    My wife and I stayed in one of the cabins for 3 days. The decor was rustic and homey. Very clean and well-appointed. Convenient to the Custer State Park wildlife loop road and Wind Cave N.P. Scenery nearby was spectacular.

    Stopped here for lunch as we toured the park. Great atmosphere, food and employees. Beautiful setting also. The walls of the restaurant are beautiful logs with lots of mounted animals. If you don't see them in the park, you'll see them here!
