Broken Arrow RV Park, Custer, SD


We made it to Custer this afternoon and got settled in at our new digs for the next 2 weeks, Broken Arrow RV. Picked this place because we wanted hookups for a change and I overheard someone on the Zion National Park shuttle talk about how much they liked it here. We were able to reserve an end site so at least we don’t have anyone on one side of us. It is a nice enough RV park, the bathrooms are great, the Wi-Fi is fast and there is laundry. Stay a week and pay for 6 nights, so we have water and electric for about $22/night. What a luxury after dry camping most of the time the past three months. Also they have a nightly ice cream social.

After we arrived, I defrosted the refrigerator and vacuumed, while Jim changed the oil in the rig. They said we could wash the rig here, so we are planning to do that and wax it also sometime over the next two weeks. And we plan to rent a carpet cleaner while we’re here and Jim wants to flush the water heater. We have been playing tourist too much this summer and have been neglecting things.

So with all the local attractions and chores, we should have a busy couple of weeks coming up.


  1. We stayed in the Black Hills area for a week following 4th July w/e - what a lot to do, wasn't long enough! Custer State Park was wonderful, Wind Cave NP, Mount Rushmore, drove out to Devil's Tower, moved on to Badlands NP and Minuteman Missile - an area packed with things to do, we had a wonderful time there.

  2. I'm sure Jim will enjoy the nightly ice cream social if he's allowed more than a thimble full.

    Then one day horse back riding.

    Enjoy y'all.
