The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is open 365 days a year.  All visitor services: camping, lodging, and restaurants are available year round. Reservations are strongly recommended during the busy summer season.

Some facilities are closed during the winter depending on the severity of the weather.  For more information as you get closer to the trip you can call the General Visitor Information Line at (928) 638-7888

You must absolutely follow highway 87 (Needles Highway) to Mt. Rushmore.  Out of Hot Springs, drive about 11.5 miles North on 385 , until you get to 87 North.  It will be easy to follow from here to Rushmore.

This road is one of my favorites that I have driven in South Dakota.  It winds through the mountains on narrow roads, but driving slowly and stopping often, you will be able to stop at multiple lookouts and see the monument from afar.  There are also tunnels through sheer rock faces, and all together a fantastic drive!

Yes, it can hold two tents, as long as they're both not huge! There are four campgrounds in Shenandoah National Park: Mathews Arm (mile 22.1), Big Meadows (mile 51.2), Lewis Mountain (mile 57.5) and Loft Mountain (mile 79.5)

My favorite times to visit Yellowstone is in May/June and September.  There aren't nearly as many people as there are in July and August.  The weather can be unpredictable during the spring and fall, and the wildlife is amazing.  In the spring, there are animal babies, and in the fall is the elk rut.  Check out http://www.nps.gov/yell.
