“A little out of the way of the heart of the Black Hills, but a very interesting stop. The views in Hot Springs are to do for, and this little town has a lot of history to offer. If you make your way to the Mammoth Site, stop at Evan's Plunge for a dip in this huge natural hot spring swimming pool”

“Need a good place to cool off? Evan's plunge is a unique natural spring fed water park. The bottom of the pool is lined with a bed of smooth rounded stones. ”

Restaurant
“Hand-made pizza that is the best in the "Hills". Locally owned and operated they feature a variety of items on the menu as well as a large selection of drinks, including "Russian Beer" that is exceptional. While all their food is amazing, our favorite is the "Big Tatanka" a pizza made with bison meat. Quite Yummy. They are open in the morning for breakfast and a variety of coffee choices as well.”
