Other Area Attractions

In addition to the outstanding hunting we offer, there are many other things to see or do before or after your hunt. Devil’s Tower, America’s first national monument is 9 miles south of our Wyoming camp. Deadwood is 10 miles south of our South Dakota camp and Mount Rushmore is a little over an hours drive southeast of camp. Other attractions that are close include the Badlands, Custer State Park, Wind Cave Park, the Needles, as well as numerous other sites all through the hills.

St. Onge is reported to be one of oldest communities in all of the Black Hills. It shows dates carved on beams of old buildings and root cellars that go back to the 1830s. The town was named by French fur traders who settled there to tap the supply of beaver skins from the hills. Several stone buildings still remain along the main street of the old French community, which is southeast of Belle Fourche.

Devil's Tower rises 1,267 feet above the nearby Belle Fourche River. What makes the mountain so striking is its sharp, near-vertical cliffs with regular, furrows and flattened top. Learn more. View map of the area.
