Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
Get in touch with nature at Black Hills National Forest and Sylvan Lake. Change things up with these side-trips from Keystone: Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Badlands Wall) and Custer (Custer State Park & Needles Eye Tunnel). There's still lots to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

Baton Rouge to Keystone is an approximately 6-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Baton Rouge to Keystone. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Baton Rouge in May: high temperatures in Keystone hover around 59°F and lows are around 37°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
