We enjoyed our 3 nights at the cabins, while here we visited Devils Tower, Badlands, Roughlock Falls. Enjoyed a day in Deadwood and seeing all the sights there. We love this area and hope to come back.

Enjoyed a family vacation with nieces, nephew, brother and sister. Firepit nights, day hikes, Devils Tower, local towns offered lots of opportunities to create family memories. Thanks for the hospitality.

Trailed our motorcycle from Houston, TX. We had a real fun time here in this part of our country. Beautiful people, good weather (sometimes a little cold for us Texans), and beautiful scenery where we rode our motorcycle. From Wall, Badlands, Sturgis, Rapid City, Keystone, Spearfish and all the restaurants and bars we went too. We are really taking beautiful memories from South Dakota. Jackie and Les were the best hostesses ever. We loved them and all the other people who have made this trip so unique to us. Thank you!

Rode motorcycle from East Texas - Tyler to be here for the 78th Sturgis Rally. It’s my boyfriend (TBird) and my first time - virgins! Starla is an awesome host and the cabins are perfection! The scenery is gorgeous! We cant thank you again for the great experiences. Love you!

Another week in Paradise! Even with a power outage and the occasional rain =) Great time as always; rekindled friendships with other “regulars” and made new friends with “newbies”. Wickiup is a gem and are so grateful to have found you guys 5 years ago. Will keep coming back til we can’t ride no more.

This place is awesome. Lovely cabin, great view, nice people and good fishing. Definitely recommend a walk up to cheyenne crossing and take a left at a pretty pond on the side of the road. Thanks so much!

Came out to visit the area after our toilet flooded our basement hours before leaving Sioux Falls. Showed up in the dark and could hear the awesome sound of the stream. We came out to the hills to enjoy a weekend getaway with one another after falling in love in the black hills early this summer, we enjoyed hiking to Devil’s Bath Tub and Bridal Veil falls and took old western pics downtown Deadwood. And a great time and added lifelong memories in the area. Great cabin and cozy in the chilly low light hours. Enjoyed a nice steak and potato dinner on the BBQ and bud lights. Have to head home in the AM. Very nice fall drive!

Come up for a one night getaway. This was our first visit. Really enjoyed the cabin and scenery. The owners hospitality was a definite plus. Loved the “Prospector” and being near the river. Wonderful atmosphere. Plan to return. The weather was cool and rainy but the cabin stayed warm and cozy. Great night for playing cards and watching a movie.

To Les and Jackie - Thank you so much, we came out to enjoy the hills for our 1 year wedding anniversary and had a great time! We definitely will be back in the future! What an awesome location and atmosphere. Thank you for making it memorable.

Dear Les and Jackie, Enjoyed a long weekend for the second time here this summer! Our first time having breakfast at Cheyenne Crossing. It was wonderful. We would highly recommend it. Very peaceful and relaxing time, yet again. We will be back again!

Thanks for such a comfortable stay. The cabin and the stream and nearby hikes were just what we needed for a week away. The weather could not have been better. Everyone around us was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.
So grateful that we stayed here on our way out to Seattle. Ive been learning more and more about how knowing those before us brings us closer to knowing ourselves. My great and great great grandpa worked in the homestake mines, grandma grew up in Lead and she honeymooned with my Grandpa in the Wickiup Cabins and my mom came out here growing up on vacation and stayed in the cabins. Ive been here before I can remember but now I’m here and will never forget. Thank you Black Hills, thank you to all those before me.

Wonderful place to stay in the Black Hills. Would come stay here again. Lovely creek running through it. So crisp and clean. Very friendly and kind owner Jackie.

This was my first stop in the start of a year-long solo road trip across the US. I've been coming to Wickiup with my family since the late 90's but haven't visited since 2007. So, when I decided to hit the road, I knew this would be the perfect place to start - And it was!
-Breakfast at Cheyenne Crossing
-Beautiful drive up the canyon on 14
-Easy hike (about 2 miles) on Roughlock Falls Trail
-Had a good beer and met some great people at Crow Peak Brewery Co.
-Lost $40 way too fast in Deadwood casinos :)
-Dinner at Lewie's, where my brothers and I need to go during Bike Week.
Now I'm off to Denver, with a few stops planned along the way. Thanks Les for the great chat my first night. I hope to be back soon!

Scouting for elk and elk hunting. Saw a lot at the beginning but slowing down. Nice cozy cabin. I got a 6x7 great bull elk!

We enjoyed our stay though it wasn't long enough. I'm sure we will be back. Keep your eyes on "Him."

We really enjoyed out stay here. We will definitely be back again! :)

Paul and I traveled via motorcycle all the way from Tampa Bay, FL for the 75th Rally. Les and Jackie worked with us for a year on our reservation and always kept in touch. They made us feel more than welcome during our stay and we wouldn't have expected anything different from them. The creek is awesome, tubing was quite the experience. Very cold but worth it. The nightly camp fire gatherings are a great way to end a day of riding the hills. The cabins and the grounds are well worth it and add to the overall experience. We surely plan on coming back and know exactly where we will stay. Hope they have room for us. We have nothing but the best to say about Wickiup Cabins and hope anyone who visits has the same great experience as we did. Thank you for the memories!

Many thanks Les, Jackie and the whole staff! 2nd year here for a week of riding the hills, which always proves challenging and thrilling. Pre - week has become our favorite time here - no heavy traffic but plenty of activity in Sturgis, Deadwood, Lead and Hill City. Recommend Circle B Chuckwagon dinner show in Hill City! Looking forward to next year and more scintillating conversations and maybe a campfire songfest! P.S the creek has amazing healing properties :)

We stayed here two days and 1 night. The cabin was adorable and everyone staying here were so friendly. Will recommend this place to friends! The area is so beautiful - the falls, the trees, everything. We enjoyed several hours in Lead discovering all the mining secrets and just checking out the cute homes. We watched glass blowing in Deadwood and discovered the most wonderful truffles and ice cream at Chubby Chipmunk. Brought them back to the cabin for a late night snack. Off to Spearfish today and then back to North Dakota! Great weekend to see Dad's amazing handy work, Plan to visit again!

Hi, The village was very welcoming and the cabins were very cute. Loved the area and would come back again. Thanks for the wonderfulness in the wilderness. Enjoyed the waterfalls.

Stayed here for two nights over the holiday weekend. Went to all the surrounding cities and mountain towns. Great views and geography in the area. Lakes are great. Maybe someday I will come back. For now back to Colorado.
