Custer State Park is just outside the town of Custer, SD. It is about ~6Miles outside the town. The Wildlife loop is approximately 20 Miles around the park. It took me about 3 hours to drive the full loop with stops on the way to view the wildlife. I did the drive around noon time and I mostly saw the Burros, Pronghorns, Bighorns & Bison. Actually I did not find any Bison inside the park around the afternoon, but I did find them when I continued on the Needles Highway after the wildlife loop! Burros are fun to be around, they kind of follow anybody who feeds them and I am sure the kids will get a kick out of it.
Wildlife loop is definitely a beautiful drive with varied landscape and with beautiful spots for pictures.
