Delicious things cooking up at Palmer Gulch Resort!

August 16, 2012

One of the best parts of a vacation is the food-hands down.

Worries of overeating, counting calories, and sticking to favorites go out the window as travelers around the world begin their summer adventures in search of rejuvenation. Regular orders are replaced with new experiences, and preferences are exchanged with the excitement of the unknown. For those vacationing in South Dakota, Palmer Gulch Resort has the exciting taste of something new for all ages.

A visitor won’t be able to find an authentic horse drawn wagon ride in very many places, but at Palmer Gulch, a Chuck Wagon Dinner is just one of the many unique dinner options available. An evening celebrating the old west begins with a wagon ride into the Black Hills National Forest and will end with a mouth-watering, slow cooked meal accompanied by down-home cowboy music.


Dine in a 1920s Lodge Room and get a taste of homemade BBQ sauce all while enjoying an amazing view of Harney Peak at Ponderosa Restaurant. Open from May 1 to October 1, this family owned business offers everything from steaks to salads. Thirsty? Look right next door and visit the Mountain Canyon Pub, which offers an assortment of domestic and import beers along with an exceptional selection of wines. Located a few steps from Palmer Gulch lodge, Ponderosa Restaurant and Mountain Canyon Pub is a great spot to meet up with family and friends while on your vacation.


For those who need daily coffee, Palmer Gulch Grapes and Grinds can help start the day out on the right track. Rushmore Roast specialty coffee brewed fresh from locally roasted coffee beans charges visitors up with all the energy they need to explore their destination. Winding down in the evening with wine-tastings of local and specialty wines will relaxes and replenishes visitors for the next day.


A small hometown experience combined with the smell of the golden brown pancakes and maple syrup is something that all Black Hills visitors should experience. Papa's Pancake Tent at Palmer Gulch Resort serves all-you-can-eat pancakes from Memorial Day to Labor Day.


Just in case a visitor’s sweet tooth needs attention, TurtleTown Ice Cream Parlor and Fiddlesticks offer everything it could wish for. With nostalgic treats ranging from nachos and pizza to icecream and sno cones these Hill City South Dakota sweet shops offer a selection for any age.
