I was lucky to be part of Phil's first weekend ever open and returned annually for the next four years. I went back again in 2006 and noticed the changes since he took a marvelous bride Amy. Expect to be treated with respect like one of the family at the Circle View Guest Ranch. This is a working ranch that has been going for several generations. If you even feel up to it you can help out with ranch chores! The location is great- so close to the Badlands Park and National Grasslands. The deck view of the river is wonderful. The rooms are cozy (thank you Phil and Amy for saving the top bunk for me) and the food (breakfast) amazing! My son is almost four and I can't wait to take him to the Circle View for a family vacation in beautiful Western South Dakota. No place on earth like this.
