Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Angostura Recreation Area and Vore Buffalo Jump. Get outdoors at Sunday Gulch Trail and Cathedral Spires Hiking Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Custer: Mount Moriah Cemetery (in Deadwood), Mammoth Site of Hot Springs (in Hot Springs) and Lead (Roughlock Falls State Nature Area & Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Native American Educational and Cultural Center, explore the striking landscape at Needles Eye Tunnel, take a peaceful walk through Black Hills National Forest, and admire the majestic nature at Custer State Park.

To see where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Custer trip itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 77°F in August, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
