Custer State Park is one of the world’s best wildlife sanctuaries and a refuge to one of the largest American buffalo herds in the world. Upon arrival, check in at the State Game Lodge and start enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Depending on your time of arrival, you may want to take a quick jaunt over to the Peter Norbeck Visitor Center, located near the lodge. Here you can browse displays and exhibits about the park’s wildlife, geology and history. There is also a gift shop and park staff available to answer questions and offer guidance. Enjoy dinner tonight at one of the Park’s four restaurants, each with their own flavors and specialties. From elegant meals to hearty ranch fare and family-friendly home-style cooking, you’re sure to find something to please everyone.
Today you’ll participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience – A Jeep Ride through the Buffalo Herds! Start your day by having a hot full American breakfast served buffet style. Enjoy the first part of this day as you wish. With 71,000 acres of spectacular terrain, Custer offers visitors a chance for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and driving the scenic drives. Then, promptly at 4pm (unless otherwise specified by the front desk staff ) you’ll embark on a wild adventure as an open-air Jeep takes you off-road for 1.5 to 2 hours through the park to where the herds of buffalo, elk and deer await. The driver will offer historical and educational information about the park and its wildlife along the way. He will also help you spot other wildlife and give you time for picture taking. Immediately following, you’ll go on a traditional Hay Ride to meet up with the Chuck Wagon Cookout crew in the mountain canyon for a western supper feast and live entertainment. You’ll also get your own souvenir cowboy hat and bandanna to play the part. Menu includes your choice of an 8 oz. choice sirloin steak or a 1/3 lb. hamburger with all the fixin’s, including cowboy beans, cornbread and honey, potato salad, coleslaw, watermelon, cookies, chuck wagon coffee and lemonade. A vegetarian option is also available.
