Enjoyed a camping/hiking trip in the Black Hills with a a cold that is weighing me down. 90 degrees yesterday, tonight a low of 43 degrees so Wickiup to the rescue. One cabin available for a shower, a place to cook indoors and a nice cozy bed. Thank you! Enjoyed our respite here.

Crazy Trip!! Slept in our car last night because Percy (our car) couldn’t make it through the flash flood stream to get to our tents and in the morning my mom found this cabin to stay in. I LOVE IT. It is 1000000X better than having to sleep in our car. We’re originally from Bismarck, ND. xoxo, Mae, 12 years old

Brought my 14 and 12 year old girls to the Black Hills for a “wireless” good bonding time and thats exactly what we’ve had. Great cabin, great hosts, and so happy you had an opening tonight! - Jen, Mae’s Mom

This is our 2nd trip to Wickiup and the Black Hills. It has stolen my heart! We love the people here. The beauty that surrounds this place is good for the soul. These cabins are so cute and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking our meals and being here rather then going out to eat. Steaks on the grill and listening to the river - who could top that. We are definitely coming back! Love to all.

Riding real bikes (bicycles) from Michigan to the pacific.  1,500+ miles in so far.  South Dakota has been beautiful since hitting the Badlands and the Mickelson Trail is on point.

This was our first time here.  We came for the Total Archery Challenge on Terry Peak.  The cabin was wonderful!  Just cozy enough and honestly felt homey to us.  We absolutely love the Black Hills and try to come as often as we can.  We will certainly be coming back to Wickiup!!! Loved it!!

"Under a crescent moon, around a smoke-serpent fire, listening to a river's croon. We made the World a place to inspire."

This is the memory seared into our bones of this wonderful retreat on the bend.

We drove through Spearfish Canyon with no plans or reservations. God led us to this adorable little cabin and we've enjoyed every moment here!   Awesome sense of community and family right away.  What a beautiful hidden gem! :) We will definitely be back and recommend to others!
