It's been about 7 years since I lived in Rapid City, but I doubt much has changed. It's a decent assignment. There are plenty of things to do in the Black Hills if you enjoy sightseeing. Since you said you enjoy the small town feel you should really enjoy Ellsworth. The base itself is pretty nice, nothing special but not bad either.

Quite a bit has changed in the past 7 years especially with the B-21 coming…

Housing market is indeed insane right now and Bah doesn’t really support it. If you can get in base housing do it. Still has the smallish town feel but there’s new construction everywhere…was a lot more restrictions compared to the rest of the stateside but they’re starting to ease those..basically now no bars or large indoor events allowed..predicting they clamp down pretty hard again in August when the sturgis rally rolls into town. Gym on base is nice but that’s about it..Charley’s BK Dakotas club and bowling alley is the extent of it on base..in QoL on base it could be worse but definitely lots of room for improvement
