It was great seeing this memorial because there are details on the sculpture you don't see unless you're there. However, you don't need to spend a lot of time here. Be sure to drive around to the west side and see the side view of...More

Can easily do in 1-2 hrs, so include this on your way to Custer State Park for a complete afternoon activity. Be sure and walk the Presidential trail to get up close(r) and personal with the Big 4.

Parking is $10 and is run by a vendor so park passes will not work. The entrance is super busy. The presidential trail will make your $10 fee feel more worth it because it will take some time and is not nearly as busy, although...More
