Nice wooded camping spots. The ponderosa pines are beautiful . It was a busy campground when we were here, definitely not a campground for those that like quiet. Convenient location for exploring Mount Rushmore. Everything was very well maintained.
We fell in love with Custer State Park on a trip to see Mount Rushmore. . We opted for a camping cabin upon arrival and were pleased with the cleanliness of the cabin and facilities. The view from our cabins poach was outstanding. The wildlife was well worth the expense compared to tent camping.
We had a great week at our campsite. We hiked with the kids and saw a ton of wildlife. We plan on going back soon and just continue to Custer State Park. The jr. Ranger programs were great for our girls and we enjoyed the learning.
Watch out for bison! Lots of wildlife in the park and the campground too. This is a nice spot to use as basecamp for a few days while exploring all the attractions in the area. There are a LOT of ranger programs in and around the park all summer, worth a look. Camp sites are decent size and privacy. Lovely views from every spot we drove by. Everything was nice and clean, showers warmer than I usually expect. There's a separate horse camp area and I think you can hire horses to explore the site (which would be really neat). There are also cabins that, from what I heard, are pretty modern.
We fell in love with Custer State Park on a trip to see Mount Rushmore. The vast expanse of the park is great as well as all of the great attractions and other natural areas so near. We opted for a camping cabin upon arrival and were pleased with the cleanliness of the cabin and facilities. The view from our cabins poach stellar overlooking a valley with some wildlife spotting :)
