Custer State Park Spur Description

The Custer State Park Spur offers a 3.2-mile paved connection between South Dakota's 109-mile George S. Mickelson Trail and Custer State Park, home to bison, coyotes, and prairie dogs in the beautiful Black Hills. For those on a multi-day adventure on the Mickelson Trail, this spur also provides a link to camping opportunities inside the park.

The trail begins on Custer's east side and parallels U.S. Highway 16 to Stockade Lake in the park. Here you'll find the Gordon Stockade, a replica of a log fortress built during the 1874 gold rush. A wide grassy median separates the trail from the road, but note that there is little shade along the route.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Custer State Park.
