Highways & Paved Roads
Most visits to Wind Cave National Park take you on US Highway 385 or South Dakota Highway 87, the two main paved roads in the park. Both offer scenic views as well as many pullouts with wayside exhibits and parking for enjoying the scenery or watching wildlife.
The visitor center, where all cave tours begin, is located 1/2 mile off of US Highway 385. Once in the park, follow the signs to the visitor center. Do not use your GPS to find the visitor center - you may get lost. Cell service in the park is very limited and GPS directions tend to be unreliable in the Black Hills.
