Rapid City, South Dakota

South Dakota Mines is located near one of the most beautiful places in the country if not the world – the Black Hills National Forest, home to Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Black Elk Peak. At 7,244 feet, Black Elk Peak is the highest peak between the Colorado Rockies and the Swiss Alps. Our “Hills” offer an outdoor playground for hiking, skiing, biking and rock climbing, all less than an hour’s drive from campus. Only minutes away, you’ll find coffee houses, restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Rapid City.
