Custer State Park is located in the Black Hills of southwestern South Dakota.  The park is South Dakota’s largest and first state park, named after Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer.  The park covers over 71,000 acres of hilly terrain and is home to many wild animals including a famous herd of 1500 free roaming bison.  Elk, mule deer, white tailed deer, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, mountain lions, and feral burros also inhabit the park.  The park is famous for its scenic drives with views of the bison herd and prairie dog towns.  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Navin75)
