Visitor Information

Here are some of the details you may need as you make your travel plans.

Airport: Rapid City Regional (RAP) is about an hour away from Deadwood. Other airports to check out with occasional deals depending on where you’re going to/from are Gilette, Wyoming and Chadron, Nebraska – both about two hours drive from Deadwood. 

Transportation: Airport is about an hour away from Deadwood, renting a car is probably the best option as there is lots to see in a short distance of Deadwood and driving around the Black Hills is truly wonderful! Last year on the first day of WWHF Lyft announced that it would begin offering services in the Black Hills. We can’t confirm or deny how reliable Lyft will be in October, 2018, but it might be an option.
