Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
Escape the urban bustle at Black Hills National Forest and Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Venture out of the city with trips to Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Custer State Park, & more). Next up on the itinerary: hike along Presidential Trail, take some stellar pictures from Breezy Point Picnic Area, take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, and admire all the interesting features of Big Thunder Gold Mine.
