Do not tell me ! - I was reading and noticed you made an error! It should be 25 to 40 million years ago.
sweet - this was an awesome national park

A great park - My husband & I stayed at the park the 20th of Aug. of this yr. The camp host was helpful & very friendly. The park was so clean, just a great place to stay. We will be going back. We live in southern Mo. but the drive is worth it.
WHAT A GREAT VACATION - If you ever thought about going to see the area quit thinking about it and go it was worth the 16 hr drive for me 0ne way....I promise you wont be disapointed.
Best Park - This park is great... I think it has 6 miles of trails and you can rent out equipment for free.. (besides the bikes) and if your looking for a great cabin id recommend cabin 3 or 4 And there lodge is super fancy it is way nicer than I could have expected
Great fishing and playgrounds for kids. -
This has become my second home. - First saw the park as a small boy and have not missed a summer here for over 35 years. I recommend to everyone to see and stay in the park at least once.

A great experience!! - We were here around 4-5 summers ago. I can still remember how awsome it felt to see the wild buffalo,and other wildlife. I have always said I would LOVE to up and move to South Dakota and after being there that feeling is even stronger. I dream of the day when I will be able to make a return trip. Ohio seems like a world away from this majestic, beautiful place.

We visit again and again! - The Black Hills of South Dakota and Custer State Park is my favorite place in the country! We visit there every year (from Iowa) I love to visit all the familiar places and yet continue to find something new each time. We visited in January this year to have a new experience and will be returning in the fall. The beauty of the Park, the smell of the trees, impressive wildlife, makes me want to get in the car and go right now!
