I loved driving to, and then through Custer State Park. You drive through amazing lush green mountains, so much beauty nearby. When you arrive, there are plains and if you're lucky enough as we were, you will see bison among other animals grazing. We has lunch at the park in a big wooden cabin structure and it was really nice to look out over the park. Great place to visit if you're in the area!Recommended for:

Custer State Park stretches over a gorgeous expanse of the Black Hills. The terrain is hilly, rocky and heavily forested. It's also a great place to see buffalo wandering along the roadside. The campgrounds are fully equipped with flush toilets and showers. There are several camp stores and even a restaurant that serves up pancake breakfasts.Recommended for:

I drove through Custer State Park, thinking it would be the quickest way to get to where I was going. While the drive was scenic, various other tourist drivers would stop in the middle of the road at the sighting of any animal. It made for an agonizingly long drive.
The State Park itself is quite nice though.

This is an interesting park for wildlife. Driving through the so called 'Wildlife loop' you could easily meet bisons, deers, pranghorns. We had also the chance to see a fox, walking in silence through tall grass. It is a short trip you could manage in a couple of hours.
