The Parks in the Black Hills allow everyone to enjoy the natural beauty of the region. The largest park is Custer State Park, home to buffalo, antelope, deer, prairie dogs and many other species of wildlife.

Around Harney Peak, the Norbeck Wildlife Preserve and the Black Elk Wilderness offer the hiker miles of trails and the opportunity for dispersed camping. The Upper Pine Creek Quiet area offers the maximum in solitude and majesty among its granite spires.

Of course Mt. Rushmore National Monument draws many tourists during the course of a year to marvel at this feat of modern engineering.

Wind Cave National Park to the south features acres of rolling grassland and tours of Wind Cave. Other caves in the Black Hills include Jewel Cave National Monument and many smaller private caves such as Rushmore Cave and Sitting Bull Cave near Rapid City.

Of course the Badlands and Devil's Tower are also spectacular. Both offer unique landscapes and exploration possibillities found nowhere else in the world.
