There a tent campsite with sevices like concessions on a lake. It's pretty close to the highest peak betwen the rockies and appalachians topping out overv 7000 feet with a stone fort on top that you can explore. Its a fairly easy climb, just a few hours each way. I think the campground is called Custer's. Its also close to mount rushmore, which is a must.

 

Do not, repeat not, drive the extra distance to devils tower unless you like rope climbing.

There are many good areas. Custer State Park is an amazing campground. http://gfp.sd.gov/st...rectory/custer/ If you have never been to Mt. Rushmore it is pretty special. Avoid the last week of July and first two weeks of August. There is a small event out in the Hills call the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Hotels, campgrounds etc are booked up a year in advance. I have never been out there four wheeling, but I know it goes on.

I used to live in the Black Hills when I was in the Air Force from 1992-1996. Camped a ton at Pactola Lake which is beautiful. I don't really have any advice on ATV rentals though.

 

Anyways, that's not very helpful. What I came in here to say is that the Sturgis motorcycle rally is usually in early August so plan accordingly as every town in and around the western edge of SD will be busy and loaded with people.

 

Have fun and good luck.
