  • Due to Custer State Park’s location and the distance to outside housing, most of the seasonal staff is housed within the Park. They also provide three meals per day to all staff members who take advantage of the meal plan.

Residents are expected to respect visitation restrictions, night-time quiet hours, and maintain the cleanliness of the facilities. The Company is not liable for loss of personal effects and we recommend that you do not bring items of extreme value.
