Grand daughter wants to see the "Presidents on the Mountains" as she calls Mt Rushmore. Due to various things, this trip will be the first weekend of October. The wife and I will head out early and pick the other 4 up at Rapid City. We will spend 4 days in the Black Hills and then all of us will head home to Kentucky with a stop in St Louis. I am finding some of the campgrounds close October 1. Custer State park, Spearfish City, and Custer Gulch will be open. Any recommendation for this time of the year? The girls need W/E, but we don't necessarily need FHU. Looking for base camp to explore from Hot Springs to Devils Tower. Would the fall colors be starting?

yes, autumn colors will be showing well at the last of sept, first of oct.
if you can get into custer gulch, grab it, or any rv park in the custer to hill city area.
be advised that the area can see some snow the first of oct.. usually just a brief cold spell that doesn't last more than a couple days.

If you can, come a few days earlier to catch the Buffalo Roundup in Custer State Park , as well as the arts fesival and auction in Custer City. Dont let fall weather dismay you, historically its T shirt days , jacket nights. But crazy stuff happens. Be prepared.

We really liked Custers Gulch. Great people and very nice clean park. Be aware that a snow is a good possibility that time of year. A big blizzard hit there in October a few years ago.

In Hill City are wo we've used Crooked Creek and Rafter J Bar Ranch. Rafter is about $70 and Crooked Creek is about average, in the fifties if I remember correctly.

It September on year it was 19 degrees and the motor in the heater choose to seize up that night.
