Where I stayed
North Sioux City KOA
On the way, we passed through Lead, SD, where the Homestake Mining Company found the largest single vein of gold in North America.
Just before Mt. Rushmore, a tourist village sprang up.
But we thoroughly enjoyed our visit at Mt. Rushmore and then we fired up the RV and headed across South Dakota to our destination for the night, the North Sioux City KOA Kampground.
On the way, Maggie pointed out that we were going right by the famous Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. It's listed in the book 1000 Places To See Before You Die. So of course, we had to stop.
The local corn farmers have been decorating this with corn cobs and corn husks after the harvest each year since 1892.
