Custer's Gulch RV Park and Campground also has its place in history. In August of 1874 the exploratory Black Hills Expedition of General George A. Custer made this the site of their permanent camp. The Gold Discovery that started the rush of 1875 was on nearby French Creek. Modern day visitors can enjoy the beauty, history, and climate of this valley that has enticed people for over a century. Below is a photo taken at Custer's Gulch in 1874 during Custer's expedition.
