Camping in Custer, South Dakota

It is wonderful to be back near Custer State Park. Our last visit was 5 years ago. About 2 years ago, new owners purchased the Flintstone Theme Park Campground in Custer City. They are carrying out a total make-over to change it into the Buffalo Ridge Camp Resort – and what changes they are making, taking full advantage of their views of the Black Hills.

They have added many more new RV campsites that are well spaced out with level parking spots, large concrete patios with large picnic tables and fire pits. There are a variety of sites for those with tents.

There are beautiful furnished teepees with picnic tables and fire pits.

And for those wishing luxury camping you can choose between Glamping Tents

Or Premium Cabins.

Two new swimming pools and a hot tub are tucked in behind the kids playground and the Office and General Store.

Next year they are promising to have some Tree Houses available in the shelter of the trees. And they might even get the small train working again.

This is a wonderful campground for a quiet retreat or to arrange a group/family get away. The staff are very helpful and courteous. Be sure to add it to your list when visiting Custer State Park, the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Rapid City and so much more in South Dakota.
