We started day 5 by taking a wildlife ride around the lake. It was worth it as we saw lots of deer, antelope and turkeys. One of the deer spotted by Chris was a very large buck. We left the campground around 10AM and headed towards Chadron Nebraska. Only saw a couple of deer before arriving at Chadron. Gassed up at a cost of $4.059/GAL. A couple miles out of town we saw this old man on a bicycle heading north. He had the bike loaded with his packs. We saw a couple antelope as we entered South Dakota. Another new state for everyone but me.
We arrived at Angostura Recreation Area around 2 in the afternoon. Check in was not until 4PM so we went into Hot Springs and picked up some supplies. We had a site reserved right on the water but had to wait a couple of hours for the unit to become available. This was going to be home for the next 3 days. The campgrounds closer to Mt. Rushmore were all booked but the drive north out of Hot Springs was worth the time.
