Lookin’ for a Ma & Pa kind of place? Quiet and Tranquil? Well… ya done found it!!!! The Roost Resort is a campground in Custer, South Dakota, that hosts 11 cozy cabins for rent with kitchenettes and all the essentials. We also have RV rental sites, 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 (swing set & basketball hoop) 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, experience fishing at one of the local lakes, or just stopping by for a well-deserved rest and relaxation, give us a call to start your vacation!
The Roost Resort is gearing up for our 2021 season. Projected opening date is May 1st depending on the weather, but we are always open starting May 15th. We close October 1st.
We are going to try something new this year when it comes to making reservations. We understand that people do prefer to book online instead of calling. So, if you prefer to book with us on line, please send us an email (click on our contact tab). Let us know what your looking for. RV, tent site or Cabin, your dates, and the number of people in your party. From there we will email our availability back to you. If your in agreement, we will secure the deposit needed via credit card and email you back a confirmation. We check our emails several times a day and our response time should not be very long.
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. We have also added a Camp map to our web page too, so make sure you check that out so you know where your cabin/RV site is located. RV's checking in SHOULD pull to the right and stop on the asphalt road just prior to turning onto the main entrance gravel road to check in and get directions to your RV site. PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THE ROADWAY.
Our 2021 calendar is active and has been filled with lots of reservations already. RV'ers need to book sooner than later. Don't wait or we may not have a spot for you. If you're planning on visiting us this summer and know your dates, please give us a call. 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.
