    So reservations have been made, but it seems like I may have not thought our plans all the way through. We are planning on traveling from one campsite in the Badlands to another in the Black Hills. That same day I was planning on going to Mount Rushmore. Problem is we can't park the camper at the campsite until 1pm.
    Can I bring my camper to Mount Rushmore? Is there somewhere I can park the camper while we drive there. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Rushmore is paid per vehicle. And you can take your camper there. It is a annual permit, so you can go back. If you're staying at a campground around there, Rushmore for breakfast is a good stop.

    Yes we were there last month, without our trailer but lots of others there. I swear every 4th vehicle you come across in the Black Hills is pulling a camper of some kind.
