We Are Central to Everything the Black Hills Has to Offer!

Are you looking for a relaxing getaway? Consider Campfire Cabins and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Black Hills.

Spend your days visiting historic landmarks, quaint Hills towns, or parks and lakes, then come back to your cabin to rest and relax by our large campfire site. As you sit out and enjoy the campfire, you can see the stars with no light pollution. Depending on the time of year you can hear the owls calling to one another, hear the singing of the coyotes, the bugling of the elk, or listen to the turkey as they get ready to roost. Our cabins help you to enjoy the action packed days of your vacation even more by giving you a place to come and relax and enjoy nature at the end of your day.

NEW for 2018! These cabins are centrally located to everything the Black Hills has to offer! We are just 2 miles from Pactola lake, located along Hwy 385, pavement the entire way with only a short gravel drive to the cabins.

Our cabins are modern and have tasteful finishes. Decorated in the genre of wildlife, Black Hills history and native american traditions of the local area. We have used locally sourced materials in our building as well as highlighting local artists in our decor. Each master bed is covered with an authentic hand made native star quilt.

The outdoor area has a large fire pit with seating, gas grill, picnic tables, and yard games.

We are centrally located, within 30 minutes or less of nearly all that the hills have to offer such as Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Deadwood and Sturgis.

About Us

Campfire Cabins is proudly owned by Al and Sarah Sutton.  We grew up in the Black Hills. We were high school sweethearts and married after high school. We then moved to Rapid City for work. 25 years and 6 kids later we had the opportunity to purchase land and move back to the Black Hills. We soon realized how much we had missed the beauty and serenity of the local area.

We decided to turn our property into an organic home hobby farm/ranch with multiple gardens, chickens & ducks, goats, and the occasional cow or eight. We also decided to build cabins near our home to share our new found love with others wanting to experience all the Black Hills have to offer. With two children still at home we now own and operate the cabins as a home family business. We look forward to getting to know you and be an added blessing to your Black Hills experience.
