When you're up for adventure, stay in Custer, South Dakota and be minutes-not miles-from the best climbs, trails and family fun of the Black Hills. Located on the edge of Custer State Park, Custer and the surrounding area offers travelers unique lodging, dining and shopping opportunities, as well as unlimited family fun.  This uncrowded mountain town is a natural playground for all adventure seekers. Plus, you're just minutes from Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Wind Cave National Park, and Jewel Cave National Monument. Why spend your time in the car instead of at the attractions and doing what you came to the Black Hills to experience?!  By staying in Custer and exploring the Southern Black Hills you are literally minutes, not miles, from the best this area has to offer!
