Day 4 – Cottonwood Campground to Bluebell Campground, Custer National Forest, South Dakota (634 km)

By August 4, 2017January 4th, 2021One Comment

Day four, beautiful morning in Cottonwood Campground. Our campsite was perfectly situated to catch the awesome sunrise across Lake Yankton. Our site (B9) was a good premium site overlooking the lake and we had breakfast and moved on to Custer State Forest on the other side of South Dakota.

As we moved through SD, the topography changed from farmland to badland and the great plain came in to view. The badlands are particularly striking and they are a definite must-see in this area.
