This was our 1st time staying here when visiting the Black Hills. Usually we stayed in Hill City. It was way beyond our expectations. So relaxing - the hot tub was amazing and listening to the stream at night put us right to sleep. We will be back again as soon as we can!
09/19 - 09/22/2018 - Mike and Candy B. - NE
This was our first time in the Spearfish area and we enjoyed every minute of our trip. The cabin was fantastic, the hot tub was a perfect way to relax and unwind after the 5 hour drive up here from Nebraska. Les and Jackie were very accommodating and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
09/16 - 09/19/2018 - Rob and Lindsay
My boyfriend and I came for a little getaway. This place is perfect! Sitting by the creek, soaking in the hot tub and trying our luck at fishing. We did not catch any fish but really enjoyed trying. Such a peaceful place to relax! Thanks for the memories!
09/09/2018 - Michael and Claire G.
We came here for a mini honeymoon before going back to work on Tuesday. Amazing hospitality! We were given a kind note, wine glasses and champagne as a gift! LOVED the hot tub and chairs by the creek. This cabin was the perfect relaxing getaway. Thank you! We cant wait to come back!
09/03 - 09/06/2018 - Eric and Rhonda B.
When planning ffor our 1 year anniversary, I knew I needed a relaxing, quiet, serene place, I had no idea when I made reservations online that this place would exceed our expectations!! From the moment we checked in until we had to leave, everyone we encountered and everything was awesome. From the bottom of my heart - Thank you!! We will make this a future family destination and our personal retreat. Everything was perfect sitting by the stream, eating on our private deck, sitting in the hot tub….It was exactly what I was wanting for my husband and I.
08/27/2018 - Al and Jan P.
We didnt want to leave…. but the road was calling. Our lives are a little richer because of Wickiup! The cozy cabin - The amazing, clear creek and the especially good people we met. Thank you Jackie and Les for your warmth and also your help with the “Charlie hunt!”. God Bless!
08/24/2018 - Stacy and Sandi
We love this place and will be back!! Beautiful!!
08/19/2018 - Kenzie and Steven
Frontier cabin has been great! Thank you for everything! Our pups enjoyed their time as well. If we ever come back to SD, we will be back!
08/10/2018 - Cortni and Mark, MT
It was our 1st time to Sturgis and the Frontier cabin was an amazing little getaway. The location and accommodations were awesome. Starla is very personable and the food at Cheyenne Crossing, a short walk over the bridge, was fabulous. We will definitely recommend the Wickiup to family and friends.
07/28 - 7/30/2018 - Roby and Lori, IA
This was our 1st time staying here and it was awesome. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The hot tub and views were amazing.
7/20 - 07/27/2018 - George and Marilyn
This is our 3rd year. We love Wickiup Cabins. Stay in the same cabin every year. Les and Jackie and Starla are great people….love them. We will be back next year same time. See you next year!
07/16 - 07/18/2018 - Liz and Andy, ND
This was our first time staying at Wickiup - Frontier Cabin and we loved it. I have been to the Black Hills many times before but this is Andy’s first time in Spearfish Canyon. As we drove through the canyon. As we drove through the canyon, he was awestruck and quiet the whole way.. The cabin was a perfect place to end our day. While we didnt get to enjoy the hot tub (down poured in the evening), I know it would have felt amazing after our many hikes through the canyon. The sounds of the creek nearby were just so calming. I’m hoping we’ll be back very soon!
08/27 - 08/30/2018 - Bob and Linda - NE
We have been coming to the Black Hills for 4 years but have never stayed in this area. It was wonderful. The trails have so much beauty and the falls were beautiful. We were treated like we were family and had come back home. One of our rides had a mishap and Les was right there to stop what he was doing to help us. Such wonderful people. Les, Jackie, Starla and Dani. Thank you to all of you. We were definitely recommend this place to others and hope to return for a longer stay.
07/09 - 07/12/2018 - Bob and Connie, SD
This was the vacation needed, hot tub is fantastic. Hospitality here is awesome. Thanks for everything Les, Jackie and Starla.
07/01 - 07/06/2018 - Will and Jen, IL
This was our first time here, and I know we will be back! We had such a wonderful week here and had a great time doing all of the touristy things (Mt. Rushmore, Devils Tower, Deadwood and The Badlands) Thank you for everything!
6/26 - 06/28/2018 - Katie and Jeff
We have a cabin back home in MN that we keep a journal at for every family trip. Great idea! This is our first time here. Beautiful, peaceful - the sound of the creek is amazing! We drove to Devils Tower and took the Spearfish Canyon way back so many beautiful stops along the way. One night in Sturgis then 2 nights here. off to two busy nights in Deadwood. This was the perfect peaceful getaway. It was actually very nice to have not have access to social media. Thank you for your wonderful accommodations. We hope to be back someday!
06/13 - 06/14/2018 - Jeff and Kathie S., ND
What a cool little cabin! A wonderful place to spend our 10th anniversary. The hot tub and creek are amazing! Hope to come back soon. Les and Jackie gave great ideas of stuff to do. Thank you both!
06/06 - 06/07/2018 - Lauren, Kellen and Kaya, AK
The only thing we knew of Deadwood coming here was the Doris Day movie “Calamity Jane”. We fell in live with you! From the moment we stepped into the cabin we knew we were somewhere special. Thanks to Starla we went on the most amazing hike to Devils Bathtub. Even our 9 year old Alaskan Klee Kai was like a puppy again. We got to experience Mount Moriah during a break in a hail storm and loved walking the old Deadwood Main Street. We will be back!
10/13 - 10/15/2017 - Paul and Marlene
Les and Jackie, thank you for another great stay. Love our visits and chats. Looking forward to next season. Have a blessed winter in Texas and enjoy every day.
10/13/2017 - Debbie and Randy
Our stay was short but we enjoyed our visit. Thank you for your hospitality.
10/03/2017 - Patrick and Denise
Our second anniversary made even more special here at Wickiup. The trout brook never stops it song, and we felt as though we could relax under God’s stars in the hot tub, all night long. Starla couldn’t be more helpful or kind =) We’ll for sure be back - God Willing - its only a matter of time. Thanks to all!
09/30/2017 - Carrie and Dave
This was our 1st weekend in the Black Hills, I only wish we had more time to spend out here. It was very relaxing to come back to this wonderful cabin.
09/24/2017 - Matthew and Danye C., WY
We got married today! Great cabin to come to after all the fun. Quite, relaxing place to unwind. The Jacuzzi was extremely nice listening to the creek and the feeling of the mist.
09/13/2017 - Nancy and Terry S.
Perfect setting for for the Zimmerman cousins reunion. All loved it and your kindness and assist was great. Thank you so much! This is truly a God-blessed place! Blessing to all - Starla - Love you! Les and Jackie - see you soon!
07/27 - 07/31/2017 - Chad and Kayla B.
We got married at Wickiup this weekend and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Our families stayed at the village as well.. It was so convenient to have everyone here and everyone had privacy at the end of many beautiful days. The owners and Starla were extremely accommodating. We are thankful for the memories that were made here this weekend. We will be back soon!
10/23/2016 - Tim and Codi

9/30/2016 - Sue W.
We had a restful, happy time here. We will be back! Great place to stay!
9/18 - 9/23/2016 - Jeff and Julie P., WI
Had a wonderful time celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Such a relaxing week here, between the hot tub, creek and the owls hooting at night. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We didn't technically meet Les and Jackie but Starla was great with things to do. Will definitely be back!
9/12 - 9/13/2016 - Susan and Keith M.
Enjoyed celebrating our 50th anniversary with you! What a fun cabin!
9/7/2016 - Grant and Cindy H.
Came here for a mini honeymoon getaway. The stay here was so peaceful and quiet. Sitting in the hot tub, listening to the creek at night was amazing and relaxing. We will definitely be coming back every year for our anniversary.
9/2 - 9/5/2016 - Amber and Trevor H., ND
This cabin was peaceful and relaxing! the creek and hot tub were wonderful. We even took the tubes down the cold creek! Thank you for the memories.!

8/7 - 8/12/2016 - Charles, Lisa and Stacie
We came here from the state of Florida. Nice weather, nice cabin, better people, say no more! Had no idea it was going to be so relaxing. Thanks to Les and Jackie for all your hospitality. We were here for a short time but loved every camp fire, hot tub and met great people!!]__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
8/1/2016 - Ann and Paul
We loved out stay at the Frontier cabin! The sound of the babbling creek right out our back door lulled us to sleep at night. My husband caught brown trout that we enjoyed for dinner last night. The owners are friendly - the place very wrll kept with beautiful flowers. The cabin was just the right size for the 2 of us - and quite charming. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We'll be back!
7/20 - 7/25/2016 - G Man
Me and my honey had a great time. The people are great. Had a lot of fun!
7/17 - 7/20/16 - Emily and Billy, Aberdeen, SD
This is our 3rd year back at Wickiup! Ever year we have stayed at a different cabin, each just as wonderful, but I think Frontier jumped to the top of our favorites list! Listening to the creek and enjoying peaceful nights standing on the bridge make it one of the reasons we come back every year! Absolutely beautiful and peaceful here! Thank you for keeping up such a wonderful place to get away. See you next year! Thanks again Les and Starla! You two are wonderful people! God Bless!
7/7 - 7/10/2016 - Scott and Melanie, Omaha, NE
My husband and I needed a getaway and this place was perfect. We enjoyed the hot tub each night while listening to the babbling creek. It was quite peaceful. We really hope to be back some day!
7/1 - 7/3/2016 - Tweeter, Yankton, SD
Frontier is an awesome sacred space. Loved the creek, cabin and the hot tub. It is so beautiful here, can't wait to come back. Holy moments to cherish. Thank you to all the staff. Many Blessings! You change lives with your light.
6/30/16 - Tom and Tammy, Atlanta, IN
We had a very nice time here. You made things very comfortable for us. We hope to return some time in the near future.
6/25/2016 - Dave and Jodi
We were blessed with another visit with Les and Jackie. Such a wonderful time. Such wonderful hosts!
6/22/2016 - Michael and Deborah, KS
We had a dream we lived in a cabin in the pines. The smell was intoxicating and next to this cabin was a stream that sang to us all night long. After a hard days ride a magic pool of hot bubbling water removed all aches from our old backs. What a wonderful dream, what sweet memories we will take with us. Thank you.
Fathers Day Weekend, Bob and Monna and Family
Had a great time! See you all next year same time!
6/16/2016 - Ty and Chris
This was our first trip to the Black Hills. We have had a great adventure for sure. Thank you for your hospitality and the short talks in the evening. The cabin was great and celebrating our 18th anniversary here was even better! When we come back...and we will...we will for be staying at your camp. Thank you all.
6/10/2016 - Steve and Chris
Our marriage journey began in Wickiup Cabin Village 36 years ago....Frontier Cabin. This camp was far more rustic and just as beautiful. The marriage has been a great adventure too....3 beautiful daughters and 3 beautiful grandchildren.
6/3 - 6/6/06 - Toni and Mike, Des Moines, IA
We are not going to state the obvious that previous guests over the last 6 years have already noted so nicely here. What we do want to say is what worked for us during our stay in the Frontier Cabin. 1) USE THE HOT TUB - forget about the wet bathing suits and how taking the cover off the deck is hard. It is worth it. 2) Do not put clothes or bags next to the heater/stove. When it first lights up there is a puff of flame that shoots out from the cracks. This is normal, but it can catch you by surprise if you haven't used one before. 3) Listen to Starla, Les and the staff. We ate at the Social Club and Deadwood Dicks all at their recommendation and loved them. We also drove via the routes suggested to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Devils Tower and had no problems (since wifi access for maps was spotty or non-existent.) 4) Open windows - when you get the cross breeze it cools down quickly and you will be thankful for the quilt. 5) Be still and listen. It took us almost 2 days to actually relax from our busy lives. Once we sat out in the chairs on the deck and stopped talking and planning, something amazing happened. We realized what was REALLY important again. It isn't our cell phones and REALITY TV Shows...it is US.
6/2/16 - Josh and Amanda, Huron, SD
Stayed for one night on our honeymoon adventures! It's so perfect for us we will be returning in the future for more adventures! Thanks for the cutest little get away! Very relaxing and exactly what we needed!!
5/31/16 - Mike and Steph, Sioux Falls, SD
I cannot say enough good things about this place! This cabin had everything we wanted and more. When our car broke down, everyone was so helpful and I cannot say Thank you enough! We are already planning our next trip and this is the only place we will stay from now on! Thank you for everything!
5/28/2016 - Loren and Kris, Nisland, SD
Our 33rd anniversary....stayed only 1 night. Adorable cabins. Beautiful location. Hope to come back.
10/24/2015 - Jack and Connie, SD
Thanks for the great stay Jackie and Les! We loved the cabin and the hot tub under the moon - so pretty out! You cant get out of here before you are thinking about when you can come back.
10/18/2015 - Steve and Jen
Always a wonderful stay. Miss the "old" cabins with the monarch stoves, etc. but appreciate the indoor plumbing! :)
10/9/2015 - Linda and Kevin
Had a wonderful stay. It was a very relaxing environment to get away from the city. Just a beautiful place and we loved the hot tub where we could relax and stare at the stars. Thanks again for your kindness and you'll be seeing us again.
9/28 - 9/30/2015 - Marge and Charlie, NJ
Love our little cabin next to the creek. It was exactly what I was looking for and it was exactly what we got. It was perfect after out days full of sight seeing. Hot tub was great!
9/23 - 9/26/2015 - Stu and Tracey, IL
We just love Wickiup! Our first night was at Ten Sleep which was a darling cabin and then we were lucky enough to get Frontier for 2 nights. What a cute cabin and oh that lovely babbling creek singing to us. We loved the hot tub on the 2 unbelievably clear, starry, almost full moon nights. Jackie and Les were wonderful hosts. This place has such charm - so very relaxing and so friendly. We will recommend Wickiup to anyone coming near the Black Hills and we sure hope to come back!
September 2015 - Nick and Sandra
Sandra and I showed up and immediately had a strong adoration with the babbling creek. The more we unloaded the car the more enduring our surroundings became. Was such a wonder setting up the hammock we debated on bringing. And when we layed right next to that gushing water with the Christmas lights illuminating the tree tops at night we fell in love with this place. Was such a pleasure playing a quiet game of cards next to the creek. The hot tub under the half moon really helped melt away the miles from the road. Watching the stars in the clear sky while the warm water and cool air glided over us was magical. Thank you for the beautiful hospitality and warm smiles. You're little dog looked like he was on top of the world and we're so happy he has a good life with you. We're also please there are friendly and gracious people out there like you who love to share all this.
9/17/2015 - BJ and T, AR
Enjoyed out 5 day stay. Les and Jackie are very nice and went out of their way to answer any of your questions and make sure our stay was awesome. The scenic drive up HWY 14a by Roughlock Falls was absolutely gorgeous. We ate entirely too much on this vacation, especially enjoyed the breakfast at Cheyenne Crossing. If you don't mind a little drive, then recommend the Hwy thru Custer State Park and up Iron Horse Mtn Rd. - its breathtaking.
9/10/15 - The Jackson's, SD
Great to be back. Have stayed here since the 60's but for the last 10 years or so we have not been able to come. Glad to be back!
8/28/2015 - Stephan and Nicole, MA
8/20 - 8/23/2015 - Brian and PaHi, Canada
Great place to stay and unwind. Kool Deadwood nights is a great place to have a drink, see your favorite old cars you cant afford and dance to live music. Wickiup is the best place we have stayed on our trip. Fireplace, ht tub, rushing creek. Sounds like retirement. My beautiful wife's 49th birthday today!
8/13 - 8/15/2015 - Greg and Cindi, LA
Les and Jackie, we have been married for 35 years, we never had a honeymoon, work always seemed to get in the way and money ALWAYS in short supply. I now work 30 on and 30 off in Montana and have been by Wickiup cabins on a few occasions but was always on a short schedule. Well we got a long weekend so we booked a cabin. Got Goldenwest but kinda wanted Frontier because it was back on the creek. Someone cancelled their trip and we were able to get just what we wanted! The quiet solitude of sitting by the creek and counting the gallons of water that rolled by was awesome. We have always loved this area since we first came through on our way back to Montana. Thank you for the hospitality and cozy little Frontier cabin. We will NEVER forget this stop!
7/6/2015 - WY
So peaceful. Loved the creek flowing by. Enjoyed the hot tub in the misty rain. The dog enjoyed the deck and smells. Friendly and cozy. Would come back again and again.
6/22 - 6/28/2015 - Laurie and Terry, IA
Loved it. Perfect vacation to explore the Hills. Wonderful people. Relaxing place to wind down after a day of exploring. I highly recommend a sunrise hot tub - so beautiful from this cabin. Walk across the bridge and over to Cheyenne crossing for a great breakfast. Will be back for sure!
6/18/2015 - Judy and Jose, CA
We both loved it here. Didn't get to meet Les but Jackie and Starla were wonderful, friendly and helpful. Would love to come back!

Your cabin is very cute and comfortable. We came as a surprise weekend for me. My fiance rented it to propose to me and it was absolutely perfect!
5/4/2015 - Felise and Jim, ND
Had a great time - enjoyed very much having coffee every morning while absorbing all the beauty around me. We came here to de-stress and leave work behind for awhile. Wonderful, peaceful place. Also enjoyed the hot tub on these chilly nights. Very nice hosts. Thank you!
11/3/2014 - Bill and Amanda
We came just for 1 night, for our 8 year anniversary. We absolutely loved it here. We had everything that we needed here. We do not live far away so we will be back hopefully with our grandkids.
10/17 - 10/19/2014 - Anna and Michael, SD
This was our 1st time here and it was absolutely wonderful! The location is beautiful, the hot tub was amazing under the fall night sky and being next to the creek each day was more than we could have asked for. Thank you so much! We will definitely be back! (We considered never leaving!)
10/8 - 10/12/2014 - Scot and Nicky, NE
Out 1st time here at this beautiful location. The cabin is so cozy, scenery amazing and the hot tub was oh so wonderful. Les and Jackie were so sweet and kind. Came here for our 5 years of being together and will most definitely be back! The creek behind Frontier Cabin gave our stay here the extra relaxing feel. Thank you so much for having us stay here and making us feel like family.
07/17/2013 - TJ and Kathy, SD
We came here to celebrate our marriage over two years ago (a belated honeymoon) It was a short trip, but the cabin was a perfect place for us to stay. So beautiful and relaxing. Thank you for the memories. We will be back with the kids next time!
