Camping, Riding Mickeson and visiting tourist attractions

I'm planning camping road trip Northwest in July, I'd like to incorporate Riding the Mickelson Trail, in addition to all the other points of interest...Mt. Rushmore, Wind Cave, Badlands National Park, everything. I'm travelling SOLO so have no SAG support. I had thought I'd camp somewhere mid-point on the trail (custer?) , ride in one direction and overnight at B&B, then ride back to Campground for 1 night, then ride the other direction and overnight, then back to Campground. That would make it a 4 day ride. Then should like to spend an additional 4 days to do all the other tourist stuff. Question: Is Custer State Park a good choice for camping in order to do the Trail and also all the other tourist stuff? The Oreville State Forest looks nice, but no electricity (so no A/C in July). I have a small rig....only 16', so don't need a huge site...but do appreciate hookups.

We are riding from Custer, maybe Hill City, to Deadwood, then shuttleing back to trailhead. Camping in Custer at Big Pine Campground. On another day, possibly ride from Custer to Edgemont, spend the night, then back to Custer
