Welcome to historic Camp Custer Log Cabins! (Sky View) is a 1,860 square foot peaceful, beautiful, historic log cabin. Large enough for groups up to 13, yet cozy enough for smaller ones! (Sky View) and our other cabin (Pine Crest) were built in the 1930's by the CCC's (Civilian Conservation Corps) They were the Army Officer's quarters of Camp Custer. One may walk across the road and see the foundations of the buildings that were once part of Camp Custer. In all of South Dakota these two ponderosa pine Log Cabins are the only officer’s quarters that remain of the CCC Camp. One of the Cabins (Pine Crest Cabin) in which you will be staying is in the National Register of Historic Sites. The other (Sky View Cabin) is not registered due to a recent addition to the cabin. If you are looking forward to a peaceful relaxing vacation this is the place for you, away from all the hustle and bustle of town.

The following was very eloquently, beautifully and truthfully written by one of our guest at Camp Custer Log Cabins!
Make your vacation mean more than a motel and listening to stranger’s voices in the night! Make it an affordable home away from home, watching eagles soar, savoring peaceful surroundings and so much more!
Imagine adding historic value to your vacation while sleeping in the same cabins once occupied by brave soldiers! What an honor to sit at the same table Colonel Lattimore fashioned with his hands! Imagine waking up to the whistling meadow larks, relishing spectacular sunrises, roaming deer, and other magnificent creatures! The same serenity the soldiers encompassed in the midst of turmoil can now bring peace and order to your busy life! There’s more!
Imagine the hoot of a barn owl and coyote’s distant calls causing you to duck beneath the covers! Snug and warm; you’re drawn to an orange glow on the wooden deck. It’s the harvest moon rising, above the dark hills, in all its glory! Throwing a robe and slippers on, you rush outside to enjoy the rest of the velvet sky, now dazzling with stars! The quiet whoosh of wind, blowing through the spice scented pines trees, sends slight chills down your back. You begin to wonder what beauty remains untapped in the winter season! Loading logs into the fire pit, family and friends join you around the campfire. Coffee, cocoa, snacks, story telling and laughter soon follow. Longing to soak the soothing aura in by yourself, you sit back and smile. These moments are truly meant to be shared. There’s more!
With an ample amount of money still left in your pocket, your car is packed and ready to go, but you’re not. Behind you surely feels like home, a place you’ve found great rest. Ahead is an adventure through the hills. With mixed emotions, you turn to take another look. Spring would surely burst with vibrant wild flowers flowing in the field and up to the rustic log cabins! The baby bird’s chirping would bring smiles to your morning, along with chipmunks rushing up and down the trees! What about the summer? Volleyball, sing-a-longs, relaxing with a good book, legs stretched out, perhaps with no one around. The fall is an absolutely gorgeous array of colors from the ground to the sky! And winter? Building snowmen and snowball fights would revive your youth! How stunning the glitter of the pristine snow in the moonlight would be, equally matched with a passionate night in front of the fireplace! Treasured moments and lasting memories; it’s a taste of heaven on earth! Yes, you agree, it’s a place to call home away from home! Are we there yet? -Annie Hudson, Copyright 2015
