At 71,000 acres Custer State Park is the second largest State Park in the USA. With easy access to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Keystone, this is the area you’d want to stay in to get back to nature. It boasts fabulous scenic drives, a wide variety of outdoor recreation, interesting history and picturesque mountain resorts.
The Bison is the official logo of Custer State Park and it’s no wonder as it’s main claim to fame is that of a world class wildlife refuge. Nearly 1,600 buffalo, one of the largest herds anywhere in the world, roam free in these foothills. The scenic Wildlife Loop Road winds through the prime buffalo range in the south-eastern part of Park.
In Custer State Park you can enjoy eleven scenic hiking trails for all abilities, balloon rides over Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills, fishing, abundance of wildlife, chuck wagon rides and cooks outs, mountain biking and rock climbing. We know you’d love the Iron Mountain Road which is part of the Peter Norbeck National Scenic Byway, this leads from the park to Mount Rushmore through pigtail turns and into three granite tunnels that frame Mount Rushmore perfectly in the distance. Boy, what a Kodak moment!
