We will fly a flight plan, this year, to Devils Tower (Centennial Year of the Park.) The flight will be about 45 minute round trip. Black Hills Central Reservation has setup blocks of 5 rooms for us at the Holiday Inn at Spearfish (about 5 minutes) and another block of 15 rooms at the Mineral Palace Hotel in Deadwood (25 minutes.) Call Black Hills Central Reservations at 800-529-0105 for Hotel rooms above. There is a service fee and be sure to get their cancellation policy. My wife and I found a couple of hotels in Deadwood, out of the downtown area. One is the Cedar Wood Inn, with 18 rooms and the other is further out but close to “Gulches of Fun” A good family entertainment attraction. These two hotel could or would not provide a block of rooms but were a good rate in the area and had not groups booked in on the weekend we are going to be their. Quoted rates are below. Please book as early as possible to insure rooms are available.
