The Great Outdoors

There is no place quite like the Black Hills region of South Dakota, an area held sacred by the native people who inhabit it. Plenty of parks, forests, and recreation areas can be visited when you rent an RV near Custer Mountain Cabins & Campground, like nearby Custer State Park. Custer State Park is the first established state park in South Dakota and one of its most visited places too. Home to lovely hiking trails, fantastic camping areas, and the state’s largest wild bison herd, it's no wonder so many people visit each year. The park has even been a filming location for dozens of Hollywood movies thanks to its beautiful and vibrant landscapes.It is impossible to ignore the beauty of Black Hills National Forest, as it surrounds Custer Mountain Cabins & Campground. You’ll pass through this amazing forest to get to your campsite, so let the enchanting views entice you into a stroll through the woods. Thousands of miles of dirt roads and paths criss-cross through the forest, with hundreds of lakes and ponds perfect for swimming, fishing, or boating. There are lofty mountain peaks to climb and campgrounds to stay at if you want to have a tranquil camping experience.Several national parks and monuments dot the area close to Rapid City and Custer, like Jewel Cave National Monument and Wind Cave National Park. Both places are home to massive cave systems, known for being some of the largest and longest in the world. These stunning subterranean passageways are full of stalagmites, stalactites, ancient fossils, incredible animals, and sparkling gemstones. Badlands National Park is a bit farther away in the middle of South Dakota, but worth seeing if you have the time. Amazing geological features, giant canyons, marvelous stone archways, and incredible rock-climbing areas are just a small part of what makes Badlands National Park so unique.

City Sightseeing

There are definitely larger and more interesting places than Custer, but this lovely small town in the Black Hills is a fantastic attraction in its own right. The three-floor Custer County 1881 Courthouse Museum is a brilliant place to learn about the area, from the military campaigns against the native people of South Dakota to the infamous outlaws of the Wild West. Take guided tours given by volunteers while you observe artifacts, weapons, uniforms, and tools used by some of the town’s first residents.A quick drive to Rapid City will bring you even more opportunities to learn, like the Museum @ Black Hills Institute. This marvelous learning center has marine fossils, rare minerals, humongous T-rex skeletons, and a smattering of other natural history artifacts that help tell the story of the land going back millions of years.The Crazy Horse Memorial and the Mount Rushmore National Memorial are two of the largest attractions not just in the state but in the entire country and the source of countless photos. Both monuments pay tribute to legendary tribal chieftains of the Lakota people, and some of the most prominent presidents to ever lead the United States. These impressive artistic and engineering feats are carved into the mountainside, easy to see from miles away. Head here with the Custer camper rental, and you can spend a day exploring the famous sites.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
