regular occurrence. This isn’t a deal breaker, by any means, just as long as you dress for the occasion!
We hope you enjoy your RV rental South Dakota!
As the state’s most popular tourist attraction, we couldn’t very well talk about South Dakota without mentioning Mount Rushmore. If you’ve never seen it, then you owe it to yourself to make the trip. This single destination makes the whole trip worthwhile. You’ll be awed by the sheer size and scale of this manmade landmark. It’s simply beyond describing.
You could spend the entire trip and never actually leave the confines of Badlands National Park. It features dramatic, rugged landscapes with pinnacles formed by the erosion of sand and clay. A huge herd of Bison roams in one of the last intact prairie landscapes in the whole of North America. If you love the outdoors, you’ll love it here!
Custer State Park is excellent for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. It features a wide variety of terrain ranging from rugged hills similar to those found in Badlands National Park, to granite peaks, forests, lakes and streams.

Given that we mentioned Mt. Rushmore, we couldn’t pass up the chance to tell you about the annual 4th of July celebration. Can you imagine a better or a more perfect place to celebrate the Fourth? Celebrate this important day in the country’s history at Mount Rushmore. It’s an absolutely superb festival and listed as one of the top fifteen events in the state for the whole year. Not to be missed!
