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!

Fishing license requirements vary from park to park. State fishing laws apply, and some parks have their own regulations, so it's best to contact the park you plan to visit before your trip.

It's a little bit longer, but you can also take US-20 E to get from Custer to Yellowstone.
