The Black Hills are in western South Dakota and northeastern Wyoming, covering an area 125 miles long and 65 miles wide. Enjoy yourself while viewing the many rugged rock formations, canyons and gulches, open grassland parks, tumbling streams, and deep blue lakes.
Millions of visitors come to the Black Hills each year to experience the rich and diverse heritage.
The Forest is working to manage populations of mountain pine beetle (MPB) and to help protect communities, watersheds, and natural resources from wildfire by treating hazardous fuels. See the Black Hills National Forest Mountain Pine Beetle Response Project Decision.
