Lookin’ for a Ma & Pa kind of place? Quiet and Tranquil? Well… ya done found it! The Roost Resort, a family-owned campground in Custer, South Dakota, hosts 10 cozy cabins for rent with kitchenettes and all the essentials. We also have 12 RV rental sites, and 5 tent camping sites, all nestled in nature with pine trees, deer, wild turkeys, and critters. BBQ grills, fire pits, a full bathhouse and a small playground for kids is all included. We are just a short drive from Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, and 1.5 miles from Custer State Park. Whether you’re on your way to Sturgis, heading underground in Wind Cave National Park, or just stopping by for a well-deserved rest and relaxation, give us a call to start your vacation!


COVID-19 update:  At this time we are planning to open as usual on May 15th 2020.  Our cabins  and RV sites are spaced far enough apart to feel comfortable and to maintain social distancing. We are known for our cleanliness and sanitation and that will continue to be our number 1 priority.  Our policies regarding deposit refunds will remain in effect UNLESS we are required by the state of South Dakota to close. 


Make sure you visit us on Facebook, The Roost Resort LLC.  Shelah does a great job of posting videos and pictures of everything that goes on around here.

Our 2020 calendar is active and has been filled with lots of reservations already.  If you're planning on visiting us this summer and know your dates, please give us a call.  Sturgis week only has a few openings left, so if you're one of our regulars who stay with us during the Rally, please call us sooner rather than later for that reservation. It's the 80th, so its a big one.  PLEASE REVIEW our rates and updated policy information before booking. Additionally, our office hours have changed! We are not physically manning the office until 3:00PM.  ALL CHECK-INS and GUEST SERVICES begin at this time with the office closing at 8:00PM.  This new schedule allows better time management for your hosts who are out physically working on the property.  We always have the office phone in our possession while we're open for the season, so if there is an emergency outside of our office hours, you can always call us. 


Are you Looking for a great place for a family reunion?  How about a get together with a bunch of your closest friends?  Let the "South Dakota Lady" (Chuck Wagon) and our very own local Custer Cowboy, Phil Randal, provide you with a very unique cowboy cook out - right here on the property.  Go back in time to the 1800's and get some good ole boy chuck wagon grub and learn how the cowboys really ate during their time on those cattle drives.  Call us for details if you're interested, and definitely check out our Facebook page for pictures of some of our past guests enjoying the experience.


Make sure to check out our events calendar to see if there is an event planned while you are here visiting with us.  The calendar will help you plan your Black Hills activities around the Roost Resort activities if you decide you want to attend.  All events are complementary unless otherwise posted.
