The Black Hills Central’s 1880 Train is featured in the exclusive short list of day trips in Parade Magazine’s March 28 article entitled “America’s Greatest Train Rides”. This outstanding experience is yours to experience when you participate in Shebby Lee Tours’ Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup Sept. 25-30. This increasingly popular Old West tradition drew over 12,000 spectators last fall, but you will enjoy a prime viewing location as these pre-historic beasts rumble by, plus priority admission to the corral and vendors area.
This one-of-a-kind event also includes a chuckwagon buffalo cookout, arts festival, buffalo wallow chili cookoff, buffalo chip throwing contest, cowboy poets, musical entertainment and much more.
In addition to the Roundup, this program offers customary Indian Summer weather, beautiful Black Hills scenery and popular attractions including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Badlands National Park, Wall Drug, the 1880 train, Tatanka, and historic Deadwood.
This six day hub-and-spoke itinerary is based at Palmer Gulch Lodge, situated in the shadow of Harney Peak. The new rock and log construction lends the lodge just the right rustic charm for your Black Hills adventure.
