Sandy and I returned from our 8 adventure trip to Shouth Dakota.
If you read my original post, we made reservations for a place called
"Rafter J Bar Campground" located in Hill City, South Dakota.
After all the reports I read from other people regarding Rafter J, I can say that I was not dissappointed one bit.
In this photo, the office is behind me and to the right. Basically in front of the pool as you are looking at the pool from this picture.
The line of campers in the back ground is the "Line Camp". Very little shade in most of these sites. The line of trees to the far right is where "Ranch Camp" is located and where we located for 5 of the 8 days.
In this photo, you will see our site and the site on the left of our site. Behind us is the "Ranch Camp" bathroom/shower/laundry facilities. Very clean and neat and kept that way all day long.
Then of course we stopped at Mount Rushmore. We decided to wait for the lighting ceremony. If you have not been to Mount Rushmore or planning to soon, be sure to visit just before dark and stay for the lighting ceremony.
We were very delighted that we stayed at Rafter J and would HIGHLY
recommend this place to anyone that would ask us. We did visit Custer State Park, Needles Highway, Spearfish Canyon, RoughRock Falls, Cosmos Center, Bear Country and the city of Keystone.
Our trip was troublefree for our F150 and the Jayflight. Our freinds have a couple of Yamaha Rhinos that we took up in the mountains on Thursday and Friday and overlooked the city of Nemo. (Picture to follow in next post).
We had a breakdown in one of the Rhinos, but we took along some "Viewing Fluid" to help ease the pain of the break down while his wife came with the truck and trailer to bring us back with the broke down "Bad" Rhino and the "Good" Rhino as we are now calling them.
Thanks for looking!!!
