Chicago Mt Rushmore

road trip to Mount Rushmore from Chicago

We are taking a road trip to Mount Rushmore in late June/early July. Our preference is to spend just 1 night out, what would be a good 1/2 point? Or is it best to spend 2 nights out?

My family toured Mt. Rushmore in probably three hours, but I guess it depends on how much you like to hike.  We also spent some time at the nearby Crazy Horse monument, which is definitely worth visiting (and huge in comparison to Mount Rushmore.  All of Mt. Rushmore can fit in the face of Crazy Horse).   Also, our favorite stop in that area was Custer State Park.  Lots of bison herds and wild burros (donkeys) roaming the park.  Beware of the donkeys--they will stick their heads in your car windows and try to lick you/steal your food.   When we went, our halfway point was Sioux Falls, SD.

It is about a 13 hour drive from Chicago to Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Bancroft is about 6 hours from Chicago so not quite half way and Sioux Falls is 8.5 hours, so more than half way.   You could stay in Bancroft on the way out ad Sioux Falls on the way back.
