Bison, deer, turkeys and more awaits you at Custer State Park in South Dakota. This 71,000 acre state park in the Black Hills offers something for nearly everyone, but is perhaps best known for its large herd of wild buffalo. The herd, which numbers around 1,300, is one of the largest in the U.S.

We visited Custer State Park during the summer of 2018 as part of a driving tour of the Black Hills. We were fortunate to see many bison, a flock of wild turkeys, deer, and more during our time at the park.
