The pandemic has been tough on many industries in South Dakota, including tourism and visitor services. And yet, Custer State Park posted record visitation numbers last year, and inquiries from potential visitors are up. As some people dream of a post-COVID travel binge, others are visiting the state now, in the middle of the pandemic, seeking wide open spaces and indoor dining.
