This is the place to come for canoeing and fishing on our local lakes, hiking in Custer State Park, and bike riding along the Mickelson Trail. You can explore the caves at Wind Cave National Park, go hot air ballooning, ATV riding, or watch for wildlife at the stunning Crazy Horse Memorial.

    Beware or be Cheated

    BEWARE! Sent an email asking Custer's Gulch if they had tent sites with water and electricity available for four nights. Got an email reply saying that they had sites available for the nights I needed. Called the next day, referenced the email exchange, and made the reservation. Arrived four days later and Custer's Gulch does not even have tent sites with water and electricity. Also if I wanted an electric site they were going to charge me 25% more than I had been quoted when I made the reservation for water and electric. Owners did not care at all that I was quoted a lower price. I drove off and went some where else. Only thing that they did right was refund the full amount including the deposit. Even that though, when I asked for a receipt for the credit I never was given one.
