Glamping in South Dakota's Black Hills


The site which is home to today's Custer's Gulch RV Park is the same place that General Custer camped on his 1874 Black Hills Expedition. The purpose for General Custer's visit was to search for a location for an Army fort as well as to understand what natural resources (i.e. gold) were available in the area. The team of men led by General Custer did find small amounts of gold. The Black Hills Gold Rush began later that year and reached its peak just over two years later.

Do you have a favorite place to stay in the Black Hills National Forest?

After departing southeast South Dakota, we were finally headed to the Black Hills National Forest! It was there where we would spend the better part of our 2 weeks in the state. Our longest stay in the Black Hills was at Custer's Gulch RV Park & Campground. Luckily, the RV park also ended up being our favorite in South Dakota.

Named after General Custer (who also camped there), Custer's Gulch is just minutes away from both downtown Custer and Custer State Park. Both Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse are easy drives, as are plenty of the area's other tourist attractions. If we ever have the chance to return to this area, we would happily return to Custer's Gulch.

Where is your favorite place to stay in the Black Hills?

Notable Quote

I got into an argument with a girlfriend inside of a tent. That's a bad place for an argument, because then I tried to walk out and slammed the flap. How are you supposed to express your anger in this situation? Zipper it up really quick? - Mitch Hedberg
