    This campground lies beneath a canopy of oak and Ponderosa pine on the banks of Grizzly Creek. The site has retained much of its original Civilian Conservation Corps character, and offers visitors recreation and relaxation in Black Hills National Forest. Located along the Iron Mountain Road, it is between Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Custer State Park. A pavilion built by the Civilian Conservation Corps still stands and is available for use by campers. (Photo by Leslie Barton/USDA FS)
