Is this too much time in Deadwood?

by HaneG

I'm planning on travelling to SD this summer w/my 15 y.o. son. I had figured on staying at Deadwood Dick's for about 2 or 3 nights. At least one day would be devoted to driving over Devil's Tower and I thought we'd try riding on Mickelson's Trail, visit Adams Museum and President's Park as well as walking around the town.

After that thought we'd hit Keystone for a couple nights to hit the sites closer to that area and then spend a night or two in Custer State Park. The Lodge in that park looks awesome.

Is this a good plan or am I all over the place? I also wanted to take my son to Badlands for some hiking and a stop at Wall just to say we did.

My family visited SD during the summer of 2003 when our boys were 13, 11, and 9. We had a great time and based ourselves in Rapid City (Hampton Inn, one of the newest hotels). We did visit Deadwood one day and walked through the casinos, the Adams Museum, and the cemetary. I think one day in Deadwood would be plenty--it's just a main street only a couple of blocks long.

We came into SD via Sioux Falls. The first rest stop on the interstate had tons of brochures and information on attractions. We are not especially outdoors types, but did visit Custer State Park and saw a huge herd of buffalo. It would probably be fun to stay in the park and do some of the activities there.

We loved our vacation and visited the following places: near Rapid City, Ellsworth Air Force Base; in Rapid City there was a Lakota (I think) Indian trading post that had many interesting handmade cultural items to look at; Bear Country USA (fun 1-2 hrs.); Mammoth dig in Hot Springs (they actually excavate in August); Crazy Horse (Lakota dancing and crafts); Mount Rushmore; Jewel Cave; and a coal mining museum. Everything was very authentic, and educational too, but don't tell your son. Any questions, email me.

Deadwood is going to be nearer to alot of hiking and biking. The area isn't all that large, although getting around through the hills on all the windy roads can take some time. As someone else said, I wouldn't say there's alot to see in the towns that would warrant more than a day. There are alot of outdoors activites in each area, however. From Deadwood you could visit all those things you have mentioned in your first paragraph.

From Keystone you can hit Rushmore, Hill City, and the Lake Pactola/Lake Sheridan areas.

From the custer area you can visit Custer state park, many caves, and alot of hiking. I would suggest doing the Harney Peak hike. Depending on which trailhead you take it'll be more or less difficult. Your son should be old enough that it shouldn't be a challenge. It will probably eat up a good half to full day depending on which trail you take.

If you want a day to relax, I'd suggest heading down to Hot Springs. Evan's Plunge is a natural hot spring-fed indoor swimming area. And as someone else said there's the mammoth site down there also.

Another place in the area not far off from Deadwood is Bear Butte. I haven't been there personally, but I hear it was interesting. Also depending on the time of year, you can head up to Spearfish Canyon. If it isn't too dry, there's quite a few falls in the area, or in september the changing of seasons create some spectacular colors.

I'm personally not a big fan of the touristy places like Keystone, so you'll see me suggest more hiking/state park activites. Just remember when driving through the hills, it always takes longer than you think to drive from point a to point b. I've lived there for 4 years and still have problems with that.

Travel Tips for Deadwood

Nature Lives


In 2002 Deadwood was evacuated because of a forest fire that burned many thousands of acres. They stopped the fire before it got to the town but it was touch and go. Now the trees are coming back. In five years it will be almost impossible to find where the fire was.
In the front of the picture is a go kart track and mini golf course.

See Deadwood, even if you...

by DoctorDon

See Deadwood, even if you don't stay there. From that location, it's a day trip to Devil's Tower, Wy.,
Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Keystone, the Badlands, etc. This is the best of the bunch as far as accomodations, and it has its own local history as well.

Midnight Star

by KimberlyAnn

The Midnight Star has become one of the highlight locations in Deadwood. Located inside a restored, three story historic building it is owned by American movie star, Kevin Costner. When Costner first came to Deadwood the building was only two stories, but records showed that the building was a three story structure. When Costner saw some old photos he decided to renovate the entire building, including adding back the third floor. You will find the interior decorated with etched glass windows, hand-rubbed wood, and polished brass. Along the walls you will find many original costumes, movie photographs, and other objects from Kevin Costner's various movies. These displays occasionally change, so that what you see one time may be different on your next visit. When we were there some of the items that we saw were the baseball jacket Costner wore in the movie Bull Durham, the golf bag from Tin Cup, early American costumes worn during Dances With Wolves, as well as many other items and memorabilia. Within the Midnight Star you will find a gambling Casino with card games, slot machines, and other types of gambling machines. There is also bar and grill, a fine dining restaurant, and a small shop where you can find clothing and souvenirs to remind you of your visit to the Midnight Star.

Step Back Into History in Deadwood, South Dakota

by KimberlyAnn

Deadwood is a small town that is filled with historical buildings and reminders from the town's early gold-rush boom years. Established in 1876 during the Black Hills gold rush, the town's early days were violent and lawless, filled with prostitutes, gunfighters, and gamblers along with those trying to find the big claim that would make them wealthy. Famous American people from the early west such as Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, Wyatt Earp, and Dock Hilliday spent time in Deadwood. In 1964 Deadwood became the only city in the United States to be named a National Historic Landmark. In the last weekend in July, the town celebrates its history during the Days of 1876 with a 3-mile long parade of historic wagons and buggies, street dances and a PRCA rodeo. At one time it was this rich history that brought visitors to this town. Today, however, many people come for its gambling. In 1947 gambling had been officially closed in Deadwood, but in1989 legalized limited-stakes gambling returned to Deadwood for the purpose of bringing more tourism to the town, as well as creating funds to preserve its historic buildings.

"History "

We came to Deadwood for its history, and filled three days visiting museums and touring historic sites on foot and by bus. Even if you come for the gambling, if you are interested in history at all, try to plan some time to explore the interesting history of Deadwood.


Many of the historic building along main street have been preserved on the outside, but contain casinos inside. Gambling has become so popular in Deadwood that many of the hotels in the area now offer their own casino, so you will find a large number of establishments to choose from

The Old West Meets the New Economy

by mrclay2000

"Gunslinger's Last Hand at #10 Saloon"

This small bar has been modernized. The first impression is one of a watering hole from the Old West, with barrel-vaulted chairs, round tables, turn-of-the-century memorabilia, busts of wildlife on every rafter, and sawdust on the floor. Along the left hand runs the bar counter with every thing you could possibly want to slake your thirst, or in old timer parlance "to cut the dust from your throat."

There are televisions here for those not wanting to reminisce or have a drink, and a restaurant upstairs (reasonable prices). In the next room is a host of slot machines, and even several in the main parlor.

This place is important as the spot where legendary gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok was shot in 1876. His mementos and those of Calamity Jane roughly line the wall where he was sitting when Jack McCall pulled the trigger that ended his life. The chair said to be occupied by Wild Bill rests in a small niche above the main door.
