Just about every traveling RVer will spend some time at Rapid City, SD. There are too many attractions to view during a two week stop. Normally we stay at the Ellsworth AFB FAMCAMP. The base MWR has a small fleet of tour vans that go to nearly all attractions. They pick-up and return to the FAMCAMP. We have found that most of the drivers (mostly retired military) are very knowledgeable about the areas they take us.
The 1880s train ride takes about all day. It leaves Keystone, SD and travels to Hill City, SD where there are shops and places to have lunch while the train is readied for the return trip. It’s a beautiful ride on a clear warm day with lots of wildlife to view along the way. On our trip, there was a wild horse round-up taking place near Hill City and we had a good view of those that had already been stabled.
