Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial has been added to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Sun): get a new perspective on nature at The Museum @ Black Hills Institute, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, then contemplate the waterfront views at Sylvan Lake, and finally explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: trek along Little Devil's Tower Trail and then explore the activities along Horse Thief Lake.
