Custer State Park, located near Custer, South Dakota, isn't just home to one of the largest free roaming buffalo herds; it's so beautiful that the State Game Lodge served as the "summer White House" for President Calvin Coolidge in 1927.

In addition to the park, the Peter Norbeck Scenic Highway offers scenic drives, campgrounds, lodges and fine dining. This 71,000-acre vacation paradise is home to abundant wildlife including one of the nation's largest free roaming buffalo herds, making it common to encounter a "Buffalo Jam" while driving in the park. Look for elusive elk, deer, big horn sheep, mountain goats and bands of begging burros.

Four distinct lodges offer accommodations to suit every family, from rustic and historic to elegant and upscale. All offer unique on-site activities, including Jeep rides to the buffalo herds, guided fly-fishing and chuckwagon suppers. There are also endless camping opportunities in the park. French Creek Horse Camp even has corrals for campers with horses.

While you're in the park, take in the Peter Norbeck Scenic Byway. This 66-mile route honors a South Dakota conservationist, governor and U.S. senator and features several scenic wonders including the Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road.

Each Fall, Custer State Park hosts the Buffalo Roundup, which showcases one of the largest herds of free-roaming buffalo in the United States. The Black Hills Playhouse offers professional theater performances in a beautiful Black Hills setting.
Free entrance into the park; Open House Weekend May 15-17,2015, Buffalo Roundup Sep. 25, 2015 and Buffalo Auction Nov 14, 2014.

Booking Instructions: Please select one pass option: either 1 person, 2 person or 3 person vehicle pass and leave quantity at 1. Vehicle Park pass is valid for 7 days once validated upon arrival at the park.
