The Custer State Park Halloween Hike will be held Friday and Saturday, Oct 27-28.

The 2-mile trail will be lit only by jack-o-lanterns and tiki torches as visitors hike their way from the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center to the Game Lodge Campground, and then return to the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center. 

The prairie dog has gone missing at Custer State Park!  Come help solve the mystery and attend the annual Halloween Hike.  Each hike is led by a guide and will last approximately 60 minutes.  The jack-o-lanterns are donated by local businesses and carved by the Custer School students.  Actors and guides include Custer State Park staff and volunteers.

Hikes depart from the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center every 15 minutes starting with the first hike at 5:30pm and the last hike at 8:00pm each night.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling (605) 255-4464.  There is no fee for the hike; however, a park entrance license is required and can be purchased at the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center upon your arrival to the Halloween Hike.
