Getting to Wind Cave National Park
The main park road of Wind Cave National Park is US-385. The town of Hot Springs is about six miles south of the park boundary. Jewel Cave National Monument and the city of Custer are to the north. SD-87 also enters the park and joins the main park road. Custer State Park is on the way.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Wind Cave National Park Visitor Center. You can click on the map marker to get directions from wherever you are. Following this is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file (sometimes very large files) or a simple image file. The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you are planning to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Wind Cave Trail Map.
