What kind of outdoor adventures in South Dakota can I get into?  

South Dakota is a paradise for those of us who enjoy outdoor adventure of all sorts, be it mountain climbing, kayaking, incredible hiking, legendary spelunking, and so much more. It’s pretty much the case that no matter which part of the state you’re in, you’re bound to find some kind of awe-inspiring adventure awaiting. Some of our favorite, more specific adventures include paddling the Missouri River, where you’ll be treated to incredible natural beauty all around you for as many miles as you can handle. You can go SCUBA diving in a few of South Dakota’s amazing lakes: Lake Oahe, Sheridan Lake, and Pactola Reservoir. Bet you didn’t know you can do THAT here! Truly, the possibilities are endless and you’re going to fall in love with South Dakota all over.  

Where is Rush Mountain Adventure Park in South Dakota?

Rush Mountain Adventure Park is a thrill all its own, featuring a zipline adventure, a roller coaster (and other rides), a challenge course, and so much more. It’s wonderful for the whole family or, if you feel like treating yourself, a solo trip. At the time of this writing, it’s open five days a week, being closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.  

What are some other things to do near Mount Rushmore? 

Mount Rushmore is nowhere near the only exciting thing to see in its area. You’ll have a blast around the national monument, too, as there’s enough to do that it’s worth taking extra days either before or after your visit to Rushmore to do them. Some of our favorite nearby attractions include the Crazy Horse memorial and Custer State Park, both of which are historically significant and fun to learn about. You’ll also find some natural beauty all around you, and you should consider a visit to Black Elk Peak and Horse Thief Lake.
