Started the day with breakfast then moved to the tour with Preacher Bill. He was a wonderful guide through the Black Hills. His driving skills were appreciated as we navigated three tunnels. Ended the day with the BBQ and music. All around great time.

We went here for breakfast. All you can eat pancakes got 99 cents. Very good pancakes. If you other things with your breakfast it costs more but worth the price. We walked down the boardwalk of the fort. Was a gun place to stop.

We love the movie Dances With Wolves so we loved watching the video BIO of it.....none of the studios would back it, yet Kevin Costner was relentless, and found a way. Interviews with cast members and more behind the scenes stuff. Poking around Ft Hayes...More

It is my understanding that the entire facility is closed for the season until May. It might be worth a phone call to the Rapid City Visitor's Center to confirm that! Enjoy!
