(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 Log Cabin) in which you will be staying is in the National Register of Historic Sites. The other (Sky View Log 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. Our Black Hills Cabins/ Vacation Homes are Located 7 miles NW of the town of Custer SD, 5 miles W of Crazy Horse Monument and 15 miles from Mt Rushmore in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota. We are privately owned on 5 beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota acres.
