Custer State Park is well maintained, beautiful country. Our lodge we stayed in was very nice and the rooms were very clean and decorated very well. The breakfast there was okay, but feel they could have added more hot options. The only real negative of our stay was that when we got there the fire alarm was going off (even though there was no fire) and there was no way for them to turn it off on-site, so it continued to sound for quite some time. Otherwise, it was a nice stay in a beautiful area.
I visited this place only for lunch as part of a tour. Lunch was good. Staff was attentive, the gift shop had a lot of nice things that I didn't see in downtown Rapid city, and prices are fair. I heard from guests that the stay in their cabins was a good experience. Bison roam freely nearby
