While visiting Mt. Rushmore, we stayed at the State Game Lodge, Creekside. The room was exceptionally clean, very new. The room had a separation of living and sleeping area and included a microwave and mini-fridge. Staff, especially Jason, were fantastic.
Cant say enough good things about Custer State Park & the Game Lodge. People are friendly & helpful.Food is Good. Location is perfect for hiking and the Black Hills. Quiet for those without kids. We would definitely stay again.
The motel no longer accepts pets (boo), so booked a two bedroom cabin to the west of the lodge, backing up to the creek. Consider this a winter review. Cabin clean and serviced daily. Large common and dining/kitchen room stocked with all the kitchen gear....เพิ่มเติม
Yes, this is the newer property just to the east. Doesn't connect to the original lodge.

Custer is about 45 minutes from Rapid City. It is very easy to see Mount Rushmore, the needles, Crazyhorse in one day. Definitely do the wildlife loop! I know the cost is high but the jeep tour is fabulous!! In terms of the Badlands, if you have the time, I definitely recommend it. There is a lot of history to see there. There are also some very simple hikes on boardwalks that are very doable and can be enjoyed even by those in wheelchairs. Once you get to interstate 90, the badlands Loop runs between approximately between exit 131 and 110. Conveniently, for your purposes, wall drug is located at mile marker 110. As others have noted, wall drug is kind of a drive-by. But you can spend a few minutes and entertain yourself and maybe grab a free glass of ice water... A leftover relic from the Great Depression. The Badlands loop itself if you simply go through and not make too many stops should take about two hours to complete. So that excursion should be considered a full day. But if you can do it, I really recommend it. Also, as others have noted, you can stop through Yellowstone national park on your way out. In Cody Wyoming there is a very interesting old hotel that is worth stopping at, the Occidental. Deadwood is certainly a fun day trip as well and there are some good restaurants there. Spearfish Canyon, really should not be missed. And if Indian tacos are your thing, definitely stop at Cheyenne Crossing as they have the best! And don't forget about their homemade carrot cake… Worth the detour. There is also a friendly "ghost town" called Rochford which is a fun diversion. Stop in the Moonshine Gulch saloon and order a Betsy Burger. Rochford has a tremendous amount of history as it is the site of the old Standby Gold Mill. The regional joke is that all roads lead to Rochford. The only thing left standing is the foundation. However a famous local watercolor painter, John Crayne has a painting of the site. Prior to Homestake Mining company tearing it down. One of the prince is hanging in the bar. Hill city is also an excellent place to stop. The 1880 train runs between Hill city and Keystone, at the foothills of Mount Rushmore. It is a steam train and is very interesting. Also, Hill city boasts the John Crane art studio. Also, if you have heard of The dinosaur named Sue who is housed (now) at the field museum in Chicago, she was originally unearthed and on display at the Black Hills institute in Hill city. I am a South Dakota girl born and raised, who studied in the Black Hills for my undergraduate work. My parents also own a cabin out in the hills. I hope that you enjoy your trip and the Black Hills and all it has to offer. Please don't forget about wind Cave national Park and Jewel Cave national monument. They are beautiful. Also, don't forget to pick up a national Park pass if you will be hitting a lot of parks. You also have some fabulous national monuments and parks in your own state😎. Aloha and mahalo for your visit to our state!!
Does the small sleeping cabin ha air-conditioning?

"WiFi fix? Head east 1/2 mile to the motel piece of the property - comfy lobby with fireplace and easy chairs."
