We chose this place because it had handicap facilitiiies and we could have our own log cabin with areal wood burning fireplace. We loved our own "Little House in the Woods". The Park is so great that we think it should be a National Park!! I'm afraid that many travelers will not get to experience this park because they will not know about it since it is a State Park. It was a great park for seeing Wildlife....Buffalo, antelope, deer(white tail & mule), and wild donkeys.
The lodge restaurant offered a good variety. We enjoyed a buffalo rib eye steak that was totally delicious --Tasty,tender and juicey as any beef rib eye you've ever eaten. We also had buffalo sausage for breakfast. YUM! As we drove thru the park I just had to start singing: "Oh give me a home,where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play, Where seidom is heard, a discouraging word and the skys are not cloudy all day." Go see this park even if you don't make the side trip to Mt Rushmore....
