Your Monumental Playground

If you come to the Black Hills of South Dakota, we’re pretty sure you’re not allowed to leave without saying “Hello & Goodbye!” to those famous faces on Mount Rushmore. We’re also confident your visit won’t be complete without staying at least four or five nights in the “key” to your “monumental playground”—Keystone! Here, you will find a great variety of lodging choices—everything from tent and RV camping, hotels and motels, unique bed and breakfasts, quaint lodges, vacation homes and more. 

Keystone is the home of Mount Rushmore and a visitor magnet in its own right. Located two miles from the monument, it features dozens of shopping boutiques, restaurants and treats, and family fun attractions.

Most visitors come to know "New Keystone," which is a mile-long retail district stretched along US Hwy. 16A, the main route to Mount Rushmore. But "Old Keystone," or "Old Town," is the original gold mining settlement along east-flowing Battle Creek.
