“A Great Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Absolutely breathtaking views. Would have liked another week of vacation just to explore and see more of it. More to this park than just the wildlife loop.

“Everything was amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We've been to Custer State Park with our children 20 years ago, and this time, we brought our 6 year-old grandson. It was fun to see the changes at Mt. Rushmore and to relive memories made previously throughout the park. The buffalo calves were abundant and cute to watch.

“Wildlife, hiking, great rides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Great place to visit, see wildlife, do some hiking, have been coming here for the last 10-15 years and find a great place to get away,, get out and relax in the great outdoors. Needles Highway and the Wildlife loop are two great attractions among many!
