Mount Rushmore Camping Locations

Mount Rushmore Camping Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Mount Rushmore is famous for the mountain carved with the faces of four of America’s greatest Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. However, the setting itself is a beautiful natural site, so much so that the Mount Rushmore project was sold to President Calvin Coolidge via fishing trips in the area. It is also rich with Indian history as the former home of the Lakota Sioux. This makes it a natural for camping, and although Mount Rushmore National Memorial Park itself has no campsite, there are other private campsites in the area.
