Learn more about Custer State Park and start planning your South Dakota adventure.

The granite peaks and rolling plains are calling.  The clear mountain waters are inviting and the open ranges are waiting to be discovered.  Bring your family to Custer State Park and let yourself run wild. 

Encompassing 71,000 acres in the Black Hills, Custer State Park is home to abundant wildlife and adventure; camping, hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, or relaxing, there’s something here for everyone.

Feeding and disturbing park wildlife is against park regulations. While the animals within the park are used to visitors and vehicles, they are still wild animals.  Please remain in your vehicle or stay at least 100 yards from bison, elk, and other animals. 

Pets must be on a leash no longer than 10 feet and are not allowed in any park buildings or on designated swim beaches. Please clean up after your pet and do not leave it unattended.  Service animals are welcome.
