Camping at our Nature Retreat

For personal reasons, we will NOT accept bookings from potential camping guests for this summer season of 2023. 

We are sorry and apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause potential camping guests.

We are however open to the idea of an Airbnb Co-Host or work camper to take on the camping at Plenty Star Retreat for the 2024 season.

Jack and Isa Kirk

Join us for a chat and a coffee or tea, oatmeal and fresh fruit in the morning on the porch of our home.

Bring your hiking shoes, bicycles or motor bikes, your RVs, tents and hammocks or stay in one of our rustic, home built camping log cabins or in our Lakota style tipi.

From May through  September,  Jack and I open our home place to a limited number of  camping guests, booking through online platforms such as or through direct contact in this page as well as guests coming in increasing numbers who are interested in one or more of  Isa’s offerings such as Essential Touch treatments, Tarot Readings, scheduled seminars or group events etc..

Plenty Star Retreat is a peaceful 10 acre place, surrounded by National Forest, with ponds and creeks, as well as many huge willow and pine trees, just a few miles South of Custer, in the Southern Black Hills, of South Dakota.

From its location along Hwy 385, and the Mickelson Trail, both, Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park, as well as all the other Black Hills attractions, such as Mt. Rushmore,  Crazy Horse Monument and Devil’s Tower, are within short driving distances.

The surrounding area offers numerous hiking trails and lakes. Smaller towns like Custer, 10 miles North or Hot Springs, 24 miles South, offer a variety of interesting shops and some really good restaurants.

Enjoy watching the local wildlife frequently visiting or place, sit around the campfires in the evenings.

You will have access to fast WiFi everywhere throughout the camping area, but are also more than welcome to use the electric outlets and seating options on our porch during the day as long as there is not an event going on you are not participating in.

We cater to teens (from age 16) and adults for our services and events and therefore this is not a place and time for young children.

No pets and smoking allowed anywhere on the property.

Note: Unfortunately our guest restroom at the garage and the outdoor solar shower facility are not very suitable for wheelchair users.

However – the new covered patio and porch areas are wheelchair accessible and so is our home !
