Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Venture out of the city with trips to Keystone (Breezy Point Picnic Area, Presidential Trail, &more), Mammoth Site of Hot Springs (in Hot Springs) and Wind Cave National Park (in Wind Cave National Park). There's lots more to do: take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, explore and take pictures at Needles Highway, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and take a peaceful walk through Black Hills National Forest.

For reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Custer holiday planning app.

Rapid City to Custer is an approximately 1-hour car ride. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Rapid City in June, with highs in Custer at °F and lows at °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can drive back home.
