1880 Homestead Cabin

This is the real deal folks. Just like the homesteaders slept during the westward movement in the 1880’s, you too can experience what it’s like to be a homesteader out on the prairie. Be like Laura Ingalls and let the song of the coyotes lull you to sleep. Our cabin sits miles away from any other building out on the edge of the White River in the South Dakota Badlands on our family run Circle View Guest Ranch. It’s a genuine experience you’ll never forget! Just a 6 mile drive to the main headquarters of Badlands National Park.

This original homestead cabin was included in a NEW YORK TIMES article in 2010!

Please know this cabin is an original homestead built circa 1880 and does not have running water or electricity. Guests at the homestead need to bring their own bedding (2 full-sized
beds), drinking water, firewood and basic camping supplies. There is a functional, authentic wooden outhouse in the yard for your use, no shower. The cabin sits on the edge of White River, 1-mlle away from the main house and is easily accessible by car during dry conditions. This cabin is the BEST place on the ranch to escape modern life and truly experience South Dakota history.

Cabin has a fire pit with cooking grate just steps away from the front door.
