Dawn. you guys have a safe trip. And yep we can do Martini's on Saturday. Look forward to it. See you there. Robin
Only one day left for some of you guys!! Keep in mind-check in is by 5, or call and do late check in. The resort is supposed to have your name and sites so just say you are with the SD Egg Rally
, and give your name...you should be all set.
They told me that there will be $1.16 tax per night-I apologize, this is new, and I will cover it for anyone that has heartburn about it...I would understand if you do. Don't give it to the resort...we can straighten out this weekend. They tried to go up to $22.50 plus tax...a change in management since the rally
was scheduled...and I have talked repeatly with them so they will honor the $21-but tax is not negotiable...to them.
Looks like they will be busy this weekend, the roundup is bringing people out. If you want to book seats on their bus, it is $22 per person, cc reserved. Their phone no. is 605-399-2582.
For me, and 4 people, $88 is too much for a half hour drive. BUT, remember, there is a $15 charge for a week's pass into Custer State park. Maybe we can ride/drive together? I have a suburban which seats 6...anyone is welcome to ride.
Mt. Rushmore has no entrance fee, but has a $10 parking fee-
Crazy horse does have an entrance fee, it is privately ran-don't know what it is.
Bear country, if it is still open is $55
Reptile Garden is across the street from the turn off of Mt rushmore road...fees somewhat reasonable.
Does everyone have directions? it is apprx. 3-4 mi off of Mt. Rushmore rd. It is NOT the campground right off of Mt. rushmore rd across from Reptile gardens. However, the turn for it is there. I think that resort is happy holidays CG-if you turn like you are going into it, but parallel it to the end of the little road, make a left, then you will make a left just passed this little restaurant and supposedly a B &B that is forsale...(very close to Mt. Rushmore rd-(which is hwy 16 I think) There is a sign for Hart ranch at that turn.
You will go down a little country rd, you will pass condos, hart ranch golf course, and then will see Hart Ranch Camping resort on the right. (Turn) follow that road, it will turn to the left, and then stay to the left into the resort.
Please PLEASE call the resort if you are going to come in after 5pm- They will have packets for you. If you come in Thursday, you will probably get there before me- But CALL ME if you have any questions about anything. If you need my phone number, PM me or leave a message here on the thread. I will check prior to going to bed tonight.
