Black Hills National Forest

Sunrise in the Black Hills National Forest

Black Hills National Forest is known for its interesting rock formations.

“The Island in the Plains”

Black Hills National Forest spans 1.2 million acres in northeastern Wyoming and western South Dakota. Pine forested mountains, rugged rock formations, canyons, open grassland meadows, and tumbling streams make up the National Forest, with plenty of opportunities for recreation. We have been partners with the Black Hills National Forest since 1988.
