Last entry for us was our 35th anniversary 8-16-2013. Back in “Pioneer” for our 40th. Thanks again to Jackie and Les for your hospitality along with your managers. Will be back - our daughter is a sophomore at BHSU now!

Wow! This was a wonderful unexpected surprise. We were up for Sturgis Bike Week and loved coming “HOME” to a cozy warm cabin and the fun new friends, with great stories and laughter around the awesome fire pit! We will come back and stay again and also recommend this to all of our family (about 1000 of us total) and our friends. A great escape into the beauty of nature. Much love and gratitude!

PBR Home. Thank you so very much for providing us a “home” during our stay! Starla, John, Jackie and Les went above and beyond for us. Wickiup feels more like a family than a campground. We appreciate all you do to keep this place running so smoothly and focusing on our comfort. As always the hills were beautiful and I am always in awe of nature out here. We very much look forward to being back next year.

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience in SD. Peyton had so much fun with Lila. She was such a joy and made Peyton’s vacation. We loved how central you are to so many wonderful sites. Keep up the good work.

This is our first time in SD and our first real family vacation! My cousin had his wedding here on 6-30-2018 and it was beautiful. Was so amazing to have almost the whole extended family together. Little by little everyone went home on different days. Was sad to see them all leave but also nice to have some R.R. We have made so many memories from hiking to Devil’s Bathtub to seeing South Dakota’s National Monuments. Oh, and the tornado that hit Friday night a couple miles down on Spearfish Canyon! A huge thanks to Starla, Les and his wife for being the most awesome hosts ever! Wish we didn’t have to leave, would stay another week if work allowed us the time off! But we will be back in the future for sure! P.S. I will always be thankful for Les margaritas!

Dear Everyone - Just wanted to let you know how enchanting your resort is. From the chilly early morning walks to your delightful sun shining afternoons, we could not have enjoyed our couple adventure any better. From Chris catching trout out of your cabin side stream to Paul taking his much needed afternoon naps, our stay was filled with hundreds of pleasant memories. The wildlife was spectacular. The bugling elk really got us excited. Cozy warm nights in the cabin topped off our days of exploring this beautiful country together. All the best!

So glad we stumbled upon this place! Les and Jackie were terrific and all the friendly people! The best! The beds could be bigger (lol) but overall the best glamping we could have expected! Thank you!

We were in South Dakota for a family reunion and most of the others were staying in a hotel in Deadwood. We wanted more of a nature aspect. This cabin was equipped with just what we needed. Good location for what we wanted to see, friendly people and Starla was very helpful at the time of making the reservation. We would love to stay here again!!

Had a great time. It was the kids first time in South Dakota. (We live in WI) Everyone we met was nice. We hope to come back next year!
Preparing to head out for one last adventure at Needles Highway and then back to Minnesota. The fly fishing for trout was a BLAST! Nothing is more beautiful than this canyon! You were all so friendly and helpful! We will be back…..
06/08/2017 - Sheryl and Laura (Mom and Daughter) - NE and CO
We loved it! Nice place to stage our sightseeing out of and gambling in Deadwood at night. We’ll return!

Tornado hunter tour - we stopped here for 2 nights while storm chasing. This was a nice change from hotel stays. Adorable cabins and very friendly staff. Our crew is from Saskatchewan, Canada!

Thank you for the most lovely stay on our best friends road trip out West. We loved listening to oldies on the radio, telling ghost stories at night and drinking coffee in the morning.
08/14/2016 - Tom and Kathy
Kathy and I have been coming here for 30+ years. Every morning when we wake up here I yell out “Wickiup Everyone”….never gets a laugh - maybe next year. Wonderful place!

Our last day of 5 fun and restful days here. Beautiful setting and sweet historic cabins - loved the sleeping porches. And you have all been so friendly and helping - making us feel at home. The kids thought tubing down the creek was grand - just couldnt get enough of it. Thank you so much for everything!

Twice as Nice! We considered our first visit "life altering". It changed our perspectives in so many ways. It's tempting fate to return in hopes of recreating such an amazing experience but we did. These people touch your heart so deeply. It feels like home with friends you will know and love forever. We cannot not wait to enjoy the fall colors next year. My heartfelt thank you to Starla for your love and thoughtfulness. Jackie and Les, you are the most welcoming hosts! So much love to you all!!

We had a wonderful 3 days at the Ole Pioneer Cabin. No TV, No problem. We played poker until the wee hours. The night air on the front porch was great. Slept like babies. Nice, friendly atmosphere. Thanks for a memorable time!

We had fun in the Black Hills. We had fun ATVing with Black Hills Off-Road Rentals and touring Deadwood. The cabin was very nice and relaxing. We had a fun time! Now back to the Twin Cities.

Friendly hosts, beautiful comfortable setting. We loved the weather which was very refreshing compared to our South Louisiana heat. It was so nice to have simple peace and quiet. We leave today but wish our stay was longer. Take care and thanks for your kindness!

Our stay here was fun and relaxing. Everyone here was very nice. We cant wait to come back. Thanks!

From the moment we called to make reservations to the day that we left, we were treated with a most genuine hometown hospitality. Jackie and Les are wonderful and Starla has missed her calling with the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce. She was spot on with ideas that made our stay perfect when it came to activities and food. Her sincerity is sheer delightful and we are most grateful to her. If you are looking to enjoy simple things and peace while you are here, you are in the right place. Enjoy! Thank you Jackie, Les and Starla.
