Armour SD Pictures

Here's some pictures we took of the small town of Armour on our way to Custer SD and the Black Hills. Armour has a population of 782. This is the small town where our friend's mother moved to. She is 87 yrs old and moved into some Senior Housing called the Town Fair Apartments.

Armour slogan Pride Runs Deep

Armour's town slogan is "Pride Runs Deep," but here is another slogan on the side of one of the downtown buildings that says, "One Mile Long, 100 Yrs Strong".

Main Strret downtown view

Armour also has a small hospital there and clinic. The nurses are very nice and you can be sure you get lots of personal attention because the hospital only has 6 rooms.

The Armour Campground

Also near the hospital is the Armour campground. We drove through the campground it to see what it looks like. Once we turned, we drove past it the first time because there wasn't a sign announcing to turn. (The road we were on deadended at a cemetery and we had to turn around.) The entrance to the campground was not hard to find though, it was the only other road there was, and it is marked by 2 stone pillars.

No one was camping there, and we didn't see anywhere to stop and pay a fee. We saw a few camping spots, restrooms, and there is a Recreational Trail around Lake Alcazar. We left using the South Entrance which is also marked by 2 stone pillars. So basically the campground is located behind Lions Park.
