Looking for the perfect location for your next vacation in the Black Hills? Well, you've found it! The Powder House Lodge, located in the Central Black Hills, is only 4 miles away from Mt. Rushmore and just a short drive away from many other Black Hills attractions.
Only 30 minutes away is Crazy Horse Monument, the world's largest mountain sculpture in progress. Started in 1948, this memorial's mission is to honor the culture, tradition, and living heritage of the American Indian.
Also only 30 minutes away is Custer State Park, featuring over 71,000 acres of amazing terrain and an abundance of wildlife. Here you can experience the Wild Life Loop and the Cathedral Spires, including the Needles Eye. Also, visit the Black Hills Playhouse, beautiful Sylvan Lake, and Harney Peak, the highest point between the Rocky and Pyrenees Mountains
An hour and fifteen minutes to the Northwest is Deadwood, a town that has seen its rebirth through the legalization of gambling. Games include Live Poker, Slots, and Black Jack. However, if gambling is not your thing, rest assured there are other things to see and do, including Mt. Moriah, the resting place of Western legends such as Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, and Seth Bullock. Other points of interest include the Tatanka Exhibit and the Adams Museum, to name a few.
An hour and fifteen minutes to the north-east is the Badlands, consisting of 244,000 acres of eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with mixed grass prairie. With the scenic loop located just off I-90, the Badlands are a must-see. While in the area, also be sure and visit Famous Wall Drug, The Minuteman Missile Museum, or the Wounded Knee Museum.
