This is one of my favorite places to travel. There is so much to see and do in
the area that you could spend two weeks here. It is a great vacation for the
whole family. My kids love to go to the black hills.
Custer State Park is a fantastic spot for wildlife photography and seeing the
Black Hills. Take the Wildlife Loop Road for lots of bison, Deer, Rocky Mountain
Sheep, prairie dogs, mountain goats, antelope, elk and wild burros. This Park has
the largest publicly-owned herd of bison in the United States. Don’t miss the
needles highway and Sylvan Lake. Mount Coolidge will give to a view of the entire
area. In the fall they have a
bison roundup that is great.
