Custer State Park in the Black Hills, SD
Experience the culture and history walking the banks of French Creek, where, in 1874, Custer's expedition first discovered gold. See the log cabin that was home to Badger Clark, and enjoy a moving performance at Black Hills Playhouse.
You never know what kind of wildlife you might see, since the park is home to a multitude of animals, not just the buffalo. Mountain goats, pronghorn antelopes, big horn sheep, deer, elk, wild turkeys, and friendly burros have been known to graze through the park!
Not only are there several resorts located within the park, but campgrounds as well, for adventure-seekers loving to sleep out under the stars.
Educate yourself and your family with nature walks and guided tours about gold-planning excursions. You can also enjoy the demonstrations of candle-making, wood-working, and evening campfire programs where you can learn how to cook over an open fire, and so much more!
