We will be driving north from Rapid City, SD, en route to the Lewis and Clark country (roads 1804 and 1806) along the Missouri River on August 3.
I'm not thrilled with staying in Medora -- reviews are not good - and would appreciate information on other spots to stay along US 85. We want to visit both sections of Teddy 's park, plus I'm looking for great photos.
All we need is a clean lodging with good shower and a comfortable bed. Cabins are fine, ditto Mom and Pops. Short jogs off US 85 are fine, as well.
Any suggestions? How about "don't miss" places to eat along that route?
Also, any estimates on how long the drive will take from Rapid City to Belfield?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
