Description

A slightly steep gravel road just outside of Deadwood SD. One pull through and a couple of back in spots with amazing views. There is a primitive toilet house sitting at a trailhead nearby, the pull offs are just past there. We made the pull through spot with a 23’ travel trailer just barely. The other spots are a bit smaller, possibly would have fit in but didn’t try.

Nice place to stay the night, felt safe and only saw one other camper. Toilet was open but hasn’t been maintained in a while.

What a view. Gravel road with several pulloffs.

Report Check-In

Lots of spots up the road. Most were taken by 6pm but found a pull off at end of the road that’s easily passable.

Stayed here for a week or so during Sturgis rally. It’s a great area and pretty quiet.

However, lots of folks came looking for camp spots and pulled up right next to me.

Fortunately most were friendly and respected personal space.

The good spots fill up quick and a few people were camped out at the trailhead to Roosevelt Tower.

Be Leary of Google maps taking you down Tetro Rock Road if coming from Lead.

That road is marked private and 4x4 is definitely needed.

great view off Mt.Rushmore, nice RTT spot, flat gravel ground. only a few spots up here so get there early. nice spread, didnt hear neighboring campers or see anything but stars. bugs werent bad, temp got down to 60s and warmed right up in the AM. would recommend to anyone who doesnt want to spend a bunch on casino/hotel and loudness.

Beautiful spot, very little traffic on the gravel road nearby (middle of the week), free, no campfires or electricity, Don’t forget your trash! :D
