There are many beautiful places to go hiking in the Black Hills, but one of the favorites is Sylvan Lake. One of the reasons the area is so popular is because Sylvan Lake offers more than just hiking in the Black Hills. With a picnic area, paddle boats for rent, fishing, and rock climbing, Sylvan Lake is a location in Custer State Park where you and your family could easily spend a few hours to an entire day.
Every year, people from all over come to Custer State Park for the annual Buffalo Roundup. There’s nothing quite like feeling the thunder beneath your feet as you see a massive herd of buffalo driven across the rangeland. Cowboys and cowgirls gather to drive the herd of buffalo in a spectacular site that also functions as a critical herd management tool. This year, the annual Buffalo Roundup in Custer State Park will take place on Friday, September 30, 2016 at 9:30 am.
