15 Perfect Weekend Getaways
Custer State Park, South Dakota
Bison, prairie dogs, elk and other creatures roam near (and often cross!) the Wildlife Loop Road at Custer State Park, about 45 miles southwest of Rapid City. But animals are just the beginning here. Scenic Needles Highway winds through the park, hiking trails beg for exploration, and even rookie campers will feel at home at the park's Blue Bell campground.
