Sylvan Lake Campground Custer State Park, SD

Can anyone who has camped here tell me how far of walk/hike it is to campsite #16 and #17?

We stayed there in 2016. I don’t recall the site we were in, but it’s an easy walk to the trailhead for the cathedral spires and the lake.

It’s a nice campground and located close to the lodge and entrance, so driving to Mt. Rushmore is quick and easy.

Where are you walking from? The lake is across the main road from the campground but it is a short walk (just a couple of minutes).

We were wondering how far of a hike in it was to those two sites. We finally figured out that it is a quarter mile hike so not too bad.
